He seems to bypasses her wants there as well as in the confessing of who Daisy really loves and we never see him ask her. Allowing your own dreams cloud your vision and block others doesn’t always lead you down the best path, as he becomes very selfish when it comes to
Ironically he does so by doing nothing. Nick Carraway’s passive nature leads to the many mishaps in the novel, which stresses the idea that not being evil does not necessarily make someone a good person. “I’m inclined to reserve all judgements” (1) Nick states at the beginning of the novel, which instantly sets up his passivity. His passiveness sparks complications early on, such as when Tom takes Nick to meet Myrtle in secret. Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly.

Sammy takes off his apron, folds it and places it on his third counter slot. Watching with astonishment, Lengel says, “‘You'll feel this for the rest of your life.’” Sammy’s decision is stated by all as a terrible mistake.
To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55). Here, Jekyll is stating that he represses his private desires so much and wants the irregularities in life so badly that he finally faces a challenge, whether to keep his private figure hidden or to reveal it to society and subsequently be judged by society. He now has to make a life changing decision, if he continues to enjoy his pleasures secretly, he will have it on his conscience daily and be tormented by the guilt; if he confesses them, he will no longer have the guilt on his conscience, but he will also be judge harshly by society.

Throughout the novel, Gatsby is regarded as a self-made gentleman who doesn’t drink at his own parties due to his morals.

This makes him depressed, and therefore drinks to make himself feel better. This condition also makes him an incompetent, but when he is asked to sober up by an angry Katniss, he makes a deal with them, saying: “All right, I’ll make a deal with you. You don’t interfere with my drinking, and I’ll stay sober enough to help you.” (Collins, 2008, p.70) Katniss and Haymitch are not very good friends and they despise each other.

Although they don’t get along, he helps her, by communicating with her through the gifts he sends to her in the arena, and Katniss realizes that she and Haymitch are very much alike as they both understands each other.
Although the Miller’s tale is interesting and well written, it’s not quite morally sound and is nothing compared to the Knight and his tale. The Knight is in the upper class while the Miller is with the city folk who are turning into the new middle class. The Miller upset the host when he began his tale because of the order of the tales were suppose to follow the social class structure, but the Miller drunkenly insisted in following right after the Knight when it was suppose to be the Monk. The subject of the Knight’s tale was way more interesting and appropriate compared to the Miller’s Tale who’s tale consisted of adultery and inappropriate acts of love. Finally, there were lessons in each tale of course but the Knight’s lesson far surpasses that of the Miller’s.
Rodolpho gets annoyed that Eddie has created tension and uncertainty between them, he is aware that if Eddie’s obsession takes over he wont be able to have a future with Catherine. This could possibly link back to Eddie’s relationship with Catherine and how he perhaps he wants to keep her to himself as he feels that Rodolpho is taking control. Equally Eddie doesn’t feel comfortable when Rodolpho speaks to him as he says, “he gives me the heeby jeebies”. This response to Beatrice reveals his deeply embedded discomfort at Rodolpho’s flamboyant acts, which could infer that Eddie could even be homophobic. Although this can be argued as Eddie could be hiding his own sexual ambiguity, possibly having strong homosexual urges he couldn’t deal with.
