Other proofs of this motivation being important for the play can be found in various dismissing remarks about prophecies the protagonist and Jocasta make: “Ha! Ha! O dear Jocasta, why should one / look to the Pythian hearth?” (Sophocles 1086-1087); “O oracles of the Gods, where are you now?” (Sophocles 1068). But the ending of the story is meant to reveal how mistaken their words are, with all the prophecies fulfilling and leading to the family’s
The things people lie for in our society shouldn 't have lied for that reason because it 's just the stupid things people lie for or do the dumbest things to get out of trouble.

How would you know if someone was lying to you how would you know the truth would you just know or would you like figure out later get mad and dont be there friend or you just know them
He does not try to prove the certainty of the existence of other minds. The only other entity that is mentioned in the Second Meditation is an “evil genius,” a deceiver of sorts who tries to mislead Descartes and place thoughts in his mind of that of which he is uncertain (Meditations on First Philosophy pg. 18: 26). Throughout the meditation, he goes back and forth about his existence and it is evident that that is what is of concern to him. This aids us in focusing our attention on the real subject
Friar is saying that he broke the severest laws by marrying Romeo and Juliet without the consent of their parents leading him to believe he is responsible for everything. The quote, "We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take the responsibility to own it and make it better." by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. This applies to the story not by Friar blaming himself but Friar believes that Romeo and Juliet and even their families believe that he is the whole reason for all this misery.Friar stating this causes a ripple in the tone because no one would ever think they would be hearing a priest say this.
Descartes, however, acknowledge in his First Meditation that his perception of the truth, however, had mainly originated from the senses. On the other hand, he also came to a realization that much of the opinions he held in his youth were in fact false, which in turn gave rise to doubts regarding subsequent knowledge that was built upon such foundation. Such knowledge, to Descartes, could only provide him a relative certainty while the pursuit of knowledge demands an absolute certainty. However, the Descartes considered it impossible to refute his erroneous opinions one by one, thus he decided to revise the whole foundation for his knowledge by postulating a new approach towards scientific knowledge (Discourse on Method and Meditations on First Philosophy, p.59-60). The method of Universal Doubt was thus formulated in the First Meditation as an attempt to complete what Galileo had commenced: it directly assaulted the foundation of the old science by questioning it foundation, which was built upon sensual perception and point out the need for a new system of
This is what Hamlet suffers through in the play. He is depressed and suicidal as indicated in his infamous quote, “To be, or not to be: that is the question.” (3.1.57). Yet, while many may choose to carry on after the death of a loved one, Hamlet chose to hold on to his sorrow. He pretended to be insane so he can know the truth behind his father’s death. Hamlet’s tragic life is not the cause for his madness.
Although Claudius and Macbeth’s ambitions had similar effects on their relationships and conscience, the thing that ultimately sets these two characters apart is the difference in beliefs they have when it comes to killing. As a result of letting their ambition for political power consume their lives, both Claudius and Macbeth destroyed the relationship between the people they loved the most; their wives. In Hamlet after Claudius learns that Hamlet knows that he killed his brother, Claudius becomes resentful of Hamlet. Afraid that Hamlet will tell his secret and no longer be in power, Claudius planned to kill Hamlet in a fencing match between Hamlet and Laertes. But because Claudius was so focused on his ambitions of being king and trying to murder Hamlet in the match, he couldn’t save his wife from the poison he put in a cup that was intended for Hamlet.
Ophelia goes mad throughout the story. She is overwhelmed by the loss of her father and the rejection of Hamlet. Her character is seen spiraling down a dark path that also ends in death. Ophelia is depicted as not having control over her actions; speaking and acting erratically. While Hamlet is speaking erratically and behaving oddly, he still maintains control over his actions and movement throughout the story.
Unfortunately, it was too much for Portia. She could not take Brutus constantly sneaking around and not knowing his secret. In result, she ended up killing herself because of his actions. Just like Chris and Ismene from the other two stories, Brutus does what he believes is the best for his family, and instead, all of the neglect he was giving to Portia made her kill herself, hurting him in the
