When he thought of people who actually lived, he thought of people who followed their dreams. Regret can be caused by many things but James’ cam from his decision not to follow his dreams. In the story, the author used the symbol of James Maxwell being the president to show that no matter how far one gets in life, they will always have some regrets about what they chose to do with their life. James was one of the most influential people in the story. Most kids looked up to him and wanted to be him but that wasn’t enough.
A good example would be when Creon did not want to listen to the people of Thebes that told him that Antigone did the right thing. But instead he would rather listen to himself due to his excessive self-pride. In addition, all of the tragedies that Creon has made was because of him. He had lost his whole family because of his behavior as king. Creon had many chances not to start these tragedies but since he was king and had power, he had too much self pride and could not see that he had initiated many of the tragedies that he would make that he was soon going to regret.
The seven deadly sins are as lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. Violating a deadly sin is considered to be an immoral and evil act. Venial sins are lighter sins that do not determine whether one goes to
Even before that, because he was an orphan, he most likely had to provide for himself. Being thrown into such an important role required him to be strong, and to be strong, Griffith suppressed his emotions. As the leader of a group of mercenaries, he had no time to bother himself with human relationships. This suppression would eventually lead to a complete lack of understanding about his own feelings, developing a childlike and impulsive mentality. Griffith’s role as a leader also nullified any worth in anything other than his dream, eventually, letting his dream define him.

Glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall. Trial and error are usually the prime means of solving life’s problems. Yet many people are afraid to undertake the trial because they’re too afraid of experiencing the error. Too many today have cultures of perfection: a set of beliefs that any failure is unacceptable. Only pure, untainted success will do.
But out of fear that he would be like his father, he started becoming very irresponsible and did things without thinking. He was feared by many and loved by many as well which made him become a very respected member in his tribe. Eventually he could not stand watching his village change its morals and become modernized so he took his own life. His eagerness to stay original and fear of change become his own demise. If it were not for Umuofia 's geography, I believe that this story would have never even taken place.
Although people say that judgement is a thing only God can do legitimately, which is completely incorrect if you want to be happy, successful, and self-aware. One of the biggest issues in our society today is self-awareness, people are constantly afraid of what people think of them. When you meet people they adapt to what you like and what you expect from them, which in turn makes them not who they truly are. Happiness is one of the greatest virtues one can receive in life, because when you’re happy you will in turn be successful and self aware. This correlates to the film because John states that he is truly happy, because he can finally be himself as well as do what he wants.
Vonnegut says that individuals need to fight only to make his hero a power-hungry godlike creature, being both an unreachable ideal and unreliable threat. Vonnegut is implying that individuals are powerful but that does not mean every individual deserves to have power.

In Beowulf, it says “their ears could not hear his praise nor know his glory,” this is a connection to God in this epic, but in modern society, people with anxiety don’t hear praise they receive from others because they don’t believe it (lines 97-98). Grendel can’t help who his ancestors are, but he can help himself instead of living down to their expectations. In The Monster Called Anxiety, it says “The inside of my head is a loud place. Something is constantly bouncing around. I think about things I said or did years ago, about how ‘stupid’ I was,/ Anxiety makes me a difficult person to be friends with” (Ann).
