This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him. In addition, his thoughts and conflicts refer to his idea that if Caesar becomes king, that he will end up harming or endangering Rome. Brutus believes killing Caesar, results to the only solution to help and protect Rome, which relates back to his conflict. Overall, Brutus’ internal conflict involves deciding to kill Caesar, or not, because he does not necessarily want to kill Caesar, but sees it as the only way to protect Rome and its people. His love for Rome and the Roman people proves greater than his love for Caesar, who he somewhat looks to as a friend.

Power has a negative effect because it causes people to be stubborn and argue in such a competitive manner. First of all, when people in power feel challenged or questioned, they allow stubbornness to over take their reasoning. For example, when Creon makes his edict he did not realize that someone close to him would have such an issue with it, to the point where nothing was accomplished about Antigone and her trying to bury her brother. The only thing other than that was just arguing within the family, only tearing their family farther apart than it already was.

In the play, Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, the notion that hatred is stronger than love could be evidenced by the ancient grudge that exists between two feuding families in the city of Verona. Many have fallen prey to this vicious feud as it flourished through generations passed; children turn to bullies and men to killers as the vendetta draws the darkness from within them all; even the love between the star-crossed teens is tainted with the hatred and rage of their parents. On the other hand, the concept that love is stronger than hate can be witnessed through both the love from parent to child and between the two besotted.

Hercules’ task was to make himself appear as a god to everyone. A seeker’s task is to be true with the deeper self like Hercules did when winning everyone's trust and love back by being himself.

It is very important for a person to know his or her true identity. If you do not already know what your true identity is, you must discover it.

It is very ironic because while at the Front, all the men were discussing on what they are planning to do once the get home, but reality is nothing will ever be the same, wherever they go. Paul was the first to exhibit that loss of hope. I agree with the main thesis of this book that war is uncalled for, it is just a game that ruins innocent lives of the young population while the nations that they are fighting for are using them as toys, all just politics. The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
Power. A word as described by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as possession of control, authority, or influence over others. Yet in the world, often times the other side of power is overshadowed by those reaching to attain it.

In the classic novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the case of Justine Moritz is a strong argument of one side of power.
