Coinciding with the persuading throughout the book, there seems to be two types of gentlemen, Sir Walter Elliot, vain and self-centered, and Captain Wentworth, well-mannered and kind. The book Persuasion makes the reader think about whether or not the concept of persuading others and being persuaded is a positive or negative concept. The definition of persuade is to prevail on someone to do something, as by advising or urging. Throughout the book, decisions are being made because someone has been persuaded or has persuaded others into a decision. This concept of persuasion can be dangerous or helpful.
Pilgrims without Wampanoag help would have perished. The peace was hard to maintain by the generational conflicts between Josiah Winslow and Phillip. The tension never stopped because of the goods and economic benefits that could be obtained. Bradford believed that "God must one day show his displeasure," (198), giving space to the disconcerting influence of intolerance, avarice, and racism dissecting this complicated
For example, in the movie he showed no mercy when start he slap one of the soldier, sent him to another outfit and called him cowered in front of everyone.

God hated Esau for the following reasons: First, he was worldly and arrogant; He did not regard the importance of his birthright and its eternal significance exchanging it with some bread and lentil stew to Jacob to satisfy his hunger (Genesis 25:31-34). Second, he married Canaanite women, which were detestable to God (Genesis 28:9). Clearly, Esau’s life and character was a complete picture of weakness instead of strength (Genesis 49:3); Therefore, God made Esau a servant to his twin brother, Jacob, whose life and faith strongly symbolized hope and power in the Lord that God’s people should emulate— God clearly revealed this truth to Rebekah before she
God’s lack of presence throughout the length of the film in contrast with the incessant guidance of Him in the book had created more ambivalence about who has the authority to choose the criteria of judgement. On the ambiguity of goodness, Methuselah, Noah’s grandfather, exclaims: “Good is good. Good is wicked. How am I supposed to know what is right?” Furthermore, though the lively depiction in the movie shows us how greedy a person can be, it also exposes the goodness that is obscurely present in human’s mind. For instance, deep down in Noah’s wife selfish wish of finding wives for his sons against God’s supposed will is an altruistic desire for her sons’ happiness in the life after the flood.
Throughout the book Les Miserable, Jean does selfless acts that could potentially put his life in danger, however that did not stop him, he always seemed to do the right things. To start off, “The arm seized a loaf of bread and took it out… The thief had thrown away they bread… It was Jean Valjean” (23). Jean was not stealing the bread out of selfishness, it was to feed his sister and his sisters kids who were starved to death. Valjean and his sister were poor and could not provide the essential needs for his family. He was not stealing for himself but was stealing to help his family out.
By being so greedy, only caring about his opinions, beating his wife for saying things he disagreed with, and not accepting any offers the jewelry stores were offering brought him bad luck. Also, by caring about his family 's future, not present life distracted him and made him into a bad man. In my opinion, this book teaches lots of useful lessons and everyone should take in
Pride often leads to someone’s downfall - this idea has been developed from the playwright “Oedipus the king” through Rey’s interactive oral presentation. He discussed that Oedipus’ excessive pride over his knowledge due to solving riddles allows him to not listen to others including the respected Prophet , his dear relative Kreon - he seldom pays heed to them and decides to pursue further for searching the predecessor’s murderer . His own path opens up hidden , dark truth about his life. From the presentation it has been evident that Oedipus was not smart enough to realize that the path he set for himself, will eventually bring nothing but pain. Oedipus guaranteed to the citizens of Thebes that he will definitely cooperate, and banish

Oedipus gets angry because Tiresias wIll not reveal the murderer of Laius. It is very clever to use this scene to show Oedipus’s temper because this side of him has not been shown. If they did not show this scene the audience/reader may not believe Oedipus is capable of the murders at the crossroads. It’s like Tiresias makes Oedipus angry on purpose so the audience/reader figures out the truth without him actually saying it. W. J. Verdenius quotes, “Tiresias is at once a traditionalist and an exceedingly clever man.” Tiresias’ ironic behavior and attitude towards revealing prophecy makes him symbolic to the
