And how dare you even try To tarnish this man’s virtue with a lie”(Tartuffe 3.6.19-20). Tartuffe’s greatest act in the play is shown when he begins to tell Orgon his true demeanor. He tried to take piety on himself by bashing himself so that Orgon would feel bad. “ Yes, my brother, I’m wicked through and through. The most miserable of sinners, I.
Lover! Appear thou in the likeness of a sigh, speak but one rhyme and I am satisfied.” When Romeo is distressed by his love for Rosaline, he states love is rough. Mercutio responds to Romeo, “If love be rough with you, be rough with love. Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.” The death of Mercutio changes the tone of the story of Romeo and Juliet, while at death’s door, Mercutio states “A plague o’ both your houses. They have made worm’ meat of me.
“All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride” (Sophocles 42). The tragedy Antigone, by Sophocles, highlights a multitude of essential themes, including the undoing of those with excessive pride. Creon, full of pride, refuses to listen to reason, locking away Antigone for her eventual death. The theme of pride leading to one’s downfall is shown through Haimon, the Choragus, and Tiresias.
The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever. "( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) The meaning is moral pain is same as physical pain, and when someone suffers a lot of moral pain, he can not live too. Except love, Werther is pessimistic when he faces other problems. He signs: “That the life of man is but a dream, many a man has surmised heretofore; and I, too, am everywhere pursued by this feeling. When I consider the narrow limits within which our active and inquiring faculties are confined; when I see how all our energies are wasted in providing for mere necessities, which again have no further end than to prolong a wretched existence.”( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) When he does not meet Charlotte, he always writes pessimistic things in the letter.
“You cannot be my father Odysseus! Meddling spirits conceived this trick to twist the knife in me!” (295). Clearly, his time spent among the suitors had influenced him to distrust the words of others. When Odysseus proves that he is his father, they reunite and weep until sundown. Normally, it is peculiar to immediately trust a person after a few sentences of proof, much less share a plan together.
Telemachus looks and acts the part of his father, astonishing those who presumably knew him as a boy. Let us begin with logos. The offspring of Odysseus worries that his father may not be alive but still must free his home of undesirable suitors. “My distinguished father is lost, who ruled among you once, mild as a father, and there is now this evil still: my
A proctor does not make decisions based on his reputation. He makes decisions based on his morals. It is his enemy who finds fault in a proctor to better his/her own reputation. Society – in the past, present, and future – will fabricate stories around the proctor in order to “protect” it. In Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Wickham is an example of an evil-minded man who calls calumny on an innocent man.
This joke by Hicks ultimately sums up what he is trying to point out throughout his entire standup career. Hicks’ jokes make the audience laugh because they are forced to reflect on their own narrow and often hypocritical views. One popular joke that he tends to come back to in several routines is joke about Christianity. Strongly tied to the Jewish comedy tradition, his jokes about religion often show the absurdity of the audience to believe in the way that they do. Hicks is successful in doing this by not entirely dismissing the Christian religion, but instead poking fun at some of their core beliefs including the wearing of the cross.
It is in these bizarre acts that the others deem Meursault a stranger. His disregard for social constructions presents the views of the existentialist philosophy. Love is known to be deception by existential theory due to one’s desire to have someone else love him or her. Also, as mentioned before, Meursault’s conviction in God’s nonexistence makes him detached not only concerning death, but also to love, morals (Meursault also befriends his neighbor, who is also thought to be a pimp by others), and other basic human conceptions. When new friend-the pimp- asks for his help to embarrass his ex-girlfriend, Meursault again with any consideration agrees to something that would have normally been thought of as insane, and does not contemplate that there may be consequences for this agreement.
What can thy silence do for him, except it tempt him-yea, compel him, as it were-to add hypocrisy to sin (Hawthorne 58)?" Arthur says this when he wants Hester to reveal his name as the adulterer. He cannot bring it upon himself to confess and instead wants
