The Greek myths, “Phaethon” and “Daedalus and Icarus”, both share the same theme about pride. Each author uses characterization, conflict and imagery to help show the theme.

Why is doing something that is expected of us make us feel remorse? Let’s put it this way, if someone told you to hurt someone or they would hurt you, you would probably do it, but you would still feel horrible.

The symptoms that isolation can cause aren't good. They cause more problems then to just give the outcasted a chance to show that they're different, kind, that they also have dreams and life
This next quote shows that society made Roger scared of throwing rocks because of the punishments that come along with doing wrong things. “Roger’s arm was conditioned by a civilization that knew nothing of him and was in ruins” (Golding 91). Roger’s arm just expects punishment and does not think that there will not be consequences.

In conclusion, children may seem naive which they are, naturally they would do things much differently if they were exposed to things instead of being sheltered from
