There are no players, and no winning or losing. Once the "pieces" are placed in position, the rules determine everything that happens later. Nevertheless, Life is full of surprises! In most cases, it is impossible to look at a starting position or pattern and see what will happen in the future. The only way to find out is to follow the rules of life.
Many other knights would run but Gawain understands that he has to have courage and must be honest about going to meet the green knight and fulfill his deal. One other virtue of chivalry that Gawain presents is courtesy. Gawain shows courtesy to the ladies of the castle. The pearl poet creates this scene: “His acquaintance they requested, and quickly he begged/ to be their servant in sooth, if so they desired” (40. 7-8).
He becomes overwhelmingly engrossed in his personal philosophy of the extraordinary man. Believing that he is able to make any immoral action without repercussion, Raskolnikov’s personal philosophy is ultimately the reason he is able to carry out the murders. The murder is his attempt to validate his idea that he is, in fact, superior and above the law. Raskolnikov realizes he failed to be become whom he had envisioned himself as. Through his inability to suppress his erratic behavior and overcome his overwhelming sense of guilt, he proves that he is just like the rest of humanity.
He suggests that “all of us have a share in it. I have mine. I cannot tell and I shall never know how many words of mine might have given birth to cruelty in place of love and kindness and charity” (64-65). Darrow shows sincerity in his beliefs and owns up to the part he had in these boys’ upbringing through society. By establishing the fact that he is not insulting the court or trying to rationalize murder, Darrow can clearly show he is only trying to stop the court from giving these children an onerous burden they will have to endure--until their deaths.
Take a moment to imagine a world that is plain. There is no music, no art, or any other form entertainment. So much in the world would be missed. This world would be a dreadful place to live wouldn’t it? That is a world without entertainment.
Although he is considered a murderer for his actions now, he saved more lives by taking the one life of Beatty. Montag is justified in killing Beatty and destroying The Hound because he was protecting himself, along with his friend. Sometimes protecting a friend is the most important thing you have to do. Montag knew that he had to protect Faber’s life and killing Beatty would keep Faber safe. He was not in the wrong for doing so because he knew someone was going to die.
After Gawain chops the Green Knights head off, the Green Knight states before his head getting axed off, “…you must solemnly swear that you’ll seek me yourself” (394-395). Since Gawain is a noble knight, he of course keeps his promise although it’s seemingly terrifying to him. As the theme
the Count of Monte Cristo slowly achieved justice through his own works by bringing Danglars, Fernand, Villefort and Caderousse to ruin but later on learned a valuable lesson that only God can punish the wicked and enjoyed the rest of his life with Haydee. The main goal of the character was to pursue revenge and bring forth vengeance unto everyone who was involved in the false accusation of Edmond’s said disloyalty. He was eager to set things right and for justice to be served. The hindrance of the Count of Monte Cristo in fulfilling his task was the risk of revealing his true identity of being Edmond Dantes. By affirming his true character, he can possibly be arrested again since he was still considered as a criminal to the law at a specific part of the book and not be able to fulfill his purpose.
If there is one who does not do any harms to other people and spends his entire life to fight the unfair and irrational things surrounding him, to take care of his family and friends, maybe when he past, there is no fame and no fortune, does his life change the world? The answer is absolutely yes. Because of him, the world has another good person. Therefore, when we mention Edward Snowden, people tag him with the man who has betrayed his own country. However, when thinking about him deeply, people will find what he has done is indeed to protect the citizens and also protect his country from becoming corruptive and hopeless, though it looks like he is a traitor.
Although these men are not fighting for a great reason, when “honor’s at the stake” (4.4.59), they fight to their “imminent death” (4.4.63). This shows how Hamlet should act since his justification for seeking revenge is far greater than this army’s reasons for going to battle. Since these soldiers “go to their graves like beds” (4.4.65), Hamlet acknowledges that he must take action and have his “thoughts be bloody or be nothing worth” (4.4.69). In this soliloquy, Hamlet realizes that it is necessary to take action now. For too long, he has worried about the aftermath of murdering his uncle, but now he has been motivated by Fortinbras’ army willing to die for a worthless cause.
