Even when Beowulf passed away in his last battle, it was told that fate determined to be that way, it was his time to go.

Tecumseh and his brother Tuckabatchee joined the Shawnee raids and killed several white men which resulted in retaliation and the start of Creek War. The authors believed that the war would have started with or without the visit of Tecumseh.

God will bless you with life from the work you are giving to the country. Paine believes going to war with the British will be dangerous but, believes there will be peace on Earth. Paine states, “Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and to repulse it. Say not, that thousands are gone, turn out your tens of thousands.” (Paine lines 252-253) This shows how Paine believes with the help of the war there may be peace on Earth for the new generations.

Rafe's thoughts were “Still, Leo had a point. If this mission was going to be worth doing, I needed to do it right” (Pages 112-114, Patterson). Rafe is going to keep his “no-hurt rule” and follow Leo's guidelines and new rules by making sure he doesn't pull a stunt on Zeke and Kenny again and that he doesn't get detention or in trouble with his mother. For instance, he won’t interact with Zeke and Kenny because he nearly got caught and in big trouble with the principal. In addition, before the new rules, Rafe insisted “If I get detention, it's one week of time out.

In this movie Ceaser takes on a role of being all knowing like Jesus was.For example, Jesus compromised his comfort zone to come down and save us due to unconditional love. In the movie Ceaser compromises to let the humans work on the project to restore power to the city as long as they give up all guns and stay in the part of the forest they are told. A biblical reference is John 3:16 stating how God comprised his son for the love he has for us. Bergant once stated, “God has been creating order out of chaos and continues to do so even to today.” This relates to the movie because as we see Caesar take the role of Jesus he helps the apes out of conflicts they get mixed up in. Looking further into how Koba plays the role of a Devil, one sees that he lied to the apes.

Their refusal to change their religious ideals and beliefs stemmed from the fact that they were passed along to them from generation to generation, it is what they lived by, what helped them survive all these years, and change would only bring about destruction of all that is safe, familiar and unifying. “We worship in that way. It teaches us to be thankful for all the favors we receive; to love each other and to be united. We never quarrel about religion” (Red Jacket 231), the natives feared that introducing new principles would create rifts and endless quarrels between tribe members. Their beliefs also gave them their own special identity which separated them from other nations and they were immensely proud of
The reason this legend did a better job is because the exaggeration emphasized the lesson. According to the story, Pythias had to be killed because he appeared in the king’s dream. Pythias asked for a day to complete some tasks and bid his family goodbye. Damon was left hostage. Damon stated: “There is no need for me to feel afraid, O King, since I have perfect faith in the word of my true friend, and know that he will certainly return before the appointed time— unless, of course, he dies or is held captive by some evil force.” (Russell, 1231).
