He went against the most powerful force in his country, the government. He knew that he would not win, as he says, “I hope that I will be the last victim…[and to] inspire others to do the same”. He says that he didn’t not expect to win, but only to inspire others. In other words, he was courageous enough to have sacrificed himself in order to get his voice heard. This related to Atticus saying that courage is “when you know you’re licked”, and you still persist.
After the man and boy’s journey ends, they learn that people will do absolutely anything to survive and will create excuses so they will not be blamed for what they are about to do. The book seems to have an underlying theme based on the old saying “survival of the fittest.” ‘Fittest’ can imply many things, but it shows that only the most physically fit will have a better chance of surviving. The word itself has a harsh tone to it, making it seem that to survive you must be able to do whatever it takes to do, even kill someone to ensure your survival.

If he is truly confident in his deed, he would not stammer to find justifications. Yet, Brutus may not want power, he may really want justice. In his mind, murdering Caesar, was the only route to go. Brutus has a vision, and he intends it to work out in every way he plans. In a sense he achieves what he wants, and killing Caesar may have been crucial to his short-lived success.
Dr. Jarrod Spencer claims that it might prove to be very difficult for the players to follow all the rules while in the game. However, just like the players focus on playing and trying their best to win, they should also try their best to not attack fellow players. Fans should also not tolerate this behavior too.

I knew what that meant for the US. We all had to work for our victory and it wouldn 't become easily. He wanted a fight and so did we. A sudden shock it was to me, realizing true war and I was to be a part of it. What did I expect?
If Amir did end up helping Hassan, then he would have been thanked by everyone, but instead Amir is faced with the sight of that scene forever. Amir’s passion was to be loved and applauded by Baba, but his moral obligation was to help his best friend.

The main lesson to take out of Hosseini’s quote is to make the decision that will be the most beneficial to the future because just by one wrong decision, life can go a whole different
Macbeth has a problem believing that the plan will succeed. He has a strong feeling that the plan will fail and he will be the one to deal with the consequences. Lady Macbeth says, “But screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we’ll not fail” (I.vii.). She is telling Macbeth that if he is courageous then they will not fail.
