Odysseus inspires the idea of Odysseus Compass Repair because of the many times he was put off the track to Ithaca. His journey would have been much shorter and less lethal if he had known the exact direction that he had to travel. To some, this service may seem useless, although it is quite the opposite. Having a working compass can be the difference between life and death.
Odysseus had lots of pride in himself and his crew. Although Odysseus got him and his crew out of the cyclops's cave, he could not hold his pride in as he told the cyclops his name. " Cyclops- if any man on the face of the Earth should ask you who blinded, shamed you so- say Odysseus, raider of cities, he gouged out your eye, Laertes' son who makes his home in Ithaca!" (9.558-562).
“Columbus was amazed by all the gold and other metals (Columbus). ” If he didn’t discover those metals, we wouldn’t have the building material we have today. It was a phenomenon when he discovered all of those different metals. Without those metals we wouldn’t have some of the important materials we use today. “Christopher Columbus went back to America three more times after discovering it the first time (History in the Headlines 1996-2014).”
Even though Heyerdahl did not conquer countries, his own perseverance made him prove his theory to scientists and people who disagreed with his theory. If Alexander did not conquer most of the land he probably could have lived longer. If Columbus was not determined to find a new route to the Indies then who knows what could have happened to the Western part of the globe? If Heyerdahl stopped caring about his theory when people told him it was impossible and changed his mind, he could have learned other things during his time. All these men had a lot of determination to accomplish their goals and they did, without perseverance they could not have done what they
Without these peculiar, but precious traits, Odysseus would never had made it home. Odysseus’s quality of craftiness and quick thinking contributes to his intelligence. When he fought the cyclopes in “Book 9,” he had to think quick on his feet to help save him and the
“Though not even there would he be free of trials,”(21: 78) for his native land is not how he remembers it. As we encounter life’s challenges and complexities, we search for a hero to inspire us “in words and actions both”(2: 305), similar to the “Great Odysseus, who excels all men in
The punishment, he decides, is death. This punishment may seem harsh, but it was necessary to ensure the safety of Odysseus and Penelope. There probably were other options that could have been considered. However, if Odysseus had tried any other form of punishment, it most likely would have backfired. Maybe Odysseus could have banished them all from the palace.
Odysseus is on of the smartest characters I have ever read about, he skillfully thought his was through his plan and even put himself in danger before he started it just to gain information with the help of the gods of course (insert link about athena helping od). In The counts case he didn't get the help of the gods but he did consider himself a god a few times throughout the book. The way he planned for revenge on the people that have betrayed him was astonishing, first going to see who he could still trust as did odysseus, pretended to be someone else as did odysseus, and went back to a significant place Odysseus case where his child was born, The count is his home. In conclusion Odysseus and The Count of Monte Cristo as characters are very similar in the way they act, think, and execute actions.
King George III was a smart man but let his power hungry personality get in the way of his rational decision making. Killing England gives the readers insight on what was actually going on during the time of the American Revolution. Many people such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and many others paved this road for us today to live in this great nation. Their hard work and sacrifice is something honorable to look at. I feel that reading this book gave me a better appreciation for the founding fathers of our great
For the Athenian Military it was a Huge Success not only for winning the battle but it also show that there is potential in the hoplite phalanx. Since each city-state fought the same way there was no way of telling the strengths and weaknesses of the hoplite phalanx. The battle showed that the hoplite was very effective against lightly armed troops but was still very vulnerable to cavalry which would be a problem later on in the battle of platea but now shown if used in the correct circumstances the hoplite phalanx would be a very devastating weapon. The Athenians had a backup plan for both if they lost or won the battle.
Here are some of the ways the Red Team could have been much more successful in the battle and could have won: The first way that the Red Team could have been more successful from the beginning of the battle preparations was choosing more mature and well organized leaders and generals. Not implying that the failure was the generals or leaders fault, just saying that if the generals and leaders of the Red Team would have been more fluent with emails and updates everyone would have known what was going on and the plans wouldn’t have changed. Another thing that both teams could have considered was using the historical methods and knowledge known to set up a battle plan. They could have done research on war and battle methods in the past that failed and succeeded and used them to edit and use different elements to make their original plan
There are many opposing views pertaining to this argument, but if everyone was just able to come to an agreement; the world would be a better place. Accordingly, carrying a concealed firearm shows time and time again to reduce crime. If you were trying to rob someone and they had a concealed weapon you would be in for a huge surprise, so it kind of acts
Gunpowder is one of the greatest breakthroughs, but whether it has helped or hurt the human race more is debatable. Guns allowed us to make hunting easier when it was essential to hunt to survive. On the other hand, gunpowder has also allowed the creation of huge weapons of mass destruction and has caused billions of deaths worldwide. On the other hand, men waged war before the invention of guns. So it can be said that guns were not the cause of all those deaths, they just made it easier to create destruction and death on a massive scale.
They can protect us from the French and Natives on this new world. We have fought against these people once, and our troops were not strong enough to hold the French and Natives. The only way we could beat them was with english troops from our homeland. We would have been taken over and could even have died but with Great Britain’s help, we won the war. If we become enemies of our cherished nation, they could annihilate us.
The colonists won the War for Independence due to their superior tactics and soldiering. We won the war because the people of that time had the will to fight. We mainly won the war because of the French. Until the French decided to give aid, our soldiers most likely did not have enough weapons and ammunition. I imagine that there would have been more battles like Breed 's Hill without them.
