Sarty’s father turns a good value, loyalty, and twists it using it in a disgusting way to benefit himself. Loyalty is what keeps relationships together, no matter what type it is. It keeps two people or an entire alliance of nations under an umbrella of honor and respect to work towards a common goal. Analyzing the story more and more, I noticed that

In The Autobiography, Franklin creates a list of virtues he endeavoured to demonstrate to manufacture an identity from scratch, boasting that the emulation of these virtues was the reason for his social success. With the display of virtues such as humility, Franklin changed the initial view others had of him as “proud”, “overbearing, and rather insolent” to receiving “a readier reception and less contradiction” from others towards his ideas (14). Here, Franklin achieves social support from others through the invention of a virtuous identity. Not only does he achieve social support through his constructed identity, Franklin also gains social approval, successfully assimilating into the American society. Conversely, the ex-coloured man reinvents his identity while following a set of societal expectations.
Responsibility comes along with having integrity, you would be put on a higher pedestal than those who do not show this quality. As well as respect, it comes into play as well when you show others that you have integrity. Gawain displays some acts of integrity in this story, but he also lacks integrity. The first test that Gawain encountered was chivalry, to show how he could withstand from temptation and remain a loyal and honorable Knight. Seduction, logic, flattery and his desire to survive came with this first test.
Instead of holding the traits of honesty, trustworthiness and leniency, Machiavelli told one make it only look as though did instead, and when the time came, they could be corrupt, sly and merciless. “It is good to appear clement [merciful] (sic), trustworthy, humane, religious, and honest, and also to be so, but always with the mind so disposed that, when the occasion arises not to be so, you can become the opposite...he must see to all who see and hear him a model of piety, loyalty, integrity, humanity, and religion.” (Machiavelli, ❡6-7). To give false sincerity to someone, it ruins the ideal image of that person when discovered they are not as they seem. As a leader, the population one had loyalty from could be reversed. The power that one had worked hard to acquire would fall from their grasp, and they would be portrayed as a liar and a disgrace to society after the discovery of their dishonesty to the people they
Such chivalrous values include but not limited to love, loyalty to the king, generosity, submission to authority and audacity (Lordsandladies.org, 1). The literary analysis in this paper is aimed at examining how the chivalrous values were induced in the narrative to develop Lanval’s character and fate as well.

His background as an abandoned king’s child is also revisited to help the reader get a better understanding.
Anthem has put multiple rules into action so that everyone is “equal” and there are “less” problems. What the society doesn’t know is that there are problems in Anthem. Equality sees these problems and will not implement them in the world that he envisions. Rules, regulations, and controls all have a purpose and a reason as to why they exist.

For Agathon, he believes that love is there because of beauty. Since the god of love was so beautiful and young, it shows that love was created to be beautiful. He believes that love is with people because they allow it to be with them. Also, we are able to understand our desires with what we want with love. When Agathon states that love is responsible for beauty, wisdom, goodness, and excellence, he does not really prove it.
Austen gives Elizabeth a bewitching personality and this causes Mr. Darcy to slowly fall in love with her. Readers can perceive this through events and interactions. One key piece in understanding the relationship that Darcy and Elizabeth are unwillingly cultivating, takes place in the library of Nethersfield. The conversation begins with Darcy stating that "it has always been in his effort to avoid weaknesses that invite ridicule" (Austen,145) in which Elizabeth then inquires if vanity and pride are amongst these weaknesses. Mr. Darcy excuses himself and states that "vanity is surely a weakness to be avoided, but that pride should be properly regulated for a proud man to have a superior mind (Austen,147).
The superiors(intellectual people) are a bigger threat to the society, the so called “perfect” citizens are not a threat because they can’t process their own thoughts very well.

He uses his words and his honesty to achieve his justice, he takes every advantage of this one true opportunity he has before the council to voice his opinion. One could also argue that Socrates seemed to want the truth, not so much for others but for his own well being. As oppose to King,
