Loyalty is the glue that holds marriages or friendships together. Without loyalty there would be no trust in one another, and all of these relationships would be broken. Loyalty is quite simple to fulfill, but at times can be even easier to fail. Specifically, in marriages, loyalty is not just remaining married to one’s spouse, but is also staying true to all the promises one made, and putting oneself before the other. Loyalty plays a key role in Odysseus’ and Penelope’s marriage in the epic poem “The Odyssey” by Homer, translated by Robert Fagles, but it is debatable if Odysseus is truly loyal to his selfless wife, Penelope.

Inner peace is not a collateral result of other qualities. It is obtained individually, throughout wholesome authenticity, even when life seems to indicate
Early on in the play Lady Macbeth was characterized as a ruthless person, but later on in the play the audience softens up on her because she reveals her weak side. Lady Macbeth was a ruthless person, and no one expected it because even today in society women are not associated with evil characteristics, she demonstrates this when she continuously insults her husband.

She uses this tactic of persuasion, by targeting Macbeths insecurities; this is very ruthless because Lady Macbeth shows becoming royalty over her husband’s dignity.
