The reader is given an explanation or prediction of how a character will act. Odysseus has a big reputation and is known for his loyalty and bravery. Odysseus also is the King of Ithaca and immediately is given respect with that name. After leaving for Troy and managing to leave the island, he takes shelter at a strangers house. Alcinous offers help and aid for Odysseus’ journey.
Odysseus who is disguised as a begger speaks with Penelope and says, “Your name has gone out under heaven like the sweet honor of some god-fearing king” (IV.95-97). Penelope is being compared to an honorable “God-fearing king”. This paints the picture that Penelope is a very well respected and admirable person. The audience should learn that loyalty is a very important aspect of life. This evidence shows that since Penelope stayed loyal to Odysseus even through doubt, she was rewarded with her life having purpose.
In this paper, I will explore the contributing factors as to why Othello places more trust in Iago than he does his wife. The interactions in Act 1 quickly establish Othello's implicit trust of Iago. He holds firm belief and reliability in Iago's statements and thoughts, and confides in him regularly. This is evident in how Othello continually refers to Iago with positive modifiers such as "honest Iago" (2.3.177; 2.3.6; 5.1.31). When the Duke tells Othello he must leave immediately for military duty in Cyprus, Othello tasks Iago with delivering important documents from the senate because "A man he is of honesty and trust" (1.3.284).
It is the ability, based on knowledge, to have no fear of death, while remaining fearful of doing injustice. A confusion of Socrates intensions on courage is set through what Woodruff has said about him. It leads one to wonder whether Socrates was courageous through his own life as well, or was he one to just motivate others and head for a downfall himself. The advice that he gave others was of great importance and it was nothing but the truth. Following what he adviced people to do, students in particular, you would never go wrong when you took his advice and success was guaranteed.
Xenia is the generosity and courtesy shown in the guest-host relationship. The whole concept of xenia began with the couple Baucis and Philemon, the only two people in their town to welcome the two disguised gods Zeus and Hermes into their home. The two were rewarded for their generosity, and the others punished. So in fear of the gods showing at their door, Greeks would welcome anyone with open arms and give them gifts; Homeowners would also receive gifts in return from the travelers. (Manolis) One of the first encounters of hospitality was when Odysseus receives advice from Circe.
Xenia is used in the Odyssey to show the importance of home. Xenia is the greek term for “hospitality towards visitors”. This Greek term is shown when Telemachus and Peisistratus both began on their journey on a yoke. “And they drove to Menelaus’ palace,/Which they found filled with guests” (Lombardo 44). Menelaus has many guests in his palace because of Xenia which is valued in their society.
According to Treviño & Brown, 2005 “Ethical leaders are thought to be moral persons because they are honest and trustworthy, take good care of their people, and do the right things in both their personal and professional lives. They make decisions based on values and ethical decision rules, and they are fair and concerned about stakeholders’ interests and long-term outcomes”. Ebbers did not display nor demonstrated any of the above characteristics of ethical leaders, he rather displayed unethical characteristics which was not obvious but was later exposed and the outcomes was in different forms of scandals. Yes, Ebbers could have used characteristics of ethical leaders to accomplish a successful results and outcomes
All human beings believe in the existence of Supreme Being. We 'll have an obligation, the commands of Gods. Implementing every act commanded by the Gods is morally right; is the statement true? The theory asserts that obeying Supreme Being is moral, in my own view, I agree with the statement. My opinion is supported by the fact that the teachings and code of conduct to obeying Supreme Being leads to doing what is ethically right, for example, not stealing from others, not committing murder, helping others.
People with confidence usually do not have a sense of fear at what they know, able to stand on what they believe, and have the bravery to take any risks. Guarantee defeat in a person is doubt on their confidence. Perhaps this is a reasonable result from failure that occurred in the past, do not let this become a permanent feeling in yourself, because everything that happens in the world is based on faith. The great news is that self-confidence really can be learned and built on. This is several steps how to boost your positive self-image.
Castiglione mentions that the courtier must do the following: avoid melancholy, always agree with the prince; and project good virtues upon the prince. Although these three actions are important to maintain for the purpose of setting an example, some may be unreasonable. As part of his persona, a courtier must not show signs of bad humor or melancholy. He must avoid foolish arrogance, lying, and boasting (125). I agree with this demand because the courtier has to be an image that motivates others in a way that they will not feel the need to express the same negative emotions.
