Honesty, fairness, or integrity in one's beliefs and actions to what is morally right. The lost of honor is due to an action of shame. To Antigone Honor may be about respecting the family in any conditions supporting them, showing them love, and being caring no matter what. While Eteocles showed no respect to his brother, Polyneices. It was Polyneices time to be on the throne but Eteocles refused to give up on the throne.
Antigone is loyal to the gods and not to Creon. Antigone states, “Creon is not strong enough to stand in my way.’’(P.32). What she means is that nobody can block her or stand in her way from doing what she has to do for her brother. Some may say that Polyneices was a traitor well he is, that 's the reason why Creon wants Polyneices not buried. She was trying to look out for her family but, her uncle did care about this.
“There is nothing wrong with having pride, but there is something wrong with letting pride destroy your relationship.” The short story “the Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst was based on the prideness between two brothers and its effects. Sense of Infallibility was one effect that took control over Brother, that lead to deceitfulness. The proudness between the two brothers was two sided, also know as biased. Brother had all right to believe in his own infallibility. Not only did he believe in his infallibility but Doodle believed in him too.
Kreon sees his order and punishment as the right and honorable thing to do. He believed his actions were morally right and the best option for maintaining control over Thebes. But Kreon also felt wronged by Antigone since she knowingly went against his orders, and like Antigone, Kreon had his reasons to be upset. He is the king and the male leader of the family and this meant the women of the house “owed” him respect. Kreon wanted justice against whomever buried Polyneices ' body, but when he finds out Antigone is guilty of committing the crime, he has a choice to make.
While Donald Trump's motive for using artifice, is simple, he wants the population to like him and believe he is a good president.

While everyone's intentions are different whilst using artifice, the results tend to be completely different. Even if the developments are good, artifice is still used by self-indulgent people, and that is why it is a terrible
The phrase "I didn't want to harm the man. I thought he was a very nice gentleman… right up to the moment I cut his throat”, is ironic as no one intends to kill someone who is a "nice gentleman." This is symbolic as well, due to the fact that Perry and Dick had no motive for the murder, it was more of their own frustration of the values and lifestyle of the Clutter family. They desired the American Dream, but could never achieve it thus taking out their bitterness on a family whose life seemed impeccable. The Golden Parrot is the novel's most important symbol and has a lot of meaning to Perry.
Charlemagne made his daughters learn other skills. I really respect Charlemagne for that because he did not show favoritism between the sexes. I mean of course there were things that the daughters did not do but the sons did but he did not treat them like objects or a housewife. Charlemagne was an all around great guy and emperor. He may not have been the best husband but he made up for it because he was an amazing emperor.
He state this fact in his speech: “I am aware, of course, that no ruler can expect complete loyalty from his subjects until he has been tested in office.” Creon is guaranteeing that he can be trusted and how devoted he was to gaining their trust. These words alone shows how much he wants to be king and rule them the correct way which is without betrayal. His tone is sincere to show that he actually means what he says. Creon proves his devotion in his speech by stating,”No one values friendship more highly than I; but we must remember that friends made at the risk of wrecking our ship are not real friends at all.” He is referring to Polyneices and how he betrayed his people. Creon is making sure that his state knows that his people comes before anything else and that they are his prime priority with security of their lives.
He did all this because he didn’t want his crew to back out so he could get home. People argue that if Odysseus was loyal to his wife then he must’ve been a loyal leader because he protected his men. Being loyal to his wife doesn’t prove his loyalty towards his crew. He was a selfish, an unreliable, and an impulsive leader. Odysseus wasn’t a reliable leader for his crew because he wasn’t honest.
It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do” (Lee 149). Atticus’ quote of courage foreshadows the results of the trial, he knew the end result of the trial, but he fought against it anyways, although he did not win. Another act that justifies Atticus’ courage is keeping Calpurnia despite Aunt Alexandra’s strong disagreement. Atticus said: “She’s a faithful member of this family and you’ll have to simply accept things the way they are” (Lee 182), this reveals Atticus’ courage because he kept Calpurnia even though there are controversies of having an African American house member as shown by Alexandra.
The Unions leaders had General George B. McClellan. He commanded the Army of the Potomac. He was very well loved by his men and always wanted the best for them but at the expense of the Union. He disliked abolitionists and the Republican Party and had very little respect for Abraham Lincoln himself but his biggest problem was that he was a perfectionist. Because of this, McClellan was almost always ready to move but not quite.
Just like the beliefs of Muslims they try to avoid all acts of violence and keep the peace around them. The pharaoh had the same values for love, Akhenaten was known as a lover not a fighter. Some say the major reason for the decline of the empire was because of Akhenaten’s love and beliefs. He was aware of the war and the issues arising among the empire and instead of addressing it and fighting the war, he chose to hold the military and pray to his god. The heretic was aware of the people against him and of the decline
