What are they thinking? They are so dumb, why did they do that do they even have a head? There are many more but the people all have a motive to why they did what they did. Let’s take Rikki Tikki Tavi for instance, he had to have a reason to kill three snakes but why you ask. All three snakes were going to kill his new family and probably all of the other animals in the garden.
He knew because they had let the other messengers escape. They had broken into tumult instead of action. He discerned fright in that tumult. He heard voices asking: “Why did he do it?” (Achebe 143). When Okonkwo was faced with his enemies, he makes a rash decision and kills the messenger.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, churches prove that they want no part of helping one another solve racial issues. When Calpurnia brings Jim and Scout to her church, she didn’t expect anyone to say anything about it, given what their father was doing, but this proved to be untrue. Almost as soon as she steps in the door with them, one member, named Lulu tells Calpurnia,”You ain’t got no business bringin’ white chillun here-they got their church, we got our’n.”(Lee 158). This goes to show that not matter who you were, members of the opposite church were not supportive. Even with Scout and Jim’s father representing Tom Robinson, who was a member of that church, they were not welcome in the colored church.
Two minutes later, Tigerman and Lionboy were distracting the monster, and then all of the kids came, and they were eating the monster piece by piece, and in an hour or so, the monster was gone. Tigerman, Lionboy, the kids, and the whole city were celebrating after the cotton-candy monster was defeated, and London was finally free from the monster. It was 2:00 p.m., and the people of London were rebuilding what the monster had destroyed, and the kids were back at school with no monster. After that, Lionboy left and Tigerman went back to his hideout, hearing on the news radio: “London has been saved by our two heroes, Tigerman and
1) In Hamlet, pouring poison in a person’s ear had both a literal and symbolic significance. The literal meaning is that they are telling lies to people in order to deceive them. They are pouring poison or “poisonous” words into that person’s ear. The symbolic meaning of pouring poison in a person’s ear can be associated with the symbolic meaning of the snake in the story of Adam and Eve where the snake lures Eve in through lies. The characters in Hamlet were misled in the same way because they had poison poured into their ears.
Saul was in cave and was very vulnerable while David was also deeper inside the cave. David’s men encouraged him to kill Saul saying, “Here is the day the Lord said to you, ‘Behold I will give your enemy into your hand, and you shall do to him what seems good to you’” (1 Samuel 24:4). Although, David was tempted to kill Saul because Saul had been hunting him, instead he cut off a piece of Saul’s robe. David’s men were astounded by this action and David responded to them “The Lord forbid that I should do this thing to my lord, the Lord’s anointed” (1 Samuel 24:6). After Saul was no longer vulnerable David came to him and showed him the piece of Saul’s robe that he had cut off.
After seeing how God had not helped the Jews at concentration camps, Elie started to lose his faith in God. He lost faith in God’s justice. He couldn’t understand why God would let such horrible things happen to innocent people. Eventually, Elie had decided, “not to fast” (23). He did this for many reasons.
After he shot and killed the enemy sniper, he wanted to be sure he killed him so he went to see him. He got shot at by machine guns. When the firing stopped, he went to the body. He turned it over and it was his brother. The theme was made clear when the story said ¨The sniper turned over the dead body and looked into his brother´s face.¨(Page 9) His heart probably sank when he found out the man he shot and killed was his brother.
Sophocles use of foreshadowing shows the audience what terrible things will happen due to Oedipus killing his father and marrying his mother.

Hassan hadn’t done anything to earn Baba’s affections; he’d just been born with that stupid harelip” (Hosseini 46). When Amir says, “I wish I too had some kind of scar that would beget baba’s sympathy”, we can infer that because of Hassan’s harelip, Amir believes that's the only reason why Baba treats Hassan with such care. Because Baba and Amir's relationship isn’t as stable as Baba and Hassan's, Amir shows a bit of jealousy. After Amir says, “It wasn’t fair. Hassan hadn’t done anything to earn Baba's affection”, we can infer that Amir is frustrated that Baba cherishes Hassan and questions himself, what did Hassan ever do?
Mekala was shocked for a moment but again wanted to know why she had to kill them instead of warning them. Serpent took this decision because of the vengeance she had on the Almighty. She mentioned that her intention was to see the end of the Lord. At first, all the Vaaraamdian rulers felt baffled. Later Nithini laughed aloud and said “Who can dare to see
