Something in her tells him she is not like the others. She is like him, she will be able to understand him. She will be a friend, an ally, she even goes as far as to tell him exactly what she thinks, “You are not one of our brother, Equality 7-2521, for we do not wish you to be” (Rand 43). She constantly breaks the rules to communicate with Equality.
The difference in language leads to miscommunication but the overlying consequence of it is lack of understanding and empathy for one another which leads to conflict. “Language takes on a metonymic relation to culture in Tan's portrayal of the gap between the mothers and daughters in The Joy Luck Club.” (Hamilton).

Cultural barriers prevent communication between people from all around the world, especially between the mothers and the daughters, and not necessarily figuratively.

Hermia rashly enters act one in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by defying Theseus’ advice to submit to her father’s wishes.

Inevitably, this leads into the analysis of how the human will is inherently connected to the problem of evil. Augustine uses his personal reflection as a means of exploring these subjects in his own life, thus finding the link between temptation and will, enabling him to discover what he must do to finally convert to the Catholic faith. Will is an extremely important part of Augustine’s discussion because he considers how freedom of choice, as a matter of course, leads to desire. Eventually, this leads to Augustine’s self deprecation in book eight as he ponders how Ponticianus’ friends were able to let go of their wills, and he is not able to, at the time. In this sequence, Augustine is more impressed with the friends’ abilities to release their wills and less with their abilities to give up

Lucy despises this notion almost as much as she loathes her mother and struggles with it daily. One concept she finds very repulsive is the importance of a woman’s image. She is disgusted by Dinah’s obsession with beauty and comments that “among the beliefs I held about the world was that being beautiful should not matter to a woman, because it is one of those things that would go away” (Kincaid, 57). Later on she mentions that “for the first time ever [she] entertained the idea that [she] might be beautiful”, but declares that she will “not make too big a thing of it” (Kincaid, 132). Lucy’s rejection of society’s emphasis on appearance frees her from the insecurities that are brought upon by a self-image based on looks.

She asks her sister, “Shall we not perish wretchedest of all, / If in defiance of the law we cross / A monarch 's will?” (_Antigone). Even when compared with the dishonorable deaths of her family members, Ismene believes that going against the will of a monarch is worse. Ismene is the polar opposite of Antigone, she is complacent and law abiding where Antigone defies the law in accordance with her own values. This has taught her that she and Antigone are “weak women, [...], Not framed by nature to contend with men” (_Antigone). As the case of Ismene shows, faith in law, and the following the societal expectations, creates someone who is largely complacent.
