In conclusion Creon became conscious of his pride too late and then had to pay the price. While Creon’s pride was arrogant and disastrous, Antigone too was very prideful. For example, “To risk everything for stubborn pride (Creon, Scene 5).” Creon has now understood how foolish it was of him to ignore the blind prophet’s warning and his own son’s warning as well. In addition, “I should have praise and honor for what I have done (Antigone, Scene 5).” In this
The use of ‘walk under’ metaphorically represents that they are lower class to Caesar and that he is in control of everything. This gives Brutus and the readers the impression that Caesar is above everyone in the mortal world and that he is god-like and powerful. Again, this is mocking Brutus that he is worthless compared to the mighty Caesar. The main mockery of this quote is ‘dishonourable’, because it contrasts with Brutus’s true personality of honourability. Thus, telling him that he is low in status and dishonourable is quite striking to Brutus due to being a righteous soldier and Shakespeare is possibly using this as a way to get him to listen to what Cassius has to say in order to break these weak titles.
Webster’s dictionary defines the term hero as “a mythical or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability; a person admired for his/her achievements and noble qualities; one who shows great courage.” The same dictionary also defines the term rebel as “opposing or taking arms against a government or ruler.” After taking both of those definitions into consideration, it is not hard to give the rebel-hero title to Bartleby. For example, it takes more than a little bit of courage to stand up to the boss of the company and tell him that you prefer not to do the daily work tasks. His greatest strength and/or ability are being able to never
Two perceptions Written in pages, Shows a man as servant, But another shows greatness. Yet both show ability But under controversy, One by haste And quick decisions. One by faith And God sent missions. Both are seen as heroic In character and manner, But written by a poet This character is grander In more ways than one Is more critical And could ridicule The chosen Amrams’ Son. His struggle for life Is much more inspiring Than that of a servant, Once lost but prudent, Who turned to God, And became his student.
Gilgamesh was proud and dictated his subjects because of his supremacy while Sunjata remained humble despite his abilities and achievements. Gilgamesh’s godly powers made him unstable and as a consequence he suffered from immoderation. Sunjata’s humility is witnessed during the burial of Sogolon. The king was against Sunjata’s idea of honoring his burial. Despite Sunjata’s position as a hero before the Mande people, he humbled himself and used other ways to convince the king and he succeeded in the end.
He likes to believe he is right and enjoys the feeling of being superior in his theories and thoughts against those of other people. We see it a lot with his lies and deceits. He doesn’t ever give up on his lies even when people are skeptical because he wants to believe he is right and they are wrong. For example when he was at the Grangerfold household, he was almost caught forgetting his own name, but with his sharp wit he turns it around and asks for it to be spelled for him. He didn’t want to be noticed for lying and told he was wrong.
To others, pride can have a completely different definition. Being prideful can be as simple as being a solid individual, meaning this person is solid in their beliefs and little will change that. Once again, this is just a taste of the complexity when it comes to pride. I take pride in my work. Being prideful in the things that I do helps maintain the importance of why I am doing it in the first place.

War Of The Buttons You are not born with pride, show how on earth does someone have pride? Pride is something that you spend a long time trying to gain but it can easily be ripped away. Pride can be shown is several ways, whether is in yourself or in something you own. Pride symbolizes how proud someone can be over something or someone, as they say with respect it's like a whole “”what comes around goes around.” For example, since the word pride and the word proud are so similar, if somebody took someones pride away by doing something harsh to them, that persons pride would also go down considering they wouldn't be proud of what they have done. The theme of the movie “War Of The Buttons” directed by John Roberts, is pride and the message in the movie is pride is easy to gain but easy to lose.
Leaders who use these powers must understand they come with strengths as well as weaknesses, for example in my opinion those leaders who use coercive power to influence by fear don’t really earn their subordinates and peers respect and true loyalty and sooner or later will fail. Leaders who are subject matter expert frequently inspire the respect, trust and loyalty of subordinates, peers and superior alike. Rewarding power could be both bad and good as it rewards deserving people and sometimes will reward the not so deserving ones creating conflict in the organization. Charisma power might lead those who like the leader, but the leader may not be knowledgeable or skill enough to make the right decisions and finally referent power could empower those with the resources and personal traits but once the resources run out, the leader may not be
