Also in the play Tybalt was basically asking to be killed because he started with them for no reason. Before Romeo killed Tybalt Lord Capulet actually liked Romeo and Tybalt wanted him to not make him like him anymore and it worked. And now Juliet has to lie to her father about everything and how she wants to marry Paris but she really wants to marry Romeo. So Tybalt basically ruined everything that Juliet wanted.

He covers the local events that no one else wants while he watches his co-worker continue to get promoted.

Antigone, an outstanding play written by “Sophocles”, in this play a quote is mentioned by a blind prophet that goes by the name of Tiresias. He goes on to say in pages 111 to 112 “Think: All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil: The only Crime is pride.” Right from the beginning he wants the reader to think. That if a man has a lot or too much pride; it can be their only true crime. For example, recently a story has come out about a NBC news reporter. Who eligibly said his helicopter was shot down in the Iraq war.
As Drummond says, “It’s the loneliest feeling in the world—to find yourself standing up when everybody else is sitting down.” Both Cates and Drummond experience a struggle against mainstream society. The older and more experienced Drummond comforts Cates with his knowledge that individuals make progress for all of society when they courageously pursue the truth regardless of others’ opinions. At the end of the play, when the court announces the verdict, Drummond says to Cates, “You don’t suppose this kind of thing is ever finished, do you? Tomorrow it’ll be something else—and another fella will have to stand up. And you’ve helped give him the guts to do it!” As Drummond implies, individuals throughout history have challenged societal norms by forcing society to rethink its assumptions.
It is "monstrous" that the player "in a dream of passion" could put so much emotion into the piece that he even cried "all for nothing". Hamlet is amazed but also suffers from a feeling of pitiful inadequacy because he sees that this player, acting out a speech about a fictional woman who is no more than a character on paper, has put much more emotion and passion into his speech than Hamlet has into avenging his own father's death. Hamlet loved his father and still continues to mourn for him long after anyone else, and while he should be putting as much emotion as the player into killing his father's murderer he is not. He is putting less emotion into his cause than the player into a fictional situation. "Not for a king/ upon whose property and most dear life/ A damned defeat was made" does Hamlet act.
Nevertheless one murder didn't comfort him, he thinks he needs to secure his position. So he goes off and hires hit men to kill who he thinks is his enemy, the one who can take his power, Banqo. Soon enough he finds himself ordering the slaughter of a traitors family, which is when remorse never enters his thoughts.

As Shakespeare once wrote , “Fair is foul and foul is fair” (Act I, Sc.I, Line
The mad man killed the old man and then cut him up and put him under the floorboards of the house. In 'The Tell Tale Heart' the main character remains nameless, genderless, and ageless, he thinks that he has done the right thing by killing the old man and that he got rid of the 'evil eye'. The main character is very confident about what he has done and think that he had a very good reason for killing the old man which was, he didn't like the way his eyes looked and because he thought that the one eye was evil. We can see evidence of that in lines 10 - 14 where he says: 'I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this!
