The master of deceit tempted him, but yet he was an example of obedience by refusing to deviate from what He knew was right. An example of this obedience is when he was facing agony in Gethsemane, when he was enduring much pain, even then he was obedient to the lord by saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” Luke 22:42 I would like to close with a scripture that President Hinckley used in a talk in 1995. The scripture is Isaiah 1:19-20 and it
Macbeth lies, saying he never thinks of them, but tells Banquo that he would like to discuss them further. Macbeth then seeks to draw Banquo closer to him, inviting him to join Macbeth's cause when the time comes for him to become king. Banquo makes his position clear: So I lose none In seeking to augment it, but still keep My bosom franchised and allegiance clear, I shall be counseled. With these words, Banquo sets limits on his loyalty to Macbeth. He will support Macbeth so long as he can do so with a clear conscience and an unguilty heart.
By Cap keeping his word like this he is proving that he stays true to his core values even in the face of hardship. After Sam’s death almost every stanza has a piece of it where Cap is talking about how he regrets his decision and wishes that he didn’t have to keep it. When Cap goes to say, “The trail was bad, and I felt half mad, but I swore I would not give in” he is saying that although he does regret his promise he will do anything to keep it. When Cap shows time after time that he is willing to keep his word no matter what it just goes to show what a real friend will do to keep a dying mans wish. The narrator stays calm and collected enough to keep the wish of his dead friends final wish of being cremated.
4. It tells us that Macbeth has a conscience. He does not want to spoil somebody else’s destiny for his own future. It is important because it emphasises on the conflict he is going to suffer from and that if he murders the king, he would not be happy about it. Scene 4 1.
That all won’t matter when you break someone’s pride, there is no joy of breaking others by all means. Instead, the author advises us to follow this prince and try to encourage people to do better. 2. Give honest and sincere appreciation. This principle gives an alluring vision of appreciation as a strong tool to win people’s trust and fellowship.
(602) He moves on to the subject of ruling shortly thereafter, in which he thinks a ruler’s duty is “not to prescribe anything to human beings in religious matters but to leave them complete freedom”(603) and so, the ruler “is himself enlightened”(603). Alas, he goes on to talk about people’s “freedom of spirit”(604) and ways in which they
Although Macbeth was terrified and against the idea of killing the king, one night he went into Duncan’s room and stabbed him to death. When the kingdom came to know about the death of the king, everyone was dazed. Furthermore, Macbeth began to regret the sin he had committed. “I am afraid to think of what I have done; Look on’t again I dare not.” (II.ii.66-67). After Duncan’s burial, it was discovered that Macbeth had been pronounced king.
Plato’s book Laws indicates that people who commit suicide would be buried in unmarks grave. However, four exceptions already existed “(1) when one's mind is morally corrupted and one's character can therefore not be salvaged (Laws IX 854a3–5), (2) when the self-killing is done by judicial order, as in the case of Socrates, (3) when the self-killing is compelled by extreme and unavoidable personal misfortune, and (4) when the self-killing results from shame at having participated in grossly unjust actions. (Laws IX 873c-d)”. Suicide is so something unnatural and against the state. This idea of suicide characterized as a crime against the state (treason) is also used by Hobbes in his book Leviathan (1651).
Desperation in The Nibelungenlied Many people act in desperation once they have realized they have made a mistake. It is human nature to second guess yourself and to wonder if you have made this right decision. This case is true in The Nibelungenlied with Hagen’s decision to assassinate Siegfried. His actions immediately following the murder and when he is on his way to meet Kriemhild show that he acted in desperation after Siegfried’s murder. Through Hagen’s actions of sinking Kriemhild’s treasure in the Rhine River and attempting to kill the monk to void the Nixes prophecy are both examples of Hagen’s desperation after killing Siegfried.
