For instance, in the process of killing Caesar, he could have easily backed out because he knew he might have been punished, but he knew in the long run, that it would help the plebeians most. Another example of his selflessness is in Act 2, Scene 1. Brutus frequently demonstrated many acts of affection toward others, such as Cassius. In Act 1, Scene 2, he is reluctant to join Cassius's conspiracy because he did not want to betray Caesar. He had to weigh his choices and in Act 3, Scene 2, Brutus kills Caesar only because he is afraid of what will happen to Rome if Caesar remains ruler.

Her character begins to change when she hears of her father’s treatment of Eva Smith - the working-class girl who commits suicide with detergent - in “An Inspector Calls.” Like all of the Birlings, Sheila was partly responsible for the death of Eva; Sheila was jealous of this pretty girl who worked innocently in a store and Sheila reported Eva for slight, meaning once again this young Miss Smith was fired, sending her into a spiral of depression. Sheila is a perceptive person. When Inspector Goole mentions the name Daisy Renton and the investigation into the death, Sheila notices Gerald’s reaction and she is the first to realise Eric’s part in the story. She is also the first to wonder whom Goole really is by suggesting he is some sort of impostor.Curiosity killed the cat and Sheila Birling is a curious person who needs to know about the part Gerald plays.

When the oracle said that her son would kill his father and sleep with his mother she quickly abandoned her son to avoid that horrible fate and thanked the oracle for that. However, when Oedipus heard that Polybus was dead and realized he didn’t kill his father Jocasta said the oracle was useless. Jocasta is the type of person that chooses to be blind and accept the lies but only when they help her. If the truths help her then she will accept the truths. Jocasta is also trying to blind Oedipus in this quote.

I think that the story “Just Lather, That’s All” is written in a very good and and interesting way. And that is because the author doesn’t tell the reader if the barber is going to kill Torres or not. So the reader has to wait, and read the full story to know what happens. And that the barber goes back and forth with his decision also helps the reader and makes him/her more interested in reading and finishing the story. I think it’s also interesting that Torres knew that the barber might kill him, but he still went to see if he would or not kill him.
This quote is a paradox because while reading this the reader can apprehend that the unintended meeting was not as bad as it should have been. The one thing that is keeping the true lovers apart is the family feud (Montague’s and the Capulet’s) that’s been going on for many years. But Romeo and Juliet don’t care and later on they go against their families and get married. Tybat (Juliet’s cousin) was killed and Juliet’s parents think that it was the reason she committed suicide. As soon as the nurse finds out that Tybalt is dead her reaction is very troubling and she doesn’t exactly know how to break it to Juliet so at the end result she says, “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.” (3.2.69-70).
