Zeus was able to save Dionysus and attached him to his thigh until he was ready to be born. When he was born from the body of the god he was given immortality since he was born directly from a god. Dionysus is the god of productiveness, parties, and wine. He is essential in the growth of plants. He has a duel personality.
In the Enuma Elish, Ea “created mankind from his [Quingu] blood, imposed the toil of the gods (on man) and released the gods from it.” Due to that, Year after year at the New Year Festival the Mesopotamian people recited and performed The Babylonian Creation. This signifies that Ea became an intricate vital part in the culture of the Mesopotamians. By creating humans, Ea demonstrated the close relationship formed with humans. The Atrahasis , very similar to the Enuma Elish, portrays the role of Enki, otherwise known as Ea, and its involvement in the creation of man and how the toil of gods were imposed over them. Although both myths note the importance of Ea and its involvement in human creation, it is more evident in the Atrahasis.

(Aurelius, n.d.) Book Two in The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius is about how to live your life. It is from the wisdom that his grandfather, Verus, taught him as he was growing up. “Every moment think steadily as a Roman and a man to do what thou hast in hand with perfect and simple dignity, and feeling of affection, and freedom, and justice; and to give thyself relief from all other thoughts. And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last, laying aside all carelessness and passionate aversion from the
Ghandi once said, “We must be the change we want to see” (Keilburger & Major, 305). Craig Keilburger followed that quote in its entirety. He believed that we are all responsible for today’s children, and that each person has the ability to make a difference. Keilburger once stated, “The change starts within each one of us and ends only when all children are free to be children” (Keilburger & Major, 305). With his tremendous actions and beliefs toward the treatment of others, he is able to show people that the Kingdom of God can truly be created on Earth.

The lion capital of Ashoka was one of Ashoka's finest works, which shown the contribution of Ashoka to convert and spread the Buddha's teaching throughout and beyond India (Kleiner, 2010).

Ashoka's conversion to Buddhism: [King Ashoka] now thinks that even a person who wrongs him must be forgiven...[and he] considers moral conquest [conquest by dharma] the most important conquest. He has achieved this moral conquest repeatedly both here and among the peoples living beyond the borders of his kingdom...Even in countries which [King Ashoka's] envoys have not reached, people have heard about dharma and about [the king's] ordinances and instructions in dharma...(Kleiner, 2010). Once again, it showed the great point of view of the king to pass his strong belief to everyone.
In my opinion, these lines reflect Macbeth’s hopelessness and indirectly reflect much thinking of Shakespeare. Macbeth speaks these lines after listening to his wife’s death. At this time, life to Macbeth is meaningless and the death is not very important and worthy being painful at all. When uttering this saying, Macbeth may think about his real life in which he made “a lot of noise”, he wrote a story, he fought many battles, he tried to become a king, he kept the throne; however, after death they all seem to become nothing. In Macbeth’s as well as Shakespeare’s thinking, all people in this life are just bad, stupid actors- shouting and running about and generally making a lot of noise and fuss but not much sense, and then they die anyway and become completely meaningless.
But when he went outside and saw all the things that were sick, poor and dying he was in shock. He had never seen anything like it before in his life. The Buddha may have felt a little sad that he did not know any of this and maybe a bit sorry for everything he saw. He could have also felt a little betrayed as his father had kept all of this away from him so that he knew nothing. However he may have also regretted his choice of leaving the palace in the first place, he had such a wonderful life but then he went outside and saw all the bad things in life.
