Stanley pretended not to know what [John] was talking about. And then he grumbled that The Books of Bokonon were filth. And then he insisted that anyone who read them should die on the hook” (190). Having established that the book is clearly made up of lies the reader has to determine if what is being read is truth or foma. “And then he brought me a copy from Frank’s bedside table” (190).
Am I the cause of these tears. If my dad has sent you back don’t blame me. You may have lost his respect but so have I. Oth- If God would of made me sick, poor, a slave, and destroyed all my dream, I would of have accepted it but instead he makes me a fool in front of everyone. My wife who’s suppose to be the mother of my children has rejected me? Instead she has exposed herself!
John Proctor who was only a victim of vengeance had to be persecuted. I did what I should to save Mr Proctor’s life as it felt that I was responsible for his ordeal. But I am nothing but a disgrace. What kind of man is to plead someone to blemish his own name? I should be damned for persuading men to lie.
He had a chance to tell the town, and the court, that Abigail’s claims were false. Nevertheless, Proctor did not open his mouth. He feared that revealing the truth would put him down on the social ladder; innocent people had to pay, for his flaw, with their life. Proctor was a proud man who values his good name. He would do anything to keep his name.
I genuinely have not got the time for people who sit around and pretend they know me and moan about the things I do FUCK OFF it's my profile I'll write whatever I want on it, if it annoys you that much ya know where the remove button is and you can even speak about me as much as you like, ya know what they say haters make me famous;) Such an urge to stab certain people in the face After you get hurt you build these "walls" around you, in fear of getting hurt once again. You don't let anyone in, you don't give anyone your all because you constantly remind yourself of the past. You even get scared when someone gets too close. Which is terrible because you not only hurt yourself but others. Just remember that one day you need to have the strength to put these walls down for someone, or you will never be truly happy.
I never knew what pretense Salem was, I never knew the lying lessons I was taught by all these Christian women and their covenanted men! And now you bid me tear the light out of my eyes?” (Act 1) This moving scene effectively illustrates the theme of purification.

Justice can be seen when Oedipus and Antigone were in an area they shouldn't have been and no one did wrong to them and left them to die. These examples are just a couple of the several cases in which this play displays an action showing either justice or injustice that has a large effect on the characters in the plot. Antigone is the foremost character in recognizing justice and injustice and it proves to be a huge attribute for her and Oedipus as the story proceeds. She witnesses how poorly her blinded father is being treated and begins to search for any trace of mercy. She believes that even though his past was scarred and cursed, he still deserves fair justice and is not afraid to openly proclaim her disapproval.
In Act 1 and 2, Hamlet’s relationship with language show that he is unable to see the truth in language and finds that words are often untrustworthy. Hamlet can be contrasted to Horatio who, in the play, is viewed as a teller of absolute truth and is very trustworthy. In Act 1 Scene 1, Horatio is chosen to speak to the ghost as seen in the repetition “Stay! Speak, speak, I charge thee speak!” which therefore from the beginning of the play is viewed to be reliable and truthful. As well as this, Horatio is often the storyteller as
He feels shamed for having broken his code of honor with Abigail, saying “Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time, but I will cut off my hand before I ever reach for you again.” This shows that he doesn’t want to go through what he did with Abigail ever again. At the end of Act IV, he rips up his confession because he doesn’t want his name being used to sway others. He says “Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies!
He says: “Do not counsel me any more. This punishment That I have laid upon myself is just. If I had eyes, I do not know how I could bear the sight Of my father, when I came to the house of Death, Or my mother for I have sinned against them both So vilely that I could not make my peace By strangling my own life. Or do you think my children, Born as they were born, would be sweet to my eyes? Ah never, never!
