Antigone’s pride came from her respect for her family and honoring the gods and their divine law, while Creon’s pride was an arrogant trait. Tiresias, the blind prophet claims Creon will lose his family for the crimes of leaving Polyneices unburied. Creon later realizes his mistaken pride. For example, “Fate has brought all of my pride to a thought of dust (Creon, Exodus).” This quote reveals that Tiresias’ prophecy or fate had portrayed Creon’s downfall, yet still filled with pride, refused to admit to his wrong doing. After Creon’s family’s deaths, Creon’s pride crumbles as he realizes he was wrong in his actions.
Prologue to the Pardoner's Tale: The Host thinks that the cause of Virginia's death in the previous tale was her beauty. To counter the sadness of the tale, the Host suggests that the Pardoner tell a lighter tale. The Pardoner delays, for he wants to finish his meal, but says that he shall tell a moral tale. He says that he will tell a tale with this moral: the love of money is the root of all evil. He claims that during his sermons he shows useless trifles that he passes off as saints' relics.

Set, your brother, is an evil man, who hates you and will do you harm (Osiris and Isis, 205)”. This proves that Isis knows Set is an evil man and she convinces Osiris not to go but he did not listen. Secondly, in the myth it states “Osiris, having no guile or bitterness in his own heart, believed others to be as himself, and with the words of confidence and cheer he tried to cast out the fear that troubled his wife; then, putting on his most splendid robes, he went in all trust and friendship to his brother’s banquet (Osiris and Isis, 205)”. This proves that even after Isis warns him about how Set will do him harm, he still goes. He fails to see the real truth about him.

By the time I was 19 I was hooked. I had my first baby at 20. I did get clean long enough to have a healthy baby. When I was 22 I found myself in prison on 3 felony counts of fraud and 2 felony counts of controlled substance. That was the longest year in my life.
The other main thing about “Hitcher” is that how the killer or attacker is so relaxed about the whole business. He seems to have no conscience n not only does he have no conscience but appears to think killing this man as funny or as an achievement. Saying after he has pushed him out the car “you can walk from there” On the other hand “On My Last Sonne” is about as different as it can be with the death of his son being terribly sad because he loved him but also grateful because he has gone to heaven. And is much more about his acceptance of his sons passing. Another main feature is the idea that God had given his son to him as a gift “seven yeeres tho'wert lent to me, and I thee pay” saying that he is grateful for the time they had together and now God is taking him
This affects him as he could not give priority to his responsibility as a soldier because he thinks that he loves her so much more than his war mates. Such ideas would keep Cross’s friends in danger as he would only care about his safety and not his war mates and the importance to win the war. Cross’ irresponsibility behavior has caused a very big effect as it killed his friend Ted Lavender. This could be seen in a verse in paragraph 10 in the short story. “He pictured Martha’s smooth young face, thinking he loved her more than anything, more than his men, and now Ted Lavender was dead because

He appeals to Brutus as a soft hearted guy only trying to pay respect for his dead friend and not trying to avenge the conspirators. Brutus falls for it, saying “he speaks by leave and permission….It shall advantage more than do us wrong” (3.1.245-249). Pretending to be on Brutus’s side help him to get what he wanted and fuel the audience. During Antony’s speech he used verbal irony to reach the crowd and cover up all the attacks he made against the conspirators. One thing that Antony said sarcastically that got the crow angry was “Let me not stir you up to sudden munity.
