Lies in George Bernard Shaw’s play, "Mrs. Warren’s Profession" - You can tell a lot about a person by the way they dress, by the cars they drive, and by the people they associate themselves with. You can also learn a lot about a person by what they say, because their honesty, or lack-there-of, shows the type of person they are. When a person is forthright, it is easy to believe and trust the person; however, when the person has tendencies to be misleading or manipulative, the trust is not as evident. To lie, according to www.answers.com, means to present false or invalid information with the intent of deceiving or misleading another person....   [tags: honesty, lies, George Bernard Shaw, Mrs. Warren’s ] 1065 words

True Lies - The partner’s truth and lie are fickle creatures. They can change, morph, or grow into something entirely unlike what they were when they started. When multiple lies are told, they can snowball, creating catastrophic effects. The lines often blur between the two, until it is impossible to tell which started as the truth, and which the lie. What begins as a small, white lie can, like a black hole, consume all that comes near it.

Different Types of Lies - “To lie is to state something that one knows to be false or that one does not honestly believe to be true with the intention that a person will take it for the truth”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie) In other words, lying is a purposeful misleading statement. This statement can be made verbally, through body language, or even implied through silence.

Lies and More Lies in Conrad's Heart of Darkness - Lies in Heart of Darkness After declaring his passionate hate of lying it is odd to see the complete reversal of character in Marlow by the end of the book.  Then perhaps it is not a change but merely an unexpected extension of his character that gives a different dimension to his personality.               His statement "You know I hate, detest, and can't bear a lie...it appalls me.  It makes me miserable and sick, like biting something rotten would do" (Longman 2210) gives what one may rightly consider a very straightforward clean cut description of the man's moral view and character traits.  Yet by the end of the book one may feel he has not only betrayed their trust but himself and all the values he seemed to embody during the course of the story.              Marlow's interview with Kurtz's Intended was less than the honesty one might have expected given his vehement stand on the issue of lying.  When he went to speak to her I fully expected him to be completely honest and tell her the truth.  My logic was that if she knew what Kurtz was like in reality her suffering would be eased and she would be able to gain an honest semi-objective view of the man she loved.  That shows my modern thinking!  It soon became clear that she was not going to accept any version of the truth and I found myself hoping that Marlow would lie to her to spare he the torture of knowing the truth.  Her constant interrupting of Marlow's dialogue in order to fill in wonderful, glowing details about the man was a complete revelation as to what she could hear and survive.  Marlow says, "It was impossible not to" "Love him" she finished eagerly..."How true....   [tags: Heart of Darkness Marlow ] 602 words

Pure love is directly related to divinity.  Without love, happiness and prosperity become unreachable goals.  An individual that possesses all the desired superficial objects in the world stands alone without the presence of love. For centuries love has been marveled by all that dare encounter it.  Countless books and poems have been transcribed to explain the phenomenon of love, but love surpasses all intellectual explanations and discussions.   Love is not a definition, but rather a thought, an idea.  This idea, the idea of love, burns inside us all.  Instinctually, every soul on Earth is addicted to love.  An addiction, that unless satisfied will contribute to the downfall of an individual in a society.  If one does not, or is not loved, one can not prosper among a society where love is an essential ingredient to joy and happiness....   [tags: Movie Film comparison compare contrast] 2599 words

Essay on Lies and Self-realization in A Doll's House - Lies and Self-realization in A Doll's House   In Ibsen's play,  A Doll's House,  the characters willingly exist in a situation of untruth or inadequate truth that conceals conflict.  Nora's independent nature is in contradiction to the tyrannical authority of Torvald.  This conflict is concealed by the way they both hide their true selves from society, each other, and ultimately themselves.  Just like Nora and Torvald, every character in this play is trapped in a situation of untruth. "A Doll's House", can be misinterpreted as simply an attack on the religious values of Ibsen's society.  While this is certainly an important aspect of the play, it is not, however, Ibsen's main point.  "A Doll's House" established a method Ibsen would use to convey his views about individuality and the pursuit of social freedom.  The characters of "A Doll's House" display Henrik Ibsen's belief that although people have a natural longing for freedom, they often do not act upon this desire until a person or event forces them to do so....   [tags: Dolls House essays]

According to About.com an urban myth is a “term used to describe an apocryphal – and actually false – story that plays on a general assumption or feeling shared by many, usually of fear or distrust, and that usually claims to expose a public danger (1).

Using Lies to Define Morality of Characters in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain once said, "Lie--an abomination before the Lord and an ever present help in time of trouble." Twain's description of deceit gives it a type of double meaning. This idea of lying being used for good as well as evil is not unheard of. Many time people find it necessary to lie to maintain a greater good or save a life. However, all too often, people lie for self-serving, immoral purposes. In this quote, Twain elegantly shows the delicate balance between good and evil in the performance of the same act....   [tags: essays research papers] 1371 words

A Comparison of Freedom in Secrets and Lies, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Beloved - Freedom in Secrets and Lies, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Beloved          The word freedom has a different meaning for everyone based on their individual circumstances. Webster's Dictionary also provides many definitions for freedom, the most  relevent to this paper being: a) the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action; b) liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another. I believe that Webster's Dictionary explains freedom the best when it states that "freedom has a broad range of application from total absence of restraint to merely a sense of not being unduly hampered or frustrated." Since it is really a philosophical question whether a total absence of restraint is really possible, or even desirable, I think mine and most people's general use of the word tends to be more on the side of not being unduly hampered or frustrated....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

If you ask different people, you get different answers. Some say its being able to do whatever you want. Other people say it's when you don't have to do anything. Many things in life have no absolute answer. When people talk about freedom, they talk about it physically, for example not having to be in chains, or confined in a cell.

Comparing Love in the Film, Secrets and Lies and Toni Morrison's Beloved - Possessive Love in Secrets and Lies and Beloved      The word “freedom” is subject to various degrees of interpretation in the sense that it can be used in more than one context.  One definition of freedom is the idea of having your own sense of self without the control of others.  On the other hand, a lack of freedom is the idea of feeling trapped and smothered in a situation one has no control over.  Freedom can relate to school, relationships, or even within oneself.  A lack of freedom can have nothing to do with other people but with the ball and chain that can be placed on by oneself.  Of course the outside world will be involved, but the pain of feeling trapped comes from the frustration that fills one’s soul.  A lack of freedom can result from a twisted circle of other events and other people.  In the novel Beloved and the film Secrets and Lies, the enslavement that Roxanne and Denver feel result from their mothers’ possessive love.  Sethe and Cynthia both have horrific pasts, leaving them in captivity and causing them to have unhealthy relationships with their daughters.  Sethe and Cynthia love the only way the know how, possessively and dependently, causing Denver and Roxanne’s mental enslavement....   [tags: Movie Film comparison compare contrast]
