Greed is the downfall to many. It is the ambitious qualities that corrupts and molds the selfish minds of people who will only live to see themselves fail in the end. In my time, I have come to believe that greed has no presence in my life. I have always been happy with what I have, this sense of fulfilment which some people lack, allows me to accept what I was given to overthrow the selfish desires of greed. I find that I have never been driven by my ambitions so far so as to simply have more than others and to do so by impractical and unjust means.

People could not change the past; therefore, they would do a good thing that brings to a better future, which makes them become better people than the ones in the past. The road to redemption is not from when the person makes up for his guilt, but it starts when he feel regretful, a difficult start, and ends with a relief of redemption. The author puts characters into different situations of sins and how they try to resolve problems, as examples for his ideas of road to redemption. For instance, Baba is always an honorable man in people's eyes. They admire him for his power, they are jealous with his wealth and they love ... ... middle of paper ... ...uilty feeling inside people.
Similarly Othello had the same scenario, yet his downfall was by his jealousy and disbelief of his wife’s devotion to him, “There’s the money for your pains. [He gives her money.] I pray you turn the key and keep our counsel” (4.2.108-110). Both were depicted as victims of their beginnings, yet were changed into something incomprehensible to themselves later. Both themes are similar, yet they are different in a way, Shakespeare depicted an indefinite amount of images to create his theme for both plays.
The Madoff’s legacy was one of greed which may have started with a need, therefore he justified the means to the end. When the need was satisfied with little or no effort or resistance it became easy to overlook the end, and when the pleasure came it became an addiction that could not be quenched.What he did was unethical. Bernie deceived his investors in order to accumulate personal wealth. He didn’t consider the people he was taking money from. The lust for approval and personal status was so overwhelming that it didn’t matter how many people he had to utilize in order to obtain and maintain the position he desired.
