Sohrab feels guilty for what he did to Assef, although it saved himself and Amir. Amir tells him, “There are bad people in this world, some people stay bad. Sometimes you have to stand up for them. What you did to that man is what I should have done to him all those years ago. You gave him what he deserved.
Right here is where Amir should have seen that Hassan cares about him and acted loyal like a real friend should have. Instead Amir Betrays Hassan again by not saying a word and letting Hassan take the blame for something he did not do. Amir continuously shows that he is Hassan’s betrayer by more actions that he
Baba knows that Amir is not violent and he wishes that he would just stand up for himself. Amir overhears this and is very troubled that Baba doesn’t approve of him. To Amir this is a realization that he is a coward and his father notices it. Later in the book, Amir sees Hassan being raped and he is contemplation jumping in and being courageous because he says, “I had one last chance to make a decision. One final opportunity to decide ... ... middle of paper ... ...doesn’t like anything.

All the perspectives on this matter seem to point to the fact that taking vengeance on your enemies is a bad thing. The Lord wants us to leave the vengeance to him, Dumas is also is against vengeance as seen from his contextual points, and lastly I am against taking vengeance as well. Revenge is a can be extremely destructive and it is dangerous to carry out.
Brutus, even when his mind has good intention it is also littered with ignorance. Brutus had good intentions but his ignorance made him make not the best decisions. He had made many ignorant decisions because he did not want to listen to Cassius. The first time Brutus showed this trait was when Cassius warned Brutus many times about the danger of Mark Antony. Brutus simply thinks the good of people, not ever wondering if he does one action, if the other person might retaliate.
Later in the play, Haemon does stand up to Creon. Another character who is scared of Creon is Tiresias, the prophet. “No man alive is free from error, but the wise and prudent man when he has fallen into evil courses does not persist, but tries to find amendment.” (1023-1026). Tiresias tells Creon that he is making a mistake by killing Antigone, but he does not directly tell Creon what he thinks. Haemon along with Teiresias are different from Antigone because they both try to stay on Creon's nice side because of their fear for him.
Amir and Assef made me so annoying and I asked myself, Why Amir did not help and stop Assef? Hassan was just a poor boy. If I were Amir, I would help him, fight with them, and protect him. Specially, after Hassan rape I felt down about Amir, he was acting unbelievable to Hassan. He was trying to nice, talk, and still keep their company with Amir.
It can’t eat away at them or make them feel bad or guilty. If telling them the lie is going to make them angry or sad and them knowing won’t help the problem, then why would you force this burden onto another that you obviously care enough about to take their feelings into consideration? In the book The Kite Runner, Hassan lied to Baba that he stole Amir’s watch and money. He had not actually stolen those objects and was trying to protect his best friend. Hassan knew that Amir had planted those things in a ploy to get rid of him, He didn’t want Amir to get in trouble and face Baba’s wrath and the shame of lying.
What he thinks is the right thing to do may seem like a positive aspect but can lead to complications when there are misunderstandings. Under entries ten through twelve, It illustrates the situation of Theseus assuming that his son is seducing his wife. And because that is his conclusion, Theseus think that the right thing to do is to banish his son. Banishing his son in theory would not really help the situation. The reason why Theseus banishes his son is because he feels he has been betrayed by him.
And 'tis thy counsel that hath brought this sickness on our State” (Sophocles 1512). Blinded by his arrogance and pride, Creon avoided the warnings. In the beginning, the priest warned Creon about the consequences he would face when the God’s found out about his plan. Teiresias knew his downfall was imminent, yet she still tried to warn him about his actions. It is understandable to not listen to a stranger or acquaintances advice, but when family becomes involved that is completely different.
