According to John Feeley, “a close look at the development of Gabriel’s speech from the original headings indicates that despite the putative limitations of his audience, he does not intend to abandon the Browning quotation totally and that his considerable verbal skills render it unnecessary that he do so.” Moreover, this shows how isolated Gabriel has become from his family because of his education. Additionally, this makes Gabriel come off as alienated, especially when he is serves the food, he states, “Now, if anyone wants a little more of what vulgar people call stuffing let him or her speak” (Joyce 192). He intentionally isolates himself from the low class educated people by calling them “vulgar”. In a way he is equally at fault for his own isolation. Moreover, Rapp states that “Gabriel seems like a man who feels awkward because he is out of his element of university professors and is instead among a bunch of what he would probably call working-class brutes”
He suspends any belief in the knowledge he learned from childhood, everything that he believed without having inquired into their truth. Descartes designates doubt as a deliberate strategy to proceeding towards certainty. As Descartes attempts to separate himself from all prior knowledge, anything that can be even slightly doubted, Descartes labels it as false. This leads him to conclude that nothing is true. Since he could doubt everything, this rule allows him to reject anything that has even least amount of doubt.
Dimmesdale tells Hester “What can thy silence do for him, as it were—to add hypocrisy to sin?” (Hawthorne 63). Dimmesdale pushes Hester to reveal her lover (Himself) because he is too weak to do it himself. He “loves” Hester, but doesn’t have the guts to share her burden with her. He understands the turmoil of keeping his secret, but is too attached to his position as minister to admit it. Dimmesdale’s description of his “confessions” in chapter 11 also serve to further exemplify his hypocritical character.
Some reasons which include not being unable to commit the murder are Hamlet's fear of what would happen if he did kill Claudius, his concience bothering him for taking the life of his uncle, his disbelief in the ghost, and because of his facination with death. The most important reason that him back from committing the murder is if Hamlet were to carry out what the Ghost told him and carried out immediate revenge, how would Hamlet be able to convince the people that he justifiably executed an act of revenge.

Nick also says that Gatsby represents everything that makes him feel like an unaffected scorn. Nick proves throughout the story that he really isn’t as honest as he has thinks. Nick does not reveal he knows about Tom’s affair with Myrtle. He also pretends he didn't know Daisy was driving the car. Another example of his dishonesty is when Nick doesn't tell the police at the crime scene everything he knows, which would have saved Gatsby's life.
Their commanding, self-righteous tone indicates the sense of superiority and disregard of village life that society has already taught them. The inescapabilty of societal influences is reflected through Maureen and Bam’s inability to relinquish power to July. Although they recognize the extent of July’s help, they cannot let go of their upper-class values as Bam complains that July has overstepped his bounds: “he [July] ‘let me’ drive, going there?... July’s pretty sure of himself these days” (127 Gordim... ... middle of paper ... ...rden Party” by Mansfield, when Laura conforms to societal wishes despite her dislike of them.

Rose questions whether the loyalty that Ginny shows her father makes her obedient or if her reluctance to judge him proves her ignorance.
Woolf describes Mr. Ramsay as insensitive, malicious, and brutal toward his family, but he also desires happiness and wants the best for his family. Although Mr. Ramsay often scolds and mentally abuses Mrs. Ramsay, all he wants is love and affection from his wife. For example, when Mrs. Ramsay lies to James about the next day's weather, "There wasn't the slightest chance that we could go to the lighthouse tomorrow" (31). This comment shows that, if Mr. Ramsay doesn't want to do something, they are not going to do it. During the same conversation Mr. Ramsay say something that he would later realize he shouldn't of said.
In spite of everything Christopher may face, he chooses to continue on with finding the truth with nothing but the truth. Thus, when Haddon finally reveals the murderer being Christopher's father, it brings a new conflict to the table. Surprisingly, Christopher found it hard to believe that his father was the one to blame, and thought the entire thing was a joke. But sadly, once he realizes that his father is telling the truth, he automatically becomes frightened and decides he wants to get away from home: “That meant he could murder me, because I couldn’t trust him, even though he had said “Trust me,” because he had told a lie about a big thing” (Haddon 122). In the first place, Christopher takes honesty very seriously.
