Dishonesty

 Academic honesty is being able to say that your work is truly yours. This means that you did not copy someone else’s work, or claim other’s works as your own. Academic dishonesty is a very serious problem and should be reported immediately. If someone is aware of a good friend’s academic dishonesty, that person should report his/her friend despite their friendship because cheating does not only demonstrate dishonest work, but also reveals a flaw in character. However, grades aren’t everything. More importantly, schools and employers look at your character. It’s about the little things that one does. If someone is caught cheating, it demonstrates faults in character like dishonesty and untruthfulness. These are characteristics that no school or company looks for in an applicant and should be noted in academic records. When schools and employers look for candidates, they always look at previous academic work. They’ll look at grades, classes, and overall academic success. Cheating will o

Perfidious

 Wickham, who appears to be polite and quite the gentleman is revealed to be a treacherous and perfidious person on account of his deceitful actions. On the other hand, we realize that Mr. Darcy is the true gentleman, a man of honour, fidelity and sincerity. By contrasting the characters of Darcy and Wickham, time and again, Austen has shrewdly imparted knowledge as to the attributes of an honest man and a true gentleman. The arrogance of the Duke and the Duchess in the Second Part merely highlights the arrogance of class distinctions and sheer callousness of people from the upper class. Sancho and Teresa Panza’s wisdom which is highlighted at the end of the novel shows that old-fashioned goodness and wisdom from the common people still emerges victorious even in a world of full of deceit and cruelty. Don Quixote and Sancho’s truth and sincerity prevail over the Duke and Duchess’ fraud, deceit and malice. Life is too complicated and full of deceit. The romance of war had been deceit, i

Hypocrisy

 Both are searching for freedom that is well defined in their own parameters; but are kept under constant hypocrisy in the pursuit to achieve their freedom. However, hypocrisy by a “civilized” society is as dominant in today’s society as it was in the time that Huck and Jim encountered it. Even though today’s, hypocrisies take a new shape and form and are interwoven with daily activities. When Hester became a symbol of sin among the people and wore the scarlet letter as punishment, Dimmesdale bears a sinner’s masked mark in his heart. As a result of his concealed sin, Dimmesdale suffers from guilt and hypocrisy. Over the course of the three scaffold scenes, Dimmesdale changes from cowardly guilt and hypocrisy, to desperate guilt and hypocrisy, and finally to repentant hope. Through these instances and many others, Fielding purposefully and humorously exemplifies the vices of vanity and hypocrisy. His ridiculous, flawed characters, their actions and lifestyles, and even the stories they

Deception

 The interpersonal deception theory attempts to explain the manner in which two people who are engaged in face-to-face communication deal with deception. It is possible to detect deception from verbal and nonverbal cues. There are three dominant deception theories – falsification, concealment, and equivocation. Throughout “Othello”, the theme of deception plays an important role. The arch-deceiver in this play is Iago. Iago’s repeated deception moves the play forward to the climax and ultimately to the tragic ending. Although deception is always meant to deceive, the degree of deception varies upon the context of the situation. Viola is a main example of a character that is deceptive by their appearance in the Twelfth Night. Deception is being deceived or mislead by false appearances or statements. There are different kinds of deception in the Twelfth Night, by appearance or by Shakespeare’s word choice. Deception by appearance is an easily seen trait throughout different characters in

treacherous

 He describes the King firstly as a “bloody, bawdy villain”, and then as “Remorseless, treacherous, lecherous, kindless”. These words are almost onomatopoeic in the way we can imagine the actor playing Hamlet spits them out with disgust. The rhyme of treacherous with lecherous gives an additional sense of repulsion. Ross later reports of betrayal of the Thane of Cawdor, and makes some comparisons with The King of Norway and Macbeth. ‘Confronted him with self-comparisons’, here implies that Macbeth and him were matched in strength and courage. However, as the King of Norway is considered to be treacherous and cunning, the words ‘self-comparisons’ further hint of Macbeth’s future treacherous personality. King Lear is a metaphorical tale of an ailing man’s journey through hell in order to forgive his sins. Lear’s untimely, sinful surrender of his throne results in a chain reaction of events that send him through a treacherous journey. It is a tale that graphically describes the consequenc

Eternal Life

 We are created out of something else. But we cannot trace back the source of our existence because our answers will produce another question. It would lead to “ad infinitum” there would be series or eternal asking of questions. Hence, Locke posited from eternity there has been something. It is because a temporal being cannot produce another temporal being therefore the one produced us is better than us, “a knowing being from eternity” whereas being comes from eternity. Our culture had been almost lost once so I believe in keeping it alive forevermore. Some may argue that to be “Hawaiian” you must be of Hawaiian birth, speak ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i[1], or be a Hawaiian practitioner just as the kūpuna[2] of ancient Hawai’i. If a person is willing to genuinely respect, practice, and perpetuate a culture, it should be enough for them to be considered a part of said culture.  https://slot43101.blogspot.com/ Shakespeare explains that due to his verses, he will live for eternity within the lines of h
