  • Honesty And Honesty In Othello

    believes that because he’s honest and honorable, that everyone else is the same way. Even Iago knows this about Othello, and uses it against him: “The Moor is of a free and open nature/That thinks men honest that but seem to be so, / And will as tenderly be led by th’nose” (1.3.389-391). This trust and faith in his peers is broken by the end of the play, not only because of the accusations against Desdemona, but also Iago’s constant questioning of Othello’s trust in her. Iago breaks Othello’s spirit down piece by piece until there’s nothing left. Honesty is a valuable trait but believing that everyone else is going to be honest does not work. Iago also realizes that Othello may recognized as a ‘great man,’ but he’s just that, a man. “But men are men; the best sometimes forget./Though…

  • The Importance Of Honesty

    Honesty is not the best in all situations, because it can be very hurtful. Honesty can easily ruin someone’s day by offending them or hurt their feelings.

  • Honesty In Othello

    2. a. Quote: “a man...of honesty and trust” (I.iii.223) b. Analysis: Shakespeare litters instances of dramatic irony throughout his play, especially whenever someone labels Iago as “honest.” From an outsider’s perspective, it is almost unrealistic how every character is able to fall prey so easily to Iago’s ploys and tricks. Perhaps it is Othello’s honesty and trusting heart that ironically blinds him from the deceitful manners of Iago. Othello is portrayed as one who follows the regulations…

  • Pathos In Honesty

    In all honesty I am not that big of a fan of using ethos or pathos for a few simple reasons. First, they can both be very easily questioned and argued. For ethos, if you’re only using your character to support your argument then if anyone has ever seen you do anything wrong and they have proof of it then they can/will destroy your argument and support. Also I can see multiple ways that your competitor could simply bring question to your character, even if they bring forth those questions through…

  • Honesty In Sports

    Malcolm Gladwell discusses how “the education of any athlete begins, in part, with an education in the racial taxonomy of his chosen sport.” Gladwell believes that kids are programmed from a young age to know what sports they play and what positions they should play. Some races including African Americans are sometimes thought to be more superior then others at sports. In all honesty no racial groups are superior at sports than other groups. Although there are many more African American athletes…

  • The Importance Of Honesty

    I’ll be honest. I hate chores. I absolutely hate getting up in the mornings to walk the dog, clean the kitchen after breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I especially hate washing the floors by hand. I’ll be even more honest; at times, I purposefully skirt my responsibilities citing schoolwork, work, or music homework as the reason to not be touched that day, when I’m actually lounging reading a nice book or simply watching YouTube videos. I know it’s bad, but, I guess that’s what being honest…

    Those who grow up in a religious era, or household, learn to always stay true to their morals. In the bible, there are plenty of verses to remind those people of integrity.
