Through the luring quote, “Whosoever does wrong, wrongs himself” by Marcus Aurelius provokes that a person into doing a wrong doing will only impact themselves in some sort, according to the validation of this quote. Everyone one and who gives their own sense of definition for this validating quote. Anyone who is willing to commit a crime will be fooling themselves into bits of penalty and consequences following themselves into doing restitution attained by court. Therefore, this is a true statement in reality because people do and do not give their entire ability to crimes but do it of emotional and mentally reasons of their conscience and immediate pressure. Two major works that provoke the quote are “Almos A Man” by Richard Wright and “Charles” by Shirley Jackson. Among the two works, “Almos A Man” and “Charles” show the physical, mental, and emotional tense of doing a wrong doing of some sort in their playing role as a derisive character. Each provokes their own wrongdoing among others in the literary works.

In the literary work, “Almos A Man”, Dave wants to be eligible to own an extreme powerful little gun in his hand and be recognized as a man with pride and self-defense. Through Dave himself he is only in the center transition from a boy to a mature man. Dave urges himself to steal the catalogue from the little shop but gets caught and asked why a boy would be leaving with a gun catalogue. Among his transition age from being a boy to being a proper man. Dave provokes his mother to allow him to purchase one gun. His final investment towards the clerk was $2.00 for the old stationary gun and took it back home. Dave whines to his mother that the gun was hidden under the barn. Turns out the entire time, Dave snuck it and hid it beneath his pillow, without the location being known or exact of where it was and who has it. The following day, Dave leaves upon his work on the plantation that is way behind and goes to the woods, with Jenny the mule. At the time, Dave had his gun and wanted to practice with it. Accidentally, Dave unintentionally shoots Jenny, and begs with great mercy that he didn’t mean to harm her in a violent way. The sounds of words in Dave’s head were spinning round and round. “Why did you do such a thing Dave, Why?” Dave ran on and on somewhere else that know one can know his location at the time. Dave runs his reputation and no one-can/will trust Dave anymore. “Almos A Man”, shows that the primarily location of Dave’s location extends through out its exteriors. Dave spends all his day and time working in the South on a vastly plantation with many folk and farmers. It is very dry and hot for many of the farm folk. The story depicts what Dave appearance is.

Therefore, the valid quote states, “Whosoever does wrong, wrongs himself”, interprets Laurie who plays the center role of Charles whom has his mis-deeds and attainable chances as he takes upon in his Kindergarten class and receives consequences by his teacher and parents. Laurie is a typical five year old whom is humorous of making all the exaggerations up at school being that his parents find out that he was using the identity of Charles in school. As people part in Laurie’s sticky situation, it was difficult for him to start his first time in Kindergarten and hard to adjust with other kids in whom he never seen before. His personal bad influence was a major impact on the class. Laurie always has gives in to his parents about his days at schools. He tells his patents that there is another student in the class whom is doing bad consequences meaning that he gave his entire class detention and staying after. The parents of Laurie became pre-cautious of what he was beginning to do. Laurie as Charles disrespected his teacher in a myriad of un-reasonable manners. His parents wanted to meet with his teacher and talk about this Charles. Laurie’s actions led himself to punishment by his parents. Turns out there are no Charles told by his teacher. Laurie then thought to him all the internal and external damage he has done to himself and others. Leading to all this misfortunate consequences, lying and bad behavior leads to consequences or misjudgment.

In Conclusion, the luring quote interprets, “Whosoever does a wrong, wrongs himself, depicts that doing a wrongdoing is only hurting your self internally and leading yourself into some horrible consequences. The two literary works, “Almos A Man” and “Charles” depicts doing a mis-deed leads you into your own attainable trouble and consequences. If you do a bad deed, it won’t do any good to yourself.
