She contributes a fleet of her personal yet then comes to a decision to depart on the peak of the conflict, taking all of her ships along with her. And Antony’s so fuzzy approximately his naval priorities that he follows her! Octavian will get to turn into the omnipotent emperor Caesar Augustus, whereas Antony’s loss on the conflict of Actium tanks his army and political destiny and is going down in historical past as some of the most humiliating maritime defeats ever. Shakespeare fairly performs up Antony’s unmanliness while he has the soldier Scarus describe him as a “doting mallard” flying after Cleopatra: “I by no means observed an motion of such disgrace. / adventure, manhood, honour, ne’er before / Did violate so itself. ” Ouch. Lesson realized: hearken to your wingman, or turn out a lame duck.

He has no regrets, yet it's your decision to think carefully earlier than determining to “pour this pestilence” into your boss’s ear. we advise pouring your self this sort of Con-i-kazes as an alternative. it may possibly no longer provide the similar misanthropic rush, yet it’ll boring the soreness of mediocrity and allow you to retain your retirement bennies.
