Do you ever wonder if we make the moments in our lives or if the moments in our lives make us? In Henry IV Part One Prince Hal is a character that we see change and it is in that change from a juvenile delinquent to a knightly king that helps justify the circle.
Prince Hal had his motives for hanging with the pub crawalers; he expected that it would make him look better in the eyes of his future subjects. He made those moments with the 'outcasts', but that doesn't mean those moments didn't make an impact. In Henry V Prince Hal becomes an incredible king whose subjects respect and adore. But the quetion still remains if it was because he chose to spend time with the ordinary people, or because his time spent with them impacted him for the better.
Do we make the moments in our lives or do the moments in our lives make us?
