The following include five moments where Jean Valjean had to choose between what he wanted and what he thought was right:
1.When he sacrifices his position as mayor and wealth from the factory he owned in order to save the life of the convict who is to be hanged in his stead.
2. When he elects to raise Cosette after Fantine's death.
3. When he elects to fight with the revolutionaries rather then fleeing Paris when he had the chance.
4. When he spares Javere's life while among the revolutionaries.
5. When he saves Enjolras rather then letting him die.
