He explained these things to Brother Joseph in his way, out of the old Scriptures, and got Joseph to inquire, etc. He would inquire, and as mouthpiece speak out the revelations just as they had it fixed up in their hearts....according to the desires of the heart, the inspiration comes, but it may be the spirit of man that gives it.... This is the way the High Priests and the 'priesthood' as you have it, was introduced into the Church of Christ almost two years after its beginning--and after we had baptized and confirmed about two thousand souls into the church." (An Address To All Believers In Christ, by David Whitmer p. 64) "You have changed the revelations from the way they were first given and as they are today in the Book of Commandments, to support the error of Brother Joseph in taking upon himself the office of Seer to the church. You have changed the revelations to support the error of high priests.
It is not free and has to be earned. It is earned by soldiers risking their lives for their country. It is earned by soldiers thinking about others before themselves. It is earned by honorable men and woman, who believe that we deserve freedom, and we should not have to die for our own freedom. They are paying the price of death so that
When she says, “ I say that this crime is holy,” she is stating that her brother deserves to be honored in death, whether it be against the law or not, she will bury him. If she “must die”, she knows it will be for a purpose and she is willing to sacrifice her life for that purpose. Antigone is brave enough to stand up for her brother’s honor, once again proving she has more courage than Creon. Antigone continues to discuss with Ismene how she feels and declares, “ I am not afraid of danger; if it means death, it will not be the worst of deaths - death without honor.” She is admits her concern for her brothers’ death without being honored. When Antigone announces, “ I am not afraid of danger”, she is confessing her dis-concern for what will happen to her if she acts upon her plan.
Always, I think Mark Antony speech is better than Brutus’s because Antony actually put effort into his speech about Caesar when Brutus was one of the persons who killed Caesar. So that shows that Brutus really didn’t care about Caesar. “Men have become brutish beasts and lost their reason.” The quote is saying that men have lost their reason after Caesar’s death because people actually cared about him
Gilgamesh is given more than one chance to become immortal. Yet, despite his reputation for being victorious in all battles, he fails at both opportunities. One could argue that Gilgamesh was not actually so afraid of death but was, perhaps, afraid of living without his friend, Enkidu. Perhaps, he was simply having a hard time coping with Enkidu's shameful death. Perhaps the quest for eternal life was nothing more than a chance to prove that eternal life is unachievable.
They are not just father figures, but father figures to heros. Both Harry and Beowulf defeated great evils. In addition, Hrothgar and Dumbledore also share fatal flaws that will ultimately end in their failure: Hrothgar is Pagan and cannot protect his people, while Dumbledore could not keep himself alive while keeping up the double-agent act. Both characters are heroes in their own way, but in the end fail in one way or another. However, through their own good deeds and the deeds of their adoptive sons, everything works out in the end.
4 Crispin Glover Hated The Ending of Back To The Future Everyone loved Crispin Glover in his role as Marty McFly's nerdy father, George, in Back to the Future, but Crispin wasn’t pleased about the way that the film ended. And even though he was only 20 years old at the time he voiced his displeasure to director Robert Zemeckis. Crispin felt that the alternate future depicted at the end of the movie, where the McFly family is rich and Marty has a new truck sent the wrong the message and suggested it should be changed. To say that Zemeckis was not thrilled with the young actors’ idea is an understatement. He was livid.
Through this decision, it is clear that he has prioritized his want for revenge and excess wealth over the safety of the woman he loves. This could essentially lead readers to question what they, themselves would do if they were placed in a similar situation. Of course, many would say that they would sacrifice themselves for the sake of their loved ones, is that their true desire? It is possible that many people would act in the way Moss did-
Harper Lee uses Tom Robinson in her novel To Kill a Mockingbird to demonstrate the theme that racism instigates an unjust society and a loss of innocence. Firstly, Harper Lee uses Jem Finch to show lost of innocence in the presence of inequality. After Tom Robinson’s conviction, Jem said to his father, “Atticus, said Jem bleakly...How could they do it, how could they?” (page 285) Jem is confused about the optimum of Tom’s conviction. It is his first time to see grownups make a wrong decision because of inequality. It is
Antigone would like for Polyneices to be honored by having him buried and having an appropriate tomb for him. However, Kreon wants the opposite for him, he is very much against burying Polyneices and will do everything in his power, including killing Antigone to get what he wants. It is not until the very end that he has come around to the idea and realizes that he should set Antigone free and construct a tomb for his son. Both Antigone and Kreon are admirable for different reasons, Antigone for being willing and brave to go against Kreon’s wishes and Kreon for finally realizing that what he thought was right was actually in the end not the right thing. In the end, Kreon also believes that it is his choices that made his wife and his son, Haemon, to kill them.
