She cannot tell that what she is doing could be seen as bragging which hurts the class indirectly. She is completely wrapped up in her own past experiences with the sun and is somewhat grieving over her loss of it. This shows Margot’s pain. Also, Margot does not look at the other children or talk to them during recess. She actually refuses to speak to another kid when he talks to her; she will not play any of their games.
The governess is clearly insane because her behavior shows the symptoms of someone who is a paranoid schizophrenic. A paranoid schizophrenic is one whose mind is not intact with reality and thinks someone or something is out to get them. On the governess’ first night in Bly, she believes she recognizes “the cry of a child” and the sound of its “light footstep” (James 8). Here, the governess is experiencing and auditory hallucination. Auditory hallucinations are a common symptom of schizophrenia, which is a form of insanity.
Jealousy in All Summer in a Day and Flowers for Algernon In the stories, All Summer in a Day by Rad Bradbury and Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes demonstrates how jealousy can bring out the worst of you. Therefore, jealousy can drive you to do bad things to those surrounding you. For instance, in All Summer in a Day the kids that lived in Venus for their whole entire life’s were jealous of Margot because she had experienced being outdoors when the sun has been up. Due to their jealousy, they did something awful to Margot the day that the sun was going to be up which is only up every seven years. In the other hand, in Flowers for Algernon, Charlie’s co-workers seemed to be jealous of Charlie since he was improving his level of intelligence because of the operation that he went through, thus they are treating him differently.
Melinda gets depressed and starts expressing her pain through stuff like biting her lips and her nails, and not talking. At the end of the story she finally found her voice and was able to stand up for herself. In the beginning, Melinda didn't talk to anyone, barely even to her parents. She says, “I have tried so hard to forget every second of that stupid party and here I am in the middle of a hostile crowd that hates me for what I had to do. I can't tell them what really happened” (Anderson, 28).
Mildred becomes obsessed with “the wall” and ultimately ignores Montag. It can also be seen by the lack of a familial relationship between the children and the parents. Because the children are always in “the nursery”, the parents do not interact or communicate with their children enough.

Lack of empathy causes violence, distrust, and polarization . This is a quote is from Ray Bradbury’s short story, All Summer in a Day. “But she did not move; rather she let herself be moved only by him and nothing else. They edged away from her, they would not look at her. She felt them go away.” (Bradbury 2).
In fahrenheit 451, Mildred wants to kill herself because she is very unhappy. Some might argue that she is just sick, but that isn’t all because she depicts signs that she is depressed, lonely, and lacks the feeling of love. This could all be causes of society having a negative effect on Mildred and her wellbeing; technology, obsession, and being unable to cope with her emotion are all factors that play into Mildred life. Fahrenheit 451 burns through the thoughts of readers as controversy spills out of the pages. Guy Montag, firefighter, husband, and a truth seeker, goes through multiple barriers trying to figure out the questions no one dares to ask.
Good thing my lips stitched together or I’d throw up.” (pg. 45-46). The cause of Melinda’s dreary mood obviously comes from IT’s abuse. Andy Evans constantly harassing Melinda in the hallways reminds her of the horrid rape and keeps the image in her mind. This is why Melinda cannot wake up from her nightmare and is emotionally unstable.
Her fear consumes her life and as a result she starts to sleepwalk. While sleepwalking Lady Macbeth talks to herself and says, “What, / will these hands ne’er be clean?” (Macbeth 5.1.38-39) She’s afraid of her past sins and troubled by the destruction they have caused. Lady Macbeth is terrified she can never fully cleanse her soul and will be stuck with this guilty conscience forever. While sleepwalking she relives the night of Duncan’s murder, this time experiencing the fear of committing such a crime. She despises what she’s done, and hates herself for it every day.
"Hale: I believe him! (pointing at Abigail) This girl has always struck me false! She has—(Abigail, with a weird, wild, chilling cry, screams up to the ceiling.)"
