Ignored can lead to catastrophic consequences. In the story into the wild by Jon Krakauer the main character Chris Mccandless attempts to conform with nature alone with transcendental ways but dies as a result. Mccandless resolution was unjustified because he left his friends and family to distress, he did not have adequate materials to sustain himself in the wilderness and he overestimated himself throughout his journey. Some may argue that it was his right to strive for his goal by his philosophy but he ignored offers that would have kept him alive. Mccandless followed his journey to Alaska.
I knew how much he wanted to hear it, but being Dallas Winston, an awkward person who never knew how to show his feelings, I never got to tell him. I didn 't want to face the corpse in front of me. I didn 't want to see the mistakes I 've made. The mistake for not wanting him to get tough. You get tough like me, and nothing can hurt you.
Second Shadow “There is no advertisement as powerful as a positive reputation traveling fast” ( Brian Koslow). Although this quote is talking about the advertisement of one’s reputation, the main point of the quote shows that a positive reputation is a powerful source of one’s character. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, upholding one’s reputation is a dominant theme. In the play, there are many situations where characters’ reputations are put to the test. From the outcomes of these tests, the viewpoint that other characters hold of their peers affects the plot, conflict, and outcome of Arthur Miller’s drama.
Chris had a huge impact on everyone he knew, but he would not let them influence him or his decisions at all. He rebelled against his family because his father was too controlling. Later on, when any of his companions told him not to go to Alaska, or tried telling him to do anything that he did not want to, he would totally ignore them, and change the subject. As Krakauer writes in chapter 6, “McCandless…relieved that he had again evaded the impending threat of human intimacy, of friendship, and all the messy emotional baggage that comes with it. He had fled the claustrophobic confines of his family.
For this essay I am going to write about the pros and cons about why George and Lennie´s partnership would be good and bad, For this part of the essay I am going to be writing about why I think Lennie and George´s partnership would be beneficial. For example I think that George and Lennie´s partnership would be beneficial because, Lennie does not seem as bright of a person like George. Another reason why I think that their partnership would be beneficial is because George seems tough, and he looks like he can do a lot of things on his own with or without Lennie. But, Lennie looks like he would have a hard time surviving without George because Lennie seems like he has a hard time understanding a lot of things, he could also be a little mentally
This makes his story more heartbreaking in my opinion. Because he was carrying numerous forms of ID on him, he unmistakably wasn’t planning on deserting society forever; he wanted to return hopefully someday. Perhaps he would have written a book about his whereabouts or what he grasped about the significance of life while absorbed in the wild. Maybe he would have justified why he never contacted his parents. Although Chris inspired many people from his Alaskan expedition, he could have inspired so many more if he had survived.
Beowulf was a hero. He was one who has battled what most of us will fear. He won when most of us will fail. But still, like any other person, Beowulf has a weakness; and that weakness is the lack of self control. Lack of self control against greed.
Absolutism 's nature of putting complete control of a nation into one person has not always been successful, however there are ways in which it does succeed in being an effective way of ruling. As Machiavelli 's "The Prince" stated: People always will have a motive of bettering themselves, and they will attempt to do so through duplicity and great avarice. Their loyalty and compliance to a leader is assured as long as the one they follow has an allure, so granting trust and power can lead to their betrayal and could cause the fall of the monarch’s reign. If all power rests with a single individual, there will be a far less chance that a struggle within a nation 's very own government will occur. Absolutism in this respect does well, as it
