• When Eve yielded to the temptation to eat of the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden that marked the time sin entered into the human will and heart. • God spoke words of judgment, and yet held forth a hope and promise for the redemption of mankind in the person of Jesus Christ Who was prophetically
Juliet was already married to Romeo, and wanted to be with him. The only way she could do this was to drink a potion that made her parents believe that she was dead so they could take her to the morgue and when she woke up that she would escape the morgue and make her way to Romeo to later be reunited. Atleast that was the initial plan. Unfortunately the priest who was in charge of telling Romeo that Juliet really was still alive, failed in his task because coincedently, he so happened to be captured by people who thought he might carry a disease or plague. Fate had made it so that the priest had just so precisely chosen that path and just so coincidentally had people in his path who thought he was carrying a disease, so they could deter him from his path causing him to fail and for Romeo to never receive the news.
But in these cases We still have judgement here, that we but teach Bloody instructions which, being taught, return To plague the inventor. This even-handed justice Commends th ingredients of our poison'd chalice To our own lips. He’s here in double trust: First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, Strong both against the deed; then, as his host, Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself. Besides, this
The only joy and happiness that she has now is from her boyfriend, Jeremey. And that boyfriend that just left to “pay the bill”, he has something special planned for Mariam, just wait and see. (lights come back up to full brightness. Jeremey enters carrying the sundae.)
Juliet just claimed she would rather die than to have Romeo be married to someone else. As dramatic as that already seems, also know that they had just met. And when Romeo runs to Friar John to ask to marry them, that could also be argued to be an act of lust. Romeo told him to “Do thou but close our hands with holy words. / then love-devouring death do what he dare, / It is enough I may but call her mine” (2.6.6-8).
Laila again struggled for her second child, again a sacrifice, even when the child this time belonged to Rasheed. The doctor said, “if we delay, you will lose the baby” “then cut me open....cut me open and give me my baby. (P- 283)” the strength and edurance of a woman has no end. The introductoion of zalmai, a male child, as a counterpart to the female child, aziza, serves to illustrate further the unfair treatment of woman under the present government. Later in the story, a fire destroys Rasheed’s shop, leaving him unemployed, at the same time Mariam comes to know of her father’s death.
John is put on a trail and won’t confess to witchcraft, so he is hanged. The whole reason Abigail started all this witchcraft mess was so that she could get rid of Elizabeth and marry John, and John is the one who ends up getting killed. If Abigail and John never would have had an affair, then Abigail wouldn’t have wanted to marry him, and she wouldn’t have asked Tituba to do Voodoo, which is what gets the girls in trouble to start with. John and Abigail’s affair caused them to have a complicated relationship, which turned into Abigail doing Voodoo, which led to the girls getting caught and being accused of witchcraft. If Abigail and John would have never
The Book of Job provides an example of how people should praise God by illustrating a blameless, responsible, and fearing man who will always turn away from evil. Therefore, this book presents the same man tortured by outside forces lacking the possibility to acquire help from family and friends. Throughout the reading in particular (14:11) demonstrates how there was a moment of weakness in which Job fails and ask for his death, but after all, he did not commit sin and endured waiting for his torment to banish. In addition, the book reveals how men turned against a man in need and instead judged him without understanding the sources causing his disgrace. However, the book provides a comparison in how humans behave by providing vivid examples of characters who showed behaviors illustrating how humanity functions.
In Persia, “no one, including the queen, could appear before the king without his express invitation,” because they could be subjected to death on the spot (MacArthur 138). According to human nature, it is probable that Esther was fearful of carrying out the task because she could end up losing her life; yet, she was valiant and risked sacrificing her life for the Jews. Esther’s decision to take the risk can be linked back to Mordecai’s words of wisdom. He told her that no matter what happened, she would always be a Jew and that her position as queen would not exempt her from the annihilation of the Jews. She was conflicted, but became brave when Mordecai consoled her and said that it was through God’s will that she has “come to the kingdom for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14).
The morning after Romeo gets banished, Juliet kept telling her mom she was not going to marry Paris, her mom saw Lord Capulet coming and said “Here comes your father. Tell him so yourself,/ And see how he will take it at your hands” (II.V. 124-125). Her dad threatened to kick her out if Juliet did not comply to marry Paris. He said to her “an you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets”(III.V. 193) stating that he will throw her out and disown her. He also said “for by my soul i’ll ne’er acknowledge thee,/nor what is mine shall never do thee good (II.V. 194-195)” meaning if I see you I will try not to acknowledge that you are there.
How does one win and when has one lost? This question is not always clear-cut when applied to life and its many events, especially when a large portion of “happiness” or suffering is involved. When losing, one can learn important lessons that cannot be taught whilst winning and vice versa when winning. This is why it is one’s job to analyze the goings-on of everything they see or experience to discern whether those involved are actually winning or losing. How can one who has suffered so much still be a winner?
APARNA SUNNY Comparing and Contrasting Liesel’s and Elie’s Experience The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and Night by Elie Wiesel, are about two souls who endured a great amount of anguish and misfortune. A Jew and a German, two individuals whose stories should have been remarkably different, turn out to be unexpectedly alike. Liesel’s and Elie’s experiences both comprise of destruction, self doubt, and the obligation to stay alive. Despite the similar experiences they confronted, they survived in their own means.
Elie Wiesel was very important person, Elie was a survivor of the Holocaust. He was one of the few that wanted to share the story, to let the world know what happened. He has shared his experience of the tragedy in many ways, he given speech, met with world leaders, and wrote books that millions of people have read. He changes thoughts, the way things look to people.
It was the end of 1942 I warned them, but they didn't listen. Foolish of them for not listening, but shame on me for not trying harder. The urge in some people to blow me off as crazy is preposterous. I came back to the town of Sighet to warn the people that death is approaching. I myself was nearly killed a few weeks back as they shipped me out of my own town for being a foreigner.
