Anne did not like all of the people she stayed with, like Mr. Dussel, but she did not discriminate. That could explain why she said that she believes people kindhearted deep down. Anne could have decided to hate Dussel and skip his Hanukkah gift, but she did anyway and that contributes to the quotes later said about others. Anne was optimistic and looked on the bright side of everything. She said in the play ‟Don’t say that, it’s so wonderful to see them!
One of the things that makes it such a good book is the rawness you feel the whole time. Gaby didn’t leave anything out when writing the book. Hearing of her struggles, accomplishments, and disappointments helps the reader really relate to her as a person. Knowing that someone your age did something so brave
Yolanda is the primary daughter whose full struggle is detailed throughout the text. The other daughters are interlaced into the stories, however, without as much detail as Yolanda. Yolanda, the self proclaimed wild one of the daughters, was very popular because of her personality at boarding school. This went away at college as she refused to sleep with any of her admirers. Yolanda struggles with language, the open sexuality at that time, her religious beliefs and the sense that her family unit is being torn apart as they try to conform to the culture
In addition, the sisters in 10 Things… had many moments throughout the movie in which they got along with each other and actually helped one another such as when Bianca begged Kat to help her go to party and Kat actually agreed to helping her as she felt bad. This is very different from the play as there were never any moments where the sisters actually got along and helped out each other. Another essential point in the film is when Kat decided to go into Bianca’s and told her that she cares for her and she is only trying to protect her when she helps her dad keep her from going places. This is one of the most contrastive points from the movie as the play did not have any moments where the a sister expressed her care and love for the other, displaying a much less distasteful relationship than the one in the
“Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you” (Anonymous). This quote is very similar to how Adeline tries to live her life, despite all that is against her. In the memoir, Adeline lives being an unwanted, unwelcomed child, in the hands of a cruel mother, and a father who does not even remember her name. Adeline still tries to keep her talents close to her, and writing and learning in school lets her drift away from her adversaries at home. The whole novel makes me feel very inspirational about Adeline because how she can triumph over her challenges, still lives her life, and succeed in the way she did.
Tamora’s resolve get the most violent revenge possible – ‘I’ll find a day to massacre them all, | And raze their faction and their family (1.1.455-6) – continues into her implementing the same inhuman brutality that has been displayed by the Romans. The atrociousness that took place against Lavinia is a gruesome, yet critical, component of the play. The episode brings sexual violence into the story, and ushers in a conspicuous stretch of verbal violence – that is inherent in the speech. The sexually vicious conversation between Chiron and Demetrius is both sexist and masochistic: ‘Stay, madam, here is more belongs to her [Lavinia]: | First thrash the corn, then after burn the straw. | This minion stood upon her chastity’
It all started with a small disagreement, but it escalated to the point that they just completely acted like enemies. I was able to help them become kind and basically friends with each other, but those times were very tough for me because I hated being in a hateful atmosphere. I did everything I can to end the fight and luckily they are no longer enemies and if anything love each other again. “ Feeling individuals are more empathetic and focus on social harmony and cooperation,” is a very accurate quote by the Myers and Brigg Foundation that described how I felt during that
She explains that no one is perfect by saying “every diamond has imperfections” and “True love breathes salvation back into me” which I understand to be her seeing her loves faults and forgiving him for them. Throughout the record we hear her discovering, wrestling with, and finally forgiving her loves infidelity. Lyrically the song talks about of course forgiveness, but also rebuilding trust after betrayal, with the protagonist trying to rekindle passion with her lover. The deeper meaning of this song is that of which I have stated before which is that love, that is true and real, can withstand any test and will always find the light at the end of the
Later in the book we find out that, she is raped by her father, Cholly. Pecola’s curiosity to find and maintain Blue eyes causes her to lose her innocence as a child. Pecola’s parents also added to the problems she had to deal with, her parents were always fighting which ultimately led to Pecola becoming crazy. In the beginning the first time Pecola started paying attention to her physical ugliness was when her parents were fighting. Right after, she mentioned “She also knew that when one of the girls wanted to be particularly insulting to a boy, or wanted to get an immediate response from him, she
At the end, the family was let free at the condition that they never enter the beauty contest again. They get in the van and leaves for their home place smiling. This whole scene demonstrates how the family builds up Olive’s self-esteem and self-confidence by supporting her so much throughout her whole journey to the beauty contest. Olive does not let her childhood lose over the beauty contest. Although she is seem as an amateur in front of the other little girls, she is beautiful as she is.
Where has that strength gone? I have seen you make it through situations when you were incapable of studying or leading clubs because of asthma. I have seen you smile as they cheered after your campaign speech for president of student government, even though you were the only one in the room who knew how nervous you were the night before. I have seen you fight for what you believed was right. Like for the times, you became extension programmer for Girl Up, when spreading the news of girl empowerment to other Rwandan girls was you’re greatest inspiration or times when your girls at school needed you to reform the tiring school timetable.
Despite what my mom has been through, she acknowledges that things can be worse and even though it may be very difficult for her to get through the day at times, she still finds the strength to do so. This interview was just as much for her as it was for me. One role was not more significant than the other; we both played key parts in this experience. This interview was about listening and more importantly, understanding. To find myself in someone else’s story is a beautiful thing and I am appreciative of this experience for allowing that to happen.
Ever since they had been in California she had been dying to go back home. There was something about the feeling of being alone and having to take care of things herself that felt uncomfortable to her. April on the other hand, was the complete opposite. The simple fact that there was no one there to pick her classes or tell her what to invest was aa wave of relief to her. The girls had always lived under the wing of their silk-stocking parents and they had quite opposing thoughts on it.
