If they had followed, they would’ve been killed too. His confidence lead to his admirability. Some people could say that he shouldn’t earn the award because he was always very irritable. Vladek was irritable, but that didn’t affect his survival, the survival of others, or his family relationships. He was loving when times were rough and he deserves the award.
While Hero is willing to have a controlling husband, Beatrice shows that she wants to have her own and answer to no man. She 's not having that. Her favorite target is Benedick, with whom she has something of a history, to the extent that she exercises her talent for mocking him on the poor unsuspecting messenger and takes the first opportunity to needle him once he arrives. She really doesn’t have any interest of having a husband. Her slick mouth and attitude will truly prevent her from
Obligation can be used to describe if a relationship is true love or infatuation. True love can be described by explaining how a couple can go against obligations to be with each other. This can emphasize their commitment and dedication. Romeo and Juliet can be used as evidence to this because it says, “His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy. My only love sprung from my only hate.”
I don’t think it’s right to euthanize people with mental disabilities because they’re still people and they still have hope for a better future and their life is still important even if it doesn’t seem like it. I do agree with George killing Lennie because Lennie would die a really harsh, painful, and slow death by the other men that were trying to find him if George didn’t calm him down and shoot him. Of course, it was the biggest plot twist in the whole book and it broke our hearts, but George did if for the best. In conclusion, George did the right thing and actually helped Lennie instead of harming him and others around
Throughout Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Gawain believes he exemplifies everything a knight should be, but by the end of the story, he realizes he is more flawed than he thought. He gives into temptation to avoid death, the very thing he should be prepared to face any day of his life. He is extremely disappointed in himself, but he should not have been; chivalry was a great idea, but that was it. Chivalry was never, and will never be, a realistic way men or women should live their
The American Revolution was said to have been almost lost on multiple occasions, however, because of the American’s courage, strength and perseverance they were able to defeat the British and earn their independence. Winning a war isn’t an easy task especially against the greatest army in the world at the time, but because of the unity of the American people or the colonists at the time, because of their courage, strength and perseverance they benefited from it and because of these factors they were able to win the war and claim what they so strongly believed they had the right to. Courageous people have been displayed throughout all of history, and especially in fictional tales and stories told by people. However, this is no tale,
“Life doesn't cost him a thought” (Heaney 1536). This quote shows bravery because he is brave and confident in himself that he will fight to the fullest when he battles monsters it's like he's not scared of death and real quick to risk his life to save or help others. “Yet the prince of the rings was too proud to line up with a large army” ( 2345-2346). This quote shows bravery because it shows he’s too proud to fight with an army he rather fight one on one and that shows that he is brave and not afraid. “I shall win the gold by my courage, or else mortal combat, doom of battle, will bear your lord away” (2535-2537).
These two acts of brilliance shows that strategy and smarts can help you survive or even can help become successful at something. Rainsford and Kane both believe they might not make it but come out as the hero of the story. Both people may have two jobs but they both become successful in the long run. Being hunted didn 't stop them so eventually they soon overcame being hunted and they also believed they can survive. Using your head many situations can lead to many things in life coming easier to you.
As the author is told he is being drafted to war, he becomes very upset. He clearly does not want to be part of it. His initial says, “I was too good for this war. Too smart, too compassionate, too everything. It couldn’t happen.
He thinks that if he dies like this, all is not lost and that, despite his reputation, he may still be admired for certain qualities. He also refuses to be affected by the death of this wife either. He says, “She would have died hereafter”. He pushes it to the back of his mind and focuses on the battle rather than Lady Macbeth’s demise. In Scene 8, before Macbeth is slain, the last thing he says is “Lay on Macduff, / And damn’d be him that first cries, ‘Hold, enough!”.
then the text added, “Ender’s taunting question was the answer to their complaints,” (192). This pushed the army to the limit because they knew that he was counting on them to win and not give up so effortlessly. This also showed leadership because it gave them confidence to keep fighting and win.
When he was smarter the whole world was a different thing for Charlie. Not only did that give him courage and something to really be happy about, but it helped him realize more things about life that he did not realize before. In progress report 11 on page 125 it states that “When I became smart like Dr.Straus said, with three times my IQ of 68, then maybe I’ll be like everyone else, and people will like me and want to be my friend.” This and all of my previous answers is what led me to think that he was better off after the surgery.
“‘Tis better to have loved and lost/Than never to have loved at all,” (Lord Tennyson, “Canto 27). Can one really say that loving and losing is better than never feeling that love, when both choices are riddled with error? The following stories referenced, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, “Pyramus and Thisbe” retold by Ovid, and “Duty” by Pamela Rafael Berkman, show the contrast between sacrificing love and sacrificing life. Romeo and Juliet, as well as Pyramus and Thisbe, sacrificed everything for love. Lady Capulet, on the other hand, sacrificed her love for the obligations she felt she had to her family.

If someone were to ask you the difference between the twentieth century and the twenty first, the list assembled would include things such as: technology, transportation, education, etc. However, most people don’t realize the difference in the responsibility taken on by teenagers. In 1942, young adults from the age of fifteen were being drafted from their families to train for the war so that when they reached eighteen they were ready to be sent away to bloodshed. In today’s society most young adults do have jobs and involvement in extracurricular activities, but nothing compares to the war they were brought up to know. As a young adult, it’s not completely rare to experience our own kind of war - against family, friends and even within ourselves.
