The narrator was cruel and made him touch it, with major accomplishments the final quote “Don’t leave me brother, don’t leave me.” (Hurst) [Doodle] Fully out of self pride, the narrator was fed up with his brother, he hated hauling him around all day and he truthfully in the narrator’s eyes “A burden in many ways” (Hurst) The day that the narrator started teaching his brother to walk, was a memorable one, he acted as if it was out of love, but it was truthfully out of self pride. It was grueling to force Doodle’s body to move correctly and not falter, The narrator acted as if it was to help his brother, and have a better outcome for the world, but he truthfully did it out of pride because he didn’t want the humiliation of an invalid brother. Doodle learned out to walk, but the narrator wouldn’t stop there. He forced his brother to do more grueling tasks. “Do you want to be different from everyone else when you start school?” (Hurst) [Narrator] “Does it make a different?” (Hurst) [Doodle] The narrator forced his brother into something that they couldn’t find a way out, “The net of expectations” (Hurst) The tasks were too hard for little Doodle, he became
His desire to fulfil this wish resulted in the death of his brother at a young age. The Narrator has already done well his brother walk. Since he was so selfish and with so much pride, teaching his brother how to walk was not enough for him. He wanted more out of doodle even if it meant for his brother to die at a tender age. No one is infallible.
Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595). Doodle is weakened and incapable of doing activities normal kids do at his age. The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
One of the many reasons the Holocaust is haunting to everyone. The Holocaust seemed like it was ran by heartless soldiers who had no feelings or emotions or guilt whatsoever. In the middle of the book, Wiesel talked about this young boy, also known as a pipel, who was hung in front of everyone because he was accused of messing with the power. (Wiesel 55) At first the boy did not die instantly, he hung, struggling for over a half an hour, and the soldiers just watched. There was not an ounce of remorse in their bodies, they can have at least put in out of his misery, but instead they watched him like they watch the news.
What was once a lukewarm stance on the war turned into a fiery, passionate hatred for the war and anyone who agreed with it. He began to loathe even the people in his hometown; he “held them responsible.” He described his state of mind as a kind of schizophrenia, and his entire life revolved around the draft notice. Even the description of his workplace turned into an ambience of war, calling the tools he used “guns,” and discussing how the odor never left his skin, just like the thought of killing someone at war would never leave him. Tim became ashamed of his country, unsure of the USS maddox, unsure of what happened in the Gulf of Tonkin and unsure about the people leading the war. “The only certainty that summer was moral confusion.” Tim was an educated man and because the war did not add up in his mind, it made him uncertain, and even ashamed of his country.
A proud heart can survive a general failure because such a failure does not prick its pride. It is more difficult and more bitter when a man fails alone” (pg.24-25). The most prideful thing Okonkwo had done throughout the whole book was killing himself. We never really find out why he did it, but really it could have been because he was too stubborn to abide by the white man’s law. He knew it would most likely never change, so his solution was to kill himself.
Montresor is a well-layered character, filled with an unbridled hatred that drives his need for revenge. He uses his skills with deadly accuracy to achieve his ultimate goal: the destruction of Fortunato. Turning Fortunato’s own weaknesses against him, Montresor is able to lure Fortunato deep within the catacombs. He is clever and patient, biding his time until Fortunato is inebriated and away from the sights and sounds of the carnival before approaching him. Montresor is elaborate and methodical in his planning.
For example Oedipus says, “ For whoever he was who killed that man would as soon kill me with that same violent hand.” although he is the killer. Another example of irony is when Oedipus declares no one is allowed to speak to the person responsible for the curse of thebes, he says “ I decree no one shall receive him or speak to him nor make him partner in prayers to the gods or sacrifices.” although he is the one who brought the curse upon them. The use of Symbolism brought the forth the key to Oedipus figuring out his identity. The scars on his feet highlight he has been in pain since birth. It also emphasizes his ignorance ,since the scars are the keys to figuring out his identity.
The specialty of investigation all alone rejects the basic simple clarifications yet rather bargains in the mind boggling actualities. In spite of the fact that Iago is the regular disturbance and accordingly the conspicuous awful person, his fate is to make the disaster that this play later moves toward becoming. A protracted thought notwithstanding a receptive outlook will demonstrate the reality of the situation. Othello is the real miscreant. Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy.
He did not mind of course for he wanted it to succeed and he could see it in the eyes of the officials and guards that they were terrified of the rebellion and they know that the government is losing the game of cat and mouse which they played with the rebilion. Michael lost track of time completely and soon did not even remember what the outside looked, for now, he only cared about surviving the beating and the questionings that were set up by the officials. He swore that he would never crack and so far he never did and just nodded his head. He knew how much he angered the officials and sometimes he believed that they called down the sergeant to terrify him but yet he is never
According to the film and book “American Sniper", Chris only felt bad about the lives he couldn 't save, not the ones he did. He had no problem killing the enemy but could not bear to see his fellow servicemen be killed. Many marines look up to him as a savior because he was their only protection when walking down hostile streets. Enemy soldiers would hide and ambush so Kyle would prevent them from ambushing. He has had confirmed kills from over a mile away that most natural men wouldn’t be able to do.
Innocent civilized children became mad lunatics. From all voting for a leader to them separating and going against each other. From introducing their names to the murder of two. There is a strict thin line that can easily be crossed from civility to savagery or vice versa, based on the certain situations. Anyone can go insane based on what they’re going through, but in severe cases, people can surrender themselves to savagery, supporting the fact that all humans are innately savage.
Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
Not only it is hard but when they do, someone else inflicts evil upon them. The puritans were those who had it right. Puritans believed they were born totally depraved with the original sin, showing that evil is the nature of men and they had it all correct. They believed everyone had sin and it took an extraordinary person to overcome their evil impulses. The innocent persons
