5.141). This reaction seems misplaced since Dante is talking to two people who committed a deadly sin; however, this reaction conveys that Dante believes that love itself is a valuable virtue, but the reader must be aware that adulterous love is not virtuous. The position that Dante the Poet establishes is that the souls in Hell are there not only because they committed sins, but because they corrupted pure virtues to work in their favor. In Purgatory, Dante encounters lust and love again, but the souls have a love for God in addition to the perverted love they had in their life. Virgil presents to Dante that there is a love that is naturally within everyone and that the “natural is always without error / but mental love may choose an evil object / or err through too much or too little” (Pur.
Satan makes an impressive speech with a strong leader image. Here, some readers empathize with Satan and blame God for such cruelty. The important thing here is that Satan does not only influences his fallen angels, but also influences the actual reader to agree with him. Arguably, reader does not get this idea until meeting Satan in person. Reader is forced to question his own morals to decide which side here is actually the righteous one.
Her use of star is to contrast her idea of “perfection”. Perfect is not being like the majority of society, rather, being the best each person can be. It is not always about being at the top, it is about being unique and ourselves. Loving what makes each person
Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else.’ This specific quote connects immensely to the overall theme, as those with differences are subjected to fit in with others by inequitable treatment towards the group. In the short story, individuals of higher capabilities/beauty were handicapped in an effort to create worldwide equality. However, equality comes with acceptance, thus the majority ought to welcome all and work together in an effort to
Sin is choosing resentment over compassion, ugliness over beauty, deceit over wisdom. Sin is a moral evil. And as Montfort tells us, sin is rarely presented as evil but rather as good. “In general, they do not teach sin openly, but they speak of it as if it were virtuous, or blameless, or a matter of indifference and of little consequence. This guile which the devil has taught the world in order to conceal the heinousness of sin
However, since these bodies have no flaws, Barilan says that these bodies might belong to saints . But Adam and Eve are not saints. They are imperfect human beings now. It is curious that even though Adam and Eve are being removed from paradise, changed into a mortal form, and physically punished for their misdeeds they show no aesthetic
Satan compounds this fallacy by asserting, without evidence, that angels do not err. Satan asks rhetorically who “…can introduce Law and edict on us who, without law ere not…?” (5, lines 797-799) This is a seductive half-truth, submitted without documentation. The angels, having been continuously subject to God’s Law up to this time, have not erred. But they are about to commit the most grievous err possible in rebelling against God’s authority. Having argued that God usurped his authority, denigrated the angels rank in heaven’s hierarchy, and that submitting to God’s law is accepting the yoke of slavery, Satan asserts that God is demanding adoration for his abusive behavior claiming, “…much less for this to be our lord, and look for adoration to the abuse.
All people have the ability to be good and help others, however, it can be very difficult for them to do so. On the surface, people can appear to be very good and civil due to the influence that society has on them. However, when one gets too much freedom away from their societies rules, the surface where one is good and civil goes away leaving only the ugly truth where people are evil. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Simon, a representation of Christ, demonstrates the contrast between who people really are and who people should be. Instead, many try to deny their evil nature but it is illuminated that at the root all humans are, in actuality, evil.
Where there is a health there is happiness. Here the meaning of happiness is not the pleasure out of fulfillment of the desire but the jubilant feeling all the time that is free from fears and tensions. Today, in our world, we need two items to make our lives a complete success. The first item which we lack is “vitality”, which is not physical strength, but inner strength, will power, clarity of mind and the ability to perform every action, with perfection. The second item we lack is tranquility.
As I have mentioned above, demons are seen as bad spirits but they have also been recognize as good spirits. Not a spirit of sorrow and pain, but a magnificent spirit of power. "That is why Acleptos changed the words of the motto in front of the Sane Asylum. They now read: A devil is just a sick angel." - Fallen Star, by John Collier.
On a lighter note, the video that Bunnee just put up, not too long ago, was a waste of my time to watch, but she looks neat-looking in it in some ways, but the video is lame, for the most part, with the queerish-looking dude in it, which is not Dogman. I 'm not Sheldanyeyaw, nor even close: Sheldanyeyaw is a holy angel, who has a lot of power, and he never sinned and never will. I 'm just a holy human, meaning a Christian. There are huge differences between humans and angels. However, Sheldanyeyaw is one of the
