(m2MB) Anne realizes that she needs to stay calm and respect her mother, but she has great difficulty in doing so.

Instead, they may dislike each other and fight.
A great law was broken the moment Prynne was conceived by her mother. “In giving her existence a great law had been broken; and the result was a being whose elements were perhaps beautiful and brilliant, but all in disorder, or with an order peculiar to themselves, amidst which the point of variety and arrangement was difficult or impossible to be discovered” (82). Hester Prynne, Pearl Prynne’s mother, broke a big law by having sex outside of marriage. This causes Prynne to fall out of harmony because she is a product of sin, making her disordered because she wasn’t conceived out of “normal” circumstances.

and I could not have been any prouder of myself. Ever since I was a little girl my two cousins Joana and Julia would constantly bully me. I was never a big girl, my pant sizes were always 0 to 2 but Joana and Julia made it seem as if I was the fattest girl alive. “Seriously, that is too big for a seventh grader,” Joana would say in disbelieve as if she was holding an obese person’s pants.
Antigone in the views of some readers may be the less loyal sister for putting Ismene in the situation to go against the law and to go against her beliefs. In the eyes of other readers, Ismene is the less loyal sister as her loyalty in the beginning did not lie with her family. The different beliefs of the sisters have an affect on the central theme by both showing and not showing loyalty to one another. Antigone's loyalty became questionable as she let her sister get in trouble for something she didn’t want any part in. They showed loyalty by one deciding to finally help, and the other sister showed loyalty by having her sister arrested to not get in trouble, even though Ismene did get in
Regret is a feeling that one gets after doing something wrong or failing to do something. This feeling makes a person reflect on their actions in order to learn, grow and develop into a better, stable person. In Louisa May Alcott 's novel "Little Women”, regret is always followed by anger towards the end of a situation.

Theodore Laurence also acted impulsively when he embarrassed Margaret March because he got irritated from Josephine for not telling him a secret.
One of the scariest days of my life was the day I brought my first child, Noah home. I can remember getting home and feeling like I had no idea what I was doing. I was exhausted, sore, and scared out of my mind. I remember everyone telling me you just know what to do when you become a mother, but here I was with this little person, and I felt completely lost. I wasn’t able to get breast feeding down, I could’t stop the crying, and I felt the saddest
When my parents started dating, I was furious just thinking about them with someone else besides each other. When my dad got remarried to this woman, Ellen Cook, I didn’t think I could hate someone more than I hated her. She was the worst woman I ever met and so was her family. Every weekend I would go to their house it was like torture. I was either being called fat or hearing my sister being called fat.
In this assignment I will be comparing and contrasting The Tell Tale Heart, written by Edgar Allen Poe and The Cold Embrace written by Mary E. Braddon. These two horror stories share similarities, however they also have their differences. One of the main differences in these stories is the technique the author chooses to open the story, which creates a certain tone for the two stories. In our case, both stories open with the main character giving a message to the reader of their life.
Rather than writing a story of love, Edgar Allan Poe took a heart, typically a symbol of love, and created “The Tell-Tale Heart”, a twisted and dark story of a heart with ever-changing moods.

With these two quotes, the author of the story creates a mood of anxiety by describing how cautiously the narrator put his head through the door.
