Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules. In this context it is believable that Sarty wants to do the right things from now on,"If I had said they wanted only truth, justice, he would have hit me again." But now he said nothing. He was not crying. He just stood there”(Faulkner, 3).
Although his death may seem uneventful it is essential to the point that conflicts among families and friends only end tragically. Mercutio would have never challenged Tybalt if it weren’t for the hate that had been drilled into his mind. His whole life Mercutio had been taught to blindly
Of course, his actions do not resemble the behavior of a virtues man, but Don does not care what a decent man supposed to do. This attitude chose in the essence of all of his decisions. Consider, for instance, how he was ready to abandon his wife for and young 21-year-old woman, knowing that he would be leaving his kids in a broken family. At the same time, it does not seem that he did not love them. However, as true existentialist, he was acting according to what seems right for
He did what anyone would do if they had their own beliefs and dreams. McCandless was one special person who had very different views on the world with society. No matter how many people doubt his actions and felt he was wrong, they can't know the true reason for him doing so unless they were in his shoes. Although he did explain some of the reasons for doing so no one knew what was the exact point that made him have a belief that society was not needed. The courageous man Chris McCandless died knowing he had done what he believed and never gave up on
But I ignored their counsel, though that course would have avoided many griefs for us” (Homer 176) . Odysseus's leadership skills improve through the challenges he faces in the book, especially after the Cyclops incident. He thought it would be a good idea to wait so he could finally face and see the cyclops instead of to escape while they could, like his men wanted to. Due to Odysseus's curiosity his men weren't able to escape when they had the chance to and had to suffer being held hostage because of Odysseus's poor leadership skills. Another way Odysseus showed horrible leadership in the beginning was when he put himself before his crewman stating, “I asked my comrades to cast lots to see which men would dare to lift that stake with me and grind it into the Cyclops’ eye when sweet sleep overtook him” (Homer 179).
Jesse Owens achieved this goal by the help of his peers and the support he got from some of his family because some of his family members didn’t believe that his dream would happen, but he learned to take criticism really well because they didn’t believe in him and he was his motivator his own own motivator, you can’t say that their dream won’t come true unless you were in there shoes. Jesse Owens believed that he wasn’t going to be the best runner or even a runner at all because of the discourage he got from his peers. Jesse Owen believed in miracles in good things but the only thing he didn’t believe in was bad things or “you can’t do it” situations. He believed, of course it started out has a dream but then it turned into reality, the chance he got to run as an Olympic player not just as the audience cheering them on, he was the one who was being cheered on by his
Children learn from their parent’s mistakes and one thing Okonkwo learned was to rule by one thing” passion- to hate everything that his father Unoka had loved. One of those things was gentleness and another was idleness.” Therefore, he wants to raise Nwoye with fear and abuse since, his father raised him with gentleness. Okonkwo is afraid Nwoye will “be found to resemble his father” so, he treated him and Ikemefuna “with a heavy hand.” Okonkwo was “fond of the boy” but, he did not “express any emotion openly, unless it be the emotion of anger.” Therefore,” when Okonkwo heard that he would not eat any food he came into the hut with a big stick in his hand and stood over him while he swallowed his yams, trembling.” This shows that Okonkwo is raising Nwoye with fear so, he will raise up to be a successful man who will do what he is told no matter what and not be lazy. Okonkwo is scaring Nwoye that he will beat him so, he will listen to him. Everything Okonkwo is doing is because he “was not a cruel man.
He simply was an out of place person in the wrong community for him. Dick Prosser went crazy because of his constant hatred of being not equal to his counterparts around him. He was very obedient at the beginning of the story, but as the story progresses he begins to slowly break down until he goes crazy. The scene where the children find the gun shows that Dick has premeditated thoughts about taking the action he does. The readers of the story will never really know why he went crazy, but the best explanation is that buildup of negative emotion in
Claiming that he never truly did love her and proving that her father was right about him, “You should not have believ’d me, for virtue cannot/ so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it/ i lov’d you not.” (3.1.117-19) Hamlet’s motives for doing this could be to keep Ophelia out of everything and to not bring her anymore pain if anything was to happen to him as he went through with his plans. It could also be that he is still acting out as the anger/sadden son and that he needs to keep up with the act of seeming crazy to the onlookers. This action also connects to multiple other hasty and rash doings by hamlet that in a way is cutting of ties to his “old life” before he was visited by his father’s ghost and that thinking to himself, that if he’s going to succeed after everything he’s already done, he’ll need to cut ties to anybody that he could at one point had attachments to. There are hints in the line that Hamlet says to Ophelia after saying they need to make themselves clean of this relationship and cut all ties they had with each other from the past. At the same time saying that they shall “relish” in the memories which mean bring great joy to themselves thinking about how much
His downfall can be foreshadowed throughout the play, and one of the most significant reasons is because of his anger and aggression. Sometimes people say comments that they do not mean due to anger, but that is no excuse for Creon. He takes it to a whole new level that causes most to be afraid of him. Which in a way, leads to him believing that his decisions are right, due to no one standing up to him. This is clearly shown when the Sentry indicates, "I didn 't do it.
