It states in the novel, “This woman was spoiling the ritual. The men were making too much noise, laughing, joking to cover her terrible accusing silence below. She made the empty rooms roar with accusation and shake down a fine dust of guilt that was sucked in their nostrils as they plunged about. It was neither cricket nor correct. Montag felt an immense irritation.

Shout out to those who are having it hard right now, I promise it 's only temporary-“Unknown.” Just because you and whoever are going through rough patch does not mean its gonna be like that forever nor does it mean its gonna be something that 's gonna last long. Just like in the story “hanging fire” the author picks a girl that is going through a hard time but she tries her hardest to push through it and try her best to get over it all alone. I feel like it would be hard to have to go through something a lone but when you keep your head held high and always look at the bright side then it 's easy i guess. Shes has nobody what so ever and she has to go through it all by herself and i mean yea for some people that 's really nothing but the other kinda seems to telling us she 's not very old.
Have you ever done something so hateful you regret it and wish you can take it back. In Romeo and Juliet, the destructive effect of irrational hatred becomes apparent when the Capulets and Montagues highly dislike each other and constantly fight which leads to Romeo and Juliet not being able to be happily married and eventually take their own lives. One example of irrational hatred is when montages and Capitalist constantly get in fights in the streets. For example “Do you bite your thumb at us sir? I do bite my thumb sir.”(1.1.45-52).
The narrator in "The Tell Tale Heart" denies being mad, reasoning "you fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you...should have seen how wisely I proceeded" (Poe 1). When the narrator goes from calm at the beginning, to violent and angry during the interrogation, it shows how unstable and how affected they are by their guilt. Grace is quite unstable as she is always switching moods and acting on impulse.
Many of Woolf’s characters are placed outside of society’s strict rules and thus classified as ‘unusual’ and a threat to the social system. Septimius, Peter, Mrs Kilman, Clarissa and Sally in their youth, and even minor characters such as the ‘old Irishwoman’ who wishes to toss flowers in front of the Prime Minister’s car, compromise the rigidity of society, with its condemnation of expression of the individual. Mental illness, sexuality, male emotion, and poverty all set characters against the social system. Throughout Mrs Dalloway, we often see these characters suffer great unhappiness from the intense pressure to conform to the social system. The rejected Mrs Kilman, with her severe religious zealotry and unspoken attraction to Elizabeth, feels she has ‘suffered so horribly’ and ‘the pleasure of eating…the only pure pleasure left to her’ to fill the void.
When considering the choice of whether or not students should get paid for good grades, the choice should definitely be no, students shouldn’t get paid for grades. One reason being that students should want to learn without always thinking they’re going to get money. Another reason is that students are remaining focused on money and not education when it should be the other way around. Though, there are many reasons as to why children shouldn’t get paid for grades. If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run.
Self-sabotaging is most often a subconscious behavior, and some of the worst perpetrators have absolutely no idea what they're doing. What is self-sabotage? Any behavior, attitude or talk, self-directed or external, that makes you an obstacle to your own goals. What does self-sabotage look like? It comes in many forms, but the common theme is a person who says they want one thing and lives as if they want another.
“The rage for revenge . . . always makes bad things worse.” This quote from “Revenge” encapsulates the main point that Dickens, the author, disputes throughout the novel, which is that revenge can never be good or beneficial. In Great Expectations, Miss Havisham, Magwitch, and Orlick use revenge as motivation, but they only cause harm to themselves and others in the end.
When some of the time, the colored folks are the ones who don’t know how to act. There is always going to be that one person who will ruin your day, just because you’re just you. Haters feel like they have to be better than you, and even if they are, they’re still going to hate. Just because they feel they have to compete with you, out do you, or just envy you. Janie was held back on a lot of her life just because she was trying to live her life for someone else, and she made a decision that her grandmother wanted her to do.
You would think that being different or standing out from the crowd is what everyone is trying to do, in reality it is the opposite. Now a day society wants to be like everyone else around them. People hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards, but deep down they wish they had the courage to do the same. According to Leopard Man’s statement “Conformity can be seen as the world’s most common, but dangerous psychological disorder,” why is that? It is because so many times people try so hard to be someone they truly don’t want to be, but they do it anyway to at least be seen as a “somebody.” In my opinion conformity will always appear negative, but is not necessarily.
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
