“As awful as he could be, I always knew he loved me in a way no one else ever had” (Walls 279). She had to find the redeeming quality of her father, Rex and love him for that because he always loved her in an indescribable way. Loving her father at his worst, meant crying and being upset when he resulted back to drinking, abused her mother, and acted like a very mean person. One of the greatest examples of forgiveness in The Glass Castle, was when Jeannette wanted her father to stop drinking. She cared about him enough, to want him to stay in the world alcohol-free.
However at the end she does develop sympathy for the misfit for all the punishment and hardship he has been through. She repeats over and over again "You 've got good blood! I know you wouldn 't shoot a lady! I know you come from nice people! Pray!
It is contradictory, confusing, wrong, and sometimes fake. Creon claims his ideas and makes it clear that the state is his first priority; however, his pride clouds the true definition of state to him. Antigone rambles on about her faith to her dead family and the gods, but does not appreciate her sister as much as her dead relatives. Haimon makes it obvious that he is obedient of his father, but he truthfully is devoted to his love for Antigone. Not everything that makes itself obvious is true in life, and this goes the same for something as simple as the concept of loyalty, faith, and
Sometimes the distaste and hate will lead people have the most powerful passion to gain a successful life.

These people would be wrong because towards the end of Act IV, John died for his wife, and that is being very loyal. For example, in The Crucible John is seen as loyal because he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get rid of Abigail, and break up the relationship between John and Abigail. Proctor says, “...” This makes John loyal because obviously he cares about his marriage, and he does not want some little girl ruining that. He feels that maybe if he shows Elizabeth that he does not care for Abigail anymore, does not want anything to do with her, and is completely done with her he could gain her trust back.
He was willing to chaperone the most highly wanted people in the country, a risk that, in the end, cost him his life. He was under no obligation to drive the sisters, and yet he did so anyways. The courage he showed was tremendous, and his brave risk should have been
Because of this, she’s expected to love him no matter what. The reasons stated within the passage would make no sense to any ordinary person, and would not be recognized as reasons to love someone. “She loved him for the way he sat loosely in a chair, for the way he came in a door, or moved slowly across the room with long strides. She loved the intent, far look in his eyes when they rested on her, the funny shape of the mouth”(pg 2). In order to justify her servitude to him, she unconsciously attempted to look for valid reasons to love him, which didn’t exist, which resulted in these inadequate

A very precise word choice keeps the reader’s imagination from being too broad while reading. Anne Bradstreet uses good word choice in “My Dear and Loving Husband” with the “Thy love is such I can no way repay.” (line 15, page 116). Her words mean that she can never thank her husband because he has loved he so much. Jonathan Edwards also uses a precise word choice in “Sinners in the Hands of Angry God”.
You wanted it like that. You and Papa have done me a great wrong. It’s because of you I’ve made nothing of my life”.

That stunted her development as an adult and as a human being.

While most everyone can argue that it is important to stick to your beliefs, this becomes a problem when beliefs begin to hurt others. Reverend Hale, from The Crucible, makes the following statement, “Cleave no faith, where faith brings blood”. Reverend Hale is trying to get across that one should not stay attached to a belief if the belief harms others. This theme also applies in other literary classics such as A Tale of Two Cities, To Kill A Mockingbird, and Romeo and Juliet.
