Say he will be spared!” (pg. 704) Since Scrooge said this it foreshadows he would see the point and happiness of family. A good family will bring happiness.

Scrooge realizes how cruel he is and when the Cratchit’s toast Scrooge he reacted by saying, “Thank you Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Cratchit, too.
Sweeney Todd fits the tragic hero archetype, due to him living a twisted life with a grim attitude, but a woman by the name of Mrs. Lovett always thought of him as a superior man, and treated him sympathetically, proven by the song she sings, “But a seaside wedding could be devised, Me rumpled bedding legitimized, Me eyelids I’ll flutter, I'll turn into butter, The moment I mutter I do.” This lyrics set came from the song “By The Sea,” where Mrs. Lovett sings about her dream life with her love Sweeney Todd. These lyrics show that she puts him on a pedestal even when he is a terrible man. In order for Sweeney Todd to be considered a tragic hero, he must also be someone of a high place. Sweeney Todd matches that description, because in the song "The Contest" it shows Sweeney Todd beating a shaving contest against one of the best barbers in the world, who shaves kings and lords from all over. This ends up gaining him new customers of high social positions, making him a high-class
This quote foreshadows when Athena cloaks him into a beggar, not only was it too hide his identity from the suitors but it was also used to test the loyalty of his wife and see if the suitors had gotten to her. Another piece of wisdom Odysseus gains is his self control. When Odysseus is turned into the beggar In the Approaching Inmost Cave he shows self control when he gets back to his homeland of Ithaca and doesn’t march to his home and announce he is home. Instead he shows
Giving Brent hope and confidence, and showing him that all actions have consequences whether they be big or small; good or bad everything we do impacts someone else. ‘“People are not all Hitler, kindelah. People are very good also, like the one who made this wind toy to give happiness to everyone who pass. … When the bad memories came back in my head, here I walked to remind myself of this.’” (pg 114) This passage shows that we are meant to forgive ourselves or others no matter what horrible things have happened. And once we forgive we learn to see the beauty in our lives rather than the struggles and pain that we have gone through.
Throughout his play Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond Rostand builds and interweaves his theme of appearance versus reality. By having a positive moral tone towards this theme, Rostand shows that he supports this theme as a quality that his readers should consider in their own lives. For this reason, this theme should be traced throughout the entire the play and expounded upon as much as possible. In Act I, Cyrano exemplifies an appearance of wealth when he tosses the bag of money to the theater manager to repay the spectators. To their amazement, the reader and Le Bret soon discover that Cryano had actually thrown away his entire paternal inheritance in one act.
Anne Bradstreet’s ardent love poem to her husband are so unbolted to her audience. She uses figurative language through personification, repetition metaphors and tone. Her loving tribute to her husband is in a sincere, effortless, and passionate way. This poem can be expound in many different ways and levels. In Bradstreet’s “to my dear and loving husband” there is a lot of money; not fifties and twenties , or even hundred dollar bills, but things that are good as cash.

The first mention of love is in “The Things They Carried,” when Lieutenant Jimmy Cross’ strong infatuation with Martha is revealed. His attitude seems innocent enough as he “want[s] Martha to love him as he loved her” (1). The reciprocity of this pure emotion, illustrated by the repetition of “love,” is quickly shot down as the officer is portrayed as obsessed with Martha’s rejection of him rather than simply in love. One of the most striking moments that interweaves the violent nature of war with his memories of the girl is presented in his desire to “carr[y] her up the stairs to her room and t[ie] her to the bed and [touch] that left knee all night long” (4). The run-on structure of the sentence conveys the unhealthy excitement of a man who plays this moment over and over again in his mind.
This goes to show that love was only ever looked at as internal connection. In Jonson 's couplet “His Excuse for Loving” love is expressed as an apostrophe which heightens the aspect of love and how someone’s physical beauty is what many admire at first, however it is always the connection of two people 's personality that is true love, and that love will forever keep one 's mind young as they grow old. This is shown in the poem when the speaker says: “She shall make the old man young,/Keep the middle age at stay,” (Jonson, 20-21). This stanza suggests that the connection two people have is what makes a relationship last so long. Eventually physically beauty will be overlooked and when one 's true nature comes out it will determine if ones love was just lust or in fact true love.
A Genuine Value In William Maxwell’s TLWB, the author emphasizes the calmness of a wealthy couple toward meeting with a breakin by burglars. On the other hand, the story of D.H. Lawrence’s TRHW is about a boy who sacrifices himself because of going mad to fill his greedy mother’s desire of getting luck. Although these stories are completely differed in the story, it is common that both of the authors attempt to show the theme of gaining something ideal by losing something valuable. It can be also said in our actual lives because humans are destined to run up against this kind of wall because love and materialism are difficult to be incompatible, greed takes away our real happiness, and innocence often brings personal sacrifice. Love is far apart from materialism.
