George Washington, Winston Churchill, and finally Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. These men have been revered to give hope to those who needed it. George Washington rose up against the British and made America what it is today, Winston Churchill stood against the invading German air force and won the Battle of Britain. These men had only gotten their victories through violence and many men died for their causes. Dr. King got what he wanted through peace and didn’t even resort to violence.
Nathaniel Hawthorne, one of the first great American writers and author of The Scarlet Letter, is credited with saying that “families are always rising and falling in America.” He is saying that families have ups and downs all throughout their lives. This quote applies to The Scarlet Letter on a smaller scale in the sense that people are always rising and falling in Puritan Society. The rises and falls are often shaped by outside influences and can be internalized. Dimmesdale, for instance, faces many falls, not by the public, but by his own emotions.
Action and Reaction Our world, and lives, are full of trials and tribulations. Its our choices, actions, or lack thereof when facing these difficulties that influence the direction of our lives. Rene Denfeld explores this wonderfully in her novel The Enchanted. Her characters all face trials, of varying degrees of intensity, that not only shape them as people, but also, the direction of their lives. She delves into this process thoroughly through her character of the white-haired boy.
For everything in life there is a consequence. Growing up we learn how those consequences can vary. These consequences can start very small, starting as a child we learn not to touch the stove or else we might get burned, or to respect our parents otherwise we would get a timeout where we would have to think about our actions that got us the punishment. Whatever punishment it was, they all had one thing in common. And that thing is the fact that we learned from our mistakes.
Many people depend upon their vehicles to get them around. Unfortunately, when you combine alcohol and driving, sometimes the result is the loss of driving privileges for a time. The amount of time you actually lose your driving privileges in many cases depends upon the extent of the DWI as well as the number of previous alcohol-related convictions. In some cases, the person will be issued a B-Card, which is a restricted license, before being allowed to return to driving.
All actions are influenced. Whether it's you working harder to make someone proud, or doing something to make someone angry. There is always an outside influence. I believe that the Capulet and Montague family is this outside influence that caused Romeo and Juliet to end their lives. They had driven the kids to this horrible solution with their constant rivalry, endless pressure to be perfect, and their quickness to judge.
In life you have to live with the consequences of the decisions that you make. In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, John Proctor has to live with the consequences of his affair with Abigail Williams when he confesses it to the court publicly and he has to live with the consequences of what Elizabeth(his wife) does or says about the affair. Abigail Williams would have had to live with the consequences of her actions the night she and the other girls danced in the woods if she had confessed to doing witchcraft that night. The consequences of the people who did not confess to witchcraft, even though they were innocent, was that they were to be hanged. The play The Crucible takes place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692; it is about the Salem witch
People are responsible for the events that take place in their lives; making fate a scapegoat created by those who find the repercussions are less than favorable. This can be seen in the many lives of the characters of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, an initial comedy turned tragedy. Set in fair Verona, a conflicted prince must counterbalance quarrels between the two wealthiest families; the Montagues and the Capulets. The children of the two houses, Romeo and Juliet, live their lives apart from one another, meeting when Romeo encounters Juliet at the Capulet ball, and are instantly smitten with each other and are engaged in a matter of a few hours. Their marriage ends in disastrous suicides when all of their other plans fail, but this brings
The bulk part of this paper will focus on the three major Scottish thinkers from eighteenth and nineteenth century. The Scots who deployed the ‘Spontaneous Approach’ are Mandeville, Hume and Smith. The theory of spontaneous order brings together the most important aspects underlying the work of eighteenth century thinkers. It provides a valuable theoretical framework within which the thoughts of these thinkers can be analyzed. Crystals, the organization of neurons in your brain, the ecosystem of Amazon basin and the development of English languages are all the general examples of spontaneous order.
Reflected in many of the most important policy decisions of today is the philosophy of Utilitarianism. Utilitarianism is the moral idea that “what is right (or a duty) is whatever maximizes the total amount of net utility.” Utilitarianism, at the time of its introduction, was a revolutionary moral philosophy. This is because utilitarianism underscores the idea that the consequences of a person’s actions are the most morally significant. So it is not the agent’s well-being that is morally significant, but instead the maximum well-being of others In terms of public policy, politicians often use utilitarianism in the form of “cost-benefit analysis” in order to make decisions.
Psychological Identity In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1850 novel, ‘The Scarlet Letter’, Hawthorne demonstrates the physiological impact that others and our own person can make on us. He uses his psychological standpoint to make a character in power who comes to be psychosomatic and has a general phobia to conform to the pure society he thinks he knows; this unconscious motivation, eventually leads to his demise. But he also makes a character that is the opposite (In many different ways) to show the correlation effect that actions can have on one's self. The women fights and does not conform, she has to change the way she thinks and see many different things to compensate what is missing in her life, and what was taken from her.
