Stanley starts being more confident in himself “No one liked him, and the truth was, he didn’t especially like himself.”(Sachar, 186) Stanley now likes himself more than before. Stanley is confident so he talks right back to the warden “they ran out here and fell into the lizard’s nest, I don’t know what they were thinking. That’s not true! Stanley said.” (Sachar, 214) Stanley stands up even though the warden doesn’t like people talking back to her. Stanley stands up again to the warden “open the suitcase Stanley!
Thoreau was thought of as cold and many people disagreed with his thoughts, but this is did not stop him from writing. McCandless and Thoreau are criticized very often and because of this, they share some similarities and some differences. Chris went into the wild not prepared at all, but Henry, however, was very prepared. Both men had similar thoughts on money and material things. They both disliked how money made people act.
One of my personal favorite of Paul’s sayings is “if she’s old enough to bleed, she’s old enough to breed,” which might I add, is true. My second favorite was Paul’s way of helping his father cope, with a bucket full of candy. Sedaris includes a quote from his brother- “When sh*t brings you down, jus say ‘f*ck it,’ and eat yourself some mother*cking candy.” Truly words to live by. Like mentioned before, Sedaris’ tone adds to the funny aspect, he develops a neutral yet direct, straightforward tone, throughout “You Can’t Kill the Rooster,” that mixed with his brother’s ill-mannered vocabulary, truly captivates his audience. To add, Sedaris’ persona was much like his tone, was direct, so I found myself more tempted to write about his brother’s persona, which in my opinion was much more emphasized.
I fully agree that humor is affected by one’s background and race. As an Asian, I feel I always react differently compared to Americans when someone say a jokes. I found that I always think a joke is not funny at all while my American friends laugh loudly and ask me why it’s not funny. I believe it’s related to cultures. We grew up in different countries and the types of education.
For example “He was polite, friendly, well-groomed… he seemed extremely intelligent, I thought he was too nice a kid to be living by that hot spring with those nudist and drunks and dope smokers.” (Franz pg.51). Franz had asked Chris to be his grandson but Chris rejected him in the nicest way possible. But still Franz took Chris’s advice about doing something bigger with his life. Franz said “when Alex left for Alaska… I prayed. I asked God to keep his finger on the shoulder of that one; I told him that boy was special.
For example, on page 299, “I felt sick inside as I looked at his dull, vacuous smile, the wide bright eyes of a child, uncertain but easy to please. And I had been laughing at him too. Suddenly, I was furious at myself and all those who were laughing at him.” Here, Charlie was realizing that people were mean and rude to people who weren’t like them. That people looked down to people who were different than them or not as smart. Although, if Charlie did not have the surgery, he would not have had the experience of becoming super smart.
It sounded exciting.it didn't sound like a bad thing. Not really” (1) This quote from Coraline tell us that Coraline is a little bit nervous about what she will find in the other flat. I am going to analyze this quote and the fact that without courage the novella would not be the story it is. See the courage in the book keeps it alive if Coraline collapsed with fear and didn't go on she wouldn't of saved her parents and the other mother would of tricked more kids to their doom. But because Coraline fought back against Coraline and the other mother, she had no fear of school and would have a great deal of confidence.
For example, he told me to go to a migration office to ask them if they can mention any former immigrant so we could ask he/she very detailed questions. He said it will be helpful if we could interview someone. To me I liked his idea but I told him I can 't do it because I 'm a shy person and I told him your a great fit for this job do it. He replied no way he will do such a thing he will never violates someone 's privacy! I was shocked that he asked me to do so but he was unwilling to do it
“Not burdened by [Ivan’s] trouble” (76), Tolstoy starkly contrasts Gerasim’s sincerity with Ivan’s daughter Liza’s resentment of Ivan’s suffering since it “interfered with her happiness” (81). The ability to empathize and concern oneself with others’ affairs is suppressed by Liza and the others’ self-absorption. Ivan in his earlier days is able to separate personal and official relations, “excluding all that was raw, vital” (58), “like a virtuoso” (58). Tolstoy’s matter-of-fact tone when stating factual information that “two of the children died” (53) further supports Ivan’s lack of compassion in his earlier days. It is his intimate encounters with death that prompt him to yearn for human relationships, making him more receptive towards Gerasim’s genuine feelings.
In the beginning of The Great Gatsby, Daisy was in love with Gatsby but when Gatsby left to go into the military and she met Tom during his absence. 4.
