Another example of Daisy’s carelessness is when Gatsby, a man she says she loved, dies, and she does not attend his funeral or show any signs of grief. In essence, she cares so little about anything that she shows no feelings about the fact a person she loved getting murdered. Her gets perfectly stated by Nick: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made” (Fitzgerald 179). Daisy feels like that because she has so much money and is part of old money, no action can impact her. No matter what bad deed she does, people will fix it for her and she will face no
She solely lived her life listening to everyone else around her and did not think for herself and her benefit. She only lived to please her husband who had the “spirit of Satan” and care for her baby. Desiree’s didn 't even have the courage to stand up to her husband and tell him that was not black. Desiree only left the control of her husband because he told her to leave. Even when her husband clearly didn’t love her anymore, she still wished for him to change his mind so she could stay.
The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem). The hangman said he only had the chance to keep murdering people because nobody stood up and said something about it. It is ironic that the victim said nobody cried for me because when other people were getting hanged he didn’t say anything either. This leads to the bystander effect because the people of the town did not want to say anything since maybe someone else could have said
The judges knew that the witchcraft was a myth but didn’t do anything about it. Danforth and Hathorne often rejected logical facts and refused to head testimonies proving innocence because so many people were accused. After a while, it became clear to everyone in the town, including the judges, the accusations were false. These judges instead of revealing the truth they clung to their pride and ignored what was happening in front of them. If word got out that they sent several innocent people to their deaths their reputation would be ruined and they would be out of their jobs.
Nobody stands up for the accused directly in the entire play, even if they feel really guilty about all the people dying, they still did not step up and say something (Sundstrand). Near the end of play, both Hale and Parris are sick of executing, and they try to do whatever they can to make Proctor confess, even if it’s a half-hearted one, so they would not have to see any more of the tragedy and feel guilty for
It is implied that Meursault felt no grief when his mother died because Camus did not have a good relationship with his mother, especially after his father’s death. He failed multiple marriages, was denied from military enlistment, and lost his jobs. After these occurrences, Camus does not really feel any meaning to life. In the novel, Meursault normally feels indifferent toward events that the average person would have at least some emotion. These include his mother’s death and burial, possible marriage to Marie, friendship with
The man would have done anything and did anything he could so he could live the life he had always dreamed of being with Daisy.

All she really wanted was to have a friend. Curley made her miserable. No one would even try to stand up to Curley, and this made it impossible for Curley’s wife to have any friends. This changed when Lenny busted Curley’s hand. Curley’s wife unfortunately developed an interest in Lenny after that incident.
They played subservient roles to their men in order to make them look strong and heroic. Women in the Anglo-Saxon culture consumed no freedom and were to always favor and obey their so called lords (husband's). For example, in “The Wife's Lament”, the female speaker speaks in deep sadness because her husband had left their family and sailed away leaving her behind. After a certain period of time, her husband requests for her to move out of the country and into a new one with him. Leaving her friends behind, she once again felt depressed due to isolation of her friends and family.
