On the other hand, Elie finds out that even though he believes his father is useless, he should still stand by him and help him along the journey. Both of these examples are showing how valuable you parents and family are even when times get hard and
It was almost as if they had left their strength with him, to help him on his journey.” Another example is “ So he had to shake the fear of to continue the journey” These examples prove that Salva was determined because he knew that his family would want him to make the trip.
Although, I’ve performed well enough to succeed at many group projects. However, like the Natives, sometimes when they feel like the world was against them, their family are suppose to be the foundation, but the parents have issues and sometimes don’t provide the needed support. Above all, their secret is to never giving up and I feel the same as I have continued to strive at Belmont to complete my AET degree. They have also learned how to accept themselves and know they will change. I’ve also learned to love my family as I am away from home and genuinely listen to them as I see the Lakotas doing the same because they always listen to their elders or grandparents.
Still, before he goes through with it, he forces Circe to “swear the oath” that she would “never do [his crew] harm” (10.380-385). So he is loyal to his crew because he would not do this with anyone else because he wants to be loyal to his wife and does not want to cheat on her when he is trying to get back home to see her. Then when Odysseus comes back onto Circe’s Island and wants to get back home to Ithaca, he is willing to listen to her, “must bind me with tight chafing ropes so I cannot move a muscle” because he wants to get home and needs to be safe while doing it and from the island commanding you to set me free”(12.170-180). By him asking questions he now knows the best way to go to keep his crew in safety which can really help his crew and will make sure it will be a safe and smooth ride. Even when some situations may come up, he will do anything to save his crew, even if that means going to
Abner expects his son to stand wholeheartedly by his actions, right or wrong. He assumes that a blood relation entitles him to a lifetime of support, disregarding what his young son may be experiencing. In “Barn Burning” William Faulkner states, “he aims for
The overall idea is love, the opinion that one may have is that one should always have love for someone to be happy and the 3 literary elements that may support one’s topic and opinion is symbols, setting, and characterization. First, symbols in “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto supports the theme that one shouldn’t take anger out on the people they love because something could happen at any time and they will regret what they said. The symbol “garden hose” shows that Maria is upset with her father for not wanting her to stay home. She takes anger out on her father, but she realizes after they leave there has been a horrible accident and so she starts to regret not saying goodbye to her father. She know longer knows if they are safe, so she starts to worry.
He tells her that “I don’t want you to do anything that you don’t want to do.” Even though he already knows that her mind is set on keeping the baby, he says things like that to make her feel bad. He wants her to have the procedure and he knows that she is willing to do anything to keep him from leaving and keep him
According to “Hrothgar’s Sermon”, “Beowulf, my friend, your fame has gone far and wide, you are known everywhere” (McArthur). Beowulf's reasoning for coming to the land is not fame, he came to keep his father's promise, and that is what every heroic leader should do. Knowing you have a loyal leader gives you more courage to do what they believe is the right choice. According to Loughman, “His comrades willingly go with him because of their confidence in his ability to lead them and to achieve their objectives” (Loughman). Beowulf never let his army down, he gave them assurance by coming to their land and having the courage that they will defeat
The willingness to sacrifice for their children and the dedication for a better future. From my one and only brother I learned the value of loyalty. The need to fulfill our duties as a son/daughter, as a sibling, as a friend or as a partner. For instance, his duty as a son in our family is to take care of my parents (even after marriage) and this is the reason why he stayed in Aruba and gave me the opportunity to study abroad. From my best friend, Yvonne, I learned the value of honesty.
Living in hope, with our beliefs, and with little expectation of others is the way forward. My parents, simple and honest human beings, have high expectations of me, wishing that I too, like them, grew up to be an honorable person. Martin Luther King’s life inspires the determined and I agree that to give up on life or stop is deplorable. Irrespective of the hurdles, to push ahead with all one’s might is the only way to succeed. Living this philosophy, my father, a genuine rags to riches story, altered my life, leading by example and encouraging me to follow the path of righteousness.
Nayir is a main character from the novel Finding Nouf, written by Zoe Ferraris. His full name is Nayir ibn Suleiman ash-Shaeqi (84). The book didn’t seem to mention Nayir’s age but I imagine he is in his early twenties. He is a large man and people say he looks like a Bedouin, but he is actually a Palestinian (29 - 30). Nayir’s profession is as a desert guide for many wealthy families, such as the Shrawis (3).
Malala Yousafzai’s book,“ I Am Malala,” has illustrated her struggle for educational equality around the world. She inspired millions of people and was able to become an international symbol of a peaceful protest. The rhetorical strategies used in Yousafzai’s book and speeches helped her developed a strong argument for girls educational rights and equality. Yousafzai conveys her message by writing what she wants to tell the public in her book. For example, the author stated,“ The Taliban want to turn the girls of Pakistan into identical, lifeless dolls”(Yousafzai, pg. 75).
It is evident that life is a constant battle, is regularly unjust and appalling, but if one can endure through these things there is truth, power and beauty that gives oneself a true meaning for their existence. Putting others before oneself can be a difficult sacrifice, but it builds the strength of character. Different characters in “A Thousand Splendid Suns” by Khaled Hosseini demonstrate such selflessness, as well as perseverance and strength. To begin with, Mariam is one character who demonstrates most if not all of these character traits, especially selflessness. She willingly makes major sacrifices for Laila and her children, as well as taking responsibility for their abusive husband, Rasheed’s death despite knowing that she will be punished.
