I think the focal point of the speech was him looking at his own morality. He was empathizing in his speech was that even though a great many people looked up to him and admire him he was not be idolized because he is just a man and like all men there will be a day when he will die and that it would take each and every one to continue to fight after he is gone. I with think he was giving hope to people hope that through his vision he saw that their goal would be achieved in the fight for equality and that they shouldn’t be discouraged with the challenges that they were currently facing because through their continues fight this will be

Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything. Not only did the gang prevent him from finishing his studies, but from overall becoming a high-class man; as Ponyboy had announced to the rest of his
Firstly, Nick’s opening narration is iconic, and maybe one of the best beginnings ever: “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since: Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” We see that Nick is gentle and never underestimate anyone, which makes him the only one to sympathize with Gatsby. Nick 's open-mindedness gives him a deeper perspective on the people around him and protects him from falling subject to the glitzy, superficial materialism of the 1920s. This iconic narration help us to increase our real life capacity for empathy. We can be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and view the world from their
All prisoner’s that are well off have adapted to camp life. They realize that in order to survive the situation they are in, they have to make the best out of it. Solzhenitsyn strongly illustrates this when Shukhov talks about writing to his family and says “there was as little sense in writing nowas in casting a stone in some bottomless pool. It sinks, and that’s the last you hear of it” (p 36). Shukhov has detached himself from his family and become indifferent, knowing that both parties will benefit as this detachment will allow them to concentrate on reality and treat it accordingly, even though they will miss
“You never really understand a persoon until you consider things from his point of view.... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” He is well-respected lawyer in the community and is respected for his fairness treatment to all the citizens in town.

Analyze the author’s treatment of Boo Radley.
Tom begins to change once he witnesses it. His anxiety and guilt about Muff Potter’s fate are clear in the scenes he tries to get Huck to reconsider their vow to secrecy. The decision he finally makes (the decision to tell the courtroom about how the murder really went) is independent by every implication, however. Tom decides to follow his conscience despite his devotion to his loyalty to Huck, his superstition, and his own personal safety. Before the courtroom, Muff Potter tells Tom and Huck “You’ve been mighty good to me boys-better’n anybody else in this town.

On Victor’s trial day, Mr. Kirwin dauntlessly “[charges] himself with every care of collecting witnesses, and arranging [Victor’s] defense” (134). On the day where the entire town desires a person to blame for Clerval’s death, in this case Victor, Mr. Kirwin obtains the valor to face the town in support of the adversary. Although Victor is essentially at the bottom of the food chain, the benevolent Mr. Kirwin sees him as an innocent human being and will not allow others’ opinions to conclude otherwise. Developed in kindness and selflessness, Kirwin upholds this command, that “Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy” (Komarnicki). Far along in his storytelling to the mariner Richard Walton, Victor asks, “‘To you first entering on life,
As Piggy attempts to hold a position of power, he constantly demonstrates that rules are pivotal to the well being of a society. He strongly agrees with Jack at the beginning of the story when he says, “We’ve got to have rules and obey them. After all, we’re not savages”(Golding 48). Still feeling the cap of civility, Piggy understands that without rules, they are no longer boys, but become savages. He tries to help Ralph teach the others this, but the other boys do not understand that if there are no rules, their society will fall.

Two character traits define Odysseus and shape his poor leadership style. The first trait is that he is a very arrogant person and this often puts him and his men in danger. Secondly, Odysseus can be deceitful and not fully communicate the facts of each situation. Odysseus was a weak leader and his lack of vision in not seeing the strength and possibilities in his men combined with his inability to effectively communicate to those around him ultimately led to his failure of not being able to safely deliver his men back to Ithaca. The story of the Cyclops in Homer 's The Odyssey illustrated how Odysseus '
