He would have to switch his glasses around so his other eye could adjust and see, which would result in him slowing down and not being able to concentrate.

He is constantly trying to ingratiate himself with others and is repeatedly seen to be prying into the business of others, which ironically leads to his demise. He deems it acceptable to spy on and spread lies about his son, reasoning "Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth: and thus do we of wisdom and of reach, with windlasses and with assays of bias, by indirections find directions out". He also doesn 't see anything wrong with using his daughter to gain information about Hamlet, with his plan "At such a time I 'll loose my daughter to him.

George is basically Lennie’s caregiver because he is constantly reminding him what was said, and what to do in trouble, so Lennie has an advantage in the relationship over George.

That wasn’t so damn much fun after a while.’ “ (40) George in the beginning would exploit Lennie’s slowness by telling him to do things that were dangerous. After time passed, George stopped having fun with it because it was a bittersweet realisation that Lennie would always be easily
Shakespeare gives Mercutio a childlike characterization, making him appear like he is stubborn and does not care if he gets in trouble or not. Although, the consequences might be death, since they were threatened by Prince in the previous scene if they started another brawl. Shakespeare characterizes Mercutio as very childlike and violent through the use of tone and conflict, in Act 3 Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare makes Mercutio seem like free spirited person, not knowing what to expect out of him next. With this in mind, the way Mercutio expresses himself tells it all.

We’ll give you a fancier slingshot to shoot!” The author is trying to show that everything that happens is the others fault and is making fun of it by saying that he gets a better weapon and a better suit .Then he will win but he never actually used the weapons. The book states “Grandpa leapt up that Wall with a lopulous leap and he cleared his harse throat with a bopulous beep. He screamed, “Here’s the end of that terrible town full of Zooks who eat bread with the butter side down!” This was written to show how over exaggerated the Cold War was.They fought over who was right and each side wanted to get rid of the other
When realizing the kids are affected at such a young age, Holden soon starts to lose his mind. He mentions, “I kept picturing myself catching him [graffiti writer] at it,...how I'd smash his head on the stone steps till he was...goddam dead and bloody...I wouldn't have the guts to do it” (Salinger 108). While this is not Holden’s first paroxysm, Holden still shows the purity of his mind by not being able to let something as little as this obscure graffiti. While the writing is unpleasant to whoever reads it, many kids would never take it as seriously as Holden. To end his thought, Holden says he would never have the guts to do it, which is also true due to Holden still grasping onto childlike
“You’re Beowulf, are you – the same boastful fool who fought a swimming match with Brecca and lost” said Unferth within lines 239-24. Beowulf knew that he could handle the demon, but Unferth was furious because he felt as if the Danes people and himself, could fight their own battles. He felt as if it made his people look bad, because they needed help from an outside hero.
