‘ I'm here to make sure that my son never causes problems again.’ He turned and glared at Cole” (40). Mr. Matthews doesn’t even care about Cole; all he wants is to get out of this mess. Mr. Matthews doesn’t care about anyone except himself and the anger that controls him now will control him forever because he doesn’t care to change and mostly doesn’t want
A few seconds later, after silence had filled the courtroom, I spoke up and ordered Tom to answer. He later said that Mayella hugged and kissed him, and then left the house immediately because Mr. Ewell was coming back home. I pulled the cigarette from out of my mouth, one-third of it was already gone. I actually wanted to believe Tom, he seemed to take things seriously, rather than Mr. Ewell, who acted as if the whole trial did not matter, as if it was some big joke to him. A few minutes later, Mr. Gilmer began to question Tom.
While doing this, his brother was there helping him the whole time. The one reason Doodle’s brother decided to help was because he was ashamed that his brother could not do anything. Emotions changed the narrator and made him feel something that lead to an opportunity. That opportunity was helping Doodle be normal and it changed him and his family’s emotions for the better. Waiting for the worst to happen will not get anyone anywhere.
Loneliness compels oneself to feel forgotten, and Curley does not want to feel forgotten. The way he is so violent is not a fault of his own, he never had anyone to tell him he is not required to be perfect. Conversely, now that people are around, he does not want to show his childhood loneliness. He tries to
Swift did not believe in what he was saying, he only wanted to catch the people attention on problems he never clearly states. King’s uses ethos in ways that are easy to point out and seems to be his technique all the way through his letter. Martin Luther King Jr. mentions his own kids and their personal experiences, along with his experiences to show that he knows what he is talking about because he has in fact experienced all the injustices. King is also calm which appeals to his calm nature and showing no harm with fighting for civil rights and equality with the use of nonviolence which he addresses in his letter (In any nonviolent Campaign there are four basic steps…)(1).
He was too scared to do anything, as he never fought in a war before. This quote is important to the book because, Henry defines himself as a young boy that wants to be a man but runs away in battle. He would rather bleed and bleed, instead of not doing anything. I would agree and disagree with this quote. I agree because you are helping the army by at least doing
Sir Gawain’s determination to stick to his word redeemed himself in front of the lord, otherwise it never would have happened. Even when Gawain returns to the Round Table, he passes on the word of his fault and becomes a symbol for all his comrades. Because of Sir Gawain’s mistakes, the knights learned to not fall on the path he had
Because people rarely self reflect, they would not change or improve a bad morality. Heinrich Himmler was sympathetic to his victims, yet he was a moral man and followed what he was told would do good for the world. Jonathan Edwards failed to realize his morals were bad and continued to believe them until his death. While Wilfred Owen completely got rid of his morals and proceeded to write poems about the horrors of war. Because people can recognize live by horrible morals, it does not necessarily mean change will happen.
If we forget, this kind of crime could happen again. My parents taught me never to judge others based on whom they love, what color their skin is, or their religion. Why make life miserable for someone when you could be using your energy for good? We don 't need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful. When you hear people making hateful comments, stand up to them.
The tears ran down my face, my neck, wetting the top of my blouse. My hiccups overwhelmed me. I felt like my lungs would burst. I cannot say how long I sat and drowned in my own sorrow, sorrow for a life abused and used, for wasting my love, my emotions on a worthless man. No matter how Tommy’s past had been painful, he had no right to punish me for his parents’ neglect.
