We have all been told at some point in our lives “be careful what you wish for”. This old man foretold ironic events to follow Alan if he purchased the love potion. It showed that women don 't really have much of a choice in relationships, if a man likes you, then you have to like him; even if that means getting put under a spell. Men think they want a women that can be controlled and monitored in everything they do. Men do not want a woman who have other dreams and ambitions other than being his loyal wife; but if the woman is around “too much” she is considered a nag.
He understands that the old waiter stays up and drinks because “he likes it”. Moreover, when the young waiter proclaims that “an old man is a nasty thing”, the old waiter does not disagree. However, he does defend the old man, pointing out how “he drinks without spilling” and notices the little dignity the old man has left. Whereas the young waiter is quick to dismiss the notion that the old man chooses to drink in their bar for a reason other than for the sake of drinking, the old waiter understands the significance of their bar. The “clean and pleasant café” is “well-lighted”; for those who are lonely, darkness only adds to their misery.
The book is filled with disgusting oats that I don’t care to read, and a hint of marshmallow, which come in the morals. He needs to stay in touch which encourages me to keep in touch with friends and family. He also shows that free time is important, because he has zero of it and it debilitates him. I know I like a lot of free
Fowler is menacing, straightforward, and is exceptionally full of hostility. Fowler seems to lack emotion, with his regular use of opium being a numbing solution, “Opium makes you quick-witted – perhaps only because it calms the nerves and stills the emotions. Nothing, not even death, seems so important.” (Greene 17) He has disturbing memories from the war, opium possibly soothes this distress. Fowler’s relationship with Phuong is strictly physical to the readers, but his vulnerability begins to show through towards the end of the novel. He is not one to form an opinion, and that easily aggravates those in his life, such as his wife.
The character in Diary of Anne Frank that was chosen to be written about is Peter Van Daan, with a mesmerizing type of personality. In the beginning, his personality shows how he is innocent, weak, and very lazy. Later on, Peter thinks he has a connection with Anne, but she thinks that he is a slob as well. Furthermore, he promises her he will never fight with her. It is important because it reveals how he is not the smoothest guy in the world, but he knows how to handle things you might think he can 't.
On the other hand it has slightly subdued his whimsical fascination with original thoughts. He displays this characteristic when he states that it would be fun, “if one didn’t have to think about happiness!” (118) Also on page 158, Mond talks about how the books are old so they do not matter, but when he is told that God does not change he states, “Men do, though.” By the end of the novel we can truly see just how separation from his passion, or home, has changed Mustapha. He became callous and less appreciative of curiosity. When the Savage acknowledges all of the terrible things that Mustapha is saying that the savage claims and the savage agrees, all he says is “You’re welcome” (163). This behavior is something that has been apparent, but reached its full potential after Mustapha’s separation from
Love does not happen right away. It needs to be built up and has to develop, similar to how a flower blooms. Being in love also leaves one’s heart exposed and unguarded, and open to the influences of their lover, something which Benedick in Much Ado about Nothing was worried of. Even though he does submit to the will of love in the end, he did possess somewhat of a point. In Much Ado about Nothing (Shakespeare) and Getting on in the World (Callaghan), both Hero and Jean subtly manipulate men for the purpose of love.
he even starts fantasizing about being a family man after talking with his more matured former gang member (Burgess, 202). A very interesting attribute of the last few chapters is that Alex’s use of nadsat drops in frequency when compared to him at the beginning of the book. This addressed indirectly in “Nadsat: The Argot and its implications in Anthony Burgess’s, A Clockwork Orange”. It says “That is not to say that the author is totally unconcerned with moral values. No doubt he deplores the actions of Alex as much as we do.
Dying in place of Darnay has finally given Carton some meaning to his life. Carton thinks to himself about “the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy” (Dickens 381). Happiness has finally came to Carton. Even though he wasn 't happy in life, he will be happy in death. There were many bad forces in the novel but good overcame it all.
"to make my compliments to you, my fellow-teachers of the great public, and likewise to say that I am right glad to see that Doctor Holmes is still in his prime and full of generous life" (Twain 3). Finally, I think Mark Twain was not as nice a person as he makes himself out to be in many of his books. He often says very mean things to nice people. As the old saying goes "don 't judge a book by it 's cover" don 't judge Mark by his books do some extra digging. Life was not easy for Twain but that does not change how you are supposed to treat people and be a kind person.
As Rodriguez explains “[Americans] prefer plainness in theology, in our food, in our rhetoric [...]” we despise stepping out of the social normality and our comfort zone. However, once “ The hero stumbles, falls, his clothes freeze to his body. [...] ‘[F]reezing was not so bad as people thought... the most comfortable and satisfying sleep he had ever known,’ ” (Rodriguez 148-149). With acceptance that no one can live up the social normalities and our fate is like the fallen hero, it become more comfortable to be in the excruciating temperatures such as hot or cold which are paradoxes yet the same: filled with outcasts. Individuals can express their diversity, than to compete to stay temperate.
Koichi is a very sweet boy, so he’s just up your alley! The two of you are very similar in personality, leading to a very wholesome, innocent relationship to bloom between you. The only time you two bicker is when you make fun of his height too much, but that’s easily solved with a small apology and a hug! He is very interested in hearing you speak German, and he’d try his hand at it, but excuse him if he’s bad at pronunciation - he’s trying his best! If you wanted to learn more about Japan, he wouldn’t be too confident in his abilities as a teacher, but with some reassurance, he’d gain confidence!
Some things Friar were helpful and some not so much, such as marrying the young, dumb, and in love kids. For Friar’s sake he was doing it because he thought it may heal the wounds between the families, although these were his intentions they didn’t seem to work as planned. “To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare, 411). The man of the church was also the one to be a pharmacist to Juliet and give her sleeping potion. “Take thou this vial, being then in bed, and this distilled liquor drink thou off; when presently through all thy veins shall run a cold and drowsy humor, for no pulse” ( Shakespeare, 453).
Before he dies on page 148, Johnny tells both Dally and Ponyboy, "Useless...fighting 's no good." Johnny is right. It really is useless. However, if the Soc and the greasers would express their feelings verbally instead of physically, death and injuries would decline dramatically. In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants.
