This stays the same when Roark is building for a customer. He will not change the building because they do not
He has learned to “trust in character again as the eternally valuable element” (Fitzgerald 678), and he has faith in his reformed character. Charlie knows that he has much to offer Honoria: a home, love, and values. He is disheartened, but in his new power, he will not slip up and return to the bad habits of his past. Now all he can offer Honoria material things of which he knows how diminutive of worth there is in the possessions that affluence can buy. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Babylon Revisited” characters demonstrate several themes through the story, theme such as It is never too late to change, love is blind, money can’t buy happiness, what it profit a man to lose his soul and gain the world, only you can change your life.
The theme wants us to take pride in the idea that we should defend our morals at all costs and believe whole heartedly in what we know is right while not letting anyone mistreat us is a key aspect of this piece. Cahan hints on not letting oneself be intimidated by inexcusable behavior in an attempt to keep things smooth and to keep from causing any issues. In the story he presents the need for personal pride very clearly. It grabs the reader at the heart, showing how important it is for a person to stand up for what they believe in, and in this case to not allow oneself to be crushed in the name of a paycheck. A persons ideals reach beyond the needs of the flesh, and those who have been there when it is hard, unwilling to sacrifice their morals to the enemy have been idolized.

Some people may not let you gain the respect back after you lost it.

He showed Dorigen actually having a strong will of her own and not just blindly following the words of others in contrast to the character Constance who was the protagonist in the Man of Law’s Tale. Dorigen not only proves herself to be of strong character and morale but she also chooses what is right and what is honorable. Her husband, Arviragus, also displayed chivalry in how he chose to protect his wife’s dignity. The squire Aurelius did not disillusion himself into thinking that he was Dorigen’s love and because of that, he decided to do what was good and to what was right. The Franklin presents several themes throughout the tale such as good prevailing over evil and the power of love but he stresses the moral of keeping true to one’s self and being truthful.
Lastly, I believe that lying is a sin. Because of this, I have remained honest throughout my life. This is a good moral to have in general, but especially when having the desire to attend a service academy.

The point is that one should constantly be proud of who he/she is and not try to hide it. One should be proud of being a good friend, be proud of who he/she is, be proud of oneself every time he/she makes a good decision, be proud of all the small things one has accomplished, be proud of one’s unique strengths, and do not leave it to another person to make one feel like ‘he/his is enough’; leave it to oneself. Also, there are advantages to this. By being proud of who one is, one’s confidence skyrockets, one becomes honest and likeable. Life becomes worth living, and nearly stress-free.
Cacambo lack of philosophy allows him to avoided many of the misfortunes the other characters face. Cacambo’s character provides a sense of hope for Candide because he remains loyal regardless of the situation. An example of this loyalty can be seen when Candide gives him an abundance of jewels to buy Cunegonde freedom from the governor of Buenos Aires. Cacambo could have taken all the jewels and left, but he goes through with his promise and frees Cunegonde. Cacambo’s loyalty is significant because it opens Candide’s eyes to the true meaning of life.
The theme applies to our lives in our society because we shouldn’t be afraid when it comes to the point where you need to make a difference or save lives by risking your own life considering that there are people who died with honor or became amazing heroes from doing this and they are not afraid since they know that they are doing the right thing like protecting the people who need their help. This story motivated me to not be afraid to risk your for others and to not be a bystander to violence. I would totally recommend this book to others who are interested in historical fiction, adventure stories about sailing, and

That he wouldn’t do any actions to harm anyone in which is seen when he was having second thoughts of leaving his wife, Faith for the night by the look of her troubled face.

In the essays “Pride” by Dagoberto Gilb and “Pride and Humility” by Thomas A. Tarrants, III, D.Min., The authors discuss the same topic but they have a different conclusion. In “Pride,” Gilb conclude that we are all shaped by a strong sense of pride, so we should still be proud of ourself.

Although both authors addressed the same topic in their essay writing and both use their methods to explore the forms of pride, they do so by using viewpoints and different attitudes toward pride.
