Because of his lack of social skill, Piggy doesn’t have much of a voice in the group and relies on the conch to have a say in discussions. A large part of Piggy’s character is his lack of self esteem, supported by his comment, “I don’t care what they call me...So long they don’t call me what they used to call me at school”,(Golding 8). Piggy shows that he has low self confidence, which may be why he is submissive in actions of the boys.. Piggy’s
Jane’s perception is emphasized by a conversation between Bessie and Abbott she randomly overhears, after she was locked into the red-room. They both share the opinion that if Jane were “a nice, pretty child, one might compassionate her” and that “a beauty like Miss Georgiana would be more moving in the same condition” (31). This statement clearly accentuates the utmost importance of outer appearances and most of all beauty at the time. It displays that compassion and affection were hard to receive when you were not pretty. The reader, on the other hand, probably pities Jane after her horrible experience in the red-room, therefore this emphasize on beauty has to be seen in a critical way.

If Steve Jobs would have depended on his luck he would have not earned his fame and reputation like he had. Steve Jobs earned his fame because he worked hard. He didn’t have a dorm room, so he slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, he returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and he would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. This is what a leader needs; hard work. The concept I like is that “the real role of the leader is to figure out how you make diverse people and elements work together (p.100).
Pavla Chudějová in “Exploring the women’s experience” states that since Cordelia cannot compare to her attractive and talented older sisters, she makes great effort to keep up appearances in fear of being considered “disappointing” (Cat’s Eye 73). As Cordelia cannot adjust to the social expectations required in her family and in attempt to liberate herself from the constant surveillance performed over her, she refocuses her gaze to Elaine. Elaine presents an easy outlet for Cordelia’s frustrations because she is completely unaware of gender restrictions (43-44). As noted earlier, two events demonstrate Cordelia’s cruel treatment of Elaine. The first incident occurs when she digs a hole in her backyard and the three girls bury Elaine alive in it.

Another example of gender discrimination, or sexism, would be after the jury declares Tom Robinson guilty. Jem questions on why good people,“like us and Miss Maudie, don’t serve the jury” Atticus explains that Miss Maudie can’t serve because she is a woman. He doesn’t go into detail on to why a woman can’t work the jury, simply because in this time period, just saying “Because she is a woman was enough explanation.” Earlier in the courtroom, the women were asked to leave due to the
A man greeted us with three missing fingers and hands stained lead grey. He instructed our group in the lesson. I was too young to take part in the experience, so I just watched the “older” people in my family attempt to make glass that would e nothing compared to the amazing artists whom we saw before. By the time we had finished and taken a water taxi home, it was night time. From our long walking day and glass experience, we were all starving.

Rikki Tikki is an audacious and inquisitive character in this story who often stands up to Nag and Nagaina. Nagaina is known for being villainous and gullible because she believed Darzee’s wife would come near her if she was hurt. Lastly, Kipling’s use of personification really brings the story alive, especially the feud between Rikki-tikki, Nag, and Nagaina. In the end, being too audacious can endanger you and the people you love because you don’t fully grasp the idea of your consequences until you’ve made your mistakes. Those mistakes can affect not only you but all the people around
