In William Golding 's Lord of the Flies, Jack 's ideas are more effective than Ralph 's. They are not the brightest, but they supply the littluns with gratification. Ralph 's plans would be better for older children because they are more logical and lead to the desired result in a more timely fashion. Hence, Ralph tries to dissolve the fear by telling the boys how irrational it is. He takes a more mature stance on these issues. Jack also knows that there is no beastie, but he uses their lack of knowledge to his advantage. He wants them to stay loyal and feel like they are needed in the tribe. Jack 's bravado helps keeps the littluns calm through fear. They need a higher being to look up to and be protected by. Also, they are too
These following quotations are examples of people having hope help them through the tough times. People hope that others are still alive even if they could be dead. Not long ago Elie and his father were just separated from his mother and sister. Now it was evening and they were laying in their cots, listening to Akiba Drumer, and the only they could think about at the moment was them. “Mother is still a young woman. She must be in a labor camp. And Tzipora, she is a big girl now. She too must be
In the Merrriam-Webster dictionary, hope is defined as; to cherish a desire with anticipation. However, those words don't convey the meaning deep enough, hope is more than that. Hope is a feeling deep in the gut, a motivating force, for some hope is everything. Hope must be stronger than any fear and it must have fight in it. Lina Vilkas, a fifteen year old Lithuanian, she fights for hope. In Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys a family is ripped apart by russian soldiers and sent to prison camps. The prison camps have the worst living conditions and the soldiers are brutal to anyone. Lina meets Andrius in the camps, a friend who helps her stay strong while she is imprisoned for 12 years and loses both parents and almost her brother. Lina finds her hope even in the darkest situations, because hope is bright and believing in a brighter future it isn't giving up because of fear. Ruta Sepetys theme of the power of hope on a survivor is expressed when a young girl loses everything, finds
A survivor’s eyes tell a story of regret and optimism. When someone has lived a full life, they tell a story of regret and optimism. They have lived through many stories of sadness, pain, hurt, fear, hope, and faith. Survivors have done things that they have regret, they have experienced things that will stick with them forever, and haunt them in their dreams. Survivors have lived through the worst but keep on pushing, because they know there is something better tomorrow. Optimism is what helps survivors survive. Optimism gets survivors through the times of regret, loss, sorrow, and fear. When one has optimism for the future it forces them to continue to survive, even when the pain, agony, and regret seem to
Hope can consist of staying positive even through the most calamitous of times, remembering some of your precious memories, and even waiting patiently for good outcomes. Having hope can help you overcome obstacles that you may have thought were unfeasible to surpass. There may be times where hope seems out of your grasps. Yo may even start feeling like there is no point in having hope, but a positive attitude can help a tremendous amount when handling conflict. Having something taken from your grasps makes you want to fight for it, but waiting patiently and having hope can also get the lost item back. Fear can leave you petrified, but hope is the greatest strength that you can possess and hope will always overpower
“Gray animals peering from electric caves, faces with gray colorless eyes, gray tongues and gray thoughts looking out through the numb flesh of the face” (Bradbury 132). The people in Fahrenheit 451 are exactly as the protagonist, Montag, describes them: gray, animal, dehumanized and lifeless. Ray Bradbury has built a society in which people spend their days mindlessly watching television. Violence, bullying and murder are common, especially coming from school children, who spend their school days watching even more television. Montag is a fireman who burns books and slowly comes to understand the dehumanized and meaningless state that his society is in. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 demonstrates how dehumanization can lead to a meaningless
H. L. Mencken wrote “the average man does not want to be free. He simply wants to be safe.” I agree with this quote because of the deeper meaning it has behind it. In today’s society, people do not seem to have ambitions or dreams that they want to pursue. A lot of people settle with a job that pays just enough to make a living or they do not go beyond their limits to get a higher education to be able to make more money. These people are overcome by fear. They are afraid to continue moving forward and taking risks.
Hope can mean many things, it can also be represented by different things. In the book Lord of the Flies hope is represented by the fire. It's a chance at getting off the island. “A fire! Make a fire!”(Golding 52). In this moment the boys realize that if they have a fire they have a chance at getting off the island. Hope in WWII would be the HIghway act of 1956. “Speedy safe transcontinental travel” (“The interstate” par. 1). Having better ways of getting to places, safer roads, and less traffic jams people are going to be able to have hope in safer travels. Hope that you can get from point a to point be safely. The
Government organizations often use symbols to portray their power or military strength. Writers also use symbols to convey a message to the reader. In his novel Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses symbols to help readers track the loss of civility of the boys.
Hope can be a driving force in our lives. It can pick up the phone to call that one girl back for a second date. It can move our fingers to type the first few words of a novel. It can push us to do more and be more than we ever thought we could be. On the other hand, hope can be like an opiate. It can relieve our tensions and our stresses in a small dose, but it is addictive in big enough quantities. It can make us see things that will never happen. It can convince us we can move a mountain with only the resources to move a molehill. It can dull our senses and blind us to what is really happening around us, allowing us to see only our idealistic fantasies. Most people either don’t let hope control them, or don’t notice or care when it does. For the few that abandon hope entirely, those are the hopeless. The hopeless are the ones that believe the world we live in is one without joy or optimism. One such case is The Alcoholic in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s An Alcoholic Case. The Alcoholic, once a successful cartoonist, has sunk to a pathetic, near invalid drunk. In An Alcoholic Case, Fitzgerald uses the character of The Alcoholic to illustrate what can happen to us when we quit hope cold turkey.
The Finest Hours by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman is the true story of the brave men who risked their own lives to save others. The journey across the sea consisted of many situations that they had to face. Not many people would risk their own lives to save someone else’s. The book describes the situations in a great deal, and any reader will enjoy reading the book.
Being a survivor is a huge accomplishment that doesn 't come easy. There are many hardships that come along with the title survivor.

This boy was only dreading his trip to his new private school 30,000 feet in the air before blacking out and finding himself stranded and alone in a deserted island. But within the short time span of five weeks, he’s innocence was taken from him. I am lucky to interview Ralph Bradshaw, age 12, after weeks of silence, of his deadly, horrifying experience in the stranded island he would call “Hell” itself.
Hope is a feeling inside you that makes feel like you can do anything. When you have that feeling you set yourself up for success and it makes you want to live life like a fairytale. The war started at Valley Forge, George Washington made an army that he had hoped for. Then the British came and forced war over them. “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” (Paine 153) What Paine is trying to say in this quote is that the better we fight, the more joyous and exciting the win will be. I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are: sicknesses, the encouragement of the soldiers, and the congressmen helping the soldiers.
Specialization – of course all of this have one area that we wanted to specialize. For me it is necessary for creating a professional growth and continuous learning.
