The following scene occurred when one of the crew members took notice of Equiano's pensive gazes towards the quadrant. "And one of them, willing to increase it, as well as to gratify my curiosity, made me one day look through it." Whether or not this crew member indulged Olaudah's interest because of good will, or because of selfish satisfactions is irrelevant; but you might wonder what this quote has to do with compliance--I assure you, it is rather reasonable. What happened to the slaves who tried to steal fish? What happened to the slaves who jumped over-board?
I know that I do not know the man in the slightest or how he felt inside, but knowing that he committed suicide, this speech feels all the more honest. He purposefully comes off as honest by not giving the standard allegory that portrays himself - as he called it - “...the wise old fish explaining what water is to you younger fish…”, that in a way that at times could come off a disingenuous; however, in reading and listening to this speech I felt like he really opened up to the audience in a raw way, by sharing the lesson, which is not to be a prisoner to our instinctive cynicism and to trying to be more open to different possibilities is probably a more effective way to live a healthier life . In his attempt to be open up he uses cynicism to fuel his drive, or rather his fear of letting it consume him that could lead him to do something drastic that could adversely affect his or other’s lives, instead recommending to take a step back and think about the world of possibilities that could come from - however, maddening - being more aware and honest to the world that they are a part of. Obviously, the exact thoughts that led David Foster Wallace to take his life were only known by him, but I think that while he could not emulate his advice, he wanted others to live better lives. The devices he used in the structure of the speech - even if not by design - are essential parts of making this speech’s message not only come off as sincere, but as effective as it would have been had gone the more traditional
Fisherman, for the most part, aren’t like that and would rather help keep it clean because they care about the environment for the most part. Also, if the water becomes too polluted, then there would be no fish to catch. One stereotype that has the most truth to it is that fisherman lie, but mostly only about the size and how the fish was caught. Everyone lies, and fisherman are no exception to this. Afterall, fisherman only do it to spice up the story because who likes a boring story, and it wouldn’t be a fishing story if the size of the fish wasn’t exaggerated.
The Erik fish dream is demolished by his own brother “Paul”, by telling the truth. In the novel Tangerine. Edward Bloor expresses the message, “The truth shall set you free“ in the novel of tangerine. The message of Tangerine, “The truth shall set you free” I believe that; that message he wrote it because Edward is trying to say that telling the truth will make you have freedom in your life and to not have fear or even hate and lies in your life. Also that Edward Bloor writes Paul telling the truth on page 269-285, it states that Paul is facing his fear of Erik and Paul is telling the truth for the first time in history and Paul is actually talking to his dad and mom.
The second that she says she thinks fishing is dumb, he goes about covering his rod and gear, saying that he “would have given anything to not appear dumb in Sheila’s severe and unforgiving eyes” (Wetherell 3). When he is trying to keep the bass on the line, he makes excuses for her and tries to keep her from knowing what he is actually doing, all in the hope to keep her happy with him. This conveys how much Sheila’s opinion means to the boy, and the extent he is willing to go to make sure she approves of him, even if it means lying about his most beloved hobby. Ultimately, weighing the importance of both the fish and the girl to the protagonist, I predict that he will choose Sheila over the
He became a “smooth signer” by having a tutor before he tried enrolling in school.. He applied to Maryland School for the Deaf in Federick, where he was hired as a secretary and a bookkeeper. When Veditz was 17 years old, he really wanted to apply to Gallaudet but could not afford tuition.
Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself. George knew that he had to kill Lennie himself. The facts that Curley would have killed Lennie if George didn’t, Lennie’s disability was only a burden, and George had to look out for himself all prove that George was not wrong in euthanizing Lennie. These three reasons justify the actions that George had to take. George was not wrong in killing Lennie in the way that George had only good motives and was only looking out for
In Harold Skulsky’s Revenge, Honor, and Conscience in ‘Hamlet’, he discusses that by the uncertainty of his instruction, Hamlet’s father basically leaves it up to Hamlet to make a choice with possible options for revenge. Lack of will and the code of honor are eventually disproved. Though Hamlet never disregards his promise to unlimited vengeance, he manages to lessen it by engaging from conscience and compassion, first to the code of honor, and then, having to become a doomed scourge of God. These calls lead up to Hamlet's ultimate reunion of conscience with sacred order, and label a stable religious downfall from which he is saved, through no quality of his own, by the brief insanity of his final outbreak of rage. Skulsky says, "...honor
