Although both men did an excellent job recruiting members as well as preaching their ideas I believe Malcolm X was superior due to the fact that he gained much of his support within a much shorter time period compared to Gandhi who gradually gained his followers. Both men reached a large collection of followers but Malcolm X’s language from different situations in his life helped accumulate a larger crowd making him more of a popular threat towards his opposition. Malcolm X’s attitude towards the white man pertaining to violence is what makes him superior to gandhi who was taught only to be a pacifist. The aggression from the African-Americans is what helped them gain independence in a shorter period of time compared to the lengthy process of Gandhi. Gandhi’s marches and fasts were extremely effective and brought thousands of people together to unite to eliminate a common British control, but the effectiveness of Malcolm X’s power growing to beyond his control, was a leading factor in fighting for independence.
The wives of the warriors are held in high regard and are respected for keeping the house while the men are fighting, working, or have already departed to the afterlife. Nolasco 4 John Flanagan all together created a world that far exceeds any other book series that I have read. He has created a world of fantasy that also hold some truth. He has made the worlds of both the rangers and the Seawolves, and has brought them together in spectacular fashion. The trials that each individual must overcome is remarkable to the reader who may be facing similar problems or are confused on what to do
Even though Achebe sets Okonkwo to his downfall, it is evident that Okonkwo is a great hero despite his rash behavior and temper. Generally, a tragic hero is born into royalty and has already attained the noble status. However, Okonkwo was born into a poor family, and according to Okonkwo his father was “weak and feminine”. Regardless his father’s failures Okonkwo acquires respect in the Igbo society by defeating a great wrestler: As a young man of eighteen he had brought honor to his village by throwing Amalinze the Cat. (1) Okonkwo furthermore spends his hours toiling away in an attempt to earn his way up in the patriarchal society.

After the raid, he had also given thanks to the Wolverine for giving him a light “war wound” (150) which was indeed an honor back then. Through the strength given to him by the Wolverine for the attack on the Crows, Fools Crow earned honor and respect from his tribe members. He was looked upon during meetings and his words were taken at an important level. Fools Crow was no longer known as the dog lover and now young men looked up to him as their role model. Even his younger brother, Running Fisher, who had been the man back then when Fools Crow was timid was now jealous of his achievements and possessions now seeing his as puny in comparison to his older
Little did Ron Hall know that soon this man would be one of his closest friends and they would embark on an interesting journey of friendship and faith. Ron and Denver’s story began with Ron’s wife, Debbie. At the time Ron was not the best husband and was very self absorbed, mainly focused only on his wealthy art gallery. He spent very little time thinking of those who are less fortunate than he and was as he put it “not the best husband”. At this same time his wife was dreaming of ways in which she could help the homeless and wanted
“The Great Dempsey” “A champion is someone who's ready when the gong rings- not just before, not just after- but when it rings.” This quote represents Jack Dempsey because he was always prepared and worked very hard to earn world titles many times. He was a very good boxer who proved himself multiple times by defeating people that doubted him. Dempsey had huge disadvantages because of his height and weight. He was very small to be fighting in the heavyweight division only weighing at 187 pounds and his height being 6’1” but he still managed to win using his quickness to win. Jack Dempsey was one of the best boxers of all time (‘Jack Dempsey Biography”).
Since he was the one who grow up as a space, “Chambers was strong beyond his years, and a good fighter, strong because he was coarsest fed, and hard worked about the house, and a good fighter because Tom furnished him plenty of practice…”(27) Had Chambers grown up with his birth family, he wouldn't have gotten those experiences. Twain notes that it's those experiences as a slave that made him the strong, hardworking person he was. Even at the end, when Chambers learns his true identity, he still acts like the way he was raised, which is that of a slave. Twain writes, “his manners were the manners of a slave. Money and fine clothes could not mend the defects or cover them up; they only made hem more glaring and more pathetic.” (136)Even though he was a “white man”, he still acted as a slave.
Okonkwo falls under the hero archetype present in many works of literature throughout history. A few of the qualities and actions that are cause for his inclusion into this category include his reputation as a great wrestler, saying “he had brought honor to his village by throwing Amalinze the Cat,” (Achebe 1) a great warrior, “[Okonkwo] had shown incredible prowess in two inter-tribal wars,” (Achebe 8) and his willing to act upon his duties such as receiving Ikemefuna in chapter four and travelling to the village to acquire Ikemefuna in chapter two. This idea of Okonkwo, a prime example of manliness, being a hero expresses that Umuofian culture views masculinity as synonymous with many traits of characters who fall under the hero archetype. In conclusion, Chinua Achebe, in his novel Things Fall Apart, uses both indirect and direct characterization, anecdotes, and foils, as well as archetypes to express the strict views Okonkwo and Umuofian culture possess regarding masculinity and femininity. Characterization types show these themes by expressing the traits involved with these ideas, while anecdotes and foils play on these characterizations to create an addition to them.
Runner, prisoner of war camp survivor, and Olympic medalist are three attributes that describe Louis Zamperini. Many people know that Louis Zamperini was an Olympic medalist, but he was so much more. As a well known Olympic medalist, Louis Zamperini, showed Americans that they could get through anything if they just pushed themselves to the limit. He left a lasting legacy as a prisoner of war survivor. Louis’s life started during his childhood were he became a troublemaker and had many near death experiences.
This made Andrew Jackson an orphan at the tender age of 15; it also hardened him as an individual. As he grew up, his other ventures would also be stained by his unemotional, yet power-driven traits. For example, he proved to be a ruthless military leader during the war of 1812. His name can be traced back to the battles of Horseshoe Bend and New Orleans. After the latter, a sense of patriotism followed and with it, it elevated Jackson to celebrity status.
Joe’s rough start and the struggle he went through in his early years makes winning the Olympic gold medal in 1936 more meaningful and inspiring than it might have been otherwise. As a child of only 10 years, Joe faced many difficult hardships he thought would never end. From his mother dying, to being kicked out of his only home and being abandoned by his own father, he was very persistent to get what he wanted in life and to get where he wanted to be in life as well, which ultimately in exchange, led him and his meritable teammates to winning the Olympic gold medal. I find this story extraordinarily ironic due to the fact that Joe took himself and what he had, which was nothing, and made it and himself into something. All of the many difficult obstacles he faced and overcome makes it extremely difficult to believe that he had as much optimism as he did growing up
