After living his whole life free and unrestrained by anyone or anything, he found himself confined and threatened in a way he could never have imagined” (55). Stevenson could have said this in many ways. One being, “Walter told me those week had left him devastated and he found himself confined in ways he could never have imagined.” However, he decided to write it in a way where readers could insert themselves into the situation and feel for his client. Stevenson’s use of pathos is overall effective and helps him to prove his points about the injustice justice
He thinks, “Oh God, what a strenuous career it is that I’ve chosen! (…) there’s the course of travelling, worries about making train connections, bad and irregular food, contact with different people all the time so that you can never get to know anyone or become friendly with them.” (Kafka 2). He only fulfills it in order to pay off his family’s debt. He is constantly thinking of quitting. However, what keeps his working as a traveling salesman is his loyalty and his sense of obligation to the family.
When talking about the various, everyday tasks that typically bring out frustration, Wallace says that, “…traffic jams and crowded aisles and long checkout lines give me time to think, and if I don't make a conscious decision about how to think…I’m going to be pissed and miserable…” (235). Wallace uses this first person point of view in order to personalize his assertion that discontentment follows thinking about oneself first. By presenting himself as a fellow perpetrator of self-centeredness, Wallace is better able to relate his point by bringing himself to a more human level. In doing so, he is able to emphasize the extent to which egoistic thinking reaches by showing himself as one who also struggles to break the grasp of thinking about oneself. Wallace demonstrates that, in order to become content in one’s life, the cessation of egoistic thought is necessary and that anyone can succumb to the natural state of human

Also, the pawnshop manager uses the declarative clauses the most, but followed by imperative, and the interrogative is the least commonly used compared to choices of the customer from line 29 to line 46. After line 28, the customer starts angry and using more interrogative clauses to annoy the pawnshop manager such as “What about that one right there? ”, “Do they won't work?” in line 38 and “Do these f****** phone work?” in line 41. The pawnshop also feels offense after the personal attack from the customer and starts requesting the customer to leave by using more imperative clauses and calling a security called Joe such as “They start telling you: Give me your receipt or get the hell out of here” in line 37, “Take a picture of the parking lot” in line 42 and “Show, show him how the phone works outside” in line
In Andy Weir’s novel, The Martian (2011), he portrays the idea that extreme isolation can be a powerful motivator. Andy Weir first used the text to describe how the main character, Mark Watney, is the loneliest human being that ever existed, due to how far from civilization he was stuck at. He then used very short and powerful sentences in order to connect to the reader. “I’d give anything for a five-minute conversation with anyone. Anyone, anywhere.
We operate with blind certainty, “a close mindedness that amounts to an imprisonment so total that the prisoner doesn’t even know he’s locked up.” He also admits that a huge percentage of what he believes is correct is wrong. David Foster Wallace reminds the graduates that there is real value in the, “awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time.” He felt conflicted and realized that giving the speech is problematic for him because of the conflicting realities of what a commencement address is supposed to converse, what the graduates want to hear, and what message he really wanted to convey. To be a ‘usage fanatic’, one with an extreme, unreasoning enthusiasm for the customary way of doing something, is not what David Foster
Holden constantly complains about society and the world around him, it’s always too much for him, it’s always forgery. “I’m always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff,...” (Salinger 51). Holden’s observation is discussing that people often lie when leaving a conversation or when saying hello to people, Holden claims that he hates when people say they are glad to see you because they do not mean it.

An important theme of the outsiders would be that life is not always fair and bad things happen to all kinds of people no matter how famous or rich you are, but no matter what happens you always have to move on and deal with it. In the book, The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, the Greasers have a lot of unfair things happen to them no matter how nice or respectful they act. Going through all the stuff the Greasers go through they have to mature more quickly and lose their innocence at a young age. For example, at the drive through when Cherry was taking to Ponyboy, she said, “No not innocent. You’ve seen too much to be innocent” (26).
Yet the most memorable divergence is undoubtedly the lack of “y’all”. The use of this clunky and rather unbecoming term was always fairly unanimous, even across demographics, in my Texan experience; it has always been a cultural norm for me, uttered without a second thought, much less a poking look. Now, when I’m speaking on the phone to my family 300 miles away, I hear a chuckle from my friends. Never before had I experienced any sort of criticism, joking or otherwise, over this
- When abuse has been ongoing for a length of time, the victim can feel like she/he deserves the abuse, is in denial over the extent of the abuse, embarrassed about others finding out, fear being killed if they left and fear the impact on the children or losing the children. Many victims of domestic and family violence, believe nothing can be done for them- they see on the news how little action is done such as in the case of Benjamin Ard and the assault of two women. In this case Ard charged with domestic violence, but was released from jail on $1,000 cash bail. He went on to breach his bail and was then charged with domestic violence assault and violating the conditions of release from a prior charge; he was sentenced to only thirteen months
