What he said was wrong, but he was punished and he changed his ways. The gods taught him a lesson, and made it so that it took ten years to travel home to Ithaca. After Odysseus is punished, he understands what he did wrong, and learns to become a better man, therefore redeeming his hero status. He shows that he has learned his lesson in the episode “Odysseus’ Revenge,” when he says, “Now watch me hit a target that no man has hit before, if I can make this shot. Help me, Apollo,” (1410-1411).
Anne conveyed moments when she was put in the worst situations and all that was on her mind was the life after the war. Guido was not just fighting for his own life in the concentration camp but his son's life by changing the circumstances positively Both being optimistic, they changed the way readers and people will watch or read real or fictional stories and inspire them to look at the glass half full. When it comes to optimism in this time period these characters both demonstrated a better way to live and cope with the hardest times they might ever have to face. Sadly, they both did not make it out of the holocaust era alive but they left a strong impact on the beautiful hearts people still have during that
The karate kid was directed by Harald Zwart and the other films he was known for was the pink panther 2, Hamilton, and agent code bank 2. The scenes I had was the ending scenes showing Dre victory and him earning respect from the other coach team. The element made it memorable by showing how hard you work for something you will receive a positive ending. The dramatic part was when they got jealous of Dre flirting with this girl they liked. It was expressive by showing the characters had to go through tile the final
During one of the morning sessions, she notices Winston exerting minimal effort during stretching. The instructress communicates specifically with Winston through the screen and after exorbitant amounts of encouragement, “Winston, with a violent lunge, succeeded in touching his toes with his knees unbent, for the first time in several years”(37). Winston recognizes the problems with the world in which he lives; unlike others, he can remember the past and knows that the Party alters history so that they can remain in power. However, even he ultimately recognizes that going against the Party will result in punishment. Therefore, although the exercises hurt Winston, the combination of the lady’s relentless focus along with the idea that the rest of the population also participates in the stretching overpowers Winston’s innate resistance to the Party.
Speeches in America’s history have been very powerful and moving. The speech given by Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain before the Battle of Gettysburg that changed the minds of 114 mutineers to fight alongside him in this battle. I feel like I could compare Colonel Chamberlain's speech to the wonderful “I Have a Dream Speech” spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Both of these amazing and powerful words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. Colonel Chamberlain’s speech were trying to move these mutineers to fight for his regiment that is below half strength and Dr. King is trying to get rid of racism.
The theme that I was mainly connecting to was the message of, do your very best to get what you desire but don’t go so far too extreme measures. The last paragraph of this story is sharing how the hunger artist died, but one boy came over to ask why he didn’t stop fasting, his excuse was he couldn’t find anything he liked to eat. We all truly know he just wanted the right amount of attention from certain people applauding him of his talent, fasting. The hunger artist did everything he could to become the greatest performer of fasting, along with being so weak and full of pain he didn’t reach his
“The key thing to remember is to tell a story that resonates strongly with some, instead of trying to tell a story that pleases everyone. No story works with everyone, not even Apple’s. But the people who dig your story have the power to spread it, now quicker and easier than ever.And you’re likely to validate the story you’re telling yourself by trying to get your friends to switch away from those whack Vans, too. These stories are how your placebo effect spreads and becomes real to more and more people.” ACKNOWLEGEMENT This research paper is made possible through the help and support from everyone, including: parents, teachers, family, friends, and in essence, all sentient beings. We would like to show our acknowledgment of gratitude toward the following significant advisors and
I believe this occurred because he took interest and time to learn of them. I believe when people take interest in others who are suffering, and start to see that person as who they can, instead of who they presently see. A whole new person emerges, because someone cared enough to see a positive change occur in that person’s life. I had that to happen to me about ten years ago; I was experiencing some pretty heavy stuff, although I carried on with life, as if it was perfect. I walked around with my big Kool-aid smile.
Yossi, speaking to Elie after the deadly inspection, says ‘“Anyways you were running too fast,’ I stated to laugh, I was happy” (Wiesel 89-92). They have confidence in each other to make each other laugh and smile. Friends are one of the most important things to have and remember in these situations because they keep you from giving up. After his father announces that he’s been picked for selection and tries to give Elie his inheritance, Elie says, ”Don’t talk like that, Father [...] I don’t want you to say such things. Keep the spoon and knife.
I assume this semester I have learned how to be a improve my writing in my whole life than ever. But I feel the highest things I have improved in was remembering to capitalize your I’s and to pull out of all the worn out words such as; Big, good, and bad and Instead I use colossal, Favorable, and Improper. At the start of the year I would never capitalize your I’s and use loads of worn out words. Some of the things I absolutely need to improve is the clarity of my writing being it is tough to understand what I am trying to explain and win over the reader. Ultimately, I learned tons of excellent material to use in my life for later semesters and years to
