The narrator feels as if working and being productive will help her health, “personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me some good” (Stetson 648) The narrator feels held back from work and everything in general. She feels doubted upon because of what she believes is right for her. She does everything she is told by everyone else. The narrator is becoming iller from not doing the things that get her mind off of everything.
Fleur Beale wants readers to understand that no matter what others think, what others talk about doesn’t matter as you should do what you think is right. The main character, Hannah Carstairs was sure she didn’t want to get married but everyone who knew her believed she should. Despite the talk about this and disapproval from others she didn’t give up her opinions and stayed strong with what she believed. This is important as often in life we will have an original opinion which is good but courage is sticking with that opinion even when it is obvious that others disagree and not changing that because of this mater. A movie that is similar to this book is Divergent.
She continues with the plan because she believes that her love for her family overrules the law. Ismene is more timid and obedient than Antigone. When Antigone was attempting to convince Ismene to help her bury their brother, she refused by saying it is too dangerous and that she doesn’t want to suffer the consequences. Ismene speaks her feelings to her sister, “They mean a great deal to me, but I have no strength to break the laws that were made for the public good” (Sophocles). This informs the reader that she doesn’t like to take risks and do ambitious things.
He is also a person who doesn’t like to give up, which really shows. Micha’s father gave up on him and his mother and he didn’t want to follow in his footsteps, but also because he loves Ella. He has so much patience, perseverance, and dedication for Ella which is ravishing. One theme from this story is how Ella changed her look from “gothic and dark” to “preppy and girly” and how she tries to act nice when before she really didn’t care. The quote is “You can’t just change who you are on the outside and except it to change who you are on the inside” it represents the main topic of the book.
He stopped Pittston’s attempts to stall the case several times and desired to bring the justice to the victims. Maybe he was affected by the personal experiences of those plaintiffs and showed some favour to their side, but he was not off the line and still performed just like what a reasonable and professional judge would perform. However, in terms of the ethical conduct of Pittston, I would say I was so unhappy with their indifference and apathy. They did not think about how their actions would affect those already aggrieved individuals. Those victims already lost some important things in their lives, Pittston’s coldness and their focus on getting rid of the responsibility and avoiding payables could hurt those people even deeper.
She knew she was better off and this is why it was so devastating to see that he was alive. She thought her life was going to change for the better but after seeing him alive she knew that her life would remain the same. Based on Mrs. Mallards thoughts and actions it is easy to asses that it wasn’t joy she died from, instead it was the harsh realization that she wasn’t actually
Nea is disappointed and shocked that Sourdi doesn’t want feminism, “”… You don’t have to live like this. Ma is wrong. You can be anything, Sourdi.” (Chai 148).” Nea desperately wants Sourdi to be exposed to feminism. She wants Sourdi to know that she can have the freedom she wants in order to achieve her dreams. As previously explained, marriage may seem to ruin a woman’s dreams and future achievements, but that is not the case in feminism.
I think if I was not attached to the belief that I will never be a great nurse, I might be less likely to have less empathy and respect, and be more shy because I won’t want to say anything that makes me sound like I have an “attitude”. What I have noticed every since Sunday is that I do value how hardworking and helpful I am, and that what I do is not easy at all, but I hold little value to my communication skills. What I mean by that is maybe I need to be even more aware of what I say to people. To this day I still don’t think I did anything wrong to that patient, but she made me realize that I need to be more aware of what I say and some people get offended more easily. I am going to continue to focusing on others and showing respect.
Although she already possesses these values, she regains them while helping Mariane understand. Dorine is a perfect example of a strong woman who establishes the life she wants, liberty to do as she pleases, and happiness in helping others. On the other hand, in "The Death of Ivan Ilyich", Ivan is opposite to Dorine. Although he is deathly sick, he feels sorry for himself and doesn’t seem to care much to try to get better. Ivan is weak and uncertain of what he wants out of his life, so giving up seems to be the best option for him.
Brown could have used more persuasion in this speech, even though she was not there to convince or persuade her audience to do anything. She was there to help them to realize that vulnerability is good, and telling them to embrace it. But there was not enough persuasion to it. She did a good job of telling them how their lives could be if they opened up to their vulnerability, but many people need intense persuasion to change any aspect of their lives. Her use of logos was good in the terms that Dr. Brown had a ton of supporting evidence for what she was talking about.
