Chris displayed his arrogance all throughout his journey. His arrogance from the start was that he didn’t rely on Human materials. Humankind may not make things perfect every time but they make things because they need them. So Chris was being very arrogant by not using the things created just for his purpose by thinking he could do everything on his own and in the end that was what got him killed. But by the same standard anyone can understand Chris’s thinking.
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
The brother showed more pride for helping Doodle then concern for Doodles health. “Pride is a wonderful,terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death.” (p.419) The quote shows that he did not know the effect of pride till it was to late. “Renaming my brother was perhaps the kindest thing I ever did for him, because his first name only sounds good on a tombstone.” (p.417) The Brother tells you that the pride he had in renaming his brother because no one expected anything from him. This is another reason why his brother caused his death by having little concern for what he done and he left Doodle in the rain. The narrator from "The Scarlet Ibis", causes Doodles death because he left him off in the rain.
Odysseus was also irresponsible because he never told the truth and he disobeyed the gods. Odysseus was all around, irresponsible. In conclusion, Odysseus is not the archetype hero people claim him to be. Odysseus shows characteristics of irresponsibility, unloyalty and pride. Odysseus falls short of what people claim an archetype hero to be.
It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero. Stanley’s expectations weren’t high considering that Zero had been away for days without food, water, or shelter, but when he overheard the Warden and Mr. Sir over talking about how they were going to delete all of Zero’s files and act like he never existed, he knew he made the right choice. Near the end of the book, my feelings about the lines above were reassured to be true when Stanley was officially released back to his lawyer and before leaving he said, “‘I can’t leave Hector.’” (Sachar 219). This caused Ms. Morengo, Stanley’s lawyer, to demand Zero’s files but then discovering that Camp Green Lake was a fraud, forcing it to be shut
He created a 'self ' purely after himself and his ideas. At first, fulfilled by the feeling of success, he thought the creature was “beautiful” (39). But it was not long until he realized how ugly and faulty his creation really was. It crippled him when he is finally able to grasp what exactly he had created; shattered him. Because the pathological narcissist had not ever dared believe that he could possibly fail so
I was oblivious to my own action because of attributional biases. Although I tried to reason his behavior I still failed to recall my own actions. This paper has made me understand the reasons to why I judged the man in a certain way, and also made me see that people can be oblivious towards their own actions and can project a situation in a way that does not hurt the self but it can also be seen that through introspection self action can be salient. In conclusion, situational factor can have a tremendous effect on a person, we must not fail to realized this and the fact that we might be the person causing the
I also didn’t see Aristotle provide examples of what a coward, courageous, or reckless person may resemblance to. As for someone who is reckless might actually provide happiness or security for some people in different communities and achieve the goals of what they all wanted. Overall, Aristotle is not a relativistic person as he didn’t think of how it might compare to a relative person. I think this has to do with the fact that he is a victorian morality and didn’t really get to experience situations
Victor hates his parents prefers being alone until he meets Eli. Eli is someone who everyone loves even when they first meet him, except Victor. Although he soon grows on him because of their shared interests. The story is beautifully written because it doesn’t reveal the what the underlying problem is right away. It reveals it over time.
(5 pts.) Major Rawls doesn’t know Owen as well as John or Hester but yet he still thinks that everything he does is too great for the world. It’s ironic because Major Rawls wasn’t a very good person yet him saying that says something amazing about Owen (611). The following is a couplet from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “Cowards die many times before their deaths; / The valiant never taste of death but once.” It appears more than once in these pages.
