She claimed ‘He was looking for little Miles’ which is not clear why she connected her fantasy with Miles and said ‘I know, I know, I know’38. In addition, she said ‘I am absolutely certain that I should see again what I had already seen.’39 and continue listening her twisted thought ‘but within me said…’ this revealed her irregular mind by making herself believe that little Miles know the death of Mr. Quint. The Governess’s obsession was to find something which may not exist on the ground. There was no reliable information she found from Grose and from school about Miles behavior, but she thinks she found ‘horrible proofs’ which is undisclosed. Governess’s unusual encounter with Miss Jessel was untrue because to be believed by Grose she said Flora saw Jessel and said ‘No for the God’s sake don’t!
This is seen by her extreme willingness to take on Troy’s daughter Raynell. She did not take on Raynell for Troy, but for the child’s well-being. Indisputably, it must have been hard for her to take on a child whose arrival had anticipated much heartache, but she pushed her feeling of anguish, sorrow, and selfishness away and did what was best for a helpless human being. Rose was always putting her needs aside to make room for other people’s needs. She was always willing and ready to serve.
“Why do you keep alone, / Of sorriest fancies your companions making” (III.2.10-11). Unlike before, when Lady Macbeth was strong and sure of her decisions, she is now overcome with doubt, worrying all the time about if she made the right decision to push Macbeth into this. When talking to herself, Lady Macbeth says “Naught’s had, all’s spent, / Where our desire is got without content. / ‘Tis safer to be that which we destroy / Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.” (III.2.6-9), showing that she no longer has desire to live knowing that it would be easier to be dead and at peace then to live with the guilt of what she’s
Her education had been quite rigid, and she commented in Fundi that she did not see schools as places where one was necessarily "free to express an opinion," something she was very anxious to do” ( “Ella Josephine Baker” ). Ella thinks she has a more important role in the world than teaching. She wanted a place where children could speak freely about racism and discrimination without getting in trouble. Jem and Scout think people are judgemental because of race. “Jem and Scout believed that Tom Robinson would be acquitted, but he was found guilty by the all white jury” ( Magill and Kohler 6594 ).
Moral Relativism, should it be abandoned or not? This was the original question that came to my mind when starting off reading this excerpt. Mary Midgley, the author of this story, mentioned that now days we as people deny that we will ever be able to understand a culture that is not our own. That got me thinking and as I was thinking I found what she said to be relatively true. I feel as if society has shaped us as young adults to judge our culture as being the best and all other cultures as coming up second best.
When first hearing her introduction I didn’t quite understand how that was going to tie back in with her speech, but once she finished her introduction it began to make a little more sense. In addition, in her concluding paragraph she tied her belief of not being sorry for being herself into her attention getter like her weird scarf collection, or her never killing bugs. Not apologizing if you don’t mean it, gratitude is greater than apologies, and not being sorry for who you are were three main points that struck me the most from “No Apology Living.” Megan did a good job of really persuading me to want to live a life like this. It is a way that could help turn my life into being more positive. “I’m sorry,” is just a phrase that seems ingrained into our minds and flows at the thought of us trying to act as a little bandage in a
The political environment was equally unpleasing to her, and this explains why she eventually opted to be a rebel. Her orientation of seeing a society that supported boys and frustrated girls provoked her inner being and made her begin to question the validity of those beliefs. Her turn around attitude shocked her parents, and she had no apologies for that. She eventually came out as an iron lady who could not be brought down by unjust laws and backward cultural
8 Blake Lively Wanted People To Know That She Wasn’t Anything Like Serena Her role as Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl put Blake Lively on the map and helped her to launch herself into a diverse movie career, but she wasn’t happy about the message that her character sent to younger viewers of show. And she wanted people to know that she was very different to the character she played. "People loved it, but it always felt a little personally compromising—you want to be putting a better message out there," she said, speaking about the show and her desire to distance herself from Serena. "The lines become blurred. I would not be proud to be the person who gave someone the cocaine that made them overdose and then shot someone and slept with
They win when you respond the way they expect you to. Change the rules of the game, girl and they might not like it so much " (194 ). This is a way that we can do alone when we are confronting racism , and there's no one reaching out to help, as a person that is trying to survive just saying " thank you " for what that person did, they would feel like you're an award person or think that what they did benefit you which they doesn't want to. So they would and leave and move on. Also to overcome racism have the mindset that alone, you can get through this and do this might be a struggle now but its help others.
Scholl intentionally disregards norms to retain her individuality and rebelliousness. Despite being knocked down by her teachers and principal, Scholl refused to have her spirit and resistance completely smothered, “Later, Sophie would not buckle again on her political views: In another letter to Fritz, she wrote, ‘I don't like to think about it, but soon there is going to be nothing left but politics, and as long as it's so confused and evil, it's cowardly to turn away from it,’" (Campbell Bartoletti). Showing her resilience and distinct identity and will, Scholl believes that it is cowardly to not take action against adversity. Although she knew that having and voicing her opinions was heresy, and that Fritz could turn her in, she still remained confident and unwavering about doing the right thing. Scholl made an impact on the world because she held onto her personality, and without her iconic and rebellious attitude towards life, she would not have made nearly the difference in the world.
