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
He is caring because he felt bad for not having quality ingredients to make better meals for the orphans. He displayed courageousness when he went against the rules of the orphanage and became a luchador so he could possibly win the prizes that were given to the winners. Nacho was considerate of the orphans’ needs by using the money that he received from the match to buy better food and a bus for field trips. After watching the movie, I have
Throughout the play Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller we see first hand what the thought of the American dream can do to a hard working man such as Willy Loman. Craig L. Thomas once said that “You stuff someone into the American Dream, and it becomes a prison.” What he means is that sometimes when people work hard and stay determined they don’t always end up on the wealthy side, and Death of a Salesman displays just that. Willy worked hard all his life and was determined to provide for his family. After a few years of working hard however, he starts to run into some economic struggles. In the beginning of the play wee see Willy’s sons, Biff and Happy, on the same path as their father.
The Real Model Boy In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer makes many mistakes but what 's important is that he progresses from them. In life you have two choices, you can lie or tell the truth. At the beginning of the book, Tom thought you needed to lie to get ahead in life, but as the book continued, he learned telling the truth is always better. He went through many schemes and adventures and ran away. When he returned, he realized that things didn 't change and he still faced the same problems.
He valued importance in his individual self and whoever worked for him got nothing but bad treatments. Chicken George on the other hand, got Second-to-none treatment from him because he was his son, and he was bringing him in the most money in the fastest amount of time. Because of his self- centeredness, he often betted against a rich English Cockfighter,
He failed as a carpenter, a cook, and as a waiter. But from all of his mistakes he learned a very valuable lesson, “I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how many times you failed. You only have to be right once” (Mark Cuban). And it 's with this idea in mind that Cuban finally made a name for himself in business, reality tv, and the NBA. I really enjoyed the story of Mark Cuban because his story is a great example of what it means to never give up, no matter how bad things look.
Odysseus has clearly learned not to be impulsive in his decision-making from his past errors, for example on the island of the Laestrygonians and that of the Cyclops, his bad decision making cost many of his men their lives. This decision to wait and contemplate where he is and think about his decision is very smart because at his palace, there is a “world of pain” (11.132). If he ran home, he might have been killed by the suitors. This question shows that after suffering so much, he finally has learned patience. In response to this, and his whole speech, Athena praises him and says he is “so winning” and he is “worldly-wise” (13.377,77).
They were more than just friends, they were like brothers, because of their willingness to sacrifice themselves for each other. Lennie was willing to give up his “ketchup” to make George happy, and George made the ultimate choice to kill Lennie even though it tore him apart to do it. George and Lennie had the strongest and most real friendship there is, the kind that both friends would do anything for each other. Real friends don’t think about themselves or anyone else. They only care about doing the right thing for their
He pushed through the final moments of being a prisoner in a concentration camp and survived because he persevered through the torment. The last few weeks were the worst Elie had faced, but he was able to survive because he kept his faith and his hope that liberation was near. Similarly, in Life is Beautiful, Joshua begins to give up on the game that his father has created for him. Guido, knowing that losing faith could kill people, did everything he could to assure his son that it was almost over. He convinced Joshua that he needed to push just a little harder in order to win and get his tank.
Firstly, Nick’s opening narration is iconic, and maybe one of the best beginnings ever: “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since: Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” We see that Nick is gentle and never underestimate anyone, which makes him the only one to sympathize with Gatsby. Nick 's open-mindedness gives him a deeper perspective on the people around him and protects him from falling subject to the glitzy, superficial materialism of the 1920s. This iconic narration help us to increase our real life capacity for empathy. We can be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and view the world from their
Christopher does, he experiences a lot which changes he attitude towards people. Lennie is mentally retarded, which can be seen in his actions; he loves to pet soft things and is very faithful to George, ‘I do leave it all for you’. Christopher is also very faithful towards his father until he discovers that his father lied to him about his mother dying. They are both very curious as you can read in the table above. You could say that Christopher is more curious than Lennie, because Christopher wanted to investigate who killed Wellington even though his father told him not to.
The elderly brother who never understood his younger sibling was always watching him pushing moral values on him, which does more harm than good. In the end both find themselves and Sonny’s brother finally understands him. There have been many perspectives to what happen to Connie, with that type of ending many have concluded that Connie was harmed. To Connie’s surprise, he knew what all of her friends names were, and what her family 's names were, and actually where they were at that very moment.
