But they're angry at different people. Amy is mad at the guy who is she had this relationship with. In the other hand Drake is mad at everyone that doubted him, every one that told him he wasn’t going to make it. Drake is also telling the rest of the rappers that he is the only original rapper now, the one that is doing new things is him no one else. The difference was the audience, In drakes song, you could say he’s trying to relate to every person who has a dream, he’s telling them never to give up and not to worry what other people think or say about you, just follow your dream, do what makes you happy and you’ll become successful just like he was able to do.
I’m an asset.” This very quote links into how Bateman and his friend Price, are obsessed with securing the dream of many Americans in the 1980s which was to be invaluable and superior than others. This very desire to be better than others pushes Patrick to jealousy, paranoia, rage, and a lust for prestige and domination which in effect leads him to acts of murder, torture, cannibalism, mutilation and necrophilia. Just like Alex, Bateman gets insulted over little things. When Bateman and his associates discuss the miniature details of their business cards (e.g. the colour, font type, layout and the card stock, it becomes clear that they represent their masculinity at stake.
We live in a world where everyone seeks ‘instant gratification’ and the message that is propagated is: You can have! This is why credit card debt is such an insidious thing in the modern world. Our culture has become so accustomed to using credit to purchase whatever we think we desire, that the idea of delayed gratification is almost laughable. It certainly seems outdated!

Next, they would get shaved of all body hair, disinfected, and taken to the showers, which were either extremely cold or unbearably hot (Selection).

Mengele was so enthused about this work that he would often take other doctor’s shifts when they didn’t want to do it (Selection). Hence the nickname, “Angel of Death” or “White
When we raise money up to the point of idolatry and convince ourselves that it is the key to happiness we can always find a way to justify the worst of actions. Most of the wealthiest people in our society have probably had to do some questionable deeds to stay wealthy. Our society seems to view this as a necessary evil to rise to the top, but that is justified in the end. President Trump has been continually praised for his dealmaking and financial success, while his questionable morals have been repeatedly justified as a result. This is just one example of how success has come to be defined by how much money you make, no matter how you made
His successor Macduff, was birthed by cesarean section. The way that people overlook critical information is due to the overwhelming effect that ambition can have on individuals.

No matter how great the future could be, we are still entangled in the past and seek to recapture what we once had, only this time we promise everything else will be perfect. The nature of humanity still consists of people thinking of ways they can benefit out of every situation and artificial relationships with “give and take” are still abundant everywhere. We are able to see people freeloading off people’s generosity and discarding them when their use has expired, for example, gold diggers, who marry people for their wealth and success. There are also still people like Gatsby, the “collectors” who want everything rare and valuable that they’ve never had before; mansions, hydroplanes and a beautiful wife/husband to admire it all with them. There are also plenty of people like Daisy, whose lives seem distant, unreachable and glamorous.
For Macbeth, power is something that he craved and continued lusting after it. The more he had, the bigger his head became, the more power he desired, and eventually his reign came with a cost. He lost everything he valued, including his power, and everyone he loved because he only thought about himself. Power is something that is greater than us, while it can be used wisely and successfully if honed and guided in the proper manner. There needs to remain a humility, desire to serve those you have a power over, and a reverence to the One who gave you the power.
I am too much i’ the sun”Said feeling of loss and desire force people to struggle to obtain items in which a wholesome version of themselves would not inquire as necessary. Also equivalent in the want for money and power. Two of these chemicals in your brain are dopamine and serotonin
This allowed the rich to become richer and the poor to be more heavily controlled by the government, which widened the gap between the powerless and those in power. Moreover, the repetition of the word, 'mark' is especially exasperating as it underlines how the general population are always marked with obvious indications of wretchedness and 'woe'. The way the word shifts from the verb arrangement to the noun in line 4 can likewise remain to accentuate how the storyteller is not only an aloof onlooker but is also going about as one of the sufferers himself, quickly influencing the poem to appear to be more individual. The repetitions represent the incapable repetitive suffering of those in the poem. The
