Appreciation “I want a better father” these words may be said by most of the children due to their focusing on their fathers’ imperfections. However, children should recognize that every single father on earth is important in some such way, and a father deserves to be admired as a human being. One of the most charming commercials people could ever see represents the dissatisfaction from children toward their fathers; children usually focus on their father’s weak points. The ad that titled “Silence of Love” represents the real meaning of father’s sacrifices toward their children. True love always produces sacrifices that make life uncomplicated.
Stempel tried to fight the pressure from his peers, but his fear overruled his judgement and he lied about what he thought the correct answer was. Not only did conformity cause Stempel the win or the loss, it also led to a dive in his fame and popularity as the smartest man alive. Toward the end of the
Syndrome usually refers to a sickness but in the context of the story, it is used to emphasize the hypocrisy of other people as seen in ‘’How easy it is to be an armchair moralist. How simple, to talk about ‘survivor syndrome’, and to shoot the messenger!’’ (P. 246, l. 23-24). While the protagonist thinks that his actions are justified since he did everything he could to ensure his own survival, people still consider him inhumane for not saving the young boy. It is supposed to point out that while humans are greedy, they are also hypocritical since they are quick to condemn each other for their actions while being unaware of their own flaws and

In addition, the two men are restricting each other, as Martin is a logical personal and Pangloss is a trick. For instance, Pangloss saw that the demise of thousands of individuals is generally helpful, however, Martin saw the passing of a couple of travelers is something agonizing. Martin has depicted that those pure must not be taken by the wrongdoing of a criminal, yet Pangloss saw that if those were not dead by the tremor then others would be in a better place. The perspective of Pangloss is unreasonable and has no proof, yet Martin's has an unmistakable confirmation that great is for one and discipline are for all that is not reasonable by any stretch of the imagination. In this way, he saw that detestable has won the fight with great as "the Villain has suffocated the rest" (Voltaire, 2015, p.59).
Throughout the story Montresor and Fortunato show that they are both very clever, but one of them becomes far more clever than the other. Characterization proves the theme that Fortunato's insults make an enemy of Montresor. Montresor becomes vindictive when Fortunato’s insults start turning towards his family. Montresor’s family motto is no one punishes him and gets away with it (Fields). This gives reason to believe that honor dictated that Montresor avenge the insults Fortunato laid at his feet.
This neurological disorder completely transforms the way Jack experiences life; he has to come up with strategies that allow him to recognize people, even his own parents, while simultaneously keeping it a secret. This veneer of confidence and indifference stems from Jack’s fear of being exposed. Accordingly, he lives his life by “[doing] whatever it takes” to give people what they want; “anything to keep from being the prey” (Niven 2). Jacks prosopagnosia coupled with societal pressures and expectations lead to an invented pompous personality that clouds his true empathetic and moral character. Prosopagnosia is Jack’s greatest insecurity; he goes through measures of misfortune and embarrassment just to keep this matter a secret.
Not to mention, the courage to disregard others’ opinions and not let it have a bearing on someone. August had to constantly fight the stares and rude comments for the way he looks. His personality is not any less attractive, and people should not see him as less worthy because he is, in fact, a funny, considerate, and brilliant boy. Of course, it also packs a valuable message that kindness and love triumphs all; “always choose to be kind” because one’s words and actions can severely affect someone. He marches on despite getting upset by other comments.
The obvious display of decaying family values is just one of the many challenges Haffner describes through the lives of these boys. His perspective from below depicts a narrative that often goes unheard when looking back on history. Even though Haffner’s view may have been lacking in regards to women, it is clear that his interpretation of Weimar Germany, and its stereotypes, were well known to all members of society. The view from below, while sometimes flawed, depicts the rawest and most troubling aspects of history. It is imperative that future historians continue to look at stories and novels such as this in order to gain a better understanding of ordinary, everyday marginalized citizens and their
It is clear that living in abusive households usually increases the chances of the victims also lashing out later in life (Finkelhor, David, et al. 747) Moreover, rather than being the protector of the family, Peter’s “Fool” persona results in him coming up with idiotic and dangerous schemes, most of which are meant to satisfy his whims. Things usually go wrong, and he has to rely on others to extricate himself from his mess, which is unlike the typical portrayal of a father, who makes the right decisions, which are usually for the betterment of his family, rather than for the satisfaction of selfish whims. Therefore, it is clear that Peter Griffins subverts the portrayal of a typical American
