She’ll not die with me just standing there. And as for you— your eyes will never see my face again. So let your rage charge on among your friends who want to stand by you in this.” (Lines 871-875) Haemon is torn between loyalty to his father and his love for Antigone, but in the end decides to follow his heart and turn on his father in order to make an attempt to save Antigone.

He loves Big Daddy and to tell him the news while he is on his death time would leave Brick to the thought of Big Daddy dying in disappointment through his son. Denial through himself is the hardest fight to win, and Brick is losing. He denies himself for the sake of others trying to please everyone around him instead of taking it and making himself happy. He does not want to feel the disappointment through his family, and he does not want to break Maggie 's heart. All the denial makes life harder than what it should be, and makes one and more people unhappy.
209-211). In this scene, Creon is arguing with his son, who does not believe Antigone has to die for disobeying his father, but Creon is so power hungry he is willing to suppress anyone who is against him, even his son’s fiance. Good people suffer, because rulers like Creon are ruthless tyrants, they are power hungry and will not listen to anyone who disagrees with their
The paragraph goes on to describe Pete’s brother Donald as becoming “deeper in debt to Pete” when he was unable to find work. Most readers decide at this point that Pete is obviously the “rich brother” because of what the author has revealed. This far into the story, the author has not clearly defined his definition of who the “rich brother” is yet; that is why the stereotypical interpretation this far is to believe he is implying that Pete is the one mentioned in the title.
But Luther continued to show heroism and continued his work. On January 3, 1521 Pope Leo II excommunicated Luther. The pope’s reasoning for this was for Luther not stopping his teachings. (Althus 236) this was a very big deal due to the fact that it meant you were a sinner and were to be shunned. In the winter and spring of 1521 Luther was brought before a diet and was given a chance to repute his teachings.
Both walk in the same path of power; princes of their countries. Both experience the same dilemmas; uncles who come to be in control of the throne by means that are not acceptable. Hamlet has the nagging feeling of revenge that is carried with him throughout the entire story and ultimately leads to his clashing at the end. However, Fortinbras has the feeling of want and cannot wait to be king. Towards the beginning, Fortinbras army almost started a war to claim land back that was rightfully theirs, but since he wasn’t the king yet, more or less, he got his hands slapped.
Prideful because all he tries to do is chance Doodle rather than letting him be who he is . Not letting himself accept himself the way he is.

MAturity allowed Huck to find himself and understand what he morally wants. We come from seeing Huck enjoy and find racism as a daily task to becomming outraged at the sight of his dear friend Jim becomming locked up. || Huck(whom is a teenager) who is morally developing, also very inteligent and even wealthy (like 6k).

Ralph putting his foot down and being stricter, “because [he’s] chief,” just causes them to disagree with him more. Because Ralph’s attempt at forming a democracy fails, he tries to be more controlling, but this just further causes the boys to disobey him and forget about the goals that are the most important for them all. Because Ralph is not able to successfully establish a direct democracy or convince the boys to be interested in the common good, as Rousseau believes is necessary for a functional society, the result is that Jack seizes power to form his own tribe of savagery, the boys fall into corruption, and the general will is completely lost. Thomas Hobbes’ view on human nature is more pessimistic, arguing that humans are intrinsically evil and should allow strong governments to keep them from descending into violence (Robison), a view that seems to mirror Goulding’s. Because the boys eventually stop accepting Ralph as their leader, the power-hungry Jack takes over and the island falls into a state of chaos.
Good residency is about having the power to ask someone to do something, but not necessarily exercising it. Impoliteness if the Mildew of mankind, Eddie’” (32).

This not only shows his blatant disregard for Eddie’s desires and his lust for money, but also displays his lack of faith in his son.

Peter’s Basilica. Like his earlier peers that stood for a Church reformation, Martin Luther disagreed with the selling of indulgences and wrote the immediately popular 95 Theses, mainly attacking the misuse of German money and the Pope’s control over Purgatory. He argued that the letters Paul writes to the Greek Churches in the Book of Romans emphasised “the just shall live by faith” alone, instead of relying on financial transactions that would guarantee a person’s cleansing from sin. According to the New Testament, Jesus had came to Earth to die for all of humanity’s sins, and to put a monetary price to salvation would demean the significance and sacrifice He had done out of grace alone. Luther went on to question the Church, reasoning if Christian practices had came to be corrupted, then it was possible its teaching were as well.
