Even though a god detests him, Odysseus never gave up or fall in despair, instead, every strike and hit makes him even more determined to get home. Odysseus is lost, trying to find his way back home. Isn't that sometimes just like us? It’s a simple thing to pine for: finding your way back but yet it is so hard. Odysseus may be a hero, but he, like us, is a human and there are flaws and that makes us imperfect.
This story relates to the quote by Robert Griffin, “Hard work beats talent any day, but if you’re talented and work hard, it’s hard to beat.” This quote relates to the story because, when Lupe was talented, and coached herself, practiced harder than anyone I know, and was kind to her rivals, she won the championship without bragging. Woulded you want to be like Lupe. Wouldn't you want to be the role model that is smart, determined, hard working, and
Still his greatest challenge was ahead; Mutsuhiro “the Bird” Watanabe. Under his reign Louie would be pushed past his breaking point, humiliated, and beat, but still stay true to himself. “Of all the violent and vile abuses that the Bird had inflicted upon Louie, non had horrified and demoralized him as this did. If anything is going to shatter me, Louie thought, this is it” (Hillenbrand 291). Louie was taken off work duty because his is injured, but begs for a job so he can keep a higher food ration.
Out of all the warnings he has received, the ones he truly felt were true were Calpurnia’s dream and the discovery of the beast without a heart. Another reason why caesar didn’t take the warnings seriously, although everyone loyal to him did is his arrogance. Caesar was very arrogant and this is shown through the way he speaks, which is always in the third person. Caesar’s ignorance and Caesar’s arrogance were the leading causes of his demise. Had he come to his senses earlier, and not let his arrogance get in the way of his safety, Caesar may have lived longer than he
The reasoning behind General DeWitt for this command was because the Japanese race was an “enemy” (p.346). However, with so much discrimination against all Asian Americans, they still persevered and it is inspiring to see how individuals such as the Chinese Americans still motivated their children to gain an education. This strength and bravery can also be seen in literary works such as Edith Maud Eaton’s, “In the Land of the Free”, and in Chien-Chi Chang’s artistic work such as his portfolio, “USA. 1990s. New York’s Chinatown”.
He was in the National Guard, and left his girlfriend Rae behind to serve his country. He knew it was a hard decision, leaving her behind. Ronnie worse a watch at all times, and got the same watch for Rae that would beep at the same time as his, so she could always remember him. Being in the military many people do not realize that they experience terrific things that cause a lot of emotional, and physical damage. Due to Ronnie experiencing anxiety, it started to affect him psychologically that the National Guard ended up realizing him, because he was not able to think correctly delaying him from his
No not really because he should have never gotten that sentencing in the first place. So that leaves me thinking about how much racism there was back than. And how much our society has been more and more welcoming to black people and other racist, but we will never be perfect and there will always be racism in our world no matter what. Which makes me sad. But also happy for the bright future ahead and how much I think we will
Pearl serves as a symbol of Hester's passion. Although it may seem like the world has crashed down on Hester, she remains strong for herself and Pearl. Towards the beginning when Pearl is very young and the aspect of Hester's sin is still in full swing, it was hard for Hester to stay as strong as she did. Many things turned Hester away but as the story continues so does Hester's love and passion for Pearl. She grows stronger and realizes that Pearl is a symbol of passion and represents her life choice and that it isn't so bad, Hester dealt with it and made the best of it.
Odysseus is also acutely aware of his surroundings especially for an illusion, for example, the island with the sirens singing. Even if these were warnings from the gods and goddesses themselves, he would still learn and remember what to do the next time he encounters these problems in his life. Lastly as I mentioned before, a hero must always show mercy to their foe no matter how bad they are. But Odysseus doesn’t show any mercy to his enemies, not even his own when they disrespect his honor and pride. A real hero doesn’t kill even if their honor and pride has been torn to shreds, yet Odysseus killed all those suitors because they were ransacking his house and eating his goods.
I know others might feel differently but in this essay I give my reasoning on why I believe that Americans are brave, welcoming, and judgmental. A lot of Americans are very brave. They endure things but tend to not care and still try to be their own individual selves. “ Sitting there, with his eyes almost shut from his beating, making another American flag.” (McCain pg.7) This is a great example of an American who is brave. Even though, he was beaten in an inch of his life for having the flag in his shirt, he still decided that he wanted to have the American flag still close to him while he was imprisoned, so he risked getting another beating and sewed it in his shirt again.
While Kennedy was helping survivors back to the PT after it was cut in half by a Japanese destroyer, Harris said that he would not be able to keep going. Kennedy told him to stop complaining and “Harris made it all right and didn’t complain anymore” (Hersey 2). This interaction shows that problems are not always as impossible as they appear but they can seem worse than they are if one complains. Furthermore, physical endurance is vital when attempting to survive in a dangerous situation. Becoming tired makes a person more inclined to cease trying.
In conclusion, it can be said that George 's reasons for ending George 's life were enough to do so since Lennie was a very dependent person and could not stand alone. George tried to help him at all times as far as he could, but still Lennie was still in serious trouble, that 's precisely the reason why George wanted to prevent Lennie suffering in the future because he realized that he could not live alone. However, no one has the right to end a person 's life, no matter what the reasons for it. A person 's life is individual and
