His delivery skills, were good, but not great. He has great vocal projection, composure, and body movement. Although, the only negative impression was his eye contact. He was reading off his paper a lot, but I think his vocal projection made up for it.
Ender does make a few really close friends because of the seclusion since he has a lot of free time, but very few friends to share his feelings and affection with. He also learns how to rely on no one for aid through his harsh loneliness which was actually the primary goal of Graff. In fact, “Graff [isolates] Ender to make him struggle” (Card 205) and prove he is better than everyone else, emotionally and physically. The struggles that Ender face allow him to win respect and love from his peers as he is always getting better and stronger from these difficulties. It is also noted that the hurdles turned him into a better soldier, too.
People try to conform so that they blend in instead of being isolated. That being said, do people coincidentally happen to follow others, or do they intentionally try to conform. In Let It Enfold You Charles remarks on how he is very isolated from other people, but he really was not. For example: Charles was not the only one infused with anger, he notices that other people are full of “hatred” and “glossed over with petty grievances” (Bukowski 2). This signifies that even if he is separating himself from others, he is not the only one doing so.
Though if I had to choose from Brutus and Cassius I would have to say the Brutus is my favorite. I really don’t know how you can not like Brutus, he seems like a all around great guy. He is very kind and a big hearted person and he doesn’t know how to put himself first. I hope that whenever people think of me they see a little bit of Brutus because I don’t know how good I do but I try to put everyone first whenever I can and be as kind as possible. If you don’t want to be like Brutus I think you’re crazy because he’s just an exceptional
They must recognize that not all virtù is good and that not all vices are bad because the complexity of the human condition (Machiavelli, 33). Machiavelli states that most people see princes as having either good or bad traits. They see them as black or white, free spending or misery, generous or grasping, merciful or cruel. These dualities however are not necessarily good or bad and they can both be present at times. He says that it is dangerous to be a free spending prince even though it seems like a virtù.
Robert literally can’t see, but he does obtain vision only on a deeper level. The narrator isn’t too enamored with the idea of another man coming to his home. He is insensitive and makes some harsh comments that make Robert feel a little uncomfortable. Due to his callous and unsympathetic personality, the narrator is never able to connect with his wife while Robert is instantly able to. Robert comes to visit the narrator and his wife at their home for the first time.
Comparatively, Gawaine le Cœur-Hardy and I can both find similarities when it comes to laziness. He’s afraid of getting hurt, so he refuses to
This strait is identified when the narrator says, “Sam smiled rarely, but when he did he showed a set of gold teeth that matched his gold-rimmed glasses. He rarely spoke, but when he did his voice had the raspy quality of sandpapers rubbing together.” This shows that Sam wasn’t a social individual, because he would rarely demonstrate social practices such as smiling to other people and talking to people.
To cope with this Griffin wanted to surround himself with his work, this is seen when he expresses, “‘...but, as a rule, I like to be alone and undisturbed’”(Wells 13). For most people being alone is not ideal, but that is all Griffin wanted. From his point of view the world is a cruel place where very few people
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
In the beginning of the year I believe i had a strong enough command on English conventions but definitely with room for improvement. In my opinion, the assignments that most exemplified the assessment of English conventions, as well as reading and writing, were the Zeitoun and 1984 long compositions. Take for example my first sentence from the Zeitoun long comp, “Human nature is a fickle thing, no one person being perfect”. That sentence isn’t awful, and technically isn’t grammatically incorrect, but it seems a little awkward and stilted. Thanks to Mrs. Provost and her lesson on colons and semicolons, I’ve learned that a more natural replacement for that sentence could be “Human nature is a fickle thing: no one is perfect”.
Throughout part two in the book, I’ve noticed that he always makes himself seem he is better than others. He makes others feel very low. He butters everyone up, and proves that he is the one sensible soul who determines what type of talent they have. I disagree with this quote as it is contradicting with my personal beliefs. I believe happiness is very important in life.
Significant Quote: Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, “Young Goodman Brown,” Goodman Brown refuses to travel no longer with the Old Man and he responds, ‘“...when you feel like moving again, there is my staff to help you along” (40). This quotes demonstrates the inevitable loss of innocence. Goodman Brown at first refuses, but does use the staff―which earlier in the story was shaped like a snake―because he was convinced that Faith had turned evil. The Old Man is the devil and he bargains with a counterfeit spiritual power and gives Brown the choice to take the staff and therefore give his life to him.
