Peter and Toohey are both affected by the events in their past, meanwhile Roark stays unchanged throughout the entire book. Everybody faces conflict in keeping their individualism, but what separates them, are the ones who stay unaffected from these obstacles. Achieving absolute individualism is almost impossible when one is completely surrounded by others. However, Howard Roark never changes his values or his actions off anyone else 's point of view. In order to do this, one must “recognize his need of a moral code.”(Source 4, The Virtue of Selfishness, ix) Rand argues that by doing this, it sets an easy to follow set of rules that is not to be broken.
Nick always admire his father, one of the things Nick’s father passed along to him was "Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven 't had the advantages that you 've had" (1.2). Nicks parents though him not to show off what he has and always think
One piece of advice he offers is he, “can talk with crowds and keep your virtue” then you will be a man. Kipling’s advice to his son is to always stay true to who you are and to never put your beliefs at risk just because it’s not the popular decision. All of our choices
Wesley’s compassion, strong moral code, and sense of duty are something that anyone can look up to and aspire to be like. Finally, Wesley is a good father to David. Wesley is very protective of David and tries to shield him from the events that are going on in Bentrock: “If there’s any trouble and I’m not here, you run for Len. Understand? Get Len” (Watson 106).
He never stressed over what was going ahead around him; he only agonized over himself and needed everything to go his direction. William Wallace acknowledged unpleasant situations on the grounds that he made him feel invited and content with himself. A percentage of the fights he had were ones that helped individuals live more secure and not need to stress over another person returning to upset their towns. His primary center was to help other people win the fights and help other people experience their lives and spare the lives of their relatives. Amid the film “Braveheart” I don't generally see anybody that opposed the change the most.
Private Doss refusing to take a gun into combat was very dauntless. Private Doss was called a conscientious cooperator, meaning that he knew what he was doing, however, he continued to do it because he believed that what he was doing was right. Also, due to his past experiences, refusal of a weapon meant not killing anyone. One thing he said was, “With the world so set on tearing itself apart, it don’t seem like such a bad thing to me to wanna put a little bit of it back together” in which he was talking about how his desire was to save those people fighting for him and even some of the people that were trying to kill him. (Gibson) This leads to another good quality which is desire to want to see change, but not just any change.
He is very sociable, and desires to talk to everybody rather they want him to or not. I am glad I helped him understand that if somebody does not want to talk to him or find him funny, it does not exactly mean that they did not like him. He seemed to need the assurance from an external source. W- I would have to say that my weakness is that I did not want to talk to him when I first met him. These were my own insecurities as I did not want to cause a disruption in him.
Kj has always been a wild spirit. When told he could not do something, he did it anyways. When told he would not amount to anything, he proved to all who doubted him that he could do it. When told that something is dangerous, he would go for it anyways, because to him, it was better to try then to wonder “what if”. He has been through so much in his life that would drag a lot of people down and cause them to stop trying, but he never gave up.
She obviously did not like that and yelled at Atticus, but Atticus did no get upset and just walked towards the window calmly waiting for his chance to talk again. He was also extremely calm when Mr. Ewell said, "Too proud to fight you n****r lovin bastard', Miss Stephanie said Atticus said 'no to old' (he) put his hands in his pockets and strolled on" (217). This shows that he does not care what other people think. Although he does care what his children think. This quote is telling the reader that Atticus does not want to start anything, nor does he want to do something not worth his while.
One student stood on the back of the main group after the walk said that he seldom complained anything because that didn’t do anything good to him and others. He just kept an optimistic attitude toward the difficulties in life. The other student stand in front of the main group after the walk said that he didn’t think anyone should stop working hard just because of the privilege he had. It was so inspiring to hearing from all the positive views from my peers. When life become stressful, I tend to complain to my friends and family to relief the stress, but after hearing from my classmates, I realized that I should stop complaining and always hold a positive attitude toward
They look like friends on the outside, but true best friends do not single each other out. They also do not let each other be alone and go through hard situations on their own. They do not get to a point of jealously that they can’t even think of anything else. Best friends do not get to the point where they forget all the memories, and think what everyone else does. Amir shows this in his line, “ He was just a Hazara, wasn’t he?” (Hosseini 77) This quote is really the quote that crosses the line.
Like Rowdy he will try to look resilient especially in front of his family, which is absolutely normal. However, he doesn’t do it by being agressive. He will do it calmly and in a manner where his kids will think he is the strongest person there is. Thus, he will try to hold back his tears (p. 207). In the case where the pain is to big, he will block people away when drinking and escaping.
When it comes to authority, most people are silent rebels. “‘You’ve got everything to lose from this, Atticus. I mean everything.’ ‘Do you think so?’”(Lee 18). Atticus is not a loud man but he is someone that should not be crossed. Atticus knows what he does and does not like, the same goes for his children although they are more forceful about it than Atticus.
