The truth outlined in chapter 6 is that Listening to others, and more significantly, making the speaker feel important will help to keep the links in the verbal chain of communication connected and strong. Chapter 7 rounds out “part 2” and shows how there is an IDIOT inside every individual and how this part of us can manifest when one looses control. The texts humorous example of Mrs. Marry Sunshine” a sweet young lady def to the ugliness of the world. She has never had an vulgar word thrown her way in her entire life. Upon attending a training scenario however, her IDIOIT emerges.
People are like cameras and their personal experiences can be their lenses that change and modify the actual picture. This evident in Marjane Satrapi’s book Persepolis because the whole book is about a girl growing up, and forming her own opinions. Furthermore, Marjane has to mature in the turmoil of an Iranian-Iraqi war, she also has to survive the brutal Islamic regime governing her. This creates a very particular point of view considering that the parents raising Marjane are against the new form of government, and actively protest, risking their lives. As a result, this rubs off on her creating a very rebellious and dauntless little girl, who isn’t afraid of the new oppressors.
They claim that Katherine develops affections of appreciation and respect for Petruchio as the play goes on. Moreover, they associate Katherine’s newfound amiability and endearment to her recognition of Petruchio 's hardwork in providing for her and improving her personality. In fact, throughout the play, Katherine subtly conveys her love through slight gestures of devotion, finally manifesting all of her care for Petruchio in her final speech. After Bianca and the Widow refuse to return to their husbands in Act 5 Scene 2, Katherine’s begins her monologue, saying, “Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, thy head, thy sovereign. One that cares for thee, And for thy maintenance commits his body to pain labor both by sea and land…Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe” (Shakespeare 5.2.163-167).
Gretchen ran nearly as fast a Squeaky and proved that she wasn’t just talking. “And she nods to congratulate me and then she smiles “And I smile. Cause she’s good, no doubt about it” “We stand there with this big smile of respect between us.” Squeaky also realizes while watching Raymond run that winning isn't everything and she has a room full of ribbons, award and medals and Raymond doesn't have any so, she decides to be humble for once and retire as a champion from running and coach Raymond with the help of
Finally, although the sad stories Anne listens s the adults whisper, she digs deep to the bottom of her heart to search for the good that true people actually have. Anne describes “ Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” (263) With all the negativity and hatred surrounding her, Anne begins to alter her opinions of the evil people because she knows the
She starts off as a well-respected female in her district despite the fact she’s poor. Her hamartia of caring too much about other’s survival leads her to her downfall where she volunteers to risk her life in the Panem Games for her sister during the Reaping. Again relating back to Aristotle, her downfall has a great impact on her family because they will struggle in privation alone without Katniss to help. Even throughout the game, Katniss relentlessly sacrifices her own safety to ensure that Peeta was safe. When Peeta gets a serious wound from a sword stab, Katniss’s tragic flaw forces her to go out of hiding and obtain medicine, leading her to her downfall of almost getting killed by another
Jane Eyre: A Testament to Adversity The bildungsroman Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë underlines the necessity of adversity in one’s life. Jane’s unwarranted circumstance and discriminatory society, however unjust, proved vital for her growth. For in the end, the trials and hardships she underwent allowed her to become a person, who was neither completely controlled by her beliefs or her religion. (Benvenuto) As a child, Jane was a hardened and rebellious child, shaped by the mistreatment of her aunt Reed and cousins. Her character was reshaped by her experiences in Lockwood and her friendship with Helen Burns.
As cliché as it is, “get back on the horse that bucked you” is a crucial piece of advice to remember when struggling to surmount obstacles. These obstacles are personal barricades that we set up unconsciously based upon our fears. It may be easy to identify what we are afraid of and how to overcome it, but challenging our fears proves to be more difficult. Sometimes, we don’t even address these problems because we are subconsciously trying to avoid them such as in the beginning of The Georges and the Jewels by Jane Smiley. The main character unknowingly tricks herself into thinking that just because she continues to get thrown from her horse, it will always hurt.
After winning the race, Squeaky realizes that winning is not everything and sees things in a new light. Squeaky finds her true inner voice of her identity and personality which helps her have a revelation about the talent of other individuals such as developing a mutual respect for Raymond and making a new found friend, Gretchen. On the day of the race, Squeaky checks out her rival at the start of the race and notices that Gretchen is kicking her legs out like a pro. This sparks a newfound respect for Gretchen. “I get up and slip off my
Her innate sensitivity allowed her to be a non-conformist and see opportunities that allowed her to grow and love herself. In her article, “Me the overly sensitive child” Lamott feels that although she did not always see the advantages that her thin skin provided her, she was eventually able to use it to her advantage and gain “wisdom and self-knowledge” because of it (Web). My point in this paragraph is that Lamott used her innate sensitivity to experience everything that life had to offer and grew as a person because of it. I would back up her opportunity seeking with her participation in the women’s rights movement which allowed her to develop standards about how she would allow herself to be treated, her success in the corporate world, her openness to friendship, her time in the wilderness, and in her willingness to
The way others think of a person is an accurate way to determine the unique personality traits that person possesses because people are bad at determining their own traits due to personal bias. If every person in the Fallout Alley Youth Zone refers to Astrid as “Astrid the Genius”, she is clearly a logical person as her intelligence defines the way people view her. People are accurate at picking apart a person’s traits, and this is why Astrid is logical. Furthermore, Astrid is constantly looking for logical answers to illogical events. This is shown when she attempts to discover how to keep children from taking the “poof”, effectively killing themselves (Grant 68).
She even flirted with the cashier a little but her face went bright red. I hope she had as much fun with me as I did her. She even bought me a little thank you gift. I love spending time with Paige and wish we could spend a little more time together. We both have social anxiety and have kind of bonded over that.
