Ender has the love of Valentine, his older sister, but he also has the trait of ruthlessness of Peter, his older brother. Ender does not want to cause hurt to anyone, but when he is met with a pack of students led by the bully Stilson, Ender knows that he has to do it. At age 6 he beats Stilson until he dies, even though he does not know he is doing it at the time. Ender can be a killer like his brother. But Ender hates that quality.
It 's a shifty beast, and pursuing it is at least half the fun” (Emerson). Emerson is stating that when the people have the knowledge humans want to know how to keep and continue to learn and grow in education. Also, that other people are not going to make fun of that person because that person does not know how to do the simple goods of a job. Likewise, some people have the ability to the job but might not be equipped with the knowledge of how the job that is being told of that person to do. However, some people just need the extra help to get the job done.
Peter often enjoyed the pain and agony of Valentine and Ender when he would threaten death upon the both of them. He influenced many people not only to see things his way, but also tricked them into scheming with him, such as Valentine with the political writings. Multiple times we see Ender saying things like, “I am just like Peter. Take my monitor away, and I am just like Peter”(Card). It quickly becomes clear that Ender wants nothing to do with Peter and wishes to be nothing like him.
Ralph Waldo Emerson’s childhood and early years in ministry led to his involvement in the Antebellum Reform. Born in May of 1803, he was the son of a well-known Boston minister, William Emerson, and his wife Ruth. However, when Emerson was almost nine, his father died. Emerson grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and received his education from the Boston Public Latin School. He was accepted into the Harvard Divinity School at the age of fourteen.
After reading, Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz I have understood that although we will be at many disadvantages during our life, we just have to face it and fight through it without complaints. Alex shows this right off the bat being the best he can although going through the death of all he had left, his uncle. Alex also shows his physical adversity struggling through tough challenges and being very young for his duty but this does not affect him. Yes, fighting mental and physical adversity is hard but it is a perfect way to find yourself deep down and understanding
Ender suffered more than any other kid ever should. The I.F. should not have been so harsh on Ender. They could have taught Ender the same information, but still made him learn how to read, write, talk, and play sports. My first point is when Ender was a commander in battle school they put more pressure on him than any other student.
This statement contrasts to Chris McCandless because he had exposed himself to the harsh conditions of the Alaskan nature. The conditions were so cruel to him that they led to his death, proving that Emerson is ignorant to the dangers of nature’s conditions. Emerson may have lived a survival lifestyle in the wilderness, or he may have wrote about his experience with nature outside of his home’s walls. Either way, the natural forces he speaks about were probably extremely thrivable conditions, even if he didn’t live in them. Nature is not always kind, and sometimes fights against humans such as natural disasters might.
In the later part of the story, Edmund returns to the side of Aslan and his siblings and they forgive him for his mistakes. This quotes shows the groups compassion and forgiveness towards their sibling: “Here is your brother," he said, "and – there is no need to talk to him about what is past." Edmund shook hands with each of the others and said to each of them in turn, "I'm sorry," and everyone said "That's all right." And then everyone wanted very hard to say something which would make it quite clear that they were all friends with him again – something ordinary and natural – and of course no one could think of anything in the world to
Emerson says that “We but half express ourselves” (Emerson). At this school, students will learn how to fully express themselves and feel safe being themselves and showing people who they really are and what they can really do. He also says “We are ashamed of that divine idea which each of us represents” (Emerson). People are afraid to be themselves because of the way society put kids in a box that at this school people will have a chance to be themselves in a safe space. Cj’s school is created to make children feel safe and then they will learn how to be themselves in society instead of accepting conformity.
