When Hawthorne says “The angel and apostle of the coming revelation must be a woman, indeed, but lofty, pure, and beautiful; and wise, moreover, not through dusky grief, but the ethereal medium of joy; and showing how sacred love should make us happy, by the truest test of a life successful to such an end!” he is showing how there is no way for Hester to change her society. She should have love and joy, but instead she is faced with guilt, which leads to her downfall. Along with this, Hawthorne demonstrates how the people of Boston are actually the sinners while Hester and Dimmesdale represent the Angel and the Saint of the city. People can be seen “sinning” all throughout the novel, however people always seem to be able to simply look the other way as it has become a regular event. However, Hester’s sin has been opened to the public which in the
Women were meant to embody devotion to God through their kindness and clean conscience; they were to be pure of heart and the example of finding happiness in the heart of the Lord. Unfortunately this stigma still plays a role in society, even though women are allowed a far greater religious

Collins. Elizabeth took an opportunity of thanking her. 'It keeps him in good humour,' said she, 'and I am more obliged to you than I can express.' Charlotte assured her friend of her satisfaction in being useful, and that it amply repaid her for the little sacrifice of her time. This was very amiable, but Charlotte's kindness extended farther than Elizabeth had any conception of; its object was nothing else than to secure her from any return of Mr. Collins's addresses, by engaging them towards herself.

She works so diligently and is so kind to others that people begin to reinterpret the scarlet letter. They note that Hester is very capable, and that there is clearly goodness in her – the kind of goodness that always protects and helps people in difficult times: “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman 's strength” (Hawthorne 242). Hester believes herself capable of meeting the challenges that confront her.
The most significant cause of Anne writing this quote was undoubtedly in Anne herself. Despite pain and turmoil, heartache and fear, Anne never stopped smiling. She was a truly special girl who had a special vision that allowed her to find light in what may seem completely dark. No matter what she was going through, Anne stayed as positive as possible; her faith outweighed her fears. Anne’s inner beauty and high moral standings are mentioned numerous times in The Diary of Anne Frank.
While there is a relationship based upon trust and love in “The First Day” ,the relationship in “Sweetness” appears to have roots of guilt and prejudicial denial. The narrator of “The First Day” is very trusting and also observant of her mother. After her mother lets her use perfume she says “Because I cannot smell it, I have only her word that the perfume is there.” (Jones,27). This sentence shows the audience that the narrator does not need solid evidence of the perfume’s smell to believe it is there because she has her mother’s word for it, which she trust immensely. The narrator is also very protective of her mother, which can be read as an sign of affection.
However, upon talking to Teresa, Lena finds out that they yell at each other so much because Teresa can be reckless, and her mother cares about her well being. Says Lena, “‘Won’t she be mad when she finds you?’ ‘Nah, she’ll just be glad I’m not dead or something’”(114). . In observance of this situation, Lena begins to wonder how Teresa thinks of her. She says: “Maybe she had listened through the walls and heard nothing, the stagnant silence of our unhappy house” (114).
It requires deliberate engagement with difference, outspoken loyalty to others, and proactive protection in the breach. You have to choose to step off the faith line onto the side of pluralism, and then you have to make your voice heard (xix).

• The Rhetorical Tool that I choose on page 229 on my textbook is “Appeal to Value”; however, “Appeal to Need” would work to on my persuasive essay too. The results is that “Appeal to Value” I can express with my own support with sympathy, mercy, etc… in another words I can have the power or the ability to attract, interest, amuse, or stimulate the mind or emotions or the readers, because my persuasive essay will talk about precise meanings or important topics that the reader will like to know what is going on; in the other hand, I understand that we need to choose one rhetorical tool, but I think that “Appeal to Need” is another way to persuasive the readers on the need and the urgent of this matter; for example, the urgent and the obligation
Some believe their physical or mental illnesses are inflicted upon them purposefully by God, because they have done wrong in the eyes of the Lord. Therefore, these individuals “felt that God was punishing them, had deserted them, or did not have the power to make a difference, or felt deserted by their faith community” (Koenig, 2009, p.287). Therefore, they conclude that God is angry with them, and they deserve the punishment. They may feel shunned or neglected by God. Many believe that as a result of this, God will not heal their mental illness through any form of religious therapy.
