Starting off with Kino. Kino was a peaceful man with a perfect family in maybe not the best environment to live in but made the best of it. Once Kino discovered the Pearl he would not give the pearl up for the world. A quotation from the book said “Juan Tomas embraced hid brother with the double embrace and kissed him on both cheeks. ‘Go with God,’ he said, and it
There are so many talks and thought which come from him are pessimistic. When he falls in love with Charlotte, he think he is incorrigible. And he gives an example about it. When he argues with Albert, he says :” The question, therefore, is, not whether a man is strong or weak, but whether he is able to endure the measure of his sufferings. The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever.
Iago makes several false promises to Roderigo and he does not expose Iago because he is desperate for love. If Roderigo exposed Iago when he said he would, a lot of misfortune would not have occurred. Therefore, Roderigo demonstrates the dark side of human nature by being jealous and unintelligent. To conclude, the dark side of human nature is demonstrated by Iago who is selfish, Brabantio who is doubtful, and Roderigo who lacks cleverness. William Shakespeare’s Othello shows how easy it is to let emotions take over one’s mind.
As Yonatan still tried to question he was intrigued by Sergei’s magical goldfish, Sergei became overprotective and killed the boy. He was just intimidated and didn't want to lose the thing he valued most. The goldfish kept him company and he had
“An irrational society is a society of moral cowards – of men paralyzed by the loss of moral standards, principles, and goals” (86) says Rand, and I feel that too far have the men in the society sunk away from moral standards, like putting their knowledge to use and expanding it, simply because they do not believe in judging others for fear of what others may see in them, especially Equality since he always abides by the strict standards with fear of the civilization itself. Equality would certainly agree with Rand’s advice, “One must never fail to pronounce moral judgement”, as Equality did by leaving the controlled society that brainwashed
In my opinion, Chi Li views the serpent’s victims as “timid” and “pitiful” (WM 333) because she thinks they lacked the proper strength and courage to bring about the serpent’s demise. She expected them to be clever, as she is, and to be unafraid to sacrifice themselves for the sake of their people. I think Chi Li’s attitude towards them is very realistic. Human beings tend their lives in a “bubble”. They recognize what is important to them, what their skills and talents are, and what they believe to be right and wrong.
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
Bledsoe symbolizes people who will step on anyone’s toes to get what they want. He had let his position of power go to his head and viewed things as either his way or the highway. When the Narrator stopped mindlessly following Bledsoe, he was basically banished. Being that Barbee is blind and he is friends with Bledsoe, he can signify how you can never really know someone. Barbee is blind to Bledsoe’s ways when no one else is around.
Fisher also made choices that impacted his whole family. Like his wife, he has been easy on Erik too. After, Erik and his friend spray paint Paul’s eyes, Mr.Fisher chooses to forget about the incident and move on. He also chose to not tell Paul the truth about his eyes because he didn’t want Paul to fear his older brother. Doing this really doesn’t help Paul because he is already terrified of his brother.
Without even a second of thought the man glimpsed at Delilah, saw what state she was in and told her he wasn’t interested, whereas the man who bought Delilah’s grandmother’s painting presumable sold to him often. Both paintings, Delilah’s one made in Alice Springs and Santa Terresa were beautiful, but the man didn’t care. This racial exclusion can be linked to how people treat Samson and Delilah at both the church and IGA. At the church, Delilah comes back to the only place she feels she could be safe or get help, after just being raped she goes there to possibly tie connections with her grandma who would always go or just for herself. Instead the priest seeing her in her condition doesn’t bother to try to help or say anything at all, he instead treats her as a menace because of her
However, she barely responds and seems to dislike the men. Dimmesdale speaks up for the family and says how God sent Pearl to the world and to Hester. He says that Pearl is both a blessings but she is also a curse. This persuades the other men and they say Hester is allowed to keep Pearl. Pearl
I 'm a pacifist, if you want to know the truth" (46). Without doubt, this exemplifies Holden’s ability to make observations. Holden doesn’t wash his face because the gore made him look tough and he likes it but he also proclaims that he’s a “pacifist”. Holden does one but says the opposite, this demonstrates Holden’s poor observation skills. Furthermore, in the novel, Holden says “I 'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life.
