He would like to have a bath . . . a toothbrush would come in handy too. (109) He/His: Ralph Distastefully: Dislike or disgust The significance of this quote is that survival has started to become a major problem for not just Ralph but for all the boys with the same sort of situation.
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization.

He is the one, put in the book to break all the rules and bring the life of knowledge and ideas back to where they belong.

When Equality worked in his place (a dark hole in the ground from the unmentionable times) he worked on a box that made electricity when he finished it he brought it to the home of the scholars, who rejected it. This was the last straw for Equality and that’s when he lost it; “You fools! You fools!

However, the moon also carries “the first few stars,” showing that in the midst of darkness their is a glimpse of light.

According to a family member, one of the dogs was hiding underneath the bed. Baby dragged the dog by the neck outside to safety”, (KOCO Oklahoma). This quote proves that pit bulls have saved lives also, not just take them like the news says they do.

The dog suffered extreme injuries on her shoulder and her leg, which had to be amputated… and she 's now "trotting around like she 's been a 3-legged dog her entire life” (Atlantic Animal Hospital).
Thirdly, Eckles died by his own stupidity. He was a mouse getting cheese from a snap trap. He was stupid enough to talk when the group was trying to, stealthily, sneak up to a dinosaur, and he also did not help the group when they were in trouble. Although he was specifically instructed to stay on a certain path, his stupidity made him stray from it. All of these factors, though they were underscored to avoid, lead up to the death of a man.
Frankenstein appears to genuinely care for someone besides himself without weighing where it is beneficial for himself or not, which is the first time that he has done so in the novel. However, like all good things that Frankenstein tries to do, ego ruins it. Frankenstein, in his last words, tries to convince Walton to continue the dangerous quest to the North Pole; "You [are] hereafter to be hailed as the benefactors of your species" 197. Ego takes control of Frankenstein's mind for a final time. Frankenstein reverts back to the way he thought at the beginning of his story when he thought that creating the Monster would make him the creator and master of a new species.

The devastation caused by Nevado Del Ruiz was unimaginable and horrific. However, even the rescue relief made available and the government’s lack of support made the aftermath much worse for Armero. A few things that made everything much worse were: Accessing the number of survivors- because of the mudflow many people were spread throughout the town, and many were still under the mud not yet discovered (National Academy of Sciences, 2015). Along with counting the number of survivors, identifying the dead also became a serious problem, because of the lack of documents and some people were still entombed in the mud (National Academy of Sciences, 2015). Clean water became another hindrance in helping this town recover, there was a short supply for drinking but most of the town required large amount to wash off the mud from survivors and the injured (National Academy of Science, 2015).
After witnessing the horrific act, Wiesel said “the soup tasted of corpses” (Wiesel 62).Wiesel and the other prisoners could not believe their God would let such a thing happen.

As I looked out the dirt covered wet window what did I see? The window was fogging over and it was getting darker by the minute. It was dark and the stars, the moon and the weird people driving around would be the only ones who would believe me. I was frightened, there was a creature. A creature that I had never seen before.
They were not of a fire being prepared and sweat, but instead the smell of death and blood. The Signless, the most important troll in history for this moment and until his foretold death but not a moment longer, had been staring into the shadows of secrets, horrors, death and blood since some nameless blue blood had been given the honor of propping him to the jutting block. Would that he could he’d have looked somewhere beside the shadow cast by the ever growing crowd, but he could not. He did not have the courage or strength to lift his eyes and see just how much his destined failure had cost him.
I looked around, wide eyed, confused and lost. Ripples formed as I began to shake, the sweat was blending into the murky water as it never existed, the catchment becoming smaller as time went by. My screams of terror weren’t heard as the lethal chemicals attacked my fragile body. As I passed through the storage reservoir I was at content. Aggressively swirling through the main pipes, terrified towards the unknown of my distention.
