Kids are not capable of understanding that leaders are allowed to have flaws and weaknesses. “...piggy was an outsider, not only by his accent, which did not matter, but by fat, and ass-mar, and specs and certain disinclination for manual labor.” (p. 65). Rejection of Piggy and his brilliant leadership gave rise to the “savage” hunters under Jack Merridew leadership and made the life of all boys very
Into The Wild was a tremendous story which Shaun Callarman did not have many positive things to say about Chris McCandless, the main character. He went on this adventure to find out what life is all about in his own eyes. He wanted to see how different living in the wild really was compared to society because he was not satisfied with his living arrangements and household. Shaun’s quote says that he thinks “Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time. He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.
Though he may be ridiculously unintelligent and emotionally unstable, he had a burning passion for justice and making things right. No matter how many people he had accidently killed, he always made it right by doing more and more good deeds. He was constantly working to become the best man he could. Though he couldn’t think properly, he was a man of his word. Hercules and Theseus both did great deeds, but Hercules just achieved more because of his strength.
“My father had been a vaquero all his life,” (2). Gabriel only knew how to be a vaquero and did not want to give up his lifestyle until Antonio came into the world then he and Marie decides that Gabriel give up his lifestyle in exchange for finding better place to raise their family. But that did not mean Gabriel giving his dream to explore the Illano. “My father’s dream was to gather up his older sons and move westward to the land of the setting sun (14)”. The move and along with his older sons going to war made Gabriel sad and fearful of not accomplish his dream so he soon found hope in liquor to wash away the pain but it only fueled his rage.
OMAM At the end of the book Lennie killed curly’s wife, by snapping her neck. All because he wanted her to be quite. He didn’t mean to, he just didn’t know his own strength because of his mental illness it keeps him from knowing reality. So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did.
It is not his decision that we commit these sins but it was already written and that is why our fate is already destined for us because as much as we would want to change but maybe changing is already written in our fate that's why there are people who feel are fated into doing change for the better but it could always be there trickster side because some forms of evil in the world today is tricking and lying such as in the “epic of gilgamesh” when humbaba tried to turn against his master because he was defeated in battle and he cried for help from the gods but he already finished his purpose in life and that was his
This guy wants to talk about it, but he can’t….” Bowker feels that he has lost a sense of purpose because of the war; he no longer has drive or ambition and this can be contributed to the horrific images and situations he experienced during the war. For O’ Brien, the war signified the death of his pride. He did not want to go to the war at first, but because of outside influences and the fear of possible consequences, he chose to go despite his beliefs. For these soldiers, death happens to more than just physical
In addition, Atticus went against his moral code and principles he had always upheld before, especially in the Tom Robinson trial. Now, Atticus is faced with the decision of abiding by the law or breaking it in order to do the right thing. He knew that incarcerating a man, as withdrawn and solitary as Arthur would have been unforgivable. Especially, after Arthur had performed a great deed by saving his children 's life. He knew that exposing him would be an awful way of repaying him; it would have been like "shooting a mockingbird."
They also felt a sense of sorrow after Lennie’s death although we at the same time feel relieved that he was killed by a true companion versus an enemy. George made the decision of putting a “[...] muzzle [...] close to the back of Lennie’s head” (Steinbeck 106). Lennie and George tried to achieve happiness, but met some obstacles on the way, changing their ability to reach their dreams. Other characters and the harsh time period affected their mindset and their dreams. Therefore, their goals can’t be met.
Tim said “ I would kill and maybe die- because I was too embarrassed not to”. He was not proud of his decision even though he thought that he made the right one then, years later after the war he viewed himself as a coward because he went to war. Although it was that shame that brought him into the war and why he was a
