Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
“Then he saw a blade that blooded well, a sword in her armoury, an ancient heirloom from the days of the giants, an ideal weapon, one that any warrior would envy” (1557-1560). Beowulf lack of humility for Grendel’s mom cost him this time and he has to use someone else’s sword to kill his enemy instead of his own, with who he killed huge sea creatures and Grendel. Humility nearly antagonize what courage is, but they both are equally important and go hand in hand in any super heroes life whether it’s today or during Anglo-Saxon period. Humility is an honorable trait that can be acquired only through age and
5.Jack is also a good leader but he is so power hungry it makes me feel like he’s a dictator and yes he also couldn’t be one either, but he makes me think he just wants to be more powerful than Ralph.6. Ralph is going for the most obvious goal which is, get off the island or get rescued either one will work in his eyes but he almost ends up kilt by jack in the uttermost end Ralph loses his group or followers to jack as well so Jack has become a savage killer but here’s my vision on the difference between these leaders... First off Ralph in Lord of Flies is a good leader because he seems more sane and more intelligent than Jack, Jack just wants to be the most powerful Man/person on the island and just really just wants to be number one and that his opinion, is what everyone wants to hear he’s kinda ignorant self centered just all the bossy traits as a dictator. Now ralph is better, for one reason he has his goal set this is a repeat from the intro but it’s true he wants to get off the island and in my eyes i would follow him because why
The suspect list is rather small. Even though murder is still an assumption. Richard III was a wicked uncle who wanted badly to be king. It was believed that Richard III was the only person to have a key to the tower. Moreover, the Constable of London could demand entrance at any time.
The Dragon had soon burn down Beowulf’s throne-hall to the ground and Beowulf began to plot his revenge. Beowulf had ask his iron smith to make him a mighty shield one that he hopes will stand up against the breath of flame. Beowulf could of use and army to help him kill the dragon but "He is too proud to assemble a huge army for the fight, and, remembering how he defeated Grendel single-handedly in his youth, feels no fear of the dragon." This was Beowulf pride taking control over him even though he is now and
Benjamin Franklin was a great man that had influences in many areas and because of that he had many enemies but because he understood human behavior he enabled himself to turn enemies into allies. To understand the Benjamin Franklin effect you need to know that the things you do often create the things you believe. An example is when “Franklin ran for his second term as a clerk, one of his colleagues delivered a long speech to the legislature lambasting Franklin. Franklin still won his second term, but this guy truly pissed him off. So he set out to turn his hater into a fan, but he wanted to do it without paying any servile respect to him.
Beowulf’s father, Ecgtheow, “began the greatest feuds” for killing Heatholaf, and was denied by everyone except Hrothgar for refuge (16). Hrothgar not only helps Ecgtheow earn back his honor by paying off his debt for killing Heatholaf, but he provides Ecgtheow with enough money and resources to be able to return to home. Since Hrothgar showed Beowulf’s family a great deal of hospitality and generosity, Beowulf traveled to the Danes to return the same generosity and kill the monster that had been terrorizing and killing Hrothgar’s men. The monster Grendel, gives Beowulf a way to not only pay back Hrothgar’s kind act towards his family, but also a way to restore honor to his family name and improve his heroic reputation by killing this monster that has been undefeatable for twelve
Jonas is a very courageous and studious young man. Jonas shows that he has courage when “I’m brave I really brave. I really am” (Lowry 82). The quote shows that Jonas has just been told he would be the next receiver,which means there will be a lot of pain. Jonas
For one thing, we see that Oliver is very courageous and wise, he seems at times to be smarter than Roland even. Roland is very impulsive and arrogant, he makes decisions based on emotion rather than thought. This can be seen in an exchange between the 2 of them in the beginning of the story, when emperor Charles is asking his knights who shall go fight for him; “my lord barons, who can we send to the Saracen who holds Saragossa?’ Roland replies: ‘I am prepared to go!’ ‘you certainly will not,’ said Count Oliver, ‘your temperament is most hostile and fierce, I am afraid you might pick a quarrel. If the king wishes, I am prepared to go”(lines 252-258). Oliver and Roland have a strong enough relationship that Oliver is able to be entirely honest with Roland and voice his opinions when he feels Roland is being unreasonable and unsafe.
Macbeth an ambitious and powerful man who strives for the throne and then there’s Atticus a common man who has the will to fight for justice under any circumstances. By reading these sentience’s you can sense a huge difference between the two one fights for the common good and the justice for all and the other strives for money and power which also is known as greed. Atticus looks at others sorrow and tries to get justice for them. The other strives for the throne and kills for
On June 30th, 1831 Lee married Mary Randolph Custis, the great-granddaughter of George and Martha Washington. Together Lee and Mary had seven children, three sons and daughters. Even after getting married and having children Lee stayed devoted to his military duties, while many of his Army loyalties moved him around the country, from Savannah to Baltimore, to New York, Mary stayed with their children on her father’s plantation. Lee finally got the break though he had been waiting for in 1846, when the United States went to war with Mexico. While Lee was serving under General Winfield Scott, Lee proved that he could be a brave battle commander and a very smart tactician.
He has set standards for all people that wish to be successful and do not want to be “average”. Carnegie has opened my eyes to many different ideas and ways to become the best person that I can. Success is now a goal of mine and I am driven to create a life that I do not need a vacation from. Carnegie said it best when he made this statement, “ People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” When I think about this quote it reminds me of another extremely successful man, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He said, “ The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else.
President George Washington had to be brave in order to make the bold decisions that he had to make when facing one of the worlds largest, and well put together armies of the world. While the British army had men who have been trained to fight and win, the confederate army had nothing but farmers, blacksmiths, and maybe even some bakers. Not to mention, that some of these men that were being recruited to fight along side of Washington had never even held a gun before. Yet, he was able to see things that no one else could see, he knew that there was a way to win their freedom. He knew that it was going to take time, effort, and lots and lots of training.
I feel like he is doing this pretense to show that he is a very saintly person, who speaks only greatness. Throughout part two in the book, I’ve noticed that he always makes himself seem he is better than others. He makes others feel very low. He butters everyone up, and proves that he is the one sensible soul who determines what type of talent they have. I disagree with this quote as it is contradicting with my personal beliefs.
Successfully building an empire large enough to rival the British Empire at its peak is an extremely difficult task. Steamrolling everybody you come in contact with, including themselves, takes a lot of military know how. The only people to successfully beat a Mongol army on the battlefield was another Mongol army. Thanks to their tolerance of others the Mongols had the opportunity to use their conquered people, like the Chinese, to administrate their empire. Life under the Mongols was good for religious minorities so they had little reason to revolt.
