He has always been respectful of Calpurnia. Morally, he believes that it would be wrong to fire Calpurnia and rid her of a job. Bob Ewell is an example of someone who isn't respectful. When Bob Ewell had met Atticus at the Post Office, he had just spat at him. Instead, he could have remained civil with Atticus, because he was just doing his job.
In his writing, Frank Abagnale states, “There was no pressure on me to leave, although I wasn’t happy. The situation on my dual home front hadn’t changed. Dad still wanted to win Mom back and Mom didn’t want to be won. Dad was still using me as a mediator in his second courtship of Mom, and she continued to resent his casting me in the role of Cupid. I disliked it myself.
To many people this personality would not come off as appealing, but Gatsby had fallen in love with Daisy, her uncaring personality had not bothered him, it was just something she could use to help herself get ahead in life. Like her husband Tom, they both cared about what was best for themselves. And poor Gatsby may have never mattered to Daisy at all. Thought of in harsh ways, “She’s a woman of ‘Vicious emptiness’ of ‘Criminal Amorality,’ a ‘destroyer’ and ‘femme redeemer.’” (The Problem With The
Similarly, Dounya does not marry Luzhin, who could be a very easy way out of life in poverty, because she does not truly wish to marry him. The only aspect of the money that would be a factor would be what Pulcheria Raskolnikov mentioned in her letter to Raskolnikov saying “Nor has either Dounia or I breathed a word to him of the great hopes we have of his helping us to pay for your university studies; we have not spoken of it in the first place, because it will come to pass of itself, later on, and he will no doubt without wasting words offer to do it of himself, (as though he could refuse Dounia that)”-(42). The marriage would not only be based on Dounya’s own opinion, but along with Raskolnikov’s opinion, who strongly disagrees, influences Dounya’s choice of marriage. Had Raskolnikov accepted Pyotr Petrovich with glee and befriended him as he
Perhaps if the family had kept trying to make it down, they would have and wouldn’t have needed to become cannibals. What might be worse is that they don’t seem to feel badly about their choice. They casually reveal to the boy’s parents, “All right, you rest up, get better, we ate your son.” (“Into Fat Air”) This shows existential spirit by doing what is necessary in situations and not having to experience social repercussions, or at least they don’t care what those would be. They are free to make choices, and also free to live by and defend those decisions. Whether or not the boy’s parents judged them or not does not impede the family’s ability to make that
Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective. As for Sammy, his stubbornness is shown when he quits his job. Quitting his job was a spontaneous decision he made to protect his ego. Lengel calls out “you don 't want to do this” but Sammy keeps walking (Updike 5). Sammy’s stubbornness to admit he’s wrong can be interpreted by the quotation: “It 's true, I don 't.
The appeal will help convince Ismene because no one wants to be called a traitor because it has a negative connotation. Also no one wants to let down there family. The combination of both of these bad things will create a sense of guilt inside Ismine making her feel persuaded to help out Antigone. Also while trying to persuade Ismene Antigone tries to emphasize the harsh reality to Ismine hoping that she will then change her mind. She does this by quoting Creon when he says, “No one shall bury him.
They didn't even care about going to the party uninvited it didn’t hurt their self-respect simply because they were careless people. The imagery in the “The Great Gatsby” also portrayed love. In one scene “he adjusted himself a little visibly. His hand took hold of hers, and as she said something low in his ear he turned toward her with a rush of emotion. I think that voice held him most, with its fluctuating, feverish warmth, because it couldn’t be over- dreamed.”(Fitzgerald pg.96) During this scene the level of love that Gatsby is feeling is unexplainable.
Even though one might do something that gets the other one angry, they eventually come to the understanding that they didn’t mean any harm. Right after Lennie ran away, George says, “Couldn’ we maybe bring him in an’ they’ll lock him up… He never done this to be mean (Steinbeck 97). At this point in the book, there is that much that George save Lennie. He is hoping that everyone will understand that Lennie didn't mean any harm. As they traveled together, George has noticed Lennie's issues.
