Bob Ewell tried to kill Jem and Scout first of all. Bob hurt Jem bad enough for Atticus to ask “do you think he is dead?” Even though Boo Radley came to the rescue of the kids he was still wrong for going after them. He should not have even tried to go after the kids, they are little and they had nothing to do with what happened to him or what he did to Mayella. He thought it was going to turn out the other way with Scout and Jem lying dead under the tree but it turned to be him lying dead under the tree.
and if poverty was nonexistent things would have been different for them. In the story Lamar Loper’s First Case the moral of the story was that money can make all the difference in someone’s life. This is because when Lamar came out of college he had to take up lower pay level cases and ended up with a man beating his wife and kid. Lamar could not believe people like this existed in the world and the only reason Simmie continued to do what he did was because his wife and son did not have the money to just up and leave.

When people finally achieve there revenge it most likely won’t deliver any satisfaction. Revenge have always affected people actions, people suffering, and decisions afterwards. Revenge is the action of imposing harm on someone. Most people will evaluate their options and make there rational decisions. However, according to Hamlet, a book that speak about it character revenge.
Revenge is out of hate and anger, when you want revenge you’ll do anything to get it. Revenge doesn’t solve anyone’s problems because when an individual gets revenge on another individual, that person is going to retaliate and want revenge too; it’s just an ongoing cycle of hatred and anger. An example of this is in the movie John Q, in this movie John Q the father of Michael, comes to find out that his son has a serious heart condition and the family isn’t wealthy enough to pay for the procedure. As his son gets sicker and sicker John Q made as much money as he could, he soon became desperate. John Q wanted revenge on the hospital, because they didn’t put his sons name on the transplant list for a new heart.
This quote conveys the theme because once you let something take over, you’ll never, realize all the damage that you have done to yourself or others around you. During his life, he wasted it in the pursuit of the destruction of the creature and in turn, the creature destroyed everything Victor loved, including Elizabeth. Both their life was wasted away by the destruction of hatred and the damage they wanted to do to one another, they could have forgave and moved on, but didn't make that choice until it was the
With most gladiators owned by trainers they had to sign a contract that if they broke a trainers rule they would be killed without flinching. Some trainers had skilled fighters that won them much money, but for their to be a victor there had to be many defeated. If defeated in combat the spectators would usually decide if they were to live or die. If the spectators were in merciful mood they waved their handkerchiefs for life, but if they desired the death of the conquered gladiator they turned their thumbs downward for death.
Therefore, everyone goes through stress. Anything that requires a mental effort and causes over thinking, nervousness and anxiety is a stressor. Based on the article “Turning stress into an asset” written by Gallo (2011), stress is an inevitable part of life. Though, the effects of stress upon us is controllable. Nordqvist (2015) in his article “What is stress?
Yet gladiators did not have any other choice as the value of their own life takes precedence over that of someone else 's. The mental drain of being a gladiator must have been immense and those who could not handle it would have been quickly killed, because those who hesitate about hurting someone on the battlefield would eventually meet someone who would not hesitate and take their life in an instant. This is a crude concept, that over time these men would become so used to bloodshed that they lose their appreciation for human life. Once someone loses that appreciation are they still human?
Even though this stories are classics and they teach valuable lessons. They also show humankind to be afraid of one another, for example we have Odysseus who killed everyone just because they tried to marry his wife. Even though he was presumed dead for many years and they were not even that ignorant to him when he appeared as a beggar. In the heat of the moment he slaughtered a vast quantity of unarmed men. These men did nothing to offend him, but they sought to marry a widow.

Everyone thought they were irresponsible and uncaring, hard people. Bob was the best buddy I could have asked for and after his death, I felt hatred and revenge towards all greasers. When I read in the newspaper about how Ponyboy and Johnny saved them kids I was held in awe. I’m not saying socs are good people but it would take a lot of courage and guts to run into a burning building for people you didn’t even know. I don’t think many people, including
Nowadays it is too expensive for just one parent to support the family, a household usually has two people who make the money to survive. In these cases many children are neglected and lonely because their parents are working all the time or they are just simply too tired to pay attention. This constant neglect can cause kids to act out for attention causing them to do some erratic actions. Author Scott Anderson in article Greg Ousley Is Sorry for Killing His Parents. Is That Enough?
I think the whole lesson of this book was that violence was bad because every time someone fought it ended really badly. This book showed that even though violence seems easy and, you can easily sort things out with a fight it will come with worse consequences. The greasers always fought, and the Socs always jumped but in the end we saw how both of these resulted in two deaths, and a bad fire. In the end both the socs and greasers both realized that fighting was bad, and throughout the book we see ponyboy question why he fights. Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different.
