“Shakespeare is like mashed potatoes, you can never get enough of him.” (176) This is one quote that is a good example of how literature adds to reality. Many of us read for the same reason similar to why Frank does. Books can take us back in time to history, the future, and even another universe. “Is there anyone in this class that comes from a rich family with money galore to spend on shoes? There are no hands.” Poverty, and financial issues are major points that the world tries hard to fix.

Walter is a man of many comments but a good quote to represent what his two cents might sound like can be found in act one scene one in the playwright A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry.
The common folk are made to “move / the stones of Rome to rise and mutiny” because of Antony’s enunciation (Shakespeare 230-231). At first glance, Antony mentions this only to provide a dissimilarity between himself and Brutus, claiming Brutus would have advocated for these acts. But Antony has a deeper meaning to this phrase, one that the plebeians latch onto and use as their rallying cry. By making this the last words he delivers on this topic, this phrase subliminally pushes his audience to revolt. This is because these plebeians are like children, they do the exact opposite of what they are told, only remember information for small periods of time, and are easily swayed.
Chapter Sixteen The Search for Everlasting An hour later we were following Sawdust Brains back down the hall, up the elevator, and into the colorful room. I sat down in a chair to the right of Ping-Pong. He looked at me with bloodshot eyes and heaved a heavy sigh. “Uh-oh, someone is a little pouty,” he said. “Would you like some breakfast?” I nodded and scooted a little farther away from him because, if there was one thing I had learned while watching nearly every episode of The Rockford Files, it was how to tell when someone had been hitting the happy sauce.

William Blake claims, “it is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend”. In the play Julius Caesar, Shakespeare writes about a nation built on: trust, betrayal, and patriotism. At the start of the play, Cassius accuses Brutus of not having any passion or pride in his nation. Cassius then proclaims “then Brutus, I have much mistook your passion” (Shakespeare I,ii,48).

He uses logos when saying, “When.. the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept: Ambition should be made of sterner stuff...” Marc Antony is trying to persuade his audience that Brutus calling Caesar too ambitious is false, and Caesar was no more than laid-back. This logic is effective because it helps back up this claim, and his use of it here does that by acting as supporting evidence. He is saying if Caesar would have been ambitious, he
“To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; credible we must be truthful” is what Edward R. Murrow says about what persuasiveness is and how it is effective (“Persuasive” 1).

In Antony’s speech, a sentimental appeal is used in order to persuade the Romans by manipulating their emotions to feel pity for Caesar.
