Shakespeare uses both romantic and identity crushes to show that parents should take teenage crushes seriously by providing examples of stories and lessons he put together into his plays. For example, One of his many famous plays he has created that is a great example of both romantic and identity crushes is Romeo and Juliet. A romantic crushes is formed by finding someone whom they find powerfully attractive; moreover, someone who they feel excited to be around, and with whom they want to spend a lot of time.

Thinking about the positive things in life is something that everyone needs to get through difficult

Love is unconditionally caring about someone else that you care more about yourself. Love may give us joy, and happiness, but it also brings the worse out in us. In Celeste Rita Baker’s short story Jumbie from Bordeaux, the author presents love and the price paid for love through the indirect characterization of Jumbie, his aunt, and parents. In the story the author uses courage to show the love that Jumbie had for his parents. For example, when Jumbie witnesses the harsh beating of his parents, he immediately jumps in to interfere, by attacking the master.
In her review of the book for the New Yorker, she writes “’Gone Girl’ is as much about the near impossibility of being a good husband as it is about the anguish of being a good wife” (37). This statement shows that Elif would likely be very appreciative of Nick for how he chose to stay with Amy for the good his family and child. Many readers and reviewers of the book will simply take its message as feministic or antifeminist, but Elif recognizes that the book also has a lot to say about the situations of men in regards to selfishness and sacrifices. She writes, “Where a more simplistic narrative would posit that every loss for women is a gain for men, Flynn shows again and again that nobody is a winner – everyone is a dupe”.

The embellishment of the daughter’s love by taking advantage of their father through flattery is the basis for the final quote of the play as Edgar remarks about the consequences of lies and manipulation rather than speaking from the heart. Though Regan and Goneril replied to a dramatic degree of which they love their father, Lear interrogated her by exclaiming, “What can you say to draw a third more opulent than your sisters? Speak” (Lear 1.1.87-88). Filled with power, Lear spoke to his daughters in an arrogant tone as he hinted that his inheritance is related to how much love they profess towards him. In response, Cordelia answers of nothing, beginning a string of repetition of the word “nothing” each with various syntax and punctuation to show the tension building between the father and daughter relationship.
The family's treacherous journey to Jefferson is filled with danger and excitement, yet Faulkner gives many doses of humor throughout the novel. The characters employ themselves in outrageous acts of irony, from Addie's rejection of her most devoted son, to Anse's concern with his false teeth instead of Addie's death, to Vardaman's calling his mother a fish. This irony would not have been evident if it were not for Faulkner's use of multiple narrators. Faulkner was enchanted by Freudian theories of psychology when he wrote this novel, and recounting the story through various perspectives allows the reader to understand each character's reaction. This enhanced the dark humor throughout the novel because the reader can see into each family member's thoughts on her death.
The Divine Command Theory (DCT) explains which actions are moral based on whether or not God commands it. The theory is difficult to support due to its flaws, arbitration, and even due to the essence of God. While Divine Command Theorists may completely support this theory, I will argue why the theory is impractical and cannot dictate what is morally right or wrong. In understanding if this theory holds ground we must question what God commands. Instead of uncritically accepting a theory we must put it to question and eliminate any flaws.
In his column, “Putting Grit in Its Place” (2016), David Brooks argues that “gritty people” (9) are fueled through desire and longing, but G.P.A, “the mother of all extrinsic motivations” (3), only eradicates the grit towards student’s “passionate interests” (16) and instead points it towards “joyless intonations” (5) that are done to simply “get close to that 4.0” (2) or beyond. Brooks supports his claim by appealing to the readers’ emotions through describing the strenuous lives of students and athletes who are willing to complete anything “in the most arduous way possible” (7), the author also illustrates the “unpleasantness” (6) of students having to fulfill the expectations created in our society by being “prudentially balanced about
The conclusion of the Euthyphro dilemma is that divine command theory is false. The dilemma got its name from Euthyphro, one of Plato’s early dialogues. In Euthyphro, Socrates and the eponymous Euthyphro, a priest, discuss the essence of goodness. While the work reaches no definitive conclusions about the nature of goodness, it raises many challenges to divine command theory. In what follows, I will highlight some important and/or interesting problems raised by the Euthyphro dilemma and try to show how it refutes divine command theory.
