(Chapter 2 page 95). The quote implies that once you do something, it cannot be in one’s control to stop an event from happening. The course of events plays out, which cannot be tampered with, no matter how we try to set things right. The murderers cannot prevent their inexorable fate of death for their actions. When Smith is in Mr. Clutter’s home, he says “I didn’t want to harm the man.
They are no longer a part of us. But why let our standards down, why fall below our humanity and cause pain to the criminal’s family. Although he might’ve not had remorse for the person he killed, we shouldn’t be the one to punish with death. It’s absolute cruelty to let the person know when will it be their last day. I’ll never have sympathy for a criminal who has murder an innocent, but let us remember we are no better if we do the same.
And the gentle friends, Let’s kill him boldly, but not wrathfully.” (2. 1. 171-172.) He may call out for the murder of Caesar but he asks them to not kill him with anger or resentment. He claims his reasoning behind this is so that the plebeians will not see their actions as evil or misconstrue their intentions. The real reason, however, is that Brutus does not believe killing his friend is the right thing to do, but if it benefits the country and saves them from an evil tyrant then it is the correct course of action no matter his feelings.
Loyalty or justice? Which would you choose? Loyalty means to stay true to the people you love and helping them no matter what. While justice means to stay on the law side, you choose to stay out of trouble. If your friend killed someone, like in the book The Outsiders, would you help them run away or turn them in.
A lot of people fail trying to achieve their happiness. Readers feel emotional during Lennie’s death. When using pathos, readers can feel sad about his death, knowing that the American Dream can not be achieved for him. Pathos can bring out emotions in readers. They also felt a sense of sorrow after Lennie’s death although we at the same time feel relieved that he was killed by a true companion versus an enemy.
Death is something we all must face one day and most people would not equate humor with this occasion - yet some apparently do. In some cultures there are tombstone epitaphs and obituaries that are unintentionally, and sometimes, intentionally amusing. It is true that humor is a foreign element in dealing with death and dying but it can help everyone who is involved in death bear the unbearable. The world’s only “jollytologist” A. Klein states: “Death-based humor can a) provide relief for our anxieties about death; b) help us to cope with the death of others and c) ease the stress that often surrounds grief.” G. Mikes points out: “Laughing at death gives us triple pleasure: 1) the pleasure of the joke itself; 2) the malicious joy of laughing
When Brutus was taken to see Cassius’ dead body, he very clearly said, “Friends, I owe moe tears / To this dead man than you shall see me pay” (Shakespeare 649). He said this to keep it a secret that he is miserable about Cassius’ unfortunate death. He never wanted to tell anyone how he was feeling in order for the soldiers serving under him to have someone strong, noble, and brave to look up to. Being depressed wasn’t a part of their criteria.
Another example of Public vs. Private punishment is when... Again, she is on the scaffold and has to be Humiliated publicly. Although internally she was dealing with the fact that the father. Dimsdale the father was present at Hesters "punishment" and he even spoke up and asked who the father was, this shows that Dimsdale was feeling guilty. Hester wouldn’t say who the father was because she still loved Dimsdale and didn’t want him to get in trouble.
However, the reason this scene is happening is because we have such a fear of death that most of us refuse to stop for it. However, as the courteous gentleman that death is kindly stops for the speaker in the poem to show that death isn’t so bad. Another example is “And I had put away My labor and my leisure too, For His Civility” (569).
They also state that it should be legalized because patients have the right to decide their own future. The doctor should not refuse a patient his rights; therefore, people who are for assisted suicide believe it is ethical because it is by the patient’s will. If a patient requests death, the doctor has no right to deny their will. People who agree with assisted suicide also claim that life does not depend on quantity, but quality. Even though this way of thinking seems rational, there are serious drawbacks that come with
I view Chris’ tragedy as what it was, an accident. A devastating disaster, but still an accident. I don’t let Chris’ misfortune become a reason for me to hide from the world. Instead, this disaster has become an incentive for me to enjoy every moment that life brings. It’s inspiration to accomplish my goals and to take risks because the truth is; accidents happen.
In fact, when he embalms, he tries to detach himself from the individual and tries not to think on a personal level. Instead, he views them as his responsibility and tries to be as professional as possible. However, working at a funeral home did change his views regarding life and death. By being surrounded by death everyday, he realized how much life is fragile and how much we need to enjoy it while it lasts. For Alexandre, he tries to spend as much time as he can with his family, his friends and his
Grant’s white horses finally arrive for him and he become more aware and gathers insight about how to learn and cope with tragedies in his life. Waiting for white horses is the theme by how people will become able to receive intuition about the journey of their life. There is an idea expressed towards the end of the book that describes Grant’s dad’s funeral. It is the idea of a funeral being sad that I refute with. I disagree with the books thoughts and believe that funerals should not be mournful, but in fact they should celebrate and reflect someone’s life and also celebrate the beginning of one.
I believe that the money we spend on memorials are spent the way in should. There is nothing better to spend money on the remembering people that have done things special in our lives. The money is spent to build memorials that we can visit to remember the brave things that people have done for us. The tomb of the unknown soldier has people who show up to watch the laying of the wreath to remember those who was unable to be identified.
Monica Moreno Mrs. Mcintire AP Literature and Composition 3/01/16 Natural Causes There is a distinct connection between human beings and the nature that surrounds them. Evidence of this emotion is found when we deeply admire vast seas or the beauty of the stars against the night sky. Even though we do not obtain a special bond or blood attachment to nature, we still possess the capacity to extract a profound emotion from its presence. Theodore Roethke’s “Elegy for Jane” explores the expressions and notions of sorrow without reason or right. Feeling grief for a particular death without connection is a complex idea that is often looked down upon, but by employing natural imagery, Roethke challenges the perception of requiring a familial or
