“She’s going to tear the black bastards limb from limb, she’s so furious. She’s swelling up, swells until her back’s splitting out the white uniform and she’s let her arms section out long enough to wrap around the the three of them five, six times. She looks around with a swivel of her huge head. Nobody up to see, just old Broom Bromden the half-breed Indian back there hiding behind his mop and can’t talk to call for help. So she really lets herself go and her painted smile twists, stretches to an open snarl, and she blows up bigger and bigger ...” (Ken Kesey 4-5). -proof -explain
“He did not smoke, and of course he did not drink; indeed, he had never tasted spirits, and was inclined to avoid people who had—a circumstance that did not shrink his social circle as much as might be supposed, for the center of that circle was supplied by the members of Garden City's First Methodist Church,a congregation totaling seventeen hundred ,most of whom were as abstemious as Mr. Clutter could desire.’’ (10)
For my To Kill A Mocking Bird project I did the 10-15 aphorisms. I think that I deserve a A- for my project. My rationale for this project was to learn and understand more about the aphorisms in the book. The steps I took to complete this project was look over the book and find my favorite aphorisms. One of my favorite aphorisms that Atticus said is "Before I can live with other folks I 've got to live with myself." I think that this quote is saying that we need to be able to handle our own issues and learn about ourselves before we can deal with others. Another step I took was have all of my family members look at my project and paper to give me their input on what they like and what I need to change. I also looked up little things that I thought

Damn these eggs damn the eggs there ever were!!! In the play The Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry Walter one of the main characters is unbelievably rude, ignorant, disrespectful, selfish and everything in between, to his entire family
Machiavelli said it best in his book The Prince, "It is Better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both." The main characters of The Lord Of The flies by William Golding, Jack and Ralph, both share the similar goal of becoming leader. As Jack being feared and Ralph being loved, throughout the book you perceive that being feared as a leader maintains order, causes stability, and embodies a sense of respect. Love comes, and it goes. The fact that it's fickle causes it to be an untrustworthy ground to build leadership on. Throughout the book it is exhibited through many events that as a leader being feared lets you accomplish more and causes a loyal relationship with the people surrounding you.
This quote shows that Dick is longing to forget about the murders and move on with his life. Capote uses words like " Why the hell couldn't Perry shut up" and "He was Annoyed.. Annoyed as hell" to show Dick his antagonistic attitude towards Perry's level of concern. Though he secretly feels guilty about what happened, he wishes that Perry would stop bringing it up since that makes it harder for him to forget about the horrific event. With this quote Capote's is trying to reveal that Dick thought of Perry as paranoid and over dramatic. For example, " Unlike Perry, he was not convinced that a broken mirror meant seven years' misfortune, or that a
There are 318.9 million people living in the United States and every citizen has the desire to fulfil their own American Dream. The traditional American Dream is a common concept known by all citizens but is viewed differently by each individual. Every American is different and believes they can be granted their dream or denied it. The American Dream means having the chance to live your dreams and committing yourself to the country that grants you so many opportunities. The American Dream is a reality; no matter who you are or what you do the dream never leaves. Some citizens struggle to accept that the dream is still there because of modern society and how it contributes to things such as financial instability.
Good morning students and teachers. I honestly can't believe I've made it through my last year of schooling here at Southern Cross. Throughout my senior English studies, I have realised that individuality is something that is unfortunately lost amongst the trends and expectations of a developing society. Especially in regards to adolescents, I believe that it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a sense of independence and uniqueness in a society where everyone is expected to conform to the majority. Over the last two years, texts such as “The Kite Runner”, Shakespeare's “Othello”, Robert Frost's “Into My Own”, and the film “The Breakfast Club” have definitely inspired me to be myself and to stay true my own beliefs.
Ursula Le Guin defines Omelas as a utopia where the citizens’ lives are never wretched. Le Guin captures her readers’ attention by describing the city’s beauty with the colorful scenery, events featuring games and horse riding, and the everlasting happiness. She does a great job of leading her readers into thinking this could be the perfect society, but leaves us with the question of satisfaction. According to Le Guin, “happiness is based on a just discrimination of what is necessary, what is neither necessary nor destructive, and what is destructive” (p. 2). This quote means that there must be a balance for the society to succeed. The basic needs in life are considered as water, food, and reproduction, and the simple wants are “central heating, subway trains, washing machines, and all kinds of marvelous devices” (p.2). The destruction to society could be one’s remorse for the child’s suffering. If one shows sympathy for the child and it is released from the basement, the city’s beauty and happiness will vanish. The child could represent selfless because its sacrifice is for the prosperity of Omelas. Le Guin explains that the society is a bargain between happiness and
As the story “The Georges and the Jewels” A girl named Abby in the story always gives up and never wants to do things she can’t do. “But if, right when you let up on the reins, your horse put his head between his knees again and took off bucking, kicking higher and higher until he finally dropped you and went tearing off to the other end of the ring, well, you might lie there, as I did, with the wind knocked out of you and think about how nice it would be not to get back on, because that horse is just dedicated to bucking you off.” This quote explains that Abby gives up because she thought that the horse is just there for bucking her off and never got her things right. This is the quote that showed that Abby always gave up and never wanted to get back on the horse because the horse bucked her. This is the other quote that proves Abby changed. “We sold her for a nice piece of change within a month, and I wish I knew where she was.” This quote explains that Abby misses the horse because she and her dad sold her for a good price. This is the quote that shows Abby changed and never wants to give up from now. The whole text evidence and the explanation shows the the theme of the story which is never give up, try again and again until you succeed. My thought is that giving up is not an option,
The Road takes place in a post apocalyptic world, the setting is barren, silent, godless. (McCarthy, 4) It’s easy for the man to question why he should keep on going, but he manages by telling himself that he carries the fire, his son. The man’s deceased wife once told him that he couldn’t survive for himself, he has to survive for someone else. His son is the man’s reason for living as he does everything he can to ensure his survival. He ensures his son’s well being and happiness by giving him small luxuries like hot cocoa and the last coca cola. Ely says, “Where man cannot live, gods fear no better.” Gods are only worth

This quote is set during a hurricane. Everyone is trying persevere through this hurricane. This whole book is about hope, making it through your problems, and achieving your dreams. Which is said in the first paragraph of this book. It talks about the men achieving their dreams. This quote also relates to Janie and her three marriages. Out of all of them I believe this would connect to her second marriage, which was with Joe (Jody). I would say that this marriage showed Janie why hurricanes are named after people. Joe put Janie through so much, all because he wanted to keep his “Macho man” status among the men in Eatonville. In the end, Janie made it through and found love again with Tea Cake.
