Heroism is having the courage to do the right thing even when scared. For example, in the Hunger Games, Katniss took her sister’s place for the deadly and infamous Hunger Games. Katniss was horrified of the Hunger Games and wanted nothing to do with it. However, even scared witless, Katniss knew it was the right thing to do, no thought of reward or benefit entered her mind, but only the thought of saving her little sister. A quote from Maya Angelou about heroism is “ I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people”.
In Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Gaston says “Belle is the most beautiful girl in town, and that makes her the best.” This clearly presents the idea that Beauty comes before anything
She then continues her argument for an equal education system and how to form a lasting relationship with a significant other during her contemporary epoch by stating “The most holy band of society is friendship. It has been well said, by a shrewd satirist, ‘that rare as true love is, true friendship is still rarer,’” (Wollstonecraft, pg. 20). It is evident that she sees the importance of friendship and the human connection as being rare, but also natural.
After reading this novel, other readers would agree Janie knows who she is individually as she in multiple situations makes decisions that benefit her. She should not be read as a character who has no self-awareness. In addition, Nanny created a protected layout for Janie, which increased her unrealistic ideas on the world surrounding her. Although Hurston created a character who is put in not the best position, by being placed there by someone who is not her, so leading her to having to use her knowledge of who she is to overcome the struggles of life, Hurston creates a story everyone can relate to and learn from, no matter where they come
After Abigail lies about Tituba being a witch, Abigail makes up a very detailed and false story about why Tituba is a
Because he has a clear point of view, we can see that Hawthorne has some lessons to teach here. In this way, “The Birthmark” is a parable; it uses a very specific situation with very specific characters to make a much broader moral point. At the end Aylmer mixes up a drink for Georgiana to take and it sends her into a deep sleep, then she wakes up by scream Aylmer’s name and then she dies. It was then that Aylmer realized what a horrible mistake he had made and he could not reverse it.
In this quote, Anne even admits that as she was not born with prejudice, but her family’s behavior has influenced her to be infected with the “disease”. Nonetheless, will the disease of prejudice ever be cured? Why has it continues to stay so prevailing? I think this all goes back to the nature over nurture debate. Since people maintain influencing prejudice with unfair actions and words, children keep being affected with this and acting this way, which extends the cycle.
She reminds the reader that in the movie Brave, Merida did not want to conform to the typical princess stereotype, but instead wanted to be fearless and adventurous. When Merida becomes reimagined by Disney Princess line, she now wears a body-hugging dress, has tame hair, and a full face of makeup-everything that Merida was against. The author states that, “Instead of celebrating the fiery spirit…Disney chose to do the opposite” (Bartyzel 469). Disney doesn’t embrace Merida’s free spirit but smothers it and displays her as another submissive princess. The author also gives other examples of Disney princesses that have been transformed to fit the typical princess
Joe Starks helped Janie realize her desire and need to relinquish herself from the dominance of others. Furthermore, Tea Cake Woods granted her the freedom to do so. The two opposing cities revealed to her how her life would be, if she remained in them, ultimately showing her the best of both worlds, which essentially contributed to her leading to decide who she truly is. Eatonville answered that she should allow for others to control her and that she should accept unhappiness.
Mama wanted nothing but the best for her; she did everything in her power to get her to college because she wanted her to have a better life than she did. However, Dee used her education against Mama and Maggie in efforts to present her culture in a “better” way. Changing her name to Wangero because her birth name “Dee”, as she informed them “I couldn’t bear it any longer, being named after the people oppress me” (Walker 27). In contrast, Mama and Maggie never changed the way they dressed “African descent” or change their names to portray their true
As the fourth section progresses we are introduced to a variety of characteristics that define a rebel. My personal take was that you know you are truly rebel when you cannot be easily defined by stereotypes of a rebel. In addition, a rebellious person may rebel against multiple ideals but in rebelling against those ideals they support different ideals. Chris McCandless is a paragon of a rebel seen in his rebellion against societal norms but also his rebellion against characteristics of individuals that rebel against societal norms.

"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent." —Madeleine Albright. In the 19th century, women did not have many rights to their name. They could not vote, they could not own property, and even speaking in public was looked down upon. Anti-slavery advocates existed, but women’s rights advocates did not. However, women began to speak out for their beliefs and slowly but surely, a women’s rights movement arose.
A is an incorrect statement because Daniel Shays did not get killed or executed as a result of the conflict. In the source titled, "Mount Vernon" it stated that "Many participants were later captured and most men, including Shays, eventually received amnesty as part of a general pardon. " Daniel Shays was not hung, rather he was released back to his family where he later died in September 1825. Answer choice B is the legitimate answer because in the book for this class it says, "The state government [Massachusettes] responded by sending 4,400 militiamen.
