He denies the fact that it is impossible, till it is thoroughly pointed out to him that it has happened. After that, he no longer is king and is taken from his throne. His downfall was brought upon him from his excessive pride; he is so full of pride throughout the book that he continually denies that anything bad can happen to him. It is written like this in order to show that being to conceit, and believing that it horrible things can’t happen to people, will make people blind to when it does happen. When Tiresias the blind prophet come to Oedipus to bring him the prophecy, Oedipus is too prideful to see what Tiresias is trying to say.
Due to this, they will lose passion to create, and will only consume and follow what the World State commands. Moreover, the World State never teach history during the conditions because it offers them an alternative. Because they are not aware of the notions of right and freedom, they do not rise for revolution. “‘You all remember,’ said the Controller, in his strong deep voice, ‘you all remember, I suppose, that beautiful and inspired saying of Our Ford's: History is bunk. History,’ he repeated slowly, ‘is bunk.’” (BNW Ch3).
Parris tells Danforth that “...Andover have thrown out the court, they say, and will have no part of witchcraft. There be a faction here, feeding on that news, and I tell you true, sir, I fear there will be riot here” (Miller 1220). Parris fears that a riot could occur in Salem if Proctor and Rebecca Nurse are to be hanged. The town would turn against him and the courts, causing him to lose his minister position and have to leave town. A confession from John Proctor would cause the townspeople not to rebel because Proctor’s life would be
Hale sees what is right and believes Proctor after such justification. Hale does not seek authority but goes against the court in their decisions regarding John and the other innocent people, separating him from his status quo. Hale holds Rebecca Nurse with respect as well as John for their truthfulness in their morality. John Proctor and Reverend Hale value their individuality and moral integrity with
Albert Einstein, Pete Seeger, and Giles Cory all would have agreed tremendously with this amendment; for all men refused to give the people questioning them what they wanted. Albert Einstein said, “... Every intellectual who is called before one of the committees ought to refuse to testify…” (Doc E) Pete Seeger later took his advice when questioned by HUAC and said, “I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election or any of these private affairs.” He was sentenced to a year in prison. However, he appealed and won but he still remained on the blacklist until the late 1960s. Giles Corey, an elderly man, was condemned for not giving the names of other suspected witches, so they thought that if they tortured him then he’d give up the names. “He would not answer aye or hay to his indictment… Great stones they lay upon his chest until he plead aye or nay.
So Bear did the only logical thing and ran away from the Convent. This shows Crispin that you can change your life and your fate. Unfortunately, Crispin still belittles himself and even says that he is nothing because he has no name, no family, no one who even cares about him and that so many people want to kill him. Crispin says many things like this throughout the book like when Bear gives him the choice of going with him to Great Wexly Crispin insists that he can’t make the choice because he’s just a servant. Also during this time Bear teaches Crispin that work does pay off in the end shown here “Honest pay for honest work.
Proctor refused to let the paper he signed be hung on the wall, shouting, “I have confessed myself!... God does not need my name nailed upon the church!... God knows how black my sins are! It is enough!" He implied that by falsely confessing to witchcraft he would be dishonorable to his friends and family, and it would encumber him for the rest of his life.
A President who can show us that we can live in peace and not have to worry about “ohh he's racist” or “he only cares about the money and not us”.Instead of that we need to say “he stood up for us” or “he's a President that wouldn't let us down even for money”. All of this is just saying that we aren't in a look out for a perfect president were in a look out for a President who cares for us.The president should try to make this country a better place to live even though it is going well right now but there some thing that our president can do so he can change these
In line 1228 he says to the leader: “Oh it’s hard giving up on the heart’s desire… but I will do it” after he is convinced to let Antigone free. This quote says, Creon does not want to go back on his word and does not want to let a criminal get away, but he has to so his people can view him as a better ruler than they initially thought. This made me feel sympathetic because he was willing to give up something he cared about for the life of someone else. It shows a change he undergoes but was never able to fix his mistakes because Antigone had already killed
The opening quote in the introduction explains his powerful mindset towards the end of his trial. Another aspect of his strengths is when Proctor forbids them to use him as an example to other prisoners. Miller writes Proctor saying, “ You will not use me! I am no Sarah Good or Tituba, I am John Proctor! You will not use me!
Longstreet knows that Lee’s plan is bound to fail, but Lee doesn’t listen to him. Longstreet knows that Lee will not let him be discharged as commander of the attack, so he doesn’t ask. The depressed Longstreet continues with his duties. Longstreet proceeds to explain his plan, and the listeners are inspired by
He said no I will not accept any of these solutions and start being angry and not listening to me. And start saying word like (don’t do anything for me, I don’t want it, my supervisor dose favoritism, he takes care of his group only, like Farman got what he wants), I had to cut the conversation and I told him I will do whatever I can. The reason that I withdraw myself from there was a guard with unstable emotionally and about to break crying and has a loaded gun with him. So, I went back with the Acting supervisor Ahmed to his office and I told him to change his day offs to Sunday and Monday to avoid any future problems, to have time to brief the ARSO Jimmy, have the guard clampdown for two days and to make less interaction as possible between the guard and his supervisor for security
