However, the quote signified Jeannie strong will and determination the readers saw since the beginning. It was obvious Jeannie was ready to take action. “She passed Barrington and saw him smile. She felt tears come to her eyes, but she swallowed them and held her head high. To hell with you all, she thought; one day you’ll find out I was right” (Follett 458).
The things that made him happy were the knowledge in the books and how Clarrise thought differently. In the first part of the book you would think that Montag’s life was great, even he thought it was great. But there was a girl named Clarrise, and she changed his life. She made him think differently about his life and about society. As the book goes on, Mildred and Montag have struggles.
October or November 1944, Anne and her sister Margot, transferred from Auschwitz to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. At this camp, they died of typhus. Still, everyone is trying to figure out why Anne wrote this and what does it mean. When Anne Frank wrote this the meaning is that even though someone might be something bad or in a bad mood there is always a good side of that person. So when Hitler was doing all of those
Huxley's ideas that our society is numbed by things that we love and that everyone is almost happy to be somewhat oppressed is almost too real. It is pretty easy to see and make connections after evaluating our society that we live in. I agree with Neil Postmans assertions claiming that Brave New World is most relevant to our society. One of Postman’s claims that i related to is “people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.” this is expressed in the book by the simple quote “community, identity, stability”(1). It relates to Postman’s assertion because the “identity” means that people need to accept who they are in order to keep society functioning properly.
All the times that Gerda, the main character, waited to give up and die, she fought through it and lived. Gerda was 15 when the war started and 21 when the war ended and to go through all that pain and suffering at that age was just inspirational. The author did a great job telling her story and letting the reader be able to go through what she had to go through, with the soldiers, the concentration camps and all the deaths she had to go through while she lived. I think it was amazing how she was able to recall so many details from when she was so young. I was glad I was able to read this book and to follow her life during World War
One particular family member, the youngest daughter, has a legacy that still lives on today. Anne Frank was both a hero and a victim of the Holocaust because she was forced into hiding, her loved ones were killed, and her diaries positively impacted many. During this dreadful time, Anne Frank was victimized by being forced into hiding. The Franks originally lived peacefully in Germany, but as the Nazis gained power, they slowly moved to Amsterdam. The father, Otto, previously knew the city, and brought his family with him once he found a place to live (Kniesmeyer 519).
Anne Frank A Light in the Dark Anne Frank once said, “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Many people know that Anne Frank was an extraordinary diarist, truly an optimist, and a spunky, energetic girl, but did they know that she was wise beyond her years? She changed the world by blessing humanity with her extraordinary literature skills and imagination. She showed that even in horrible times, people could make the most out of it, and not wallow in their misery. She left a legacy as the light in the dark. Earlier times leading up to the arrest of Anne Frank and her Annex family were full of interesting events and emotion.
Hester changed her attire to a plain, darkshade, with no designs, which corresponded to her emotions. There was nothing she could accomplish to reduce the pain of the guilt since the truth was known by everyone in her hometown. As time went on, Hester regained some purport in her town. The townspeople demanded Hester for her skills and soon she did not need to wear the scarlet letter anymore, but she thought she deserved it. Whether the sin was committed in secrecy or not, both Hester and Dimmesdale went through similar consequences.
In "The Gift of the Magi", when Della gives Jim the chain and tells him to show the watch, his answer is "let's put our Christmas gifts away and keep them a while. They're too nice to use now" (Henry). Looking back to how they both get the gifts for each other, it is so difficult for them to find something which is perfect for the person they love. After all they have done is for nothing, nobody can tell how hard it is. It is so sentimental for this story.
Even though there are quite a few admirable characters from both Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and Maus, she should take the MACA. I can understand from certain points of view why she would be shunned for her actions, but if you look at why she did what she did, she showed the true feeling of freedom. I feel that many people can learn from Cassie’s successes and failures, and become a better person not only for themselves, but also for the good of the
