From all of the characters in the story, I feel the most for Lennie. Going along with the literary technique of naturalism, the fact that Lennie has a mental disability is because that is how he was born. There is nothing you can do that can change your heredity, and people judge Lennie on that all the time. George is the main culprit when he says that everything would be easier without having Lennie around. We all know that, but George doesn’t have to tell Lennie that to his face to make him feel worse about himself.
Atticus and Hassan are the two role models in each novel acting as the people who stand up for their ideology. Atticus is known as the role model of Maycomb, all of his neighborhood look at him as the leader of respect and honesty. On the other hand Hassan is treated horribly by his brother Amir. Although Hassan is right at all times, he agrees with Amir
It can used to represent anyone, who has shown the smallest amount of perseverance despite defeat. All things considered, in both Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and If by Rudyard Kipling, the themes of sanity, defeat, and self dignity are present. Sanity is the control over one’s body, in which how they think and behave in a normal and rational matter. It is extremely arduous to stay calm and hold a good head on your shoulders at all times. Louie Zamperini did not only hold serenity in the toughest moments in his life, but he also tried to save the sanity in his fellow soldiers.
Don 't get me wrong, there 's many teenagers that appreciate everything that is done for them, but the majority don 't. We want things made our way, to our liking, and nothing else. Everyone surrounding us may suffer because of this, but it doesn 't matter to us because we are getting our way. What we don 't realize is that there are a lot of teens, living day by day anticipating that they get what they want because they can 't. Kids with cancer, want to survive and overcome their sickness.
Before I explain, I would just like to say that this story is pro-Greaser, anti-Soc. In other words, this story casts a bad light on the Socs, and convey the Greasers to be the "good guys". I'm sure if this book was written to convey the Socs as the "good guys", it could be done, and everyone would be sitting here writing about why Bob is a hero. Anyway, I believe Ponyboy is a hero because first of all, he makes a positive impact on all the Greasers lives, expect for Steve's, who dislikes him. Even Dally cares about him, which is seen when Dally goes out of his way to help him and Johnny.
Every influential person that has ever wondered this earth has had moral courage at one point in their life. Moral courage separates the great from the average person. It’s something that can not be bought, it has to be earned. This is why society celebrates the minority who acquire moral courage in one form or another. The most essential component of moral courage overall would have to be conflicting ideas.
He has never given up on me and henceforth encouraged me to be a good prototypical citizen. The ones he most cares about is his parents, family and his children. He is a father who is always eager to give advice his children about life and always supports them. During my 8th standard when I was not doing so well in a subject because I was not very good in academics as everybody expected good results out of me. My father then had a long conversation with me about life, he told me that it would be smarter if I would study hard because, it would be easier for me to get a job and be happy in life in fact I realized that would be the best way I could help me
Firstly, Nick’s opening narration is iconic, and maybe one of the best beginnings ever: “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since: Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” We see that Nick is gentle and never underestimate anyone, which makes him the only one to sympathize with Gatsby. Nick 's open-mindedness gives him a deeper perspective on the people around him and protects him from falling subject to the glitzy, superficial materialism of the 1920s. This iconic narration help us to increase our real life capacity for empathy. We can be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and view the world from their
He does not really show signs of respect for others so he belongs most to tier three of the model. Ralph represents the ego category because though he is a rational thinker and morally stable at least during the beginning of the book, he also demonstrates signs of wanting to fit in such as leaving Piggy behind to go explore\ the island with Jack and Simon (pg#). His basic needs are met, he feels safe in the beginning, he is leader of a group, and he respects himself as well as others. This puts him at level four of Maslow’s Hierarchy. Piggy and Simon represent the super ego because they both understand the rules of society and still adhere to most of them while on the island.
Steinbeck also depicts George as someone that is greatly honest and true to his word as he is still loyal to Lennie even after a promise made such a long time ago. To anyone, taking care of Lennie is not an easy task. It's no different for George. He has complained in heaps of occurrences that Lennie is difficult to handle. Since Lennie is mentally challenged, George repeatedly thinks about how much simpler his life could be without Lennie.
I feel like he is doing this pretense to show that he is a very saintly person, who speaks only greatness. Throughout part two in the book, I’ve noticed that he always makes himself seem he is better than others. He makes others feel very low. He butters everyone up, and proves that he is the one sensible soul who determines what type of talent they have. I disagree with this quote as it is contradicting with my personal beliefs.
Their Eyes Were Watching God Analysis There are many characters that have exploited the qualities of a good leader, but I think that Joe Starks is the character that exploits the most to his benefit. Joe comes to Eatonville with nothing, but a dream and three hundred dollars. Joe won over the heart of Janie because he explained what he wanted to do and what his goals in life were and Janie wanted to be a part of that. Joe goes to Eatonville and demands there to be change. The leadership qualities that Joe possesses are delegation, communication and confidence.
He has set standards for all people that wish to be successful and do not want to be “average”. Carnegie has opened my eyes to many different ideas and ways to become the best person that I can. Success is now a goal of mine and I am driven to create a life that I do not need a vacation from. Carnegie said it best when he made this statement, “ People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” When I think about this quote it reminds me of another extremely successful man, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He said, “ The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else.
Neil deGrasse Tyson once said, “The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation” (Neil deGrasse Tyson Quotes, n.d., n.p.). I interpret this statement to mean, you can sit back and let life happen, or you can step out, take control and make life happen. I know that making life happen does not take place without God, God’s word, or God’s timing; without God and the bible, nothing good is possible. Even though Mr. Tyson considers himself a scientist, not a philosopher, in my opinion, some of his famous quotes are highly reflective of philosophical thinking. In this paper, I will discuss what has challenged me in this class by giving a specific example of the topic I struggled with the philosopher’s viewpoint.
Conclusion In conclusion, I believe that having personal ethics is key to living a happy, meaningful life. While it was difficult to evaluate what values were most important to me, I found that once I sat down and actually thought about what my life is currently like and what I do in my daily life, it was easy to come up with my core values. I found that having an unbiased attitude towards others leads to my other core values of: honesty, loyalty, compassion, patience, advocacy and respect for others. Currently these values all play a major roll in my life. However, as my family grows in age and maturity and as my circle of friends changes and evolves, then these issues will need to be re-evaluated in a few years’ time to help me continue to live my life in a happy, productive and meaningful
