In Of Mice And Men, Slim clarifies that “‘We got to get him to a doctor”’(Steinbeck 64). Slim saying this for Curley shows that he does only by what is right because he does this in spite of his intolerance of Curley. Slim cautions Curley saying, “‘I think you got your hand caught in a machine”’(Steinbeck 64). In saying this, Slim delivers that his outlook is in thought of the right ideology and not in regards to his own benefit. Slim contends Curley’s selfish thoughts by saying, “‘But you jus’ tell an’ try to get this guy canned and we’ll tell ever’body, an’ then you will get the laugh”’(Steinbeck 64).
In “The Monkey’s Paw,” a talisman is forwarded to people with the intent of granting three wishes for three people. In all three cases the wishes are granted, however, they bring a horrid outcome along with them. The results of the wishes may even be death. The repeated awful outcomes reveal the theme of fate, which one must not interfere with unless they would like consequences alongside it. First, the story begins with Sergeant-Major telling the story of the initial man who possessed the monkey’s paw.
Body Paragraph #1 about “The Monkey's Paw” The cause is that Morris said If you keep it, don't blame me for what happens. Sargent-Major Morris was the when Mr. White the paw, that night he gave it to him because he wanted it for it's power, Morris told Mr. White that the last wish will be evil.

In addition, When Mr. and Mrs. White decide to keep the monkeys paw, one of the wishes they make is for their son Herbert to come back alive. When Mrs. White comes up with the idea, Mr. White is highly against it. He thinks that they should not mess with the dead.”It’s foolish and wicked”, Mr. White says after hearing the wish(115). The audience is left wondering, “Will Mr. White ever make the wish?” After Mr. White finally decides to make the wish, he immediately wishes for he’s son not to come back.

“You have choice,a single choice,whatever that choice you have to live with the consequences,a single choice.” This means they had to make a choice and they had to live with what happened. Your choices will have consequences even if they are good choices.Making selfish consequences can have effects on you and others.Characters from “the monkey 's paw” and “old grandfother” taught me to treat everyone the same.Don 't be selfish and treat everyone like they are not a living thing. However ,your choices have consequences.Marce makes a choice to give them the paw when knowing the power..The author wrote ”it 's just a bit of what you call magic”.Marce in acting strangely and this leaves the whites to be curease about the monkey’s paw.They stuffed the of their son 's death.The theme is similar because the daughter has to make choice and has to suffer the consequences because of her actions.Daughter makes a choice to treat the old man poorly.She suffers the consequences when her son does the same thing she had done.The text states ”Tears filled there eyes they were astonished for them treating him so meanly”. This tells me that her choice made her son realize he can treat her the same way unless she changed her ways.These
Along with his loving wife, Mrs.White and their son Herbert, the family bonded well and at first did not seem to be distant from each other. The story was full of life lessons that are useful in today’s world, even though it was published in the 19th century. Jacobs uses foreshadowing throughout “The Monkey’s Paw” to prove that ignorance can cause people to make poor decisions; his use of suspenseful tone and dark mood show that those decisions will lead to bad consequences controlled by fate. The constant state of ignorance with the White’s family created poor decisions in which the use of foreshadowing subtly hinted. In the beginning of the story, Sergeant-Major Morris, firmly told the White’s family about the danger of the monkey’s paw.
This narrative piece is an effective expository technique that describes the narrator’s thoughts and tone. Orwell uses oxymoron such as “grinning corpse” and paradox phrases such as “the story always sounds clear enough at a distance, but the nearer you get to the scene of events the vaguer it becomes”. Another paradox statement is shown in “I perceived this moment that when the white man turns tyrant it is his own freedom that he destroys”. Orwell’s decisions were briskly altered as he was deciding on whether to kill the elephant or not. His mind altered from “I ought not to shoot him” to “I had got to do it” and also to “But I did not want to shoot the elephant”.
In John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men, George is faced with the strenuous decision of whether or not to euthanize his close companion, Lennie. Ultimately, George shot Lennie in the back of his head. But was he justified? Though some might say it is always wrong to kill someone, in this situation it could be justified because Curley would have killed Lennie if George didn't, Lennie’s disability would have continued to cause problems, and George
The Ballad of Atticus Finch In to Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee presents the idea that wisdom is demonstrated by having already experienced what has happened or what is about to happen. Social justice requires wisdom because one's self has to know what they are dealing with and how to handle it. The character of Atticus Finch displays wisdom by not picking sides because of color on Tom’s case, by understanding the money problem that the Cunnigham’s had and by understanding his physical limitations when Jem and Scout want to play Atticus is wise because he knows it is unfair to be racist in this era and definitely with the job that he has. Atticus demonstrates wisdom be telling Scout about how it is unfair to cheat a colored man by saying
The cause-and-effect relationship in “The Monkeys Paw” is an amazing example as to how much an occurrence can affect the story line and the suspense within it. In the story the mother and father are one of the major reasons why the suspense is there, because they made wishes in the story the paw (which is also a cause of the suspense) had
