This quote from the book states Johnny saved kids from dying in a burning church“the door was blocked by flames, pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid.”(p.92) It shows that he saved kids from burning in a church. A hero helps others at any cost making people use them as an example of good stewardship. Greasers are not always good but some are kind people. Pony defiantly was a hero who helped others. Dally did not care he was not a hero and that shows the reader he was not.
To die,to sleep; No more; And by a sleep to say we end the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to, it 's a consummation devoutly to be wished. (Act3 Scene 1 Line 64-71) The speech in Hamlet not only reveals the death but also spreading rot and decay. Hamlet is quite struggling about to live or to die. At the beginning of the play, he is grieved at his father’s death and his mother’s hasty marriage with his uncle. He decided not to die at last.
In the poem “Do not go gentle into that good night,” the poet uses a metaphor to compare death as “night” and “dying of the light.” Dylan Thomas repeats the lines “Do not go gentle into that good night” and “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” in each stanza to emphasize that all men should not accept death, but fight it until their last breath. He describes four types of dying men before addressing his father. First, he states that intelligent men that know death is near and have not had any impact on society still fight to live: “though wise men at their end know dark is right, / Because their words had forked no lightning they / do not go gentle into the good night.” (Lines 4-6). Then, Thomas states that good men also fight for their life. Even on their death bed they talk about how they could have done more good deeds in their life: “Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright / their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay” (Lines 7-8).
. Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything. Not only did the gang prevent him from finishing his studies, but from overall becoming a high-class man; as Ponyboy had announced to the rest of his
After running from the police when johnny stabbed Bob a soc they find themselves in an abandoned church. When Ponyboy returns to society after being in the hospital. He finds himself meeting with Randy, Bob's best friend. Pony is suppried when Randy tells him that he's sorry for Pony and how Bob's parents never gave him limits. This changes Pony’s belief that all socs were evil because”Randy was too cool to feel anything yet there was pain in his eyes.”(116)Pony continues to hate the socs but this changes his view on the socs and reminds him they're human too.
Heroes, people say don't be them, because it risks your life and it is not worth it, you don’t get paid, you don’t get powers, you're just you by the end of the day and do something some people call dumb. But being a hero is not just Rafael at a fair to become one, to be one is to do what’s right even when everyone is not. Do it for the better of life, not for glory, but for anything that drives you to keep going. All heroes are different, but also the heroes come from the same roots about how they do what they do. We are going to dig deep into that reason why soon.
Although, if the consumer 's life is dominated with an evil influence that person will die no matter how they use it. This relates to Romeo and Juliet’s love, which symbolizes the good, while the feud between their families symbolizes the dominating evil. This expresses a tone of tragedy because it foreshadows the sorrow of Romeo and Juliet’s untimely and unnecessary deaths due to the feud. Another example is when Juliet is about to drink the sleeping potion administered to her by the Friar. This potion will feign her death for forty two hours by putting her in a cold, death like, deep sleep.
“If I kill him we perished there as well, for we could never move his ponderous doorway slab aside. So we left to groan and wait till morning” (Homer 250). This explains how the journey matters more than the destination because in life a person has to take choices to stay alive. In the poem The Cyclops Odysseus made a choice not to kill the caveman and wait to see what he had to
Furthermore, Dally Winston demonstrates his heroism when he dies saving Johnny from the burning church. “But I remembered Dally pulling Johnny through the window of the burning church; Dally giving us his gun, although it could mean jail for him; Dally risking his life for us, trying to keep Johnny out of trouble.” (Hinton 154). Loyalty is about how much one is willing to sacrifice for another person. Darry sacrificed his college education, his degree, his future because of his sense
Macbeth knows the end of his life is coming, and realizing his “fire” to his candle is about to be blown out. The idea of a candle is a good mental picture to compare people’s lives to because a candle will always burn out, just like people always die. Those are two things that are always given on this earth and Macbeth realizes his candle is almost
The scene that I relate to in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is when Huck is trying to get away from the Duke and the King. The quote that I found for this part in the book was when huck was talking to Mary Jane and he said “ It’s a rough gang, them two frauds, I’m fixed so I got to travel with them a while longer...”(187). This quote shows that Huck has figured out that the Duke and King are not good people and that he knows that he will still be with them for a little while longer. Huck realizes that the two men are up to no good and he wants to be as far from them as he can. In this part of the book, Huck Finn is also trying to make sure that Mary Jane and her family get the money that they deserve.
