Relationships are the core of everything we do in life. We love someone, so we do something for them; we value someone 's opinion, so we respect them; we dislike someone, so we avoid them. Relationships cause people to act on their emotions which impact how and why they do the things they do. Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple trying to come to a conclusion on a delicate matter. While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy.

However, the reviewers wrote that the book is fascination, enjoyable and easy to read. These kinds of words make the book sound interesting to me, because I like the book which is easy to read. Eventually, not the explanation of the book, but he customer reviews make the book sounds
People love others not for who they are,but for how they make them feel. - Irwin Federman Why does everyone they love pick the people that treat them like they 're nothing? I 'll tell you why it 's because we accept the love we think we deserve. After all, Irwin Federman has a great point when he claims people love others not for who they are, but for how they make them feel, which means that in our life we like the feeling we have or get with that one person rather than truly loving and knowing them for who they are. This is true for two main characters of F. Scott Fitzgerald 's novel The Great Gatsby First of all, Gatsby feels the need to relive the past with Daisy.
Initially I was skeptical about reading this novel as I knew it would contradict Atticus Finch 's character. However, I did enjoy this book! I thought the novel presented a good message about following your own conscience rather than conforming to the opinions of others. My favorite part of the novel was after Jean Louise and Atticus’s big fight where Atticus tells Jean Louise “You may be sorry, but I’m proud of you,” (Lee 277) and after processing all of this information Jean Louise tells Atticus “I think I love you very much.” (Lee 278) I loved this part in particular because it described how in life we can still love the people we disagree with. This novel is definitely a more challenging read than To Kill A Mockingbird as it requires lots of analyzation to fully understand the text.
Having an open mind is another characteristic people turn to when contemplating what an ideal person is. It shows that one is open to new ideas, suggestions and can see the opposing side of an argument. Appreciation is given to those with this trait because it is easier to reach agreements on important matters by both sides of the argument compromising. Machiavelli, on the other hand, prefers to be in control and tells people this in The Prince. Once again, he has a pessimistic outlook on what the optimal person is.
When making this quick, traumatizing choice he listened to the first instinct his body told him, which was to save Delia even though the logical choice was to save Eunice. The text proves this saying ““The truth is” Uncle Nathan said, “I had kind of fallen for her”” (Summers 195). This shows that, even though he knew he should love Eunice, Uncle Nathan truly loved Delia, so when he had to choose who to save he chose what his heart was telling him. Secondly, Uncle
Socrates enjoyed how Agathon phrased his speech meticulously. He believes that all the others who have given a speech about love have done a great job, but he does not think they tell the truth about love. He asks if he could say his speech differently and to ask Agathon some questions about his speech and Phaedrus allows him to. Socrates asks whether love is a love of something. An example that he brought up is a father is a father of a son or daughter and Agathon agrees.
No male during this time would have suspected anything similar to this of their wife, but the fact that Shakespeare even wrote about it hints to readers that Shakespeare may have believed in equality for women. Emilia also stood up for what she believed in and laid down her life doing so. After finding out her husband, Iago, was the one who had plotted the demise of so many around her, Emilia declared “Tis proper I obey him, but not right now” (5.2.233). Emilia knew she was expected to obey her husband, yet she was willing to lay down her life to alert others of the atrocious acts that her husband had committed. Not only did Emilia speak out against her husband, but was willing to lose her life in the process.
Throughout this part of the novel i have to admit i felt really bad for his friend Hassan because he is a really great friend of Amir but it seems to me that Amir does not truely respect and honor his friends loyalty and love for him. When the new Amir finally came into affect it really lifted my spirits and made me happy to see what kind of man my beloved Amir was turning into. He was starting to stick up for himself, he was starting to show more responsibilty for him self and others, started having more respect for himself and others, and started to not let what people had to say about him affect and play a role in his head as much as he did before his life changing journey and new sought after attitude. I am anxious to see how the new Amir develops and becomes more of a man and to see what decisions he will make and how he will handle these new situations he will soon be
Before the end of the book, Huck now understands regardless of how bad somebody is their life is still of worth. This shows how mature he can really be because somebody that was immature would rather want somebody to get what they deserve than looking at what their life is worth. “Well it made me sick to see it; and I was sorry for them poor pitiful rascals… It was a dreadful thing to see.” Pg. 174. When Huck was talking about this about the king and duke shows he is maturing and had a true feeling for people.
What caught my attention the most was the way Q was persistent even if at times he wanted to give up on solving the problem he was always lead to trying to find Margo one way or another. Paper Towns did meet my expectations it was entertaining to read this book and think what would happen next. At first, I Wondered why the author didn’t write about Margo making the other decision, why pick the sad ending but then I realized, that it was a better ending the way he described it. I would recommend this book to others because in my point of view, I like how it has many plot twists throughout the story and it gets you thinking every time. I Would recommend this book to people who like to read about love stories as well as mysterious type of books.
“SO I AINT NO GOOD GIRL” In this story “SO I AINT NO GOOD GIRL”, written by Sharon Flake, I felt that the author really made the characters realistic and normal. Simply because the way the characters show themselves to the readers .also the way the readers display themselves, it makes everything seem so real. Because she is dating Raheem and is very protective of him and that is very real in the actual world today. But with Raheem he shows a personality that u can really learn to dislike or hate. And that is another reason why Raheem shows real human boy or teenager characteristics.
