She goes on to elaborate how she always waits for the longest day of the year, but ends up missing it-- a seemingly pointless topic that alludes to the reality of the lives Daisy and Tom lead, one that Nick mirrors in the novel. Not having to work for anything, their life is composed of worthless decisions and accomplishments that lead to nothing. Having their future laid out for them, their lives are filled with hollow attempts to pass the time. However, in their endeavor to occupy themselves, they become ignorant to the consequences of their actions. They consume themselves with a temporary substitute for a purposeless life, blind to the damage they cause, unwilling to change, waiting for a climax that never arrives.
By reply to the question right after, Machiavelli pitches the idea to the heirs of these imperiums, providing a higher prospect of them accepting that ideology as an answer. Machiavelli has such confidence that fear is much safer to be loved. He believes that by utilizing fear, the common men that will easily betray dare not to ever turn their backs for fear of death. For the terror of their common and worthless lives to their merciless tyrant.

From their initial to their concluding appearances in the play, they exhibited immense and beneficial changes. The most essential ideal that can be extracted from Cyrano de Bergerac is that we all are flawed humans with voids we think we may have, but is up to us to strive to refashion into the best versions of ourselves. It is acceptable to feel doubtful of ourselves but our imperfections will never define us. We all have the strength and capability to change into the individual we yearn to be. At first, it can be challenging but soon we can look back with content.
I don’t exactly recall what i did after that, except for the fact that I lost my shirt, and a piece of my integrity as well. While this was not one of my fondest moments, it offered a sense of identity, or more precisely a glimpse of my flaws I possess, which can later prove to be detrimental to my ethics, morality and sincere decency. This crucial moment in my life was a defining moment and possibly a foreshadow to the difficult road ahead.

A first-person narrator is vital to the plot of “Tell-Tale Heart”, and its perspective is as if the author is the main character of the story. Understanding the author’s deliberate structure of suspense helps understand the story in depth, and the internal conflict synchronizes well with the author’s clockwork.

For example, they both have one person that sticks out and is different from the others. Although it is risky to step aside from society it is for the better. They both changed the future and put everything back to how it was before the corruption. “We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever” (Rand 19).
hard. I could tell you it will get better, that it's all going to be okay, and maybe you won't want to hear it, because it's such a cliché, but it's the truth. Because pain is temporary, and not only that, it's also necessary. All those who know me well, know that when things go wrong, I make a reference to the universe, that it has a plan for each and everyone of us, and if it's out of your control, then what is the point of stressing over it? We learn from mistakes, we learn when we screw up, we learn when we get hurt, we learn from experience.

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.

Cuts by Patricia McCormick really could have been a powerful book that pushed teens to seek help. Instead it became a shallow mockery of the real struggles and burdens that many teens face. Anyone who has not faced these struggle would have a warped perspective of them after reading this book. I would consider it an almost dangerous book due to the almost constant message that self-harm isn’t bad, that it actually feels great and is good stress relief.
