Instead of Proctor getting his name on the church doors he wanted to die to save his good name. In my case I have lied about somethings but then in the end I had become truthful about it all. But people were still trying to make me feel even worse for what I did. In response I just simply said you can either appreciate me for coming clean or be mad at me for lying. Which one do you
He did not want any consequences ever again. He wanted to live along without consequences” (2). The war had affected Krebs in ways that he never wanted to experience anything similar to it ever again. Krebs felt the need to talk about his experiences, but in order for anyone to listen at all, “he had to lie and after he had done this twice, he, too, had a reaction against the war and against talking about it” (1). But even after trying to talk about it, Krebs felt to traumatized to want to speak about the war.
We don’t want to say anything to hurt our family members, however we want to do the right thing. Being an honest person is a great quality to have. David's way of thinking brought him to think of great choices to make some had a positive outcome, while others did
Atticus tells Scout, "Try fighting with your head for a change...it's a good one, even if it does resist learning."(Lee,101). Atticus only wants the best for Jem and Scout, which is showing simple love. For instance, Atticus states, "She asked me to tell you you must try to behave like the little lady and gentleman that you are."(Lee,177). This shows that Atticus wants to be a positive influence to his kids. He also wants them to know he will always be there for them.
In the book Atticus is seen as the wisest person in Maycomb and from what he says is that could be true. Atticus is a great person to learn about the importance of not prejudging people saying things such as this, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee,27) Atticus tends to find the good in everyone and that is what people should do if they want to really live in equality. What has been explained in this essay is not only what Scout learns through characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, it’s also what we as people should learn about prejudice and do our best to avoid it. Will we ever eliminate prejudice? No, It’s human nature to have first impressions about everything, and there will always be evil people in world however, rather instead of trying to eliminate prejudice, we should work together to get to know one another better and not separate ourselves based on our
In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus shows how important it is to have the qualities of courage, tolerance, and empathy. He uses everything in Maycomb he can to help Jem and Scout learn the importance of morality. The lessons Atticus teaches are essential for everybody. Having morality is the first step to being a good person, always doing what is right no matter
He went against the most powerful force in his country, the government. He knew that he would not win, as he says, “I hope that I will be the last victim…[and to] inspire others to do the same”. He says that he didn’t not expect to win, but only to inspire others. In other words, he was courageous enough to have sacrificed himself in order to get his voice heard. This related to Atticus saying that courage is “when you know you’re licked”, and you still persist.
Some may think education is not important, but it can lead someone do doing the right thing, even if they are in a bad situation. When people are uneducated, they can lack empathy and integrity, which can have a big impact on the society around them. In situations where empathy or integrity is needed, it can be hard for people to express their thoughts or feelings to another person. When Bob Ewell attacked Jem and Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird, Arthur (Boo) Radley came to the rescue by stabbing Bob Ewell. When Mr. Heck Tate got there he knew what had happened, but to save Boo´s reputation, he said, ¨ Bob Ewell fell on his knife.
For all I know, I might have been treated better than he was. One thing that I believe that I would do the same as Elie is try to stay out of trouble. I know that some people in the camps would rebel which is something Elie didn’t do, but had thought about. I also think about doing things that I shouldn’t but stop because I would rather not get in trouble. Overall, Ellie’s experience would be harder than mine would
He wanted to do something that would help him feel less guilty, he wanted to be good again and this is why this line was so significant to Amir when he heard it and it is important to people in general. No one wants to do something that they regret, no one wants to commit sins and be a bad person, but sometimes our situations that we are stuck in and immaturity make us do something that we regret, it makes us commit sins and sometimes we are the bad people even if we committed the action unintentionally or in anger and when we hear that line of “There is a way to be good again”, we feel like there is hope, there is a way to be good again and it begins to feel very significant to us. Once upon a time, when I was 10, I was with my best friend and we had a plan to go see a movie together. He told his family that he cannot go out with them because he had plans with me and so his family left to go out to eat, but my other friend, who hated my best friend, said if I go with him he will buy me free movie tickets. I ditched my best friend and went to see movie with other friend and I felt so
He wasn’t the person he made me believe he was. He was verbally and emotionally abusive to me. I was always being put down and he made me think I couldn’t do anything right. When we were in public I had to act like everything was alright and he was a great guy. I didn’t want anyone to know what was going on, I didn’t know how to explain the whole situation.
If Amir did end up helping Hassan, then he would have been thanked by everyone, but instead Amir is faced with the sight of that scene forever. Amir’s passion was to be loved and applauded by Baba, but his moral obligation was to help his best friend. Turning away from his best friend just exemplified how he was scared and intimidated and that is the worst way to act going through life. The main lesson to take out of Hosseini’s quote is to make the decision that will be the most beneficial to the future because just by one wrong decision, life can go a whole different
