The Chapter quote that I chose is from Chapter 7 “Harry Gets A Girlfriend”.

I picked this quote because it is a good quote and a good chapter to go with it. This chapter is all about how Harry gets a girlfriend and it goes with the title of the chapter. This quote means that something that look normal and sometimes they are mean people when you have them alone with you.

Finally, the racism in To Kill A Mockingbird is very normalized and present. Although by seeing these clear acts of racism, readers are reminded that although it may happen frequently it can prove to be problematic.

“There are more. Different pens, different handwriting…” (Anderson 186) There are many different girls who have written how awful Andy is and how he has mistreated them as well. This shows that what Andy did to Melinda wasn’t in any way a mistake or an accident, it was just something he does to girls. While there may be an explanation for his evil behavior, something that impacted him and made him this way, this quote clearly shows that he has a pattern of evil behavior and it 's just who he is. That is why I stated in my thesis statement that people are for the most part inherently good.

First grade was the year I got sent to the wall and ran away.
At first exposure, Eldorado seemed a temporary sigh of relief from the the critical and cynical nature of the other chapters within Candide. When Candide and Cacambo leave Eldorado, it seemed to be only another opportunity for misfortune in a cruel world, and another opportunity for Voltaire to prove Leibniz wrong. Instead, Eldorado is a deliberate allegory for a perfect society, and the troubles it would pose. The land of Eldorado, ostensibly perfect, is used as an exaggerated comparison to highlight the unfortunate realities of the outside world, but more importantly to portray how, within a utopian society, happiness and contentment can be overlooked for the basic human necessity: change.
