The constant craving for both physical and emotional connections as well as the comfort humans find in each other are demonstrative of humankind’s true values. Humanity’s natural inclination toward bettering situations is demonstrative of the inherently good nature of humankind, that allows for societal advancements. In Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch, the protagonist Theo Decker experiences many hardships that cause him to make questionable decisions.
“There is nothing truer in this world than the love of a good dog” (Mira Grant.) In fact, almost all animals contribute plenty of constant support and care for their owners, from all around the world. Animals like these, can significantly influence people’s lives by being a hyper and caring friend, providing relief, and assisting people in need. Individuals can pursue a less lonely life, by gaining a new friend, like an animal companion. A personal example, is the fact that life without an animal, is lonesome.
Anatole France, a French poet, journalist, and novelist, once said, “It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal. Until one has loved an animal, part of one’s soul remains unawakened”. Animals in general are very important to the human race. More specifically, dogs are very beneficial to us and that is why they are often called 'man's best friend’. They are friendly and loyal.
This allows Viola, Maria, and Feste to, in a sense, become figures of virtues and do what they can to pull the others away from their excess. Viola calls Olivia out on her self-pity by interrupting her state of mourning by calling her selfish for not sharing her beautiful features with the world and keeping herself locked away in darkness. She tells Olivia, “Lady, you are the cruel’st she alive / if you will lead these graces to the grave / and leave the world no copy,” (1.5. 236-238). She also, in a sense, helps Orsino come out of his self-righteous nature because he falls in love with her for her.
Re-reading this book was a joy. I do like the book because it keeps you on the edge of your seat and I have always found Greek mythology particularly interesting; this series is one of my favorites. I think the author’s message is that things can and will get better in the end even after everything life throws at you; all the monsters that Percy has to fight can be a metaphor for all the situations in life that ‘attack’ you. Overall, this is a great book and I would highly recommend it to

Cassius does not back down following the almost dictatorial pronouncements of his equal, Brutus, even though he absolutely disagree heartedly with most of Brutus’s decisions. To accomplish his goal of completely removing Caesar from power he tries everything he can. He finally resorts to using his keen insight in human nature to convince Brutus by means of a long drawn out, passionate argument, coupled with bogus notes. In the conversation with Brutus, Cassius says, Brutus sense of honor, nobility, and pride more than he presents concrete example of Caesar’s actions. Then he ends up killing
It is easy to get a crowd together and give just the enticing information about serving to make it better and it is easy to motivate. A happy, determined, competitive, relating entertainer can be some great characteristics to be a servant leader, but it can also have its downsides. Occasionally, entertainers, like myself, can be a bit too much and be overly determined and exciting and competitive and get distracted by the real reason that they are serving in the first place, to honor and bring glory to Christ. As humans, we can tend to want to receive all the glory and all the attention in the fact that we are leading when really the goal as a servant leader is to point others to Christ by serving and
To most people, a hero is one who possesses the powerful traits that seem to move the hearts of hundreds of people. Such traits include: helpfulness, the key to building other’s trust in you and your motives, leadership, the trait that helps one to use their intellect and common sense to make smart decisions and lead others responsibly and positively, and care, the way to accumulating countless friends and followers through one’s kindness, concern, and philanthropy for other people.
