None of the citizens in The Giver's community have ever experienced color, which surpresses their creativity at the root. Without something as simple as color affecting people's decisions, diversity, and creativity, life is dull before it even has the chance to become exciting. With Jonas and The Giver being the exceptions in the colorblind community, they are the only ones who realize what the entire society is missing. Jonas expresses his grief on the topic in the following quote: "Well ... "Jonas had to stop and think it through. "If everything's the same, then there aren't any choices!
More than anyone, a boy needs his father to approve of him and teach him how to be a man. Well, his father did not show him the love he required growing up. In all of Paul’s efforts to please his father, he was ignored and inadequate to his father’s expectations. In fact, his father praised a young man that worked as a clerk and insisted that Paul ought to be more like that gentleman. His father refused to give Paul money and argued that he has a job, so he can pay his own expenses.
He only cares about making money and he will do anything to get it. Whatever he earns goes straight into his wallet that he keeps close to himself rather than give it to the church. The Pardoner lives off of scamming people of their money. He is a good preacher, but unlike the Parson, he does not follow what he preaches and he doesn’t care whether or not if anyone
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent, or blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property. We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by this wealth. We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, and no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another. We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamentals things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.” This quote was stated by, John (Fire) Lame Deer, a wichasha wakan (The Holy Man).
These are my principles. Never at my hands will a traitor be honoured above the patriot.” Creon refuses to listen to any opposition that he is wrong even from his own son. When Haemon tries to talk to him he becomes insulted and sees no reason as to why he is wrong and why he should listen to Haemon a younger man and therefore a man with inferior intellect. “Now don’t, please, be quite so single minded, self
With no proof of what Billy Bishop did, he and many others believe he deserves the recognition that he got. He does not deserve the medals that were given to him because of the very little evidence that exists to support his case. Billy Bishop is not a true hero and should never be considered one because he’s not trust worthy, there’s no proof, and the mission itself wasn’t possible. Humans have no reason to even take Billy seriously because of his history as a human and the wrong deeds he’s done. He simply is not trust worthy, and there is plenty of evidence to prove that he is.
He is free from the diseases of racism and classism so widespread in those days. Atticus does not judge, that’s the biggest difference between him and the rest of the townspeople. He once said ‘ You never really understand a person until you consider things from their point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it'. Atticus is the most nonjudgmental person in all of Maycomb. • As a father Atticus can be said to be a great father.
By placing his faith in man rather than God, he does not receive "any more comfort" (Everyman 304). The same discouragement greets Everyman after his talks with Cousin and Kindred. After Kindred and Cousin leave him, Everyman realizes that "fair promises men to me make, / but when I have most need they me forsake" (Everyman 370-371). Since man will not help him, he turns to goods. Everyman realizes that the goods he has loved his whole life do nothing but hinder his eternal happiness.
Being Well Liked Motif Willy is at the bottom of the totem pole in a capitalistic world. He owns nothing, and he makes nothing, so he has no sense of accomplishment. Robbed of this, he develops the theory that if a person is well liked and has a great deal of personal attractiveness, then all doors will automatically be opened for him. Willy built his life around these dreams. However, for Willy to live by his ideals necessitates building or telling many lies, and these illusions replace reality in Willy's mind.
