Some people except me for who I am, but others don’t. So that’s why it’s a good thing to choose the right people. These 2 themes are very important to the book and our own lives. They can relate to multiple of us in many different ways, they could be bad or they could be good. I picked these 2 because I thought they were good ones and could relate to a lot of people.
While the relationship between him and Roderick is never fully explained, the reader does learn that they were boyhood friends. That Usher writes to the Narrator, urging him to give him company in his time of distress, suggests the close rapport between the two men. But Poe's story is a chronicle of both distancing and identification. In other words, the Narrator seems to remove himself spiritually from Usher, terrified of his house, his illness, his appearance, but as the narrative progresses he cannot help but be drawn into Usher's twisted world. Alas, family (if not incest) trumps friendship at the end, when Usher and Madeline are reunited and the Narrator is cast off on his own into the raging storm.
Kindness can take time to recognize but in the end, it is never forgotten. Even when life becomes more difficult, it is important to always be kind to others. In The Green Mile by Stephen King, it is suggested that “kindness” will sometimes put you into difficult times, but that it is important to continue being kind to others and that eventually, people will see your kindness. According to Booker T. Washington - “If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up”, means that kindness affects everybody. Although it may not be seen immediately, it could take years to be noticed.
In Victorian times when Rossetti was writing, this would certainly have been considered shameful. The narrator answers the questions in the first quatrain, naming her sister Maude as the person who told her parents what was happening. Andrew Foster begins his poem in first person perspective indicating that the narrator is narrating a tale to the audience however the poem is actually aimed at the narrators' younger brother and is written in free verse making the poem sound like a story being told in spoken English. The narrator starts off with the tone which the metaphor `Saddled with you' set suggesting the negative feelings the speaker has for his brother, as if he is an inconvenience, restricting the freedom of the speaker. With the third stanza makes it clear that the older boys are still children, despite how they would like to be seen by the world: they 'chased Olympic Gold'
At times he feels that they are bonded by competition and deep enmity. Other times he feels that Finny is sincere, honest, and a true friend. After Finny’s injury and return to school, Gene feels it is his duty to protect Finny and enforce Finny’s ideas and beliefs even if it means not following through on his plans to enlist or personal goals. Considering Gene’s descriptions of the events in the novel, his descriptions of Finny, and his descriptions of their relationship, write an essay arguing whether or not Finny is a good friend to Gene. Also, you may want to consider and include whether Gene would have been better off without Finny in his life.
In keeping a faithfully open mindset relationships are built, you may even feel love. Love is the strongest aspect of faith because it never falters when it is true. Although the strongest aspect of faith, it is also the most difficult to develop. Love and faith can both have very positive affects on your future. Having people who actually care around you can give you the strength to accomplish anything.
Belonging to certain groups has its benefits, by which we gain a sense of security, confidence and the feeling of having a place in this world. Our Friends and imitate relationships we make with others are one of the strongest groups we belong to by choice. The Groups we choose to belong to are because of shared values, interests, appearance and so on, which in return gives us the sense we belong and connection to others. In Stephan Chbosky’s novel ‘The perks of being a wallflower’ , Charlie was an outsider and never did fit in until one day he found himself belonging to group. “I just remember walking between them and feeling for the first time that I belonged somewhere”.
He as well mentions his single obvious friend during the novel Nigel Kratzman and his obsession with trucks. They are friends but their relationship is not as good as it could be due to trust. One quote that shows this is “Kratz was like that, weird, I could never trust him.” This shows the reader that Steven isn’t really into friendship. The poem ‘This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison’ by Samuel Coleridge, which I’m studying, uses an imaginative journey to
THE LAWS OF ATTRACTION: How We Choose And Keep Our Friendships Carolyn Troadec Los Angeles Valley College Carolyn Troadec p. 1 Most people would agree that the friendships they hold with others are incredibly important to the quality of their lives, and yet the “architecture” of how we choose and make friends has remained largely unexamined. Research now shows that friendship doesn’t “just happen”; there are quantifiable factors involved. Some are obvious, but some are not.
