George does not care about Lennie’s situation and he trust in him as Lennie trust in George. In chapter four, the George says, “A guy needs somebody-to be near him” shows that people need other people to be strong and take better decisions. No matter who is that person and how smart is he or she. George does not care about who Lennie is and he considered Lennie his friend, showing that intelligence is not everything. All Lennie actions show his innocence.
Antigone Essay Although Creon is a loving ruler just because he doesn't everything that benefits the people of Thebes, he doesn’t listen to what they want to say so he is not a loving ruler. Creon in the play Antigone demonstrates he is very selfish and doesn’t care about other’s ideas. I disagree that Creon is a loving ruler because Creon is stubborn and doesn’t listen to advice and Creon doesn’t listen or believe the prophet. Creon is stubborn and doesn’t listen to advice. All of Creon’s action was his own idea and will always think it is correct.
Actions are then just if they sustain or are consonant with such harmony. Such a conception of individual justice is virtue ethical because it ties justice (acting justly) to an internal state of the person rather than to (adherence to) social norms or to good consequences; but Plato's view is also quite radical because it at least initially leaves it an open question whether the just individual refrains from such socially proscribed actions as lying, killing, and stealing. Plato eventually seeks to show that someone with a healthy, harmonious soul wouldn't lie, kill, or steal, but most commentators consider his argument to that effect to be highly deficient. Aristotle is generally regarded as a virtue ethicist par excellence, but his account of justice as a virtue is less purely virtue ethical than Plato's because it anchors individual justice in situational factors that are largely external to the just individual. Situations and communities are just, according to Aristotle, when individuals receive benefits according to their merits, or virtue: those most
You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227). Huck is trying to follow what society views as normal. Although he attempts to pray for it, he knows he cannot because it is not what is right. The reason Huck is unable to pray what he wanted is because, in his heart, he knows it is wrong. He knows that he should not turn in Jim because Jim has done nothing but help Huck in his adventure and has done nothing wrong to Huck.
While Socrates arguments may be sound in his opinion, I'm not sure if I agree with them. Just because of the good laws of the state benefited Socrates and helped him in his upbringing, it doesn't mean that he has to remain completely loyal to them for his entire life. His main point about never returning an unjust act with another makes sense to a degree, but only if you agree with his view that the soul is the only thing that matters and not the body. While I understand that point, I don' think every unjust act ruins the soul. Some acts such as telling a white lie in some situations are
“When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance. The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.” In Joan Didion’s essay, with the help of periodic sentences and metaphorical language, she explains that self-respect does not come from others but from within oneself; it cannot be achieved when one is averse to oneself. Didion was looking for outer gratification, but through the ordeal of being rejected, gains the knowledge that self-respect is proper value of one’s character, and learning to love oneself. One can only be truly happy when one learns to accept oneself.
Odysseus is no way any god or faultless man but just a man that just wants to be perfect. Odysseus negative views are not liked but they make Odysseus positive points look very strong. Is Odysseus some kind of god or is Odysseus a perfect man that keeps his positive views would not be real exceptional nor great they would be just views for people to listen to. When Odysseus weak points get him into problems Odysseus always uses his strong points to free him from that problem. Take a look at this example when his recklessness action with the Cyclops in the cave could have destroyed him and all his friends were going to die, his courageousness and intelligent approach were capable to save nearly all of them without any problems at
Mo-tzu presented a very well thought of argument against music . This can be seen when he stated Although the body knows they are comfortable , the mouth knows they are gratifying , the eyes know they are delightful , and the ears know they are pleasing , yet they are found not to be in accordance with the deeds of the sage-kings of antiquity and not to contribute to the benefits of the people at present (Par .1 , Book VIII , Chapter XXXII In saying this , he implied that music did not have anything to do with the greatness and success of the sage-kings . that it did not fulfill the basic needs , unlike the boats and the carts that were built from the same contribution of the ancient citizens . It slowed production by wasting labor on things
he is impervious to the mysticism of the house and furthermore the woman. This is exemplified in ‘he cannot feel terror’. The reasoning for this is because the man posseses pure rationality, and therefore does not succumb to these fears. Carter may be trying to
Impetuousness, if they had only waited then time would have kept them apart and alive. Society, for a conveniently vague concept which can encompass everything else. Pointing the finger of who is at fault is actually very easy, but it does not help us or anyone in the least. At the end of the play, we do not see any of the characters accusing each other. The message is understanding and forgiveness.
