What the Elizabethan’s called revenge is more of like what we like to call retribution. Retribution is more of an intellectual type of thinking, it is deserved punishment. During this Renaissance time period having this deserved justice is what was thought to be known as revenge. Justice back then had less to do with honor which is what the modern use of revenge is fueled from, than it had to do with reputation. In other words before people were to take revenge, they would try and think about the situation first to decide whether taking revenge would be just.
Made a list of all persons who had harmed us and become willing to go to any lengths to get even with them. 9. Got direct revenge on such people wherever possible, except when to do so would cost us our lives. 10. Continued to take inventory of others, and when they were wrong promptly and repeatedly told them about it.
According to Nicolas Perrot, this sport was known for its aggressive nature, “One can hear the noise they make when they hit one another...Some are seen with broke legs or arms, or are even killed as a result.” (Nicolas Perrot, 1973) (213). When reading Nicolas Perrot’s quote, it really made me think about how some people could go that far just to win a simple game. It may be something to be proud of but after the dirty work is done, you do not feel any better about yourself, especially if you had killed someone. This sport did seem to signify class, gender and ethnic values (216). It was known to be a Canadian sport which was a very big attraction for Canadian men at the time.
We may go round our history books either lambasting or extolling powerful leaders, but we will always come to the conclusion that power does corrupt a man. The thirst for power is unbounded and the lamentable consequences often quash a man. Getting power is just the onset of melancholy, disaster, lugubriousness and sorrow. All the leaders throughout history were undoubtedly very strong and were feared but we often learn that they were sordid, uncouth, perpetrators, lascivious, perplexed and unscrupulous. They often committed a myriad of staggering sins and believed they were masters of perpetuity.
Integrity is very important at all times; I have learned this the hard way. I jeopardized my integrity for something I thought was the easy way out. I have learned that when you think it is the easy way it just causes more problems in the long run because you constantly have to try and hide what you have done, and you eventually always get caught. A wise man has always told me that you can never give just a piece of your integrity away. It is either all or nothing, and one you give up your integrity you may never get it back.
"When I'm Gone" [Introduction] Yeah... It's my life... My own words I guess... [Verse 1] Have you ever loved someone so much, you'd give an arm for? Not the expression, no, literally give an arm for? When they know they're your heart And you know you were their armour And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm her But what happens when karma, turns right around and bites you? And everything you stand for, turns on you to spite you?
Reality Television Critique After suffering a brutal hour of ridiculously cheesy, and fake commercials, as well as a tedious television program, I have learned more than ever how much I despise reality television shows and all that go with them. I used up my hour watching the Maury Povich show on KTVU. The theme of this particular program was young women who were particularly unattractive as children, and then smoking hot, sexy ten’s, as they grew older. These “ugly” young women were all ditched on their childhood dates or proms for other more attractive girls. These girls talked about being teased continuously, as well as not having many friends because of their apparent hideousness.
She will stand up to anyone and anything, warrior-women Ugly Girl, as she puts it. She ends up dropping off the basketball team after not doing well in a game which also tells us that she is afraid of getting humiliated and be a laugh to others, but that is not her major problem. Her major problem is that she also overheard what Matt says and she is the one to convince the principal that Matt should be forgiven and allowed to return to school. What she does not count on is that she begins to actually be attracted to Matt, and for a girl who is been operating independently of what other people want and think, it is sort of a hard thing to deal
Girls see guys go for the girls that dress scantily clad, the ones that would rather wake up 2 hours earlier just to cake their faces on, the ones that rather go to a school that has hotter guys than a better education, the ones that flirt with all the boys, the girls that think about themselves and have no regards for others, we see it, we good girls see it all. We good girls are usually deemed the ugly friend, the backup, the one the guys would make their wives, but not their girlfriend at the moment. We are the ones that fall for the good boys, but the boys are blinded by the "beauty" of the bad girls. They get caught up in those girls, and what does that leave us good girls to do? Wait.
