I couldn’t imagine devoting most of my life to building a dome. I was amazed he never quit with all the mishaps that happened with the marble and just after working on it for so long that that was all he did eat sleep and breath the dome. Filippo was very cunning and funny with all the pranks he played on people. For instance his greatest rival was Lorenzo Ghiberti and they had to work together on the dome and to prove he was superior to him, Filippo pretended to be dying so Lorenzo had to be in charge of the project. Once Lorenzo messed up Filippo came back and fixed everything and embarrassed
He blames Charlie as the one who caused him to lose his boxing career and he also blames himself for his lack of bravery to act according to his own will.

devil in the white city: burnham vs. holmes Erik Larson writes, “Beneath the gore and smoke and loom, this book is about the evanescence of life, and why some men choose to fill their brief allotment of time engaging in the impossible, others in the manufacture of sorrow. Larson’s purpose is to compare and contrast the two main characters, Daniel Burnham and Henry H. Holmes. One is a successful architect and the other is a successful serial killer. Burnham was the famous architect that built the World’s Fair in less than two years. Holmes is America’s first serial killer.
He paints a picture of greed and corruption on so many levels that one would wonder why the Empire survived Justinian’s regain. If this was the only history we had from the sixth century one might want to believe everything he said because it is a very compelling story. However there are many records and writings that have survived that conflict with this, even Procopius’ own books show how effective Justinian was at war and rebuilding the city. I think it is an important book however the reader needs to understand that the author had a heavy bias and likely ulterior motives when writing
Malik Grant Mr.Womack 11-27-12 World Lit. Death Speech The great question of our existence is not who is worthy of life, but rather, who among us is worthy of death. The events leading to Caesar's death were the accumulation of power by Caesar. The senate flattered him with honors that no other man in Roman history was given and more were in the works. Caesar was offered a crown and although he refused it, some thought he was not sincere.
It was an audacious move for Hale to leave Salem, but even more so for him to return. He feels incredibly guilty for having signed off so many people to their deaths, saying, “There is blood on my head! Can you not see the blood on my head! !” While Hale’s return to Salem may not have saved John Proctor and Rebecca Nurse, he encouraged people to

Acquiring this absolute power however, was no easy feat, and Caesar had well equipped himself through previous expeditions of Europe and the ancient world with all the resources necessary to gain power in Ancient Rome. One such "expedition" was Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul. On this expedition, Caesar went to great lengths to write a thorough book about his conquest, and to justify his expenditures to the Roman public and Senate. Through Gaul, Caesar found a way to acquire power and prestige for himself within the Roman political arena. It is debated however as to why Caesar wrote about Gaul, whether it be to bask in his glory of his nine-year campaign or to use as propaganda for the political upheaval he would soon mount against Rome.
Larry also has an affect on the heroism aspect of the novela. In my opinion Larry LaSalle is not a hero, because despite helping Nicole become a dancing star “he made me feel like a ballerina” and Francis “a table tennis champion”, he still has a horrible secret. He is not even ashamed of attacking “sweet young things”. He himself asked “does that one sin of mine wipe away all the good things?” But you could argue that he has ruined as many lives as he has helped. He doesn’t seem to have a conscience like Francis does; he is amazed that Francis feels bad at all ”you wanted to die because of that?” This shows that Larry could be still ruthless and that it didn’t mean anything to Francis.
