Soon Martin and Tavington were able to face off, one on one. As Tavington gained the upper hand in their vicious fight, he muttered, "Kill me before the war is over, will you? It appears you are not the better man." As he swang his sword ready to kill Benjamin, Martin stabbed him with a bayonet-fitted musket and replied, "You are right... my sons were better men." So he impaled Tavington in the throat, killing him.
In the quote below Rand explains why she rejects religion outright, and she believes man himself deserves the attention: Just as religion has preempted the field of ethics, turning morality against man, so it has usurped the highest moral concepts of our language, placing them outside this earth and beyond man’s reach. “Exaltation” is usually taken to mean an emotional state evoked by contemplating the supernatural. “Worship” means the emotional experience of loyalty and dedication to something higher than man… But such concepts do name actual emotions, even though no supernatural dimension exists; and these emotions are experienced as uplifting or ennobling, without the self-abasement required by religious definitions.
I cannot believe how brutal the Hutus were toward the Tutsis. Flugence describes his fist killing as such “First I cracked an old mama’s skull with a club. But she was already lying almost dead on the ground, so I did not feel death at the end of my arm. I went home without even thinking about it” (pg. 25 of Machete Season online version on Google Play).
From this time forth I never will speak words”. This last line of his does not reveal his motive for his deceptive ways. The fact that he “will never speak words” shows his deliberate silence. His lack of guilt and remorse, which is said to be of “devilish and evil” behaviour, is also evident in this text as he does not apologise for his actions, making his behaviour more terrifying. Iago’s emptiness of purpose, along with his lack of remorse, shows how different he is from the human race and how he bears no human emotional qualities, which therefore sets him apart from society and makes him an
“From this it is sufficiently clear that he cannot be a deceiver: for all cunning and deception presuppose some shortcoming, as is plain by the natural light.”(37) In Descartes third meditation he has proven and answered questions that he has set out to prove. Descartes has ruled out the possibilities of the ‘cause’ being; himself, that existence has always been, his parents, and/or of something less perfect than God. Descartes has proven that God does in fact exist and as such must not be a
Sadly again, almost none of these paradoxes are quoted in Zeno's original words by their various commentators, but in paraphrase. 1. Background Before we look at the paradoxes themselves it will be useful to sketch some of their historical and logical significance. First, Zeno sought to defend Parmenides by attacking his critics. Parmenides rejected pluralism and the reality of any kind of change: for him all was one indivisible, unchanging reality, and any appearances to the contrary were illusions, to be dispelled by reason and revelation.
David starts to develop hatred towards his father, wanting to hurt and give him the pain he has felt over the years. “[David] pictured things, played them out in [his] head, a hundred different violent acts.... It was when [David] realized [he] could kill him and get away with it.” (Gould, 115) David’s anger towards his father has turned in to infuriate. Now that David has more power over his father, he uses the same method Carl used over him; separating from reality and physical abuse. “[David] jumped [Private Island] and hit [Carl],
You tallow face!” In this quote the consequences of Juliet defining her father’s authority is seen through the way that Capulet’s attitude changes, from treating her with respect to treating her like scum the minute she disobeys her father’s authority. Imagery is employed to emphasise Capulet’s harshness and the manner in which his attitude changes after Juliet purports to disobey him. Disobeying authority in the context of the law mostly has very serious consequences. An example of this is Act 3 scene 1 in which Romeo kills Tybalt in order to avenge Mercutios death. Although Romeos thirst for revenge was satisfied the consequences were dire.
"(1033-1041) Oedipus wronged Laios here by killing him over a small incident and fit of anger. Clearly, destiny dealt Oedipus a mournful hand, but I can’t help but to believe that it was the choice of Oedipus to act in anger, striking out and smiting the man in haste, which set his destiny in
