People who dwell on their deficits may envy and resent others who have more than they do. Some people who are unable to overcome social shortcoming fantasize about obtaining any means, good or bad, to satisfy every need and greed. Prevention of these instances is essential to living in a life filled with satisfaction and peace, away from evil. Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers or skills they are graced with. For the Villain with a smiling cheek says he is strong but he is truly week.
What I like most about him, is he never tried to keep anything from the audience. He admittedly said that at times, he’s struggling with himself because he still thinks that he was very smart to be able to have done those adjustments in Enron’s financial standing but also feels bad about the effect these mistakes did to the employees’ pension funds and whose lives he destroyed. I would have to agree with Mr. Fastow when he said that the accounting principles is vague and is open to any understanding and interpretation. This also goes to our laws governing the Philippines. Lawyers would interpret the rules and regulations differently and would defend it accordingly.
Edward Britton and Izod Wolfe are punished throughout the book showing the reader how edward is treated differently from Izod because of his background. Edward is treated better or less harshly but is despised by some of the guards and other boys at the prison, "It was because of this that certain guards - and some boys - thought that Britton was favoured, even uppity, and needed bringing down." (page. 75) by the guards like Hecht and Buckridge Both treated Edward Britton badly and wanted him gone for good, rotting in Port Arthur the prison for adults. while Edward is able to get along with some people like Mr. Patterson the surgeon.
He works to keep his reputation up: “Abby I may think of you softly from time to time. But I will cut off my hand before I’ll ever reach for you again. Wipe it out of mind. We never touched, Abby” (Miller 176). As a person, he is sort of twisted and sneaky.
The character of Jefferson is portrayed as a perpetrator, and reveals the traits that are distinct from what a usual perpetrator might exhibit. During the period before the date of his capital punishment, Jefferson holds an extremely negative perception of himself, and this sense of inferiority makes him feel embarrassed. He is isolated in the prison and chooses to be isolated and withdrawn from other people including his loved ones. Jefferson is seen as being mentally deficient, but he proves that he’s educated and knowledgeable, and has the ability to teach people a lesson about life and humanity. After the jury sentences Jefferson to die, Jefferson is left with a negative perception of himself.
The shift in perception from the 1950’s to today, clearly show the evolving nature of mental illness, institutions, and laws associated with both. McMurphy was an individual who did not have a mind that was suited to occupy in a psychiatric ward. He was simply a man convicted of an act that earned him a sentence to a prison work farm, but his actions only sent him to a mental institution, where he would be treated as any mentally insane individual when in fact he was no where near it. Randle Patrick McMurphy was someone who only wanted to make his life easier, but in fact was helping other individuals make their life easier at the ward. So, when in fact today’s society and laws would have called for more testing and researching into whether or not McMurphy has a mental illness, in the novel it was his calling to be there to help the patients find their light and stand up against tyranny.
He made his mind up that it was a bad book. He realized to that quality of composing the books of Mr. Leinster. First of all, he noticed that Mr. Leinster used the word “Zestful” too frequency. He also considered that “Zestful” is not an appropriated word to use in a novel or a story. Therefore, he won’t do that in his writing because it may decrease the reader’s attention.
Their sarcastic remarks to the powerless victim are evocative of the sarcasm Alex and his gang used on the victims that they beat and sometimes raped. Whilst Alex is suffering from the movie clips, Doctor Brodsky simply says ‘Excellent, excellent, excellent.’ Here, the Doctor is clearly portraying how he does not wish to show any sympathy towards helpless Alex, as he did do to his previous victims. The detail in which Alex goes into whilst in distress is extremely intense and vivid. Alex says ‘I was sweating a malenky bit with the pain in my guts and a horrible thirst and my gulliver going throb throb throb.’ For me, the repetition of the word ‘and’ explains to the reader just how many feelings of pain and discontent Alex is going through. Words such as ‘sweating’ ‘guts’ and ‘thirst’ are all words that we associate with labour and hard work and that is exactly what Alex seems to be going through.
No one wants to see their Ex with someone else. Even if, the parting was negligent; there was still a time when treasured memories were created. Even if, you want to be happy for your Ex, sincerely, you cannot. Sometimes, jealousy leads to an function of which Ex will find the first lover, which usually is the one that was dumped that initiates it. The thought of someone else making new memories that pushes aside the one’s you had made is sometimes painful.
I even asked my dad to stop it, but he said “Once you enter something, it’s really hard to turn your back on that”. So I kept my mouth shut. There are moments when I get tired hearing words like “you have to be like this, do this, change this, and be good and more”. It’s really so frustrating as time goes by. It’s as if you don’t have freedom to do stuffs you really want to do, because people are looking at you, Even though you don’t know them, they act as if they really know you, and one mistake can change everything.
