Another significant value of the Puritans was pride. Pride meant a great deal to them, without it their life was not worth living. Right at the beginning of the play there is an example of this. Which is when Reverend Parris worries that word of his daughter and niece being involved in witchcraft will get out. The reason that this concerns Parris is because he takes a lot of pride in his reputation with the church.
I consider this scene the most suspenseful scene and after the city have been bombed, Montag and his new friends go in search of survivors to create a new and knowledge filled society. This created a rather satisfying ending because not only did I feel like the entire plot could actually happen in real life but that Montag`s personality would be to save those that he could and make a better life for them. Montag`s personality could be described as rash, inarticulate, self-obsessed, and too easily swayed. At times he is not even aware of why he does things, feeling that his

Suddenly, inescapably, the responsibility for alleviating her misery became hers: she had to make a choice. "But I love him, doctor." The triumph of the doctrine of the sovereignty of sentiment over sense would have delighted the Romantics, no doubt, but it has promoted an unconscionable amount of misery. "Your boyfriend is unlikely to change. He strangles you because he enjoys it and gets a feeling of power from doing so.
Gatby's pitfall was considering that if he became a wealthy man, Daisey would really like him. Daisey did not ever really really like him because no issue how much prosperity he had, he was from a different public category. Tom disliked Gatsby both for adoring his spouse and for trying to be his public equivalent. He was able to get his vengeance on Gatsby by effective the infuriated Wilson that Gatsby had intentionally murdered Myrtle. In the end, it was Gatsby's failing to identify his position in their community that led to his
However, whereas Victor’s hatred for the monster and relentless will to kill it drives him to his death, Walton ultimately pulls back from his treacherous mission having learned from Victor’s example, how destructive the thirst for knowledge can be. Also, in the novel, Walton highlights the fact that whilst success is great, “while glowing with enthusiasm of success” (7) if you have no friends it doesn’t matter because there is nobody to enjoy your accomplishments with. As a result Walton
Or like I’ll give away that I don’t deserve anyone’s gratitude and really they should all hate me for what I’ve done but everyone loves me for it and it’s driving me crazy” (Powers, 143). What makes this so powerful, is the fact that Bartle, the narrator of the book, feels like a monster, feels like a murderer, while the outside world views him as a hero; an image he believes is wrongfully painted upon soldiers who have killed and done injustice to humanity. While one can argue that the war was one huge injustice to humanity, the reasons why we started the war were to fix even greater
This idea of power was demonstrated nearly throughout the whole story, because we see the control the government has on his people. In the story, the government degrades the intelligent, strong, and handsome people. He does this for equality amongst the community. An example we see of power in the story is in the near end. Harrison, son of George and Hazel, gets taken away for being an above-average human.
So when we talk about Anonymous and the great things they do, it's important to realize that these people fight “the man” simply because it’s the status quo. While the media lauds them for being everything that is right with the internet, and they are, they are also everything that is wrong with it. They are a microcosm of anarchy, with no morals, empathy, or agenda. And, while they are the tip of the spear for the people who wish to protect the uncensored internet, like any good double-edged weapon, they are equally a destabilizing force that needs to be regarded
There are some men who think of themselves in grandiose terms and are just upset that the world have failed them. Mass killers are so caught up in themselves that they think the choices they make to kill others are the thing to do. They seek their own fame through violence, and also revenge on those people who did not give them any attention they thought they deserved. In Jack Levin and James Alan Fox’s article, “Extreme Killing: Understanding Serial and Mass Murder,” Fox says, “It's very important to them that the world doesn't view them as some nut that killed for no reason. In their minds, they are good guys” (pg 10).
