He got the real experience of joy and devastation instead of just seeing it behind the protection of his castle walls. Lastly, Gilgamesh learned how much his people worked and had to suffer because of him. At the end of the book, he looks at the wall his people have built for him and sees how much effort is really put into everything that seemed so small and easy to him before. The elders also supported him, gave him good advice and moral support. Gilgamesh never thought about how hard his people had it, and he would have continued to think that they had it easier than they really did.
The fact that the new laws were passing allowing taxes to occur was frightening to Dickenson. He believes that they should do whatever it takes for America to pay the taxes. He thinks it is wrong that they are getting away with not paying. He believes sitting back and not doing anything is counter productive to the cause. Dickenson and Franklin are on opposite sides.
The second poem “Shine, Perishing Republic” by Robinson Jeffers mostly resembles my attitude towards America right now. I do believe that the government is trying to do anything possible to gain more power even if it means ruining or destroying the environment and society. I feel like the government pretends to actually care about our well-being but we're brainwashed to actually think that. I really don't understand how people can actually do whatever it is they want to do even if it isn't right just to make themselves happy and to have a good time. This era is actually really messed up, it seems like there isn't any structure with our society that everyone is just going with the flow of what's “in”.
Candy has pledged his savings to the project of the dream ranch, and cannot let go of his one remaining hope of a pleasant old age when Crooks says it will never happen. When Candy fools himself, saying ‘You god-damn right we’re gonna do it’, we realize just how pathetic and vulnerable he is. It is very hard not to feel pity for him at this point. Overall, therefore, there are many characters in the book towards whom we feel sympathetic, and there are many who are also pathetic: generally the two things go together, but Curley is perhaps the exception who proves the
I set goals for myself and inspite of everything I've gone through, I've accomplished them and in some cases exceeded them. Those goals which people told me were un-attainable I have strived harder to attain. That which I was told I could not do, I worked harder to achieve. I will never pity myself for that which I don't have but instead I will work harder to get it. Many people have heroic qualities but being a hero and having heroic qualities are completely different.
Identifying the Ways That Americans are Wasteful The United States of America is a beautiful country but some Americans are very wasteful; they throw away things that should be recycled, buy things that they don’t need, get more food than they could consume and they do not respect to the nature for wasting water and gas. Many people in this country don not consider anything or anyone but themselves and they confuse waste with quality of life; “the more things I have, the better I enjoy the life”, they want new things for every change of season and we do not care where our old things go, instead of donating these possessions to a foundation or Salvation Army. Some of us throw belongings out that can still be used. Most people are in debt
True: * People, although maybe not everyone, were overall brought together by the war. Everyone had to get on with their everyday life, so there was no point in worrying about it. * People said that they would just have to accept the fact that thousands will die, but even more will be saved. Therefore there is no point in panicking. * There have been many different accounts written in people’s diaries saying that they did get together and that the blitz did help people.
And that control is not possible without unhappiness. And that is why they were not allowed control in their lives. At the time Aldous Huxley would have started writing this book, the world would have still been recovering from World War One. I can only imagine that a large portion of society at the time would have wished for a world where everybody is happy and care free. So Aldous Huxley creates a place where society is always happy and care free.
Sylvia Grega Baynton Essay It is shown in Baynton’s article titled, “Disability and the Justification of Inequality in American History” that many Americans believe disabilities to be a source of shame and embarrassment for the nation. It could be that exact shame and embarrassment that causes American’s today to continue to treat individuals with disabilities differently than the rest of society. We feel bad for them, they are not considered “normal”, but then again, what the hell is normal? Well societies definition of normal is able-bodied individuals, and people that can communicate in a social environment without the help of outside resources. Us who are deemed normal in our world, we generally avoid direct interaction with anyone
If there is no unification, no sense of selflessness, there can be no advancement or improvement. The most evident example of how this is true is in athletics. When a team comes together at the beginning of their respective season, they all agree to unify themselves and set their eyes on one goal, one championship, and one team. They unify themselves from the start to assure each other of their commitment to the goal. When game time comes, they all come together as one and each player does his own assignment, own job in order to help the team be successful.
