Being related to a Hazran would have meant suffering for all of them, so Baba did the righteous thing and kept it to himself in order to keep his reputation in the community. This was utterly selfish of Baba, but he had no other choice because if he told, his reputation and his life would have been ruined. Hassan would have been Hazaran no matter what, as it would not have mattered if he was part Pashtun. He still would have been categorized the same, which makes Baba's decision to not tell the secret unrelated to Hassan's
Asking Jan instead of just assuming Jan did it for other reasons is not fair to Jan because Ken is not listening mindfully to what Jan has to say about it. Another way Ken could go about the conversation is explain that he is hurt by what Jan has said to Shannon, instead of saying that Jan ruined his chances and belittled Jan without giving her the chance to explain what had happened. Ken should have sat down with Jan when he wasn’t still so angry and
Noah’s feelings caused him to react in a way that was unreasonable and unnecessary. Noah did this because he was unable to reason what it would mean for him and the people around him. His feelings got the best him. Because Noah loved Ivy, and Ivy did not love him in return, Lucius being the reason, Noah felt that by killing Lucius, Ivy’s reason for not loving Noah would be gone, and that she would want to marry Noah instead of Lucius. In Noah’s reasoning, if Lucius dies, Ivy will forget about him and be forced to move on, but is not the case.
Books are constantly beint banned. Parents do not want their children to be exposed to materials the find inapropriate. Although it is easy to understand a parent wanting to protect his/her child sometimes borders are crossed. People are right when they say limits should be set, but the question comes up..."who should be held responsible for setting them.?" Who gets to choose what is right and not right.
In the passage, the author writes, “He did not want them themselves really. They were too complicated. There was something else. Vaguely he wanted a girl but he did not want to have to work to get her. He would have liked to have a girl but he did not want to
He does not want to get involved in the politics or the lying involved in a courtship. The army had taught him that he did not need a girl. Krebs likes the looks of the girls, but does not want to have to talk. Krebs had not wanted to come home, but he had
I ain’t gonna talk to you or nothing.” His lack of sophistication doesn’t allow him to keep a conversation where his main focus aren’t rabbits, he is unaware that she is the one controlling things and he is placed in a difficult situation. “What’s the matter with me?’ She cried ‘Ain’t I got a right to talk to nobody?” in this part we see that Curley’s wife is very unhappy she goes on a rant hoping that Lennie will listen but he interrupts her talking about the dream, she confides in him like Crooks did, but Lennie’s lack of emotional maturity doesn’t allow him to form any kind relationship and his mental and verbal limitations doesn’t allow him to form any conversation with Curley’s
Lennie's previous problem with a woman at Weed and Curley's wife's aggressive manner combined with Curley's paranoid bravado and immediate dislike for Lenny make a conflict concerning the three characters inevitable. When George lies to the boss by telling him that he is Lennie's cousin, he reinforces the suspicion that there is something suspect about their friendship. The boss cannot understand that two men would have any concern for each other unless they were bound by familial connections, and George's lie demonstrates that this view is widespread. George, in particular, has cares that occur beyond a narrow scope of self-interest, a view that clashes with the widespread individualist mindset. He is in some ways comparable to Candy, whose care for a decrepit old dog marks him as a weak and sentimental
No one wants to be the “sissy” who decides to cut the trip short. Had any women been around with the men, the chances that anyone would put their hook in the water would have been presumably slimmer. Indeed, when Stuart realizes the extent of Claire’s outrage he tells her, “I won’t have you passing judgment on me. Not you” (70). This statement suggests Stuart is used to having others pass judgment on him, namely other men, but will not allow his wife, or perhaps any woman, the same luxury; it could also suggest that his wife’s judgment counts little, or less than that of the
Men and women seek hope in his or her lives in order to make something of themselves useful, but they cannot find it because of the fact that they are too isolated by his or her surroundings. In the novel Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck illustrates Lennie’s friend, George, as a person who has a bit of hope, but is worried that his “partner” is going to ruins his life once again like at the time they were at Weed. George is often characterized as a person who has to take care of Lennie because he knows that the only person that could ever make things go wrong is Lennie. “Am I My Brother’s Keeper” specifically represents George because it shows that even though he has little hope on his side, he has to take of one’s life, and that is Lennie Small. When George has hope on his side, he says, “We’ll have a big vegetable patch and a rabbit hutch and chickens.
