Although, what he does is understandable considering that he is a young, inexperienced boy who struggles with “the war” (24), self-esteem, jealousy, fear (and other emotions), and maturing, or “growing up”, with no real guidance. Gene jounces Finny off the limb, not because he wants to. It is an impulse, a quick subconscious, involuntary reaction. Gene recalls, “Holding firmly to the trunk, I took a step toward him, and then my knees
Mike Judge fantasticly highlights the absurdities through his use of characters and blatantly obvious situations of pointless office work. Just as it is completely absurd to have humans cooped up in tiny cubicles all day; it’s likewise just as if not more absurd to expect monkeys to produce Hamlet. Mike Judge is the director I would like to hire because he would highlight the comical lunacy in tasking monkeys to produce Hamlet. Mike Judge was a cartoon director up until his movie Office Space so he has experience with non-human characters.
At the same time he felt some remorse, and knew what he did was wrong, and to cope with what he chose to do to his cat, he drank the memory away. Later in the Story, out of nowhere, one morning he decides to “slip a noose around its neck and hung it to the limb of a tree” with nothing said about anything going wrong with the cat and him. After he had hung the cat it says that he “hung it with the tears streaming from my eyes, and with the bitterest remorse at my heart”. Now why would you with no reason kill your cat, but at the same time be crying and have so much emotions of remorse? That is insane, and alcohol is the reason?
~Samuel Butler Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. ~Theodore Roosevelt Whatever we worship, short of God, is sure to be our undoing. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960 Toss your dashed hopes not into a trash bin but into a drawer where you are likely to rummage some bright morning. ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... People think pleasing God is all God care about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.
In The Crucible, Reverend Parris longs to belong to society and therefore embraces the challenge to belong. He is seen to go to any lengths to belong during Act 1. Parris uses a metaphor “I do not wish to put out like the cat whenever some majority feels the whim” to emphasise his wish to belong and not be rejected by society. The imagery of a cat is used to reveal an underlying message of the association that cats have with witchcraft. His superiority is being undermined and he is being characterized as a cat, which demeans his superior position in a theocratic society.
The root of Creon’s immoral behavior, towards Antigone, is not an inability to distinguish between what is wrong and what is right, but rather a fear of what would happen if he were to choose the morally right way to function. In the play, Creon says that he is very afraid to stray from the established laws in anyway, until the very day he dies (Sophocles 1495). Creon is a power-hungry leader. He is developing into a tyrant. Creon is compared to “a politician without the capacity to be a statesman, because he cannot resist the temptations of power” (Winnington-Ingram).
Even though he has been selected as chief of the island, his voice was gradually becoming useless. The followers fancied an achiever like Jack, not just a speaker. Ralph's most important objective was to go gome, but the boys were too caught up killing pigs to realize that the fire had been left uncared for. Infuriated that the chances of being rescued vanished, the leader demands an explanation for the lack of responsibility. But at that instant, Ralph realizes his leadership lacks contron as he "...watched them envious and resentful" (Golding, 79).
Whenever arguing with a higher status male your inferiority complex would cause you to panic. You would feel uncomfortable in the rarely entered territory of the alpha male, in which one stands up for himself and refuses to be made to feel inferior by anyone. As a result your voice would raise, your speech would quicken and you would begin to make quick and erratic movements. Even as you were defending yourself in an heroic fashion your omega male traits would show themselves. Have you ever heard of an omega male?
As Atticus says “there’s something in our world that makes men lose their heads they couldn’t be fair if they tried. In our courts when it’s a white mans word against a black mans word, the white always wins. They’re ugly. But these are the facts of life” (pg.# 252). From this speech to his
Macbeth becomes cold, and withdraws any tender feelings. When Macbeth chooses to hire assassins to deal with Banquo, he does so without the slightest regret, although he knows that Banquo is a good person who deserves not to be killed. "It is concluded. Banquo, thy soul's flight, if it find heaven, must find it out tonight." (3.1.162-163) Macbeth recognizes that Banquo will surely go to heaven, yet feels no sympathy for his old friend.
