He jumped up, threw down his rifle then sped to the rear in great leaps.” (pg.66) Interpretation: By lacking the true knowledge of war, Henry shows how immature he really is by running from the battlefield. II. Claim: Henry’s last name could mean coward and hero. Evidence: In Sadler’s article he states that "Fleming," when used as a verbal substantive, means "one who puts to flight. "(pg.373) Evidence: Sadler also writes, “In each successive appearance of his surname Henry progresses from a fear of exposure and humiliation to a final acceptance of the consequences of his fall until, in a moment of congratulatory praise, he emerges as a hero.
He is telling parents when their children are alone they don’t always follow the rules. For example if you’re telling a child not to jump on a bed, as soon as the parents are out of sight they are going to jump on the bed again. What the parents think is going to happen is that they will only have to tell their child once and it will not happen again. The reality is if a child thinks something is fun then they are going to find a way to do it when the parents are not looking. Parents are not prefect and everything they say may not be the right thing to do, but pleasing them is the best policy so kids should do it anyway.
This means that the snipers motives were pretty much to kill his enemy, and defend himself at the same time. In this story, it states that his eyes had the cold gleam of a fanatic.

Albert Einstein was asked what weapons World War III would be fought with, to which he replied “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones”. War is a monster that feeds on the patriotism and ideals of young men and leaves horror and suffering in its wake. While reading the book All Quiet on the Western Front, I developed a deeper understanding of what war is like, and why it should be avoided at all costs. As a teenager growing up in America, I was surrounded by the concept of war. Most of these depictions show war being glorious, noble, and even fun at times.
Additionally, Gene makes an effort to do what is morally right in several cases in order to rival Phineas’s natural goodness. For instance, Gene attempts to tell Phineas that is was he who caused Phineas to fall out of the tree when he visits Phineas at his home. He thinks about what Phineas would do in a case where he has harmed a friend, and decides that the morally correct thing to do would be to confess. Another example of Gene’s attempts at doing what is right occurs after Phineas falls down the stairs and Gene goes to visit him in the infirmary. Here, Gene feels obligated to be there for his best friend because this is what he feels Phineas would do for him.
A Pure Minds Work The mind is a temple, it is pure, but only until it absorbs the influences of other minds. Sharing ones temple will not make them impure, but once they do, they will no longer keep in them the self.

There is a point when they come to the realization that their mother and father watching over them will not always be there but someone else will always be. Even though Tom is just a child, he does not have the mother or father figure to give him direction. However, he receives direction and guidance from spiritual constructs. These spiritual figures are the fairies, Mrs. Doasyouwouldbedoneby and Mrs. Bedonebyasyoudid, Mother Carey, and the unnamed reinforcing figure of karma. This idea of punishment is strengthened by demonstrating that sin will never be left unchecked and individuals will inevitably get what they deserve.

Soldiers were brainwashed with the idea of patriotism - leading their country to victory at all costs, even if meant going into battle knowing you were going to die enforcing the message of the movie that, “The paths of glory lead but to the grave.” At first, the movie described the trench warfare situation of World War I. Then we are introduced to General Mireau who had been ordered to send his division in on a suicide mission to the well-defended German position called the “Ant Hill.” At first Mireau refuses, trying to explain the impossibility of success but as soon as a promotion for him is mentioned, he’s suddenly convinced the attack will be successful. Mireau leaves the attack to Colonel Dax, despite Dax’s protests that the attack will only result in failure and weaken his army. During a nighttime scouting mission prior to the attack, a drunken lieutenant named Roget sends one of his two men ahead as a scout.
