July 19: Gantos asked Hamilton what might happen to them if they got caught. “My fear amused him…Hamilton had read my mind―I’m not doing anything wrong. I’m just afraid of punishment” (84-85). | The author utilizes irony to show how Jack is able to ignore the fact that what he is doing will end badly.

In "Some of Us Had Been Threatening Our Friend Colby," Donald Barthelme tries to show how inhumane man can be by telling an absurd story of a man named Colby who, "had gone too far." (Barthelme, 1973, pg. 19) In the story, Colby's so-called friends decided that they must hang Colby because of his going too far. Barthelme uses this story to illustrate how people can sometimes let their emotions get in the way of their good judgment. Colby's friends had been warning him for some time that they did not like the way Colby had been behaving.
“Les Miserables” Analysis Someone once said, “There is a way of falling into error while on the way to truth.” In other words, doing something wrong can allow people to see what is right. In “Les Miserables”, Inspector Javert’s only motive is to arrest Jean Valjean for being a convict. Jean soon became a new man as he had promised. There is also a group of republicans who fought for what they believed in, but failed. These scenes in the movie best exemplify the quotation to be true since the characters seek truth but faced conflict.
He does have his own selfish reasoning for revolting even though his main goal is to undermine the Party and Big Brother. Openly rebelling wasn't his method either; he would do his rebelling in secret which isn't really brave. In the end of the novel he turns on Julie and is no longer against Big Brother but now supporting him “And perhaps you might pretend, afterwards, that it was only a trick and that you just said it to make them stop and didn’t really mean
He went ahead with risks after requesting permission, and apologized when things went wrong. When his committee meetings went non-productive due to unhealthy disputes between committee members, Paul met with each party separately and found a solution to resolve the issue. Levy exhibited effective leadership skills when dealing with conflict. First, Levy was willing to lose in order to win. A successful leader should take courage in taking risks and handling mistakes to foster innovation (Charles W. Prather, 2008).
He could have mocked Hooper the same way Hooper used to call him ‘scaredy-baby’, hence taking revenge. Nevertheless, because he didn’t have the confidence to take Hooper’s power and turn the table, he gave away this opportunity, and let Hooper keep the upper hand. Similarly, I found Kingshaw relinquishing every chance afterwards that could perhaps help him out of Hooper’s torment, such as not pulling Hooper over when he could have let him fall off the stairs, and saving Hooper at the pool when he could have left him to drown. In my opinion, Kingshaw had the ability to defeat Hooper, but he
Odysseus also a firm believer in hospitality; Which explains why he was in such distress after learning of the suitors attempt to take everything he’s ever worked for. Guile is a clever form of deceit. Odysseus was full of it; the perfect example was when he introduced himself to Polyphemus. “My name is Nobody; Mother, father, friends/everyone calls me Nobody.” (IX) Odysseus knew that they would they would try to kill Polyphemus, so He gave him this alias because he was aware that Polyphemus would call for help to the other Cyclopes, and when he did he would sound like an idiot. He also used his guile on Calypso.
The first person to come is the drunk man who makes the story more tragic because he says 'I gotta a good mind to call a cop' which gets Andy’s hopes up that he is going to be found but then the drunk man says 'You don' wanna cop to fin' you all drunk an' wet in an alley, huh; Okay, buddy. This time you get off easy' which means no one will help Andy for now. The next people to come to the alley was a couple called Freddie and Angela who see Andy is in trouble but they don't want to get involved because Andy is a Royal and they say The Guardians will find out that they helped a Royal "If we get a cop, The Guardians'll find out who" says Freddie, so Freddie and Angela leave but Freddie mumbles "I'm Sorry" then leaves. I think this is the most surprising bit in the story because Andy is lying there dying and Freddie and Angela don't help, and could've saved his life, instead of him dying. The forth and last person to go to the alley is an old lady who, can't hear Andy because she was a little deaf and because of the rain hitting off the bins.
Tom made a good choice when Mayella was trying to trap by backing away and trying not to harm her. When Atticus announces the news of Tom’s death, he says he got killed because he was trying to escape prison. “I told him what I thought, but I couldn’t in truth say that we had more than a good chance. I guess Tom was tired of white men’s chances and preferred to take his own. Ready, Cal?” (Lee 238).
