He accidently killed Stilson in the beginning of the book without knowing until chapter 15, because he kicked him so many times. He did not mean to, he just wanted to win and make them stop harassing him. Ender always feels like a killer after he kills someone, even when it’s not on purpose. For Ender, he doesn’t want to be a killer because he doesn’t like killing people and he thinks that it will make him like Peter. Ender does not want to kill anyone because if he does, then it’ll make him like Peter.
This made everyone in town think that she simply didn’t feel any remorse for her son’s death. When she actually did feel sorrow, loss, and remorse, she just didn’t want to show it. The question here is: Why doesn’t Hagar want anyone to know how she really feels? The answer is that this is her way of protecting herself. She made an emotional wall in fear of getting hurt.
B.F. Skinner: His Life and Legacy Larry L. Hering Liberty University Abstract B.F. Skinner was one of the most influential psychological theorists of the twentieth century. Known as one of the main behaviorists, he used his creativeness to invent some important devices, write books, and develop a comfortable crib with its own environment. He was a prominent personality theorist as well as a husband and father. One of the most impressive things about Skinner was his multi-dimensional use for his theories. He was always looking out for an opportunity to use his discoveries and beliefs in different ways.
He eventually finds his own morals and tells himself what is right and what is wrong. Part of this realization came from him helping Jim, which troubled his mind because of what society said about helping him. But he then based his decision to help on his own experiences and logic. That is kind of what Fahrenheit 451 puts forth. But instead of trying to gain knowledge it is being destroyed, all because society is trying to promote ignorance which causes sameness in all.
His physical change as far as he can see will not change his enjoyment of life, there will be no difference as he was a bug before, towing the line for the boss. He was always too busy to form lasting relationships, never being seen as a person, the personification of a deadening soul. According to Karl Marx “work is external to the worker i.e. it does not form part of his essential being so that instead of feeling well in his work, he feels unhappy, instead of developing his free physical and mental energy, he abuses his body and ruins his mind.”(Bloom. Page 107) Gregor basically is beginning self-alienation, he believes he is something hideous physically but mentally still holds onto his human conformist mindset.
"He ashamed, and wants to tell her so, but it's not for him to apologize. He hasn't earned the right" (Page 176) - I found this quote to be significant because I felt that it showed Dragan's character and how the guilt had built up within him. It showed us how Dragan felt remorse for what happened to Emina but he also felt that he wasn't worthy enough to own up to it. He felt that since he never helped her, well she was shot. So he feels he's unworthy of showing her, his remorse because he never tried to help her in the first place.
When he returned it seemed that he felt nothing; especially love. He told his mother that he couldn’t love at all, and God was apparently included in that statement. He probably could not pray to God after all he experienced, because he could not deal with the thought that the same God that let so many people die could love him. He couldn’t bring about the emotion or love for God, and hence wanted his mother to pray for him
A man who loved his mother would have cried a little bit at her funeral. Unlike Meursault’s behavior of being calm and distant at his mother’s funeral. It was unheard of to not have an open casket, but he did not even want to she his own mother one last time. He was not connected with his mother. He seemed to have never been close with her.
In the rant called “The Smart Gap,” Eric Maisel explains his personal opinion on brain power of individuals. Grit, however, isn’t something that he believes will help people find success. Although some may not agree with what was stated, Maisel brings up many persuaded key points to help get his point across. Throughout Eric Maisel’s rant, many key points are brought up. First, he explains that we will experience emotional pain when we recognize that the work we would love to do might just be unavailable enough to make us doubt that we can proceed.
