What Proctor means by this that no man would blacken his own name without having a reason for doing so. He would not say that he has committed a sin if it was not unfortunately true. Proctor obviously knows that his wife is innocent and that he is the one that has sinned. He is sacrificing his name and life for the innocence of his wife. He wants to save his wife, but he also does not want his named
George does not care about Lennie’s situation and he trust in him as Lennie trust in George. In chapter four, the George says, “A guy needs somebody-to be near him” shows that people need other people to be strong and take better decisions. No matter who is that person and how smart is he or she. George does not care about who Lennie is and he considered Lennie his friend, showing that intelligence is not everything. All Lennie actions show his innocence.
Knowing that he could have been less obstinate and changed his assessment of power would have prevented Creon's son and wife from dying the way they did. Although Antigone was also persistent in not changing her own viewpoints, this worked in her favor because she was stubborn for a better reason than Creon. She stood up for her family because she knew it was the right thing to do. Creon did not show that he cared about anything but his own appearance for the fear that he will be observed as weak, until it was too late. By comparing and contrasting the characters of Creon and Antigone, one can assume that a lesson to be learnt from reading this play is that one should do what they believe is right based on their values and not concentrate on the thoughts of those who aren't important to him or
The reason for him giving the wrong information is so that he can walk away without any consequences. Mariana would be the antagonist in this story because she believed that the information that Jake gave her is true. She gave Jake all of information which was correct. She is not angry that he hit her car. “A Good Man is Hard to Find” the grandmother in the story would be the protagonist.
The two generate an interesting debate; however they might lose their credibility because Robert brought the fact that Jacqueline was married which is not job related and could be discriminatory to unmarried applicant while Paul he continually refer about Sonya’s enthusiasm and could be the selling point but this is not also offer any substantial reasons for her preference. One thing that I observed for the two is that Robert and Paul have a very good relationship – when they do have disagreements they are understanding and accepting of their differences and compromise when necessary. Robert doesn’t think too highly of the swinging bachelor persona, but it hasn’t affected job performance – anyway, it’s diversity that makes life
He knows that he should not turn in Jim because Jim has done nothing but help Huck in his adventure and has done nothing wrong to Huck. Huck’s development is shown here because he knows that what society views slaves as is wrong. They are best friends, which is why Huck cannot bring himself to turn Jim in. Even though Huck brings himself to pray to for the ability to turn Jim in, he could not because he cares about Jim. They took care of each other on the raft and have grown a close relationship, because of this Huck cannot bring
While Socrates arguments may be sound in his opinion, I'm not sure if I agree with them. Just because of the good laws of the state benefited Socrates and helped him in his upbringing, it doesn't mean that he has to remain completely loyal to them for his entire life. His main point about never returning an unjust act with another makes sense to a degree, but only if you agree with his view that the soul is the only thing that matters and not the body. While I understand that point, I don' think every unjust act ruins the soul. Some acts such as telling a white lie in some situations are
He likes to believe he is right and enjoys the feeling of being superior in his theories and thoughts against those of other people. We see it a lot with his lies and deceits. He doesn’t ever give up on his lies even when people are skeptical because he wants to believe he is right and they are wrong. For example when he was at the Grangerfold household, he was almost caught forgetting his own name, but with his sharp wit he turns it around and asks for it to be spelled for him. He didn’t want to be noticed for lying and told he was wrong.
This though is invalid and not true because sin comes out of happiness and Dimmesdale does this for the joy of his heart. He does not intend to hurt anyone he only seeks to be happy but he simply isn’t “man enough” to step up. Chillingworth has the greatest sin because he seeks his revenge which has blinded him. He intends on harming others and putting Dimmesdale in a miserable slow death. Sin is a crime caused by wanting joy but Chillingworth is not like that.
She probably "trembles with delight" because his apparent agreement that Jesus would help him gives her hope that she can win out in the end and get away without getting murdered. The Misfit doesn't pray, because he doesn't want any help. What's intriguing about this claim is that his decision not to pray goes against many of the other things he says. At moments, The Misfit seems to be satisfied with his life of meanness. At others, however, he seems to want something else, or is genuinely dissatisfied with his life and with the way he is.
