One other Strength of utilitarianism is its consequentialism, as when we act it is only natural to weigh up the consequences and this consequentialism gives us guidance when facing moral decisions and also gives general guidance on how to live. Also one other strength of utilitarianism is its acceptance of the universal principle, this is essential for any ethical system and this shows It is important to go beyond our own personal point of view. A further strength is that utilitarianism has the idea of promoting the ‘well-being’ of the greatest number. This is an important idea in the theory of utilitarianism.

Herrick effectively highlights Billy’s father’s contempt through sensory imagery; his “one hard back hander” causes Billy to “taste the blood dribbling out” of his nose. The exclusion that Billy feels in his family prompts him to search for a better place to belong. He develops distaste for his own hometown of Nowheresville. “I throw one rock on the roof/ of each deadbeat, no hoper/ shithole lonely downtrodden house/ in Longlands Road, Nowheresville” here, an accumulation of negative diction, which reinforces the feelings of alienation that such a place arouses for Billy. The use of harsh alliterative sounds also reveals Billy’s negative tone.

Darne Duckett English 10/3 Fitzgerald 2014 September 25 ORB project Voice Quote 1: Hate is a hard feeling to overcome, and hate can take us to a point where we are not even ourselves anymore. “I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him”. Booker T. Washington was truly expressing voice and how he feels through this quote. His voice speaks to me saying that any person, cannot complete any actions to make him hate them. If he lets himself get out of control so much that he hates someone, then his inner self and soul breaks down or degrades.
Tell them I confessed myself; say Proctor broke to his knees and wept like a woman; say what you will, but my name cannot-“ Danforth, with suspicion: “It is the same, is it not?

In both stories the people of the towns are alright with sacrificing one so that everyone else can be happy.

Wilde explores the subject of morality frequently within the play and the conflicting ideas surrounding the topic. Wilde particularly explores the idea of women ‘falling from grace’. This can be seen in the character of Mrs Arbuthnot. The character is quite obviously a good, strong woman who has taken her misfortunes in stride and not let them bring her down too much, as well as raising her son to also be a good person. Many people would argue that the blame for her misfortune should solely lay on Lord Illingworth, who, it is obvious to the audience, used her for his own pleasure and satisfaction, abusing her love and trust.
When these phrases are heard for the first time, the immediate responds is to ignore; mainly because it sounds prattle. Needless to say, for those individuals who decide that the warning isn’t for them, they always become involved in situations that make them wish that were smart enough to listen to them. In the book, “An Evening in Guanima,” there are many stories where the characters refuse to listen and made grave mistakes or learnt valuable lessons.

His first downfall was not being able to have a child.
