A4. There are a few characteristics that Antonia exhibits that lead to Cather's admiration of her. One of them is Antonia's ability to be a hard worker. For example, after Antonia's father died, she helped her mother and brother work in the fields. One quote that proves this is "If I rode over to see her where she was ploughing, she stopped at the end of the row to chat for a moment, then gripped her plough handles, clicked to her team, and waded on down the furrow, making me feel like she was now grown up and had no time for me". This quote shows that Antonia was growing up and becoming a hard worker in the aftermath of her father's death because she only talked to Jim for a moment before going back to work. Another characteristic that Antonia exhibits that led to Cather's admiration of her is her
In the book Michael Vey Rise Of The Elgen, the main character Michael Vey has some sort of electrical powers that gives him the ability to be a human magnet, throw balls of lightning and he can shock people way more than you can shock someone by rubbing your feet against a carpet floor.

Louie Zamperini had a very tragic and interesting life. He was a runner for the Olympics. He won many wristwatches from his competitions. After reading about Louie Zamperini in Unbroken, I believe that the author, Lauren Hillenbrand, lucidly defined Louie as resourceful and determined.
The purpose of this quote is to foreshadow what the crime does to the community and how the death of four lives not only ruins the lives of the murderers but also the townspeople. Holcomb was described in the previous paragraphs as a peaceful place where nothing bad could have ever happened. However, the author uses phases such as “lock their doors” to portray how Holcomb and the people that live there had their lives change drastically. Capote also uses the phrase “and as strangers” to show how a very close community transforms into a town where no one feels safe and secure. The effectiveness of this quote comes from how Capote describes the townspeople and what affect it has on their everyday lifestyles.
Ender has been through many ups and downs and in this story; Ender descends into darkness mostly figuratively. For example, when Ender defeated the Formics without even knowing, he had a meltdown. “Ender grabbed Mazer’s uniform and hung onto it, pulling him down so they were face to face. ‘I didn’t want to kill them all. I didn’t want to kill anybody! I’m not a killer! You didn’t want me, you bastards, you wanted Peter, but you made me do it, you tricked me into it!’ He was crying. He was out of control” (298). This exemplifies how much this situation had constrained Ender, making it the hardest and most downfall moment of his life. In the quote it also mentioned Peter, the person he despises the most. Ender does not like the fact that the I.F.
Ever since I can remember I have loved theatre. It’s been a constant presence, and an important touchstone, in my life. However, for as long as I’ve loved theatre, I have also been ridiculed for my enjoyment of it. As a child, my interest was tolerated as something precious, something I was bound to grow out of. My parents and teachers would sit in the audience, clapping and cheering me on, all the while thinking to themselves “I bet she’ll make a great lawyer one day.” They thought, like most of society, theatre was an unnecessary luxury; a pastime for the rich and powerful, for those who didn’t have to worry about putting food on the table, or clothes on their children’s backs. Certainly not
The final stage of Heller’s novel marks Yossarian’s, and therefore Heller’s, conclusion that life will drag him along in the metaphorical rapids unless he makes a stand and refuses to bow to other’s wills, living his limited and finite life for his own and disregarding the system. This can first be seen when Yossarian refers to his reported saving of Cathcart as “The only sin I don’t want on my record” (Heller 434). Here, Yossarian begins voicing his own opinions and disregarding authority figures. This makes him seem like he’s starting to disregard the random and unfeeling nature that seems to characterize his life. This rebellious statement is significant in that it is an extremely harsh but true sentiment. This formation of personal opinion
“Knowing great wealth, rather becoming pious and learned Jews”. That is the way, the Rabbi of Abraham Hersh Ashkenazi, predicts the life of his two children will be. To the dread of Abraham Hersh, that prophecy becomes true for both sons, but mostly for Simha Meir. Throughout the book, the reader is able to discern how Simha Meir goes through an evolution that allows him to escape the constraints of his Jewishness, becoming Max Ashkenazi, the king of Lodz. I.J.
Mufasa told Simba that one day he would be king of everything the light touches. There is one place that is beyond of Mufasa’s reign known as the elephant graveyard. Mufasa told Simba “ the shadowy place is beyond our borders, you must never go there Simba.” One day Simba thought of a marvelous idea to go for an adventure in the elephant graveyard, but quickly after arriving, he noticed it was no place of a lion cub. After being chased for miles by hyenas they came to a dead-end. Mufasa got word from Zazu that he had to go save Nala and Simba from the hyenas. Simba disobeyed his father’s rules about never going there “I’m only brave when I have to be. Being brave doesn’t mean you go out looking for trouble. (Mufasa)” Simba stepped into his
Her power sounded absolutely horrific, all Xia could do was imagine her fingers melting off before even being able to touch the woman. It was pretty cool but certainly not a power she was jealous of. [b]" That sounds horrible. How do you ever manage to make contact with anyone... or anything for that matter? How are your clothes not burning off?"[/b], she asked more out of curiosity than anything. The woman gave her permission to touch but alas Xia was still weary, looking her over one last time before reaching a hand out and giving the woman a quick pat on the arm. She could easily feel the heat through her clothing and for once another fire was actually uncomfortable, though Xia had been bred in the mountains of Asia and more accustom to cold than your average hound [b]" I couldn't deal with that at all."[/b] A simple statement as she drew her hand back shaking it a little in the cold air. While the shorter woman didn't have the strongest power when on her own if she combined it with her brothers the two were capable of mass destruction...this woman on the other hand could probably set god only knew what aflame with a simple touch.

Anzaldua, Author The main character of Chinua Achebe’s novel, ‘Things Fall Apart’ , Okonkwo serves as a great wrestler, respected leader, and a fierce warrior until the Europeans came in contact with the Ibo people.

This is the confused emoji. The quotes this emoji relates to are "... when I glanced down at my iPod, I saw a song I didn't recognize. Sixteen Moons. What was that?" and "It wasn't there. The song was gone, but I had just listened to it this morning. And I knew I hadn't imagined it because it was still stuck in my head."
