The Outlier: Isaac Newton Isaac Newton is an outlier; he was unusually successful, but not in the way the average person thinks. Most people think that success is measured by wealth, but Isaac Newton wasn’t rich. He is an outlier because of everything he did for our understanding of science, math, and the world. He unlocked the mystery of the rainbow that no one has been able to solve for years! He developed the concept of gravity, and thanks to that, people know why they stay on the ground, why they aren’t just floating off into space, and why objects fall.
This was not because his vast knowledge, actually quite the opposite as he failed his college entrance exams. It was his imagination that made the man who society looks at so admirably. Even as a child, Einstein was able to formulate questions that people even today cannot answer. However, it was not just his imagination; it was his quest of self-discovery that made his efforts so fruitful. He became genuinely interested in his work leading to the profound discoveries we attribute to the name of Albert Einstein.
I get really concerned about how people perceive me and interpret my actions. However, I’m not really concerned about vanity being my great flaw or becoming the next Narcissus, because everyone is a little vain. Unfortunately, some people take their pride a little overboard. For instance, John Proctor was so vain that he would rather die than tarnish his name; the judges that condemned him had an inkling of knowledge that they were killing innocent people, but by the time they realized it, they couldn’t save people without ruining their reputation. Arthur Dimmesdale let the mother of his child suffer years of judgment because he didn’t want to face the shame of revealing his sin.
A large number of people think they killed them because they wanted their parents life insurance money and others think it is because of the abuse they endured throughout their childhood. In my opinion, I think the brothers killed their parents for money. They may had hated their farther and thought that killing them it would make their lives better because they would get money for his death. The one thing that I do not understand is why they would kill their mother. Many articles that I have read describe her as a drug addict and bipolar, but many of those articles said that the boys loved their mother.
In this quote, Rose is trying to convince Ginny that they cannot show mercy to their father because of the way he treated them when they were teenagers. Rose reminded Ginny of how Larry took advantage of them sexually and the other wrong doings. Additionally, what Rose also mentions is that the sexual acts were a direct effect of the fact that the mother died. With Larry being lonely and no one to satisfy his needs, he took advantage of Ginny. When Rose said this to Ginny, Ginny could not remember properly if it really happened because it was a painful part of her life so she had bottled the memories away.
Her crave for attention was the fuel for her desire to make Julie sick. A parent is also more likely to mistreat their children if their spouse has very little, or no, input in the family’s activities which leaves it to the abusive parent to control everything. In another situation where family relationships could be an issue, a woman named “Shannon Hudson had been trying to break up with the boys’ [her sons’ abusive] father when he shot her three times. Then shot himself” (Burling A1+). The abuses that lead up to the husband getting angry and frustrated with his wife caused the violent act that was a result of their relationship failure.
With his mom abusing him as a child, he became irritated with the torment and thought that it was alright to abuse someone as punishment. The cycle continued. Then looking at his past wives’ and their divorces, Ridgway obviously did not get along with women very well. Then after he contracted gonorrhea from a prostitute, Ridgway finally snapped and began his Green River killings. According to Criminal Justice, almost every murder has a motive (Crime Museum), and these highlights from Ridgway’s past is what most likely caused him to go on his killing spree.
He claimed he saw his biological mother died at the age of four in such a violent way, which could be a reason why Dexter has trouble connecting with anyone sexually or emotionally. Also, he discussed that the moral code his father taught him was meant for him to survive within a normal society. As a result, Mrs. White decided to use some strategies and techniques to help Dexter overcome his low sexual desire. She will inquire about Dexter’s level of commitment with Rita and treatment. The feeling of pessimisms and not being able to believe he is capable of loving will need to be addressed.
Her uncle had taken her away to give her an education, only to abuse her, not letting her see how he would be shunned in a different society. Gradually, Firdaus' experiences with men became similar. The failed attempts to find love, and feel pleasure merged into a mass of hurt, and feelings of pain for all... ... middle of paper ... ...ing to either man, her society would label her the criminal. She would defend herself by saying that the man's actions were justification for her actions. Among the other criminals that Firdaus encounters throughout her life, include her husband, Mahmoud.
I blamed my father’s mistakes on the world and believed that the world’s influence made my father do drugs, prefer all of the other women to my mom, and spend more time in jail than he did in his own home. Being neglected by my father, seeing how his bad decisions not only hurt him but also his loved ones around him, and witnessing my mother struggle to raise my brother and me caused me to mature at an early age, and shaped my belief that I could not depend on anyone but myself in order to live a happy life. I was a game to my father; he wanted to see how long it would take for me to forgive him and allow him back into my world. He won on every occasion; he could vanish for years, but once I saw him I opened my loving heart and let him in. I could not wait for our family to be normal again.
