Without love there is no loyalty, and without loyalty, there is no bravery. In the book and movie of the story Rikki- Tikki- Tavi, they were neck and neck. Snake against mongoose, though one must surely die, neither will back down just yet. The book, Written By Rudyard Kipling, and the movie, produced by Julie Ross, generally both carry the same plot and main idea: After being washed out of his home, and cared for by a loving family of three, he wants to repay them, and in the process does an unforgettable act of service. Though both the mediums were exciting, there were also numerous similarities and differences between the book, and the movie, such as the banana scene, the scene where the family first found him, and the resolution.
At times of boredom I usually decide in watching the kings of all clowns, yes I go to youtube and watch another George Bush speech. This time the speech I watched was perhaps his funniest of all time. It was ridiculous, people were even questioning weather his mom dropped him when he was born and some people are even losing faith in god refusing to believe that our creator could of made that big of a mistake. George Bush said, “America is a Nation with a mission-and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire.
It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, 'Our Father who art in Heaven.' (Douglas Macarthur) Even though the main father and son relationship in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons does not display the “perfect” relationship they still hold respect and love for one another, they are each other’s security. In this play the author displays a society in which the characters are selfish, and seem to care only about themselves and the things that may benefit them. The men in this play go through great lengths to get everything they want, even if their actions may bring harm to others. Mr. Joe Keller seems to be an exception in this play; He will go through a lot of trouble to benefit others, especially his family.
He is totally focused on his work. The work on the coffin is a metaphor for Cash's diligence throughout the novel. It becomes a template for many of Cash's actions throughout the story. Cash is the one member of the family who has something to do and does it well. In his words, "It is better to build a tight chicken coop, than a shoddy courthouse," (234).
The way they were both raised affects their views of the world drastically. Louisa is Gradgrind's daughter and both her and her brother have both been used by their father as test subjects. The ideology they are raised on is total utilitarianism; there is nothing important besides facts and statistics. There is no room for emotions or imagination because they are useless and pollute the mind. “It was a fundamental principle of the Gradgrind philosophy that everything was to be paid for.
At first the concern that the family shows seems genuine, especially for the sister Grete who shows the greatest sympathy for Gregor and takes it upon herself to be his caretaker. His mother and father seem utterly in despair by Gregors transformation and feel that it is a great encumbrance on them since he is the sole breadwinner. Gregor was made to believe that his family is incapable of working and that they were counting on him for support. Gregor in his new cockroach body is unable to communicate with his family, however he is able to hear and understand them. As it turns out his family has been deceiving him; his father has saved up some money unbeknownst to Gregor and his father soon acquires a job as a security guard.

Their obstinacy and authority conflict directly, which leads to a weak and unstable future. Both feel they can overpower the other, but in the end, they ruin their lives in doing so. Instead, they must work together and uniformly stabilize their authority; precisely Euripides’ advice in Medea. All in all, Euripides clarifies that families and relationships should be a single figurine of power, as opposed to many opposing forces.
The short stories “Alchemy” and “House”, from Madeleine Thien’s “Simple Recipes”, portray fathers that are drastically different from each other. In each of these stories a father is present, but the way each is shown interacting with their families differs extraordinarily. This interaction with their family leads to very different outcomes for the families and how the children view their father in their lives. Although both fathers are shown to be hard working and described by the narrators as caring they are very different from each other in their motives, lives at home, and the way they are perceived by their children. One is seen as a loving father who is missed by his daughters and the other is scrutinized and hated by his.
All the odds are against Oliver yet this neglect saves him life!

Oliver is also abused mentally, at evening when the boys went to pray, Oliver was “kicked into the same apartment every evening” and there he listend to the other boys “ask god to guard them from the sins and vices of Oliver Twist”.
One of the greatest impacts on an individual's life is his parents. The values of one’s parents are the first ideas that a person embraces regardless of their moral soundness. One form of self preservation is to live one’s life lying to himself and others in order to feel better about one’s self. There is great difficulty in rejecting a lifestyle a person has grown up in, in favor of a more morally correct way of living. Ultimately, there is great freedom, and great pain, in finally breaking free of one’s past.
