1.)“I never saw a more interesting creature: his eyes have generally an expression of wildness, and even madness… his whole countenance is lighted up… with a beam of benevolence and sweetness that I never saw equalled” (Shelley 11)
Victor is in recovery and he is somewhat a sweet guy to him which intrigues Walton.
2.)“Even broken in spirit as he is, no one can feel more deeply than he does the beauties of nature… Such a man has a double existence: he may suffer misery and be overwhelmed by disappointments, yet when he has retired into himself, he will be like a celestial spirit that has a halo around him, within whose circle no grief or folly ventures” (Shelley 14)
Victor is a man who can find peace with the beauty of the world around him from nature to the knowledge that has to be learned through the experience that he has or needs. His sufferings have allowed him to become strong even though he may be weak temporarily from outside all the situations and conflicts that he has.
3.)“I feel exquisite pleasure in dwelling on the recollections of childhood, before misfortune had tainted my mind and changed its bright visions of extensive usefulness into gloomy and narrow reflections upon self” (Shelley 24)
Walton has the vision for his life and his introspection causes his negative thoughts to become inevitable misfortunes of life.
4.)“‘The ancient teachers of this science,’ said he, ‘promised impossibilities and performed nothing. The modern masters promise very little; they know that metals cannot be transmuted and that the elixir of life is a chimera. But these philosophers, whose hands seem only made to dabble in dirt, and their eyes to pore over the microscope or crucible, have indeed performed miracles” (Shelley 33)

19.)“Thus spoke my prophetic soul, as, torn by remorse, horror, and despair, I beheld those I loved spend vain and sorrow upon the graves of William and Justine, the first hapless victims to my unhallowed arts.”(Shelley)
20.)”Believe me Frankenstein,I was benevolent;My soul glowed with love and humanity.” (Shelley)

Justine and William symbolize innocence. They are both blameless and represent the domino effect of innocent lives that will fall due to one man’s mistake.
This quote represents the idea of people being born into innocent humans, not evil.

- My impression of beauty comes from a lot of different experiences and could be divided up in various ways. First of all, I think that true beauty is different for everyone. Let 's take physical beauty, for example. Each culture defines ideal physical appearance in different ways. The way I see it, everybody is born different from each other. I mean, sure, we all strive to look like the slim/muscular models we see in the media, but if everyone achieved that goal, then we 'd all look the same. This thought kind of goes hand-in-hand with trying to achieve "normalcy".... [tags: Beauty, Human physical appearance, Emotion]

- In a hotel suite, Dominic Cobb’s wife jumps off a ledge and dies in hopes of returning to what she thinks is the real world. Cobb must then decide whether he should forget the past and move on to find his own enjoyment or stay within an unconstructed dream space, where he is able to live with his wife. In Uncle Vanya, Anton Chekhov tells the story of a family of unhappy souls who have trouble finding pleasure in the world. As a result, Andre Gregory and Louis Malle use the opening sequence of Vanya on 42nd Street to foreshadow Chekhov’s argument that humans must take action find happiness, but only after they make peace with the past....

- The world is changing. The environment is yelling at us, but is society ready to listen. Climate scientists, outdoor enthusiasts, environmentalists, and politicians all have an opinion on the state of the world’s climate. There is an argument from each side, agreeing or disagreeing with the claims of scientists who are trying to show the world what is happening. The fact is that humans are changing the climate, and it is not for the better. Glaciers are melting, the polar caps are shrinking and the ocean is becoming acidic....

- ... I will be able to move around and explore whenever I feel the need. I will not feel like I have to cover my skin to protect myself from Mother Nature’s harsh weather conditions. Also in this climate my skin will thrive. Feeling the warmth of the sun on my shoulders and the nourishing moisture of the humidity on my cheeks would just jump-start my mood every morning. It doesn’t really matter to me what time of year it is as long as the climate is on point. To me when on holiday, your vacation doesn’t really start until you forget what day it is, so the date of my trip is insignificant.... [tags: ocean, climate, travel]

- Peace is so hard to find. Too often it is out of reach. No just my own, but of itself. If one person’s peace does not give another peace how then can that peace exist. Catherine was never at peace here at the Grange. Happy, perhaps somewhat, but definitely not peaceful. Her heart longed for the fire and the passion that was so far out of reach. A fire that lied elsewhere; in a place where home is not a where, but a who. She longed for Heathcliff in a way she never longed for me. So it burned me with a rage I had never experienced before, to see him so close to her in her final, most intimate moments.... [tags: Debut albums, English-language films]

- Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder The Industrial Era was a time of significant change. While many argue the exact dates this Era began around 1760 and ended sometime between 1820 and 1840. This revolution began in England and soon spread to Western Europe and the United States. As Robert E. Lucas Jr., a Noble Peace Prize winner, stated: "For the first time in history, the living standards of the masses of ordinary people have begun to undergo sustained growth ... Nothing remotely like this economic behavior is mentioned by the classical economists, even as a theoretical possibility.” Not only where these changes evident in the growing of cities and factories from the previous rural living a...

- It’s all About the Money and Control Beauty and the Business Man With today’s blockbusters being as diverse as our global economy, a growing genre of movies is springing out of the darkness and into mainstream culture. The ever-popular chick flick is becoming a phenomenon for more than just “chicks.” With a predictable template and fantasy story lines one can explain in a matter of a few words, as well as a heroine who finds inner peace and becomes one with the world around her, it is no wonder how chick flicks have transcended audience boundaries....

- Surrounded by a forbidding moat and impressively massive stone walls, the fortress known as the Castle of Nagoya lies within. To this day, the castle is one of the most impressive in all Japan. I can feel the impressiveness as I look up over 300 feet, and am unable to see the other side of the castle limits. It is no secret that the castle caused fear throughout the nation. Even today it attracts visitors from all over the world for its beauty and intellection of bringing history together. As I walked the outside fence, I look down at the hundred foot long moat, and the stone wall that rise another hundred feet overlooking the moat, that made foreign invasion almost impossible....

- Welcome, You’ve Got a Brave New World The task of predicting the future is difficult at best, yet Huxley’s predictions of the future have proven to be eerily accurate in several areas. Many of Huxley’s predictions are being realized today, have already been realized or will be realized in a few short years. These specific predictions, which are closely related to today are our sexual practices, an obsession with youth and beauty, the minimal role of parents and the practice of religion. In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World people treat sex as a form of entertainment rather than an expression of love between a couple. Most forms of entertainment in Brave... [tags: Brave New World]
