Purity And Filth : Blurred Lines

- Purity vs Filth: Blurred Lines Purity and filth have been on opposite sides of the fence ever since a distinction was made between the two. The purity vs filth battle can be seen in many aspects of life, whether that be displayed in race, religion, or even geographically.

The Desire to Perpetuate the Purity of Children

- In The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss wrote, “When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.” Children live in a world full of innocence, ignorance, and bliss. They are not affected by the corruption of the world; therefore, naiveté is preserved. In J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, innocence is shown through the pond and Holden’s desire for being a “catcher in the rye”; through Phoebe, Allie, and Sunny for their adolescence; and through the carrousel and the Museum of Natural History for their conservation....   [tags: J.D.

Sexual Purity And The Bible

- Sexual purity plays an important role in the Bible. In fact, it has one of the most central roles in the Bible due to its beginning. From the very beginning, God created man and then woman because it was not good for man to be alone. (Gen. 2:18) God created sex as a gift to Adam and Eve. It is an act that follows after marriage and unifies male and female into ‘one flesh.’ (Gen. 2:24). Sex is an act so intimate that is written, “Adam knew Eve.” (Gen. 4:1) Genesis, the beginning and basis for the rest of the Bible, shows that God had intended male and female to be together in a monogamous relationship where sex only occurred between them as a unifier and procreation....   [tags: Sexual intercourse, Marriage, Human sexuality]

Comparing and Contrasting the Chiaroscuros Between Othello and Iago
