My mother, dead and gone now… Anticleia —daughter of that great heart Autolycus — whom I had left alive when I sailed for sacred Troy. I broke into tears to see her here, but filled with pity, even throbbing with grief, I would not let her ghost approach the blood till I had questioned Tiresias myself.” In this moment, Odysseus learns that life isn’t easy and there will be moments of grief that must overcome. The sense of pain he feels now is transient and once he grows stronger again, he will be able to…

  • Personal Narrative: A New Place In Michigan

    this whole country actually. And even before I come here, I already surmise believed it. I was exhausted; I grabbed all my bags and lay down on my bed and locked the door.

  • John Stuart Mill: The Pros And Cons Of Utilitarianism

People have jobs and families that they need to tend to, which in my opinion comes before helping strangers. The pleasures standard that John Stuart…

    The utilitarianism and deontological ethical theories can be used to explain the solution to the ethical dilemma of pushing sales versus demeaning the body image of a consumer. The utilitarianism theory posits that the greater good is the only concern and that the right course of action would lead to the least amount of pain or the greatest pleasure.
