... 7). As Lewis grew up, he and his brother were raised in a bookish home without the influences of technology of the 20th century to bother them (“Dr. Bruce L Edwards,” C.S.

Lewis' brother, Warnie, wanted the animals to be a little more up to date compared to Lewis' fixing ... The Pilgrim's Regress: An Allegorical Apology for Christianity, Reason and Romanticism published in 1933. This is the story of Lewis's journey from disbelief to faith (“Dr. Bruce L Edwards,” C.S.

... fix it. It is obvious to me that the responsibility for forcing the board to sell the company is clearly yours!" After this there was a brief adjournment, Charlie Byran finally came back with a proposal to cut the IAM's salary wages to 15 percent since the IAM had contributed 5 percent through productivity gains. An attached condition was also proposed that a new chief executive officer to be appointed ... came out to persuade Frank to resign.

76: Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest
... views of marriage practices. Earlier in the scene, when Ernest(Jack) announces his intention of proposing to Gwendolyn, Algernon does not congratulate him, rather he denounces the entire institution. At Ernest's announcement of the proposal, Algy exclaims, "I thought you had come up for pleasure?- I call that business". Later, Algy's comments support the idea of adultery once one is married. When Ernest finally does propose to Gwendolyn, he first must proceed through established flirting rituals followed by a formal proposal. These rituals, such as Gwendolyn's demand for a formal proposal, demonstrate Wilde's conception of outward appearances being more important than true love. In fact, Ernest's love for Gwendolyn seems rather arbitrary while Gwendolyn indirectly admits that she loves Ernest only for his ...

Goodwood's offer to Isabel came at an early stage of her moral growth, when she was not really sure of what she wanted, so she could accept. She was beginning to enjoy ... She wanted the freedom to judge, and to act on those judgments. By marrying Goodwood, she would be giving up some of that freedom. Another reason to refuse Goodwood's offer was because accepting his proposal of marriage would mean returning to America. To Isabel, America was not a very fulfilling place. Her father had just died, and she was living in a house by herself. There was very little ...
