Making sacrifices is how humans learn what is truly important in their lives. Darnay is an example of this because after his first trial, he sacrificed his wealth and social status to be with Lucie. Lucie also gave up a great deal of her time and energy to help her father recover, because she was the only one whose agape love could restore him to himself. Finally, the paradigm shift that occurs when Sydney Carton gives himself up so that Lucie’s family can remain together proves how making the ultimate sacrifice leads to the greatest happiness. This sacrifice made him realize that he truly did have a purpose in life. Sacrifice being necessary for happiness demonstrates how humans have the desire to be independent; sacrifice allows them to feel that they have created their happiness. Human condition desires this so that humans will work to live out their full potential; their destiny. Though some people find happiness through activities, accomplishments and people that they enjoy, others feel the need to be a hero. Many people make heroic sacrifices because of the extrinsic motivation to be viewed as a superior member of society, instead of the intrinsic desire to help others. Though modern day sacrifices do not generally include dying for one another, intrinsic motivation for sacrifice is the only way to attain true happiness.
Selfishness is a powerful feeling that can have harsh repercussions. Doctor Manette’s time in jail is an example of these repercussions caused by the Evremondes’ selfishness. The third estate must also endure frightening living conditions due to the selfishness of the first and second estates. Finally, Mme Defarge’s selfishness causes Darnay and his family to suffer during his arrest. This all demonstrates how selfishness consistently results in the pain and agony of others. Unfortunately, humankind continues to choose greed over compassion which leads to awful consequences and misanthropic opinions. The key to abolishing human suffering is to control the feelings that we experience.
Sacrifice is fueled by the love that people share for one another. Miss Pross is a prime example of this as she sacrifices her hearing in order to distract Madame Defarge for her beloved Lucie. Jarvis Lorry also offers the remainder of his life to see his friends, the Manettes, reunite and live in peace. Finally, Sydney Carton makes the ultimate sacrifice for those he loves when he willingly trades places with his doppelganger, Charles Darnay. This all demonstrates how a person's self-sacrifice will benefit those that they are devoted to more than it will help themselves. Without the readiness to sacrifice what one holds most dear for those that they love, humans would create a misanthropic society where no kindness could ever manifest.
Sacrifices driven by love strengthen relationships. Lucie Manette demonstrates this when she disregards her own desires in hope to cure her fathers insanity. Sydney Carton also makes a sacrifice in spite of love when he takes Charles Darnay's death sentence so Darnay could return to Lucie. Finally, Miss Pross was also an example of sacrifice as she devoted her whole life to take care of Lucie and her family. This all demonstrates how great sacrifices and only made for people they truly love. Sacrifices are always made in spite of love, because of the fact that it does not benefit the sacrificer whatsover.
Sacrifice is the most important factor when loving someone. The character Lucie Manette exhibits this sacrifice when she gives up her previous life to live with her father – who she loves. Dr. Manette also demonstrates this when he wanted to stop his shoe making for the family he loves. Finally, Sydney Carton manifests this sacrifice when he gives up his life to keep Lucie Manette and the husband she adores, Charles Darnay, together. This all demonstrates how all relationships must be accompanied with sacrifices. With this in mind, love demonstrates that it is the most selfless act humanity is capable of executing.
Rebirth often completely changes the lives of those reborn and the people around them. The character Dr. Manette shows this change when he returns from his time in prison and his personality changes as a result of living with his daughter. Jarvis Lorry is also completely changed after creating a friendship with Lucie Manette and Dr. Manette after Dr. Manette’s return from prison. Finally Charles Darnay demonstrates how rebirth can lead to new relationships and a better future. This all demonstrates how rebirth only occurs after a time of great suffering. Unfortunately, there is no way to experience rebirth without suffering because the knowledge and new ideas that come with rebirth come from experience.
One must undergo suffering in order to live a life filled with power and strength. Dr.Manette exhibits this by living most of his life imprisoned to becoming a well known and respected physician. Sydney Carton is also a victim of suffering when feeling worthless but he finds purpose in oddest of places which brought him power and strength. Finally, Mme. Defarge is an example of how one must undergo hardships in order to live a powerful life. This demonstrates how all suffering and pain leads to a life full of power and strength. All characters who appeared doomed and disenfranchised for a better life were able to turn suffering into a fallacy. Unfortunately, this book will always be relevant in one’s life as it is in the human condition to undergo suffering but one must not become habituated because in return, it will always lead to a life filled with power and strength.
Loving actions can have negative repercussions. The character Sydney Carton demonstrates this when he gave up his life to allow Lucy Manette to be with Darnay. Madame Defarge loved her sister, after her death she wanted to kill those who killed her sister, while in pursuit of this she ultimately ends up dying for her sister. Finally, Miss Pross was an example of how acting out of love will cause suffering through her fight with madame Defarge where Miss Pross ends up with Defarge’s blood on her hands. This all demonstrates how love ultimately leads to the characters’ suffering. This is still relevant in today’s world, there are cases where a person may do something to protect a loved one, but end up being hurt, or getting in trouble with the law.
In people’s lives, sometimes they experience a rebirth which completely changes who they are as a person. Mr. Lorry, a character from the novel, demonstrates this rebirth as he lives with Dr. Manette and Lucie, which changes him from a strict man of business, to a man who cares for others. Dr. Manette is also a character from the novel who also experiences a life changing rebirth when he meets his daughter, Lucie, which changes him from a dark, gloomy person who is misanthropic and feels angst, forged by his years in prison, to a regular man, living a life as a doctor with his family. Lastly, Sydney Carton is a man who is constantly drunk and cares for nobody in the world until he meets Lucie who helps to change Carton into a reborn person who is sober, and cares enough for others that he is willing to sacrifice his life for Lucie and her family. These characters all demonstrate how the characters in the novel live dull lives and experience a rebirth which changes their character and lives in a positive way. Like the era of Enlightenment which these characters live in where everything is being reformed and reborn, people can be reborn to live new lives which are better than their previous lives.
Emotional strength is something that cannot be measured by others, but rather by oneself. The character Doctor Monette truly shows this by overcoming the emotional obstacle of his imprisonment by trying to save Darnay and by finding the strength to protect Lucie. Secondly Mme Defarge was also able to use her emotional strength by seeking revenge for her family’s death and by giving power to the third estate. Finally Sydney Carton used his emotional strength by sacrificing his love for the one who he truly loves, and finding his true destiny. This all demonstrates how people need to undergo extreme hardships in order to strengthen themselves and how overcoming what has happened to them will lead them to do what they truly want to accomplish. Doctor Monette was finally able to be there for his daughter, Mme Defarge was able to make a difference during the French revolution and Sydney Carton was able to help someone who cared for him and who he loved too. Though in today’s society, people tend to give up easily and have a hard time coming back from an emotional trauma, this book shows how by using these events as a way to strengthen will help people accomplish great things rather than letting the experience hinder and change who they are. Everyone has the potential to possess great strength no matter what happens throughout their lives.
Sacrifice is the power to another’s happiness. Lucie demonstrates her love for Doctor Manette by sacrificing her time to resurrect her father from his dark memories. Sydney Carton also makes a sacrifice in order to ensure happiness by sacrificing his life so that the Darnay family can be at peace. Finally, Miss Pross is an example of how her sacrifice of losing her hearing, allows Lucie and little Lucie to be free. This all demonstrates how in order for one to live in peace, another must make a sacrifice. Although sacrifices are difficult for one to make, the result of ensuring one’s happiness can be worth more than one’s own life. Without love for one another, humans would never be reborn to see the enlightenment.
Everyone experiences suffering throughout their life, this can come from the loss of a loved one, isolation, and disease. The character, Doctor Manette was emasculated by his lonely prison cell, his relationship with his daughter was his happy ending at the dark tunnel. Sydney Carton also went through pain when his only companion was liquor, his unconditional love for Lucy allowed him to die for a loved one compassionately. Finally, Lucie Manette was devastated and heartbroken when her husband was sentenced to death. Her suffering ended and her life became full when her husband was given a second chance. These are all excellent examples of how one must endure great suffering in order to find their true happiness. Although suffering is a dark time one must use their fortitude and know there is always light at the end.
In order to have a stable and concrete relationship there has to be sacrifices made. These sacrifices can be demonstrated by several characters such as, Dr. Manette who considered giving up his shoe making business to be with his family. Also, Jarvis Lorry overturned his time to be able to make the Manette's family happy. Finally, Sydney carton sacrifices his precious life in taking a death sentence for Charles Darnay. This all demonstrates how successful relationships of any kind come with a heavy weight of sacrifice. Without sacrifices from people within a community, that community cannot grown or even manifest kindliness among its members.
Love is a type of suffering. Miss Pross corresponds with suffering because she devotes her whole life to Lucie Manette. Doctor Manette and Lucie were also an example that being together and their agape love caused them both to suffer. Lucie suffered by giving up her life to help her father and her father struggled to help her husband be released from prison. Finally, Sydney Carton's love for Lucie, leads to his ultimate sacrifice to rejoin Lucie and her husband. This all demonstrates how positive relationships with others causes a large amount of suffering. Unfortunately, this book explains that in reality there is always sacrifice and suffering when it comes to loving another.
Love is the driving force behind self-sacrifice. Mr. Lorry demonstrates this by sacrificing his career as a businessman in order to come to the need of Lucie and Dr. Manette. Sydney Carton was also encouraged by his agape love for Lucie to willingly take Charles Darnay's place at the guillotine. Finally, Miss Pross sacrifices her hearing to protect Lucie and Little Lucie from Madame Defarge. These character all demonstrate that self-sacrifice leads to the well-being of loved ones. Although difficult, self-sacrifice exhibits the devotion and care human beings have for each other.
Love is energy that makes an individual decide irrational behaviours. The character Lucie Manette loves Charles Darnay and when Charles was imprisoned she would visit him periodically for a few hours outside the prison wall in hope of a glance of him. Gaspar also committed irrational behaviour by love when after the Marquis had accidently killed his son, it had influenced him to drive a blade through the Marquis's heart to kill him. Finally, Sydney Carton was an example of how love makes irrational behaviours is when he had changed places with Charles Darnay who was condemned to death, for the sake of Lucie Manette. This all demonstrates how love is the only power that completely controls an individual. Unfortunately, this book shows the epitome of the unlimitedness of love and the dangers that follow behind it.
Happiness is an emotional state that is always achievable. The character Jarvis Lorry overcomes an obstacle when he breaks his apollonian nature and experiences a sense of caring for the Manette family which leads to his happiness. Charles Darnay has also surmounted an obstacle, and is lead to his happiness when he escapes his imprisonment in France. Darnay then lives happily with Lucie Manette in England. Finally, Doctor Manette endures suffering which leads to his empowerment when he forgets his strife from the Bastille. These all demonstrate how overcoming obstacles leads to unconditional happiness. Unfortunately, Suffering is prevalent in the lives of every human being, but these obstacles result in an attainable happiness.
Resurrection has the power to affect drastic change. The character Sydney Carton personified this dramatic change by sacrificing himself to save Charles Darnay. Dr. Manette is also a character that was resurrected that lead to the protection of Lucie. Finally, Jerry Cruncher is an example that resurrection comes to those in need as he gives up grave robbing. This all demonstrates how resurrection comes to those in need. All these characters were resurrected in the end for a greater cause. So although the characters in this novel were resurrected, sadly, it is not comparable to the real world where people in society often are not. Humans that are in need of resurrection are often frowned upon for being in a certain position and are not given a helping hand. Hopefully, society can adapt to the ways that resurrection is portrayed in the novel to change the lives of many.
Love leads to death. The character Mme. Defarge demonstrated this dramatic example by her death at the hands of Miss Pross due to her love for the revolution and her family. Dr. Manette was also a victim of how love leads to death as his love for his family had led to his death of his sanity for example his creation of the shoes. Finally Sydney Carton was an example of how love leads to death when he had died for Charles even though Charles never payed any attention to him. Sydney had died to keep a love of Lucie’s by her side because his love for Lucie was so strong. Love often leads to negative consequences is shown throughout Dickens’ novel through many characters through the death of sanity and thoughts to the loss of life lowering moral for everyone around. This all demonstrates how love leads to death. Unfortunately, this book is still relevant today as there are still many mistakes occurring due to love like war, arguments, and immoral actions. Love can also bring positives but eventually love will die one way or another.
Hope is a form of ignorance. This is shown through the character of Charles Darnay when he ignores the fact that he will be killed in Paris when he leaves to save Gabelle. This is also shown through the actions of Lucie Monnette when she visited Charles Darnay every day, ignorant of the fact that he would be tried and executed. Lastly, it is shown through Sydney Carton when he hopes that one day he can be with Lucy even though the reality is that he cannot. Hope blinds many people throughout the novel by hiding the reality from them. This all demonstrates how hope is a form of ignorance. People around the world follow similar paths as the characters in the novel in the way that they also are ignorant of the world around them when they are hopeful. Unfortunateley, this will be the case for humanity as hope is a quality that one cannot lose
Eternal happiness is paramount to a great life. It establishes a healthy, long lifestyle, and furthermore develops great relationships. Charles Darnay greatly personifies this statement when he cannot be found guilty during his first trial when Sydney Carton points out, that the two share a great resemblance. Lucie Manette also demonstrates this when her father recalls his old life and all about it including Lucie. When he begins to remember more and more about Lucie, she begins to tear up and cry as she does not know hot to express her amount of content. Finally, Charles Darnay was again an example of how eternal happiness is paramount for a great life when him and Sydney change clothes and Charles Darnay escapes his accusation of treason against France. As he is visited by Sydney, Carton tells Charles to switch clothes with him as the two are very similar in appearance, and only one is a prisoner. Charles Darnay is incredibly grateful for what Sydney has done, and does not know hot to express himself. As overcoming obstacles leads to eternal happiness, the events occurring in this novel are clear representations of this statement. This all demonstrates how conquering challenges in life grants satisfaction and joy only known by said person. Unfortunately, the evolution of humankind has caused many people to cower or run away from obstacles, leaving them unknowing of the satisfaction that is success.
Without love there would be no true acts of devotion. Lucie Manette rescuing her father from jail expresses the great unconditional love between two people. Miss Pross also endured a great love, when she dedicates her life to raising Lucie Manette. Finally Sydney Carton was an example of sacrifice for true love when he switches places with Charles Darnay in the jail cell to keep the life inside of Lucie. With great love, comes great sacrifice. This all demonstrates how loving someone with every once in their body will lead to horrifying actions upon one self due to the fear of losing the love of their life.
Not everyone can find happiness but some give up everything for on to find it. The character Miss.Pross suffered and was unhappy when Soloman took everything from her then later on he is successful and happy. Doctor Manette was also a victim of suffering when he gives Lucie his blessing to marry Charles and to be happy. Finally Sydney Carton has demonstrated this dramatic heroism by changing places with Charles Darnay to be killed by the guillotine. This all demonstrates how not everyone can be happy and how some people live in pain and suffering much like Miss.Pross, Dr.Manette and Sydney Carton. Unfortunately, this is still relevant today when certain people in society sacrifice happiness for others to find their happiness on life.
Depression causes suffering of an individual and their common people. The character Mme. Defarge evokes pathos from realizing that her intrinsic actions and sadist self causes others to undergo grieve. Dr. Manette also endures a depressed state after he is forced to give up his routinely task of making shoes for eighteen years. Finally, was an example of sorrow leading to adversity is reflected on Sydney Carton and his addiction of abusing a substance for his absent happiness. This all demonstrates how depression always leaves to inhuman actions. These actions can be done consciously or unconsciously. Unfortunately, this book shows the epitome of sadness and the matters that follow.
Sacrifice is essential for change. Sydney Carton shows this by giving his life for Charles Darnay so that he could be safe and return to his family. Miss Pross also demonstrates sacrifice by killing Madame Defarge, losing her hearing in the process therefore allowing Lucie and her family to escape. Finally, Jarvis Lorry sacrifices his valuable time and his career so that the Manette family could be well taken care of. These characters prove how sacrifice can be beneficial for others. While sacrifice is painful, in the future it leads to a better way of life.
