Many people have a feeling that he or she is being watched, it can have an effect that makes them nervous or act strange. In the story, Nick and his friends have just come from a heated argument, as they drive endlessly in the direction of the Valley of Ashes. When they are almost there, Nick notices something. Fitzgerald writes, “Then as Dr.T. J. Eckleburg’s eyes came into view, I remembered Gatsby’s caution about gasoline.” (122) Nick notices the eyes and he feels like he is being watched. He feels pressured to do or say something. So he immediately remembers to mention the gas to Tom, like it was the only thing he could have done to feel safe again. He is not the only one who gets a strong feeling from the eyes; George tells Myrtle that God sees everything.

According to the bible, in Jeremiah 23:24, “Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth?” When George finds out that Myrtle is cheating on him with Tom, he doesn’t take it well at all. He abuses her while she tries to deny her affairs. God sees everything with ease and that is exactly what Mr. Wilson thinks, “God knows what you’ve been doing, everything you’ve been doing, you may fool me, but you can’t fool God! [....] He was looking at the eyes of Dr. T. J. Eckleburg.” (159) This clearly shows that the eyes of Dr. T. J. Eckleburg can be a symbol to the eyes of God. Because Myrtle is cheating on George, it causes many problems. They get in a fight and as Myrtle tries to escape him, she runs out to Tom’s car, but Toms not driving the car so she ...

Now the true meaning of this quote “survival of the motivated” comes in the sense that Leo goes through so many struggles to stay alive because o

    When one hears virtue, the ideas that come to mind are morality and righteousness. In essence, these are conventional Christian values that have become widely known today. However, in the context of giving advice to would-be rulers, Machiavelli defines the concept of virtue as virtù—one’s own strength and courage to do whatever is necessary to achieve a goal, even if the act was immoral.

    One standard academic argument is that the media’s influence operates in terms of framing issues and setting the agenda for political discussion. In other words, the media tells us what to think about but not what to think. People form opinions from the information that is available. If that information is limited in some way, those opinions will be affected. Generally, the media have greater influence on undecided voters than on decided ones. They also have a greater influence at times of scandal or crisis, or when there is a highly polarized question driving an election. An example of that i
