That I scarce was sure I heard you”–here I opened wide the door–Darkness there and nothing more.

An important element of an autobiography is self-evaluation or introspection. Which sentences in this excerpt from the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin show the narrator’s introspection? In truth, I found myself incorrigible with respect to Order; and now I am grown old, and my memory bad, I feel very sensibly the want of it. But, on the whole, tho’ I never arrived at the perfection I had been so ambitious of obtaining, but fell far short of it, yet I was, by the endeavour, a better and a happier man than I otherwise should have been if I had not attempted it; as those who aim at perfect writing by imitating the engraved copies, tho’ they never reach the wish’d-for excellence of those copies, their hand is mended by the endeavor, and is tolerable while it continues fair and legible. It may be well my posterity should be informed that to this little artifice, with the blessing of God, their ancestor ow’d the constant felicity of his life, down to his 79th year, in which this is written. I hope, therefore, that some of my descendants may follow the example and reap the benefit.

Answer:

  1. In truth, I found myself incorrigible with respect to Order; and now I am grown old, and my memory bad, I feel very sensibly the want of it.
  2. But, on the whole, tho’ I never arrived at the perfection I had been so ambitious of obtaining, but fell far short of it, yet I was, by the endeavour, a better and a happier man than I otherwise should have been if I had not attempted it; as those who aim at perfect writing by imitating the engraved copies, tho’ they never reach the wish’d-for excellence of those copies, their hand is mended by the endeavor, and is tolerable while it continues fair and legible.

Explanation:

  1. In this sentence , Franklin admits he is obessed with order. He sees this by himself; he is not referring to what other people may think of him. He also talks about his weaknesses: he has become old and his memory is failing him.
  2. In this second sentence, the speaker talks about his own opinion about the efforts he himself has made. He has always wanted to achieve perfection but the only way he has found to attain it was by his own endeless trials. He has never given in; he will never abandon his efforts. Here, he compares himself with  writers. Both , the writers and he himself may not attain excellence , but they will go on working.

BRUTUS: O Cassius, I am sick of many griefs. CASSIUS: Of your philosophy you make no use, If you give place to accidental evils. BRUTUS: No man bears sorrow better. Portia is dead. . . . [S]he fell distraught, And, her attendants absent, swallowed fire. . . . Speak no more of her. Give me a bowl of wine. In this I bury all unkindness, Cassius. . . . CASSIUS: Portia, art thou gone? BRUTUS: No more, I pray you. Messala, I have here receivèd letters, . . . How is Brutus’ reaction to Portia’s suicide an example of the philosophy of stoicism? Brutus is overwhelmed by emotions. How is Brutus’ reaction to Portia’s suicide an example of the philosophy of stoicism? Brutus is overwhelmed by emotion and cries because stoics value emotion over reason. Rather than being overwhelmed with emotion by her death, Brutus controls his emotions in typical stoic fashion and continues planning his military strategy against Octavius. Brutus refuses to continue planning the military strategy because stoics believe that another person’s death is not fate but a cruel consequence of life. Brutus feels nothing regarding Portia’s death, which is a stoic value.

Brutus’ reaction to Portia’s suicide is an example of the philosophy of stoicism because rather
than being overwhelmed with emotion by her death, Brutus controls his
emotions in typical stoic fashion and continues planning his military
strategy against Octavius.

Stoics valued strength at all times first, and considered that there is no time for emotions when reason should be followed.

Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson Part 1 Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. “I incline to, Cain’s heresy*,” he used to say. “I let my brother go to the devil in his quaintly ‘own way.'” In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of down-going men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer’s way. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Mr. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsman, the well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who encountered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend. For all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. *The biblical story of Cain and Abel is a story about two brothers who gave offerings to God. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Jealous, Cain killed his brother. When God asked Cain where Abel was, Cain said, Am I my brother’s keeper? By saying this, Cain implied that what his brother did was his own business. (Genesis 4:1-16) Which of these character traits cited in the passage supports the claim that Mr. Utterson was often “the last reputable acquaintance” of “down-going men”? “backward in sentiment” “austere with himself” “undemonstrative at the best” “approved tolerance for others”

If Mr. Utterson is known as the last reputable acquaintance of down going men, then he does not shy away from people of questionable character. Of the options given, the only one that is a “good” quality regarding Mr. Utterson is option D: “approved tolerance for others”, this meaning that he has tolerance for other people, therefore allowing him to be an acquaintance of down going men.

Option A is incorrect because it says that he does not express his feelings which would not enforce the claim that he mingles with people, Options B and C are the same, since they are negative qualities that make Mr. Utterson seem like a hermit.
