Sand had urged Flaubert to abandon his typically harsh and satiric treatment of his characters for a more compassionate way of writing about suffering, and the story of Felicity is apparently the result of this effort. In the meantime, Flaubert had run up against financial difficulties, had watched as Julie was reduced to blind old age, and had lost George Sand (who died in 1875).
In Russia, the subjects of choice were perhaps more unusual: children, animals, and madmen were a few of the characters depicted by such writers as Gogol, Turgenev, and Tolstoy. “A Simple Heart” itself was published in the collection Three Tales, and Flaubert’s other two tales are very different: “The Legend of St. Julien the Hospitable”, which abounds in grotesque description and tells a story of adventure, tragedy, and redemption; and “Heroics”, which turns a lush Middle Eastern setting into a theater for grand religious debates.
To a large extent, Flaubert’s brand of realism was based not on the subject, but on the use of minutely-rendered details, on an aura of historical accuracy, and on the psychological plausibility of his plots and characters. Those plots and characters could involve a simple servant, a renowned medieval saint, or aristocrats from ancient times.
I want to move my readers to pity, I want to make sensitive souls weep, being one myself.” Felicity is indeed a loyal servant and a pious woman, and Flaubert keeps a chronicle of her responses to major losses and disappointments. She hardly ever spoke, and her upright stance and deliberate movements gave her the appearance of a woman made out of wood, driven as if by clockwork” (4-5).
Are these references meant to show how little Felicity really knows about the world, or do they lend her existence a special air of excitement and dignity? All page numbers refer to Roger Whitehorse's translation of Gustave Flaubert's Three Tales, which contains the full text of “A Simple Heart” (introduction and notes by Geoffrey Wall; Penguin Books, 2005).
As a result of the pandemic and global economic disruption, many startups are being forced to rethink the sustainability of their core businesses. Only startups that become lean and devise a solid framework for action will find themselves well-equipped to navigate this new, challenging reality.
Lean methodology is a way of optimizing the people, resources and efforts of your organization to help generate value for the customer. Whether you improve the efficiency of current processes to better meet customer needs or find ways to collaborate with your network, the key is to enable continuous improvement to deliver quicker, simpler and better alternatives.
By neither delaying nor panicking and asking the necessary questions up front, companies can quickly unravel some obvious low-hanging fruits. Those low-hanging fruits will give you the energy and mindset to keep unraveling more opportunities into the unknown.
It’s important to inform your team of your findings as a founder and share the brutal truth as early as possible. Waiting to decide is a decision in itself, and asking the right questions helps guide the business in the right direction.
In other words, work toward augmenting what the company was doing before with additional offerings that are more relevant for customers at this moment. It’s an economical way for companies to deliver both returns on investment and engagement that underpins good customer relationships.
I believe that until this point, there always seemed to be pressure to grow based on evaluation raising, and profitability didn't seem to matter. Where there was once a time narrowly focused on being able to triple the business at all costs, now it’s acceptable to double your growth and show profitability.
Tighten your startup's belt, and focus more on profitability, sustainability and positive cash flow, rather than growth. This will help you efficiently improve your conditions and develop a path to profitability while keeping your business supported enough to weather the storm.
Because missionaries have voluntarily chosen to live a life of sacrifice, there’s a lot we can learn from them as we collectively walk through a season of crisis and self-isolation. In part one of this podcast, we explore the things church leaders are learning from the missionaries they’ve sent to the field.
In a lot of fictional or fantasy settings, a common trope is some variant of a village or tribe having to sacrifice one of its own members or goods, usually a virgin girl for a yearly or otherwise regular offering to appease a monster or dragon for either ritual or consumption. Another example lies in Seven Samurai and its American remake The Magnificent Seven in which bandits raid a village of its food and resources, or they would destroy everything.
If anything illustrates the idea of “pick your damn sacrifice ”, it is a command set forth by the monster, the dragon, and the bandit. The objective for the sacrifice is to pick the one that is altogether the least worst case scenario.
Just like the promise of virgins in the afterlife, sacrifice is encouraged to further the ends of the powers that be. Sacrifice is an exchange that purposefully results in net loss for the sacrificial party, and for the extortionist’s unearned gain.
They get even more creative: would you rather your children stay kidnapped than give the kidnappers the ransom? It is in fact true that oftentimes you are made to make that sacrifice, but we’re talking about a tragic hypothetical situation that shouldn’t have to happen.
Besides, what makes you think one day they won’t just follow through with their threats even if you did pay the sacrifice ? The one you are beholden to is in a special place of usurped power over you, and he sets his arbitrary rules.
You sacrifice to appease, that is, to keep the monster happy in meager hopes that he won’t do something worse. You may live another day, but you have not warded off the monster, neither in principle nor in practice.
You saved the village today, but you’ve also sustained the cycle. There is nothing heroic about professing to love your enemy, who only values you as a sacrificial means to his end.
It almost feels sacrilegious to even conceive of giving as having a return by design. There is no joy in merely escaping the scrutiny and judgment by the mob only to be faced with it again as expected.
Let us dispense with another confusion, this semblance of an idea that sacrifice is synonymous with an equitable form of trade. You select the least bad sacrifice, to attain what appears to be a desired goal, almost manifesting itself as an exchange of which burden to cut loose.
But an incontrovertible aspect about sacrificing is that one gives something they value, that is, something they wouldn’t just pass along under normal circumstances. A real trade, on the other hand, is driven by desire for the exchange.
From something small scale like me ordering a glass of whiskey at my favorite bar because I was in the mood for it, to something larger scale like purchasing a synthesizer that has just the right electron sound that I want that I can’t find in any other instrument, a trade involves the mutual trade of something they are willing to part with for something they value even more, be it spur of the moment or based on long term ambition. One voluntarily makes the trade because they are actively interested in the transaction.
Love, for all the energy mankind has spent on the subject, is largely spoken in terms of how it is an act of service, measured by how much is given and applied to the object of love by the lover. For all the due recognition love gets as an act of desire, it is then confused by being touted as an act of self- sacrifice, like a male praying mantis offering its head to the female.
Fortunately, love is not sacrifice and neither side has to perform that to manifest it. It is a resonance of value expressed outwards in the real world.
It is the desire to bring something more to life than it already is, made visible through human action. Sacrifice is a statement as thus: “For you, I hereby cut myself down as a gesture.” If an act of love is self-sacrificial, be aware of what is happening.
Now that you have sacrificed anything from your time, your space, your money, and your dreams for the object of your love, what possible reason could the object of your love be happy that you’ve subjected yourself to all this? He professes to sacrifice himself, and in so doing subordinate his time, his space, his money, resources, dreams and visions in the name of the woman of his affections.
Remember that love in the proper sense is a pure value response. Love is true if it is expressed with the highest honesty and baring of soul, that in no way abnegates itself but instead presents itself unabashedly with no apologies.
Likewise, the guitarist is not a slave to his instrument, but rather, the guitar is unabashedly a part of his very essence that he finds himself in. They are happy, mentally healthiest, and masculine with no apologies in this glorious embrace of these loves that are particular to him.
When she derides these men as “boys who think they are men” in the vein of Tom Lauren, she makes clear her intent to subordinate a given man to her parasitic whims. It’s bad enough when this sort of toxic relationship is more obvious, but it should be more menacing to realize that this is the same kind of relationship that is often couched in veil of “romance”, self-disposability as an upheld aspect of masculinity, geocentric parasitism off of male altruism, and princesses’ fantasies of Happily Ever After…all done with contented smiles.
Any case made for love that involves the destructive offering of the self towards a twisted reaper of souls must be shown for what it is: despicable.
