y = ax 2 + bx + c a + bi, where i = √-1 ax 2 + bx + c = 0
I wonder what they will think?! What if I'm wrong?????
I'm sorry Charlie.
In the story "Flowers for Algernon" the author is trying to put the point across that intelligence isn't everything!
"He has a very good mind, but it struggles under the specter of self-doubt" (p.235). This shows that Dr. Nemur isn't always happy even though he is "intelligent".
"The first I knew of it was when Mr. Donnegan showed me the pension" (p.234). This proves that being smart does not always make you more likable.
Ha Ha Ha! You really pulled a Charlie Gordon this time!
Oops! I guess I pulled a Charlie Gordon again!
Another theme that comes up in the story "Flowers for Algernon" is that things aren't always as they seem.
"I thot that was all but when I got up he stopped me" (p.222). In the story, Charlie thought that the test was just a simple test, but it was actually determining what his mind can process.
"Sometimes somebody will say hey look at Joe or Frank or George he really pulled a Charlie Gordon. I dont know why they say that but they always laff" (p.227). Charlie thought his co-workers were kind and friendly, but they actually were really mean to him.
