Frankenstein Final Assessment
doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned around, walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread."
(Chapter 5 Page 44)
The creature is realizing that he has to ignore somethings that people do to him and move on and not try to retaliate against them. This quote relates to modern day as if a kid is getting bullied he has to push through and ignore the bully and not become a bully himself.
(Chapter 5 Page 42)
Victor is realizing the creature he has created and is in absolute love with what he has done. This relates to modern day as someone creating a invention and being proud that it is successful.
(Chapter 24 Page 189)
Victor is now realizing that his creation is a monster and that he has to do something before someone will get hurt. This relates to modern day as in someone noticing their kid is a bully and they realize they didn't teach them the right things to do so they have to start teaching them how to act.
We rise; one wand'ring thought pollutes
We feel, conceive, or reason; laugh or weep,
Embrace fond woe, or cast our cares
It is the same: for, be it joy or sorrow,
The path of its departure still is free.
Man's yesterday may ne'er be like his
Nought may endure but mutability!"
(Chapter 10 Page 79)
Victor can't live his life with the creation he has made. Every step the creature is taking is bad and hurting Victor because he has to take responsibility for him. This relates to modern day as when someone say fixes a car and then realizes that they messed up and they have to go back and try to fix it but the person as already drove off with there car and they can't do anything about it but worry about it.
(Chapter 10 Page 81)
The creature is explaining that Victor needs to take responsibility for what he has done and just deal with it and if he doesn't then the creature will continue on with hurting or killing his loved ones and him. This quote relates to modern day as having to take actions for what you have done. He should have been there and stayed with the creature and took responsibility and taught the creature how to act and what to do with humans around him.
(Chapter 10 Page 83)
This is the creature telling Victor that all of the actions the creature has done he has to be responsible for because he did create the creature and he didn't teach him anything he just left. This quote relates to modern day as if you were to have a dog and it went and bite a human you have to be responsible and pay for the care of that human because your dog just went and bit this human.

Take it from Albert Einstein: “Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment and learn again to exercise his will — his personal responsibility.”
When people fail to take responsibility for their actions, the blame game begins. There’s always a scapegoat nearby, but that strategy doesn’t take long to unravel.

There is a saying, apparently from Oregon, that you do not know how big a tree is until you cut it down.
It is a human tendency not to value something until it is under assault or lost.Without accountability to an outside authority or standard, and without stigma, the only remaining responsibility is to self Self-which may have once meant one's conscience but now simply means one's feelings-has become for many people the one standard of behavior: If I feel good, the act is good. I have no accountability to anyone or anything but my feelings.
