The Scarlet Letter by: Nathaniel Hawthorne. Chapter 11 Inside a Heart. Page 1 Page 1 Page 2 Page 3. Original Text Modern Text After the incident last described, the intercourse between the clergyman and the physician, though externally the same, was really of another character than it had previously been. The intellect of Roger Chillingworth had now a sufficiently plain path before it.
It was not, indeed, precisely that which he had laid out for himself to tread. Calm, gentle, passionless, as he appeared, there was yet, we fear, a quiet depth of malice, hitherto latent, but active now, in this unfortunate old man, which led him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy. To make himself the one trusted friend, to whom should be confided all the fear, the remorse, the agony, the ineffectual repentance, the backward rush of sinful thoughts, expelled in vain! All that guilty sorrow, hidden from the world, whose great heart would have pitied and forgiven, to be revealed to him, the Pitiless, to him, the Unforgiving!
All that dark treasure to be lavished on the very man, to whom nothing else could so adequately pay the debt of vengeance! Following the incident just described, the relationship between the minister and the doctor changed substantially, though it outwardly appeared the same. Roger Chillingworth now had a clear path in front of him, even if it was not quite the one he had meant to take. And although he seemed calm, gentle, and reasonable, I am afraid there was a hidden well of malice that stirred from inside this poor old man and allowed him to conceive a more personal revenge than anyone else ever could.
Dimmesdale confided all the fear, remorse, agony, ineffective repentance, and sinful thoughts he struggled to keep away!
The world would have pitied and forgiven him for all that guilty sorrow. But instead he only revealed himself to the pitiless and unforgiving doctor! All that dark treasure was lavished on the one man who sought to use it for vengeance! Roger Chillingworth, however, was inclined to be hardly, if at all, less satisfied with the aspect of affairs, which Providence—using the avenger and his victim for its own purposes, and, perchance, pardoning, where it seemed most to punish—had substituted for his black devices.
A revelation, he could almost say, had been granted to him. It mattered little, for his object, whether celestial, or from what other region. By its aid, in all the subsequent relations betwixt him and Mr. Dimmesdale, not merely the external presence, but the very inmost soul of the latter seemed to be brought out before his eyes, so that he could see and comprehend its every movement. He could play upon him as he chose.
No fear on that freeway of love
Would he arouse him with a throb of agony? The victim was for ever on the rack; it needed only to know the spring that controlled the engine;—and the physician knew it well! Would he startle him with sudden fear? Yet Roger Chillingworth was no less satisfied with this turn of events that chance had substituted for his own wicked schemes.
I think its the best way to justify his loyalty and I found out that instead of guessing, right now I have access to his phone remotely anything that goes in and out of his phone is exactly what goes in and out of my phone.

I see everything,i hear everything. I am truly sorry that this is what it takes for you to foster a feeling of integrity in your marriage. Loyalty by fear or force is not authentic. When I was 17 I was in a six months online and phone calls relationship with a man. He messaged me online first. He profile said he was single and a twenty-one. After five months we started making plans to met in person. So he started telling me the truth about himself. Slowly he revealed that he had a young child but he wasn't married to the mom, then he let me know he had other children.
That he wasn't twenty-one. Then his wife called me, told me I was a homewrecker and to stay away from her man. I messaged the man getting mad at him for lying to me about not being married and ended the relationship. He continued to message me saying they were separated, they were separated but trying to work things through, separating but still living together. I never messaged him back but I continued to get angry phone calls from the wife for a few months after. I was stupid and naive for believing that man but I would never have started a relationship if I had know he was married.
If he hadn't lied from the start or had been in search for someone I would never had been apart of an 'affair'. Lawrence Josephs, Ph. His research focuses on infidelity and the role of authenticity in intimate relationships.

The following morning I was brought down to theatre to have a stent put in, which was also a traumatic experience. I had never even heard of a stent before, and suddenly I was there having it inserted. The doctors and nurses were very nice and kind but I still found it all very daunting. I was also put on cholesterol medication and a beta blocker.

But I was referred for a six-week cardio rehab programme which I found invaluable. Twice a week, the cardiac nurses, Mary and Ann, along with Marian the physiotherapist, put me through a circuit programme. This was really helpful because all the time during the exercise, they monitored my heart while I was hooked up to a special machine. During the weekly classes, a dietitian, a cardiologist and a pharmacist came in to teach us how to look after ourselves in future: they were a great help as they explained everything to us.
I also visit my own doctor regularly for check-ups and I see my cardiologist once a year, so I feel I am keeping on top of things. My diet has also changed dramatically as I am much more conscious of the food I eat and try to eat healthily all the time. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, have swapped red meat for fish and chicken, and have cut out junk food. No one expects to have problems with their heart until they are older, but I was only 50 and my symptoms were not typical. Thankfully, my doctor persisted until she found out what was wrong with me. So I would encourage people to go to the doctor and get checked if they have any concerns.
