Martin Luther King, in my eyes, is considered one of the greatest role models for young people of all ages and races. It's as if no matter where you grow up in the world, wether it be in the U.S. or on the other side of the world, you will come to hear of Dr. King and his work. Another quote I found interesting was, "Injustice anywhere is a treat to justice everywhere. "This is what I think makes him a great role model, because he shows that there are always ways to make a difference, and to be equil is to be one as a whole. I admire and look up to Dr. King and his lessons because I've hurd the stories of struggle and hurt that people, who were just a little different, had to undergo.
Elements of Syntax in Utilitarianism John Stuart Mill was a great master of all things that involved persuasion. This was partly because of his great passion for the philosophy of Utilitarianism. He employed most of the realms of syntax to convince the reader that his ideals, pertaining to Utilitarianism, were the correct way that mankind should act in all situations. One of the first things about Mill’s work that is evident is his use of a sort of question and answer structure. “I feel that…preference,” is answered in the next paragraph with “until, by the improvement…in our character,” and “How can the will…or awakened,” is answered by the following sentence “Only by making the person desire virtue.” Mill does this to engage his audience in Utilitarianism and to answer common questions regarding his philosophy.
He was very well educated person, did not really much on his sense. He wanted to make sure that everything goes according to the book. He cared so much for what he believes what it is right to do, that he put his life in danger. After Ramsey did not want to translate the message they got, instead of going with the wind, and wine Ramsey respect, he fought for it, and lost Ramsey friendship, which was so important at that time. He did not just stop there; he did everything in his power to translate the message, and encouraged other people who were working under him.
One of the most influential people in Rome was Marcus Cicero, a great philopsoper as we say and exam most of his work today we see a story of a honored and respected man as well as loyal, but his loyalty would prove to be his greatest downfall and which would lead to his exicution. (pg. 149) Rome was built of lawyers, judges, and philosophers. (pg. 149) The romans were more practical thinkers and philosophers.
At times Pangloss has bizarre forms of reasoning, but until the end, Candide believes every word. In the beginning, Pangloss says “things cannot be other than they are, for since everything was made for a purpose, it follows that everything is made for the best purpose” (Voltaire 20). Through all of his hardships, Pangloss always held strong to his optimistic beliefs. Even in the very end, Pangloss was said to have often told Candide, “There is a chain of events in this best of all possible worlds; for if you had not been turned out of a beautiful mansion at the point of a jackboot for the love of Lady Cunegonde, and if you had not been involved in the Inquisition, and had not wandered over America on foot, and had not struck the Baron with your sword, and lost all those sheep you brought from Eldorado, you would not be here eating candied fruit and pistachio nuts” (Voltaire 144). Although Pangloss holds to his views about life, he seems to agree with Candide’s new view on
He uses this reference to introduce how guys enjoy tinkering. This approach to expressing a point is found to spark interest in the read because when you think of guys you know, or if you are a guy, tinkering is a relatable typical occurrence. Granted that the use of a dramatic example such as this is an incredible leap of faith in regards of offensive writing, but it seems as if this way of thinking resonates in a manor that brings even the most brilliant of scientists on a normal level. The evidence of these national events and its relation to “guyness” is questionable, but Barry reassures the reader by stating “ Every statement of fact you will read in this book is either based on actual laboratory tests, or else I made it up” (414). This is an interesting form of support for an argument fact and fiction being used to back up the main point.
Referring to the talents of his generals, Gaozu says, “it was because I was able to make use of all of them that I gained possession of the world” (Watson, 76). Here, Gaozu explains that only by accepting the worth of his peers was he able to succeed in remedying the world’s immoralities. With his biography, Sima clearly illustrates Gaozu as a model of how to pull an empire out of an evil era and into one of morality and
“When you durst do it, then you were a man. And to be more than what you were, you would Be so much more the man” (1.7.49-51). This quote is basically Lady Macbeth encouraging Macbeth by saying “You were a great man before and if you were to do this deed, you would be even more than man.” Also, in this quote it is clear that Lady Macbeth considers strong, inflexible action as a quality of manhood. This value, along with lack of remorse and mercy is a characteristic of Lady Macbeth’s character and it is her main attitude towards manhood during the development of the
Rhetorical Analysis of “The Death of Honesty” by William Damon Honesty is one of the most adored, coveted and respected virtue a human being can possess. Honesty may not come naturally or easy to all individuals; however, it is a trait that most individuals take pride in demonstrating through their professional and personal relationships. In William Damon’s article titled, “The Death of Honesty”, sheds light on the current state of honesty within one's personal and professional relations, attempts to convince his audience, the general public, that society is at a tipping point where the absence of honesty is becoming accustomed, assumed, and an expectation in all relations as well as explains the ramifications that could ensue if civilization continues down this path.

Emotion is a powerful substance and a persuasive technique that Damon uses precisely to connect and resonate with the reader.
