Flowers for Algernon Essay In the story “Flowers for Algernon”, Charlie undergoes an experiment that triples his IQ of 68 and makes him into a genius. Even though it was temporary, Charlie expressed deep joy over this, and therefore I believe that this was a positive experience for Charlie. First of all, he stated near the start of his regression that he felt glad that he was able to find out so much for science, even if he had to disprove Dr Nemur and Dr Strauss’ theories. Secondly, he pointed out in the beginning that he didn’t care that the intelligence wouldn’t last, and that he just wants to be able to experience it once. Finally, Charlie stated in the end that he was very glad he was able to see things from a smart person’s perspective for once and he was happy that he saw things he never even knew existed.

A friend of mine reminds me of Tom because she always puts other things before her family.

I am penetratingly convinced that, however, the most pivotal aspect of a job will never be the money a person earned. Initially, It is crucial for a people to select his job depend on in which aspect his interest lies.

Many students after the graduation say that probably they were not lucky enough to get good marks, or the evaluators must have marked their papers strictly.
