To me this is absolutely true. Why should we spend our time fearing the inevitable? We are given only a few short years to experience the world, friendships, loves, and losses. Even the bad experiences teach us to appreciate the good ones. This doesn’t mean we should all go out and be terrible people just so we will appreciate our good experiences, but rather that we should learn from our mistakes.
Phineas, as shown in the passage, remains unfazed by the war and continues to reflect his innocence. Gene’s diction throughout his narration helps to reveal Finny’s personality, but also hints to the major theme of war. For example, Gene recalls,”…I bent cheerfully over to help him up,” this shows how despite the fact that Finny had turned on Gene and later on everyone, Gene still happily helped Finny up. This reflects his personality because it is nearly impossible to become angry at Phineas, his constant fun-loving attitude, rubs off on others. Finny’s personality is also reflected in Gene’s diction when Gene says how Finny had a “steadily widening grin,” when he “was driven down beneath a blizzard of snowballs.” This exemplifies Phineas’ personality because he was at his happiest when the tables were turned against him and there would be no chance of any distinct winners or losers.
James 1:19 (KJV) says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.” Taking the correct actions when listening will allow me to mend broken relationship due to lack of communication or listening skills. A good course of action to improving communication and listening skills will help in my future career in the human service
For starters, MLK communicates his respect for the Clergymen right from the beginning of the letter when he remarks “ Seldom do I pause to answer criticism of my work and ideas… But since I feel that you are men of genuine good will and that your criticisms are sincerely set forth” MLK maintains this diplomatic tone throughout the most of the letter with slight changes to a more bitter and sarcastic tone in the middle of the letter evidenced by his long cumulative sentences. However, in the end MLK defaults back to his civil and respectful tone when he states “If I have said anything in this letter that overstates the truth and indicates an unreasonable impatience, I beg you to forgive me.” This well mannered tone is crucial to achieving any tangible policy change while maintaining a non-violent doctrine. However MLK’s respect doesn’t prevent him from utilising many Biblical allusions -- in a way, using the Church’s weapon against them-- to express his disagreement with the Church’s claims. One of the clearest examples of this is appears in paragraph 3 where MLK parallels the supposed effects of the his protest to those of Jesus’ actions by inquiring “Isn’t this like condemning Jesus because his unique God-
No matter what color, race, sex, what set they’re from, how they were raised, anything. He loves everyone. To prove this, “if you were my son, I’d be the proudest man alive” shows that he shows Looney a tremendous amount of love. Looney has just pulled G aside to show him his report card of “straight A’s” which turned out to be a little off but Father Greg decides to support Looney and show compassion because he is proud of him regardless. Looney actually only got one A grade but didn’t receive any bad marks and G is very proud of him for this.
Ruthie Eldridge 04.27.2012 English- Period 8 Essay: C A man’s precious treasure is his pride and dignity. Born upon this cold world, full of rejection and disappointment, it is all that he has to hold on to. There was once a saying that, it doesn’t matter if you lose the fight, as long as you didn’t back down to the battle. Many people are judgmental on whether you lose, but they don’t analyze the road you took to earn your respect, and your determination to stand strong, even when others expect you to fall. Therefore, standing up for what you believe in will always be more acceptable than selling out.
I listened to what he had to say and gave my input. We addressed the group about the situation at hand and continued with our assignment. This team member agreed that he did not contribute enough to each assignment therefore he believed he did not deserve the same grade as the other team members. I believe that we did an amazing job handling this situation, we came together and always had a plan b to complete our assignments. Bringing me to the point that, “Groups work best when they have identified a clear, elevating goal that unites their problem-solving effort” (Beebe, 2013, p. 253).
This is my explanation or analysis of Ascher’s thesis taken from “Understanding ‘The Box Man’” without any attribution or sourcing.] The Box Man‘s acceptance of his loneliness and reliance on the solace that comes from looking within and outward through the imagination shows a way of dealing with this estrangement. This “life of the mind” can be achieved by living a simple and creative life. She urges us to simplify our lives and leave “pasture enough for imagination” and also to be free from clutter. [This is one of the best summaries of what the essay is actually about any student ever wrote.]
I wish that there was more detail surrounding Dibs’ behavioral issues. That being said, all in all I really enjoyed it, some parts more than others. My favorite part was actually the letter that Dib himself wrote as a letter of protest against the recent dismissal of one of his classmates. Dibs’, even having gone through so much turmoil in his past, has grown up to be a charismatic, compassionate, sensitive, leader. In his letter, Dibs’ expresses his protest to the head of the school by arguing that his classmate was not trying to cheat by copying off of him, but that he was trying to look at Dibs’ paper to make sure that he had the correct date down and as Dib’s argues, “He said he was verifying a date – an important date in history – and since accuracy is of date is essential to establish its very existence, then it should indeed, be verified” (Axline, 1964, p. 217).
So I use to think that since he has such dislike about everything, apathy should be the correct answer. * The speaker’s tone is paragraph 1-3 can best be described as: “E. candid and reflective” * The reason why “E. candid and reflective” is because that he is really candid throughout the essay, he said what is real, not to cover some stuff up or fake anything. He is honest of what he is saying.
