That returning to nature could never be possible once we’ve been changed from it so. It is in our wiring to seek pleasure, and instincts take over even for the most civilized of people. But not wired into us, not pounded into our brains, but often found, is the need for personal satisfaction. Self-actualization, hope to better ourselves and those around us to some extent. To share in life with those we love, or find someone we hope to love.
I think he didn’t let go because he still could see the hope in her eyes and hear the hope in her voice that she thought he would get better.. Even thou they want to go they still don’t want their love ones to suffer. We never want to let go of our love ones because it hurts. We have to do what is best for them and not us. We have to realize that they are the ones in pain and that they are just prolonging what they know is going to happen.
Instead, we need to “make the air” in our lungs our “livelihood” which implies that we need to do something that matters to us, not anyone else, and it needs to be something that we will be truly proud of. This quote also suggests that we should not do anything to please others if we are not enjoying it ourselves; we should do something that makes us happy. The poet also wants the reader to notice the little things that make our lives great like the nature, by using the words like “sky”, “birds” and “sand”. This suggests that when our tasks become plenty, we should stop, “breathe”, and take a break; for not doing so causes us to become stressed and prohibits us from doing our
We live in a world where we expect people to assist us in our time of need although we refuse to help those who truly need our assistance. Instead of making excuses, pointing fingers and placing blame on those less fortunate for their short comings ,we should learnt to embrace others and uplift them . At the end of it all giving to others in need is the only moral and ethical thing we can choose
He means that if the venture needs you to be anyone else but yourself, it will lead to no good. This reveals to me that Thoreau believes strongly in the individual, being yourself, and seeking your own path. This quote is also applicable to modern life because many ventures nowadays require you to conform for some purpose. The second aphorism I remembered is “Our life is frittered away by detail...Simplicity, simplicity.” Thoreau means that our focus and attention to detail now in society and culture do nothing but to waste our lives away needlessly. He believes simplicity is the better choice.
CHAPTER ONE In chapter one, Siddhartha learned that the love of his family would not always be enough to satisfy him. In order for him to lead a fulfilling life, he must venture out on his own and discover what really makes him happy, and what his life’s purpose is. In my life, I’ve learned that if your heart tells you that something you’re doing is morally wrong, do not do it by any means. I’ve been in way too many situations where I’ve regretted not listening to what my heart had to tell me. If you feel that something you’re doing could possibly be wrong, it is best to stop what you’re doing a really think about your choices CHAPTER TWO In chapter two, Siddhartha learned the ways of the Samanas, which is the group he chose to follow.
A lot of people are just trying to get by life without ever stopping and thinking about how their actions are going to affect us now and later, they just go by life trying to get to the end without trying to make a change or impact in our world. Everyone should be here to do that. America does have it's good thoughts though, they have good means for the change that they want to do, but it's all talk, no action. We can't expect something to get done when all we do is talk about it, we have to actually get up and do something about the problems and the changes we think are here and should happen. I'm sure we could be an even greater nation, where people do care about what they do, and they think about everything they are going to do before even doing it..
I realize that not everyone will be your best friend, but if I spend time obsessing over it and begin to hate them, it will just bring down my own life. Although if I love them, or like them I will go on not worrying about all the hate and live happier. I am trying to incorporate some of the life lessons from each of the three books into my own life, so I can allow myself more personal fulfillments and cease the opportunity at an unbelievable life. Feeling fulfillment in life can allow someone to feel happy and realize what they have been working hard for will come in the
Week 5 Individual Assignment Jose Luis Alamilla BHS/311 July 11, 2012 Peter Petsas Week 5 Individual Assignment The model of helping I have developed from my past personal experiences is to help those who really are in need. Not those who pretend they are in need, but are showing no effort to improve their situation. I am talking about people who are actually trying to change their life by any means necessary. The individuals who have finally realized they have hit their own personal rock bottom and are ready to do let go of their turbulent past. Too many people want to change without having to give up their network of negative influential acquaintances or are afraid of being ridiculed by their former drug addicted peers for being sober.
A person should liver their life the best that they can, and help out who they can, and to not waste their life. They should have made self morals and guide lines in their life, and they should not put people down and not being depressed and see life as a horrible. Like the Stage Manager said in Act II, “You’ve got to have life to love life, and love life to have life.” So a person should not look at life as a cup half empty, but the opposite, the cup half full and take life in and love it. Some people don’t enjoy a life because of some accident or an uncontrolled even, so if you don’t do anything with your life, that is a waste of life that has been given to you. A person should live life to the fullest and love every minute of it because each day could be your last
