Perla Villarreal English 2/BAC January 8, 2013 LOTF ESSAY The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Henry David Thoreau once said, “Goodness is the only investment that never fails”. In the novel, Lord of the Flies, William Golding tests this theory. When a group of British boys crash into an island and are left alone without any supervision, they are forced to change to a cruel lifestyle that changes Simon’s and Piggy’s innocence. Golding illustrates Piggy’s and Simon’s goodness to show that when people respect and help others it makes a stable society. To begin Simon helps the Liluns pick fruit because they cannot reach it.
Sad is the image of a son growing up and away from his own father. Much like an apple growing off the branch of its nurturing parent tree; until it has matured enough to break away from its familiar ties. The poem, “A Story” by Li-Young Lee creates a prime example of the melancholic image a father would never want to see. With clever manipulation of allegory, point of view, and syntax, Lee is able to properly convey the complex relationship between the father and son that is experienced as time takes its natural course. Lee’s poem wraps itself around the simple concept of storytelling.
While “The Brown Wasps” which says “ it was the world that has changed” shows a remembrance of place where the author himself and his father planted a tree many years ago. Similarly, everyone in the essay all lost something, including the mouse in his house and the flocks of pigeons. People and animals are act in the similar ways. They lost their field or their precious food. But even though, even these places or something we cherish in the lives gone, we can still memorize them in our hearts that can keep them longer.
Always say, 'I am.' MILLIE: All right... 'I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.' ________________________________ TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louie, do you know why his father didn't punish him? LOUIS: Because George still had the axe in his hand..... ______________________________________ TEACHER: Now, Simon , tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?
So he climbed a sycamore tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.
God takes seven days to create the world how he wants, but on the contrary the creation of the world is done over a period of time in “The World on the Turtle's Back.” The world in Genesis is all good from the beginning instead of being both good and bad like in “The World on the Turtle's Back.” The two men get there by their grandmother who becomes too curious for her own good. She was pregnant with their mother and wanted bark from the sacred tree. In contrast Eve tastes the fruit from a tree that God has forbidden her to eat from, because she was tempted by the devil. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.” (Gen 3:6) In Genesis one may recall Eve had two sons, but by natural birth and by intercourse. “The World on the Turtle's Back” differs in that the two men are born by having arrows placed on their mother's chest.
ORLANDOI remember, Adam, that’s exactly why my father only left me a thousand crowns in his will. And as you know, my father commanded my brother, Oliver, to make sure that I was brought up well—and that’s where my sadness begins. Oliver keeps my brother Jaques away at school, and everyone says he’s doing extremely well there. But he keeps me at home in the country—to be precise, he keeps me stuck at home but doesn’t support me. I ask you, is this any way to treat a gentleman as nobly born as I am, to pen me in like an ox?
He is then made to chew a coca leaf which numbs his mouth and powdered lime from the stick that will activate chemicals in the coca. Not only do the Kogi think this helps you remain healthy, but that it also helps you to think clearer which is something as ‘earth stewards’ is very important to their culture, when they then take the boy into the ‘World House’ for the first time in this place he will not be able to eat or sleep for four days, and he receives the Elders teachings, a man comes and explains to him that he “Mustn’t cut a banana tree because they are like your father or your mother, you have to respect them as much as any person.” “You shouldn’t cut down any tree because they are a living thing and they hurt to.” Their message to us the ‘Younger brothers ‘is very simple, that we need to change our ways, because we are destroying the environment we live in and that ‘we are violating fundamental principles repeatedly and totally. With all of the science we process I cannot disagree with this religious
Kevin Fortney Atticus: Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them. Scout: Just like Boo Radely, we all grew up afraid of him and making up games, but in the end he ended up saving us from Ewell. Atticus: Arthur is a good man scout. He just suffered a rough child hood; we all have obstacles we must overcome. Scout: He would leave us gifts in the knot of a tree, almost like he was trying to reach out to Jem and I. Atticus: Arthur was a child once too; he knows what it was like to grow up in this town as you are now.
A sapling is a young tree; demonstrates strength, nurturing, and flexibility. Strength is the ability to be able to hold on to your wildest dreams. At the age of sixteen, I was told by my father that I wouldn’t make anything of myself. Today, I am now working on my second week at Tusculum. Through the “you can’t make it” and the “you’ll probably end up pregnant,” I’ve found the strength to move past all the negative and unnecessary comments from my father.
