In life there are setbacks and low points that a person has no power to control. The author reiterates that the setbacks never last for ever and that people need a positive attitude to overcome them. In life we all experience an abundance of valleys and peaks, however having the proper tools and right mindset is what enables people to endure the troubles in life until the time for relief arrives. I was simply amazed at how much I learn about myself in reading this book. Peaks and Valleys enlightened and motivated me to work on the things that need correcting in my life to reach my peak.
So after another year of skiing, I finally persuaded my parents into letting me snowboard, but I didn’t know it yet. One night my dad came home from work with a huge box, I figured it was something for the house, so I didn’t think anything of it. Then he opened the box and out came a snowboard along with a seasons pass to a local mountain. The first time I went I took a day long lesson and it seemed like the longest day of my life. When you’re practicing on a small hill and you can only look up at the huge side of a mountain, all you want to do is go all the way up.
PURPOSE AND AUDIENCE 1. Camus makes evident his belief that human effort and values remain important in a meaningless world through his admiration of Sisyphus. Camus writes, “At each of those moments when he leaves the heights and gradually sinks toward the lairs of the gods, he is superior to his fate. He is stronger than his rock.” Camus acknowledges that Sisyphus is strong not because he can push an enormous boulder up a hill for eternity, but because he walks back down the hill to push it up again. He does not resign.
This dark reality leaves the reader with a motivation to make the most of life as we encounter it. Herrick, with his avid fascination of ancient philosophies, developed an appreciation of life and wrote to motivate readers to live life to its fullest. No matter what we achieve in life, no matter how great we become, we are all destined to die. In the end, what we achieved matters little; the quality of life should not be measured in the successes but rather in the moments that we

When the plows were slowly dispatched they did not clear the streets efficiently. Some roads were not cleared for four days. The mayor did not proclaim a snow emergency. State Senator Carl Kruger called the response a "Colossal Failure.” If a simple snowstorm can amplify the dreadful parking conditions New Yorkers face every day, imagine a blizzard. The massive amount of snow that blocked the streets produced the worst parking conditions possible.
These two stories, although very different content, have the same frame. Both heroes, although brave and heroic in their own ways, must rely on others in order to succeed. “Booze”, by Pinckney Benedict is a perfect example of a basic quest myth. While this story does not contain the glory, and the heroism as Beowulf, the protagonist carries out the responsibilities of a quest myth hero. The protagonist must find the courage to vanquish a beast that has burdened him since he was a young boy.
So I started going back to school, and graduated High School with a 3.6 GPA because I knew I could do and be anything in this world, because I had my Guardian Angel looking over me from Heaven. When I first started at Sinclair, I was weary at first. I didn’t really know what to expect, so I went to his Grave site and talked about not being sure if I wanted all the stress of school just to be a Police Officer. And I felt a warm touch on my shoulder, and I truly realized that he wouldn’t be upset if I didn’t do this. His favorite thing to say was “fuck a duck!” (Long story short, I should say).
