Sometimes, it’s better not to crave for the better, ‘cause it’s a lot better when you consider what you have as the best. I know there are things in life which we know are not really meant for us. Or, there are also things in life which we must think: it’ll soon be ours, on the right time. Whatever it is, I know, this journey of Miss Leny is not a failure, nor a mistake. It is because, through her outstanding efforts, in teaching and instilling in us all about Asia, and most of all, about certain fundamentals in life, it made us become who we are right now, as her students.
Leonard’s gift of hope combined with his years of disablement made him a better, more empathetic person. In recognizing that this feeling was wonderful, and the moments spent outside of the wall of hopelessness that dominated a majority of his life would return, Leonard decided to make the best of things out of appreciation for this feeling. He as a person was stronger, and he was more aware that he could make a difference. Therefore, in contrast to his inability to help the world overcome the disease that impacted him so significantly that would have occurred if he had remained hopeless, Leonard developed a stronger mindset in that he believed that in the future, it is possible that his disease could be cured, that through his helping in research, he could be a person who gave both himself more,
In reading David McCullough’s speech entitled “The Love of Learning” I found so many passages that stood out to me or that I found impressive. I found his talk as a whole to be just simple, but yet informative, and inspiring to any graduation class that is about to embark on life’s many journeys. But the one passage that I found particularly impressive and inspiring was at the very end. In this passage we read: “Go out and get the best jobs you can and go to work with spirit. Don’t get discouraged.
With this respect comes a stronger conscience as well as greater morals. Diving deep into ideas on how to earn the idea of respect really emphasized the solution to the whole problem association with young adults and the increase in problems with them. Metaphors can be a great way to simplify a complicated subject to enable a wider variety of audiences to understand it more thoroughly, which essentially leads to greater enjoyment of the reading. A great example of using a metaphor to allow the reader to understand better is when the author states “It is an island apart, striving to maintain itself in a sea of change.” (pg 391). This is referring to how the household is not connected with the outer world and is therefore isolated from any interactions.

many people are still happy with how it functions and has created social order. This is because it has withstood the test of time and has proved to be a fair system of a culture’s shared values, customs, and tradtions. Perhaps long ago, when the system was beginning, it may have been far more unfair because the laws would have been created by only the powerful upper class with little or no critique. But now, proven throughout its course of history because of adjustments to unfair laws, one can have confidence in the laws that govern them. However, Christie feels as though individuals particularly involved in conflicts, are still restrained of their rights by those in power.
He saw what his strengths and weaknesses were, and at first thought that if he were to improve his strengths even more, that maybe next time he would get the promotion. The authors explain that “doing more of what you already do well yields only incremental improvement. To get appreciably better at it, you have to work on complementary skills.” (p85) In other words, it is more beneficial to focus on a skill or skills that complement the ones that you are already good at. In order to help the reader better understand this idea, the authors give a few examples. The main idea behind the examples given is that just like in sports, cross-training, which is described as “the combination of two activities (which) produces an improvement… substantially greater than either one can produce on its own.” (p86) also known as an interaction effect.

Tian Kou Kou 1 Professor Puma Christopher E110 24 October 2012 Towards to Two Classic Literature Articles When we are talking about dreams, they are usually something we do not have or something we love to do all the time. Nowadays most people’s dream is money or something very realistic, there is nothing wrong because we want a better life. So the material world is becoming more and more plentiful, and it makes people’s spiritual world more and more lacking. When we look at the person who has a dream not about materials, they often has experience something really impressive. And one of the most impressive things would be the miserable memories.
Success has more equal vision and less prejudice than the positive thinking theory promoted by some people. I don’t have to try to change my thinking about myself. “The important thing is to love your negativities, not to judge them, and to learn to use them to raise you up” (C.-N. Chu, Thick Face-Black Heart). The only thing I should do is free myself from the trap that says, “Change comes before success.” If I think I will win, there are chances I can. If I think I will lose, I positively will.
