Mahatma Gandhi is a world known leader that inspires people every day with his story of fighting for freedom. He once made this claim about leadership, “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.” This quote relates a lot to the character of Bernard in Ender’s Game. Bernard leads by using his body size in order to make the other kids feel small and powerless, but his method doesn’t exactly work out. The science fiction novel, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is about effective and ineffective leadership and reveals that a person can’t be placed in a position of leadership, true leadership must be earned over time. According to Card, being a leader does not involve bullying for power.
E.B White has acknowledged that he will not live forever and the end is near. Throughout his essay, White uses a lot of duality. He reflects back to his past and compares it to the present he is in. During the first morning back at the lake, he “began to sustain the illusion that [his son] was [him], and therefore, by simple transposition, that [he] was [his] father” (White 432).

A person’s culture and worldview are things that shape who they are and how they act. With this in mind what is culture and worldview? Kraft defines culture as “a people’s way of life, their design for living, their way of coping with their biological, physical and social environment” (Kraft 401).

Know that culture and worldview are always included in one another; worldview is “the deepest level of presuppositions upon which people base their lives” (Kraft 401).

The related text I have chosen was the movie, Bend It Like Beckham by Gurinda Chadha, in this movie it depicts on the challenges between Jessie’s cultural background compared to Jules and when both girls finally find something they belong to. Throughout the movie, the traditional customs that Jessie and her family celebrated showed that they belonged to an Indian descent. Such as the time it was Jessie’s sister, Pinky’s wedding they all wore saris. However in Jules family they have an average typical English background.
He almost died last spring and I realized how much he continues to influence people, especially me. He taught me to have dreams and set goals. “If people don’t laugh at your dreams, they aren’t big enough, son.” But he also emphasized planning! “No one plans to fail, but if you fail to plan you will fail.” Since I was about 13 I had a desire to become a teacher and coach, but didn’t develop a plan until high school. I remember some of my friends laughing at me when I said
Eton and I joked about completing the challenge in less than thirty minutes. Eton was a cabin mate, but that’s not why I chose him to do this challenge with me. No, Eton was an accomplished paddler; likely, a bit more accomplished than me. I was determined not to let him down. The Villison was a long-standing tradition at Camp Ahmek.
Her position as the daughter of immigrants and as an American wife and mother curiously alienates her from both Indian culture and her own family.While on a vacation in India with her husband and children, Mina attempts to come to terms with her unhappiness byconfessing her anxiety to the tour guide her husband has hired. Mina’s problem -- her inability to be understood by Mr. Kapasi -- stems out of herfailure to translate the social, political, and historical expectations he has of her because of her appearance and name, which in his eyes mark her as Indian. She shows little interest in the country of her parents’ birth, which passes her by as she touches up her nail polish in the car, scolding her daughter, “Leave me alone,” when she asks to have her nails painted, too
