Positive Thinking William Channing once said, “Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.” In the “Diary of Anne Frank”, Anne is going through hiding from german police and meanwhile, is stuck with her family and anothers. While in “”Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, Louise Ogawa is writing about her tough times during the war. They both are able to stay positive which proves that having a positive attitude it the best way to respond to conflict. While some might have trouble staying optimistic and may think that the best way to respond to conflict is to just avoid it, people should keep a positive mindset because it helps people cope more easily during arduous times, it has beneficial impacts on others, and having a positive outlook has many health benefits.
This quote also alludes to her cordial outlook on the disgusting wrongdoing she is being burdened with. It is also a reminder of the scorching power of optimism and alacrity in dark times. This is Anne's personal sanctuary free from horrendous arguments and outright infuriating injustices. Anne Frank, without a substantial physical sanctuary, is relying on this quote to inspire herself and those around her to be happy and therefore spread happiness to their peers. Though cataclysmic challenges befall her, Anne keeps the words, "Whoever is happy will make others happy too," close to her heart in times of darkness and confusion so she may never know the dreadful day when she deliberately abates someone she truly loves and cares for the wellbeing of.
When Anne first sees the small dull, damp place they will be staying in, she calls it “grand”. Her positivity is what keeps her spirits high. She even wishes to be in the Secret Annex as it keeps her and her family safe rather than the dangerous, streets below. Anne attempts to make the Annex appear like home. “I try to decorate the walls… making it seem like home, just like in Frankfurt” (Frank 215).

She began at the Vermeer house, afraid to speak; Griet’s desire for kinship with Johannes, however, pressured her into altering a still life and ultimately gave her courage. “‘There needs to be some disorder in the scene, to contrast with her tranquility,”’ Griet says, to which Vermeer replies, ‘“I had not thought I would learn something from a maid,”’ (pgs. 135 - 136) Griet 's decision to rearrange the composition of the piece shows how her confidence has improved; she was able to be assertive and make the change, as well as to defend her decision when confronted by Vermeer. Johannes shows humbleness in his response to Griet; admitting he learned from her and he has some degree of respect for her artistic judgment. However, in using the word “maid” he emphasizes how the hierarchy still stands even though she has managed to prove herself to him.
Koly the clothes you washed are still dirty! I did the best I could, thankful for an bed to sleep on and food to put in my mouth.” From this quote, we could tell that Sass wants Koly to do more chores over again and Koly doesn’t mind but is not disobeying Sass because she has everything in the house that she needs so she is happy. It can be inferred that Sass is more pressuring and wants to take advantage of what Koly does and Koly doesn’t mind but doesn’t want to disobey Sass because she provides Koly with everything that she needs. On the other hand, “I

Many examples prove the tight friendship between the main characters. George says if he did not have to take care of Lennie, maybe he could have a girl and life would be so much easier. Things must not be so bad if he has stayed with him for so long. Also, working on a ranch can be lonely but George and Lennie have each to avoid that feeling. Even, Lennie tries to show George that he can do things for him and not be a burden; he offers to give George his ketchup, if they had any, hypothetically.
The themes from The Giver that I will be covering are the treatment of Birthmothers, the absence of free-will, and and the importance of love. The Giver is an award-winning book by Lois Lowry. This book is about a “perfect community” where you are given your job, your spouse, and your children in hopes that this community would be perfect and peaceful. Some jobs are considered very important and therefore you are honored. There are also jobs that are considered “not honorable” like Birthmothers.
