In fact, National Read Across America Day is celebrated on Geisel’s birthday because of the delightful stories he has created for the children around the world. His books remain timeless, for they bring so much joy to early readers (Porter). The boringness of regular children’s books has been demolished by Dr.Seuss through his profound and clever verses (Famous Authors). He is so widely known and commemorated that he is one of the few writers to have a public statue of himself with his book characters surrounding him (Porter). His work has been transformed into motion pictures to accurately display the stories to newer generations, and has also been collaborated with Universal Studios in Florida to create a theme park dedicated to Dr.Seuss himself.

The Steve Jobs commencement speech was a speech that was given by the former Apple Inc. CEO to Stanford University during the 114th commencement on 12th June 2005. The speech Steve Jobs gave Stanford University is a very effective speech, because of his use of rhetorical devices. Jobs especially use his background and childhood to play upon his rhetorical approach. In Steve Jobs, he tells several stories about love, detection, death, loss. The main part of the Speech is how Steve Jobs encourages the students to pursue their dreams, and do what makes them happy, even if it all doesn’t go after the plan.
For example, "As a college student, I wrote my senior thesis on the impact of television on the balance of power among the three branches of government ... the growing importance of visual rhetoric and body language over logic and reason.” (Gore 5) This quote is necessary because it give the readers a little background of the full extent of his research and experience on the topic, leading to make his claim sound.

Besides, he and other scholars had undergone through different experiences in the hands of the white man. For instance, he mentions the idea of the “great mystery” at the chapel when he was together with other scholars.
The most important legal system that influenced the American legal system in my opinion is Hammurabi’s code. So what exactly is Hammurabi’s code? Hammurabi’s code is an extremely useful source for discussions of Mesopotamian government and society is the Babylonian document Hammurabi’s Code (approximately 1780 BCE). One of the most influential codifications of law in ancient history, the text provides people with a concrete example of the expanding influence of centralized government on the personal and professional lives of the general population. It also gives people a clear sense of the ways ancient Babylonians invested godly authority in their worldly
In his commencement speech at Kenyon College in 2005, David Foster Wallace was tasked with the responsibility of imparting some wisdom onto the graduating class. Wallace’s message to a room of full soon-to-be college graduates at the precipice of the of their impending true adulthood, he offers them a message that cuts through the mess and concisely delivers a message that many would ironically overlook, which is for the students to realize that at times, imperative life lessons are not only the ones that they cannot conceive or believe, but the ones that are obvious but hard to acknowledge let alone discuss. The lesson in this is that no matter how instinctive that cynicism is, it is imperative that people must try to more honest and open
The first key point that the author uses is the importance college. " Factory life has shown me what my future might have been like had I never gone to college in the first place." ( Braaksma 2 ). He is telling us about how his life would be like if he did not go to college.

Starting from February 4th, 1801, when he was sworn in, Marshall’s opinion played a climatic role in high profile cases. In the Marbury vs. Madison case, he initiated the process of judicial review.
On the 12th of January in 1780, Abigail Adams writes a letter to her son John Quincy Adams. The purpose of this letter is to give advice to her child who is traveling abroad with his father. This beautifully crafted advice provides an intellectual sense to all the readers. Adams models another author to compare things to types of people to provide a picture to her son of what kind of man she wants him to be. In her letter she states,
Members of the Search Committee: As a member of the Harvard Law School Class of 1981, I recommend that Professor David Wilkins '80 be named to replace Martha Minow as HLS Dean. I have known David since we were both students at HLS. Back then, I was struck by his gregarious and effervescent personality; he was a real "people" person. Now, almost four decades later, I am compelled to recommend David as Dean precisely because he is such a people person, a quality that motivates him to identify issues and take action that an ordinary person would not, and which makes him uniquely qualified to lead the Law School. For a number of years, I practiced higher education law, and defended state universities in tenure disputes.
The authors of Inherit the Wind, Robert E. Lee and Jerome Lawrence, want their audience to consider the theme of The Importance Of Having Multiple Perspectives, which they show through their characters’ interactions with others. Drummond: “Do you ever think about things that you do think about? (There is some laughter. But it is dampened by the knowledge and awareness throughout the courtroom, that the trap is about to be sprung.) Isn 't it possible that first day was twenty five hours long?
From an early age I have always had an interest in the legal system, as a child of divorcees the legal system has always had an impact on my life. I have always dreamed about being a family lawyer and have hoped that through hard work and dedication I could make my dream a reality; enter law school, successfully complete the bar exam and utilize my knowledge of the law to help those who may otherwise be left in the cold by the legal system. As I have grown older I have a new understanding of the realities of just how difficult it will be to make my dreams a reality. When writing this application, I had difficulty figuring out what I can say that will set me apart from other candidates. I almost feel as though everything that I will say has been said before and there are most likely some situations that sound more sympathetic than my own.
It all started in the 5th century with the Romans, but didn’t begin to become prevalent until in the early 1600s in Europe. Adriaen van der Donck was one of the first civil rights lawyers of his time. Even though Adriaen was the first civil rights lawyer, Thurgood Marshall is considered one of the most famous advocates when he became a U.S. Supreme court justice to make things fair for the minorities who have been discriminated against. Civil rights lawyers have been prevalent for so many years because of the laws changing against discrimination. From the 17th century, to the 1960s and up until now civil rights lawyers have helped out a lot of people who haven’t been treated equally, and in the future things will be a lot better when it comes to people and
