He would go about his day and at the end of it, he would mark if he failed to stick to the values of the virtue. He repeated this process with each virtue, completing one course in thirteen weeks. The purpose of the recording is to have a visual representation or reminder that he did not uphold the values of the virtue, subsequently reinforcing the thought that he must try to live by upholding the values of the virtue. Franklin’s decision to master one of the thirteen virtues at a time reveals that he has a well-rounded understanding of human nature and the human tendency to be unable to focus on more than one thing at a time. It implies that humans need to maintain focus on one aspect at a time to come to an understanding of it and to be fluent in the aspect and its values.
He used the benefits of not having deprivation in his past to shape his future by not caring about anyone but himself and possibly the hardship that he faced with the 3 months of jail time he will use to shape himself into a better man. Conclusion Horace’s comparison between your past and your character is very reasonable, whether you have had hardship or you have not had hardship it still shapes your views and how you perceive your goals. Martin Luther King Jr portrays how you can have plenty of hardship in your life but still do great things and make a difference in the world. Brock Turner shows how having an easy life and not having to deal with much can lead to not caring for others and doing only what you want. The divide between the two shows that no matter your hardship or lack of hardship it still shapes your personality
The poem ‘If’ is a list of multifarious attributes the intended listener of the poem should have, to gain the world. This is a metaphor for power and joy. For example, ‘If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you’. The theme of growing up exists throughout the poem as the poem is based around the transition from childhood to adulthood. This poem by Kipling is a recipe to become a good man, not only from society’s perspective but your own as well.
Benjamin Franklin, the author of The Autobiography and Sandra Cisneros, the author of Straw Into Gold: The Metamorphosis of the Everyday both define success and how they achieved it, in their piece of writing. Though they both may seem to have similar views on success, they infact differ greatly. Franklin believes that in order to reach success, one must alter himself through the use of a method, while Cisneros believes that rather than changing himself, one can use his imagination and the small things in life to be successful. Furthermore, Franklin describes achieving success at the moment he starts working towards the goal, whereas Cisneros describes achieving success once she has completed her goals. Franklin believes that he must change
Discovery of such history had a profound impact on Equality such as when he read the word “I”. It is through man’s writing in which Equality came to understand “the blessed thing which (he) had called (his) curse” (98). This writing had such a positive impact on Equality that he decided to “write the first chapter of new history of man” so that it would be eternal (101). It is through his writing, that Prometheus will be remembered not as a number, but as a hero who vanquishes collectivism. His eternal message cautions the reader of the dangers of an irrational society so that someday man will think twice before chaining himself to the word
Leviathan State of nature make men so equal without the government. Hobbes strongly argued that the social unity and having peace inside the civilians are the best achievement by men as he explained in his book, Leviathan. In chapter thirteen of his book, Hobbes created the best original and important about the men with their nature and living in a state of nature. Also, this kind of life drives men to behave well in their societies and to be strong or having more power than others. In general, I will explain the state of nature and chapter thirteen of Hobbes book, and it is the explanation about how the state of nature can be a state of the war, men’s experience in the state of nature, and the examples of the state of the nature in 17 century.
You take me, for instance. I never have to wait in line to see a buyer” (33). Loman is telling his boys that the key to success is being well-liked, which isn’t true for the brothers when they try to apply for a job. This shows how shallow Loman’s vision of the American Dream is and how it can be so much better. Considering all of these views, there is proof that there are a variety of perspectives on the American
Adding on to the fact that Atticus wanted to teach his children to grow up free of prejudice; Atticus gives Scout an important life lesson. As said in the book “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (Lee 85-87) Ultimately Atticus has a lot of passion in his heart to deal with the people he does everyday and be able to stand up to those who don’t agree with his beliefs. A final example of how Atticus is able to show courage through others is through the Cunningham’s. Atticus is able to compromise with Mr.Cunningham and help him out in exchange for something they are able to repay him
Why Millennials Will Save Us All.” Throughout his article, Stein defends millennials and their new way of life against some of the older closedminded generations. Stein does not only give his opinions about the matter, but also presents his case using rhetorical appeals of ethos, logos, and pathos. Joel Stein keeps his reasonings unbiased because he is very aware of what the older generations think and also understands why millennials live the lifestyles they do. Overall, Stein is successful in argument that millennials can be the best new generation of all

Drew’s beard can be interpreted as a sign of manliness being as he hadn’t grown one until college. But instead of changing his entire life due to college, he just eased into adopting the new maturity required of him at CWU (and grew a beard). Drew will probably just continue to gradually change and never truly have a life-changing moment that defines who he is because he’s extremely adaptive and will live like he wants and if he does have a coming of age moment in his future it will only change him for the better. Drew will continue to do great things. Whether it’s playing football or color commentating it, he’ll be amazing in whatever field he chooses because of his athleticism and kind disposition.
In this first assignment, I will try to demonstrate several areas where the trend of hiring greater educated firefighters did affected not only our training division but also the relationship between generations within our composite department. In the last ten years, our department took the approach that hiring educated firefighters from a recognize Fire School Academy would possibly be a better strategies for our small department. I for myself believe in education in the fire service, if not, why would I have registered in this program. In reality, this is where our department started to struggle. First, the minimum requirement to become a volunteer firefighter with our Department is Level 1 under NFPA-1001.
The United States has had very many heros that served as our presient. Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington are all heros and were a very important part of our society. They all did everything they could do to make this world a better place, yet they all had their differences in going about doing it. But i will have to say that the strongest president was Thomas Jefferson. Thomas was one of the smartest men to live and not only was he very smart but he had a desire to constantly learn new things.
Jimmy reached out to people he knew would want to help so they receive recognition. these people would improve his chances of success. Jimmy wanted to build as big a network of supporters as possible. Jimmy Carter’s approach in this case is best represented by the political maxim that it’s better to receive than to give. He never helped the people he reached out to but he knew they would help him.
He has set standards for all people that wish to be successful and do not want to be “average”. Carnegie has opened my eyes to many different ideas and ways to become the best person that I can. Success is now a goal of mine and I am driven to create a life that I do not need a vacation from. Carnegie said it best when he made this statement, “ People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” When I think about this quote it reminds me of another extremely successful man, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He said, “ The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else.
