“My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to be feared than loved”. A ruler who has relied most of his energy towards forming friendships and confiding in other men 's promises, and neglected to prepare other defences, will be ruined. A friendship that is acquired through monetary values, and not through greatness, are within themselves unreliable when they are needed. When it comes to the military approach, it is best not to consider the harshness because armies are not kept united and prepared for action unless their leader is harsh. In these
Milos Kulina Elie’s faith towards God changes a lot as the story goes on. In the beginning of the work, his faith in God is complete. In chapter one when asked why he prays to God, he says, “Why did I pray?... Why did I live? Why did I breathe?” His belief in God is great, and he cannot imagine living without faith in his divine power.
In this day and age, even if war is at a decline, individuals are what make it not possible. Unless every person in the world wishes goodwill of his parallel man and to seek to support and help him could world peace be existent. Anger, greed, and ignorance would overcome that pledge to peace and turn it into harsh disaster and takeover good intentions. Humans are very different in how they contemplate and feel. Getting billions of people to be harmonious in thought philosophy something the mind cannot fathom.
How do you be good? Kindness, generosity, and honesty are three of the most important aspects in being a good person, and if you want to be a good person, having these three traits are a great place to start. If you’re a good person, you know you try to stay positive, even in bad situations. It is always best to spread your goodness and positivity to others as well, because it can rub off on others, even if it’s just as simple as a smile. In addition, being a good person can make you happier and feel better about yourself, especially if you are helping others.
This is a more sound argument in the context of continuity since these “sorts of attributes that generally change very slowly over time” (Litch 69). However, it can be harder to differentiate between individuals using this argument since people are more likely to share the same value system for instance than the exact same memories. Nevertheless, with his use of strong characterization and exploration of ethics in Hot Fuzz, Wright certainly argues that this is still a viable argument for the continuity of
Micheal S. Kimmel clearly argues about homophobia, in our lives today. Kimmel showed how this world thinks and judges in the beginning of man kind, he has mentioned his experience and how it still continues on today. The author is against the fact that men are constantly worried on how they are seen by others, men try to be as manly as possible in comparison to those around them. Men get alarmed in regards to what they wear, eat, and how they walk. Homophobia is the fear of being looked at as being gay or in our words feminine.
Those on the receiving end, however, are the ones who benefit in the end, as they become aware of one’s true personality and realize that there is more possibility outside of the abuse. They are pushed away to seek different, better things, separated from the causes of their grief. In these cases, it would be inaccurate to claim that cruelty is little more than unjust treatment. Cruelty is not a display of power—it is the abuse of it; the ugly offspring of fear and weakness, spurred by fits of anger and doubt; a revealer of the truly weak and liberator of the wrongly
Julio rather be himself even though others do not like them. Being yourself is the most important thing. All in all, repetition is the main transition used in Polanco’s poem. These quotes show, how if you do or say something just because someone told you to do, does not make you feel free. Being yourself is better even though people don’t like you.
Proven that Optimists handle much better in tight situations where not giving up and persistence are a must have while pessimists look for things to go wrong and that keeps them from reaching, or even noticing their goal. If you can’t think about the positive and look for the good things in life then things will be hard and easier to give up on. Perseverance means that you move on and try to achieve success, despite the things that go wrong or become difficult. This is exactly what William did when everyone
Few people are okay with the fact that they are mediocre. Everyone strives to be better. So in saying that society wants you to be mediocre, Baldwin is implying that he does not want you to be mediocre; he wants you to be what you want to be, aligning your views with his, providing a common enemy to root
