She states, "When a mind is raised and animated by scenes that engage the heart, then those qualities, which would otherwise lay dormant, wake into life and form the character of the hero and the statesmen." By this Adams is implying that when something touches your heart, qualities that you have, but don’t normally show, will rise up and make you a different person. She also talks about the things she believes a good man should have. Some of these things are honor, fortitude, and justice. These words dictate the qualities she has been talking about that she hopes her son will catch on to on this excursion.
In this passage Zinsser is implying that people should not act as if failing at one goal marks the end of their success. But instead, use that their failure to learn what they did wrong, make changes to fix it, and catapult them to their success.

Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." This quote has been highly debated by those who believe that new experiances are vital to one 's development, and by those who belive that new experiances hinder one 's life. Trying to do something beyond what one have already mastered helps one grow because it makes one push himself, because it helps one gain lifelong experiances and lessons, and because it can bring failure into one 's life. Some may argue that trying new things does not help one grow because it intimidates and scares one from attempting anything new. While new experiances can be terrifying, one may grow by conquering that initial fear of
He could not return to his old ways and teach about justice, goodness, institutions and laws are of highest value to people because he would appear to be a hypocrite. Therefore he would not be fulfilling Gods commands because he could no longer teach. Socrates argument about the laws not having an effect because he broke them is a very valid point. Many people would learn about his decisions, especially the young, and possibly follow his example. The State would be punished by not having control over its citizens.
People throughout history, and present, live in fear of judgment. They believe that their self-worth lies in the hands of other people. The fear of judgement restricts them from reaching their full capacity and potential. It molds them into what their discouraging peers want them to be. Theodore Roosevelt stressed the importance of not concerning himself of what others thought of his choices.
A true leader leads from the heart and does whatever it takes to inspire the teachers and teach the students. Often times this could mean listening for and observing the needs of those around them and finding resources of solutions as opposed to working towards what the leader thinks is best.
