A leader is someone you can look up to, listen to, and trust to be fair. “When challenged, they don’t give in too easily, because they know their ideas, opinions, and strategies are well-informed and the result of much hard work” (Economy). In William Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies, Ralph is presented as the voted leader of the stranded boys who survived their plane crash arrival. Ralph competes against Jack, the antagonist, for his elected position. Throughout the novel, Ralph displays traits of his ability to assess, prioritize, and lead in a selfless manner.

The standards of how to live respectably in America are introduced to the nineteenth century public in the raggs-to-riches story of Ragged Dick by Horatio Alger. The themes of hard work, honesty, and courage, are shown as tools, in the various events of Dick’s life as a bootblack, on the streets of New York, that lead to his success in becoming a respectable middle-class citizen. These themes are intended to encourage young boys of the time to do the same, and grow to become respectable members of society. Algers way of reaching young boys was to first publish Ragged Dick not as a novel, but as a twelve part series found in the magazine, The Student and Schoolmate. As found in the magazine series, as well as the novel, Ragged Dick lead an eventful life with many glorified events, that often came about due to incredible strokes of luck.
Admirability is a quality that many strive to acquire, yet, most fail to achieve. Admirability is the ability to be admired or respected by others, even if they don’t necessarily agree with one’s point of view. In the classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, a loving father named Atticus, earns respect from his children, Jem and Scout, and almost his entire community. Wisdom, compassion, and responsibility are just a few things that make Atticus an easily likable character. To begin with, Atticus gives great words of wisdom to Jem and Scout.
My Management philosophy statement is the same as from the beginning of the class, which was all managers have the responsibility to make decisions to oversee an entire company. Especially, the board of directors defines the policy which is carried out by the chief executive officer of the CEO. Management still means organization, responsibility, and leading a group or organization to great success no matter what the cost. A leader is also communicating with others and setting goals for that company or organization. That has not changed for me at all.
New Haven: A City Divided The life of being in a big city such as New York, Los Anglos or even New Haven has always fascinated me when I was a kid. I grew up in the small towns of Westerly, Rhode Island and Norwich here Connecticut. These two towns were small enough that they weren’t the sprawls of a city but large enough that they showed promise of being points of industrial interest at one time. Since in the horizon in some parts of the town you could see the big smoke chimneys of some factories that use to puff out black clouds of smoke. That have long since been snuffed out by the times and their brick bodies crumpled as the corporation that at one time since employed there moved on with the times.
Nietzsche once said, “In the end one loves one’s desire, not the thing desired.” It is in my opinion that both Dexter Green and Judy Jones become excellent illustrations of this as they were consumed by something, her by ideals and him by ambition, that ultimately it robbed them of true joy. Throughout his life, Dexter Green had the belief that his happiness was something he could obtain by becoming wealthy. His motivation for these thoughts first started through the various encounters he had with the wealthy while caddying for upper-class gentlemen in his youth. While Dexter himself did come from a middle class background, his father owned a grocery store, his
Many heroes are brutal in order to show their manliness or strength. Bilbo was strong because of his good heart and mind. He showed his kindness through his generosity, his level head, and his loyalty. Many would believe Bilbo agreed to the quest because of the treasure he knew he would receive. He did indeed earn the treasure, but out of the goodness of his heart, Bilbo heroically gave up all of it and shared with the people in need (44).
In Go Set a Watchman, Atticus’s character is developed through descriptions of his character. “Integrity, humor, and patience were the three words for Atticus Finch. There was also a phrase for him: pick at random any citizen in Maycomb County and its environs, ask him what he thought of Atticus Finch, and the answer would most likely be, “I never had a better friend.” (Lee 114). In this quote, Jean Louise is describing what the town of Maycomb thinks of her father. “Jean Louise then discovers that her father, Atticus, her hero and as close to a perfectly honorable man as she can imagine-"Integrity, humor, and patience were the three words for Atticus Finch"-has joined one of the marginally respectable Citizens ' Councils, a kind of less covert version of the Klan” (Gopnik).
