Many of Newton 's creative ideas and inventions he brought to the world are still used today. For example, in 1666, Newton came up with the Theories of Gravity. A few years after developing The Universal Law of Gravitation, he created the three Laws of Motion.
Over and over again Youqing is let down because he allowed himself to hope for greatness; with sparrowcide, land reforms, and peoples communes, the Chinese peasantry hoped that they would be helped, because it is human nature. However, throughout Youqing’s youth the author uses a skeptical tone when describing the new policies enacted by the CCP, such as the peoples communes. At this point, Youqing’s family had been self-sufficient for years, and “naturally, Jiazhen was reluctant to see our five mu of land be returned,” and Fugui is even more reluctant to hand over all of their pots but he “figured there was no real way out,” (Yu 101). This use of language implies the authors disappointment in the rise of communism, and implies the negative effect it will have on the

Since he was born in an impoverished country, his drive for success in America was motivated by being a good example for his country.

Remembering how long and uncertain our journey has been, from leaving our hometown and family sixteen years ago, to obtaining green cards, to years spent saving enough money to afford citizenship, I realize all that my parents have sacrificed to create a promising life for me. Thus, I have decided to never let past obstacles prevent me from creating a successful future. Reflecting on the reasons as to why my family moved half way across the world—the high crime rate, insufficient job openings, and no real opportunities for improvement, allows me to realize that attending a college in the United States is the key to making those dreams a reality—dreams of safety, opportunity, and success. Being a first-generation college student means that I have the opportunity to make my parents proud, honor their sacrifices, and give back to the country that has given me a new identity and allowed me the opportunity to improve my
I realize that I’m not the only one facing this subject. I felt a disadvantage at first but realized some people have never been outside of their state. They either didn’t get the opportunity or don’t have the funds to travel. Going from state to state every couple of years was tiring because my family and I had to go through the packing and moving process so often. However, It was inspirational for me to get educated and get involved in a new environment.
Many immigrants coming to America in the early 1900s came for a better life. Getting a job at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company was highly desired due to the nice building in which the factory was located (Zwonitzer). Most immigrants, even those as young as fourteen, worked to earn money to support their families in the new country (Zwonitzer). Once the immigrants arrived in America they started working and many realized conditions were not always better than what they had left behind, and no matter how hard they worked, there was never enough money. In his book published in 1904, Dr. Edward T. Devine, General Secretary of the Charity Organization of the city of New York, wrote, “Where rentals and provisions are, perhaps, more expensive than
My parents struggled and they still do today, to support themselves while supporting me and giving me a life they deem necessary for my success in the future. It is very difficult to find a job and be happy without a high school diploma and a college degree in a society like ours today in America. My dad doesn’t like his current job but it’s better than nothing and is enough to support our family, fortunately. My mom has been unemployed throughout my life. She actually had to quit her job when I was born so she could take care of me.
Garp is a really good book and it is very hard for me to get into a book, but once i started reading more it started to get better. I think that Garp has a hard life because he does not have a father figure and he never will. His mother Jenny Fields does not want anything to do with men, so he wont ever learn a lot of what boys may be thinking. He got married really quick and moved on with his life and wants to start wring and book, and for Helen his wife to go to college.
Every individual has the opportunities to achieve the dream, but only those who put effort into it are able to achieve it. Unlike in some countries, it is possible for Americans to rise above the economic situations into which they were born and make a living for themselves. Gatsby came from a farming family that was not well off, but because he was determined to do more, he was able to achieve the amount of wealth he believed would be suitable for Daisy. When trying to explain how Gatsby had become what he was, Nick said, ”His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people — his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all. The truth was that Jay Gatsby of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself…” (Fitzgerald 98).
I started thinking what would teach my children if I don’t know English. I immediately knew that in order to survive and be successful in this country, I would have to start college. Seeing my dad working hard as an electrical technician I always wanted to be an electrical engineer. With my husband support and encouragement I started my college. Upon my arrival to The United State of America my husband was working in small company and the money he was earning was not good enough to support our entire family.
