What does writing mean to me? Writing means getting people engaged in your piece. It means people wanting to keep reading what you wrote. The biggest thing about writing to me is expressing your thoughts and letting your mind go. Using good word choice and having a strong voice in the writing is something that makes it good.
On one hand, I agree that telling a white lie is fine when no harm is caused to the individuals involved. Whether it is to spare their feelings, avoid conflicts, or to simply maintain the harmony of a relationship, white lying is tolerable to an extent. On the other hand, I am not sure if everyone knows how to distinguish the borderline between an honest fib and a purposefully deceiving lie. Just as Paterson noted, we only get offended when someone tells us a lie. Only then do those tiny lies discomfort us, yet we all continue to do
Finally, the last section reads, “Don 't take for granted the love this life gives you, when you get where you 're going don 't forget turn back around and help the next one in line”. This tells us to know that any good we receive in life does not belong totally to us, but we should appreciate what we have and use it to help
Hummingbirds seem to find a great deal of joy in life, but the rapid pace of their lives causes them to easily approach death. Because of this, the hummingbird does not live long. Doyle states that “The price of their ambition is a life closer to death; they suffer more heart attacks and aneurysms and ruptures than any other living creature” (Doyle). Hummingbirds find delight through flying and searching for food; however, the continual movement can put a dangerous amount of strain on their hearts. Although their
For example, Wilcox conveys that following one’s will leads to happiness because it allows a person to make their own decisions and relish their freedom: “And briefly said are love, and will, and time; / Yet in them lies a majesty sublime” (Wilcox 18: 9-10). In addition, she conveys that having “will” gives a person a purpose and an optimistic attitude for the future as “Will is the means of using time and love, / And bringing forth the heart’s desires thereof” (13-14). Wilcox conveys that without expressing one’s sentiments or feelings, one can never feel happy or complete because they never truly have mastership over their time; without expressing “will,” a person cannot preserve their self-identity. Furthermore, Wilcox conveys that one’s “will” allows them to experience happiness as “When the motive is right and the will is strong / There are no limits to human power” (Wilcox 27: 1-2). Although someone may not necessarily prevail in a fight or a competition, the fact that they put effort and time into the act allows people to live life to the fullest and possess self-mastery.
Whenever someone talks about quitting or giving up, I tell them about the experience I had and how positive the outcome was. Never giving up even when you want to is a sign of strength. Believing in yourself even with the simplest things, is a good characteristic to have. Hopefully the next time I think of giving up, I will remember the impact it had on me. From now on I will go by this famous quote, "Quitters never win, and winners never
Purpose, it 's just a word, so is living, loving, laughing, forgiving...All will work out! Don 't be so intimidated by one small word...By Anna Pereira. Life is so ironic...It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence...Unknown. Three simple rules of life; If you don 't go after what you want, You 'll never have it; If you don 't ask, the answer will always be No; If you don 't step forward, you will always be in the same place...By Vincent Happy Mnisi. Everyday is chance to change your life.
If you want something deeply, you can get it. In that way, it is possible to get a happy ending even after experiencing something similar to what Pip felt. In the end, Pip became friends with Estella, even after knowing that she was the cause for his change which lead to all his misery in life. A moral theme that was taught in Great Expectations is to not change yourself for anyone or any reason. It is important to always keep your individuality and not to be susceptible to being swayed by someone.
Why at 19 or so should anyone have to be concerned with their actions, behaviors, and future? This is the time to have fun no? Correct, it is. Everyone should cherish their youth as it is simply that….their youth. It only happens once but there is never any harm in putting thought into ones actions, behaviors, and future.
