Striving to create a legacy through his fiction like his favorite fantasy authors had, Bradbury began publishing his writing out of high school. His love for science-fiction is evident throughout his work, especially in his novel Fahrenheit 451, a story that depicts a futuristic world intent on eradicating books in order to maintain an ignorant, unquestioning society. William Golding also incorporated his past experiences into his writing; however, unlike Bradbury, Golding’s later life influenced his stories. Being a grammar school teacher after college, Golding found writing inspiration in the unruly young boys he taught (“William Golding”). These children undoubtedly shaped Golding’s vision to write Lord of The Flies, a story in which a group of British boys stranded on an island disastrously attempt to govern themselves.
“At age 30, he first explored his engineering talents and went to work as a military engineer for 17 years in Milan. He studied and designed war instruments such as tanks, catapults, submarines, machine guns, and other weapons”(Sniderman, “Leonardo da Vinci”). While most men and women believed Leonardo to be crazy he is now seen as an exceptional inventor and genius. In Leonardo 's scientific studies, Leonardo found out that the range of motion of a bird and of a human was the same, and if a human had wings, he would be able to fly. Leonardo decided that he wanted to be a bird, so he could fly.
Furthermore, Bradley also indicates strong feelings towards two major themes of the book, which are pride in his country and a contempt for the media during wartime. Despite this book being nonfiction, it is clear that Bradley looks to create suspense and engage the audience using short sentence structure and anecdotes about his father and the other five men. For example, in chapter 5, page 20, Bradley writes, “December 1944. The last Christmas for too many young boys. Then off for the forty-day sail to Iwo Jima.” This excerpt contributes to Bradley’s dramatic tone as he talks about young men going off to battle, many not returning to see their families.
Since Bell had a curiosity of sounds and vibrations he made numerous inventions like the de-husker, that could husk corn efficiently. A few years later he moved to London to live with his strict grandfather who taught him science. Soon after, he accepted a job for being a teacher to the deaf and fell in love with his student. Mabel was the girl that he loved but during that time he had to create his invention, so he did not spend a lot of time with her. While Alex was thinking about how his device would work he asked the help of Thomas Watson, a man who worked at an electrical shop, to be his partner.
In the book “The Education of Cyrus” by Xenophon, Cyrus came to learn an abundance of information throughout his life that benefited him in taking over all of his known world. Much of the knowledge he gained in his youth was important, such as what he was taught in Persia like to be virtuous for the sake of virtue and to benefit the community, as well as what he subsequently learned in Media with his grandfather. Even after his education in his youth he continued to learn and the most important bits of knowledge he gained were outside of his formal teachings when he rode with his father to Media once again to help defend them against the Assyrians. Once they had set off to help defend their ally, Cyrus, nearing the end of his youth, was questioned about many things by his father and was taught important knowledge about warfare and also ruling. In particular, the concepts that he was advised about from his father that contradicted the typical Persian way were of utmost importance.
Mechatronics have always been my passion. It began when, as a young boy, I saw my uncle, a vehicle mechanic fixing up his car and overhauling the engine with utmost interest and dedication. As I grew up, I started helping him sometimes in the process and gradually found the electro-mechanics of vehicles interesting and motivating. But the question ‘how’ repeated and reverberated in my mind countless number of times. Most of these inquiries I have encountered have been close to: “How does this system work?” or “How are these components designed?” All these curiosities led me to find myself pursuing an undergraduate program in Mechatronics Engineering.
The author also makes us of intertextuality, when he mentions a quote of his own book “Sticking Points” to create the impression of knowledge and to make his statement stronger. On the fact of the case he is also using the modes of persuasion to make himself more persuasive for the reader. He is using pathos, when he writes about his relationship with his son, “(…) I spent more than six hours the past couple weeks talking my Millennial son trough a tricky situation he faced at work” (l.32-35), which makes the reader more understandable over his situation, and gives the feeling that he is on the same side as the reader. He also builds his own authority through the fact that he shares a personal experience, which is ethos. Thus, the writer is also appealing to the reader’s logic, by using logos with some facts, like “According
In acquiring his professional pseudonym, he also gained a new pronunciation. When Theodore was eighteen, he began attending Dartmouth College in New Hampshire Massachusetts and a short time after that he became an editor of Jack-O-Lantern Dartmouth 's humor magazine.

He split up the books so that the public would keep on buying them and the last two are just for his son, so that his son still has some secrets and can make a dream interpretation business. This collection of books will be my major primary source, as it is a wealth of
I even got special private lessons so I could continue to improve. My dad wouldn’t just go to these lessons, he would sit on a bucket with his glove on waiting for me to pitch. As I got older, and still to this day we have the same routine. Now that I am older, though, I am more grateful that he does this for me. My dad always tells me, “Maddie, if you keep getting faster, I think I may need to invest in some shin guards.” This always makes me not only laugh but realize that I am so lucky to have him in my life.
