With all his contributions, King “won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his Civil Rights achievements” (Nimtz 1). At the end of his life, King was still going strong until his assassination “by James Earl Ray on April 3rd, 1968” (Nimtz
Sadly, people can pass on without leaving much of a legacy behind; questions may have gone unanswered, words could have been left unsaid. Some may say that it is okay because it will not matter in death, but it will to the people that care about you and vice versa, “whether or not we give much thought to it, everyone else we know will” (Chittester, 2008). As people often say, life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We must take advantage of the time we do have and use it as an opportunity to make it the best life we can for ourselves and those who we leave behind or come after
Santiago knew he wanted to follow his dreams; it was helpful when he learned that “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it” because he knew he was now destined to complete his goal, and not somebody else’s (Coelho 64). Because of the alchemist telling him this, he knows his Personal Legend and continues to work for it. Out of the many challenges people face in life, some still just give up instead of persevering. The Alchemist, however, shows that people should never give up, but instead fight through bad situations to complete their goals. Others may think we are just suffering when we persevere, but “no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity” (Coelho 134).
Gatsby believed that he was meant to get out of his current circumstance because it was his destiny. Gatsby even talks about how, “His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people-his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all” (Fitzgerald 104). Throughout all of his young years he felt as though the world was calling to him to become something more. That passion led Gatsby to believing the only way to “free” himself from those “constraints” was by going out into society and becoming a part of the American dream. When he competed his destiny of becoming successful he had not realized how much the journey had taken away his morals and passion that had been present in his younger years.
"No matter how hard you try, you may never achieve your dreams." This quote infers that no matter how hard you try, you might not always make your dream come true. Dreams are another way which can show how an individual can achieve their goals in life and how much they really want it to become true. Everyone has dreams, it’s a fact, and they have hopes for their future even for the dreams that may never happen. But this just shows that people never give up and they always think and believe in their dreams.
Nobody lives happily ever after, but the story impacts people in a way that fairy tales don't. It shows as the reality of people, how others treat people that are different and life in general. If Charlie was a real person I would tell him he needs to get the operation, based on what I know. He deserved to feel like a normal person, and if by any chance he could get that I would tell him to jump at the first sign of hope. So yes, if he had the operation, he could finally pursue his dreams, know what people think of them and why they think that way, and lastly, realizing that he loved Ms. Kinnian.
Within his final part of his life he was fighting for the struggle of the rights of the working class. He spoke about how it brought “misery and despair into the hopes and progress” Overall these two journals were great, but emphasized different aspects of Martin Luther Kings life. Rubboli gave more detail and portrayed Kings biblical stance as to Cavendish focused on the major events that he had done throughout his life. Dr. King was an amazing freedom rights movement leader with many events that we have grown up learning making him an important part of American society. This gives me the reason as to why I chose him as my topic of discussion of this

Dreaming was never a part of me. I always thought a dream was something you wish for. However, setting goals are only my objective because a goal means something you will achieve, unlike a dream, it isn’t something you wish. When you realize, that in life you don’t get what you deserve, you have to start hustling for your own good. Succeeding is one way to define who I am.
