Our Founding Fathers were merely men, but they utilized their strengths and conquered their weaknesses to propel themselves into godlike statuses that molded each and every one of them into prominent historical figures. Katori Hall explained this perfectly when she said “We expect our leaders to be godlike. But I feel that when people try to sanctify leadership it puts it out of the realm of regular people. And that’s where the greatest leaders come from – from the people.” Our Founding Fathers harnessed their personal strengths and weaknesses, but this alone wasn’t enough to help them to succeed. They exploited the assistance of anonymous individuals to aid them in acquiring these statuses and their success.
He had the opportunity of creating a big life for himself on his own, but he never took it. This is similar to Sean Parker in the Social Network because he had went to Harvard, but also did not finish. (Find example in movie scene). This shows that neither of the characters valued education, and were somehow brought up and ended up making a lot of money. Their american dream came to them at the time, and didn’t have to work much for until they realized it wasn’t enough and had to try for what they really wanted, which for Gatsby was to have Daisy, and for Parker to have a big website and to be known along with
Weekly schedules can vary, depending on the child and his/her needs. It also depends on the environment I placed in, which can be a school, clinic, hospital or even a separate private program. Most often play is integrated into activities, to keep the children motivated and interested in therapy. There will be schedules of toys, songs, and physical exercise games, as well as using new technology, in my daily
Sadly, only few people know how to acknowledge the solutions and important information given. The breaking point for the popularity of King’s last speech was that he mentioned the keys of a well functioning society in the world back then as well as today; which are unity, nonviolence, achievements in a society and the importance of respect for human rights. For one to consider this truly in the present year, it is more than important to consider all the effects on other people and movement that the speech held. Apart from Edward Said, the “Mountaintop” play and the Stone Mountain Park Memorial there are countless other organisations and people plainly inspired by the inspirational and truthful words of Martin Luther King Jr. In the daily life and routines of an individual it is very important to consider these ideas and concepts as motivations for changing society and making earth a safer and more unified place.
Often the work conducted in Kodak’s research labs related to digital technology was left unappreciated by other by the rest of the company who still believed in silver halide film as the industry standard. Kodak also faltered in its ability to put its acquisitions to use. In addition to some questionable acquisitions, Kodak’s shear inability to convert the acquired technical expertise to successful knew products proved many of its acquisitions to be a waste of time and resources. As an example, Sterling Drug was acquired in 1988 by Kodak for $5.1 billion. The company was purchased solely because the Kodak managerial team felt that the pharmaceutical industry was at its core a chemical business like itself.
In conclusion, throughout Boyle’s book we get a glimpse of how the Reconstruction Era was a failure through the story of Ossian Sweet. Sweet worked diligently his entire life to get where he was, and he was on a path for quite a successful life. Unfortunately, the time period of the Reconstruction Era was catered towards white individuals and not people of color. Therefore, no matter how successful one is, the color of their skin will always cement them as the subordinate race, and we saw this with Ossian. Even though he won the case, his success didn’t matter anymore.

In the “Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge”, Coolidge harps on the fundamental importance of hard work to one’s eventual success, far before it was ever fashionable to do so. He stresses that his career, in law and politics alike, had “little about it that was brilliant, or spectacular”, but was rather “the result of persistent and painstaking work”. Coolidge’s many successes can be attributed, paradoxically, to his acceptance of his limitations. He knew that the hand that he had been dealt in life was not one of a
Strength, intelligence, and courage; these are the qualities that were vital to survive as a Pilgrim in North America. Along with these qualities, history tells us quite a bit about the “Pilgrims”. The Pilgrims were hardworking, God-fearing, and audacious individuals. Sadly, they existed over 300 years ago, so no one has ever had the unique opportunity to hear from them first hand. Well, that is, until now.
― Lao Tzu Any fool can rule others, but it takes courage and mental power to rule your own heart. Have you ever considered about the truth, why history never remembers those who ruled others, even while they were very strong and had an immense impact on mankind, in the same way, while you think of happiness why you run for those souls who ruled themselves instead of ruling others? “Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. ― Lao Tzu Life is never complex; it is as simple as it should be nonetheless it is always us who made unnecessary changes to it for our so-called greater benefits, but generally which grow to be our greatest regrets later.
