In William Manchester’s account of the Middle Ages, A World Lit Only by Fire, he describes many traits that are essential to the medieval mind. Between the decline of classical pagan culture in Western Europe and the rebirth of culture during the Renaissance, the minds of Europeans underwent many changes as they began to stray from Catholicism and divert their attentions to secular affairs under the notions of humanism. Medieval philosophy was heavily influenced by ideas from the classical works of the Greek and Roman worlds. The Middle Ages were a turning point in history that brought major changes to Europe. One of the traits Manchester believes to be essential to the medieval mind is sinfulness.
Baseball is one of the most well-known sports to the American people and has a major impact on our culture. Baseball brings friends and family together for great times, and competitiveness. Who would have thought that one man made baseball what is today, and that man is Jackie Robinson. Jackie Robinson was the first African American to play in the major leagues and at the time, it shocked America because there were still some segregation issues going on at the time. Jackie Robinson had one goal, and that was to show America that African Americans can play the game of baseball just as good and that they should not be judged by the color of their skin.
In writing the short story, "Jealous Husband Returns in Form of Parrot", Butler illustrates the cause and effect of cowardly behavior. In this story, a jealous husband fears losing his beloved wife due to confronting her of her disloyalty to their marriage.

Life is like a movie. It can be overly filled with joy or as serious as a math final exam. The world is made up of elements like happiness, sadness, joy, sorrow and with these elements comes a time in life where it can be related to certain situations such as times in school. School is like a having second life and in the poem “Schoolsville,” Billy Collins portrays the idea that school is related to life itself as it is comical, serious, memorable, and poignant. It shows how life itself can be like school and how the comical, serious, memorable, as well as poignant elements of life are represented.

Famous philosopher, Marcus Cicero, believes that, “the greater the difficulty, the greater the glory.” In most cases people learn from their mistakes but others don’t, instead they blame on how difficult it was for him/her. Like if there was a car accident, and the two cars were total but there was still people inside. Now keep in mind the doors and closed shut and can’t be open. it was difficult enough for that person to get the people out of the car.
For everything in life there is a consequence. Growing up we learn how those consequences can vary. These consequences can start very small, starting as a child we learn not to touch the stove or else we might get burned, or to respect our parents otherwise we would get a timeout where we would have to think about our actions that got us the punishment. Whatever punishment it was, they all had one thing in common. And that thing is the fact that we learned from our mistakes.

There has been countless tragedies to occur throughout history. Some of these man made, like the Atlantic slave trade, which occured from the 16th to the 19th century, and some nature made, like natural disaster. After reading four separate articles by people of different standings during the Atlantic slave trade, light was shed on who, or what should be held responsible for the tragedies that occured during these 300 years. I have found that not one person or group of people can be held responsible, but instead, the human norms, beliefs, values, and customs that were practiced at that time. This is so important in world history because naturally, humans want to place blame on specific people or a certain person, but more often than not, the reason why tragic events happen is due to the circumstances of the time, and the beliefs, values and customs the people held when the event occured.

In the article “Anatoli Boukreev (Responds to Krakauer)”, Boukreev argues against author Jon Krakauer and his initial allegations in his article “Into Thin Air”, which was published in the September 1996 issue of Outside Magazine. He claims that he was more than qualified to guide groups of paying clients to summit Mount Everest. This is due to his extensive experience in doing exactly that. For example, he has conquered a grand total of 22 mountains in more than twenty years. He has climbed all 22 of these without the assistance of any sort of supplementary oxygen.
