Transcendental ideals are relevant to transcendentalists, but no longer valued in modern American life; transcendentalists are against materialism and hierarchies in society, whereas modern American life is built on hierarchies and the unremitting desire to acquire more and live a garish lifestyle. Transcendentalists live minimally, while most modern Americans strive to be successful and gain as much as possible. There is nothing wrong with pursuing success and wealth, but many transcendentalists see that type of lifestyle as monotonous and insignificant. Due to the hunt for prosperity and materials in modern America, transcendentalism is no longer relevant.
That is the main reason why Edward and Sandra got married. He thought she was a stunning girl and had to get to know her through all the challenges. As said in the book, “Sandra didn't intend to be as beautiful as she was. It wasn't her desire to be loved by so many men-one would do fine” (page 77). Even thought she could have been snobby about her looks, and no one would have blamed her if she was.
Children need us as adult to guide them and provide them their knowledge from the environment through learning and practice from time to time; they need to be mold and shapes by us through our observation. On the other hand, Rousseau believed that children are born with their natural instincts and minimize the obstacles of civilization and let them explore life, learn by themselves and face obstacles by knowing what is wrong and what is right. Children learn
She has always been wealthy, and always aspired to be wealthy. She is used to living in luxury, and is dependent on Tom to provide for her. When describing Daisy's voice, Gatsby says, “Her mouth is full of money” (Fitzgerald 120), meaning even her voice sounds like the stereotypical wealthy person’s. Daisy also reveals her hollowness as a person when she says “I hope she’ll be a fool- that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool” (Fitzgerald 17). In this quote, Daisy demonstrates the hollowness of the upper class by hoping her daughter will be a fool instead of a proper young lady.
As humans, we naturally want to feel accepted, as a child the feeling of acceptance can be placed purely on physical attributes because they do not yet understand the uniqueness of their own personalities. Without the knowledge to truly understand that these ideals are not attainable, they grow up and these feelings carry on with them to their teenage
Her big nose and fat legs show us the physical flaws of the girls and hides the inner beauty she possesses. Although she is smart, healthy, and skilled, she is only worried about what others think of her physical appearance. She spends her life trying to impress others around her and sacrifices her happiness in doing so. She loses who she is and becomes what others believe she should be. Through all of this we can learn that if we love who we are then there’s no one that can take that away from us.
Similarly, the environment plays a big role in determining someone’s behavior. If a person grew up in a bad environment, he would likely have a similar behavior; in addition, if a person grew up in a good environment, he would have a similar behavior. I agree with what John Locke said in his book “Essay
The creation of the butterfly was influenced by the idea of Owen turning regular aspects of himself into something more beautiful than anything seen before. Without the personal aspect of the butterfly, it would not stand out to Owen because there are no relatable qualities. His personal influence on the world adds a whole new level of beauty in Owen’s
Stability according to Daisy can be derived as having overwhelming amount of wealth. The word ‘full’ from the quote symbolizes that Daisy desire to be showered with never-ending amount of money. The word ‘money’ from the quote derived Daisy’s personality as a woman; a materialistic, proud and elegant woman. In fact, Daisy wishes her daughter to be “a beautiful little fool" (pp.100), an attractive woman that would attract the wealthy man and continue her bloodline of ‘Old money’. Daisy’s attention was always materialistic; marrying a socially reputable wealthy man was her key to happiness or perhaps good marriage.
For instance, when you see a women who is gorgeous, but has a bad attitude you would not say she is ugly you would instead think she still has beauty. Yes, someone’s personality can change but the way you look cannot change the opinion of a person’s beauty. Someone’s beauty stays because a person have these features that cannot go away because that is something a person is born with.
Now I know that some people don’t want their kids to know about creation, and they just want their kids to have a full science education, but I believe that people can’t make their own opinions if they don’t know every option or they only know one side of the story. So, as a compromise I believe you should be able to teach creation and evolution to the students. If you want your kid to just know about evolution, then you should send them to an all evolution school. If you want your kid to just know about creation, send them to an all creation school. It’s an easy solution, but parents want the best of both worlds.
In a society that is heavily influenced by mass media, women are repeatedly compartmentalized into unrealistic, and often degrading standards of appearance and sexuality. Doris Bazzini’s research on magazines and Caroline Heldman’s blog explores themes related to a woman’s appearance, while Jessica Valenti elaborates on the concept of virginity in her essay titled, “The Purity Myth”. Despite the diversity in scope when it comes to womanhood, there is a numerous set of expectations that a female must fit in order to be “ideal”. However, this checklist is so specific and debasing that it renders the criteria useless. The three main pre-requisites in being the ideal woman include physical attractiveness, sexual accessibility, and purity.
