According to Cavell on differentiating between the animate and inanimate: “…there are no marks or features or criteria or rhetoric by means of which to tell the difference between them. From which, let me simply claim, it does not follow that the difference is unknowable or undecidable. On the contrary, the difference is the basis of everything there is for human beings to know, or say decide (like deciding to live), and to decide on no basis beyond or beside or beneath ourselves.” The separation of animate and inanimate is impossible until one acknowledges the separateness of the other; another person is not just an extension of
My brother-in-law got out of high school and joined the military and when he got back he went to college and fit a 6 year degree into 4 year time slot. He earned his free college it wasn’t just handed to him. If free college was given to people without anything in return they would goof off. Granted my brother-in-law didn’t have the financial burden that comes along with college, but he gave up years of his life to serve the country. The football player and my brother-in-law both had free college.
Prometheus escapes in order to create such a society of freedom and self-liberation. I do not contemplate Prometheus’ society will have any of these rules. I think this because if he wants individuals to succeed in life and have the right to creativity then he would not limit the citizens to
Everyone is born with different privileges, yet these privileges do not define people. The adversities that someone has in life should not define their success or happiness. No one is destined to have a life full of misery. It is people’s attitude towards their resources -good or bad- that defines this. People write their own endings through the choices they make.
They do not need to inform with their partner what they did today or feel miserable if their partner lies in them. They have not to remember the anniversary of both or spend too much money to buy the gift or go to the posh restaurants. They feel happier and save a lot of money for themselves, so they can stress less about money. The young single people are not surprised by the bill or credit card when it comes because they have decided what they want to use for their money. If they are single, they may be more successful at work.
From beginning to end, Irving demolishes the credibility of the myth, with things such as the invention of the historian Knickerbocker to the judge. Irving points out the flaws that exist in America through the use of Rip. When he does not recognize himself this is synonymous with America’s inability to recognize or define themselves. The society is not in harmony with its thought’s and action’s which disillusions the purpose of the myth giving them a sense of identity. Irving plays off of various inspirations and his character Rip undergoes the typical heroic journey.
a. Emerson’s idea about self-reliance is doing what makes you happy and not worrying about what people will think of you; alsfheo doing things individually. In the passage, he says that every person has the potential for accomplishing amazing things without the negative effect of society; this is accomplished through the power of self-belief. Emerson also talked about how people should not follow the rules (not in a rebellious display) in order to express individualism. Regarding these beliefs, I side with Emerson because I believe that people should be themselves and not allow society to tell them how to act. On the
Happiness is what makes yourself smile and enjoy the life that you have. Make others happy because you do what they want you to do won’t make you happy and won’t make them happy either, even if they think otherwise. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” were deemed to be unalienable rights by the Unites Estates Declaration of Independence. In my opinion, that means that you can’t live without liberty, and liberty is impossible to be found without the pursuit of happiness that you can only obtain when you make what you want and what makes you happy. I think that is why Christopher left his home, because he knew that he wouldn’t be happy doing was he was supposed to do; meet a girl, find a job, have a family…He felt that that was what others wanted for him, not what the really wanted.
Try and take care of them and be a bit lenient towards them and treat them with extreme care. Do not chain them and strangle them till the very last second. Let them enjoy their life and make the best use it until someone decides to unnecessarily kill them. Lastly we can let people that what they are doing is completely wrong even it is for the sake of religion as they can celebrate in a more cleaner and friendlier way. Festivals does not mean that you must take an animal's life.
