The virtues aren’t for any one specific group but a group as a whole. Man should follow the virtues and not vicious actions because vicious actions are harmful. Franklin believes that everyone should take interest in being virtuous if they “wish’d to be happy even in this World.” (Franklin, 433) Franklin’s 13 Virtues was a guide for Americans and future generations to follow to become the model citizens they believed they were. Franklin listed the ways and descriptions of what one should do to fall into having these as common everyday habits. Once trained to follow the virtues, by working on a specific one each week, man would be able to prove he was a paragon for the society.
Gatsby doesn’t ever seem to really mind his lack of personal connections it was never important to him and thus he should not be held to the same standard that other people are held to. Never in Gatsby’s actions is he cruel while he can be rude and self centered he is
Looking over the past Presidential reigns, we haven’t had a solid president since Reagan! Watching the recent Presidential debate, I was paying close attention to which president mentioned America’s past problems, where we went wrong, and how to avoid those problems again. Marco Rubio was the only one stood out to me, because he mentioned the Iran-Contra affairs and how our leaders could have took certain actions to prevent the whole scandal. I only mention the
With most characters denying their education and picking up troubled forms of entertainment, the print culture is ignored and misunderstood. It is clear that the characters in the show do not care or hold intellectual readiness to understand the educated print works; they go after the simpler leisure’s of society, like working on the streets to get easy cash. The Wire and Serial showed people rejecting help, to better benefit themselves. In episode two of The Wire, Michael refuses to take Marlo’s money, even though it would benefit him greatly. Michael doesn’t take the money because he doesn’t want to owe someone for something he wants to earn himself.
Dean didn’t want to meet people ‘like him’. Dean wanted to meet people that enjoyed the same things he did, regardless of culture, ability, religion, or gender. Dean wanted what we all want: to belong. I set out that day to be the giver of the greater good, and I actually became the receiver. Henry Ford once stated, “To do more for the world than the world does for you - that is success”.
During the game he would play to win, but once the game was over he wanted to separate himself so that he was not the focus. One might think it was natural to enjoy the spotlight, especially when one achieved at the level Neil Armstrong did. “Neil Armstrong’s Death at the age of 82 is an occasion to elevate again in the public eye the personal values that he represented; excellence, fortitude, worthy dreams and personal humility” ( “Remembering ‘Reluctant Hero’ Neil Armstrong”). Mr. Armstrong’s humility was apparent in not only his actions, but also apparent when others spoke about him. Therefore, the trait of humility is yet another example of why Neil Armstrong is a
Not only that, your social status really does not matter because anyone with the ability to speak against an injustice should. It does not matter if you are experiencing it directly or just an observer because seeing an injustice and not doing anything about it is just as bad as doing the injustice yourself. They continue to try and scrutinize Kaepernick for a peaceful protest, but most major protest were not popular at the time. When the Civil rights protest was going on, their were people who were very against integration. Colin Kaepernick’s protest was
In this quote, Bob asks if there 's anything that can be done about this, Bill said that there is nothing that would alter the situations. This means all the misconceptions and discrimination that the western population have portrayed towards the Natives cannot be changed. The society thinks that it is outside limits to make a difference, so no one bothers. This shows that indigenous people are not cared for. Whether indigenous people existed or not, there would be no impact of them in the society.
In the article ”Dear Grads: Don’t Do What You Love” published on May 28, 2013, the author Carl McCoy, argues that college graduates should obtain a job that will benefit society instead of getting a job because they have motivation for it.

He explains that love is a consequence of a job that benefits society, which is more rewarding than doing something just because it is motivating. The author 's overall message is that success is more meaningful when there is a deeper sense of purpose. With genuine purpose, love will always prevail.
Arnold works hard to make his friends. He sticks up to himself and doesn’t bully others even though he has been many times. Another time Arnold is kind to his friend is when he is talking about Rowdy, “It makes me think of Rowdy. I missed him so much. I wanted to find him, and hug him and beg him to forgive me for leaving(217).” He and Rowdy have been friends for a long time and that is because Arnold appreciates him.
By doing this you are pretty much deciding that the third party wins, and in this case that was Woodrow Wilson. Woodrow wilson was very different than presidents before him because he wanted isolationism as a foreign policy, which did not end up happening. Early in his presidency isolationism was practiced, we stayed out of every other country’s business. Our history as an imperialist country is quite long. Rather
