In the beginning of the poem, he addresses the fairest star, acknowledging its right to be obscured at times because this adds to their beauty. He reflects that affecting a mysterious air increases the elegance of those who are proud (6). He challenges the star to teach him, questioning their scientific composition and quality (9-15). The star, of course, fails to respond and Frost is left to conclude that the noblest lesson to be gained from the star is to be like it – steadfast and staid regardless of what events transpire around it (27-28). He also refers to a similar poem by John Keats when he refers to Keat’s Eremite, which is a sonnet of that name comparing Keat’s lover to a steadfast star (Fagan 63).
“Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, / But bears it out even to the edge of doom” (line 11-12). Here, Shakespeare writes that time does not cause changes between two partners. The love between them can withstand the harsh trials of time even till death. He sets the boundaries of the relationships or, in other words, draws the boundaries of the map by describing “the edge of doom” (line 12). “...[Though] rosy lips and cheeks / Within his bending sickle’s compass come” (lines 9-10) The partners in the relationship are bound to meet new people, but their love is so strong and true that they remain faithful to each other.
Heterosexuals deal with lust as much as homosexuals. To have a thought is not of itself sinful. How that thought is entertained will determine whether that thought becomes sinful. Will I give in to my lusts or will I bring them captive to Christ? A person can identify therefore as homosexual but not give in to their lusts and live a godly life, just as a single man can live a Christian life and wrestle with heterosexual thoughts.
Friendship has no place for betrayal; if it does then it is no true but a superficial relationship. Everyone wants that one person with whom they can think aloud. True friendship does not have a fixed definition but has a belief. As said by C.S. Lewis “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” True friendship means bonding between two different people and as it grows stronger and stronger, it has a lot of positive aspects.
There’s been this burning question as to whether or not Nick, the narrator, is either straight or gay. The true answer to this question is that he falls under the asexual umbrella. More specifically under either asexual, the term for the lack of sexual attraction to others, itself or a little thing called graysexual, a term for lacking a sexual attraction to others with the occasion of feeling sexual attraction. One cannot say for sure that he is completely ace, however gray fits Nick Carraway like a glove. Throughout the book Nick describes characters in a detail that insinuates he focuses on the aesthetic appeal of most people, not just women and not just men.
Exotic love is the simplest form of love, a love that has not properly developed, or has not made it all the way up the ladder to true love between lovers. From lust to a higher level of love. In the symposium plato seems to emphasize love between an older lover and a younger beloved, but the theory plato proposes can also be relevant in other types of relationships. There are two eros; the Vulgar eros is one who in love focuses on beauty and the body. They have yet to realize that a beautiful body is not uncommon and can be seen anywhere.
Gay marriage is what this song is about, my opinion of the meaning of gay marriage is that people should not judge people on who they like if they like each other then let them love one another if they are gay or lesbian. The meaning is important because in every song there is a meaning and this meaning is about gay so people should love each and every one. When he says “I can’t change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to” this means that Love is love no matter who is giving it and who is receiving it. The meaning of the song is strong to the people who love others that are there type. The reason the song is strong is because there are lots of people in the world loving others that are there type.
Concluding Statement In conclusion, the force of attraction and love is something unique and hard to replicate. The fact that Helena’s blind love for Demetrius is something only fairy magic can replicate, as in the case of Titania and Bottom, is a testament to how strong their love is. Paragraph 2 (reason and love keep little company together nowadays/the foolishness of love) Topic Sentence Unconditional love is a prevalent theme in A Midsummer Night 's Dream, and the blind nature of this love can be a great thing, especially since ignoring a romantic partner’s flaws can lead to a happier relationship. However, in A Midsummer Night 's Dream, Shakespeare takes his characters’ love to an irrational extent - so much so, that a prevalent theme of the play is the foolishness and folly of love. Context After being enchanted by Oberon’s love potion, Titania is awoken by Bottom, who she then falls madly in love with.
He said how he is happy with his wife and his children, but he also meets his gay friends and do activities such as badminton and dinner. He said that he is content with the way he is living. Although he believes that being homosexual is abnormal, he has accepted the fact that he is not able to change. He also stated, “Freedom is perhaps the most important thing in the Western world, but for us Chinese people, the most important thing is harmony. I don't need freedom.
Pausanius stresses that the best relationships arise from male and male relationships, such as the relationship he has with Agathon. Eurymachus uses his medical proficiency to guide his speech on love. The Symposium concludes with Socrates and Diotima 's speech on the difference between what can be defined as true versus false love. Virtue ought to be the inspiration for love, however, in his speech, Agathon, elucidates Eros ' beauty and goodness by alluding to Eros ' love of the beautiful. Agathon does not simply state that Eros is the youngest god, but he goes so far as to say that Eros seeks the young and flees
