Of course not. It merely depends on the person. While one might say it leads to wonderful habits and actions, another might believe it ruins lives. In my case, I believe that while perfectionist tendencies haven’t ruined my life, I would likely be better off without them. I’ve lost count of how many notebooks I’ve filled with promising ideas that were simply ‘not good enough’ to pass my confounding criticism.
It is important to remember that other’s can see thing we cannot, especially children as they have a perspective we may have forgotten through the years. Now it is important to differentiate critique and the common misuse of criticism; though these are synonymous, they seem to be misused. Criticism, in today’s world, is seen as judgement, whereas critique is a constructive analysis. We can grow through actively accepting constructive critique and criticism (the correct use of the word), because the reality is that we do not understand just how valuable it truly is. Elon Musk, an innovator and a proactive citizen of our society, said “A well thought out critique of whatever you’re doing is as valuable as gold.” So the question becomes just how much do you value
I believe Socrates’ views on life can be used by many to improve their lives. Many people today have become so materialistic in way that is unhealthy for the soul. People neglect their soul and do whatever they please because they think a life full of pleasures is a good life. This is not true though, a good life in today’s society is one that is lived in a modified Socratic way. We must continue to seek the universal truths and become a more complete human being as Socrates said, but also find a way to incorporate technology to benefit ourselves and not hinder us.
Equality knows he is smart, because he was constantly reminded of his transgression of having a quicker mind than his brothers growing up. He isn’t quite sure what to do with his intelligence, but he knows that he wants to be accepted into the House of Scholars so he can use it to learn and support his community by making it better. However, being too smart is considered a sin amongst his society, and he is made a Street Sweeper by the Council of Vocations so that he can’t put his gift to use. His curiosity, despite it getting him in trouble, helps him educate himself about his surroundings. For example, while experimenting with a dissected frog, he discovers electricity through a copper wire and this eventually leads him to create a light bulb
Claiming that bad influence towards education makes it resistant. Penrod’s argument may have several flaws, but overall it is effective because the reading he uses a few appeals throughout; however, not all of his appeals are trustworthy or objective at times, his appeals are still effective through the use of supporting sources, clear-cut thesis, and thought-provoking statements. Penrod claims that popular events are getting more recognition than needed compared to the intellectuals. From a personal perspective, this presents that there are still anti-intellectuals out there. According to a commentary by the screen name of “ArCaNe,” “Man how I hate nerds… if I ever had a tommygun with me… I would most probably blow each one of their… heads off.” In other words, the commentary has hatred towards intelligent individuals improving the point of anti-intellectualism.
For this essay I am going to write about the pros and cons about why George and Lennie´s partnership would be good and bad, For this part of the essay I am going to be writing about why I think Lennie and George´s partnership would be beneficial. For example I think that George and Lennie´s partnership would be beneficial because, Lennie does not seem as bright of a person like George. Another reason why I think that their partnership would be beneficial is because George seems tough, and he looks like he can do a lot of things on his own with or without Lennie. But, Lennie looks like he would have a hard time surviving without George because Lennie seems like he has a hard time understanding a lot of things, he could also be a little mentally

Unfortunately, Othello’s trust lied on the wrong person, which got himself easily manipulated. His wrong placed trust tortured himself while ruining his entire life.

Dr. King questioned authority for what they did, unjust and unfair towards the community as a whole, but his ambition was the reason why segregation was put to rest. This will explain the pros an individual's ambition begins in creating a different world where everyone around them can be a part of and how they can use him or her as an epitome of ambition can be good for them. In other words, this value tends to become the reason why many grow into someone more responsible, mature, and overall optimistic of the future
Others see technology and facebook in particular as killing the ability of the young generation to write. They point out the fact that in the past, students would write well crafted essays and which would be comprehensive. However, this appears to have been scrapped away by power points and texting which has dehydrated the language into “Bleak, bald sand shorthand.” They indicate that the world may face an age of illiteracy (Thompson, 2009). However, in the midst of all these criticism, Lunsford praises technology and applauds it for taking writing in a new dimension. She does not see technology as killing writing but reviving it and pushing it in bold new
The letter to Amir from Rahim Khan made Amir’s life better. Although it may outwardly seem that Amir was put into another series of difficult decisions and misery, the end result that Amir was desperately struggling to look for is worth it all in the end and Rahim Khan was just there to give him a little push. Rahim knows Amir very well and what he wrote was made with good intentions. Amir is a cowardly person; it’s just who he is, and that he just needed reassuring. Many people may interpret Rahim’s letter as deceptive because he lied about the American couple, but it was the only way Amir would agree to go back to Kabul in the first place.
