She says, “if we have neglected the development of the spirit for the sake of the material, we have the time now to think again about what it means to be alive, to be full of life, to love all of life, to be full of God. These can be the years when our spirits soar beyond any old injuries, above all the old pettiness, overcome all the ingrained prejudices that have kept us from enriching our lives with friends who are black and brown and yellow and red and white” (Chittester, 2008). This message is compelling to me because I often tell myself that there is always tomorrow. There will be more time to make connections. There will be more time to do more good.
Every second every minute and every hour is very important in everybody's life if it is wasted you have wasted the time to do great things and without life or death you cannot do great things. Life is very important if you were to live forever there is no meaning of life for anything. When you do great things in life and live forever there is no point to do all those things if there is no end. Without death there is no meaning of life or no meaning to do anything at all. In the novel, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt, Jesse Tuck, Miles Tuck, and Winnie Foster all develop their own opinions about whether or not it is a blessing or a curse to live forever.
Understanding is how humankind learns to prosper in modern-day environments. It shapes the decisions we conceive, the actions taken, and how to present ourselves preferably. Unfortunately, these single stories that were acquired to understand, are in fact doing the opposite. Humans know less about one another than ever before, because of the single stories, our society believes they already know everything about each other. We place these single stories on ourselves and each other, while assuming everyone’s lives are following them and no one differs.
I am too strong for her to keep me here forever. One day I will go away” (Cisneros 110). This quote shows that Esperanza has found that she is strong and independent, she is all the things that she had been working for. Stephen finds himself when he understand that he does not need to conform to be like everybody else and that he can be free and do what he loves without fear of disappointing others. “I may learn in my own life and away from home and friends what the heart is and what it feels” (Joyce 196).
People always try everything that is within them to achieve their dreams. This happens because since little people think big without looking at the circumstances that are around. People think that they could become anything if they work for it. They are excited thinking about what they can do to be better every day so they could be able to reach their goals, nevertheless, then there comes a time in life when all dreams start to become impossible and more distant every day. In Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell reveal several stories that talk about different people that have become successful in different ways.
Lynard Skynard clearly believes you should be nothing more than yourself because you won't understand anything better than your own self. Than he continues to go on and say “ don't live o fast troubles will come and pass”. That really goes with what it's about to be a transcendentalist. Everyone has their own problems so of course things are going to go wrong but don't let that stop you from being you everything in the end will work itself out no no matter how hard it gets. Lynyrd just like many other transcendentalist believe the simple life is the best life you will be much happier than being
Harriet Beecher Stowe once said, “When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you... never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” This quote by Stowe can be used in every challenging situation from the simplest to the most complex. Although our generation is known for giving up because of loss of interest, never quitting will allow the feeling of accomplishment when reaching a succeeded goal, and achieving an all-around goal will allow room to take that goal forward and to a new and diverse level. Giving up is easy. Giving up is part of human nature that we all know and have given into once or twice in our lifetime. That is okay.
Since I am more mature, I search for changes. I have developed to expect them. My grandparents will soon be gone, yet the recollections of the area they live on and I experienced childhood with will dependably be with me. Indeed, even as the world keeps on changing, the opportunities in nature my grandparents have imparted to me will never show signs of change. They taught me to take a gander at my reality, to listen to its music, and to fortune what is before me.
Jeannette Walls perfectly modelled resilience, with help of her family, in The Glass Castle. Elizabeth Edwards’s quote about how changes in life shouldn’t bring one down. How being strong and fighting for oneself is much more important and helpful rather than sulking and comparing oneself to another. Resilience is different for everyone, it all depends on how one was raised and how their life experiences impact them. Human resilience is, however, a natural instinct.
Purpose, it 's just a word, so is living, loving, laughing, forgiving...All will work out! Don 't be so intimidated by one small word...By Anna Pereira. Life is so ironic...It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence...Unknown. Three simple rules of life; If you don 't go after what you want, You 'll never have it; If you don 't ask, the answer will always be No; If you don 't step forward, you will always be in the same place...By Vincent Happy Mnisi. Everyday is chance to change your life.
You can start with nothing and end with a whole lot of something. Amos shows that everyone can follow their dreams, and be who they want to be, but at the end of the day you have responsibly to follow, and if you lose sight of what you are doing you can lose all you got. Just
Despite the trials of character, we find a way to work together at the end of the day. I cannot control who is on the varsity Tigettes, but I would not want it any other way. I consider my team “the sisters I never had” and I will love them until the day I die. That doesn 't mean that we don 't argue. When you spend so much time with people that have such drastically different personalities, it can get tense.
Have a meaningful life. If wars happen again, we can always find somewhere safe, and we hide until the war is ended." And she said, “There cannot be any hope for tomorrow… if no one fights for today.” Loss is a sobering phenomenon. Before the Great War, I was just an ordinary citizen. Disastrous always feel so distanced, detached.
We went on to win that tournament. Today I realize I should have slowed down to enjoy that moment (now I am lucky if I even get a hit.) I now know to slow down and to enjoy any moment because it will not last. I also now try to have more confidence, as I struggle every day worrying that I am not good enough for anything. I miss this moment.
Eleanor Roosevelt had once stated “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the think which you think you cannot do.” An interpretation of this is that the only way growth and courage can increase is when the time is taken to perform at the best state possible. This can occurs when there is a challenge which may or may not be extremely difficult, but you must push forward and come out ahead. The Little Rock nine had to endure going to school facing true hatred and constant denigrate each and everyday. They would come home muddled and morose, hoping that the next day it would be better.
