Through taking risks, wanting to be happy, and understanding their inferred backgrounds, the reader can assume that this belief of “cause and effect” significantly changed their way of life, which highlights how free will is not so free. Clearly, many theories arise while analyzing Neo and Eve, but the main judgement that can be made about the two are their desire to be successful. Although Neo himself believes in free will, his ambitious attitude to be successful rejects his belief in free will because he is rather unquestionable. Neo and Eve share their willingness to experience the unknown, illustrating their risk-taking
In the book, Holden wants to keep his innocence, but he also wants to grow up and toss that innocence away. He still keeps his childhood personality by constantly obsessing over things that shouldn’t matter. In The Catcher in the Rye, Holden demonstrates the struggle of transitioning between childhood and adulthood by revealing his hassle to grow up. Maturity comes through being an adult and growing up is all about becoming more mature. Throughout the book, Holden goes through numerous conflicts and problems.
Just like Graff said, he didn’t believe he was becoming intellectual, but what he was doing on a daily basis was preparing him to be a scholarly student. Due to the “reading and arguing about sports and toughness” he eventually grew to “propose a generalization, restate, and response to a counterargument, and perform other intellectualizing operations” (Graff 248). By Graff having something he passionately enjoyed made it easier to strengthen these “clever skills” he was using without noticing it himself. Students have things they have strong opinions about. That leads to defining their point, viewing both sides, and thinking wisely to make their points stronger; all what a literature class looks for.
If you just sit around waiting for good things to come to you, do you think that you’ll succeed in life? I highly doubt it. If you don’t work hard for what you want in life then you’ll never get anywhere, and you’ll, likely, not amount to much. To be happy, you need to work hard for what you want in life. There are countless benefits to working hard.
He stated and gave many examples to try and prove his point through. In many ways I agree with him, students should do what they are interested in, but some may be lazy and not do anything which is why they might need that help that teachers provide. At the end of the day I think teachers do feel like they taught at least one person something new that day which might help them out with their future college path or occupations. But, at the same time I disagree because I think most should attend school not just for their grades and their parents, but also for themselves. Just knowing what is going on around you gets you feeling
Although multiple people believe that the conclusion is all that matters, the adventure will be memorable. The journey is more rewarding than the accomplishments. In contrast, multiple people believe the accomplishments are more rewarding because of a trophy or a special prize. Accomplishments make people feel pleasurable at the time, however, the experience
Living a life of happiness comes from doing things that you have a passion for. If you live without guidance from your passions, it is very hard to be content. In “The Great Gatsby” written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, a lot of individuals are hindered from true joy because they live for things that they aren’t passionate about. Finding satisfaction in life has to come from doing things that you’re passionate about, not things that only give you temporary happiness. The wealth and worldly possessions of an individual can make life fun but it can only be short lived if they aren’t happy about how they’re living.
Viewing the future as something mysterious and unknown is a part of human nature. But what makes us unique is that we are curious and thirsty for knowledge, even when we are uncertain about the consequences of this knowledge. This paradox makes us both fear and anticipate getting out of our comfort zone by broadening our knowledge, especially when it comes to technology. Although most of us are too busy with mundane activities to follow the advances of technology and the way they change the world around us, some people are ambitious enough present their ideas to the audience. As filming movies has always been a way to provoke imagination and challenge common beliefs, it is one of the easiest ways to change the way people see the future of
There is a thin line between fact and fiction, sometimes we forget to disconnect and provide some distance from our technology geared lives. These days it is hard to have a real conversation with someone else, whether it be at a restaurant or at home. "If there's a digital device nearby, chances are that one or both of you will be distracted or interrupted" (William Powers 85). I'm guilty of this, anywhere I go I take my phone out, check to see if I have any new notifications or just out of habit. "thoughtful people were realizing that, for personal well-being and happiness, it was necessary to restore some of that distance to everyday life (Powers 88).
Different people have different opinions. Some people argue that opportunity is the most important factor to achieve success. Once somebody has an opportunity, then he or she will easily achieve success.Some other people believe that to achieve success depends on people themselves. In their opinion, achieving success is a personal thing, so it's okay to work very hard without considering other features. I don't agree with either of these two opinions, however, I believe that to achieve success needs a full preparation including a final goal, confidence, features such as perseverance and hard-working, instead of focusing on opportunity only or people themselves.
