When Abigail Adams suggest that her son was fortunate enough to witness "who have made glorious defense of their invades liberties." She uses Americas history into becoming an independent country to show hardship that will come but the outcome from it is even better. Next example she used is, "Would Cicero have shone so distinguished an orator if had not been roused, kindled, and inflamed by the tyranny of Catiline, Verres, and Mark Antony." Adams proposes that adversity will come in life, but it will make him a great leader.
Discovery of such history had a profound impact on Equality such as when he read the word “I”. It is through man’s writing in which Equality came to understand “the blessed thing which (he) had called (his) curse” (98). This writing had such a positive impact on Equality that he decided to “write the first chapter of new history of man” so that it would be eternal (101). It is through his writing, that Prometheus will be remembered not as a number, but as a hero who vanquishes collectivism.

He focused specifically on the independence of the American people because he was aware that they deserved better, and that Britain was cheating them of their rights. In his essay, The Crisis #1, he directly calls out the British for who they truly are and what they were actually doing. "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;" and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty.” This sentence alone speaks right to the heart of the people, and talks on how important and dire it is that we act now, for the sake of our children, and their children’s future. His intentions were to provoke those not aware or those partially conscious of the matters and risks at stake, the country and everyone in its freedom. And that’s exactly what he did to start a revolution.

When we read books, we expect our main characters to be these gleaming representations of everything good about humanity. Certainly they may be flawed, but in the end they always win the final battle, or find true love, or save the world. Troy Maxson, main character of Fences, is one of the most tragically human main characters ever. He juggles dozens of sentiments and responsibilities. From his experience in the Negro League and discrimination, to running away from home and his prison time, to his life with Rose and his son Cory, Troy has learned some hard lessons, lessons that, as time goes on and become less true, he still feels responsible to his children to teach them.
The novel is an exhilarating read as Jimmy finds himself having to make even tougher decisions than he did in the first narrative. In the first novel he had searched and finally managed to acquire the first gift out of four. He had been offered the gift by desperate yet mysterious persons who asserted that all they wanted was the world to be saved from one of the biggest threats to safety and tranquility caused by a ruthless enemy. The enemy continues to be as mysterious as they are cruel in never revealing what their true intentions are. All that Jimmy and his associates know is that the Stompers as their enemies are known are coming for them.
‘’He did not think of his course of action as suicidal, but as another gallant gamble of the sort he was accustomed to winning’’ (87).

This novel written by a great writer and also gave great examples of what could or could have happened in the past. We could use this novel to give us ideas of what not to do the future, and that we must avoid potential danger with our
“Reading a good book is like taking a journey.” by Emma Gulliford. I believe in this quote because a book is supposed to grab your attention and never let go. The book, Anthem, is just that, a book about a young man named Equality 7-2521 who lives in a collectivist society, not allowed to do or even think on his own. He must save himself and the ones he love from his horrifying society. The book, Anthem, by Ayn Rand, is an amazing book.

Huck even makes good friends with Jim which would have been completely unheard of back in his home town. By the end of the book, he had started to realize that he really did care about Jim. Huck is writing Miss Watson a letter towards the end of the book talking about where Jim is and how she can get him back. After writing the letter, Huck starts to think about the good times he had with Jim and says that “...somehow I couldn’t seem to strike no places for me to harden against him, but only the other kind.”(213). This was the most powerful part in the book for me because after thinking of all the good that Jim has brought him, he tears up the paper and says “All right, then, I’ll go to hell”(214).
"He has been to the bottom of the abyss, but he has been to the top of the mountain as well" (Patterson and Friedman pg.269). He had a battle with his brain and was triumphant in the end, thanks to his fearless courage. In this read, I have strengthened my knowledge about people like Cory and also learned a lot from Cory 's journey. Three things I learned about myself from the book are how fortunate I am, that anything is possible, and that there is always room for improvement when it comes to tolerance for kids with special needs. One of the first things I learned about myself while reading the novel was that I am very lucky and
