Currently, passion is one of basic factor for choosing the right jobs. If we don’t have passion for our career, we will waste our time, and destroy our future. According to “The Case for Working with Your Hands” by Matthew B. Crawford, he mentions, “Seeing a motorcycle about to leave my shop under its own power, several days after arriving in the back of a pickup truck, I don’t feel tired even though I have been standing on a concrete floor all day” (371). This essay discusses about the life of Crawford who had a Ph.D. in political philosophy, he worked at a think tank; nevertheless, he gave up this job to open a motorcycle repair shop. Obviously, he can choose to become a philosopher who is intellectual worker, so why he still accepts to work

Great altruistic leaders that you respect from the deepest part of your heart can also make huge mistakes that can result in severe consequences. But at the end of the day, people still look up to them. Odysseus from the epic poem, The Odyssey, and Everett from the Hollywood film, 'O' Brother Where Art Thou' were astounding leaders whom their men admired. Although Odysseus and Everett are portrayed as very similar characters, there are many distinguishable differences between them.
Personally, all it takes is for one or a couple exude motivation or positive vibes and that within itself becomes contagious in a right way. Red says,” you know, everyone thinks that we found this broken-down horse and fixed him, but we didn’t. He fixed every one of us, and I guess in a way we kind of fixed each other.” Marcela gave Howard hope, Tom encourage Red, Red motivated George and Seabiscuit drove Red to ride

The narrator wasn’t even being switched to another college but he moved to New York to work. They really wanted the narrator to live a bad life. In the beginning of the story, the narrator talks about being invisible to the white people. It makes me think because I can’t relate to this at all because I live in the bay area. This book gives me a small sense of how black people who are not from the bay area must feel.
This is an interesting concept as it appears that no one in the village, not even the oldest man, has a good reason for when and why the lottery began. This symbol of tradition, Old Man Warner, is designed to show that even the man with the most experience and arguably most knowledge about the tradition, since he has gone through the lottery for 77 years, just blindly follows it because it has always been that way (Jackson 316). We see that even Warner is merely a victim of blind tradition as it is revealed that, “the original paraphernalia for the lottery had been lost long ago…before Old Man Warner,” showing that even Warner was not around when the tradition began. Warner, the symbol of tradition itself, is used by Jackson to reveal how even the most experienced people can still fall into blindly following established

Howard went through months of sniping school to become the best. He had to make his own ghillie suit to disguise him from his direct and if he was seen he would fail but if you were not seen then you passed.
Thats the question i ask my self everyday these past couple of months. I feel as if I never made my own decisions in life. I always depended on my guardians and others to help make my decisions . It’s good to get help from others to make decisions but not all the time. There were time where I would like to do certain things and i would ask a friend how they felt about it and if they negatively commented I would automatically change my mind , there would be parties I would not want to go to but the people i surrounded my self around wanted to go I would force my self to go.
One thing that Teixeira said in the first line was struck out to me. He was talking about how he doesn’t have patience for certain things, not because he is full of himself but because he doesn’t want to be bothered with people that doesn’t want his best interest in heart. From my own personal experience I would agree with him on this. I look back to freshman year in high school.
In more than 60 years on the beat, if Red Fisher ever missed a deadline by more than an hour, it was because the Soviets had shut down the phone lines. He’s the best. As a man and as a journalist. Sorry, Red, I hope you’ll forgive me – but it had to be
In order for a place to be considered a national monument it must be historically significant in the United States of America. Once this is determined by the national government it will then be made available and kept up to par for any people who wish to visit it. The President Lincoln and Soldiers Home is considered a national monument because of its popularity amongst the Presidents, specifically President Abraham Lincoln, throughout the years and because it is one of the first places to be considered a home and provide services to veterans who have served for our country. Given its importance in the history of our country it is essential that one be informed of the reasons it became considered a national monument in the year 2000.
