The Cat In the Hat is one of the most famous books written by Dr.Seuss, and also the one to solidify his place in the writing industry. It shows children that they are plenty of activities to do if one uses their imagination (Porter). Geisel was challenged to write this story by William Spaulding. He asked Geisel to create a story children wouldn’t be able to put down, but he could only have two-hundred twenty-five words in it that all came off of a three-hundred forty-eight vocabulary word list. His inspiration for that book was that he would find words that rhymed and make them the title of the book, and the verses inside (Seuss).
McCandless was and is an inspiration to many people. His impact on Ron was evidently the strongest during his
Cesar Chavez wrote a piece in the magazine of religious organization on the ten year anniversary of Martin Luther King. He starts off saying that Dr. King was a very powerful man with nonviolent means. Throughout his writing he gives many example of why nonviolence will ultimately succeed over violent means, and give of many appeals of emotional, logical, creditable justification. Dr. King may have dies, but with his death only more power has come to the peaceful citizens of the world. The audience that Chavez is addressing is very familiar with Dr. King, and the troubles he went through so it is not hard at all to relate to the audience with ideas of Martin Luther King.
Jack London had been an American novelist and is known for works such as The Call of the Wild, which McCandless greatly admired. Chris McCandless had greatly admired Jack London, going as far as carving “Jack London is King” at what came to be the site of his death. The Jack London quote used in the epigraph describes a scene in the forest but uses bitter imagery- yet somehow still romanticises it. “Alex” was unable to ever see past the facade London had built- given that London had hardly ever spent time in the wild himself and most definitely nowhere near as intense as Alaska. This chapter had described how he had been found and this quote leads back to that because though Chris was intelligent, he did not understand that London had to make nature sound beautiful.
The novel of, The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain is a famous novel about a boy named Huck Finn and his adventures. There 's a great amount of unique quotes in the novel and one of them is, “ Each person had their own nigger to wait them-Buck too. My nigger had a monstrous easy time, because I weren 't used to having anybody do anything for me, but Buck’s was on the jump most of the time” ( page 109). This quote shows something about Huck 's character, which is by the way, different from everybody else’s at that time. This quote also shows some things about history, which is the slavery of course.
His ideas were the product of a diverse early career; all of his experiences pre-planning (pre-1958, essentially) informed his designs down the road. Having spent a lot of time farming, Olmsted was fond of, and personally felt a connection to, transcendental ideals. He valued man’s connection with nature as a divine and important part of life. Olmsted’s quintessential love of nature springing from his farming days was compounded, firstly, by his inspiration from Andrew Jackson Downing. Downing was a mid 19th century author who wrote best selling books about rural life.
Although the reader of their poetry can distinguish several differences between the two poets, one will also notice that they both also shared similarities within their poetry.

Thomas loved the outdoors due to the vastly beautiful landscapes he was raised on.
Harlow Shapley was a very well established man who had made significant discoveries in the world of science. It was Shapley that had found out that the sun was not, in fact, the center of the universe but rather 30,000 light years away, an important piece of information embedded within us from as soon as we start learning about our solar system. But, before going down as one of the most historic men in science, he had lived a life as interesting as the concepts he had explored. Born in Nashville, Missouri on November 2nd of 1885, Harlow Shapley was the son of a locally known farmer, as well as school teacher, Willis Shapley, and his mother, Sarah Stowell. Harlow, attending a local schoolhouse, received a basic fifth-grade level of education.
