Moreover, without the interruptions of others Thoreau was able to be alone with his thoughts and find his true self. Thoreau also believes that nature represent the divinity and therefore God was all around him. He was, as a result, able to expand his spiritual beliefs and form a deeper connection to
It’s not effective because it doesn’t use the Rhetorical Appeals like Ethos and Logos but, it does include Pathos which makes it somewhat good. Pathos is a Rhetorical Appeal that the commercial does portray in many forms. It’s commonly known as the emotional appeal. For example in the ad, the old man misses his past as an astronaut.

In Anthem Equality’s view of morality strongly coincides with Ayn Rand’s views in the excerpts from her other writings, but is very different from the institutions, practices and officials from the society in which he lives. Throughout the novel, Equality
Since then, he has made many songs of different tones and meanings. Many of his songs and actions align immensely with transcendentalist ideals, including appreciation, independence, individualism, nonconformity, and being one with nature. One transcendentalist ideal that Young represents is appreciation. Emerson used the example of stars to explain how important appreciation is, saying, “If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown” (Nature 498).

Unification with the nature is also important for Thoreau. In the chapter, Solitude, he mentions about this unification. In the forest, he was suddenly “sensible of such sweet and beneficent society in Nature” (177). Now, his “whole body is one sense, and imbibes delight through every pore” (174).

There is goodness in everyone’s heart, which the old beggar hopes to bring out from all of the villagers. This virtue is what connects humanity together and makes our souls inseparably linked; it is Nature’s law that every soul is linked because humanity is created from Nature, which is pure and good.

In contrast, I believe the real ‘beauty’of nature is the vast capacity for wide-ranging possibilities of ‘truth’that people try to explore. In my essay, I will define both beauty and truth, also explain how the exploration of nature by scientists lead us to truth and beauty
Why all natural creation exists has two reasons. The first reason is to support human being to survive on the earth.

For example the day following the night and the night following the day, the rainy season following the dry season. All these regularity of nature is a sign that pointing to something beyond itself, which is God, and the creation is a synonymous with god’s mercy.
From Emerson’s nature, to Thoreau’s Walden, one can trace the developing concerns regarding human interaction and connection with nature. The discourse continued in the writing and general speaking of renowned naturalists and writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century such as John Muir (1838-1914), and Aldo Leopold (1887-19948). It happens that much of what was written, discussed and actually concluded primarily took the forms of reference conservation and habitat preservation instead of environmental quality, environmental awareness and environmental literacy that are the main concerns of today (UNEP,
