However, it is with the help of these dreams that people are able to grow and overcome these struggles. Going back to what Langston Hughes voiced, it is now very obvious why people without dreams are like birds without wings. That is, a bird without wings will never be able to move from one place to another. Likewise in the case of the human with a dream he would be equal to a bird with wings because in this case that person would be able to get to places in his life. Given these points, do you think that people such as Martin Luther King Jr. would have been able to fight for African American rights if he hadn’t set dreams and goals for himself amidst his struggles?
I was just trying to do the right thing and protect innocent people from bullies out to profit on their weakness. Percy: I see that now and I understand that that makes you a hero. You know, I didn’t ask for or even want the powers I got just because of who my dad is. When I first realized that I had them they just made me feel different and I would have done anything to give them back. I was different enough already.
What you lack is belief. If bringing down the wall would require you to fly, you must believe that you can fly. Otherwise, when the decisive moment comes, you will surely discover you have no wings.” This particular passage made me look back at the moments where I refused to do something because I thought that I do not have the certain capability to do that or this certain task. I honestly confess that Alexa’s lack of belief is similar to what I feel when I am not confident enough to show what I’ve got. Sometimes, I feel scared when thinking of someone is relying to me because of the responsibility that they put upon my shoulder, like
This man must have special powers if he is able to do such thing. This man must be an angel. It is something impossible what this man does. When he first arrives he is not able to use his wings and he does not eat at all. But he stays alive and he even gets to fly away.
He begins from questions of complication and intertwinement in other’s identities to answers of understanding and acceptance of who he is culturally and personally. Even if that he is invisible, he knows he still needs upholds his responsibility in society: “Perhaps that’s my greatest social crime, I’ve overstayed my hibernation since there’s a possibility that even an invisible man has a socially responsible role to play” (581). All of his experiences lead to a universal, underlying main idea that to find out who we are as individuals will enable us to move
Without evolution, there is no saying why an intelligent designer would give an organism a feature it doesn’t need such as wings for a flightless bird. An intelligent designer would give these organisms other useful appendages other than wings since they aren’t used for flying. From an evolutionary perspective, the ancestors of flightless birds may have consumed too much energy from flying that they might’ve been wasting energy. This energy could be used for other things like survival and reproducing (fitness). Coyne suggested that
Even with the help of special suits, I can’t teleport to save my life. Except for my disappointing teleportation skills, I did well in my training. That’s what I thought at least. Chuck was constantly telling me about another one of my downfalls though. This was my impulsiveness and carelessness in everything I do.
Maybe I do not have the ability to be as mystical as I would enjoy to be, but that hasn’t stopped me from trying to learn what I want to do later in life. All the typical days at school, conflicts, and what I do outside of school do not have the ability to stun me and render me useless to myself. Life has so many different endings that it is practically infinite, while many search for the end, some still look for a greater meaning than what we know as common sense. Even if you were to fail, you will have to learn from the mistake and improve so you can prevent
