The Importance of Respect In Chaim Potok’s The Chosen, Reuven Malter, Danny, and Reb Saunders are three distinct characters that display their amazing, God-given characteristic of respect towards not only their family but also close friends. “Show respect even to those who don’t deserve it; not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours.” (Dave Willis) Derived from this quote is a good challenger and motivator to people of all religions to show respect and gratitude towards people who might not even deserve it. Reuven Malter displays respect toward his good friend, Danny Saunders, when he deeply studies the writings of psychoanalysis. Danny Saunders also treats not only his friend, Reuven Malter with respect of his religion, but also his father who normally strays away from speaking to his son. Reb Saunders, the father of Danny, has the job of a Jewish rabbi, and must constantly respect his son’s keen interest in topics other than religion.
Saying this, Loeb states that what motivates people to be kind is the desire to respect themselves, which all ties back to living a rich life. So, is it possible to be kind to others and still not be qualified as a good citizen, or does a person simply have to be active in social standings? What exactly is a good citizen? When it comes to the topic of what it means to be a good person or a good citizen, most of us will agree that it means to be kind, thoughtful, or helpful to others. Where this argument usually ends, however, is with the question of the person, if they are truly being kind or just having a face.
Comparative analysis of Aristotelian Equality In Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle asserts one cannot live a virtuous and fulfilling life without the presence of a friend, despite the presence of the essential goods. In addition to his point, he states the best friendships are built upon a true equality which in turn builds on the mutual contributions and goodness of the character of the individuals within a friendship. Without equality, Aristotle argues, friendships tend to fall apart either due to eventual conflicts of interest or the friendship outliving it usefulness. However, some might argue the best friendships do not need any equality among individuals and can still produce the benefits of a Aristotle definition of the best friendship. Although this argument suggests the absence of equality produces a better friendship and life, I will defend Aristotle’s view by presenting textual evidence from of Nicomachean Ethics proving otherwise.
Elizabeth F. Cohen’s article, “Family Resemblances”, seems to be written in response to Hursthouse’s “Good and Bad Family”. In it, Cohen argues against Hursthouse’s conception of a good family, for which Hursthouse believes a good family is one whose members love and support one another. However, Cohen argues that family is something more complex than what Hursthouse has believed to be. In “Family Resemblances”, Cohen shows that Hursthouse’s view on how to be a good family is much too simple. Hursthouse believes that child-rearing constitutes to a good family, that a child is able to glue a family together.
Commencement Speech According to the dictionary kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. This seems quite adequate as a description, however, in our modern society, we are easily caught up in our ravels for success, for happiness, for love. Often so that we solemnly forget that leading a happy life is usually not possible without the kindness of others. It might not be possible to truly define what kindness is, even though the dictionary makes an attempt, and perhaps it is not even necessary. However, it is definitely something we notice when it goes missing.
What do you think the meaning of true friendship is, maybe it 's knowing that you trust a certain person with any secret or physical object, somebody who would take a bullet for you, or maybe it 's somebody that you 've grown up with all your life. Everybody has their own definition of ¨true friendship.¨ I personally believe that true friendship is when two people can trust each other with just about anything, they let you succeed and fail on your own, but they always help you when it is most important. I dislike it when people say a true friend doesn 't ¨snitch¨ or lets you copy off their paper for test or more important assignment. This shows that they don 't see the other person as a friend, and more as a ¨get out of jail free¨ card. Some people would argue by saying that it shows the person’s willingness to help, but I believe that the only thing you’re helping them with is failing to prepare for responsibilities.
I assume that Huck looked to Jim as a father from time to time however at that point reviewed the unforgiving reality of how society saw Jim. Toward the beginning of the novel, Jim is depicted as clear and trusting, to the point of being easily influenced. These attributes are not balanced over the beginning of the novel; rather, they are fleshed out and end up being positives as opposed to negatives. Jim 's straightforward nature winds up being of sound judgment, and he generally picks the right route for him and Huck to go. I figure this accompanies with
Running Head: APOLOGY STRATEGIES 1 APOLOGY STRATEGIES 12 Name: Institution: Course: Date: Introduction Apology is termed as a key character that humans possess; it is always human to apologize and when one fails to do so it is always doubted whether the person is human or not. However in order to apologize one must always have a strategy (Blum-Kulka, 1989). It is not just so obvious that one would always accept any apology that is made to them but rather whenever an apology is made with a proper strategy then such an apology will end up being satisfying. Some people tend to be soft in apologizing and also do take their time to be able to apologize while others take the shortest period of time and also use the simplest means for them to apologize as well (Olshatin, 1983). TYPES OF APPOLOGY STRATEGIES There are six types of apology strategies that are commonly used by people when apologizing.
Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well. I think the way he explains the spot on Georgiana was the best way to attract the readers because the reader gets some imagination in his mind. The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband. The author in this way wants to say that the thing that when some do not have a thing then he likes that but when we get those things, then we do not feel comfortable with them and we want some improvement. Aylmer is the philosopher and that is why he always thinks the things should be just perfect.
Huck proves his friendship to Jim with this small, but the very courageous action of not sending the letter and ripping it up instead. In some ways, the letter is a symbol of friendship and loyalty between Huck and Jim. Huck is learning to follow his instincts, telling the truth, and being a great friend to Jim. This essay won’t feed the world the usual silliness, so instead here is something different. Everything that has happened in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a lesson from the past for the present, and future.
As much as he tries to downplay the fact that he does not care about Jane by using diction like ‘hell’ and ‘bastard’, but he truly cares. The point is that one should constantly be proud of who he/she is and not try to hide it. One should be proud of being a good friend, be proud of who he/she is, be proud of oneself every time he/she makes a good decision, be proud of all the small things one has accomplished, be proud of one’s unique strengths, and do not leave it to another person to make one feel like ‘he/his is enough’; leave it to oneself. Also, there are advantages to this. By being proud of who one is, one’s confidence skyrockets, one becomes honest and likeable.
He also told others how to remain friends, how to solve problems between themselves not letting anger and jealousy interfere with true friendship. His motto became, “Don’t fight, make it right, talk it out.” Sometimes friends may have difficulty expressing their true feelings in situations or circumstances that may arise in their lives. The key is to express it verbally and calmly. Talk things out with friends, family or whoever it may be and come to an understanding together about any matter. You will find it is a lot easier than fighting.
I understand this more after reading my LPI 360 assessment. Although, the feedback was mostly positive I have identified ways to become a better more valuable leader. In the numbers portion I received pretty low scores in finding ways to celebrate accomplishments and overtly praising subordinates for their hard work. This resonated with me because I have felt unappreciated before and I d o not want my subordinates to think what they are doing is not important or appreciated. Other tools I will use to try different leadership approaches will include the DiSC and MBTI survey.
The father of the narrator, Atticus Finch, has become a model of morality for many readers, as well as an example of an honest lawyer. He shows human courage, which gives us the idea that Atticus is a common and inconspicuous man he is represented from the eyes of the children, who are getting some heat from all his actions. There is an idea in the novel that children have a sense of justice and become prejudice only under the influence of others. This idea comes from a lawyer Atticus, a man of honor, who is doing good although he isn’t expected to. His arguments for heroism are “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.
