As children, Amir and Hassan enjoy reading under their favorite tree, but Amir’s favorite part is when they come “across a big word that [Hassan does not] know” and he has the opportunity to “expose his ignorance” (Hosseini 28). Amir craves so badly to be superior that he
Hassan would stand up for Amir when Amir would get bullied by Assef; however, Amir would not do the same for Hassan. Even though Amir treated him different they was still close friends. Amir and Hassan will spend a lot of time with each other when Amir came home from school. They would go to the pomegranate tree and eat pomegranates as Amir read stories to Hassan. One summer day Amir craved, “Amir and Hassan the sultans of Kabul” (Hosseini 27).
Point 1: Acknowledge: Pride can drive a person to help others. First example from short story supporting the opposite point (page #): “Finally one day, after many weeks of practicing, he (Doodle) stood alone for a few seconds… I grabbed him in my arms and hugged him, our laughter pealing through the swamp like a ringing bell.” (Hurst - 172) Explanation of the quotation and how it supports the opposite view: The narrator was proud of Doodle, and because of that pride, he helped Doodle learn to walk. Transitional word or phrase using point 2: Pride can also motivate a person to reach personal goals. Second example from short story supporting the opposite point (page #): “They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” (Hurst - 173) Explanation of quotation and how it supports the opposite view: The narrator’s pride made him teach Doodle how to walk, but for himself and not his brother.

A popular activity in Afghanistan is kite running, were the two make the perfect team, until one day a disturbing incident occurs. Soon after Amir moves away to American with Baba but the distance and time does not change the level of guilt within himself. Hosseini’s first line of
Despite, the contrast of social hierarchy, Amir and Hassan are best friends. Amir goes to school while Hassan does chores and when Amir comes back from school, they hang out and climbed a pomegranate tree, eat fruits and Amir would read to Hassan (27). But, the part that struck me as important was that Amir took one Ali’s kitchen knives and went to the pomegranate tree and carved “Amir & Hassan, the sultans of Kabul” (27). A Sultan is a ruler of a state or country. Amir reveals his true affection for Hassan in this act because by carving in that statement, he believes in his heart they would both become affluent, revered and together in ruling in the future or at least in his imagination despite of Hassan’s social status.
Being unselfish can promote happiness, not only for someone else but for yourself. If you unselfishly give something to someone who is on the selfish side, you will not only bring them happiness, it can show love. Having love for someone as a motherly-type figure can sometimes result in the motherly figure wanting to give the “child” things to take care of them. In The Giving Tree, Shel Silverstein uses the tree to symbolise giving and love that the tree has for the boy like a mother. In the story The Giving Tree, the tree acts as a motherly figure to the boy showing love and support.
The true meaning of Remembrance day Most people think Remembrance day is is just a celebration that we celebrate in the eleventh month on the eleventh day in the eleventh hour. And that it is a day we have assemblies in our schools and carry poppies with us, but boy are they wrong. Remembrance day means a lot more than that. Remembrance day is truly a day we take out some of our time and appreciate the thousands of soldiers that sacrificed their lives so we could be who we are today.This soldiers risked all they had so we will be able to call our country a free land. On this day most schools have 1-5min of silence.During this moment we are not expected to be thinking about what we will be doing after school or be waiting until the bell finally rings so we could head out for recess.
“Family- like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.” This famous quote describes a theme in Chaim Potok’s book, The Chosen. Although the friendship between Reuven and Danny showed apparently, the family relationships also had a very strong say in the book. Loyalty displayed by both boys towards their fathers is evinced throughout the book. Although each family had their ups and downs, in the end, family became the most important thing. Danny even defended his dad’s style of teaching in front of his best friend, Reuven.
The tree in the story symbolizes junior in such a way that it seems the tree is him. Rushdie is great at placing little symbols for the reader to catch which really adds to the view of the story. No matter how big or small a symbol is, it will always mean something. Junior and senior can be seen as many symbols throughout the story, such as the struggle between life and death, green and gold. Junior and senior always pass this tree one their walk, but fail to realize the trees growth is a clock for their lives.
His admiration for the lime-tree bower contrasts with his original hatred for being stuck under the tree. With the use of romanticism and different language techniques, Coleridge shows how powerful inner journeys can be and its capability to teach individuals more about the world around
The poetic language and structure contain underlying symbols of the beauty and innocence of the soldiers’ past. This is suggested by the colors of the “banner” that the trees are compared to: white, red, and gold. Conventionally, the color white symbolizes love and passion; red symbolizes love and passion; gold symbolizes abundance and
Another thing we really liked, which made the choice to pick this song easy was that flow of the song (word to word) was very smooth and made the song a lot easier to listen to. Audience People listen to music to have fun and relax along with many other reasons, but this song is different from what other music is like. It teaches a lesson to the audience, how to be kind to each other and how to not be mean or mad at each other, also
Many people that go out in the wilderness say they get a sense of relief and freedom. Many of them do not need the everyday stuff and live just fine without them. They don’t need fancy new sports car or a new TV because they much rather be out exploring nature. If people have the courage to turn against their habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living they will find the joy in different experiences easier. People that are fascinated by the wild seem to enjoy a lot of the simpler things in life.Even though they do not have luxury things they still seem to be happier with their lives than most of the people.
