In the text he says “Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron” (Emerson p.3). This quote is saying how you have to trust yourself and that's the key part of life. The rhetorical appeal that is being used to describe the theme is logos because he is trying to convince the audience that the idea of believing in yourself is very important and it’s one of the biggest things in life and it influences the reader to trust and listen to what Emerson has to say. Another example of Emerson using rhetorical appeals to develop the theme is says “ There is a class of persons to whom by all spiritual affinity I am bought and sold; for them I will go to prison”( Emerson p.6) .Here Emerson is saying that he will go to jail and take whatever punishment for you if you have high spirits in relieving yourself and believe in what you are doing. He emphasizes the rhetorical use of logos because this is how he is trying to convince the readers to trust him and what he is
In this grand poem, Whitman glorifies the unity of all people and life. He embraces the geographical diversity as well as the diversity of culture, work, as well as sexuality or beliefs. Whitman’s influence sets American dreams of freedom, independence, and self-fulfillment, and changes them for larger spiritual meaning. Whitman appreciates hard work as well as being simple and non-egotistical. His major ideas are things such as soul, good health, as well as the love of nature.
In the poem, “Oppression”, by Jimmy Santiago Baca, Baca demonstrates many examples of the hope and belief throughout the poem. Baca mentions to the audience that there will always be obstacles which one must prevail before they reach the top. Therefore help the readers recognize that in order for emancipation, one must never stop believing in themselves. An example of hope would be when Baca states,” And always, always, remembering you are human.” Here he indicates that though life may put us through tough times, we must always remember that we are humans and we are capable of overcoming obstacles. Thus, don't lose faith because every human being deserves to be treated with respect.
This thought can be seen in quotes by both authors. In Emerson’s essay “Self Reliance” the reader can decipher this thought by looking at the quote “Trust thyself:Every heart vibrates to that iron string”. Within this quote Emerson emphasizes the importance of self sufficiency and singularity. You can also find examples of the same views held by Emerson in a quote from Thoreau’s “Walden”. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away”.
Dispar and the negative attitude of others pushed Equality to become determined to transform his life. He is extremely motivated to establish a world where information isn’t limited and people are able to live as they please.

In the novel A lesson Before Dying it says that you have to fight for your rights and yourself and never give up because if you keep trying changes can still happen and you will feel a sense of accomplishment in your life. Overall in the paragraph it shows that Jefferson does fight for himself as an individual , Grant does believe changes can still if he tries and harder and lastly Tante Lou sets the stage for Grant and Jefferson showing that you have to stand up for your rights. Overall I think these lessons do show that you have to stand up for yourself and be strong and never give up. Because fighting for what you believe will make the community better and inspire other people if you keep trying you will feel better about yourself and will inspire other people to do something as
In Walt Whitman’s “song of myself”, there is many reverences to himself. I am going to pick out some of the references to himself and explain what I believe that they mean to me. On the first line of the poem, “I celebrate myself, and sing myself” (Whitman 1330). Which says to me that Walt Whitman is proud out his accomplishments that he has achieved thought out his life. Even the accomplishments that were viewed as not good or not worthy of praise.
Ayn Rand gave a valuable descriptive moral for the book anthem; on being yourself and not being organized as a group. Accoringly being able to know where you belong you must learn who you are and that you aren’t forced to be just like everyone else. “The word which can never die of this earth for it is the heart of it and the meaning and the glory.. The sacred word : EGO” (Pg 105 Anthem book) Furthermore, that quote helps support my reasoning considering the fact that it TELLS you virtually the meaning right there. Talking directly about how their ego has its rise and falls.
This writing was enticed by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who thought that the collection of poems were “the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom.” Many people throughout the century noticed the ideologies that Whitman portrayed in his writings, and it is still evident today. In “Fahrenheit 451”, Ray Bradbury
Provided they are educated and guided, anyone can achieve goodness. Accordingly, following Tao is in way with nature and opposition to it causes friction in life, ultimately to be acceptable and flexible with what life brings to one. Being adaptable to changes leads to happiness but resistance brings un-satisfaction in life. Living in peace and accepting that life is an eternal binding force that persists through everything is the way of Tao. This philosophy corresponds closely with the Logos of the Roman stoics like Epictetus and Marcus
