Another quote, “But I built my perfect nest, and it's ‘bout to fall apart again and again and then i just make it twice as high” shows his optimism and how failure won't stop him from accomplishing his goals. Most of the metaphors and lyrics were meant to show Watsky's personality- the theme of the song. Some of the quotes represent optimism or a will to succeed. A different
Overall, the story displays how one act of kindness ultimately changes the world for the better. The characters in the tale are examples of how people today should live their lives. They can relate to the majority of people today because sometimes people make poor choices and do not know what the right path is when trying to figure out what to do next. The characters all had the option to do what benefits them the most. Rather than being selfish, they all did the right thing to do and did not what benefited them but what was best for the other
Have you ever been hopeful for something better? You would do anything to make that one thing in your life better. Some people are like that and do whatever they can do to make it happen and some people simply just hope for it to happen there whole life. You will never understand why other people are hopeful for what they are hopeful for. It’s like always wanting more than you have and you have to do something big about it to make the littlest thing happen.
I believe this letter will keep the bond between these three characters forever strong, and supportive of each other. Ponyboy also realizes that both brothers are equally cared for by Darry, in the beginning of the book Ponyboy felt he never earned the same respect as Soda, but the letter changed that. The quote "You hurt the ones you love the most" definitely relates to the relationship of Darry and Ponyboy. In my opinion you could see a different side of Ponyboy after he read the letter, there was almost a sence of light, and happiness I 've never seen, especially during a crisis.
Because, “Things were rough all over, but it was better of that way. That way you could tell the other guy was human too.” (118) This shows that wherever Pony ends up going, it’s going to be rough everywhere. But at least if he stays with his brothers he would be with people who love him and care about him whereas if he was put in the system there’s no telling what would happen.
(Hinton 12) This quote represents Darryh teaching and mentoring Ponyboy in the ways of life. He wants to protect his little brothers and thus he gives them advice hoping that one day, they’ll be able to reach their potential. “ He mumbled something drowsily. ‘Listen, kiddo, when Darry hollers at you...
Auriana Hollister @02823670 Between the World and Me “Between the World and Me” offered a powerful message that would allow for the reader to analyze their perspective of life. One of Coates powerful messages, that I received, from “Between the World and Me” is that there is a value in struggling, but no guarantee of survival (Ta-Nehisi Coates). For me, this is the most influential because it shows that not everyone has the blessing of making it out of their “struggle” and changing their story to success becoming some sort of success story. To go further in depth, “there is a value in struggling” (Ta-Nehisi Coates) speaks an enormous amount of volume itself. This statement can correlate to numerous people by showing the different outlooks they have on life and the way they value insignificant things.
“Stumbling on Happiness”, authored by Daniel Gilbert, is a book that will quite possibly change the way you think and look at with just about everything. Through perception and cognitive biases, people imagine the future poorly, in particular what will make them happy. I chose to read this book because as I go day-to-day, I want to do everything in my power to be happy, and do things happily. Making each and everything that I do have a meaning, or a reason for doing it. Many people think that they know what makes them happy, or what they have to do to make them happy.
When Vincent from the movie says “ They use to say a child conceived in love has a greater chance of happiness.” (Gattaca). We can clearly see that this society still values the physical relationship with one another. This quote shows how they still have kids with one another and still value love and emotions. But when the director from
As if I had just found this great treasure, something that will charge me up like electricity! (Thank you Ellie!) Enough to have me completely mesmerized, and therefore having the ability to bring me to ecstasy! Second, you may think that I’m living in La La Land (laughing out loud!)
The American Dream has been a great motivator for many. Lennie and George 's version of the American Dream keeps them going while at the same time, it keeps them as friends. The American Dream, many people chased it... but what actually was The American Dream?
This quote is very important to me because there has been many times in my life that I was to afraid to take a risk, yes I may have made the safe choice but what if I would have had the courage to do the hard thing? Where would be my career or relationship’s be? I think that I can live a better life with less regrets and more adventure, in the future I will try to face my fear of failing and purse my personal legend. Just like Santiago kept pursuing his destiny even though it would have been so easy to give up just like the crystal merchant, Santiago was rewarded in the end with a great adventure, knowledge and worldly treasures. To finish my story Andrew and Jonathan both went to collage, jonathans fear of failing in baseball got to him and he thought he would complete collage and not get drafted into the major league and be left without a job or career, so he choked and his baseball career suffered, and he never made it to the majors.
Fortune Cookie “Hope is a hop skip and jump away, hop to it.” The quote is trying to state that hope is technically all around but it is our job not only to find it but to go after it to make it a reality. I also believe to obtain this hope you must work hard to find it. Hope is the thing that keeps humans, me moving in times of adversity, sorrow and even happiness.
This leaves reader disappointed and wanting more because they wanted winston to succeed and live happily ever after with Julia as the rebel against big brother but that doesn’t end up happening. This quote gives a perfect summary of Winston when the book
It is like achieving success, you have that feeling where you think you’ve done enough for your family and yourself and at the end you are all happy. Being in the pursuit of happiness takes a lot of criticism by people who want to put you down because they see you doing better than them. People will always tend to bring you down, but that it up to you if you are going to let them. Pursuit of happiness is doing something you want to do, not what other people tell you just because they think it is good for you. It is all about your happiness, success, and supporting your
