Personification in writing allows the reader to truly connect with the object that the being personified. I conjecture that that is the reason Emerson chose to personify nature throughout his essay. It permitted the reader to truly understand the highlation of their bond with nature. Emerson, in the final paragraph of his long essay expresses that, “Yet it is certain that the power to produce this delight does not reside in nature, but in man, or in harmony of both.” Emerson personifies nature as having the power to create pleasure , similar to a human. In the quote I gathered that Emerson was trying to emphasize that nature has the ability to generate happiness, just like a human being can.
Professor Girard claims that Emerson is not transcendentalist and he brings some reasons to admit this idea. He says that because Emerson had no system who was more poet than philosopher. He asserts that due to Emerson rationalism, he did not allow reason to come up and many more reasons. This animosity shows itself when Emerson in one of his interview mentioned �they are not good citizen�� Girard believes that transcendentalism has religious aspects but he cannot deny that transcendentalism has philosophical aspects as well. He says England has two distinct phase in which first one is up to 1835 and then the second phase started.
Envy is an aspect of humanity that has been approached from many perspectives. In the “Rambler” by Samuel Johnson, the author took the stance that envy is a terrible and purposeless entity that serves only to degrade the quality of life. He analyzed the cause and effects of envy, how it relates to human error, and the consequences it is tied to. To emphasize the true impact of envy, he described the patterns in which he observed it as it manifested around him in his day-to-day life. In this passage, through use of elevated diction, metaphor and personification, and repetition, Johnson made clear his view of envy.
In the essay Nature by Ralph Waldo Emerson, the author believes that nature is a wonderful being, it is to be revered, and that nature is better than most people. Emerson conveys this attitude through the use of figurative language, comparing, and contrasting. Mainly, Emerson uses personification to represent nature as a living, breathing thing that is wiser than many humans. In addition, Emerson uses comparisons to show that only wise men know not to show a mean appearance, but this is a concept that nature easily grasps. Finally, Emerson uses contrasting to show that children can connect to nature easier than adults due to their simplistic outlook on life.
In this quote, Emerson means that there will always be things that people will learn but they will not truly learn until they try and either fail or succeed. This relates to this topic because in order to learn from experiences, people have to try it for
Most people don 't think I 'm that self-conscious so they usually joke with me, but I actually take it quite seriously most of the time. It 's not that I 'm ashamed of my appearance, it 's that sometimes I think that my skin color with stop me from making friends in some cases. I 'm being totally honest too. I think that people will just judge me no matter what my personality is like. For example, I will refuse under any circumstances share the names of the following people, but when I was in gym my friend and I over-heard them talking bad about me.
A pleasant morning to all of you. Thank you for being here listening to me. Today, I am going to talk about racial discrimination. Can you imagine that you are being discriminated because of who you are? For instance, imagine that you still cannot be promoted in your jobs even you are brilliant at it, or you are being mocked and ignored at school because of the color of your skins, religions or disabilities.
One of the points that stood out the most to me was that even though not everyone is necessarily a racist person, everyone inherently holds prejudices. Although I’d like to believe that I am inclusive and not discriminatory, the reality is that I am still prejudiced and that I still discriminate others based on their appearance even though I don’t show it blatantly. Growing up in an Asian household, my parents taught me to be careful of certain
