The poem "Kindness" by Naomi Shihab Nye speaks about how you experience kindness and what it really is. The main point in this poem is that in order to experience people's kindness you need to experience hurt, sorrow, and loneliness. The author says that when you loose everything and have no one or thing that when kindness comes along it lifts you up "and then goes with you everywhere/ like a shadow or a friend" (33-34). When portraying this message the author uses a sad but hopeful tone to send the message she wants to say. This tone helps portray the message because you can feel how sad someone is when they are lonely and they have nothing.

Symbols were the major key that allowed this book to become significant to me. Living in a cold, cruel world really makes you hesitant to trust anyone and after reading Invisible Man, Ellison allowed me to put myself in the narrator’s shoes by his use of symbols, lessons presented, and
CHAPTER 9 – LOSE AND LEARN “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Because it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ― Maya Angelou, American memoirist, poet, and civil rights activist Oftentimes, people go through life’s troubles.

Even when he 's filled with determination, he would sometimes still lose his direction, this for me correlates to Strakhov 's quote about "life in theory versus life in practice.

The stoics philosopher believed in life, many obstacles will be thrown our way that are not within our control. In many cases, these incidents can make one’s life difficult-whether it be by death, illness, unemployment or a natural disaster.
