However, their tones are different, as Jobs formally delivers the mottos, while King approaches them in a more informal tone. In Jobs commencement speech, he discusses his termination from Apple, but how he continued to work even though this significant failure in his life occurred. The following sentence after the anecdote is “Don’t lose faith” (Jobs). Jobs approaches these mottos formally and delivers them as business mottos because he is highly involved in the business world. King hypothesizes the Vassar Graduate’s potential impacts on society and the American economy, and how they cannot mess it up like the previous generation.
He has had a major effect on elementary school education through the fact that he shows children that learning to read and reading itself can be fun. In fact, National Read Across America Day is celebrated on Geisel’s birthday because of the delightful stories he has created for the children around the world. His books remain timeless, for they bring so much joy to early readers (Porter). The boringness of regular children’s books has been demolished by Dr.Seuss through his profound and clever verses (Famous Authors). He is so widely known and commemorated that he is one of the few writers to have a public statue of himself with his book characters surrounding him (Porter).
He focused specifically on the independence of the American people because he was aware that they deserved better, and that Britain was cheating them of their rights. In his essay, The Crisis #1, he directly calls out the British for who they truly are and what they were actually doing. "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;" and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty.” This sentence alone speaks right to the heart of the people, and talks on how important and dire it is that we act now, for the sake of our children, and their children’s future. His intentions were to provoke those not aware or those partially conscious of the matters and risks at stake, the country and everyone in its freedom. And that’s exactly what he did to start a revolution.
Throughout the fall semester, there have been many pieces of literature that have represented Marywood’s Core Values, teaching great lessons to every reader. One of the major pieces that was covered in the fall semester was A Good Man, written by Mark Shriver. The book is a heartwarming, non-fiction autobiography where the son of a successful politician and Kennedy relative talks about his father’s life and memories.

Living in the post-apocalyptic, Ely loses the desire for tomorrow and believes the future is nonexistent. Ely says, “People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn’t believe in that.

Isn’t it scary how one word, one look, or one moment can change everything? Tom Ziegler once said, “You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life”, yet I don’t think this is feasible to my situation because it’s impossible to earn just one good day when you’re fighting for your life every single day. No, my story isn’t about me being affected a from cancer or an unfortunate holocaust destruction such as a fire. My story is much worst and the pain will cause you to grimace in fear and sympathy. I’m Amelia Howards and this is my story.
He recounts of a quote that he has once read that has affected him for a decent parcel of his life, “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” (Jobs). This is a pretty difficult concept that individuals grasp because if it was my last day of living, then obviously I wouldn't do my normal routine. He knew that if the solution to his inquiry was no for an excess of days consecutively, then there would be a need of change in his daily routine. Full satisfaction of an individual is impossible. As individuals we are never content and are always in need of something
Ashleigh knew her dad 's not a good person.

Ashleigh has to know what her dad did to her mom for them to divorce and make her so unhappy. Furthermore, Pfeffer conveys, “In the cold stillness of the night, I could hear my father 's car keening in the distance.
I won't let nothing happen to Sonny. "”(Insert page number). Throughout the entire story every decision that Sonny makes for himself, the narrator is right there telling him why it’s a stupid idea and why he will never be able to do it. Every time the narrator tells him he can’t do something, Sonny works that much harder to achieve that goal. “He looked more helpless than ever, and annoyed, and deeply hurt.” With the narrator consistently belittling Sonny’s dreams, he drifts from his family.
How a person deals with guilt long term is what really affects their future. As said by Baba in The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, “It may not be fair, but what happens in a couple of days, even a single day, can change the course of an entire lifetime” (Hosseini, page no.131). Therefore, one should redeem oneself and should not let guilt govern their future.
