The passage of time is the only certainty in life, and for many people it is horrifying. Nothing can stop time from continuing day after day, and as one of the the common experiences of all people, is a common theme in literature. Shakespeare’s Macbeth briefly touches on the subject in one of the most famous passages from Shakespeare. After Macbeth drives away all of his friends, he loses all of his happiness because he believes time will make everything he has done insignificant, and no one brings joy to his life to convince him otherwise. When people commit evil acts, they may no longer be able to see the good in life.
It shows that love can last forever and will always miss their true love. I believe that this is a realist view on love; if your true love passes away you will always remember them and never forget the way they looked and made you feel. I think that is something not everyone will experience, but a few of them will, and it can haunt them for the rest of their lives. They will always think of that person, and they might not be able to feel the same way with someone else as they did with their first true love. “Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.” H. Jackson Brown,
Family Is Worth It My whole life I have heard it said that family is everything and people would do anything to keep them safe. When I was younger I would say there 's no way i 'll give it up just like that, I have so many years to live and many things to do and learn. I have now realized that I actually agree with dying for someone that I really care about if the outcome is making them live longer. While it is true that I would die for an important principle, it does not necessarily follow that I would give up my life for something small such as objects that are meaningless and could be easily replaced. In the play “The Crucible,” John Proctor had to make a tough decision whether to lie about doing witchcraft and live or to be accused of witchcraft and die, but have a good relationship with God.
He 's not working towards anything or giving his life meaning, thus if he 's not really living, he 's basically already dead. Not until forced to confront his own mortality, when his life is literally counting down in front of him, does the importance of what he wants out of life take center-stage. After this, Raymond K. Hessel is allowed to live as long as he works towards his goal, as long as he tries to seize the life he wants. Without the realization of his own mortality, without knowing that his entire existence can be gone any moment, he would have continued to live a static life. Through this confrontation he is motivated to end this stagnation, and get his life truly

Throughout the novel, readers find out that Daisy has been consuming Gatsby’s thoughts for five years. Throughout these years, Gatsby tries to convince himself that he can go back to the time where things are simple and Daisy had no husband and no child. He does this with a clouded way of thinking.

To him that goal of not reaching is like dying because he won 't stop he believe he has no purpose without her and the light i believe if she doesn 't stay with him it will disappear but as long as it 's there he will continue to be loving because he can 't imagine is life without her and all the money he has and opportunities he has don 't matter to him because daisy is all he wants the light is what he loves the most and he will continue to look at that light as a source to tell him to keep going.

Some would argue that love conquers all and that the lack of trust should not dissolve a marriage. However, that is not the case in Othello’s marriage and in most marriages worldwide. When their trust was broken, Othello turned against Desdemona and was unable to see her as the person he once married. In the beginning of the play Othello tells Iago Desdemona had became” [his] soul’s joy,” since they met and believes their marriage will last (II.I.200). Even though Othello believe Desdemona would be loyal to him because,” she had eyes and chose [him]” they still hadn’t been married for a long time when their trust was tested (III.III.194).However, when
When Daisy rejects Gatsby to stay with Tom, Gatsby is heart-broken; yet he refuses to let go of her. Nick states that “he was clutching at some last hope and I couldn’t bear to shake him free” (Fitzgerald 133). This shows his reluctance to let go of his obsession because, for years, he has centered his life around her. The next day, Gatsby remarks how he has not used his pool this summer. Then, right before his death, Gatsby breaks his old habits and “shouldered the mattress and started for the pool” showing that he is changing his actions and beginning to do new things (Fitzgerald 124).
Here is a example of the theme from the book “He barely liked his family-and by family he meant his older brother. Tom.” The conflict is that Benny and Tom do not have a good relationship and have grudges against each other. If you hold grudges against your family or do not have a good relationship with your family, you will have no one to fall back on and you will be by yourself. Another example of the theme from the book is “Sorry, Benny- I forgot. Point is, you got family of some kind, right?” This example shows that you will always have some type of family, even if you don’t know
“You are not finished when you lose, you are only finished when you quit”. “The task ahead of you is never as great as the strength within you”. I live by these quotes each day which shapes up of who I am. If I start something I must always finish and give it my all, whether it’s on the field and off the field. To give one-hundred percent in a game and in the classroom, that winners never quit, and quitters never win.
I will support and risk everything for is supporting our veterans. Without them, how would life be now? They risk everything for us, so why don’t we do the same for them. The WW2 generation known as the greatest generation, they are the greatest generation because no one could do what they did. Therefore, the ones lost or the ones that are living out on the street need to keep living and their stories are heard.
You may ask, "What the hell are you rambling on about this time?" Quite simple, what I had to do was keep you in my life, treat you with total respect and always be there for you for all of eternity. I know it seems like a bit much for only being one night of bonding, but that night, I put everything I had into you without knowing it. I bet everything I had on us, I was willing to lose the tiny bit of emotional and mental stability I had left for us to become what we are celebrating on this day, a couple. I know our one month anniversary isn 't the most spectacular, but just wait til we hit the one year mark, or even every year after that until we surpass the 50 or 60 year mark.
“I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn’t believe it would come and perhaps he no longer cared. If that was true he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream” ( Chapter 8). This quote is an affirmation of the loss of Jay Gatsby’s lifelong dream of winning the heart of Daisy Buchanan has now died and his identity has been taken away from him. Gatsby spent his entire life transforming himself from the poor James Gatz into tremendously wealthy Jay Gatsby, yet his motives were not self-betterment for his own benefit. Instead, Gatsby’s motivation is to make himself someone who can give Daisy the luxuries and monetary stability she desires.
Despite the trials of character, we find a way to work together at the end of the day. I cannot control who is on the varsity Tigettes, but I would not want it any other way. I consider my team “the sisters I never had” and I will love them until the day I die. That doesn 't mean that we don 't argue. When you spend so much time with people that have such drastically different personalities, it can get tense.
