Sadly, people can pass on without leaving much of a legacy behind; questions may have gone unanswered, words could have been left unsaid. Some may say that it is okay because it will not matter in death, but it will to the people that care about you and vice versa, “whether or not we give much thought to it, everyone else we know will” (Chittester, 2008). As people often say, life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We must take advantage of the time we do have and use it as an opportunity to make it the best life we can for ourselves and those who we leave behind or come after
Slow down where you are going and eventually, you will slowly and successfully reach your destination. Teenagers should learn to live in the present and to enjoy every moment of their lives. Lots of people miss true happiness not because they did not find a source of happiness, but they never stopped to enjoy it. Life flies by therefore primarily focus on the present and take a look at your
Over the course of Shakespeare's, Romeo and Juliet; Juliet has proved herself to be a round dynamic character. In the beginning of the play, was a more independent character and thought about herself only and not another individual. When she met Romeo and married him all her actions were to please Romeo and not herself entirely. Before she would put herself first but not that she is putting Romeo before everything shows how she has changed proving she is a dynamic character. She went against her better judgement and took the potion that could have been actually lethal just to be with Romeo even though they haven't known each other for long.
On the other hand, “A Small, Good thing” uses slow pacing in text but fast pacing in time to increase tension during time sensitive circumstances. However, the trauma lasts a period of days despite the overall shorter timeframe of the story. In the text, the trauma was not the car accident but rather the time the characters spent hoping for a good prognosis, and thus the parents were “waiting with him until he died” (Carver 225). The text depicts a less violent and spontaneous type of trauma which is a strong contrast to Lavender’s death. Because of this, the parents are allowed to be more expressive of their emotional reactions while they struggle to return to what is normal.
Conclusion: Thesis Statement: One may not always be motivated to do something. One can not let the lack of motivation stop them from completing something, but need to find extra motivation like Morrison did in, Author/Title: In Stephen King’s story Quitters Inc. Closing Statement: The process of writing an essay, studying for tests and doing presentations is all part of a teenagers life, and one must not let everything slide due to the lack of motivation but find extra motivation to finish these tasks. One must take things slowly and complete little tasks in life. After all, everyone wants to succeed in
Communication is an essential part of living, when people are born the first thing they learn to do is to communicate. Everyday communication is a thing that cannot be avoided, communication will always be apart of life no matter how much it is tried to be avoided, it will always be apart of the essentials of life. However communication is more than just talking, sending letters, or calling people over the phone, it is more than a simple conversation, it is a connection between life and death. In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, communication is critically important as it is the the main cause between the two main protagonists. From a far standpoint, lack of communication can become a massive problem for such a simple task, many consequences
How can either love the other when they know nothing about each other except what he/she looks like and how well he/she kisses? They haven’t had enough time or interactions to build a true and solid love. While there is no ideal length of time that has to occur before a couple can call their feelings love, they must have time to establish that emotional and mental connection. As we learn by Romeo and Juliet’s example, Friar Lawrence was correct--”those who run will fall”. Couples must take their time and get to know each other thoroughly before they take the “next step”--whether that might be becoming intimate or getting married.
One may think Greek values don’t apply to modern day because they lived so long ago, when in reality these morals still play a role in our everyday lives. The importance of patience needs to be realized by every individual. Patience in life can push one to reach their dreams they never thought were possible. Life is not about living in the future or in the past it is about accepting the present moment. In this modern day, it is easy to get irritated very quickly over minor things like a someone walking slow in the hallway, watching commercials, or even waiting for someone to text you back.
I manage to get my work done on time, between sports and hanging out with friends, but I know I am obligated to set time aside to do homework and simply have a bit of alone time. If I do not set aside said time, then my dreams would be nearly unattainable without question and I would not be able to enjoy my life to the fullest, and thus I would live out a depressing, miserable, and mundane life. The intent in what I am trying to say is that everyone deserves a second chance, no matter who you are, where you are, or what you have done. Don't let anyone make fun of you for trying your best because sometimes that is all that anyone can do for themselves. Everyone deserves a “Tabula Rasa” (clean slate) at least once in their lives to make everything suitable for themselves and the important people around them, especially if the only people around him/her are familiar figures.
when I think about my twenties and what a foolish girl I was and how I would give over my power to men who really didn't mean me well, but now I hold no grudges against them either because I realized I'm the one who gave over the power, because I didn't know any better and now that I know better, I know I don't have to do that again it's one of the most powerful Lessons any of us can ever
J.C said that he would and explained that sober living has positively impacted his life and feels that without alcohol he can accomplish many things such as moving out on his own and obtaining a full time job. Writer encouraged J.C to keep that frame of mind and remain positive. J.C did mention that he felt anxious but would not explain to writer why he felt this way. J.C mentioned that he felt better and less nervous after talking. Writer encouraged J.C to come with her with any other concerns or even just to talk and J.C agreed that he would do
That was definitely the challenging pressure I was putting on myself. Their support slowly turned into pressure because they were all going out of there ways to help me achieve my goals, so the pressure of graduating and achieving my goals was 100% more. I think that the main reason to pursue my career was getting behind, and the pressure of not letting my family down was leading the way. Taking the first step of applying to San Francisco State was a big one to take. I was committing myself to giving my all to accomplish my goals, but it felt satisfying.
(Albom 103)¨ I agree with Morrie every emotion people go through doesn´t last and we have to learn how to detach so we can live our lives happy and how we want to. One time my parents were going through stuff which lead into them getting separated most of the time that would affect me. But then I got over it because life goes on and you have to enjoy the time you have with the people you love. By me doing this I realized I threw myself into different emotions that would benefit me and I changed my life. Another lesson that Morrie
