Aside from a few words, her speech was very easy to understand.For example when she states, “knows the parameters of a happy life when all it knows is the homogenization of human experience.”(299). Terms like “homogenization” cause the speech to become harder to read because unless the audience knows what the term means there is a disconnect between speaker and audience. Throughout the speech, Quindlen’s tone remained very playful and joyful. To connect with her audience, she had to approach the situation in a manner that connects with her audience. In the text she states “give up the backpack.
In Emily Brontё’s Wuthering Heights, the spiritual reassessment and moral reconciliation that the characters develop over the course of the novel demonstrates that those who are willing to accept and embrace change will be able to grow and mature as individuals and will ultimately achieve peace with themselves. To begin, the proposed marriage between Catherine Heathcliff and Hareton Earnshaw demonstrates that only those who put aside the prejudices that they hold towards others will be able to achieve personal growth and happiness. For example, in the initial phases of Catherine and Hareton’s relationship, Catherine makes fun of Hareton for his attempts at learning how to read. When Hareton excitedly says to Catherine that “[he] can read yon, now” (Brontё 210), she
Cambridge Dictionary’s definition of hope is “the feeling that something desired can be had or will happen”. Katherine Boo addresses how hope affects the people of Annawadi, a slum near Mumbai, in her book Behind the Beautiful Forevers. Hope may seem irrelevant in places as poor and corrupt, but it inspires Annawadians to follow their dreams of a better life. By encouraging them to chase their goals, hope mainly has a positive impact on the people of Annawadi, but is damaging when given up on. The positive benefits of hope are most clearly seen as the character Asha achieves her goal and creates a better life for her and her family.
Positive Thinking and Conflict There are many times in one’s life where a simple positive gesture can make their day. Anne, in “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank along with Louise Ogawa in “Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, display attitudes that not only helped themselves, but gave other people hope. Though some might argue that positivity during a conflicting situation won’t help resolve anything, having a positive outlook on a negative situation can help someone solve their disagreement swiftly and efficiently. The best way someone can respond to conflict is with a positive attitude because it can be a stress reliever, give tremendous benefits to their physical health, and make others around them happier. Having a positive attitude can make people less stressed during a time of conflict.
I paragraph three, Morris lists our many instances that outline people’s excessive desire for things. These examples that author uses can immediately connect with the audience; the audience can identify the things that they have done themselves. This evokes them to think that maybe there is a problem with their passion for collecting things. At this point, Morris further convinces the audience with another example/ Morris points out how her friend manages to keep “a spotless house and a soul serene” just by giving away things that she does not “imperatively need”. This particular instance shows the readers that by being free of the control of physical objects, they can easily lead a much simpler life.
Johnson starts off by explaining the meaning of satire which is “successful when the writer can make an audience believe the idea presented is not only logical, but practical.” She explains how Huxley gives this sort of humor to the social problem which is caused by people. She gives a little background to the story, explaining how there was no problems in the world such as war, and if there was anything wrong, people would just take soma to have hallucinations about being in this happy world. Johnson also gives details on how people were controlled by the system, choosing how fetuses are grown and how the system controls their thoughts and actions. Johnson also gives a view on how religion was not important during that time, that “there was no need for religion.” John wanted a God, freedom, and sins, he just wanted to feel something other than happiness. To summarize this, Johnson believed that some people do live happy but the “true value in life comes from living through hard times, and persevering so as to become complete, while human
Molly’s values, norms and beliefs are clearly evident throughout the novel as portrayed through her interactions and ultimately act as the fundamental determinants in her life direction. Molly encompasses and take pride in maintaining values surrounding honesty and having fun and doing what she wants. During Molly’s conversation with Dean Marne concerning her relationship with Faye Raider, Molly’s mindset of pursuing happiness through doing what she wants is illustrated, “’Don’t you find that to be somewhat of an aberration? Doesn’t this disturb you my dear? After all, it’s not normal’ ‘I know its not normal for people in this world to be happy, and I’m happy” (113).
Being exiled by society, she then has the opportunity to fully come into her own. She is able to reflect on her individual views vs. society’s views. She can lean on herself and successfully support herself and her daughter in her young age. Lastly she doesn’t take more than need despite that she is very able to. Hawthorne illustrated a character that was complex, and the reader can watch her transcend over obstacles put in front of her throughout the
7). She guides the reader through her train of thought, attempting to make logical assumptions on the meaning of her zip codes or account number, which are sarcastic. This method of deductive conclusion not only appeals to logos through logic, but further create some humour, keeping the audience involved and sympathetic to the issue. She also recalls the joke “Don’t tell me what kind of day to have!” and parodies a hostile farewell from Romeo and Juliet to “Have a great day, Romeo!” in order to demonstrate situations of unnecessary politeness. This way, the audience can reflect on their own experiences with the issue and feel uncomfortable without the author having to list the
Children have always had a mystical way of viewing the world in which they see the most genuine beauty in everything around them while the people who have come of age struggled to see that exact same beauty they once saw. The naiveness of children is something envied by those who have been subjected to life’s many trials, but being relieved of the naïve also opened doors for these adults to form a new perception of the world around them. Katherine Mansfield’s “The Garden Party” shows that retaining an innocent view of life is impossible once one comes of age. Mansfield does an excellent job of portraying the sheltered life of Laura Sheridan through the relationships she has with her family and the environment around her. Laura’s wistful views of her surroundings are shown in the story when she describes the, “Little faint winds playing chase, in at the topes of the windows, out at the doors.
