Change is something that we fear because is out of our control and when things are out of control it worries us. We worry that we will lose who we are and the things we know, we worry we’ll just become another phony in this phony world. Another aspect of Holden 's character that I found relatable and interesting is
For example, a person who has experienced a misfortune might resign himself to fate. Since he thinks that fate is inevitable, he wouldn’t try again to change his future. This belief that all events are predetermined and, therefore, inevitable is called fatalism. Furthermore, fate indicates an unalterable course that a man takes in life; meaning that the events in a man’s life are pre-ordained and cannot be changed. Another view of fate seems to be best explained as a fork in the road: fate maps out a series of tracks one may take and, depending on individual choices, a person can reach this end or that one, therefore, it is difficult to say which idea is right, or if either idea is right.
The speaker is trying to explain to the reader that choices we make about life could lead us on different paths that we might want to go through. The speaker is trying to tell the reader that they have to be careful about making choices in your life to follow your dreams or you’ll end up with a life of regrets or no life at
Throughout one’s life they are faced with choices and react accordingly to what feels to be the best decision for the moment. The choices one makes are considered morally right, wrong or indifferent each having a different outcome. Each decision has its consequence affecting one thing or another, however making the wrong decision has the most impactful consequence often requiring a timely solution. One must recognize the consequence of actions one commits in order to effectively understand the magnitude of the outcome. In Cormac McCarthy’s novel No Country for Old Men, one of the novels protagonists, Llewelyn Moss demonstrates the result of failing to correct the error of his ways resulting in his family’s untimely demise.
When love comes into life accepting it or denying it will determine the future. Love can cause good and bad fortune depending on what the priorities are. The challenge is to deal and accept the consequences of whichever choice
Risk taking is an essential aspect of reaching one’s desires and dreams, especially when it comes to crossing boundaries. These risks, physical or metaphorical, will require the individual to step out of their comfort zone and summon the courage to test the extend of their limits, in order to grow and embrace the changes during the process. While these risks are worthy one must accept the inevitability of losing a part of their identity. Examples of risk taking include; stepping into the unknown, searching for freedom, and breaking traditions. All of these decisions include the possibility of successes and failures as explored in both the texts Mao’s last dancer and VillaWood Mums.
Knowing that “way leads onto way”, it is not likely he will come back. The man must make an important decision regarding which path he will pursue. The speaker, on an impulse, decides to be daring, and take the road less traveled upon. He possibly chose the less taken road, frightened by the idea of missing out on something significant. However, the author predicts that he took the wrong path.
The tone really focuses on how Frost feels about the uncertainty of choices. The narrator of the poem is unsure about choosing the wrong road and missing unknown opportunities. The fork in the road becomes a metaphor for all choices that people must make and how certain choices may affect the outcome of their lives. As the narrator reflects on having to make a decision, the tone of the poem becomes serious and
Aristotle adds that a situation would most likely arise in one's life where they must choose which end they wish to work towards and this would result in one becoming superior to the other (Annas 32). If one was unable to determine which one of the ends they valued more they would simply be reduced to randomly choosing which to pursue. Aristotle argues that someone must have at least one final end by stating that if one does not value anything in life for its own sake then life would be empty and vain, and we know that life is not empty and vain (Annas 32). Through this rationalization it is only reasonable to believe that one should seek a sole final
