Most people have accepted a relative worldview, and leaders continue to impress tolerance on the upcoming generation. While it is necessary to accept disagreement, Aristotle and Isocrates challenge young people to think critically and independently. Society thrives when men and women think and speak with a gentle critique and with a unified desire for truth. If great men such as Aristotle and Isocrates displayed such a passion for rhetoric and argued for its correct teaching, contemporary authors and speakers should consider the same standard. The modern world needs less “sophists” who argue for the sake of arguing or promoting a selfish agenda, and it needs speakers who are willing to seek and defend truth – real, justified, pure

“We Are All Confident Idiots” by David Dunning presents a phenomenon that people often fail to recognize their own ignorance. The article was recently published on the website of Pacific Standard, and it intends to reach a wide range of readers, among them, American youth and teachers are probably the main target audience. Living in a time surrouds by expedient aceess to knowledge, people however are not any wiser.

The article has a subtle structure, starting with reality show, expanding on the arguments with three main types of ignorance, gradually outlining the severity of not recognizaing ignorance, and finally, effectively leading to a convincing conclusion.
In order to succeed your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. ~Albert Einstein Indeed a very remarkable quote from a very remarkable man. I guess the real reason for why I started this essay like this is because it connects to my daily life so easily. I’m a person that learns from their mistakes, yes I have succeeded in life but all that success has come with hard work and also failure because a person isn’t really successful unless they have failed first, it may sound absurd but it’s the truth. I have many stories to tell and honestly 750 words are not enough to express me and my personality.
I feel the movie was portrayed well, and I like some of the people the Lee cited. The movie was also able to show Lee and Leslie’s struggle in a credible way, and it managed to show how both sides felt too. I could feel and see why Leslie changed and that she truly wanted to share her discovery with her husband. It was also an overall good movie, which I would definitely recommend; I for sure wouldn’t mind watching it again. On a final note, the movie precisely shows the transition from skepticism to faith of an everyday man and his
“Stand up for what you believe in, even if that means standing alone” - Andy Biersack. This quote suits people who are truly passionate about what they believe in, they aren’t just doing this because they want to be famous.

The author proves that the protagonist has different reasons and intentions for protesting. In the following stories, both protagonists in this specific excerpt of the story are extraordinarily strong in their beliefs but for a different intention.
“I wanted to briefly be adored by strangers, to be remembered as a handsome and kind man, a better man, more complete, even saintly”. This quote expresses David’s ongoing internal battle between knowing who he is as a person and worrying about how others identify him. In reality, the only person’s opinion that David should be cautious about is Sharon 's, which ironically is the only opinion that he destroyed in the process. Another ironic part in the story is how Sharon never forgives David for the lie he told that day, yet later on in their marriage, she is the one lying the most and keeping the biggest secret of all, the
He is very well-known for his numerous theories on ethical questions and such as his Theory of Forms. This theory states that the perfect forms of justice, love, etc. is what everyone wants, but in reality, people have worse and less perfect versions of that ideal form. Plato’s Platonic Love philosophy, another example of his finest works, is where the lover should have qualities that the other lacks in order for both to be greater individuals. These, along with many other theories, treasured dialogues, and teachings are what makes his name so grand and looked up to present day.
The misunderstanding between Ponyboy and Darry is just something that regularly happens. Brothers normally tend to annoy each other and at the same time love each other equally. There is no generalization at all in this statement, but it is common that lots of brothers have arguments about the most ridiculous things. I love this book so much, it teaches a good message about life and brotherhood, it really inspires me to do something good for a change, to tell my loved ones how much I appreciate them. I am really glad that I was able to read this book, it is for sure one of
Being a millennial makes me the most prideful. We are the most creative, openminded, and technologically advanced generation I know. What stands out the most is that I always speak the truth and if something is against what I believe I will certainly speak my mind about it. In this day in age, political and religious views differ between other generations, but what I like the most about Millennials is that no matter what views or beliefs you may have, we don’t care, we unite, and we support each other against the bad and fight for what is right. People may describe it as being free-spirited, but all I know is that I have great power in my voice and It will never
