  • A Contemplative Essay: What Is Reality - 683 words
    A Contemplative Essay: What Is Reality? I believe we each perceive things differently, and the combination of all our perceptions creates how we view the world, creates our reality. I'm not going to pretend to know what reality is, but I know what I think it is, and what I think it should be. Reality should be what each and every one of us wants it to be. There should be no duplicate realities, just like there are no two snowflakes the same. What my reality is should never be the same as what your reality is. For each person has different, albeit special, beliefs. And these beliefs should be what, over the years, shape our reality to what it is. Not what somebody else says is going on, not w ...

  • Bigotry And Discrimination - 368 words
    Bigotry and Discrimination First of all, bigotry is just a weird word for racism. So, what do you think of racism? In my opinion, racism does not belong in this society, much less this world. It wouldve been much better off without it. Do you know what the stupid thing is? We all do it. Even if we dont realize it. Imagine this situation, say you and your friends of the same race are sitting somewhere, minding your own business, when all of a sudden, a group of people come up to you and start observing your group in the most disrespectful way. I mean you wouldnt really mind. Until they start doing the most shameful thing they can do. They start jeering. About what? Well, take a guess. The way ...

  • Bird Imagery In Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man - 873 words
    Bird Imagery In Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man Bird Imagery in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man The works of twentieth-century Irish writer James Joyce resound vividly with a unique humanity and genius. His novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, published in 1916, is a convincing journey through the inner mind and spirit of Stephen Dedalus. Portrayed with incredible fluency and realism, imagery guides the reader through the swift current of growth tangible in the juvenile hero. Above all heavy imagery in the novel is the recurring bird motif. Joyce uses birds to ultimately relate Stephen to the Daedelus myth of the hawklike man; however, these images also exemplify Ste ...

  • Discrimination - 1,339 words
    Discrimination Alternative Discrimination In todays American society, it is expected that young men and young women court eachother, marry, and eventually raise a family. This is the kind of life that is expected, the one almost every parent wants for his or her child. Not all men however are attracted to women and not all women are attracted to men.

Although homosexuality has become more mainstream, it is still looked at as an unnatural, unclean, alternative lifestyle by most.

  • Doll House By Henrik Ibsen - 1,551 words
    Doll House By Henrik Ibsen Many of our choices and the things one does in a lifetime can be directly based on what society perceives to be proper. The choices one makes based on societys views, may sometimes have no logic to support them.

  • Good Father - 556 words
    Good Father The definition of a good father is as individual as the individuals involved themselves. A good father is able to support his childrens strengths, along with being able to help them overcome their weaknesses. He is able to do this without appearing to be a know-it-all. The ability to show by example how to live life, while not being afraid to make mistakes and not to be perfect all the time are also very important characteristic. Atticus was by that definition a very good father. Whenever Scout was mislead by anything, like the legend of Boo Radley or about how grown ups are, or why certain people feel prejudiced about certain people, Atticus was always right there to guide her. ...

(Scott 382-385) Mark van Doren explains the language and poetry in "A Midsummer Nights Dream" as an immense expanse of Shakespeares extraordinary poetic imagination. This imagination is vast enough to house fairy realms and the world of reality, including all the peculiar manifestations of either place.

  • Platos Republic - 1,138 words
    Plato's Republic Virtues contribute to peoples actions in todays society. Society as a whole has a common set of virtues that many people agree on. In todays society, these are known as laws. Virtues also mold the individual outlook on life, and give them the morals to do what is right. In The Republic, Plato divides the city into three classes: gold, silver, as well as bronze and iron souls. Each class is designated to posses a specific virtue. He believes that wisdom, courage, moderation, and justice combine together to form The Republic. However, Platos four virtues individually do not necessarily produce a utopian society. A combination of the four in each citizen is imperative in produc ...

    Pygmalion Higgins' Philosophy Professor Higgins is seen throughout Pygmalion as a very rude man. While one may expect a well educated man, such as Higgins, to be a gentleman, he is far from it. Higgins believes that how you treated someone is not important, as long as you treat everyone equally. The great secret, Eliza, is not having bad manners or good manners or any other particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls: in short, behaving as if you were in Heaven, where there are no third-class carriages, and one soul is as good as another. -Higgins, Act V Pygmalion. Higgins presents this theory to Eliza, in hope of justifying his treatment of her. This theory wo ...

    The case for Work for the dole The Case for Work for the dole Youth faces an uncertain future - it always has in one way or another. The progression from parental dependency to self-sufficiency and independence has always been (and will continue to be) a difficult one. The stresses of successfully completing high school are compounded by peer pressure, personal and family relationship problems, and the natural problems inherent in being an adolescent. As well, today, moreso than in yesteryear, there is an ever-present temptation to turn to drugs and alcohol, either as an escape route, or in order to cope with it all. Doing well at school does not guarantee a future career path, even if the c ...

When two of the girls pass out from fright and can't be revived, the others find themselves in serious trouble.
