- Great Wall - 1,256 words
Great Wall Everything can be linked to everything! This is the ultimate anthropological truth. What drew my to the Great Wall is that the Great Wall isn't only a physical thing but it is also something that has stood for a culture. From a physical barrier to something that established safe caravan routes, the Great Wall has stood for it all. It represents China, in the current and in the past.

Chin Shi Huang, the originator of the wall and who the great country gets its name after probably wouldn't of ever expected the wall to be a 4,500 mile long masterpiece that woul ...

- Lord Of The Flies: Ralph Creating A Society Based On Survival - 1,072 words
... ay we got to decide on what can be done. And I think I could tell you what Ralph's going to say next. The most important thing on the island is the smoke and you can't have no smoke without a fire.'"(4) This clearly sets things straight with Ralph's group, as there are no rules to follow as long as the boys work together as a team to keep the fire going and remain safe until being rescued.

He kept house meticulously, which mirrored his career, a famous art restorer. I never told him ...
