In Life there are lessons to be learned and the sooner they’re learned the better you understand yourself. That’s what life is about, the challenge of decrypting your character. Without knowing yourself you are destined to hell on earth, at the same time knowing yourself doesn’t guarantee you heaven on earth. Acceptance of your character and the life you will have to lead, based on this character, will certainly be painful, but it is essential, essential because this “acceptance of character” will prevent you from dreaming of that which you may never have. I now know who I am. Based on who I am, I know the life I will have to lead and, of course, the dreams I may not dream. Who am I…? I am Me. I am very faint-learned, I am extreme, I am intense, and I am excessively passionate about everything. I love completely or I don’t love at all, I am a perfectionist, I am a control-freak, I believe in reality, I fear failure and ultimately I am me. What life do I have to live? Well, based on me being faint-learned, extreme, intense and excessively passionate, I cannot be a lover or have one. I get too committed, I eventually love “too much” and do everything in my power to make her happy and I get jealous of those who do a better job without trying so hard. This jealousy leads to heartbreak; nobody wants, needs or even deserves a lover possessed by the green-eyed monster. Being faint-learned the heartbreak kills me, it is the equivalent of burying a loved one, it’s agonizing. I am destined to be a single-forever, work-centered individual with no option but to find consolation in my work and in the height of my production levels within the vast and ever-expanding corporate...

Babies are extraordinary things that come from God, they bring joy into the lives of the family members, and they continue to spread that joy, as they grow older. But the joy of the family rests on something far greater, the Catholic Faith. In order for the family to be able to see the joy the baby is giving them the child must be baptized and have a good foundation for faith and virtue. Unborn babies are never able to shine forth this joy because they have not been touched by Christ's mystical hand in the sacrament of baptism, therefore do not ever see His eternal kingdom or glory. Catholics must stand strong in their believes and follow the Churches laws, so if the infant does come into the world they are his or hers role models. Catholics should be the role models of all the unbaptized and unborn. But if the Catholic people do not hold fast to their believes and defend the Churches teaching then what will the young child have to live up to? The young unborn baby looses his or hers chance to live life to its fullest extent by being a good Catholic when it is killed by abortion. Every baby that is killed is stripped of the joys of life on this earth and eternally in heaven. Catholics must be good, holy role models for everyone. For the unborn child's parents, they must show them that they can help them, show them that they care, listen to them, and then convert them to the Faith. So that when the baby is born his or hers parents will bring the baby to be baptized into the Church. Without being baptized and brought up in the faith the infant goes to the limbo of the unborn, where he or...

I woke up to a usual September day. It was the eleventh of the month; the summer sun was shining and the birds were chirping. It was actually one of the last warm days that New York would see as the season of autumn was approaching. I stretched and thought about my average day problems as any guy at the age of seventeen would. "Did I do all of my homework? Do I have to work tonight?" I started to get ready for school as my dad was almost out of the door to catch the train. My dad takes the train every morning to work in Manhattan. I've always envied him because he goes to New York City everyday. There are so many interesting people to see and there are fun things to do in the city. The city symbolizes freedom with out Statue of Liberty and our beautiful, tall towers. I left the house to go to high school. I would never have thought a day that started out so usual, would change my life forever. I left for school promptly at seven o'clock a.m. and began my scheduled routine. I walked down my social studies wing and found that al the T.V'S were on and a massive amount of students were crowded around. I said to myself, "what could be so interesting on television?" I looked at the television and I saw the replay of two airplanes crashing into the "twin towers" which were located in Manhattan. My mouth hung open and the first thing I thought of was my dad! Tragic ideas kept haunting me about my dad. I tried to remember if the "twin towers" were near my dad's office. My mom picked me up from school at noon crying. My heart was beating a million...

Analytic Geometry Analytic geometry was brought fourth by the famous French mathematician Rene' Descartes in 1637. Descartes did not start his studying and working with geometry until after he had retired out of the army and settled down. If not for Descartes great discovery then Sir Isaac Newton might not have ever invented the concept of calculus. Descartes concept let to calculus and Newton and G.W. Leibniz would not be know as well as they are today if it were not for the famous mathematician Rene' Descartes. Analytic geometry is a, "branch of geometry in which points are represented with respect to a coordinate system, such as Cartesian coordinates, and in which the approach to geometric problems is primarily algebraic." (Analytic Geometry) Analytic geometry is used to find distances, slopes, midpoints, and many many other things using special equations and formulas to determine what a person is looking for. Analytic geometry concentrates very much on algebra, generally, it is taught to students in algebra classes and becomes very helpful when being used in geometry. It is not very often when geometry is taught not using the algebra to solve the problems, unless proving statements, analytic geometry is used most often when speaking of geometry, it is the guidelines of geometry. It is a set way to find out answers to problems. There are many simple formulas to analytic geometry, but some of them get very complex and difficult. Analytic geometry is not only used in math, it is very common to see it being used in any kind of science, logic, and any other mathematical subjects. There are formulas in this form of mathematics in which the volume of a gas is measured, and other formulas along those lines (Encyclopedia.com). Some formulas and equations of analytic geometry are: The midpoint formula- (change in...

Since the event of the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001, the issue of terrorism has received a considerable amount of media attention. The recent bombings of Bali and Jakarta caused this media focus to be further intensified allowing much discussion and debate between commentators such as Andrew Bolt, presenting their view on possible motives for such terrorist attacks. 'The Blast of Truth', appearing in The Herald Sun on Thursday 7th August, 2003, advocates his blatant opinion on this issue with a contention that terrorism is not a war against "Australia or wicked America", but rather against freedom. Bolt employs various persuasive techniques with the intention to sway the reader whilst clearly revealing his prominent stance on the fight for freedom as he puts it. Throughout the article, the author adopts the use of colloquial language and begins his discussion with a sarcastic tone. This language is designed to generate a particular level of interest and creates an informal atmosphere. As the discussion progresses, Bolt reveals a much more authoritative and arrogant tone as he recounts his experience visiting Bali himself. With the mention of this background, he instils a sense of credibility into his arguments. Without this, the reader would not have an adequate amount of information, due to the lack of use of statistics, expert opinion or facts. One of the most apparent persuasive devices Bolt exercised in the article was his use of emotive terms. On several occasions, it is evident that strong words were deliberately used in order to evoke strong emotional responses from the reader. "…as pieces of dead Indonesians are picked off the pavement…" The disturbing and graphic words the author uses to portray his point of view enables the audience to paint a vivid picture of the scene he envisions in their minds. The...

Analytical Essay on 'Race Relations' In the poem, 'Race Relations' by Jean Burgess the main theme is the discrimination against the little black girl, we know this because the two little girls were playing together in their own little world doing no harm until the white girls' mother started cursing her daughter for interacting with a black girl even though they were doing nothing wrong This was conveyed to us because before the mother realised her daughter was playing with a black girl she was calmer. A main idea portrayed in this poem is the parents' influence on the little girl, as she did not see anything wrong with playing with the black girl and would not have seen anything wrong with it if her mother had not yelled at her for doing it. We know this as the Jean Burgess writes about the little white girl leaving as 'Dragging her feet Mary moved slowly, moved towards her mother' so we realise Mary doesn't want to leave because she is dragging her feet and also being forced to leave by her mother. Another main idea is the whites showing prejudice towards the little black girl as she has not shown an act in which the white parents could form this prejudice against her. Evidence of this prejudice against the black girl is 'How he'll scold you, and serve you right, who have no proper pride.' This shows us that the mother is marginalizing the little black girl as she has judged her by thinking she has no right to play with her daughter. The children were very happy playing together, we know this because when they were playing together they did not notice anything too busy building their sandcastles evidence of this is the whole first and second paragraphs, 'They played behind the garden wall,...

Analytical Essay In the poem "Ode on a Grecian Urn" by John Keats, the speaker struggles with the trials and tribulations of life compared to immortality. He then speaks to the Grecian Urn in attempt to engage with the static immobility of the sculpture. He questions the urn, but gets no response from it. The speaker ultimately has to decide the answers to his own questions, leaving the poem with a higher level of understanding about life. This was a poem from the Romantic Period and that made it easier to take a more "imaginative" standpoint, because during this period the authors focused on feelings, the imagination, and the value of what is supposed to be done to what can be done. It is important to look at the feelings of this particular poem, and it deals with the mysterious works of life in general, and reality versus a so-called "dream world." The author creates this dream world through the speaker's own imagination. The theme of this poem portrays Keats's attempt to connect with the stand still time of sculpture, the Grecian urn. It has been passed down through countless centuries to the time of the speaker's viewing, and this urn exists outside of time in the human sense—it does not age, or die, and it can grasp no such concepts. During the speaker's meditation, this creates an Smith 2 intriguing paradox for the human figures carved into the side of the urn. They are free from time, but are simultaneously frozen in time. This is illustrated by the lines "Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave Thy song, nor ever can the trees be bare" (v. 15 &16). The people on the urn do not have to confront aging and death, but they cannot experience anything because they are frozen. Even...

Tom Sawyer- An Analytical Essay There is much debate these days on whether the boyhood masterpiece, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, should be allowed in libraries, and whether it is appropriate for modern audiences to read. Although the language that Twain uses in his novel is politically incorrect, this book is still acceptable for modern audiences to read, and this is largely because if Mark Twain did not use this language, the portrayal of late nineteenth century rural life would not have been as vivid and true as it is. In this book, racial slurs, such as nigger, and Injun', are used quite often, and the people who use the word are very nonchalant about it. Also, many people find it unacceptable for modern audiences to read this book because it contains objectionable material, such as smoking, beatings, and running away. For example, when Tom covers for Becky when she rips the schoolmasters anatomy book, Tom receives many "floggings." Inspired by the splendor of his own act, he took without an outcry the most merciless flaying that even Mr. Dobbins had ever administered…1 This quote makes the situation seem like it is an admirable thing to be beaten, and that it is all right for the schoolmaster to beat Thomas Sawyer. We must remember that Mark Twain's genre was regionalism. When he wrote, he took extreme caution to stay true to the area, culture, customs, and dialect, including vocabulary, and ideas on how children should be raised. Instead, this quote is a good learning topic for children. It is a good example of how schooling has changed, and how children were punished in the nineteenth century. Also, it provides a good comparison for audiences to use to compare and contrast on how the way children are punished in the classroom and out has developed over...

By the end of 1914 the war entered a stalemate. Both sides became mired in two main, stationary fronts—the western front, primarily in northeastern France, and the eastern front, mainly in western Russia. At the fronts, the troops fought each other from numerous parallel lines of interconnected trenches. Each side laid siege to the other's system of trenches and endeavored to break through their lines. The frustration between the world powers is reflected in Junger's personal account of the war. The Storm of Steel provides a prolific account of a soldier's life. This account gives the feeling of detachment. Something needed to survive the war experience. "It has always been my ideal in war to eliminate all feelings…" Throughout the novel Junger describes the scenery. His emotions and psychological state can be determined through the method of description. Feelings and emotions are left out. One time in the novel he discusses a sensation that stayed with him throughout the war. "It was a weird sensation to look into those dead and questioning eyes. It gave me a shudder that all through the war I never quite lost." The dead and questioning eyes seem to mirror the overall feeling of those young men participating in the war. All seemed to question what they were seeing. The horrors and atrocities appeared to be superhuman. The questions led to the feeling of being dead. Ernst never glorified war. He treated it with an inhuman fashion. At times I felt detached from the book and the experience. Then I realized that the detachment I was feeling was the detachment the soldiers were feeling. Junger stated that he "made up his mind to omit all comments from this book…" This shows that he made up his mind to omit all emotion from the war. One would...
