Leadership Qualities In The Lord Of The Flies - 1,852 words
A leader is needed on the island. The people we have to choose from are Ralph, Piggy, Jack and Simon because of their certain leadership qualities. Ralph is a good leader as he takes care of everyone on the island. Piggy would make a good leader, as he is very practical and scientific. Jack would also make a good leader, as he is popular because of his survival skills. Simon would make a good leader, as he is concerned about the beast and knows what is going on, on the island.

Yukio Mishima - 750 words
I read a novella with a collection of three stories by Yukio Mishima. The first story was called The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea, the second was called The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, and the third was Confessions of a Mask. I would enjoy talking about each of these books individually, however I have far too little room for discussions of a such a great feat of writing. Instead I will point out the under lying themes that manifest themselves in each story very clearly. The most prominent and head motif was of the hero myth. Every culture honors a form of hero, and although not many realize that heroes are not always people hero myths often fall onto the shoulders of leaders wh ...

John F. Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." I see academics as a similar two-way interaction: in the classroom, I will do much more than take up valuable space. Because of the broad range of experiences I have had, my knowledge of many subjects is thorough. These experiences will help me perform well in any class, as I have learned how to use my time efficiently. Time management is very important to me, because one needs free time with which to engage in other activities -- from research to athletics. I have an everlasting thirst for knowledge.

Quest For Leadership - 717 words
Two unassociated books, Lord of the Flies and Animal Farm, come together in a certain way to show the quest for leadership among humans. George Orwell, author of Animal Farm, and William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, explains quite well in these books how human kind destroys itself to be above everything else. Each story has its own original leader, a second designated realistic leader, and its final monarchist leader. In Lord of the Flies the original leader is possibly the pilot or really any adult figure that once controlled them. The second designated realistic leader is Ralph, who is picked as leader because of his instant leadership actions. Finally comes the monarchist leaders ...

Themes In British Writing - 1,419 words
English 283 discusses many themes of British Literature, covering novels from ancient to modern times. These themes are evident in the personality of the main character, usually the hero, of each novel. These themes include loss of a close friendship and great displays of violence. However, one prominent theme in most of the novels is that the hero waits until the moment when he most needed to become a leader. The hero often begins as a quiet character and then transforms, by taking authority and command, into a heroic leader. Each hero appears to lack leadership qualities, or at least ignore their responsibility, until a time of dire distress, in which they become the great leader. This is ...

Julius - 410 words
One of the greatest generals who ever lived, his military genius has been compared to that of Robert E. Lee and Irvin Rommel. I know it doesnt take a general to run an empire, but it does take a smart man. I knew very little about Caesar until I read the play by William Shakespeare. All I knew was that he was a very good military strategist and that he conquered most of Europe. After reading this play I learned the wrongs that his fellow Romans bestowed upon him. I learned that he was never really a king of Rome, but that he was offered the chance and that he denied it. Julius Caesar may not have been the most modest of people, but I believe that he had a kind heart, leaving everything he lo ...
