One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest - 1,638 words
The imagination is the readers most important tool on the path to enjoying a good book. One can only hinder their enjoyment of the story by disregarding the vivid images created by the mind. Nothing can compare to a landscape so exquisite that it would make a cinematographer jealous, or a prison so cold that you can see the inmates hot breath. However, some authors offer help for those who are creatively impaired. In One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, the author, Ken Kesey builds such an effective tone, that the shifts in the attitudes of the characters can be detected. In the first half of the novel, Kesey uses a wonderful device to show oppression that makes the reader feel as if they themsel ...

First the child is asked to write simple things such as his name, address, birthday, telephone number, etc. The smallest facts that would be considered the least important usually end up determining the childs placement. If his writing is extremely large or small, it is often an indication of an emotional problem. Questions about the family and the childs background may give the evaluator a good idea of what type of environment the child is growing up in. Often it is ascertained that ones environ ...

Philosophy Of Education - 1,277 words
The term philosophy can be defined in many ways. I like to define philosophy to mean truth. When evaluating my philosophy of education, my views are clear and concise. Education should be provided to everyone, free of charge, and free of discriminations. Education today is provided to everyone publicly at no expense. Although free, it does not come without distractions. For instance, public schooling has turned into more of a daycare type setting for teachers and students. With emphasis based on violence, and rightfully so, I feel the learning environment has deteriorated to an extreme extent. Administrators focus more on dress codes and violence prevention, than they do on test scores and h ...

Paradoxes In Man And The Universe By Pascal - 1,589 words
Pascal builds his argument in Man and the Universe out of a series of paradoxes, seemingly contradictory truths. In writing, Man and the Universe, Pascal reflected his views on what is our place in the world as human beings. Pascals writing shows a harmony between mathematical certainty and moral truths in support of his argument. In his Pensees or Thoughts, Pascal hoped to integrate scientific progress with the notion of humankinds fallen state. Many suggest that Pascal is the master of paradox. A paradox is an idea or situation that appears to contradict itself but that is nevertheless true. The purpose of a paradox is to provoke fresh thought and draw the readers attention. An example of ...

Mlk And Malcolm X - 1,303 words
Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X grew up in different environments. King was raised in a comfortable middle-class family where education was firmly stressed. Malcolm X, on the other hand came from an underprivileged home, where education was not such a big deal. Malcolm X was a self taught man, who received little schooling and rose to greatness on his own due to his own intelligence and determination. The early backgrounds of the two were clearly responsible for the distinct different responses to their fight against American racism. With King being a well-educated man, he had read up on non-violence, and would use non-violence as the tactic of the Civil Rights Movement in which he led ...

Characterization Catbird Seat - 572 words
From ones first nursery rhyme book to ones later fictional novel, it is quite easy to say that everyone has come across many characters among their years. Some vivid or round, and some bland or flat. Characters depict different qualities and traits within their story line, like Mr. Martin, in the short story, The Catbird Seat. Mr. Martin is a prime example of a round character, in which his physical, personal, and psychological attributes are described in great depth. Physically Mr. Martin was described with green eyes, which would suggest that he was a Caucasian man. There are other aspects that one can assume, like he may be a solid man instead of puny, since he drank milk everyday, but th ...

This is hard to do and for many people, very short sighted. Trying to decide on what to do with your life in one big step is what frees people from making positive changes.

The Necklace - 603 words
The Selfishness of Mathilde Loisel In this essay, I will show how the author, Guy De Maupassant, characterizes Mathilde Loisel as a selfish, greedy, and manipulative person who thought only of herself. I will also show how her selfishness affected other characters in the story. My first example of Mathilde Loisels selfishness is She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing. And these were the only things she loved; she felt that she was made for them. (p.133). These sentences show how materialistic Mathilde is and how selfish she is for caring only about gaining these things for herself. She didnt show any care for her husband who despite their humble living, seemed to be a caring and loving husba ...

The Comparison Between Booker T Washington And Web Dubois - 488 words
Through reading the pieces of writings by Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois in the Three Negro Classic I have learned they have different attitudes/tones towards society. Booker Ts tone was one of being positive towards life, and he was very forgiving. On the other hand W. E. B. DuBoiss tone was totally different. His tone was not forgiving, and he thought very negatively. The tones of Booker T. and DuBois are completely opposites, one is of forgiveness and looking for the better in life, and the other is of blaming and pointing fingers. Bookers tone was very forgiving, and he also had a positive attitude towards life. Washington believed that hard work could help a person achieve any ...

Eight Qualities Of A Professional Salesperson - 1,342 words
In talking to people all over the United States, i have found that the term "salesperson" generates many responses. We seem to hear some of them over and over. A few of the most common are: pushy, high pressure, dishonest, huckster, hard sell...and it deteriorates from there. The answers are quite different when we ask for a description of a professional salesperson. Then we hear responses that are a big improvement: thorough, honest, friendly, polite, competent and sincere. The question is, what can you do to develop the qualities of a professional and how do you convey to others that you now possess or are developing those traits? The answer is simple, although not always easy. The first s ...
