Triumph Or Tragedy - 1,646 words
Never, never, never give up, was coined by Sir Winston Churchill. This quote holds more meaning than could ever be put into words. Everyday we are faced with obstacles that occur in our lives. How we manage these everyday occurrences make us not only who we are, but also who we hope to become. Nineteen hundred eight six was an exceptional year filled with triumph and tragedy. May I never forget lessons learned and innocence lost. Tragic events do not preclude tragic outcomes. Leaving home was probably the hardest thing I ever had to do at the age of seventeen. For seventeen years I lived in the small ranch style house. I always dreamed of leaving, but never thought the time would come. Final ...

Fridays Moral Triumph - 818 words
The "primitive" Friday demonstrates exceedingly good values superior to those of the "civilized" Crusoe. Friday's honesty, loyalty, and natural innocence are unequaled by Crusoe's deceptiveness, lack of trust in Friday, and pessimistic ideas. Early life in "civilization" gives Crusoe preconceptions that don't allow for simple, natural thinking. Yet, Friday, raised as a "savage", is given to simple childlike behavior. When compared with Crusoe, Friday triumphs with his good-natured morals. Friday's honesty is apparent, not only to the reader, but also to Crusoe. Crusoe's own description of Friday is evidence of this, "I had a singular satisfaction in the fellow himself: his simple, unfeigned ...

The Power Of One And Cry Freedom - Triumph Against Adversary - 1,172 words
The most potent weapon of the oppressor is in the mind of the oppressed Steve Biko Triumph means to be victorious or successful and an adversary is someone you compete against or fight, like an enemy. So to triumph against your adversary is to defeat your enemy. The Power of One and Cry Freedom are two different stories, written by two different people, but both have the theme Triumph Against Adversity. Both of the stories were set in South Africa during the times of a white ruled government where black people were considered inferior to white man and were treated so.

Final Impression Of Triumph And Despair In The Old Man And The Sea - 492 words
Final Impression of Triumph and Despair in The Old man and the Sea The Old man and the Sea develops a familiar Hemingway theme of the undefeated. Like other Hemingway treatments of the same theme, this one presents the story of the moral triumph which has as its absolutely necessary condition an apparently smashing defeat. The message of the novel can be summed up in the following remarks of Santiago: A man can be destroyed but not defeated. The novel tells us the story of amoral triumph. Santiagos experience is a manifestation of personal dignity, courage, and heroism. His faith, determination, and hope rest upon his belief in mans infinite capacity to endure suffering. After Santiago hooks ...

New Constitution Was A Triumph For Democracy - 649 words
In 1776, the colonies were called upon by the Continental Congress to draft new constitutions. In all reality, the Continental Congress was actually asking the colonies to summon themselves into being states. According to the theory of republicanism, the sovereignty of these new states would rest on the authority of the people. In 1789, the United States of America adopted a new constitution. Prior to then, fifty-five delegates from every state except Rhode Island, met in Philadelphia for the Constitutional Convention. Although, Patrick Henry, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson were absent, many well-educated, politically experienced delegates such as George Washington, James Madison, Alexande ...

What was present was as icy, brutal cynicism that was not only brought to bear on the British, but on mankind as a whole." (Emery 179-80) Hamilton was not immature, through all his childhood hardships he advanced on an intellectual level that preceded him in the colonies. Hamilton wrote: The people of Britain must... be an order of superior beings, not cast in the same mold with the common degenerate race of mortals, if the sacrifice of our interest to theirs be not entirely welcome... the philanthropy of their representatives will be of a transcendent and matchless nature, should they not gratify th ...

After assisting to get the Confederations financial situation stable, he then turned to forming an actual, tangible state in which to rely upon for a form of government. He wrote a series of six essays, labeled "The Continentalist", in which he focused on one central theme; a centralized power of government not unlike the parliament, to aide in forming continental nationalism. His answer was more power to congress. He insisted that a fatal flaw in the Articles of Confederation was a "want of power in Congress." One of his biggest fears played into an earlier theme ...

Cuban Missile Crisis The Edge Of War - 1,250 words
John F. Kennedy's greatest triumph as President of the United States came in 1962, as the world's two largest superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, edged closer and closer to nuclear war. The Soviet premier of Russia was caught arming Fidel Castro with nuclear weapons. The confrontation left the world in fear for thirteen long days, with the life of the world on the line. In 1962, Nikita Khrushchev, Premier of the Soviet Union, employed a daring gambit. He secretly ordered the placement of Soviet nuclear weapons in Cuba. Earlier the Soviet premier had promised Soviet protection to Cuba ("Cuban" 774). This was the first time any such weapons had been placed outside of Eurasia ( ...

The Atlantic crossing lasted three to five weeks from West African trading sites such as the Gambia, Senegal, and Sierra Leone Rivers. Near the equator, in regions such as the Bights of Benin and Biafra (near present-day Nigeria), the voyage to the Americas took several months.

The American Dream - 1,012 words
It is not uncommon for one to pursue their dreams. For example, students incessantly work with the objective of academic success. Frequently, these students have set certain goals for themselves and strive to reach them. The American dream can be compared to a grade that a student works relentlessly to obtain. This is evidently a goal that one sets for himself/herself. The dream is a grade, not always being easy to achieve, yet attainable through keen determination and hard work. As people migrate across the Atlantic Ocean from foreign countries with a certain goal, they see the Statue of Liberty holding her torch of freedom. Then, each new set of eyes that sees this bold statue is assimilat ...

Robespierre Maximilien His Reason Behind The Terror - 1,971 words
Maximilien Robespierre: His Reason Behind the Terror No figure of the French Revolution has aroused so much controversy as that of Maximilien Robespierre. He is known to most people as the symbol of the Reign of Terror, a period where approximately 17,000 people died while enduring horrible prison conditions or were executed due to the mere suspicion of being a traitor. The question of whether or not these actions were rightfully justified is an important one. Robespierre seems to have thought so. I, however, will show that the use of terror by Robespierre during the French Revolution was not just or necessary, and that he was acting in his own best interest rather than the States. First to ...
