Sean Carter - 542 words
Living from day to day is a journey that never ends. It is a constant yearning to discover who we are and who we want to be. Sometimes, however, what we think we are, we sometimes aren't, and what we wish to be isn't always what we become. It is a constant learning process to discover one's self and is not something that can be easily achieved. Thomas Merton, a trappist Monk, describes his journey of discovering himself in the autobiography The Seven Story Mountain. There were times and periods in his life when he thought he knew what he did or did not want to be and then there were times filled with confusion of not knowing his true identity. It wasn't until he finally joined the trappist m ...

Carter And Religion - 305 words
Carter and Religion In his book, The Culture of Disbelief, author Steven Carter attempts to reconcile two modern concerns: religious significance and the importance placed on logical reasoning and understanding. He attempts to explain how religiously dedicated people can also be intelligent, rational persons who should be taken seriously. He does this continually emphasizing his own astuteness and concurrent piousness. In this passionately argued polemic--which Carter, a black Episcopalian, backs with personal anecdote, historical research, and legal brief--the case is made that something has gone awry in American politics since the heyday of the civil-rights struggle. For example, In the 19 ...

Review Of The Carter Collection Of Chinese Bronze Mirrors - 1,893 words
I was looking for building 125 east 65th street, hoping that I would soon find any building looking like a museum. Finally, I came upon a building that looks like a rich brownstone in mid-Manhattan.

Pushing the button expecting someone to come to the door, a semi-loud buzzing noise came from the door. Turning the doorknob, I went inside the Chi ...

When people talk about the civil rights movement, the first thing that comes to mind is the famous speech I have a dream by Martin Luther King.
