Excellence is Your Best Weapon for Fighting Racism
Excellence is Your Best Weapon for Fighting Racism The Bible says that the poor will always be with us. An similar statement is that racism will always be with us. So, the question is, What should we do about it? There are many ways to fight racism: you might march, protest, complain, or beg the government for help. Some of these methods have worked well in the past. However, I think the best and most effective weapon today for fighting racism is excellence. Excellence will bring down more
Rosa Parks
Rosa Parks
Rosa Parks Rosa Parks is an extraordinary person because she stood up against racism and stood up for herself. It was even harder for her because she is a woman, and in those days, things were much harder for woman. Rosa Parks hated the ways of her life. She had always dreamed of having freedom in her life. As she grew up, she went through different experiences that gave her courage and strength. One day, Rosa Parks had so much courage and strength that when her bus arrived to pick her up, she

ETERNAL FREEDOM The time to escape did come! He had been waiting for it for several months. Taking advantage of the careless of the guards, he dipped himself in water while the prisoners were passing across the stream to go back to the camp after an exhausting working day in the field. The first part of his plan went exactly as desired. Being sure they went far enough, he quickly jumped out of the stream and headed for the woods. He knew there was a highway nearby so that he could hitch-hike to
A ROSE FOR EMILY
A ROSE FOR EMILY
A ROSE FOR EMILY A Rose for Emily takes place after the Civil War and into the 1900’s in the town of Jefferson, Mississippi—a town very similar to the one in which William Faulkner spent most of his life. It is a story of the conflict between the old and the new South, the past and the present—with Emily and the things around her steadfastly representing the dying old traditions and the present expressed mostly through the words of the narrator but also through Homer Barron and the new board of

Buddha The word Buddha means enlightened one. It is used today as a title to the one who has given us more religious beliefs than almost any other human who lived in this world. However, he was not given this name at birth; he had to earn it for himself by undergoing long, hard hours of meditation and contemplation. Buddha has changed the lifestyles of many cultures with new, never-before asked questions that were explained by his search for salvation. He began an entirely new religion that d

The root of all evil is money Because this phrase has been repeated so
“The root of all evil is money.” Because this phrase has been repeated so many times throughout history, one can fail to realize the truth in this timeless statement. Whether applied to the corrupt clergy of Geoffrey Chaucer’s time, selling indulgences, or the corrupt televangelists of today, auctioning off salvation to those who can afford it, this truth never seems to lose its validity. In Chaucer’s famous work The Canterbury Tales, he points out many inherent flaws of human nature, all of wh

SURREALISM AND T.S. ELIOT Surrealism is a dangerous word to use about the poet, playwright and critic T.S. Eliot, and certainly with his first major work, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock . Eliot wrote the poem, after all, years before Andre Breton and his compatriots began defining and practicing surrealism proper. Andre Breton published his first Manifesto of Surrealism in 1924, seven years after Eliot's publication of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. It was this manifesto whic

A Comparison of Contemporary and Romance Literature
A Comparison of Contemporary and Romance Literature Contemporary literature in the form of a short story consists of a plot, characters, point of view, setting, and theme (2). These elements can vary a great deal from one story to the next. An author of a short story also reveals a tone and a mood shown by his or her style of writing. Although romance literature contains the elements mentioned above, they are very different than those in short stories and are somewhat static from one tale to th

Bob Dylan once said, “ Allen Ginsberg is both tragic and dynamic, a lyrical genius, a con-man extraordinaire and probably the single greatest influence on American poetical voice since Whitman.” Helen Vendler voiced her opinion on Ginsberg, stating, “ Ginsberg is responsible for loosening the breath of American poetry at mid - century....... Most of all, he has demonstrated that there is nothing in American social and erotic reality which cannot find a place. His powerful mixture of Blake, Whit

Although Emily Elizabeth Dikinson and David Herbert Lawrence lived and wrote during two different times, and in different parts of the world, their poetry contains many similarities. At the time Dikinson was being laid to rest in Massachusetts, Lawrence was born in Nottingham, England. Also, along with the likenesses, they both have many differences. These affinities and dissimilarities can be seen in poems written by these authors dealing with snakes. The first disparities can be seen in the m

Scampi and Mustard stood at the bottom of the tree, tongues slowly moving in and out. It was over, both of them knew. They stared right back at the mangy cat with hate in their eyes.

Jennifer stopped running through the forest after doing so for what seemed like eternity. She had no idea where she was, why she was here, or who was chasing her. All she knew was that running for so long of a time made her very hungry. Desperately, she looked around for something to eat, and her eyes settled on a tall apple tree. Jennifer picked a couple and ate them as she leaned against a maple tree while watching mother nature take its course. She could see the sun was setting through the b

Not just some books, but all books. An entire distorted culture and civilization where all books are prohibited. And the penalty for being caught with books is that the books must be burned and in some cases the penalty may lead to death. In this tale of censorship and self discovery, Bradbury leads the reader through a short period

But most of all, the food was the best memory of all. The food served at Castlemont High’s senior prom was colorful and delicious.

Two of his books, Great Expectations and Oliver Twist, are representatives of the many kinds of differences and similarities found within his work.   Perhaps the reason why these two novels share some of the same qualities is because they both reflect painful experiences which occurred in Dickens' past.

“Hey Joe, hand me the 3/16” socket,” I mumbled into the underside of my car. I felt a nudge in my ribs as my friend, Joe, handed me the socket I asked for. Matching the ends of the hexagonal shaped socket with the stub on my wrench, I pushed the two together. A loud click signaled the two ends of the socket and wrench fit perfectly. Reluctantly, I went to work tightening the chassis of my car. I felt overwhelmed by the number of lugs I would have to check and tighten. It took me almost a half a
