He has since received numerous awards for this style, which faced a lot of opposition at first, but then came to be widely-accepted, and is more or less, the norm today.

People often make fun of Carson's success, and make it appear like people who act stupid always get ahead of those who stick to doing the 'right' thing. A popular image on social media, for instance, uses Carson's rule-breaking strategy, and the iblical example of David, the young boy who kills the mighty and armed warrior Goliath with a sling…

Supertramp' is McCandless' literary alter ego. In his writings, McCandless portrays himself as a kind of spiritual pilgrim in the last, pure place on earth -- the Great White North. Writing under a different name allows McCandless to distance himself from the very real risk he is taking, and also the callousness he shows towards those who try to help him on his journey. He refuses all aid because he sees himself as a lonely, literary character on a spiritual voyage, unencumbered by friends and family.
To give dignity to what could easily be viewed as a pointless death, Krakauer stresses McCandless' fascination with authors like Tolstoy, Thoreau, and the Gospels. These authors stress a life of simplicity and oneness with nature. Krakauer is desperate that McCandless' death 'means something.' Krakauer, in a rebuttal to accusations that McCandless' actions were selfish, includes a Tolstoy quote the young man underlined proclaiming…
There are relevant similarities and differences with these two quotes. The similarities relate to our relationships with our inner selves. Both the honor contemplated by Akhenaton and the thoughts referenced by Descartes come completely from within our own consciousness. That is to say, thinking and defining our core values are both the result of conscious acts (they are not instinctive like breathing or subconscious like dreaming) and they are both innately personal to us. Thus both quotes attempt to join our conscious selves with our innate, inner selves.
The difference between the two involves the motivation behind each quote. Descartes' quote seeks to justify man's individual existence. According to Descartes, without our thoughts, and the consequential proof that we exist, how we can believe in ourselves? Of even more import, without our thoughts to prove what are senses are perceiving, Descartes wondered how one could prove the existence of God.…

The contrast between surface appearances and true character in Shakespeare's Macbeth
hen Lady Macbeth learns that the witches have predicted that her husband Macbeth will be king she gloats and greets her husband with the words "…look like the innocent flower, / But be the serpent under't" (I.5). The fact that the three 'weird sisters' have predicted Macbeth's kingship is interpreted by Lady Macbeth as license to commit the murder of Duncan. Lady Macbeth's words indicate a contrast between 'being' and 'seeming' that runs throughout the play. Lady Macbeth urges her husband to seem as though he is loyal even while he conspires with his wife to kill the…

Quote: "CAESAR: The ides of March are come. SOOTHSAYER: Ay, Caesar; but not gone" (pp. 40, III, i, 1-2).
Paraphrase/Context: Caesar is bragging to the soothsayer that the date he was warned about has come without any danger, but the soothsayer tells him there's still time. The soothsayer had previously warned Caesar to beware this day, but Caesar doesn't pay attention and thinks it's foolish.
Analysis: This represents dramatic irony because the reader/audience knows what lies in store for Caesar, but Caesar des not. The dramatic irony is heightened even more by the fact that Caesar is even told directly many times that something is going to happen, but he refuses to believe what the audience knows to be true. It is an important way to open the scene of Caesar's murder, and makes his death more bitter and tragic because it could have been avoided.
Frida Kahlo is quoted as saying, "I suffered two grave accidents in my life. One in which a streetcar knocked me down. The other accident is Diego," (cited by Botis 1). The love relationship between Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera is one of the most famous in modern art. Their relationship was tumultuous, which seemed to be a good recipe for creativity and artistic self-expression. "It is a well-known fact that they had a passionate and stormy relationship, filled with great love and also betrayals," ("Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera" 1). The relationship between Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera shows that love, even when it is painful, can be a powerful muse.
The term muse refers to any kind of creative inspiration. The ancient Greek muses were female beings who provided inspiration for scientists, poets, musicians, and comedians (Oxford English Dictionary). A muse can be anyone, but in legend a…

One of the more famous quotes in illiam Shakespeare's Hamlet not spoken by the titular character is given early on in the play by Polonius, adviser to the king and father of Ophelia and Laertes, when he instructs his son on how to behave during his travels abroad. Polonius' instruction is so oft quoted because it plays into a certain belief regarding honesty and self-expression that is wholly unobserved in reality, offering an eloquent justification for maintaining one's sense of self by falsely insinuating that being honest with oneself automatically precludes one from being dishonest with others. This idea is ridiculous, and looking at other instances from the play itself will help to demonstrate that being true to oneself often means being dishonest with others, because one may quite easily be honest with oneself about one's dishonesty to others.
Polonius' instruction to Laertes comes after a long list…

Leno's quote about creating an artificial shortage of fish draws in some lessons about the business world to the old adage. The original adage is the first part of the quote about "Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime." This quote is talking about dependency, where the proverbial man is hungry. If you give him a fish, this is a short-term solution. He eats today, but then tomorrow he goes right back to being hungry with no fish. He needs charity again, because he lacks the skills to feed himself. When you teach him to fish, he then has the ability to feed himself. This is a skill that lasts a lifetime, so teaching the man to fish is a long-term solution to the man's hunger problem.
Leno adds the additional clause to the adage…

Paul Valery [...] Paul Valery quote "Beauty is a way of death. The novelty, the intensity, the strangeness, in a word, all the values of shock supplant it." Beauty is as intense, as strange, as novel as anything we know and appreciate. This paper will answer the question: Why is beauty so difficult to define?
BEAUTY AND NOVELTY
Paul Valery wrote, "Beauty is a way of death." This of course can be defined in many ways. Some beautiful people believe they can trust no one, because they are not appreciated for who they are, but only for their beauty, so no one really knows what is inside them. This is a form of slow death for them - never knowing, never trusting. There are other forms of beauty however, that can be strange, or novel, or intense, and this is what Valery seems to be discussing in his quote. The…

Comparative analysis of Dhowli by Mahasweta Devi and The Magic Chalk by Kobo Abe
The condition of mankind in the world is an inexhaustible source of tales and stories, one more impressive than the other. And even when the stories approach the same subject, they will still differ as the authors will address the ideas from different angles and the characters will feel different emotions.
Such is the case of Dhowli (Mahasweta Devi) and The Magic Chalk (Kabo Abe), which initially appear as two different stories, yet they also reveal some similarities in the ideas and themes approached. Both stories are strongly emotional and reveal the frustrations with the social conditions of the two characters…

Please explain as if you are speaking top managers around the corporate office for them to realize how our company is going to achieve true competitive excellence and not settle for mediocrity.
First quote: "Constant improvement in operational effectiveness is necessary to achieve superior profitability. However, it is not usually sufficient. Few companies have competed successfully on the basis of operational effectiveness over an extended period, and staying ahead of rivals gets harder every day."

Both traditional and progressive views of education take into account the needs of the student, the teacher, and the role of the curriculum. However, traditional and progressive forms of education differ greatly in their approach. In a traditional classroom, the teacher is an authority figure. The format of instruction is lecture-based with minimal opportunity for democratic participation although some question and answer sessions may follow the lecture. The teacher alone formulates the curriculum and students offer little if any input into the lesson plans. A traditional lesson plan will not include trendy issues or matters of popular culture. On the other hand, a progressive view of education espouses a highly flexible curriculum that can be creatively changed by teacher or student to reflect social trends or popular culture. Rather than the lecture format, the classroom may foster democratic discussion and encourages participation by students. Both the traditional and progressive…
'Matter is the ultimate reality: hills, trees, cities, and starts are not simply ideas in the mind of observing individuals ... "This quote assumes that an objective reality is not impacted by the observer; that there is a reality "out there" that is completely independent. It is up to us, the observer, to learn about and interpret that reality. We can therefore be mistaken about the fundamental nature of reality: as when the earth was believed to be flat. Similarly, when change occurs in nature, it always does so in accordance with the laws of nature. If human beings are surprised, they should not attribute such anomalies to supernatural forces. Rather, they should acknowledge that they need only learn more about the physical universe.
Similarly, realists believe that values, as well as reality, are "permanent and objective." The purpose of education is to ensure that each student becomes an…

"His pride," said Miss Lucas, "does not offend me so much as pride often does, because there is an excuse for it." (15)
"It has been the study of my life to avoid those weaknesses which often expose a strong understanding to ridicule."
"Such as vanity and pride."
"Yes, vanity is a weakness indeed. But pride -- where there is real superiority of mind, pride will always be under good regulation" (48)
When she thought of her mother, her confidence gave way a little; but she would not allow that any objections there had material weight with Mr. Darcy, whose pride, she was convinced, would receive a deeper wound from the want of importance in his friend's connections, than from their want of sense; and she was quite decided, at last, that he had been…
Integrating Pinker Quotes
Pinker (2003) states that, "The human mind is a blank slate" with its entire structure coming "from socialization, culture, parenting, and experience." One may consider this to mean that human beings have no nature, in the words of Jose Ortega y Gasset, a historian. This again signifies that humans have no instinct, as stated by Ashley Montagu, the anthropologist. Stephen Jay Gould, the late paleontologist and biologist, states that our brain handles a whole range of different behaviors, while being susceptible to none (Transcript of "Human nature and the blank slate," 2008).
"The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature," a book by Steven Pinker, states that this "blank slate" concept was influential, during the previous century. This was on the basis of the popular notion that our mind represents a blank slate, with its whole structure stemming from experience, socialization, culture, and parenting, indicating the…

Much of the time spent in school focuses on following arbitrary rules and not theories of importance.
This understanding places much pressure on the teacher. Directives often come from higher, demanding certain test scores be met and curriculum be tailored to more collective ideas. As a result, the very thing that empowers students is ignored. We are individuals with individual gifts and talents all worthwhile and important in way or another. Too often this quality is snuffed out of students and teachers by browbeating and disciplining actions. Although some of this is necessary, it has definitely reached a tipping point.

“A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves.” The meaning of Bertrand de Jouvenel’s statement has changed little since the French philosopher first wrote those words a hundred years ago. In fact, these words speak a timeless truth about human social behavior and political culture.
Especially in a democracy, when the people are entrusted with the power to create whatever government they desire or whatever government they believe will bring about desired outcomes, being sheepish is a dangerous proposition indeed. When people become mindless followers, succumbing to the mentality of a herd, they surrender their humanity and fail to accept the responsibility of good citizenship. Being a citizen in a democracy is a responsibility, as each person’s actions will have consequences that impact everyone else. Sheepish voters use their emotions, their gut reactions, to make political choices. They cease to think critically about political issues. Sheep…

Marginalization in The Elephant Man
David Lynch's 1980 motion picture The Elephant Man puts across an episode in nineteenth century England involving discrimination based on social class and appearance. The storyline revolves around Frederick Treves, a surgeon who had come across a curious case and who expresses particular interest in finding out more regarding it. John Merrick suffers from an intriguing medical condition and it stands as the reason for which he is harshly treated by most of the people that he interacts with. In spite of showing obvious discrepancy between social classes, the film demonstrates that lower and upper class people are united by their bizarre determination to observe and discriminate individuals displaying a visible disability.
From the very first scenes of the motion pictures viewers are presented with the difference between Treves and…

Jack Merrick's suicide
Jack Merrick, the central character in David Lynch's "The Elephant Man," is meant to express a series of feelings, most of them related to marginalization and seclusion. Merrick's principal role in nineteenth century London was that of entertaining people by allowing them to see his physical disabilities. It is not difficult to understand society made him feel about himself, considering that mostly everyone perceived him as a freak of nature. John Hurt, the actor playing Merrick, managed to present viewers with an astonishing performance, particularly considering the fact that he had to wear a mask while acting. The general plot of the film introduces the audience with the concept of hopelessness, despite Treves' determination to prove otherwise. Merrick's suicide is an act of liberation and viewers are most likely to sympathize with…

The quote any man who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new, Albert Einstein captures the essence of why many services providers including those in the medical profession set for mediocrity over continually pushing themselves for excellence. The many errors in the healthcare services industry can be attributed to outmoded, often very expensive processes that have lost touch with patients' needs (Kumar, Steinebach, 444).
Analysis of the Quote
In a paradoxical sense, the more pressure on the healthcare industry to change in terms of quality of care, with the pressure equally applied across physicians to care providers and healthcare maintenance organizations (HMO) the greater the resistance to change (Kumar, Steinebach, 444).

Jack London's novel The Call of the ild is unique because the most compelling protagonist of the book is not a human being but a dog. Buck is described as having the intelligence, strength, and capacity for loyalty comparable with a human being. Buck is tested throughout the book and finally shows himself to be the dominant dog of a pack of sled dogs and later a pack of wolves.

Alan's quote clearly illustrates the concept of 'emotional intelligence.' The theory of emotional intelligence is associated with Daniel Goleman, who suggests that success in life cannot be solely attributed to intellectual ability as measured on conventional IQ tests. (Intelligence testing is a form of cognitive psychology.) Emotional intelligence has become more accepted as a 'real' intelligence in recent years because of the growing popularity of Howard Gardner's concept of multiple intelligences, or the idea that intelligence can defined according to specific ability groupings. Alan's sense of self-reflection about his own life underlines the fact that it is possible to develop emotional intelligence, even if someone is not naturally gifted in this particular area of his or her life.
Alan is an engineer, a profession that has traditionally valued technical capacities rather than feelings. But unlike some highly successful engineers, Alan has come to realize the importance of…
As the world becomes increasingly secular and turns away from a belief in God, it has also seemed to turn away from this quest for meaning and from the need to find and fulfill some true purpose with one's life.
This does not mean, of course, that one must believe in any specific religion or even necessarily believe in God in order to try and live a meaningful and purposeful life, and indeed it could be argued that for some God and religion provided excuses not to investigate life any further, and not to make personal determinations of purpose and achievement. It would be perfectly possible for someone to determine that they needed to create their own meaning and purpose in life without any sort of reliance on an external faith. The problem is, most people don't seem to be ready or willing to do this, and so instead of…
Poisonwood ible," by arbara Kingsolver. Specifically, it will respond to this quote: "Misunderstanding is my cornerstone. It's everyone's come to think of it. Illusions mistaken for truth are the pavement under our feet. They are what we call civilization."
Everyone lives under illusions of some type of another, and some illusions are absolutely necessary for sanity and the success of civilization. If we truly believed everything in print, on the news, and on the Internet, we would go crazy. Misunderstandings and illusions are necessary to keep a balance in ourselves, and in our society. For example, the illusion, mistaken for the truth, that most politicians are honest keeps Americans voting in elections, and makes them believe that local, state, and national government is still being run by the people, when it is in reality mostly run by the big business special interest groups and lobbyists who wield the most…

rand management, as a recognized organizational objective, is attributed to Neil McElroy in 1931, who was then a junior marketing manager assigned to advertising Camay soap, and who later become Procter & Gamble's CEO. The intended purpose of brand management was to solve sales problems through the use of research to understand weakening sales in distinct markets, followed by the design and implementation of strategies to turn around these markets. Strategies used many marketing tools including advertising, pricing, promotion, packaging and displays (Aaker & Joachimsthaler, 2000). This desired objective of brand management has remained the primary role of brand managers since McElroy explicitly stated his intent in 1931. However organizations in general, and brand managers in particular, need to be aware that forces other than the strategies of brand managers will affect brands,…

He was with her a long while this time, and carried her very far, and in his arms she felt free from pain." The masculine figure takes the place of the gossamer female angel. She is about to be subsumed by the ethereal lover. "hen he laid her down on her bed again, she opened her eyes, and, for the first time in her life, she saw him, saw him clearly, though the room was dark, and his face was covered." Here, gender roles are again reversed as they are in the previous passage when the man is the angel. The man is now being veiled, his "face was covered." Veil is usually used to conceal the woman's but not the man's…

Human history shows us that the ruling elite have always tried to set the economic, educational, and social systems up in their favor and I don't believe it to be any different even in today's modern times.
"Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten." B.F. Skinner
Skinner's quote illustrates the unfortunate disconnect between what is learned and what is taught. There are many students who, when presented with a subject that is particularly interesting or motivating, actually learn about it. Skinner is saying that when people do not care about what they are learning about, and are no longer motivated to use the information, they forget it. But the fact that they were "educated" at one time or another never goes away. I agree with Mr. Skinner here because there are many examples of people who are not very intelligent who have gone to school…

eber and Spencer took this further and say the need for government control over some aspects of society, but not those that removed decisions and rights from the individual. Thus, as adults and citizens the government should offer structure and guidance in a manner that is consistent with the social goals of the Enlightenment; namely allowing actualization without overly reducing individual decisions and actualization.

Daughter of Time
"Everybody knows that Richard III, the last of the Plantagenet kings, murdered his two nephews. But everybody could be wrong -- according to Scotland Yard's Inspector Grant, who studies 500-year-old evidence to try to determine who really killed these two heirs to the British throne…"

On the initial page of author Josephine Tey's book, The Daughter of Time, the author (whose real name is Elizabeth MacKintosh and who also uses the name Gordon Daviot) embraces the quote, "Truth is the Daughter of Time." That is an appropriate use of the proverb because much of the discussion of Tey's fictitious historical novel centers on the concepts of truth and perception when it comes to King Richard III.

By looking at several rather simplistic concepts designed by Charles Eames, one can observe what he's referring to in that quote. Something as simple as a plywood elephant, a hanger or some chairs can have an intense effect on viewers, as it invites them to analyze them deeper and to concentrate on elements coming together in creating these respective works.
Although it would be hard to question the message, it would also be difficult to refrain from looking at designs as a whole. Especially considering the superficial nature of the contemporary society, it would be safe to say that people today simply 'have no time' to stop and 'smell the roses'.
Although not necessarily part of a subculture, Eames managed to create a lot of controversy through his works. Many of his contemporaries felt that they didn't understand him while others were impressed and invested all of their support in…

Apple 1997 Commercial
"the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
1997 Apple Commercial -- Think Different
In 1997 Apple launched a promotional campaign that asked people to "think different." In one of their commercials they portray famous world rebels such as Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, and Martin Luther King. They say that it is the people who are not interesting in following the status quo that are responsible for change in the world. The quote "think different" has meaning both by itself and as something of an ulterior marketing motive for Apple Computers. People in all generations have asked people to think differently in different terms. or example, today's catch phrase is to "think outside the box" and people also speak of paradigm change.
or Apple computers, they were seeking to change the way that people interacted with their…
For Apple computers, they were seeking to change the way that people interacted with their devices. The market at the time was dominated by Windows-based computers. However, Apple had imposed a strategy in which they targeted the youth demographics. They offered promotions such as inexpensive desktop units to schools. Many schools took advantage of this and as a consequence many young people learned the Apple platform. However, this was only one component of trying to capture the attention of youth demographics.
Apple knew that they were on the verge of a new generation that would live a digital lifestyle. However the company experienced remarkable obstacles in the 1990s. In fact, the business was on the threshold of bankruptcy in 1996. It was during that period that Jobs created a strategy known as the "digital hub." This strategy considered various peripheral devices as part of an overall integrated system that consumers would use with the Mac at the center of it all. Eventually this strategy led to the development of the iPod, then later the iPhone, and most recently the iPad. The idea was that computer was only a piece of a larger system that allowed users accessibility to other digital needs. This strategy represents a key innovation that was arguably the primary reason that the company to become the one of the most valuable companies on the planet.
The concept behind "think differently" is both powerful and cliche at the same time. It is powerful if it gets people to look at things from a different perspective; a perspective that may not adopt a consumerist lifestyle. Many of the people that are portrayed in Apple's commercial would most likely not be Apple users. Thus it is also cliche in the sense that the concept of "think differently" is thrown around without much weight. Many people appreciate the concept on the surface without really understanding its power and its merit. Though the commercial was a success for Apple and helped springboard their marketing program, it is my opinion that simply buying an Apple product does not help one to "think different."

gestures, I realized that I needed a bit more understanding regarding my own approach to non-verbal communication. I began by asking friends and associates about my non-verbal traits, and was actually surprised at their views telling me that often non-verbally I was more expressive than verbally.
Learning about non-verbal communication, I found that it is much more than gesture, and includes looks, dress, hair style, jewelry, and more -- everything and every message we send to the outside world unspoken, but nevertheless important and meaningful. When we use non-verbal gestures, for instance, we can communicate a great deal through our body posture, facial expressions, arm & hand gestures, or combinations. When we speak, we use tone, timbre, style and rhythm to emphasize or express emotion, but because our communications are co complex, some experts believe that depending on the culture, over 80% of human communication has an element of non-verbalness.…
Sometimes to deconstruct what someone else says or how they say it -- for instance overhearing students talk about a particular novel or painting and then using air-quotes to mimic what they said in a sarcastic movement.
This got me thinking -- do I use air-quotes as a way to be pretentious and all-knowing; sending messages that other people do not know what they are talking about, then I use the air-quote as a way to de-emphasize and deconstruct what they had to say. I began to ask friends and relatives about this; some said it was topic dependent, others mood dependent -- that when I am relaxed and having fun with friends, the topics can get more lively as the even progresses, thus allowing me more of an opportunity to poke fun at nearly everything for its veracity. For instance, note how air quotes are used in this political speech to really negate everything anyone else says about the matter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGZOyxfiNoU .
My analysis tells me that I must like this gesture and use it as a way to express my discontent with the viewpoint, score, estimate, and call into question the facts that are either supposed to be common knowledge or facts given to us by various speakers. Because I think I overuse this gesture, which then ends up having the opposite point it is intended, I am going to work on using the air-quote less and only in situations in which I have a very strong opinion about someone else's truth. One of my friends commented that now it actually looks like I do not really believe in anything anyone says because everything has an air-quote around it, giving it a sense of disbelief in the first place. To de-emphasize this use, though, took realization, research into my own use of this gesture, and having friends and parents watch out and warn me about it when I've use it in the last 3-4 sentences.
Synthesis: This quote is similar to a comment Nick makes about the Tom and Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald's the Great Gatsby: "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy -- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made" (188). Though the Buchanans are not exactly like Mama Elena in their motives, and completely unlike her in their "carelessness" because Mama Elena's destructive impulses are controlled and purposeful, both quotes demonstrate the selfishness and amount of control that the characters involved like to exert on the others around them.

African Restaurants in NYC
The restaurant's soft industrial lighting makes the chrome gleam. A soft and expansive backdrop of blue gives the space a cool and slightly futuristic industrial like a hip loft in the future. Exposed brick walls are tinged in a blue sheen and the distressed wood chairs and tables have been stained steel gray and have marble table tops. In three weeks, Cisse Elhadji, the owner of Ponty Bistro in Midtown, will open his new restaurant La Terengea. Located at 144 West 139th St., the restaurant us nestled in between the Hudson and Harlem rivers a few blocks west of the City College of New York.

t seems there is very little we have done in raq that is in any way honorable. t is common knowledge, now, that there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction, and therefore precious little excuse for the war. However, it is true, also beyond question, that Saddam Hussein was a vicious and brutal dictator who kept his nation in line by virtue of excesses of every sort. One of his sons is reputed to have shredded foes in paper shredders. So perhaps the global community is better off rid of him.
None of that excuses the actions of the United States, both its top administration and its military. After exposure of their activities at Abu Ghraib Prison, and in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, their activities are very little better than the unconscionable activities of the Hussein family. Perhaps it…
If we are ever to see the abuses carried out by our military stopped and amends made, if we are ever to regain our reputation as a moral nation with high ideals, one of which is the humane and ethical treatment of all people (repeat ALL PEOPLE), then we must not confirm another Attorney General who is committed to destroying the foundation of American ideals, the U.S. Constitution, nor who ignores the demands of international law among nations of good will.
A November 11, 2004, report in The Washington Post by Dan Eggen noted the ways Gonzales, currently White House counsel, disregards and disrespects the American Way as it was once known, and the Geneva Conventions' requirements as recognized by all civilized nations. Eggen quoted Gonzales' January 2002 memo in which he "argued that the war on terrorism made the Geneva Conventions' limitations on treatment of enemy prisoners 'obsolete' and 'renders quaint some of its provisions'." He also noted that Gonzales' office "played a role in an August 2002 memo from the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel" that rendered the opinion "that torturing alleged al Qaeda terrorists in captivity abroad 'may be justified' and that international laws against torture 'may be unconstitutional if applied to interrogations' conducted in the U.S. war on terrorism."

A round character has multiple dimensions as a human being, and strikes more than one 'note' in the text -- for instance, the snobbish Mrs. Elton of Emma is a one-dimensional presence in that novel, while Hardy's Bathsheba is contradictory as a real human being, and one cannot predict her likely actions.
Retrospective narration is narrated from the point-of-view of a present day narrator, looking into the far-off past of a long-ago world, like Hardy's third person omniscient narrator of Far from the Madding Crowd, or a narrator looking back on his own life, like Dickens' David Copperfield.

Quote: "The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean."
Robert Louis Stevenson really like this quote because I think it very clearly illustrates the main problem that writing is concerned with -- communication. It is impossible to say anything -- let alone say it well -- if you do not know what you mean. I think that clarity of thought and clarity of words are completely united, and this quote is a very eloquent way of illustrating this connection concisely.
A also think that this quote neatly expresses how difficult it can be to fully communicate a thought. It is even possible that true and full communication is actually impossible. Because words mean slightly different things to each listener and/or reader, communicating exactly what you mean cannot really happen, because there is no totally common language in which to communicate.

The author provides a survey of the literature illustrating applied experimental research methods in cross-sections of business and organization types. The advantages and disadvantages of the experimental research methods are discussed for each of the examples provided which run the gamut from depression-era agricultural economics to research conducted for the National Science Institute. While the article focuses on business research methods, the range of examples from multiple disciplines serves to demonstrate the adaptability of various methods to distinct contexts, the importance of thoughtfully developed research questions, and perceptions in the field regarding scientific rigor. The article is intended to guide students in their exploration of the breadth and depth of experimental research methods and to convey a sense of the challenges of applied scientific inquiry.

"Catherine's face was just like the landscape -- shadows and sunshine flitting over it in rapid succession; but the shadows rested longer, and the sunshine was more transient..." Chapter 27,
This quote reveals a strong metaphor, describing Catherine's face as being "just like the landscape." Doing this not only provides brilliant imagery but also links Catherine to the land, and to her home, prevalent themes in Bronte's work. Catherine has essentially become spiritually one with the land in which she lives, anchoring her in geographic space and time. All issues of ownership of property, especially given Heathcliff's use of property ownership as a means to assert his political and social power, revert to Catherine.
Moreover, Bronte is sure to point out that the landscape of Catherine's face is filled with "shadows and sunshine," which are "flitting over it in rapid succession." This is an extension of the metaphor, showing…
And had Bucke never read any of hitman's earlier poetry (Leaves of Grass, for example) "we might think that words could not convey greater passion" than they did in Drum-Taps (p. 171).

hen assessing women's original nature and how it is manifested and displayed in Oliver Twist, it becomes clear that the three main female characters all portray a different version of how women can be perceived and render themselves. Rose, Agnes and Nancy. However, the exploration of women's nature and how it was defined in the Victorian age need not be limited to those three. It is illuminating and revealing how Dickens poses and presents the women of Oliver Twist and the reactions that tend to be elicited by those that read and review this work. On the whole, it is obvious and clear that Dickens levied a full-frontal assault against the system and regimentation that were held against women, the poor and the ruffians of society. As it pertains to women, this obviously included the concept and idea that woman that keep themselves virginal, prim…

This passage is indicative of the depths to which Heathcliff has sunk. The quote elucidates his character as he descends into being an abusive father. Heathcliff views his son as a tool to be used to gain property, referring to Linton as "mine," not in the sense of paternal love but because Linton can be "prospective owner of your place." Heathcliff means by this that he wants Thrushcross Grange, not for the money or even the status, but as a means to secure symbolic vengeance and power over Edgar. Linton's name becomes increasingly symbolic at this time.
Heathcliff also reveals the depth of his anger, sorrow, loneliness, and despair in this passage. The reader wonders if he is actually truthful when he states, "I despise him for himself, and hate him for the memories he revives!" Heathcliff must feel a lot of dredged up emotions upon encountering Linton, who…
Coker's article (published in a very conservative magazine in England) "reflected unease among some of his colleagues" about that new course at LSEP. Moreover, Coker disputes that fact that there is a female alternative to male behavior and Coker insists that "Whether they love or hate humanity, feminists seem unable to look it in the face" (Smith quoting Coker, p. 58).
If feminists are right about the female nature being more peaceful and "less aggressive" than men, then women pose a "far greater danger than men…" to the world and to international relations Coker continued. It was a less aggressive attitude toward international relations that "prevented us from deterring Hitler," Coker went on, referencing (without naming) Neville Chamberlain, England's Prime Minister who reportedly appeased Hitler rather than take a strong stand against the Third Reich.
On page 58 Steve Smith explains that in cases where feminine concerns are being…

Mookie's frustrated acts show that violence is sometimes justified as a means of "self-defense," in Malcolm X's words. Bigger did not have access to the words of wisdom of either Malcolm X or Martin Luther King Jr. More importantly, Bigger did not have access to a community of like-minded African-Americans who could sympathize with if not totally condone the use of violence to preserve cultural integrity and pride.
Mookie and Bigger are remarkably similar, proving that little has actually changed for African-Americans in terms of gaining social and political power even after the Civil Rights movement. Richard Wright's novel Native Son illustrates the extent of racial discrimination during the early half of the twentieth century; Spike Lee's movie "Do the Right Thing" reveals the extent of racial discrimination during the latter half of the century. The protagonists in Native Son and "Do the Right Thing" live in different times and…
As Baigent and Leigh point out, von Stauffenberg's co-conspirators were "aristocratic" men who despised what they now knew to be a murderous regime (26). However, it was Stauffenberg who was "the most active leader in the conspiracy against Hitler," which is exactly how Operation Valkyrie is portrayed (Hoffman xiv). The close relationship between Nina Stauffenberg and her husband is rendered thinly but at least accurately in the film, based on what historian Hoffman has to say. Although there are several other ancillary characters that were not addressed or developed in Valkyrie, the filmmakers chose what are arguably some of the most historically important in terms of the attempted assassination of Hitler.
Of course, the central event of Valkyrie is the attempted but failed assassination of Hitler. Interviews with Berthold von Stauffenberg, the Colonel's son, verify the accuracy of the historical events that shaped his father's life. For instance, Jones claims…
