This quote is: 'He had lived always in the future, and the present always, always had slipped through his fingers.' In and of itself, this is a very powerful quote.

  • World Today Chemicals Plants Quote

    The following quote "The sedge is with'd from the lake, And no birds sing," (Keats) seems like a very simple sentence with no meaning to it. However, after reading Chapter 6 of Silent Spring, I realized how loaded the comment is with meaning. The quote is describing humans and how humans treat the plants here on earth. The quote describes a scene where humans continue to destroy plants because they feel that they are in the way or that the plants are not appealing to look at. However, the plants...

    "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." This quote is an opinion. The person that said this could have meant a number of things by it. However, I believe this quote to be true. Power corrupts. This means, to me, that when a person has power somehow they are corrupted or that the person with the power, corrupts the things they have power over. The next part of the quote is "absolute power corrupts absolutely," this means that a person with absolute power will absolutely corrupt h...
  • Scarlet Letter Scaffold Scenes
    670 words
    In Nathaniel Hawthorne's, The Scarlet Letter, the author uses three scaffold scenes to mark the development of Hester Prynne. The image of Hester atop the scaffolding is a metaphor for her forced solitude; for her banishment from society; and for the futility of her punishment. In the first scene, Hawthorne uses the scaffold to explain how Hester can not believe that the 'A'; and the baby are real. In the second scaffold scene, Hawthorne tries to convey to the reader that Hester has fully repent...

    337 words
    Shakespeare Coriolanus Journal 1'I sin in envying his nobility; And were I any thing but what I am, I would wish me only he. Aufidius-Act 1 sc. 1 page 230 I think this quote describes the love of Coriolanus. Coriolanus longs to encounter Aufidius man-to-man. Aufidius, on his end, welcomes Coriolanus to his side He goes so far as to say that his passion for Coriolanus is as great as his love for the 'maid I married'. Whether Aufidius loves Coriolanus in this passionate sense is problematical. Bu...

    ESSAY "The test of a courageous person is the ability to bear heart."

  • A Doll's House Essay
    372 words
    "Good literature substitutes for an experience which we have not ourselves lived through" is a quote stated by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. This quote is properly interpreted as that literature is used as a leeway for people to feel and go through experiences to which they are restricted to in their lives. This is an agreeable quote because there are so many things in life that are within limit, and good literature helps pacify those yearnings for going somewhere and experiencing things beyond unyiel...

  • Sexual Nature Power Erdrich Water

    In Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich I have most definitely noticed the motif of sexual nature as a form of power. It is interesting how this sexual power can be represented in different ways (e. g. as a biblical allusion or metaphor). Erdrich has a way of expressing the power that sexual nature bears in a way that really conveys significance to the reader. Her vivid imagery lets the reader really feel the power that resides in all of our sexual nature. Erdrich uses a water metaphor to embody sex...
