  • Escape Toward A Better Life
    2,826 words
    The Pursuit of True Happiness Anne Tyler has said that she uses the family unit to show how people manage to endure together how they grate against each other, adjust, intrude, and protect themselves from intrusions, give up, and start all over again in the morning, (Applebee et al. 1007). From this quote, a reader can assume that Tyler encourages perseverance and courage. Life all too often presents challenges, but it is how you handle those challenges that matters. Throughout many of her ficti...

  • Curley's Property
    306 words
    Dear Diary, I really have no idea how much longer I can stand living here. I'm lonely here. The other women from town who I used to talk with live too far away from Tyler Ranch. Curley doesn't talk much to me, as always, but then again... I really don't enjoy talking to him either. He's a truly malevolent person; I've never heard him say anything good about anyone... not even his own father! I don't think he truly cares for me, either. He sees me as his property, and sometimes he even vents out ...

  • Problems In The Farm Life
    449 words
    Farm Life Isn t Easy! Life as a farmer was by no means easy. There were a lot of problems and strains, but it had its good points. The Homestead Act passed in 1862 by Congress gave 160 free acres of prairie land to anyone who would live on it for five years. A lot of farmers also bought land from the Railroad Company so they could be close to the transcontinental railroad tracks, which made transportation better. Though the land was free, the problems nearly outweighed the advantages. The first ...
  • Hope For A Better Life
    265 words
    CANDIDE PAPER I think the old woman didn't kill herself even though she had such a tough life and thought about suicide a hundred times because there is always hope for a better life. I think that was one of Voltaire's biggest messages in Candide. Throughout the story, Candide, along with everyone else in the story, had points in there life where they were either on top or as low as a servant. The two main philosophers in the story contribute to the message. Pang loss, who believes that everythi...

    Everyone is affected by certain events or individuals that greatly change their life. Many people have influenced me during my life.

For me, I have two people that play a large role in my life. The first person is my Cross Country coach, Fred Rosenfeld. He is a man that pushes me to my very limits, physically. I have unfortunately not thought of h...
