  • Place In A Western Civilization
    834 words
    There are many different roles for women shown in "The Canterbury Tales" and "The Decameron". Both books take place around the same time frame, 1300 AD. "The Canterbury Tales", takes place in London, England and "The Decameron" takes place in Florence, Italy. It would be just to think that since both books take place in a western civilization, both books would reflect the same morals and daily life styles. This is not the case at all. Throughout this paper I will attempt to show how these two bo...

    It is just a fact we all must die! Some of us are afraid of the uncertainty that death brings. Therefore, it is regarded as an enemy, a tragedy, and the unavoidable downside of life. Others live day by day knowing that death will come, but they have no fear. They are not in a hurry to meet him, but are making preparations for the encounter.

    Personal Essay: The Drainpipe For a half hour, every school day, for a few months, I was really happy. A friend and I would go to the drainpipe, and we would sit, talk, eat our lunches, and listen to my walkman. It was the perfect place: It was quiet, beautiful, and it was full of peace. It didn't matter whether it was cold or hot, somehow you didn't feel anything sitting on that drainpipe. You would feel the wind on your face, and it made your face cold, but inside, you felt warm and cozy, and ...
  • Hell Just Four Months

    It was a cold and damp morning, the moisture stuck to skin like flies to fly paper. The loud thud thud thud of the helicopters had awaken me from my trance, after two and half hours of sleep. I had risen just in time for a fresh cup of coffee when all of the sudden a chopper touched down just outside the barracks kicking up all the debris and dirt it could find. The night before had been a hellish one, the mortar blasts and screams of my fellow soldiers had kept me awake nearly all night. And ho...

This happens later on in the stage. When they are new-born they have no con...

    Thoreau believed in "Living deep and sucking all the marrow out of life", and so he lived on Walden Pond for two years to see how he could simplify in order to live to the fullest.

So there are a number of us hanging around talking afterwards and we all decided that we needed to get some beer and go hangout somewhere and try and forget about the beating we had just gotten in the game earlier that night. We all chipped in and one of the guys made a beer run. When he got back we decided that it wasn't a good idea to stick ...
  • Place

    Just when you think the shelf life has expired on Volkswagen's Cabrio ad, it resurfaces with a vengeance. The commercial became an instant classic when it debuted last year with its breezy, low-key portrayal of a midsummer night's ride with the top down under a blanket of stars. You can almost hear the crackle of fireflies hitting the windshield. But you don't. Instead, you hear a soft, soothing voice. The spare strumming of an acoustic guitar. A simple melody full of wistful introspection. And ...

  • Ten Commandments In A Courthouse
    379 words
    I believe that the Ten Commandments have a rightful place in any courthouse who would like to display them in their courthouse. This case has come up in several different states and the results vary. They say it is unconstitutional because of separation of state, but I believe they are wrong. Showing the Ten Commandments in a courthouse does not cross the line of church and state. Although the ten commandments originated from the Bible, Torah, and other religions it is one of the earliest sets o...
