English Exam EssayFirst SemesterThe world doesn't care about your self-esteem; the world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself. The three pieces of literature that I chose for this essay are "The Anthem", "Susan B. Anthony", and "Frederick Douglas". The preceding literary texts exemplify my thesis on the matter that they required their utmost attention and will for the things most important to them. In today's world, an education is your most valuable tool to aid success.Flipping burgers isn't below dignity; grandparents have a different word for burger flipping, they called it an opportunity. In "Frederick Douglas", Frederick craved learning. Every attempt in pursuing his passion formed a constant danger especially if discovered, it meant a sever lashing or worse. Any job Frederick acquired, he examined his surroundings "While firing a boiler in a Baltimore shipyard, he saw that the carpenters marked letters on the timber according to the part of the ship for which it was intended" (J.A.

Undeterred by men and their laws, Susan and a group of fellow activists bartered their way into a voting arena and cast their ballots. Although arrested, the daring move set many other accomplishments for the movement into motion. Although Susan died over a century before women gained the right to vote, she gave it a step or two in the right direction. Lengths taken by all characters are still considered enormous.Life's not fair, get used to it. Frederick Douglas' childhood drastically affected his chances for success. Born into a poor slave family, Frederick grew up on a cold dirt floor in a one room hut. At age, Frederick lived with his grandmother instead of his mother. Missed opportunity following missed opportunity, Frederick finally escaped to the North cleverly disguising himself as a sailor. Once on Union land, Frederick's success grew.
