The friend whom I love and cherish most, though, is not even a human being, but a horse. I call him Teddy Bear, or Teddy for short. Before I had him, I owned a number of other horses, each very special, but as difficult as it is to admit, Teddy is my favorite.
I saw Teddy for the first time two months ago. A young boy brought him over from the Netherlands but had grown too tall and was forced to sell him. Teddy arrived at my barn before anyone even knew he was for sale. Although I was not in the market for a new horse, my trainer immediatelyVIEW DOCUMENT

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." Helen Keller
Twelve years ago, at the birthday party of a friend, was the first time I met somebody my own age who had a disability. He was tall for his age, thin, and wore eyeglasses, just like I did. It was this commonality that initially attracted me to him, since I didn't know very many kindergartners who wore glasses. I had begun wearing glasses to correct a case of strabismus at age two, and was able to see perfectly when I put them on. However, I was not aware of the fact that his glasses did very little to sharpen his vision, and that he was legally blind.

Together me and Avery shared the same hobbies and disliked the same things. We loved listening to Rock-n-Roll, played softball, and got dirty. After school, we would play outside, and come home with bruises and scrapes on our hands and knees and dirt everywhere.

When I first met Josh I wasn't overly impressed. I had walked into a Hooters restaurant to dine with friends, and sitting at the table that greeted me was Josh. I didn't notice his rugged good looks. I didn't pause to gaze down upon his broad shoulders, and thick chest. I hardly noticed the caramel color of his eyes, nor his nicely manicured goatee.

The sun rose, leaving a glare on the television screen. Images of the crashing cars hid behind white light, and frustrated by the forces beyond his control, he sat back, waiting to lose.

Trust is like a brick wall.You build it up brick by brick, but a lie can make it all fall apart. My parents have told me, “Trust is slow to get, but quick to lose.” In other words, trust must be built up by time. Honesty is a big part of trust. Not being honest can change everything.

Numerous amount of times these settings are produced based on the life in which the author lives. Charles Dickens is no different. In the midst of most of his novels, Dickens exposes the deception of Victorian England and the strict society that holds everything together. In Dickens' novel Our Mutual Friend, a satire is created where the basis of the novel is the mockery against money and morals. Throughout this novel, multiple symbols and depictions of the characters display the corruption of the mind that surrounds social classes in Victorian England.

When Horatio, at the end of the soliloquy, enters and greets Hamlet, it is evident that he and Hamlet have not recently met at Elsinore. Yet Horatio came to Elsinore for the funeral (I.ii. 176). Now even if the funeral took place some three weeks ago, it seems rather strange that HamletVIEW DOCUMENT

One of the most hotly debated topics between pet owners has been the differences between cats and dogs. This is because each of these pets offers its own unique qualities that millions of people love. As someone who has owned both cats and dogs for many years, I appreciate many of the different qualities of these two animals. Both exhibit their own unique qualities that people need to take into account when choosing between them; however, I believe dogs are the better pet because they are more sociable, smarter, and more loyal to their owners.
The first reason dogs are more superior than cats is because the dog is a more sociable animal. A dog’s natural tendency is to be aVIEW DOCUMENT
