I wonder how she does it, holding it together the way she does.
It seems no matter how life gets out of place she puts it back the way it was.
It's always been a mystery, but I guess it must be true.
That there is nothing stronger than a mother's love when she uses Mother's Glue.
Now Mother's Glue is not a recipe, or that sticky stuff used in art.
But it's that special love that mothers use to keep your life from falling apart.
It's the way she is always there to listen so you know that everything will be okay.
It's that special bonding hug she gives you to help you make it through the day.
It's the way she is able to...VIEW DOCUMENT

Many people have heroic qualities but being a hero and having heroic qualities are completely different. No one can learn how to be a hero and no one can teach it. A hero should know how to decide what is right, what is wrong, and what to stand for. A hero is someone that you see as being higher than you in strength, greatness and confidence. You wish someday that you could be just like them. And when you get to their point of greatness you long to go higher. You look past the fame and the media to what is inside. No one else may see it but you know that it is there, greater than anything. They may not think of themselves as heroes or great, but to you they are. You see them...VIEW DOCUMENT
There is nothing to admire in any member of the Simms. Do you agree?
I think that this statement is too blunt. There are characteristics of everyone that we should admire. There is one obvious member of the Simms family that we can admire, Jeremy. While other members of the family we dislike due to them being racist. We seem to forget that these people were living in an unjust and unequal community. It was normal for white people to think that they were superior to black people, "that's the way of things." I'm not condoning racist behaviour in anyway, but I am saying that everyone has a good quality and...VIEW DOCUMENT

The idea that "things do not change, we do" is incorrect. Although it can be the case at times, it is entirely inaccurate as the phrase "we do" in this view can be easily replaced by "circumstances". "Things" may not change, but circumstances, which we usually have no control over, certainly do change. Also, this view can be rearranged to state "things change, we don't", showing that people may be resistant to change. The main focus of the book Things...VIEW DOCUMENT
When I was ten my parents finally broke down and got me a dog. We had had one before, but it had a problem locating the acceptable areas to mark its territory, and my little sister was just starting to crawl. Not a good combination. Now she was finally capable of discerning what was edible.
We got a one year old golden retriever from a friend who was allergic to it. His name was Gideon. The first day we met him, he took a liking to me; he chased me around and would not stop licking me unless I pet him (the dog, not the friend). His...VIEW DOCUMENT
"Is 10 things I hate about you an effective transformation which enriches the original text"In The Taming of the Shrew, there is a strong undercurrent of issues such as roles of women in society, appearance versus reality and the love of wealth which men have. Shakespeare portrays lively characters to depict these universal concepts and thus critiques the social conventions of patriarchal society. Gil Jugner has adaptedVIEW DOCUMENT

If I ever had three wishes that I could make to change my parents, I would never use them. The perfect parents are the ones I have now. Although there is no such thing as a perfect parent, there is such a thing as a good one. Maybe no one is perfect, though many of us wish we were! They understand me and know that at times it's best to let me decide what's right or wrong for me. They talk to me and they don't get mad at the things I say. They treat me most of the time as an adult. To be honest with you, I wouldn't want a parent that bought me everything I wanted, and did anything I wanted. There is such a thing as "too much of a good thing." Our parents have to raise us in a caring,...VIEW DOCUMENT

A dedicated athlete, I placed tenth in the 1997 Boston Marathon. Surprisingly enough, my participation was actually something of a whim. Prior to the race, I regularly ran four miles per day, but was not competitive with those who competed internationally. Yet I was intrigued by the allure of the Boston Marathon and couldn't resist the urge to participate. As I investigated different training regimes, the enormity of the challenge sank in. The regimes required an aggressive eighteen-week period and a minimum of four days a week: a high commitment. The duration of these runs also increased throughout...VIEW DOCUMENT

The idea of an individual disregarding their own reputation is shown in the song 'Bad Reputation' written by Joan Jett. The individual demonstrates this concept by being untroubled by the thoughts and opinions of others, not doing things just to please others and being rebellious. This idea also runs through the play "Taming of The Shrew", written by William Shakespeare 1592, and the movie "VIEW DOCUMENT
Oberon and Titania are the King and Queen of the fairies respectively. They have fallen out over a 'changeling child'. A 'changeling' being a human baby that has been stolen into the fairy world and a weak fairy child was left in its place (protected from discovery by a fairy glamour spell that would render the image of the original baby over it). Oberon wants the child to become a soldier and Titania wants it to be her prince and rule with her. Their arguments cause changes to the mortal world, such as the weather changing suddenly to thunder storms as a result of their feuding. Oberon and Titania are two of the...VIEW DOCUMENT
The inability to overcome physical or emotional temptation flaws all humans to some extent, but what make an individual morally reprehensible? In O'Connor's story "The Life You Save May Be Your Own" she paints a complex and elegant answer to the question. Every character in the story has a physical impairment lending to the idea of outward deformities being metaphors for emotional inadequacy. Mr. Tom T. Shiflet lacks the most physically therefore craves the semblance of completeness, but during the process sacrificed moral fortitude. Chekov said, "In the...VIEW DOCUMENT
Flannery O'Connor's style of southern gothic writing, with her background of Christianity, collaborate for some controversial and unorthodox symbolism. In her short story The Life You Save May Be Your Own, O'Connor incorporates numerous symbols to emphasize her theme. O'Connor's use of symbolism filters into the names and traits of her characters, the dimensions of her setting, and the events of her plot.
Mr. Shiftlet is a man who doesn't know what he wants. Throughout the...VIEW DOCUMENT
In the early 1800s a number of French explorers visited the south west coast of Australia. The British, who were at war with the French at that time, became concerned that a French presence in the south west of the continent could endanger trade with the eastern colonies. In 1819 Phillip Parker King and his crew patrolled the southwest, although it was not until his second voyage in 1822 that they made landfall on "Rottenest".
Settlement of the Swan River Colony began in 1829, and interest was shown almost immediately in Rottnest as a secure place with the potential for salt harvesting, farming and fishing. Rottnest was surveyed with provision for a town in 1830, and in 1831 William...VIEW DOCUMENT
Does your environment shape your personality and the way you act? I completely agree with the fact that, one's environment is the main factor of shaping one's personality. I find that many teenagers including myself are very easily influenced by what they see and hear. For example, some teenagers are different and are more interested in the material they read on the Internet and the newspaper. Television adds for make up or clothes can easily attract our attention. Although many of us teenagers live up to a standard so they can fit into a crowd at school. The newspaper articles and stories we read and hear about can grab our attention very easily.

There is no doubt that The Roman Empire was one of the greatest empires ever to have existed. The foundations that led to the development of this empire were its military, its geographical region, and most importantly of all its cunning leadership. These factors led to the creation of an unassailable empire that set out to conquer the world. Four aspects of the Roman Empire really grabbed my attention: the military, the republic, the social classes, and the pride of the people.
The Roman military was fierce and undefeatable. Their art of war was superior, and their tactics were very...VIEW DOCUMENT

Apart from the fact that the were mixed emotions towards his actions that evening I found that Catherine had seemed to disown him.

I believe Mr. Stratford's determination in not allowing his daughters to date is influenced partly by his career and dealing with the outcomes of irresponsibly handled situations that he sees everyday. As a father Mr. Stratford is naturally overprotective, however to the become a single parent bestows a great deal more stress and responsibility on his life, which he then may express as insecure actions for example not allowing his daughters to date. By restricting them from dating until they graduate he believes he is doing the right thing and stopping them form making life affecting decisions. However by thinking he is safely protecting his daughters he is losing sight of their...VIEW DOCUMENT

Have you ever had a feeling you had found the answers to life? For a slight moment in my life, I did. It was a feeling no person or object could make me feel. To me, it was an enlightening experience I will never forget. It left me with morals and values that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
