Patience and caring in the lady of shallot

In these essay i am going to be writing about two important values which you must apply to live a better life and its relation with the story “the lady of shallot”, these values are patience and caring, before i can tell you about them i need to explain you their meanings, patience is the ability to endure difficult circumstances such as perseverance in the face of delay; tolerance of provocation without responding in annoyance or angry, and the meaning of caring is being able to feel, think, and act in the interest of others, oneself, and the environment. In my opinion i think that the patience is shown in the story as when the lady was waiting in the island of shallot because she was not able to go outside because of a curse someone made on her and i also saw the value of caring when she every day saw on the magic mirror where she look outside to camelot and one day she saw a knight and fall in love with him and always care of him when he went to battle Another example of caring is w…

A modest proposal

In this essay im going to explain the relation between these two important values which are fairness and justice in the story of a modest proposal, first of all in order for me to talk about this i nerd you to clearly understand what does this teo values mean, fairness is the quality of treating people equally or in a way that is right or reasonable, and justice is the condition of being morally correct or fair. the story “ a modest proposal” takes place in ireland, ireland was having very bad economic crisis because every money that there were gaining they were giving it all to england, other big problem that they were having was the overpopulation specially from poor people, poor moms had lots of kids which were poor too and that was causing overpopulation, the autor of the story, Jonathan swift wanted to do a modest proposal to end with this problem so he proposed to the poor people that the give their childs in sell so rich people can buy them and eat them,with this Ireland will ha…

Gratefulness and trustworthiness in “the diary of samuel pepys”

There are two important values im going to write about taking in count the story of “samuel pepys” ,these two values are  trustworthiness and gratefulness first of all in order for me to write about this i need to explain  in what consists these two values, trustworthiness means is when you can completely trust in someone that this person will never tell nobody the secrets you tell to him or her, and gratefulness is when you are completely grateful about all the things god have gave to you in the course of your life , that you don’t need nothing more in order to be a happy person. Now in the story of the diary of samuel pepys there talks about a man named samuel who in my opinion at the beginning of the story doesn’t  show to much ant of these two values in exception of one moment when samuel was so great-full because he could be present when the king arrive, then when there was  the catastrophe of the fire in london as the fire at the beginning doesn’t affect him at all, neither to h…

what virtues must have a person today to make earth a better place to live in

A great crisis of our times is failure to realize that we have a drive to make the world we live in a better place. All animals have a drive to make their environment better, albeit, applied to other animals, “better” just means safer, more comfortable, or pleasurable. For humans, the term also means fairer and more moral. Of course, “better” is a relative term, sometimes confused with “great” or “good” or “acceptable.” Because we’re highly limited in making the world we live in great or good or even acceptable, we lose sight of the need to make it better. Yet the smallest ways of making the world better can ultimately be the most potent, by virtue of the butterfly effect, where the smallest change in one part of the ecosystem affects large changes in other parts. The psychological mechanism of the butterfly effect is composed of the fundamental ways that social animals, including humans, communicate and cooperate: modeling, emotional display, and mimicry. Modeling is simply exhibiting th…

My legend: The Great evil mommy

There was a great mother who loves unconditionally her son named david, he was a great son who behaves good and studied in a very religious school in which there also were his friends who misbehaved and do bad things to incriminate him, one day those kids killed an animal and let it in the middle of the school and with its blood they wrote “David” in the floor so all the school thinks that the one who killed the animal was him. The principal who was bad saw this and expelled the kids including david and later he killed them, the mom of david was filled of angry and sadness so she committed suicide, now people say that the great evil mommy goes at midnight searching for kids that misbehaves and when she found them she killed them but if one of the kids manages to scape she search for him until she found him and hide behind his bed to kill him, it is said that kids must ring a bell to advice his real moms so they won’t be killed but this actually never works because the great evil mommy…

Colombia/barranquilla, my neighborhood

Barranquilla is a port at the North Coast of Colombia, a city with a little more than a million people. For many years, Barranquilla was a very important trading port and therefore, lots of those traders decided to settle down there. As a matter of fact, I think you may have heard about a certain Colombian musician of Arab origin from Barranquilla, her name is Isabel Mebarak Ripoll but some also call her Shakira. Shakria’s hips are reportedly some of the most honest in showbusiness Above all, Barranquilla is where the biggest Carnival in Colombia is held. Due to its amazing cultural display, El Carnaval de Barranquilla was proclaime  by UNESCO, in November 2003, as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. It’s second only to the Carnival in Rio in terms of size and, of course, fun! There are four main Carnival days, you can feel the ambiance changing weeks prior to it, when the Carebeann rhythm of carnival music fills the air in anticipation of the festival…
