A Wonderful Friend

...me, she is a wonderful person. In the period of our friendship, there were a lot of things that I know about her. Knowing her was the best part of my life. Until the end of year, I know that she had an anemia. At the same time, she also had a hypothyroidism. I know it is so hard for her but she is strong. She can endure her diseases until the end. That is so amazing. I could not imagine if I was on her shoes, can I become strong like her? After knowing that she had those two diseases, my roommate and I really cared about her. Every day, she will show the symptoms of the diseases. One day, she was really surprised me when she asked, “Who is she?” while her finger pointed to one of our roommate. She was easily fatigue. When the rain starts to fall, I will seek for her because I know that she cannot stand in the cold condition. It is really hard for me to see her endure the pain. Due to her depression condition, her examination result was really bad. In consequence of that situation, her family decided to get her back home and quit from that school. So that, she can does her check up every week without any difficulty. Her disappearance really made me miserable. I must accept that because it is for her good. Until now, she is still strong like before even though sometime she complained about the doctor, who took her blood for test every time she came for check up. I always pray that she can get over from her diseases and live with a better life. The wonderful friend, Sara......

Not so Wonderful

...CASE 21 The Not-So-Wonderful World of BONJOUR, MICKEY! In April 1992, EuroDisney SCA opened its doors to European visitors. Located by the river Marne some 20 miles east of Paris, it was designed to be the biggest and most lavish theme park that Walt Disney Company (Disney) had built to date—bigger than Disneyland in Anaheim, California; Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida; and Tokyo Disneyland in Japan. Much to Disney management’s surprise, Europeans failed to “go goofy” over Mickey, unlike their Japanese counterparts. Between 1990 and early 1992, some 14 million people had visited Tokyo Disneyland, with three-quarters being repeat visitors. A family of four staying overnight at a nearby hotel would easily spend $600 on a visit to the park. In contrast, at EuroDisney, families were reluctant to spend the $280 a day needed to enjoy the attractions of the park, including les hamburgers and les milkshakes. Staying overnight was out of the question for many because hotel rooms were so high priced. For example, prices ranged from $110 to $380 a night at the Newport Bay Club, the largest of EuroDisney’s six new hotels and one of the biggest in Europe. In comparison, a room in a top hotel in Paris cost between $340 and $380 a night. Financial losses became so massive at EuroDisney that the president had to structure a rescue package to put EuroDisney back on firm financial ground. Many French bankers questioned the initial financing, but the Disney response was that their views......

Quotes

...Quotes! "The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return!" Moulin Rouge “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails…” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 13 “Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 
when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, 
when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess, we have lost our thirst for the waters of life; having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 
we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show Your mastery, where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask You to push back the horizon of our hopes; 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ. Amen" Sir Francis Drake "Worship is my response to what I value most. What I value most is God.  I was made by Him and for Him. He is Awesome beyond Comprehension! I exist for the purpose of reflecting back to God His...

Quote

...1. Quotations (how he engages his young audience + rhetorical devices and message) – do not write the paragraphs – just decide what point you want to make (with that quotation) He gets his audience involved by using the word sexy: ‘’ let me further point out how ubiquitously the word ‘sexy’ is used to describe late-model gadgets’’ he makes this whole thing easier for us to understand, by using words we use and say. Another quote that appeals to us as a young audience is: ‘’It’s all one big endless loop. We lie the mirror and the mirror likes us. To friend a person is merely to include the person in our private hall of flattering mirrors.’’ This is one of the issues the youth have, to look good and be liked. And by this quote he light up this. The message of this essay is that.. 2. Write a funnel introduction a. Write an alternative introduction, where you begin with a quotation from Franzen’s essay ‘’Alongside their built-in eagerness (of consumer technology products) to be liked is a built-in eagerness to reflect well on us. Our lives look a lot more interesting when they’re filtered through the sexy Facebook interface. We star in our own movies, we photograph ourselves incessantly, we click the mouse and a machine confirms our sense of sense of mastery.’’ Here he addresses his young self-centred audience. He shows us how the new technology has its effect on them. How it makes them more and more selfish and anti-social. Anti-social in a way, that they......

Motivational Quotes

...Motivational Quotes "If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way." -Napolean Hill Why I like it: Simple words, deep meaning. Sometimes I may feel some goals are too far to reach, then this quote inspires me. Not always can we do great things, but we can do small things that other people will appreciate. Never is a challenging goal easy to accomplish, but we can start from what we can and make the first step. “Small” never means nothing, because thousands of drops of water can make a sea. How it relates to The Truth of Motivation: This quote reminds me that if one goal seems too hard to reach, just do what we can firstly and carry on. Small things can still make difference. In fact, this quote is the inspiration for me to set up my goal-reaching & motivation system. When I can face a challenging task that seems hard to finish, I will divide it into several small goals, and do it step by step. After I reached one goal, I would just give myself a little reward. Thanks to this quote, I developed a method to motivate myself when facing challenging goal. "The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goals to reach." -Benjamin Mays Why I like it: The quote encourages me, even when I’ve failed for several times, I will never be too frustrated, because I know failure is not always a bad thing. The quote warns me, sometimes I may feel confused and don’t know what to do, then I tell myself I can......

Quote Analysis

...Quote Analysis “She shook each hand reluctantly; touching them was physically distasteful to her. But she made the effort to overcome this feeling so contrary to Christian charity and, in the spirit of mortification, forced herself to kiss the children who accompanied their mothers; they were all fat and pink, overfed and with dirty faces, like little pigs.” p. 245(59 words) The narrator of this quote is the Viscountess and it shows the hypocrisy of upper class that is seen throughout Suite Francaise. The Viscountess just convinced the wives of farmers who had extra food hidden in their houses while she herself refused to give or even sell any of their wealth of food with anyone. The Viscount, himself, was made the mayor of the town and had as such had a surplus of supplies. Just before the Viscountess talked to the ladies, “The viscountess said with sigh, remembering that she spent 850 francs on the shoes she was wearing (fortunately, the viscount was the local mayor and she had coupons for shoes whenever she pleased),”(p.g.241) revealing the ease of access to supplies. The viscount was actually attempting to rally the town together and create a community where everyone assisted everyone else except for his family which held on to everything they had. Another issues discussed in this quote is the attitude of the upper class of France to people of lower class. The Viscountess calls the children “fat and pink, overfed and with dirty faces, like little pigs.”......
