The stories discussed in her speeches were all very similar. She seemed to use the same stories but add a little different twist depending on the crowd she was addressing. I really don’t know if the “twist” was to keep the stories fresh in her mind or to appease a given congregation....   [tags: Mother Tesera Biography Charity]

However Wininger’s analogy that “maternal love cannot be truly represented as resting on moral grounds” is not plausible, for human mothers are very well able to reason and make decisions rather based on their own individual morals....   [tags: Wininger] 602 words

Beauty and the Beast - What pops into your mind when you hear the word ‘love?’ Do you think of a person who loved you or someone you’ve admired. We, as human beings, are made to love. We even distinguish love as family, romantic, and selfless love: also known as, storge, eros, and agape. As much as we desire to love others, we hold high values of being loved by others. Humanity’s great appreciation towards love is so great, it is even portrayed in fairy tales. Little Mermaid is a story about a mermaid who exchanges her beautiful voice to human legs so that she could be with her true love, Sleeping Beauty is a story about a prince who strives to fight against the evil witch in order to save his true love from a dee...   [tags: Philosophy, Love] 1627 words

The Ideal Family Is the One Where There Is Love - Most people define the ideal family as a group of people who are related by blood, share the same last name, and have unconditional love for one another. According to dictionary.com, family is “any group of persons closely related by blood, as parents, children, uncles, aunts, and cousins.” Normally, this idea of the ideal family is what comes to most people’s minds but some people are adopted into families. People have their own belief of what an ideal family is like. I believe that the ideal family is a group of people who don’t necessarily have to share the same blood but are happy together, respect, and care for one another....   [tags: personal reflections and opinion]

Love For Life - Raised with strict family values, I cringe to phrases like, "I can’t wait to get my children out of the house," or "As soon as my children reach 18, they are on their own." I become shocked to discover that age defines the release date in which children are no longer supported by parents. Children are the offspring to which parents give birth to in life. Regardless of the age, an individual will always be a child to one’s mother or father and should receive support until, and beyond, the age of being released into the world....   [tags: essays research papers] 1222 words

Is Love Good or Evil? - Is Love Good or Evil. Love is an emotion we all experience in our lives. The feeling is amazing for most people and not so wonderful for others. As I searched for the word love in the dictionary, the definition explained it to be a strong affection and warm attachment for another person. I believe the word love has a more intense and deeper meaning than any dictionary is able to represent. It does little to define what love is beyond the eyes of the person who actually experiences it.
