Analysis of Sonnet 11 As fast as thou shalt wane so fast thou grow'st In one of thine from that which thou departest, And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow'st Thou mayst call thine when thou from youth convertest: Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase; Without this, folly, age, and cold decay: If all were minded so, the times should cease, And threescore year would make the world away. Let those whom nature hath not made for store- Harsh, featureless, and rude-barrenly perish: Look, whom she best endow'd she gave the more; Which bounteous gift thou shouldst in bounty cherish: She carv'd thee for her seal, and meant thereby Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die. 1-2: 'As fast as time takes hold of you, you do grow (in attributes) as you leave one of yourself [an heir] behind'; or, more generally, 'if you're persuing two things, drop one and you'll increase in that aspect that much more'. 3-4: 'And the children to whom you (would) have given life, you can call your own (self) when you stray from youth'. 5-6: 'Within children (procreation) resides wisdom, beauty and increase (of a good life), however, without children, you are prone to folly, aging and the rest of your life without warming love (of children)'. 7-8: 'If everyone acted as you do in not bearing children, generations would be no more, and the [or your] world would die within (your) sixty years'. 9-10: 'Let those people who Nature decides shall not have heirs perish, because they are "harsh, featureless, and rude"'. 13-14: 'She has you as a stamp (for sealing wax, not the wax itself), and meant for you to reproduce more of yourself through children, and not to let yourself die without not doing so (because life is everlasting through children)'.

The validity of President Andrew Jackson’s response to the Bank War issue has been contradicted by many, but his reasoning was supported by fact and inevitably beneficial to the country. Jackson’s primary involvement with the Second Bank of the United States arose during the suggested governmental re-chartering of the institution. It was during this period that the necessity and value of the Bank’s services were questioned.
P. 15 "God has his mysteries which none can fathom. You, perhaps, will be a king. You can do nothing about it. You, on the other hand, will be unlucky, but you can do nothing about that either. Each man finds his way already marked out for him and he can change nothing of it."
The main point that President Jackson made in his address for the veto was that too much of the money in the U.S. Bank was from foreign countries. When private stockholders from other countries don’t pay their debts, it hurts the U.S. economy, but even worse then that is the foreign business that the bank does creates an incredible amount of foreign dividend that the U.S. citizens have to pay for, in their taxes. The President says that the banking system should be entirely American; all of the stockholders in the United States Banking system should consist of U.
In this paper, Paul raises the interesting idea that having a child is epistemically transformative, and in certain cases, can be personally transformative. As a result, our lack of knowledge about what it is like to have a child prevents us from making the rational decision to have a child. In this paper, I will be focusing on the epistemically transformative qualities of having a child as opposed to the personally transformative qualities of having a child for two reasons. Firstly, while having a child is universally epistemically transformative (as Paul claims) it is not universally personally transformative. Secondly, the idea that having a child is personally transformative is based on testimony, something that Paul warns us is an unreliable source of information.
In his decision to wage war on the Second Bank of the United States in 1833, Andrew Jackson became unsuccessful in balancing national and sectional interests. The Second Bank of the United States was created in 1816 in response to the First Bank of the United States, which was widely successful in keeping the unity of the states and liquidating the national debt. Getting rid of the national bank would hurt the unity of the nation, stability of the debt within each state and the economy as well. Jackson’s war on the bank also caused sectionalism in the states with the creation of a new political party, the Whig Party, who were opposed to Jackson’s policies. The idea of having no national bank interested Jackson because he believed the bank to be unconstitutional and thought the bank policies favored the wealthy over average people, so this caused more sectionalism between people who supported this idea and people who did not support this idea.
“It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.”
Firstly, for selfish reasons, the article states that although raising a child may be expensive and difficult, it will be the most rewarding thing for the couple. It gives the example of holding a newborn baby in your arms and having love for them. This does not include mothers that do not feel anything for their children right after they are born. The article does not consider the mothers that may have trouble bonding with their child immediately or at all. Another reason for having children is the desire your family to continue. This reason might not be a priority for everyone. Having a successor may not be important for every
Early in the lines 254 – 267 it is written that the man with only one son weeps bitterly in the afterlife. However, Gilgamesh’s questions “Did you see him who had two sons?", Enkidu informs Gilgamesh that the man with two sons fair a better afterlife (lines 254 – 267). This fact adds additional information on the importance of a son in the Babylonian society. A merely one additional son can change the atmosphere of ones’ afterlife. In addition, Gilgamesh asks about those with more sons, “His heart rejoices like a man who has four asses to yoke” (Middle of lines 254 – 267) the line indicates that the man with four sons is able to be happy even though he is in the afterlife. On top of that, the man with six sons was seen worthy enough to become a companion of the Gods (near the end of lines 254 – 267). The man with six sons was held in such of a high position that he was able to be in the presence of gods. He is told to be sitting on a throne rather than suffering, listening to judgments rather than receiving them. The importance of a son is shown by how they carry their father’s legacy and how the number of son affects the father’s afterlife. The texts in Gilgamesh XII shows the importance of procreation to Babylonian society, by how the number of sons can affect the father’s
“Grant me the strength, time and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is immense and the spirit of man can extend indefinitely to enrich itself daily with new requirements.” - Oath of Maimonides
A child’s death is used as an example of tragedy throughout ancient texts such as those written by Herodotus and Thucydides. Parents took great measure to insure their children’s survival. This is seen in the use of amulets, dog dung, skin and teeth of wolves and many others to ward off diseases and other misfortunes. In his article Golden references Lawrence Stone’s argument that “affection and love were not to be expected in pre-industrial populations because high mortality made emotional commitment, especially to children, too dangerous for individuals and
...ligion tunes into the sense of togetherness which the baby is believed to understand with the mother. The early loss of ego limitations is replicated in a sense of the supreme in adult life. This theory suggests a state of idyllic union with an all-loving and all-forgiving parent; which in religion can be seen as ‘God.’
This proverb can be translated in a number of ways. Literally speaking, (If I had no knowledge of the teachings of Ecclesiastes,) I will translate this using the deconstructionist method of analyzing. "Rejoice in your youth, you who are young; let your heart give you joy in your young days." Literally, this would mean that young people should enjoy life and do every pleasant thing they can do while they are still young. "Follow the promptings of your heart and the desires of your eyes." This means that whatever you feel, no matter right or wrong, to act upon it. "But this you know: for all these things God will bring you to judgment." This line means that all your actions will be seen and judged by God.
HIV and AIDS are viruses that are very common in today’s society and an issue that has been very popular since the 1980’s. Millions of lives could be saved if the proper steps are taken to educate the less fortunate so they can learn about how to prevent these viruses from being transmitted to one another. It is also important to educate the youth of our society so they know the risks and consequences that could occur if they are not safe while preforming acts that are not part of the norm. When the proper steps are taken to educate, and treat those with HIV and AIDS it can prevent millions of people from dying from these horrible diseases.
