The article, “Walden” by Linda Corrente states that Thoreau “urges us to meet our lives, regardless of what they hold for us.” People in poverty already do that. They are aware of the hardships and have faced different ways to beat it. “Walden... ... middle of paper ... ...’s Ripple Effect” explains “A person is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.” That is what defines being rich? Money may buy a lot of things, but it can’t make your life better by the soul. We need to broaden our view of the world we live in and delve into its beauty.
For example, if he is rich then we want a poor person like ourselves. Emerson explains this process as natural. And it is only natural to replace old friends with new ones. Since we meet new and interesting people some of our other friendships become short-lived. We rush to make friends and in doing so, never has a good foundation for a good friendship.
Obviously, it does not mean that all time is money, because time sleeping does not usually equal a check. However, time in this context can also extend to mean effort, or work. Another definition, thus, could be that hard work corresponds to money. Money also has many meanings in this tenet; success, betterment, or happiness all express its feel. It is obvious why our society smiles on this axiom; most, if not all people, would agree that hard-working is a good character trait, while slacking is not.
Judgment around the world exists but if it is too hasty, it can turn into ignorance. Other than that, I know deep in my heart that we had done the right thing. Often misunderstood by the world, the rich are not all bad people, they do not all live well from the sucking of other people's riches to make then poor and hurt them and they do not all have cold hearts. To have enough money to live and to have a family that works for the betterment of the poor's life is a privilege, not a sin to turn into being called a "rich kid". Names will always be given to those who are misunderstood and change all starts from within so all there is left to do is make sure that social, circumstantial or even political motives does not keep anyone from doing what's right.
But as Millburn and Nicodemus also stated, “A life of poverty—a life of perpetual deprivation—isn’t joyous either.” When certain victims of poverty have the urge to go for having a fortune, they start to lose their sight of living the right of way. The right of way involves the most significant priorities of living on planet Earth: Family, friends, relations, companionships, the population, and our input into supporting the community. Even if some of these individuals get a sense of satisfaction of pursue a more affluent life, most would ultimately
If they only have a small dream then it could lead to laziness and they wouldn't want to stress out because of a small outcome on success. Another thing is that if that person is from a rich family then their dreams is most likely beyond their reach. This is because they have capitol and capitol can almost buy dreams. Why have a small dream. Education also plays an important role in success.
Mostly, people end up gambling themselves to bankruptcy. If relying solely on luck and ignoring perseverance, then gaining the American Dream will often become impossible. The American dream is having opportunity and successfully accomplishing goals. It is the freedom that everyone in America has to follow their hopes and dreams and to lead a full life. Even if coming to America as an impoverished immigrant, you still have the opportunity to climb the ladder of success and get a better financial and living status.
Their parents; the first generation of rich, do not want their children taste these hard struggle time, and want these kids can start their own struggle life on a higher level than commons. Thus, some of the rich parents try their best to provide any supports for their kids as possible. For example, some rich kids can have excess pin money, the best condition of life and study environment, and timely material satisfaction when they want, and so on. These “love” activities lead these rich young to form a lot of bad habits, such as short of struggle spirit, selfishness, weak nerves inside, only enjoy the luxury life, low tolerance when they have argument with others, and so on. For instance, the negative news can be usually related with the second rich generation, such as excessive drinking, racing car illegally, and fighting with people, and so on.
I’ve thought long and hard about this question – actually, the financial crisis in our country, not just the foreclosure crisis – and while I’d like to think I have some incredible revelation about how to solve the problem, I keep coming back to the basics: people just need to be taught good money management, early on, so it becomes part of who they are. I have dear friends who have moved from one foreclosure to another – several over the past couple years – and quite frankly, they shouldn’t keep getting loans with that history! They need someone to step in and say, “You can’t afford this, try a cheaper alternative.” My family has recently become involved with a local homeless shelter that focuses on homeless families with children. This shelter, which has been operational in my home town since 1992, has helped more than 750 families and over 2,000 children break the cycle of poverty and homelessness – and fully 95% of the families who go through the doors of this shelter NEVER return to homelessness. What’s their answer?
Worse of all, the details that back up the argument are all true. But we also have our standards. We are not overly materialistic, there are limits after all we just came out of a recession. People in American society take money very seriously because it can either make or destroy your life and what choices you make. America is a very materialistic society and it has to with how successful we are and that success with the country want of money, the country’s need of things give us our title as materialistic country.
