There is not one sign of human disturbance anywhere.
The mountain creek only flows when the sun is warm enough to melt some of the snow. The mountain creek cuts through the snow like boiling hot water through a block of ice. The creek looks like a miniature Grand Canyon, except instead of a river cutting through rock it is a creek cutting through the powdery snow. At some places the creek disappears under the white, fluffy snow only to reappear the same as before. The creek flows down the mountainside making a bubbling noise as it flows through the jagged and rounded rocks. The creek is very shallow like a bathtub filled for a tiny baby.

Families from European Countries sailed on boats from months to read the great promise America held. They left their home countries and everything they had to lead successful and prosperous lives in the US. Another form of the American Dream arose in the 1950s after the US successfully win World War II.

- Puck and Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream When James Joyce was a teenager, a friend asked him if he had ever been in love. He answered, "How would I write the most perfect love songs of our time if I were in love - A poet must always write about a past or a future emotion, never about a present one - A poet's job is to write tragedies, not to be an actor in one" (Ellman 62). I mention this because - after replacing the word "comedy" for "tragedy" and allowing a little latitude on the meaning of the word "actor" - Joyce is subconsciously giving A Midsummer Night's Dream's argument about the role of the artist....

- It seems that so often the subject of economic standing and wealth, are said synonymously with the phrase "The American Dream". It seems that it takes money to be happy and economic stature to be accepted; however, many people who fall into this trap out of ignorance will never achieve "The American Dream" they strive towards. The cliché, "In America, you can be whatever you want," always brings a smirk to my face. I am not a cynical person, but this just isn't true.

- When the flag was first made, it symbolized freedom and opportunity for both citizens of American and the immigrants. There was the dream that America was a place of freedom, where you could do what you want, say what you want, and get a job or own your own land. For some, that dream became a reality, but for many of those immigrants, it has proven to be just that, a dream.

Does it truly symbolize freedom and opportunity, or is it simply a token for those who want to flaunt their opinions and financial status..... [tags: Essays on the American Dream]
