Characters in Romeo and Juliet by Williams Shakespeare

- ... Her eye discourses. I will answer it.(II.II.11-14) This quote impacts the story because it shows how fast Romeo decided that Juliet was the one for him. Later in the story, the love between Romeo and Juliet kills them, and their families suffer because of it as well. The audience should understand that moving fast into love makes people suffer, and taking it slow may be better. Also, love at first sight should be approached with caution because it could just be lust. Because of this, Romeo and Juliet didn’t realize the drawbacks that came with their love....   [tags: falling in love, suffering, symbols]

Good Vs. Evil And Stories

- If children were always read stories of good verses good and where nothing bad happens, wouldn’t that present to children a false sense of reality. In reading stories about good versus evil and stories where bad comes to those who are otherwise good, we build a sense of reality for children. We create a real world environment and show children that we do not live in a perfect world. In classic fairytales, consequences do not only fall upon those who are evil, but consequences and evil also falls upon those who are good....   [tags: Snow White, Brothers Grimm, Fairy tale]

The American Education System Is Falling Behind Those Of Other Nations

- In a time where American students’ rankings are falling behind those of other nations, it is easy to suggest that we completely adopt their education systems and abandon our own. However, this view fails to appreciate what the American education system has to offer, especially in the language department. America provides students the opportunity to be a successful creative writer, the understanding to be an appreciative reader, and the mindset to be a critical thinker that other nations do not. For these reasons I agree with the statement that an American education prepares students just as well, if not better, than other nations to be successful and creative writers, appreciative readers, a...   [tags: Critical thinking, Thought, Education, Reasoning]
