Lent Sermon

- Brilliant white light-flicker shimmers; steel-gray on the wind above soft-rolled, angry cotton, dirty and coldly clouding the wind-blown, wool-white blanket below, softly dusted spindly pine and desert scrub bric-a-brac over bedrock color of claret – no sound, all muffled soft, enwrapped in winter like an icy blanket. Call it imagery: visual, tactile, aural; call it figurative language in metaphor or simile; call it description – call it what you will, but recognize what it is…just a moment in time, a snapshot, going nowhere, doing nothing – a picture....   [tags: Christianity]

Cause and Effect in David Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding

- Cause and Effect in David Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding In An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, David Hume states, “there is not, in any single, particular instance of cause and effect, any thing which can suggest the idea of power or necessary connexion” (Hume, 1993: 41). Hume establishes in section II that all ideas originate from impressions that employ the senses (11). Therefore, in order for there to be an idea of power or “necessary connexion,” there must be impressions of this connection present in single instances of cause and effect; if there are no such impressions, then there cannot be an idea of “necessary connexion” (52)....   [tags: Philosophy Religion Essays]

Such things are apparent in a liberal world order such as individual liberties, private property and free trade.

- Narrator's Role in Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Kerouac's On The Road Over the last fifty years, since the release of On The Road in 1957, it has not been uncommon for critics to draw parallels between Kerouac’s semi-autobiographical novel and Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, released thirty-two years previously. It is for certain that both the novels share many similar traits, both examine concepts of American ideals and The American Dream, both are heavily influenced by the jazz age of the time, but nothing binds the novels closer to one another than the authors’ use of the first person narrative and that narrators relationship with their leading character....   [tags: Gatsby Road Kerouac Fitzgerald Essays]
