Blitz Spirit During World War II in Britain

- In 1940 the government needed to find a way to support both the British at home and the British at war. They did not need widespread panic in Britain to add to their problems and knew that if one city thought the other cities were doing well, then they would certainly believe they should follow suit. So they decided the best way was to hide the worst news from them. At least this way they would only know of the great accomplishments and fights fought by their men at arms, and would keep hope up of them coming home....   [tags: morale, blitz spirit, world war ii, ]

The Holly Spirit and His Holly World

- The natural world which mankind inhabits is visible to physical eyes. Tangible objects fill the scenes of this earthly realm. The world and its components are familiar and open to humanity and as a result most are comfortable with their natural environment and with what they can physically see. Yet, man is a two-fold being in that he is a spiritual being as well as an earthly one. Man possesses a soul, and that soul will live eternally. Of course, the soul of man pertains to the spiritual side of mankind where the spirit world play an integral role in the decisions he makes, the influences he is subjected to, and where the soul of man will ultimately spend eternity....   [tags: Biblical Definition, Instances]

The Canadian Spirit: Canada’s Contribution to the World

- The recent Olympic Winter Games has brought out the true spirit of Canada in us all. Never has the nation seen such displays of en-masse patriotism as we rallied together in support of our athletes. This is the true spirit of Canada, often tucked behind a blank facade, invisible to the world.

- The Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity The word cult, as defined by Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary denotes “a usually small circle of persons united by devotion or allegiance to an artistic or intellectual movement or figure.” According to this interpretation, all religious groups can be classified as having this characteristic. However, due largely in part to stereotypes portrayed in the media, much of society perceives the word cult as definable by “a close-knit, unorthodox religious movement in which members, or potential members are enticed by means of deception and indoctrination.” It is in accordance with this explanation that one can separatel...   [tags: Papers]

The Spirit of Life

- “Blue Fairy make me a real boy” pleads David (Haley Joel Osment), the robot child that found a purpose, and with it the essence of life. Steven Spielberg’s motion picture Artificial Intelligence (2001) examines the spirituality behind life, and challenges what it means to be alive and “real”. Many people would argue that life is the defining trait that separates organic from inorganic matter (Judy, n.d.).

A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal, by William Wordsworth

- In the latter part of the romantic period, Wordsworth, as a part of his lyrical ballads, wrote “A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal.” Although not initially intended, the poem eventually became part of a series labeled as the “Lucy Poems.” The five poems, in some way or another, address loss, separation, and their connection to nature. Recent analyses have yielded interesting results in interpreting the poem. Because of the ambiguity present within the lines, varying interpretations have emerged. As it turns out, “A slumber did my spirit seal” is not just a poem, as most people would have it, of a male speaker lamenting the loss of his love Lucy....   [tags: Loss, Separation, Nature]

Reason and Spirit in Rabindranath Tagore's The Post Office

- Reason is an integral part of human intelligence while a lively spirit is a core ingredient of human soul. Some people are dominated by reason while others let both reason and spirit direct them in the course of life.
