  • The Band Creed

    2244 Words  | 5 Pages

    What If The band that comes to my mind when someone mentions abstract lyrics is the modern, popular, yet sophisticated group, Creed. I thoroughly enjoy their music, although not strictly for entertainment purposes. They have extremely creative ways of stating feelings, telling stories, and sharing ideas through the lyrics they produce. Their song, entitled "What If," is an excellent version of poetic writing that exemplifies mixed emotion and portrays an undefined depth in meaning. It is quite

  • Alter Bridge Concert Report

    Monday, April 21, 2014, along with my friend JJJJ and my Mom, we went to see Alter Bridge perform in concert at Rams Head Live down in the Marketplace in Baltimore, Maryland. The doors opened at 7 o’clock and the concert started at 8 p.m. with the band Monster Truck as the opening act. We went and ate dinner before going to the concert, but when we entered the venue, Rams Head was packed. The show was sold out and there were people ranging from ages fifteen to mid-fifties. There were both men

  • Homelessness in America

    611 Words  | 2 Pages

    Homelessness is not something that was created over night; it has existed for a long time; often we choose not to see the homeless, or bother with them, so we look the other way.    Homelessness is not prejudice toward race, creed, or religion--it has no boundaries; all homeless people should not be stereotyped as being drug abusers or the mentally ill that have been released from mental hospitals. Homelessness is not a disease that a person can catch from bodily contact, but it certainly has afflicted

    The Honorable Life and Death of James Joyce The coat of arms which James Joyce inherited from his family bears the motto, "Mors aut honorabilis vita," meaning, "An honorable life or death." But was Joyce loyal to the creed of his more noble ancestors? Many would argue that he was not. After a Catholic education all the way through his undergraduate degree he denounced Catholicism. In the middle of a time of growing nationalism in which the role of bard was elevated to national

  • The Arrogant Emerson and Self-Reliance

    1211 Words  | 3 Pages

    "Self-Reliance," Emerson applies his ideas to religion, stating that men should find their own creed, not conform to another one that has been made for them. "We must go alone," he says, not seeking the help or influence of others, but formulating our own ideas (Self-Reliance and Other Essays, 30). At this point I disagree with Emerson. I believe that it is arrogant and self-righteous to try and form your own creed and own ideas while ignoring the influence of others. Although self-reliance may have a place

    ability, confidence, and ideas, was now occupying my chances towards a preferred school.  "Affirmative action", I soon found out, was used by President John F. Kennedy over 30 years ago to imply equality and equal access to all, disregarding race, creed, color, or national origin. As a policy setting out to resolve the problems of discrimination, Affirmative Action is simply nothing more than a quota of reverse discrimination. Affirmative Action emphasizes prospective opportunity more towards

  • The Complex Alceste of Moliere's Misanthrope

    1415 Words  | 3 Pages

    Molière made The Misanthrope a comedy, not a tragedy. Alceste, despite his bold railings against the hypocrisy of society, often finds it impossible to set a heroic example in front of his all-too-"civilized" circle. He is no lone upholder of a noble creed forced to martyrdom for his beliefs; in fact, his announcement, at the end of the play, of the martyrdom he is imposing upon himself--exile to "some solitary place on earth/Where one is free to be a man of worth"{6}--makes him look less heroic than

  • Lipsets American Creed

    978 Words  | 2 Pages

    Lipset's American Creed Liberty. Egalitarianism. Individualism. Populism. Laissez-faire. These five concepts embody the "American creed" as described by author Seymour Martin Lipset. Lipset feels that this "American creed" is representative of an ideology that all Americans share. Lipset's argument is on shaky ground, however, when scrutinized under the microscope of race. Racial relations in this country do much to undermine the validity of Lipset's argument, especially the concepts of egalitarianism

However sceptical readers have become about the Wordsworthian-Coleridgean creed, the monumental quality of the volume is not entirely a figment of a literary history in search of Great Traditions; 'Tintern Abbey' writes its own future—and the future of Lyrical Ballads 1798 as a whole—as well as writing Wordsworth's (and Dorothy's)

    importantly, that humans are capable of suffering, and that to inflict such pain is unethical. Those who observe the tortures of the Nazi Concentration Camp are instilled with a humane creed held for all humans. But if there is no significant gulf between humans, that is to say there is no gulf based on skin color, creed, or gender that will make one human more or less valuable than any other, then by what right can a gulf be drawn out between humans and our fellow creatures? The suffering of humans
