    too: Frederic Henry is, of course, in war and witness to death many times, wounded himself, and loses Catherine; Meursault's story begins with his mother's death, he later kills an Arab, and then is himself tried and sentenced to death. In fact, the defining death-confrontations (Frederic's loss of Catherine, Meursault's death sentence) transform the characters into narrators; that is to say, the stories are told because of the confrontations with death.

    Michael Korda's "Defining Success" From reading " Defining Success " by Michael Korda, I agree and also disagree with Michael on his way of defining success. The first indicator of success comes when one is making more than one is spending. There are few things that he has left out on how to becoming a success. The things are if you are from a rich family, how well you are educated and who you know. Of course, if you aim at a dream that is so far beyond your reach then you would bound to fail

    Defining Death You have been told that someone is lying on a bed, their mind, for all intents and purposes is no longer functioning. Their internal organs, however, are.

Death is perceived either as a cessation of Life - or as a "transit zone", on the way to a continuation of Life by other means.

    So I don't really have a big defining moment of my life where everything changed and I gave up the drugs and drinking and turned toward God. I do have a moment where I turned to him but it isn't big and grand. Sometimes I wish this was different, sometimes I wish I had some big grand story. But then again, I have been immersed in God's life for all of mine and I can't complain about that. I was born on a Thursday in January and as soon as I was able, about a week and a half later, I was in church

Plato was one of the first to conjecture that beauty may be due to what he called the "golden proportions." Plato went on
