What is love? Love is a very special and meaningful word to each human being. Each human being has his/her own thoughts about love to guide himself/herself to land safely and smoothly into the kingdom of Love. Without this preconceived idea of love, people would be acting like a blind person searching for the light with thousand of obstacles in front of him.

What is Love? I know this question exists in each human being's mind including myself. If not it is still waiting to be discovered deeply in your heart. What do I think of love? For me, I believe love is a priceless diamond, because a diamond has thousands of reflections, and each reflection represents a meaning of love. With love I can accept a person's imperfections without any condition, and able to transfer the way I love myself to another person who I am fancy at. With love I can have the power against loneliness, sadness, and illness, and to be able to change them into my happiness. As well as, having a key to open my heart to look at this world without a mask, to show people who I really am. But on the other hand, my love cannot be a substitute for anything, which means nothing can be substituted for my love. It also means those reflections of the diamond cannot be replaced by any kind of light or reflection, because the untrue reflection will not be a real diamond, and will not be able to spread out its resplendent and meaningful reflection of love to people about whom I care.

What will happen if people live without love? In my point of view, without love I may lose my ability to survive in this world with no hope. Without love I can be defined as a rat living in the sewer, with no chance to see our beautiful land and with no chance to lighten up myself against the darkness. As well as, I may lose many opportunities of enjoyment both mentally and physically, when I do not know…...

Why We Hurt the Ones We Love the Most

...Shayla Fletcher Mrs. Brewer English 9, Period 2 23 January 2012 Why We Hurt the Ones We Love Most Many people have realized we hurt the ones we love the most, and in the story “The Scarlet Ibis”, by James Hurst, it really make you realize why we do such a thing. There are two brothers in the story trying to make it together, and the older brother pushes it to the edge. The older brother, the narrator, is loving, full of pride, cruel, and hopeful all at the same time, towards his little brother Doodle. With all these emotions going on at the same time, the results turn out to be something you would never imagine. In the story Doodle, William Armstrong, was born as a very special young man. He was so special; nobody thought he was going to live when being born. He didn’t get a name till’ he was three months old and had a casket built for him as a sign. With all this being wrong with him, his older brother gave him the nickname Doodle because he felt it wasn’t a name he had to live up to, or be expected of big things, rather than William Armstrong. Though it seems mean everyone agreed, but that’s okay because he was still a loving older brother towards Doodle. He took Doodle everywhere with him as he grew up. He even took him to his favorite place, The Old Woman Swamp. They would go all the time and have lots of fun like normal brothers would. They made crowns, necklaces, and more together out of honeysuckle. So, with Doodle being a little different then normal......

What We Talk About When We Talk About Love

...In Raymond Carver’s “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” there was one theme that was consistent throughout the whole story. It is that not one of the four characters of the story could explain what love is. Each character in the story each had their own ideas to what they wanted love to be but not what it actually was. Whether it was suicidal love, abusive love, or just physical love, each person in the story held fast to what they believed love to be, even if they could not explain why. One of the main characters, Mel, attempts time and again to identify the meaning of love, but he never forms any clear conclusion. Each time he is about to say something important he gets sidetrack or forgets for a little while what he was about to say. For example, he tells a story about an old couple who almost die in a car crash, but half way through he gets distracted. When he finally gets to the conclusion of the story—the old man miserable because he could not see his wife—confuses the others. When he tells everyone that he will explain what exactly love is, he instead strays into a jumbled reflection about how it is bizarre that he and the others have been in love repeatedly. His efforts to illuminate the nature of love tapers off into a bitter lecture against his ex-wife. He spends a lot of his time saying what love is not and not saying what it actual is.In the story Mel says “There was a time when I thought I loved my first wife more than life itself. But now I hate her......

Essay About Love

...Love is the greatest gift we can ever hope to give or receive. Love is the one thing that can overcome so many of the difficult times that we are faced with in life. Love is so powerful - it can turn frowns into smiles. It can help mend the most broken heart. It can even turn all of the ugliness in the world into the most beautiful portrait we could ever have the pleasure to behold. Such a monumental task - of course... it could be. But only if we try to do it alone. Instead, if each of us, in our own small way contributed just a little - together, the task can become the reality we're reaching for. As potent as what love can be, it can only work it's magic if we choose to allow it to. For that to come to pass we must let go of the other emotions that can get in love's way. How is that - you may wonder? Consider the thought that... Anger - It's normal, but holding on to it indefinitely isn't really necessary. Let it go... Forgiveness is so much better for the soul than holding on to a grudge. Not only will the person you're angry at be happier but so will you. Harshness - Harsh words take just as much effort and energy as kind ones do. Why not consider your choice of words before you speak them and choose gentler ones to get your point across. Impatience - Aren't we all guilty of this at one time or another? Keep reminding yourself of the old saying - "Patience is a virtue" - who wouldn't want to be a little more virtuous?

Why Do We Care About Human-Computer Interaction?

...Trident University International ITM 433 Module 1 Case   ITM 433 – Computer-Human Interaction Module 1: Why do we care about human-computer interaction? Case Assignment: Discuss the application of speech recognition as a tool for Human Computer Interaction Definitions Before getting too far into detail, here are some definitions this paper is based on. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is summarily, and loosly, defined as the interaction between people (users) and computers and can be referred to in several different manners. For instance; Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) or Human-Machine Interaction (HMI) are both virtually interchangeable with HCI. The phrase “speech recognition” is rarely, if ever, used outside the context of computer science. Speech recognition refers to the ability of computer-based software to convert spoken words into written (typed/digital) text. Together – HCI/CHI/HMI, etc., insert your acronym of choice but HCI will be used throughout this paper – HCI and speech recognition represent the present and rising future of end-user functionality. The next big thing will be the ability of computers or machines to read your mind instead of verbally instructing it to carry out your bidding… that is sarcasm, of course. However, this current reality of speech recognition software was not stumbled upon and did not happen by chance.   A Short History The lever is widely regarded as the first “machine” “invented” and implemented......

Why We Chose to Wed in Dubai - 2face Speaks

...as that is conducted for thr purpose of making descriptive assertions about some populations. Cressey [27] saw it as a situation without attempting to manipulate variables while Gay [28] regarded it as a collection of data from members of a population in order to determine the status of population with regard to one or more variables. Considering the above, the study population comprised all the 141 secondary schools that presented candidates for the 2003 Senior Secondary Certificate examinations in Ekiti State of Nigeria. Out of this population, a sample of 120 schools (85% of the population) was drawn through the process of stratified random sampling taking into consideration the school-sex and school location. The instrument used for collecting data for the study was an inventory. Good [29] described an inventory as a checklist or an open instrument compiled to serve educational needs. The inventory comprised items on enrolment figures, number of classes in each school, number of teachers and students’ grades in five major subjects in schools’ curriculum namely English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology in the 2003 SSC examinations. The data collected were analysed with the use of the chi square test, correlation analysis and t-test. Semi-structured interview was conducted with 30 principals of schools and 30 education officers in 9 the State to elicit information on their views about the class-sizes in schools. These principals and education officers......

The Truth About Love

...the truth about love, but I kept on asking myself, what is the truth about love? Is it the way two people fall in like and then the feelings develop to love? Or is it the way they illustrate each other the affection? I don’t know because I feel like I haven’t experienced true love. Yes, I’ve had my fair share of relationships, but I think those are the kind where in we just felt like we needed someone to be with. Like we needed someone to share something with. Now I know what you’re thinking. How old are you anyway to feel and think this way? Tell you what, I’m too young to know the truth about love, but at the same time, too old to be innocent and naïve. Now this isn’t about love in general. This is about the truth. Why the truth if I can make up my own? Because to me, it is important. It may not to you, but it is to me. I don’t know what got me thinking this way. Maybe because we lie too much. We even lie to ourselves to think that what we felt, what we’re feeling, or what we’re going to feel is true love. The idyllic idea when we say love is relationships. Boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, and wives. Those kinds of relationships. What if feeling true love is by making someone happy like your mom or your dad or your brother or your sister? So many options to choose from, but we always think about the romantic relationships. Why do we think like that? I don’t even know why I think like that. Like it’s the end of the world when you’re alone because no one cares about......

Why Don't We Complain?

...Jordan Swaim 9/21/2014 S/R Why Don’t’ We Complain? In the essay, “Why Don’t We Complain”, written by William F. Buckley Jr., the author explains some situations that he was involved in where no one would complain to fix an uncomfortable situation. He argues that Americans would rather face the inconvenience such as sitting in miserable heat on a train or not having your lunch tray collected on a plane. Buckley writes this essay as a result of constantly finding him accepting the inconvenience of life that could easily be fixed if he were to just speak up. The first theory Buckley stated is that everyone expects someone else to complain instead of them. You can’t go around expecting someone to always do the job for you. You need to speak for yourself. If no one is ever willing to say something, then how is the problem ever going to be solved? I felt that this problem was one if the author’s powerful points in this essay. One example he used, was one day when he was on a train and the temperature was very uncomfortable. It was 85 degrees on the train but below freezing outside. He knew that everyone was suffering from the heat, including himself, but no one ever said anything about the temperature being changed. He then said, “It isn’t just they who have given up trying to rectify irrational vexations” (pg. 77). People always expect someone else to stand up and complain about the situation. The second theory that Buckley explained was that people are afraid to state......

Love in We

...can see these echoes of similarity between We and the many other great works of dystopian science-fiction such as Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451 and, for this discussion, Orwell‘s novel 1984. Both stories depict a post-apocalyptic world that has come into existence after a nuclear war has realigned the all of the previous geographic, political and social boundaries of the “old world”. Both stories are told by a government bureaucrat of sorts, living in a peculiar, yet glorious, futuristic society. Both describe an insipid world where the desire for consistency, social order, and reverence had crushed almost any reminisce of true humanity, individual freedom, or emotion. Consequently, the fellow citizens of these societies have become warped, brainwashed caricatures of human beings and their interactions resemble that of a mindless zombie. The protagonist in each story eventually finds himself rebelling against the system, a system which he once held so profoundly. In both, the pawn is encouraged to rebel by a woman who symbolically or literally represents the political and sexual freedom of the pre-revolutionary era. Also, in both stories, the system eventually, or possibly at the very onset, discovers both the protagonist and their women and punishes them severely. After a period of “re-education” via mental and physical torture, the protagonist realizes how foolish his breakthrough has been and rediscovers their love for the almighty, and all-knowing......

Why We Broke Up

... Begin Reading Table of Contents Copyright Page For Charlotte—why we got together —D.H. + M.K. In a sec you’ll hear a thunk. At your front door, the one nobody uses. It’ll rattle the hinges a bit when it lands, because it’s so weighty and important, a little jangle along with the thunk, and Joan will look up from whatever she’s cooking. She will look down in her saucepan, worried that if she goes to see what it is it’ll boil over. I can see her frown in the reflection of the bubbly sauce or whatnot. But she’ll go, she’ll go and see. You won’t, Ed. You wouldn’t. You’re upstairs probably, sweaty and alone. You should be taking a shower, but you’re heartbroken on the bed, I hope, so it’s your sister, Joan, who will open the door even though the thunk’s for you. You won’t even know or hear what’s being dumped at your door. You won’t even know why it even happened. It’s a beautiful day, sunny and whatnot. The sort of day when you think everything will be all right, etc. Not the right day for this, not for us, who went out when it rains, from October 5 until November 12. But it’s December now, and the sky is bright, and it’s clear to me. I’m telling you why we broke up, Ed. I’m writing it in this letter, the whole truth of why it happened. And the truth is that I goddamn loved you so much. The thunk is the box, Ed. This is what I am leaving you. I found it down in the basement, just grabbed the box when all of our things were too much for my bed stand drawer. Plus I......

Why Should We Care About Child Labor?

...Why should we care about child labor? The education, labor market, and health consequences of child labor Contribution/Findings: The article's main purpose was to figure out the correlation between children of the ages 8 to 13 who worked and how it affected education, health and wage earnings. Also they tried to find a correlation between the price of rice to the amount of child labor. They did two studies one for the years 1992 to 1993 and then for the years 1997 and 1998. The article also mentions findings from several other studies. I found the article enlightening and intriguing especially how they categorize child labor. We look at it so negatively in the state this article really opened my eyes to a different look on what child labor is in smaller undeveloped countries. They included children's chores or those kids who worked on family farms or other family owned businesses not just what we see in sweatshops and things of that nature. The findings and results are clearly listed and presented well in this article. Which they do do several charts with their breakdowns. However, while the information was clearly there it was a tad bit difficult to understand. It seems like several numbers were just thrown around and it wasn't broken down into layman's terms. As well as they have pretty complicated formulas that weren't very well explained as to what each variable stood for. Which made it a little bit harder for me to understand and get a good grasp of the......

We Can Love Too

...We Can Be Lovers Too In this day and age it seems that there is no romance left in our society. Sex is easily accessible with things like Internet porn and social media chatting, that we (as men) no longer have to try to attract a girl to us. The effort of romanticism is gone. The new generations of young men do not know what it means to show affection, romance or love. There still is some hope for romance and chivalry. Despite all of the social media distractions the young men in our society have to find a way to bring back the gentlemanship of generations past. Most of the time before two and a half years ago, 19 years old, I was one of those guys who I am talking about in this piece. I would go out to wild parties and hook up with girls whom I did not know the names of. My best friends and I would hang out, sit around talking about girls. We gossiped about the girls we had been with. Who ever got with the most girls was always the “coolest”. It was weird; back then, my definition of cool. My use of social media was strictly for finding new girls that I thought were hot and trying to hit on them through that social network. I would go on Facebook and Instagram seeing new and old couples thinking, “Ugh, that doesn’t look like fun, why would anyone want to be locked down like that?” Then go on with my day eating lunch either alone flirting with girls online. I enjoyed that time in my life though. I went through everyday, not giving a care about anything or anyone......

Why We Love Tv Anti Heroes

...Daniel Holland April 13, 2014 Why We Love TV’s Anti-Heroes Is it possible today’s generation gradually evolved into an era in which selfishness and evil overpowers good? Over the past years society perceives the idea of a hero differently than it was perceived in the 21st century, nevertheless impacts our society hugely. It is no surprise why youth of today enjoy T.V. shows that are driven by torture, killing, drugs and drama. In fact these are among the T.V. shows with higher ratings. Hero is characterized as a person of good character who performs beneficial acts towards a community and influence an individual self-concept in a good manner. Today, the new hero is the anti-hero and his morally reprehensible conduct is excused by a good cause turning evil into good and at many times it is praised. In “Why We Love TV’s Anti-Heroes” Stephen Garrett describes this world as one with a strong desire and acceptance for anti-heroes. Garret uses ethos appeal by appealing to society’s moral and values. Garret states, “The moral compass is spinning on his axis” (320). Garret believes the audiences easily sympathize and identify with these despicable TV personalities because they reflect society’s own moral ambiguity. As a result it reflects the actions and behavior in today’s culture. Anti-heroes of today are embraced by society because they are more relatable to today’s cultural morality because being extremely good feels unattainable, therefore this culture opts for the middle...

Why Do We Love It's a Wonderful Life?

...Why Do We Love It’s a Wonderful Life? Fantasy is defined as anything that has no solid foundation in reality. Elements of fantasy are used in It’s a Wonderful Life to convey themes and create an interesting structure which amplifies these themes, ultimately winning the hearts of the American people. The genre of fantasy allows you to escape reality and lets your imagination ignite a world in which you have not seen before. In the film there are elements such as a parallel world, flashbacks, an overall fight of good versus evil, control the playback of reality, guardian angels, an attempt to complete a goal, and later an effort to ‘save a community’. In It’s a Wonderful Life director Frank Capra illustrates many elements of fantasy, in which is pulls you into a new world, constructed by imagination. The opening credits, which are illustrated on a story book, are where the ‘fairy-tale’ and fantasy mixture begins. As the first scene opens the town sign is covered in snow, as well as the ground, indicting a Wintery Wonderland, as the camera scans to the town of Bedford Falls. Capra demonstrates the typical small town, the snow covered ground, lights stung in the trees lining the sidewalks, and specialty shops. Even though it looks and seems completely normal you will still have the feeling of an imaginary or fantasy land. The film begins in the present time; the year is 1945 on Christmas Eve. Voiceovers occur, praying for George Bailey. After hearing such prayers,...

What We Talk About When We Talk About Love

...Communication is Key Communication is when someone gives or receives from another person information about that person's needs, desires, perceptions, knowledge, or affective states. Human beings need to communicate in order to share and makes other understand their sense of self and awareness of who they are. Expressing and listening others self-concept are essential for successful relationships in any area of our lives. Raymond Carver, an American short story writer and poet, was always concerned with the ways in which human beings communicate or fail to communicate with each other and how that affects people’s lives. Carver found the way to express this concern through stories such as “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” and “Cathedral”. He presents situations where the characters of these stories had difficulties communicating their feelings. Caver is known for his distinctive and well defined writing style. His narrative style is minimalist (Stern). Carver is not wordy; he writes just the necessary to make the readers understand the meaning he’s trying to give to the story. He usually uses as characters people who are from the working class or normal people like you or me. These normal people in Carver’s stories are described as people who can’t express what they think in words and as result fail to understand their lives (Stern). “Cathedral,” is a story about a couple who is visited by Robert, the wife’s blind friend. The unnamed narrator doesn’t express......
