Love Moderately

To ‘love moderately’ is to not take things to the extreme. When Friar Lawrence tells them to ‘love moderately’, he means that they shouldn’t take their relationship too fast, or they may ruin it. They should take their sweet time and enjoy their PERFECT relationship….

Hatred

I think a big part of hating something or someone is because other people may tell them things about them before they even meet the person, and it makes deep prejudices about them. But on the other hand, you could get to know someone and…

Should Schools Still Teach Shakespeare??

I definitely think schools should still teach Shakespeare in their English classes. He’s an excellent source to improve the level you read at, and is a good storyteller. Even though he died more than four hundred years ago, we can still learn lessons from the…

An Authority on Courage – Dwight Schrute

I think a big part of courage is how much of a fighter you are. I come from a long line of fighters. My maternal grandfather was the toughest guy I ever knew. World War II veteran, killed twenty men, and spent the rest of the…

Real Courage

In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Atticus says to Jem, “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you…
