In 1983 Aharon Appelfeld published a work of fiction titled Tzili that closely resembled his own personal Holocaust experiences. This work of fiction revolves around a maturing teen who is alone and on the run during the Holocaust. In Tzili, Appelfeld brings to life his characters, which include Tzili, Katrina, Mark, and Linda. Throughout this literary analysis Appelfelds’ memoir Story of a Life will be used to access the parallels that exist between Appelfeld’s own personal experience and his fictional work Tzili.
The four life stories I have chosen to reflect on are Santos, Raven, Chip, and Manuel. Santos endured many hardships as a young boy, as he was raised in a farm in Mexico without an education. He then came to the United States where he had many jobs, such a washing dishes and cutting wood boards, but never a high pay job. Throughout his life, he lost a brother and his father. He then came back to the farm to build a house out of adobe. Raven, from Dallas, loves music and this was the main reason she came to Austin. She had around eight jobs in Austin over a three-year period and she started to dislike Austin. She always had two jobs to support herself, but she was not liking it as she had to deal with many customers and faced sexual harassment.
Now it is time to get down to business starting off with the Ten Commandments. Now I’m sure you are familiar with this for Christianity is a common religion well known to those who disagree with it. Now it is called so because it consists of rules. A few are Thou shall not kill, and Honor Thou Father and Thy Mother. There are several more. All of the codes are against any kind of murder and each has their punishments. For the Christians they leave it
What is the meaning of life? This is basically the most powerful question that we humans could ask ourselves. Probably the most instigating question too. “For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.” Viktor E. Frankl.
My story begins on the night of January 3, 2009. I never knew something so profound and distinct could come out of a situation not every young adult gets presented with. Had it not been for this night, my destiny would have a different ending. The passion to succeed and make my story become a non-fictitious life event has been the sole source of my motivation to fulfilling my dream of becoming a nurse.
What is the meaning of life? Well known Greek philosphers such as Socrates and Plato believed that our purpose in this life was to gain knowledge in preparation for the next life. Other Philosophers such as Epicurus believed that pleasure is the main goal in life. After giving these ideas lots of thought, I have come to my own conclusion that the true meaning of life is far more complex than either of these; far too complex for any human to fully comprehend. In fact these two different philosophies are only part of the grand picture. If it were that easy for men to figure out our lives wouldn't be so messed up now. The meaning of life revolves around many different things. I

“What do you want to do with your life? I wanna rock!” (Twisted Sisters, 1984) I decided that I wanted to become a chiropractor because my mom helps me when my muscles are sore from playing sports but also because how massages work to heal and working with muscles and bones is interesting to me. I believe that working with patients and helping them to relieve their bone and muscle pain would be a fun thing to do. Today, I am going to tell you all about chiropractors and massage therapists. Today you’ll learn the statistics of both chiropractors and massage therapists alike (even if you don’t want to), also how to become one and what they do, and finally all about chiropractors and massage therapists.
Is there a meaning to life? First, to clear up any misunderstandings in the next few paragraphs you are about to read, I shall explain a few things. I am not talking about the individual people in our lives, that mean so much to us, or individual lives. That is a whole other matter. What I mean by the "meaning of life", is the greater picture. There are people all over the world, doing their own thing, living their own lives, in their own areas. Is there a point to this? The people themselves, benefit from learning and having experiences while they're alive, but then they die, and all they have accomplished, ends. Then the process begins all over again with the next generation. So one purpose for life is established.
Innovators throughout human history have all shared a common characteristic, which has been the ideological belief that if you commit yourself to the unthinkable, surely you will reach the unimaginable. Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Steve Jobs, and various other distinguished scholars understood the importance of never letting adversity destroy the potential for creativity. Our brief moment in this world to shine leaves behind a narrative for every individual. My life revolved around the presence of failure, which brought birth to a beginning of enlightenment.
According to Webster's dictionary, life is "the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body; a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings."
College is coming to an end for me, and I now have to begin my journey in the real world. There have been many things that I’ve learned today that have helped groom me into what and who I strive to be in the near future. By being an athlete I had the opportunity to experience life a bit different from other college students. Being a student-athlete I was taught skills like critical thinking, immense problem-solving skills, original creativity, and well-rounded communication and ethical judgment. Although this wasn’t all taught to me on the court I strive to preserve these skills and make them apart of my daily routine during my journey.
To see the love of a couple flourish is the best thing ever! Let me tell you, I have known Carly and Joe all my life. I went to Highschool with Joe and was his best friend since freshman year. I still remember meeting him for the first time in Robotics class, he always laughed and smiled. It would brighten everyone else’s day, even when he was truly sad. I never really known him to be sad. He always was happy, even when he got in a accident and his baby, this red Ford Focus was completely wrecked.
Somebody has rightly said “Life is a journey” and i completely agree with that person. In fact i believe, life is merely not a single journey, it is indeed a combination of various small journeys that teaches one or the other thing to a person and leave and ever lasting impact on his or her life. Today in this article, i am going to talk about one such journey of mine, which was for few hours but have left an everlasting impact on my mind forever. Delhi metro services- one of the best and the most commonly used transportation means in Delhi, it do not need and sort of introduction. But for the ones who don’t know it, let me tell you- few decades back METROS were once those trains which can only be seen in discovery channel or in some hi-fi foreign magazines and in developed nations.But
Life as we know it could vanish within seconds. The next day is not promised to anyone that walks on this earth. As we live our everyday lives peacefully, we tend not to think what our mission or purpose in life is. Instead, we think what we must do for that to be a “successful” person. Despite this way of thinking, just think for a second. What makes life meaningful? What is life anyway? These questions dive right into the heart of the philosophical, psychological, and the biological aspects of life and what the true meaning of life is. This is a very arguable topic due to every person’s different perspective on life and what it means to them. In summary, I personally think that life is simply what you make of it and each person’s accomplishments has its own merit
