Spiritual reassessment and moral reconciliation are the key to a happy ending in which excites a reader. A prime example is Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov in the novel Crime and Punishment. His moral and spiritual reconciliation in Siberia, at the end of the novel, served to break his previous isolationism from society, brought him together with the love of his life Sonia, and rejuvenates him as a person who can truly function in society.
As a little kid, growing up and being a doctor would be the greatest occupation ever. I remember running around our house to would “administer shots” my family and friends so I could make them “feel better”. I would then have to go back and check their heartbeat with my little plastic stethoscope. Thinking back on those times I still see myself graduating from a Radiology and Ultrasound tech program to receive a position in the medical field. I’ve always wanted to help people, and find out problems those patients may be facing.
Actually, he never wanted to study medical. It was his parent’s desire. They wanted him to be a doctor for their hospital. Truly, Andrew dreamt to be a musician. He loved music more than anyone. He used to be a band vocalist when he was a highschooler. He could play many music instruments very well. Even so, he kept studying medical well. After taking up 16 years of schooling and passed the USMLE or United Licensing Examination, he finally deserved to be a professional doctor.
An individual with “Free Will” is capable of making vital decisions and choices in life with own free consent. The individual chooses these decisions without any outside influence from a set of “alternative possibilities.” The idea of “free will” imposes a certain kind of power on an individual to make decisions of which he or she is morally responsible. This implies that “free will” would include a range of aspects such as originality, moral value, and self-governance. However, in life, individuals may not be free in making decisions. The aspect of freedom could entail remarkably a high status action and achievement in an individual’s life whose attainment could be close to impossibility. Often, people make
When he first enters his house, his family had “been crying” and had “suffered agonies” waiting, yet it changes to a “cry of rapturous joy” once he appears, immediately displaying the stark contrast between his emotional and affectionate family and him (186). His mother and sister clasp him in their arms, yet a “sudden, unbearable thought” prevents him from even “lifting his arms to embrace them (186).” As his family affectionately cries and hugs him, he is so selfishly concerned with his own past actions, he fails to return even the slightest bit of their caring and endearment. In exact contrast to his family “kiss[ing] him, laughing” and “cry[ing],” “he took a step forward, faltered, and fell to the ground (186).” Raskolnikov obsesses so much about his crime and his guilt, that when he tries to take a step forward and accept his family’s love, he falters and faints, showing after his murder of Alyona, he is completely unable to reunite with the pure joy and love that his family
In the face of Morrie's overwhelming compassion and tenderness, Ivan Ilych presents an opposite lifestyle. After a pleasantly carefree childhood he turned towards ambition and pursued an ever-larger salary and an ever-increasing social rank. Ivan lived without values and without attachments, easily moving between cities and jobs. He cared little for the great inconvenience of his family, and even less for his wife: "he hate[d] her with his whole soul" (Ivn, 139). Commitment was a prison to be avoided at all costs, a detriment to his proper and official existence. Genuine love touched Ivan only rarely and certainly not during the dying moments when he needed it the most.
In many books, like Crime and Punishment by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky the main character usually faces both good and bad influences from supporting characters. In this book, mainly Svidrigailov and Sonia influenced Raskolnikov who presumed to be the main character. The influences from Sonia and Svidrigailov both shape and change Raskolnikov and develop the plot of the book. Since Raskolnikov was a character being mixed of good and bad traits, it allowed him to easily be influenced in which are expressed as the book progresses.
I hope to possibly work for a sports team and or be employed at Kaiser as a sports or shoulder and ankle specialist. I have seen so many sports specialist, but every time I pay a visit I am fascinated with all the certain types of specialty doctors have. I want to be different from some doctors though. Instead of calling me Dr. Thai I would want people to address me as just Jason, for the reason I believe that titles create barriers. Ultimately, my biggest goal would to one day travel the world to third world countries to provide help to those in need. With the knowledge obtained from college, I could work with others to make the lives of other abroad a life worth living. I am not pursuing this career for the money, but for the reason that I may help those who may not even be able to afford doctors. My aspirations now were shaped by my favorite aunt. My aunt was a dentist who sacrificed time with her family to take care of mine. She would give everything to see my family happy. I remember she sang the song "My Heart Will Go On" as I played the song on my trumpet. She passed away a couple years ago, and I was unable to thank her for all she has done. When it is finally my turn to join her, I can finally tell her thank you. Her heart truly did go on, and I am ready to work hard to achieve my goals. For now I make progress day by
I specifically wish to become a Pediatrician, the love and patience I have for children is insane. I love helping kids and working with them. Because of my medical class, I can become a medical assistant right after high school, but I really want to get a college degree and follow my dad’s steps.
Many people in today’s society find themselves guilty of believing the common misconception that money can buy happiness. They go to school to become a doctor, lawyer, or other high paying job, with money and social status as their only incentives. Many will find that they have fallen into a trap, when they start earning their large salary, but still are not happy. While there were many messages present throughout Studs Terkels Working: a graphic adaptation, the most important reoccurring message seemed to be that having pride and dignity as well as working at a job that fulfills one’s life passion or is simply enjoyable are more important qualities than earning a large salary and having a high rank on the social ladder. The interaction of
Everyone has their dreams and aspirations of what they want to be. The profession I plan to go into is the medical field. I am passionate about this because it feels great to help someone. Whenever a person is in need, it should be an instinct to help them and this is the main reason I am wanting to become a doctor. Every time I am sick I go to the doctor and they are able to help me get better. In a couple of days my sickness would be gone and I would be so happy and thankful that the doctor was able to assist me. This inspired me to become a doctor because once they finished their prognosis it makes the person feel so much better. Since I volunteer in a hospital over the weekends, usually discharging patients or delivering flowers it helps me see an aspect of what it would be like to work as a doctor. Communicating with patients and nurses has shown me it is a pleasure to help others.
I've only wanted to practice medicine since my junior year of highschool. Nonetheless, I had everything planned out; graduate, go to a big university, go to med school and work in a hospital. I wanted to be able to help a 77 year old's heart keep pumping blood even after it failed. I wanted to be able to diagnose and cure anything
I want to be a physician, so I plan to be pre-med in college, and then I will either go straight into medical school or enter an MD/PhD program. I am applying for the Chris Hoffmann Memorial Scholarship to help reduce the amount of debt I will acquire throughout these years of higher education. Helping people gives me purpose, so I will devote the rest of my life to helping people by becoming a physician, volunteering, and doing anything I can. I try to incorporate helping people into every facet of my life, and I have an especially strong love of family.
