Together we will...




Here is an essay i wrote for english class back in october, pretty good essay. Got an A on it.

Together We Will Fail To Succeed…

Death. Despair. Destruction. These words travel throughout the world every day. They define the bases of societies and peoples downfall. These words have existed all throughout history, their meaning followed through, some caused by individuals ,but most caused by groups of people.

Tragic things happen to everyone, it can not be avoided. Everyone will fail, whether individually, or together. Everything a person does today will not help them in the future. Their actions will only lead towards misery, despair, and hopelessness. A person may think that he or she has succeeded in life, by getting a good career, or having a nice and loving family, but, in reality, their success will end. No matter what the person does, he or she will die. Everything and everyone dies. Death causes people to fail because they can not take his or her life’s accomplishments and successes with them to their eternal life. A person will never truly achieve anything, for a short time they will think that they have, but death will still come upon them. That person might think that they are leaving ideas and items for future generations, but in actual sense they are not. Anything someone does will not be remembered. That person or thing might remember it, but they will cease to exist one day also. With time memories disappear into history. Today in school we do study history, but unless a person does something remarkable, it is not remembered. An average person will not be remembered. Sometimes even the famous person is not remembered after hundreds and hundreds of years. It is because these people will be replaced by more modern people, for they make more changes to the society at the time than the historical people did.

Together we will destroy the earth. This does not mean that we will literally blow it up or anything, this means we will indirectly harm it, eventually leading to our demise. The earth can only supply humans with a limited amount of resources. Once these are gone, mankind will have to think of something to do. Even today humans are destroying the earth because we are cutting down trees and polluting the air. These activities and more are destroying it a little at a time. Mankind is thinking they are improving the world but they are not. They are cutting down trees in order to fit their own needs. They are building structures which is causing pollution, which is destroying the ozone layer. This heat is melting the polar ice caps, making water levels across the world rise. In all sense it is not the environmental impacts that are harming humans it is humans that are harming the environment.

Together we are destroying our society. In today’s society we have multiple wars and violence going on. These wars are causing many deaths among soldiers who had hopes and dreams. The wars are causing governments to change powers, and they are ruining people’s lives. They are causing even harmless people who have never did any harm to anybody to lose hope and die.

Death is what causes people to fail in life. If it wasn’t for death, every single person in the whole world would always succeed at everything, but that is not the case in this life, if someone can succeed it will be wasted. Now, if someone thinks there is a way, though, to not fail in life: they are right. As long as a person believes that they truly have led a good life with good loving people and they believe they have succeeded then they have. The only way a person succeeds in life is if they believe in themselves. Believing in yourself is key to life and true success. Together we can change the future.

It's an interesting take on things, Drummer. I've known many successes in my life that will, I believe be successful long after I pass this world. For instance, I've written some pretty good books that I believe will still be a good read long after I pass to my reward, when I die. Dying itself is easy; everyone does it once. But leaving can tell much about a person, and many good testimonies of success are from the way a person leaves this life. That's legacy. I've taught people things they didn't know, and ignited their passion for success in those things. They have succeeded, from their work, to their families and friends, and the world has been changed because good people did good things. I always believed I could do successful things; I've never not given my own ability doubts.

Nice work. Congrats on the good grade.

The topic was together we will... and mine was the only pessimist serious one... he said he was amazed when he gave me the A, since it was pessimist.

I'm reminded of what G.K. Chesterton had to say about 'believing in yourself'.

Thoroughly worldly people never understand even the world; they rely altogether on a few cynical maxims which are not true. Once I remember walking with a prosperous publisher, who made a remark which I had often heard before; it is, indeed, almost a motto of the modern world. Yet I had heard it once too often, and I saw suddenly that there was nothing in it. The publisher said of somebody, "That man will get on; he believes in himself." And I remember that as I lifted my head to listen, my eye caught an omnibus on which was written "Hanwell." I said to him, "Shall I tell you where the men are who believe most in themselves? For I can tell you. I know of men who believe in themselves more colossally than Napoleon or Caesar. I know where flames the fixed star of certainty and success. I can guide you to the thrones of the Super-men. The men who really believe in themselves are all in lunatic asylums." He said mildly that there were a good many men after all who believed in themselves and who were not in lunatic asylums. "Yes, there are," I retorted, "and you of all men ought to know them. That drunken poet from whom you would not take a dreary tragedy, he believed in himself. That elderly minister with an epic from whom you were hiding in a back room, he believed in himself. If you consulted your business experience instead of your ugly individualistic philosophy, you would know that believing in himself is one of the commonest signs of a rotter. Actors who can't act believe in themselves; and debtors who won't pay. It would be much truer to say that a man will certainly fail, because he believes in himself. Complete self-confidence is not merely a sin; complete self-confidence is a weakness. Believing utterly in one's self is a hysterical and superstitious belief like believing in Joanna Southcote: the man who has it has `Hanwell' written on his face as plain as it is written on that omnibus."

Wow... I'm so amazed by this essay.

Not because it's good, but because such a sub-par composition should never be given the highest possible grade. I'm also amazed that you call a work of such length an essay.

It is truly sad to see the failures of modern education first hand.

Together humanity will experience all that both good and bad, with the bad necessary to make any experience feel good. Only when world ends will God be able to experience a better reality. Since GOD is the accumulation of everyone, each of our consciousness is something God will remember having experienced as well when everything merges together again at the end. GOD will be the only one who can judge you fairly, since he remembers it as something he did with the knowledge you had, but he also knows everything else so he can draw a conclusion. Everything that has meaning gets it from having an opposite force, so if there is a good afterlife, there also need to be a worse possible alternative.

If you imagined yourself in his situation, you would be feeling like a crazy man was screaming at you for no reason and staying calm rather escalate was him choosing the right course of action. If someone having experienced that from both your perspective where to judge who was wrong and who was correct, you would be crazy guy in this situation your describing to us.

Also the guy is right, that people who believe in themselves are able to accomplish more, because its positive thoughts of doing something that causes you to do those things, negative thoughts just give people reasons not to bother when anyone can do what it takes to do something with enough work put forward. Most ideas on how to do real magic which have been studied and practiced in the past involves thinking something enough or several people thinking it, the chances of that happening compared to alternative increase. I don't think the magic exists, although anything you do is preceded by thought, which motivated you do something.
