A Safe Player or A Passionate Dreamer? The Choice Is Yours

By Dishi Solanki:
Life does not give you what you deserve. Life only gives you what you demand ~ Anonymus
A year back when I was in India, I too had a dream. Dream of landing in USA, getting my MBA & making a mark at the exact opposite end of the globe. Sure enough, here I am sitting in my desired country doing exactly what I had envisioned. It was not a smooth jog & required dedicated sleepless nights but dream it was which manifested into reality. I have always demanded with my head held high from my favourite pal “Dear Loving God” and he has never let me down! Never beg for what is ours, you and only you can grab it. So, demand and work steadfastly.
Before Michelangelo could make impossible possible in his painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, he had seen the unseen as a visualization in his mind. No one else saw the impossible dream until it was finished in 1512.
My heart bleeds to say that with growing age comes constantly fading credence to dream. We seldom realize the incredible power that we have within us; the power to believe in ourselves & live our visions. Ironically we tend to focus more than needed on the criticism & pessimistic talks pelted on us making us believe in 1000 reasons to not set out fearlessly to achieve the dream that we have. I would like to share the story of 3 Frogs that I read a while back:
There was once a bunch of 3 tiny frogs, who arranged a running competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants.
The race began…
No one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. They shouted, “Oh, way too difficult!!! They will NEVER make it to the top” and “Not a chance. The tower is too high”. The tiny frogs began collapsing, but one continued higher and higher. This one wouldn’t give up! And he reached the top. Everyone wanted to know how this one frog managed such a great feat.
His secret? This little frog was deaf!!
Putting dreams into action requires courage & I know for a fact that each one of us has that courage to turn a pleb into a prince. Be like the third frog. Go deaf to negativity because self-scepticism only helps you major the minor things. Nobody can judge you better than yourself because nobody can gauge your real strengths & shortcoming better than you. If I have learnt anything from my personal experience is that we all are magnets and we attract things that are exactly parallel to our thought process. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. So, don’t be a safe player & curse fate or life for being iniquitous. If you earnestly want something, then dream about it & use every ounce of your competence to achieve it.
Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do

The Passionate Shepherd To His Love And The Nymph's Respond

...The two poems, The Passionate Shepherd to His Love and The Nymph’s Respond to the Shepherd are two poems that have to do with love, nature, time, and materialistic items, but they each have different views of the topic. The poem the Shepherd has a keen view of love that lasts forever, “The shepherds’ swains shall dance and sing, For thy delight each May morning” (v. 21-22). The shepherd believes that love is forever like the nature and the seasons. The shepherd also has a materialistic view on love, “A gown made of the finest wool, Which from our pretty lambs we pull; Fair lined slippers for the cold, With buckles of the purest gold” (v.13-16). Materials are used as tokens of love in the shepherd’s eyes. The shepherd wants to live in the moment and not think about the future when it comes to love and the way he feels, “For thy delight each May morning: If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me and be my love” (v.22-24), this also shows that...

The Passionate Shepard

...Christopher Marlowe: The Passionate Shepherd To His Love Composition III/Literature Christopher Marlowe was an English poet of the Elizabethan era, late 1500 to early 1600. He obtained his education from University of Cambridge, The Kings School, Canterbury and Corpus Christi. In 1589 while attending Cambridge University at its Corpus Christi College he wrote The Passionate Shepherd to His Love. It first appeared in print in poetry collections published in 1599 and1600. Marlowe’s theme of “The Passionate Shepherd” is the rapture of springtime love in a simple setting. Pastoral poems generally center on the love of a shepherd for a maiden, on the death of a friend, or on the quiet simplicity of rural life. The writer of a pastoral poem may be an educated city dweller, like Marlowe, who extolls the virtues of a shepherd girl or longs for the peace and quiet of country life. Through the descriptions in his poem he is not just conveying to his love, but also extolling the readers to “seize the day”, urging one to enjoy the moment without worrying about the future. The poem’s speaker is of a young man who is a shepherd who asks the young lady to “live with me and be my love,” (Marlowe, 1600, p. 749), noting that they will enjoy all the pleasures and beauty that nature has to offer. The description of “shallow rivers to whose falls, Melodious birds sing madrigals”, (Marlowe, 1600, p. 749), gives the vison of a river flowing with birds......

Man vs. Woman

...Man vs. Woman? When poets decide how they want to express their ideas and opinions, they often use personas, which may or may not be themselves. The main persona in Christopher Marlowe’s poem, “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” makes promises to the intended audience to stay by his side. In contrast, the main persona in Sir Walter Raleigh’s poem, “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd” appears to respond to that of Marlowe’s poem in a negative tone. Because of the nature of both poems, Marlowe’s poem has a masculine voice, whereas Raleigh’s poem has a feminine voice. The history of the poem and the way it was written can help decipher whether if the poem was a masculine tone or a feminine tone, or even the each way gender reacts to the idea of courting presently in comparison to how the poets interpreted courting. Both poems were published during the late 17th century and the early 18th century. A critical essay written by Sheri E. Metzger states that “the great Elizabethan lyric sequences typically begin by identifying the poet's mistress as the primary lyric audience” and this quote shows that during the Elizabethan time period many of the lyrics of poems written would refer their mistresses as the audience. Poems were a very popular way of courting members of the opposite sex. Both poems were a way for the poet to show their emotions to their lovers. Marlowe attempted to do this by expressing the many things he had to offer to his love in order for her to come by his......

The Nymphs Reply

...Nancy Gilmore ENG/125 Literature in Society January 22, 2010 Mr. Jeff Verver In “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd” by Sir Walter Raleigh, is a comeback poem to Christopher Marlowe’s poem, “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love”. Both of these poems use imagery and symbolism to describe love. The formation and construction of these poems are consistent and related. The poems also create rhythms that allow the text to flow and come together. Raleigh main focus in his poem describes conflict and rejection of being in love. A nymph is goddesses in ancient mythology represented as maidens living the mountains, forests, meadow, and waters. Raleigh uses the word "nymph" instead of "girl" in the title so the reader can identify that the speaker is a girl. The stanzas in each poem often reflect one another and Raleigh’s poem answers the request to the shepherd. Marlowe begins with the proposal for the maiden to "Come live with me and bee my Love" (1). This statement made by the shepherd is asking for her to be with him. His request is simple and truthful, with "all (her) pleasures prove" (2) if only she will live with him and be his love. He wanted to give her eternal love through his materialistic world, but this perception of love represents the idea that love can be bought at a price.      Raleigh’s reply to the shepherd proves that love is not what it seems to be. He states in the first stanza “If all the world and love were young, And truth in every shepherds tongue...

Psychology

...Carl Jung, Alfred Adler and Sigmund Freud are known to be Pioneers of psychology, influential thinkers and major contributors to the modern science of psychology. All three men had very different distinct theories, but all shared one thing they were very passionate when it came to their endeavors and their thoughts and never settled with conclusion. The three dedicated their entire lives to a better understanding of the human mind and how it works, the commitment they made to psychology contributed significantly to how we practice it today. Among these three founders of mind science, Freud is indisputably the most acclaimed and was a birthing factor that helped to develop the work of the latter two. Sigmund Freud, considered to most in the field as “The Father of Modern Psychology”, viewed the human psyche from a sexual perspective sometimes so much that one might find his works strange, and somewhat perverse but none the less revolutionary and genius. Freud theorized that the human mind was made up of three basic components. The three components are “The Id”,” The Ego”, and “The Superego”. These three individual parts of the human mind often conflict with one another, shaping personality. Adler’s psychology, which he called "Individual Psychology," was based on indivisibility of the personality. His most notable stray from Freud's teaching was Adler’s belief that it was vital to view the human being as a whole entity. Whereas Frued portrays the human as a large combination...

Mercutio Foil

...Shakespeare uses Mercutio to highlight the actions and personality of Romeo. When Mercutio is introduced in the play, he makes fun of Romeo’s thoughts on love and explaining dreams are lies. Mercutio does not care that much for love and does not believe in dreams while Romeo is the total opposite. Mercutio makes Romeo's love seem more dramatic and passionate. When Romeo is heartbroken over Rosaline Mercutio jokes to lift his spirits. “You are a lover. Borrow Cupid's wings And soar with them above a common bound” (Romeo and Juliet 1.4.17-18). Without Mercutio’s sarcastic positive energy Romeo would not seem as pessimistic as he is. Without Mercutio we would not see the dramatic tragedy of Romeo’s...

The Detailed Search on Disney Land

...princesses, villains, dwarfs, Mickey Mouse, other Disney characters and can enjoy lots of rides. How Disneyland differentiated from other places was that it had 'Walt Disney', the brain that totally changed the lives of people by adding magic to their lives. Walt Disney summarized his creativity in one word: Imagineering. The term “Imagineering” combines the words imagination and engineering. Imagineering enabled him to transform the dreams, fantasies and wishes of his imagination into concrete reality. Disney’s thinking strategy involved exploring something using three different perceptual positions. An insight into these positions comes from the comment made by one of his animators that: “…there were actually three different Walts: the dreamer, the realist, and the spoiler (critic).

The Great Gatsby Passage Analysis

...World in search of a new life. Carraway says how, when the sailors first viewed the New World, they were “face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder” (Fitzgerald Chapter 9). This metaphor says that Gatsby’s capacity for wonder could only be accurately compared to the American dream from hundreds of years ago. Fitzgerald’s using this staple of the exploration era makes the reader realize that Gatsby is a man who can be amazed by many things. He can easily become passionate about something that catches his eye. This metaphor stresses just how awestruck Gatsby can be and how nothing in their current world can appropriately compare to it. On top of this metaphor, the tone of the passage also helps express him as a man of wonder. Fitzgerald’s tone presents the idea of Gatsby having a great capacity for wonder. In this passage, Carraway is reflecting on the past and fondly remembering the kind of man Gatsby was—a dreamer. Gatsby was a man willing to chase all of his dreams, even the unattainable ones left “somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city” (Chapter 9). The passage’s tone makes it seem like he was more of an idealist who chased after his pipe dreams because he fully believed that he was so close to reaching them. Despite that, his dreams tended not to manifest. Even though his dreams only lived in the past, Gatsby would wholeheartedly pursue them, not caring about whether or not his aspirations were realistic......

Statement of Purpose

...“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, awake to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers by day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” These words from British Army Officer, T.E Lawrence, have guided the creation of my own personal mantra: “Live your dreams with open eyes”. This mantra has been affirmed in my life as it drives me to actively pursue my passions – and there are many - with fervour and an undaunted determination. When one door closes, a mere crack of a window is enough to encourage me towards my goals, whether they be emotional, physical, academic or spiritual. I have always been told that I am an anomaly. Though I am artistic by nature with a natural talent for singing, writing and the visual arts, I always had a love for the sciences, specifically medicine. This love affair grew from watching the many medical dramas which drew me into ‘diagnosing’ and taking care of relatives, tending to sick pets, even nursing a plant back to health. As I grew older and began to see the world from a more mature perspective, I realized that I what I really wanted to do was help. Help people, animals – anyone and anything that suffered in some way. Sadly or perhaps decidedly, I was not able to pursue medicine due to financial circumstances. Instead, I pursued an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science. This honed...

Example of a Cip Paper for Com

...Crystal Peraza CIP Paper Susan Owens Com 110-020 February 1st, 2012 My parents have always told me that even as a little girl I was never shy about speaking my mind or saying hello to perfect strangers. In grocery stores I would announce my doubt at my father’s excuse for not buying my favorite cereal; “What do you mean you have no money?! You have a job!” I suppose you could say I embarrassed him quite a few times. As I’ve gotten older, I’m much more mindful of the things I say and to whom I say them. However, I’m just as outgoing, if not more. I am a “perfect” balance of being shy and putting myself out there. It all depends on the context in which interaction is happening. At work, I meet strangers everyday and I don’t mind making conversation with them as I walk them to a table and talking to them as if I’d known them for years. In a new classroom setting, I don’t generally mind being myself—but the shyness of the people around me makes me feel even more reserved. I’m generally very comfortable talking to new people and absolutely love listening and learning about others. It has always been strange to me that as much as I love talking to people, I’m absolutely terrified of speaking in front of them. I’m typically bubbly and fun and the second the spotlight is on me, I get very quiet and feel terribly awkward. As I go on with the speech, it gets worse because I’m worried that people see me as some shaky freak. One thing that I would hope this class......

Tucker Case Analysis

...whether it be with the Tucker Aviation Corporation or his venture with Harry Miller and occasional trips to Indianapolis Motor Speedway. When he got the idea for a new type of car, he was extremely excited about it’s possibilities. He thought that he could revolutionize the way an automobile worked, and was extremely confident that he could make it happen. Tucker was a confident man. He was confident that he had a great idea and confident that he could find qualified people to help him achieve his dream. To the dismay of Abe Karatz, he stood up before the Government and blasted the “Big 3” automobile makers in Detroit. He said that they were “guilty of negligence, and they don’t care about safety.” What Tucker did took cojones. He was a passionate man who was not afraid to speak his mind.
