It Happened One Night

Intro Sample...


Another scene that shows the reinforcement of the moral or societal restrictions of a couple was when they “built” the “Walls of Jericho.” The “Walls of Jericho” was made out of a blanket separating the non-couple couple. This scene is very popular because Ellie and Peter were “forced” to sleep in the same little room. They were forced to be nice to each other. In that same room, they got to know each other and grew to actually like each other. And they had to change in the same room.

There are other little things that you’ll notice in the movie that reinforces the moral and societal restrictions of a couple, married or not. View More »

    A Geisha’s Struggle For Happiness “We human beings are only a part of something very much larger. When we walk along, we may crush a beetle or simply cause a change in the air so that a fly ends up where it might never have gone otherwise. And if we think of the same example but with ourselves in the role of the insect, and the larger universe in the role we’ve just played, it’s perfectly clear that we’re affected every day by forces over which we have no more control than the poor beetle has over our gigantic foot as it descends upon it. What are we to do? We must use whatever method

    “Away! Away! For I will fly to thee, not charioted by Bacchus and his pards, but on the viewless wings of Poesy, though the dull brain perplexes and retards: Already with thee! Tender is the night, and haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne, cluster’d around by all her starry Fays; but there is no light, save what from heaven is with the breezes blown through verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways.” This is a poem by John Keats called “Ode to a Nightingale” that inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald to come up with the title of this great novel; Tender Is the Night. Fitzgerald’s writing style impacted

    For Your Consideration: Letters Of Thanks To My Rapist

    2369 words, 10 pages

    I am reluctant to write about you raping me. It is the type of thing that puts people so very on edge, edge of their seats, clinging to the edge, need a drink to take the edge off kind of edge. Before you raped me, I was vibrant in the worst kind of way. I moved like I was a dancer and danced like I was terrible in bed. But I was not a walking contradiction because to say that would be cliche and I was no cliche. It's true that most of the time I was being watched, like I was this little vibrant spec in the middle of a sea of black umbrellas and suits. A vibrant spec that was undenia

    The sounds of blaring sirens and heavy traffic were muffled inside the Osaka Boxing Center, where all that could be heard were the heavy outcries from the audience. The grand finals to determine the Middleweight California State Champion was about to commence. The two fighters were longtime rival and friends Damon and Alfonso. Both fighters were known for their sense of compassion and nobility, especially being boxers, but recent tabloids claiming that Damon would triumph contaminated Alfonso with a sinister state.

    The Last Leaf O'henry

    In a little district west of Washington Square the streets have run crazy and broken themselves into small strips called "places." These "places" make strange angles and curves. One Street crosses itself a time or two. An artist once discovered a valuable possibility in this street. Suppose a collector with a bill for paints, paper and canvas should, in traversing this route, suddenly meet himself coming back, without a cent having been paid on account! So, to quaint old Greenwich Village the art people soon came prowling, hunting for north windows and eighteenth-century gables and Dutch at

    Titanic Essay

    My name is Elizabeth. I am 25 now and it has been 10 years since the horrendous night when the Titanic sunk. I stepped out of my car to a sunny spring day. The sky was a clear crystal blue and there were no clouds to be seen. I looked ahead and there it was, ‘the Ship of Dreams’- as they called it. I always heard that it was big but I wasn’t expecting it to be that big! All I could hear were little children screaming with excitement: and all I could see were the thousands of people saying (what they didn’t yet know) their last goodbyes. I walked slowly and anxiously to the ship. A

    Night

    714 words, 3 pages

    Loss, one word with so many meanings and simple and nothing can change it. Loss, of a loved one, faith, trust, happiness, your own life; and once it is gone, it is lost, and good luck trying to find it. Sayonara, au revoir, adios, bye. Elie Wiesel’s Night deals with his loss of faith in his God. Wiesel’s problem can be root all the way back to 1942, the beginning of Elie’s awakening, his first insight into the real world, his first insight into the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a horrid event, of ruthless killing, of senseless slaughter, destroying families, and a whirlwind of destruction. Unde

    The sun inched through the green and ivory curtains and unmasked the layers of dust that floated around the room. It seemed like so many years ago. It was sometime in the summer between the hot months of June and July; the last day of a weeks vacation. I sit, peeling an orange with a knife, so as not to break my just painted red-satin nails, feet propped up on the table, un-shoed and sock-less. I notice the lime-green smoothie mixer that came complimentary with the hotel room. I guess that it had to be from Target and remember that I need to buy a new razor and shampoo and
