The Right To Fail

As Winston Churchill once said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Something to think about as we venture into the world to accomplish our future aspirations. How determined are you to succeed? Will you have the courage to continue when all odds are being faced? If success was the end, we would have little to strive for and if failure was the end, we all would have been defeated very early in life and beaten up to the core. The courage to continue is what matters. Courage has numerous advantages some of which are even better than succeeding. In success, it means having the courage to improve and strive for something better with every chance granted. In defeat, courage is what strengthens you to rise each time you fall and to move forward despite the complications.

 Many people are afraid of taking that extra step to becoming someone better, different, or trying new things because they are scared of failure. However, that fear of failure can be turned into a courageous act where you persevere and motivate yourself. For example, David Bowie never stopped reinventing himself in the music industry. Bowie did not let the difficult times dictate his dreams of becoming a music artist. As there were many times where Bowie’s albums didn’t make it to the top charts, financial problems arise where he was in debt/bankrupt, marital issues, sexual orientation crisis, and his family history of psychological disorder (schizophrenia) scared him but one thing that defines it all was the courage within to continue to work on his future endeavors. As time passed by, Bowie’s music evolved as he did across the world, and fame flourish. David Bowie is an icon to the world and shows that one failure doesn’t mean the end of your dream. Whenever you attempt to do something and fail, it should allow for growth to work harder to succeed the next. Failures do not have to lead to permanent damage- it can be overcome.

 Success is not measured by how many times you manage not to fall, but rather by the number of times you get back up. With this in mind, one should have the courage to pick yourself up from the dirt and try harder to overcome the obstacles in life, even when the odds seem stacked against one. Jean-Michel Basquiat walked towards light even in times of darkness and brushed off the dust and dirt from the failures he faced in life. Basquiat was homeless, unemployed, and facing a life crisis but that did not stop him from becoming a rising star in New York and across the globe. Basquiat’s great act of determination was incredible, brought about changes to society, and enhanced critical thinking. The freedom of expression of art revealed his views on the world and honesty about what enlightened him, his beliefs, and most of all his fear for the world. The failures caused a great deal of pain to Basquiat, but as observed the pain made him stronger, and came to the realization that life is once, and it is worth living to the greatest.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts,” said Winston Churchill. Even though failure is a basic part of life, it is one of our greatest fears and the road to success is endless. Always succeeding doesn’t mean anything is there was nothing taken from it. Everyone fails, it isn’t fatal if you do. The important thing is not to give up once you have failed, but to keep working on what you failed so you can succeed the next time.

Techniques Used In Romeo And Juliet

William Shakespeare both includes themes of drama, tragedy, and sacrifice in their love story in English literary tradition. The English poet William seeks tragedy in the end of his stories. The American novelist uses the word “love” as a real-life scenario. 

William Shakespeare’s Romero and Juliet’s tragic love story ends horrifically, where two young teenagers fall in love but are forbidden to be with each other. Shakespeare’s Juliet and Romeo is a tragedy so there must be a tragic hero. Therefore, Romeo is the tragic hero. In the city of Verona, The Montagues is a rich family as well as the Capulets. Romeo is already in love a women name Rosaline, in which Romeo does not mention anything about her as a person, but rather her appearance. He then goes to the Capulet’s party in disguise and sees Juliet and to Romeo, it was love at first sight.

Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!

It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night.

Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear.

Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.

So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows

As yonder lady o’er her fellows shows.

The measure done. I’ll watch her place of stand,

And touching hers, make blessed my rude hand.

Did my heart love till bow? Forswear it sight!

For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night. ( Shakespeare Act 1, Scene 5)

Shakespeare uses imagery to show Juliet is like a dove walking amongst crows. It symbolizes Juliet of being innocent and peace and how Juliet lights up the room. When confronting each other Romeo uses metaphors to convince Juliet to kiss him. Their relationship faces conflict from the family feud ( Tybalt and Mercutio) , but now also a conflict with religion. Masculinity, during Shakespeare’s time, had two different and opposing sides. Men could either choose to be violent on behalf of their father and family name or choose self-control and probably a woman to love. For example, Mercutio was killed by Tybalt and dies defending Romeo’s honor, and when Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt and defend his family name because of his love for Juliet. Tybalt also dies defending the family name. Juliet fakes her own death by taking drugs temporarily to be only with Romeo and in this case Romeo assumes her passing is real.

Romeo is stuck by her beauty and the way death looks on Juliet. “Why art thou, yet so fair? Shall I believe/ that unsubstantial death is so amorous?”(Shakespeare Act 5, Scene 3). He continues to ask himself questions and is confused. Shakespeare expresses dramatic irony and advises the audience to be aware that Juliet is slowly recovering and awaking from the drugs. He believes in true love and even in death forces him to press onward with his own suicide by drinking poison from a vial just as about to be awakened. When Juliet awakens she’s realizes he had committed suicide for her and therefore she stabs herself with his dagger. Shakespeare’s themes include love vs. lust and hate vs. love causing two cross lovers in a tragic death.

The Renaissance period (English), William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet’s love story is similar to The Notebook of families disapproving love. Shakespeare’s beliefs about love end in betrayals, sacrificing and tragedy. Juliet’s family had marriage arrangements for her and Romeo was never intended to be in her life due to being enemies with his family. The play is filled with contrast like these: Tragedy mixes with comedy, love with hate and death with life. Both authors have quite the same similarities, but different attitudes and aspects of love. The love stories both sacrifice to be together, but different endings. William Shakespeare’s love story is influenced with tragedy and Spark’s end with a happily ever after story.
