  • The past - 393 Words
     Why the past should not be glorified We should not preserve the past, we should look to the future. We are living in the modern era, where people are practical and realistic, optimistic that new inventions and discoveries will improve their lives. For most, it would be plain foolishness if one were to be so mindful about the past, when instead, one should invest his time and thought into building a better and more meaningful life in the future. Ironically, in the midst of their “pragmatic”...

  • The Importance of the Past - 353 Words
    When I was 3 years old I remember my mother taking me to day-care for the first time in my life. I was scared and it was very hard for me to make friends. There I understood for first time the meaning of rather having one or two good friends than to have many of them and none of them really cherishing your friendship. That was an opinion I stuck to since and it pretty much had an effect on every one of my relationships. Every single memory and experience has an impact on our lives and builds up...

  • Compare and Contrast Past and Present
    The past and the present are two verb tenses that are very familiar and heavily used when describing something from our childhood, or our plans for when we grown up. The past is constant and the future is a variable. We can remember our past and dream about our futures.

    Human Society is a long period of building and developing. From the time man lived in dank caves to nowadays when he lives in such a modern life with a lot of excellent facilities.

    Some people claim that the living in the present can actually cause more harm than good. They say that in order to lead a productive and profitable life, one must study both the past and the future, the present is only a stepping stone. I think that this is quite the opposite.

    The Past, Present, and a Condemned Future “The past is the present, isn’t it? It’s the future too. We all try to lie out of that but life won’t let us”(882). The character of Mary Tyrone declares this quote and poses an ominous thought; the state of time is merely irrelevant in life.

    1. This poem is a confessional one, involving the recollection of past times of happiness and present times of memory and sadness. The concluding image, of the wood waiting somewhere to be burnt, is especially strong and jarring, for it shows a note of bitterness amidst the speaker’s sadness. The visual imagery of the poem combines the manufactured (the two different sets of steps, the wood of the first) and the natural (dew, quiet, the absence of birds, crickets, falling leaves, a breeze).

    Some people think the past is valuable for those of us living in the present, but some people don¡¦t. I disagree with the statement because historic events always teach us lessons. Another reason is we can acquire knowledge from the past. Historic events always teach us lessons. For example, in the past, people use violent methods to solve problems.

    People’s lifestyles have improved and the way parents take care of their children has changed, too. In my opinion, parents today do not pay as much attention to their children as parents did in the past. Firstly, the increasing economic pressure has somehow forced both parents to work. In the past, the responsibility of one of the parents was to make money, while the other would take care of the children all the time.
