Three Things to Live Life to the Fullest

Good Essays
From: Huck. To: The Ones I Love.
There are a few things I want to tell people about life. Most would say it is to live life to the fullest. In my eyes, there are three things that would help you live that way. They are to love your friends and respect them, believe in what you want to believe in, and the third is to do what you believe is right. Even though I do not always accomplish all of these things, I still believe in them and I hope that you will learn to follow these three basic concepts.

I enjoyed the first few days with him. This allowed me to be away from all of the rules of Miss Watson. It didn’t take long for things to change. “Then the old man got to cussing and cussed everything and everybody he could think of, and then cussed them all over again to make sure he hadn't skipped any, and after that he polished off with a kind of a general cuss all round, including a considerable parcel of people which he didn't know the names of, and so called them what's-his-name when he got to them, and went right along with his cussing.” (pg. 25) Because of this, I escaped and faked my death, convincing most people that I was dead. I did this because I believed it was the right thing to do.
Jim, who was a slave, escaped about the same time that I faked my death. We then decided to hide together. During this time, because of my love and respect for Jim, I honored Jim’s beliefs. When Jim started to explain the story of King Solomon and the mother and son, how wise Solomon was, I listened, but I still argued about my interpretation of the story, I eventually gave up. I could tell that Jim’s beliefs would not be changed by what I was saying. “I never seen such a nigger, if he got a notion in his head once, there warn’t no getting it out again.” (pg. 78) I knew I needed to

    “Begin at once to live and count each separate day as a separate life.” At times, it’s seemed as though life contains an endless supply of days. When I was younger, I thought this for sure. It didn’t matter how long I held a grudge, or how long I waited to do something I wanted—there would be an unlimited pool of other opportunities. At least that’s what I thought back then.
