    What Are Some Names With An ‘o’ In It? I’d like the ‘o’ to be pronounced so for example I don’t want suggestions like Violet or Caolán.

    Christians, Could You Explain How You ‘handle’ Your Daily Life? Hi Christians,

    This is about structure, about how to approach life.
    One writer, S. Covey (and I think others also), explain the
    differences in how people deal with their life.

    This question is about ….how do you approach your life having worshipped,
    prayed, and committed your life to God?

    What do you see as really important in your life in terms of how you handle your life?

    S. Covey explained different ‘life-styles’ people have, and pointed out
    those that work well.

    There were keys in what was put, and I think the bible points to this
    as well, if we meditate on the meaning of the bible in these areas.

    How we handle our lives will determine how our lives outwork,
    how things go ‘down the road’.

    God gave us brains to use, (regardless of atheist opinions).

    • Curator says:

      In a scripture often quoted in our church it says, “Adam fell that men might be, and men are that they might have joy.” Finding joy in daily life is one way I stay happy from day to day. Even simple little things can be great fun. The main focus of my life is Christ, but that focus turns outward in service and love toward others.

      Check out the link below, my friend from church wrote a blog post on how to enjoy life:

    Is This Story Understandable? In English I had to write a story using specific vocabulary words. However, my teacher disapproves of anything that is considered even a little school-inappropriate. Therefore, I tried to avoid any words that might be inappropriate, but I’m not sure my story makes sense now. Can someone please tell me if it does? (Also, I’m aware of how awful the writing is. If you have any corrections you want to make or comments, please tell me.)

    The girl needed to visit the boy’s house, so she waited until the end of the week, when she knew his parents would be out. He had given her a key before he passed in case of emergencies, and the girl let herself in silently. The neighbors hadn’t even glanced speculatively at her when she did; they were used to her being around.
    The dank smell of ashes could be smelled from the entrance of the house, all the way from where they sat in a jar above the fireplace. The essence of the boy was everywhere, from the kitchen table to the bathroom closets, but it was especially strong at his bedroom. It was a small little place, cluttered with coveys of picture frames.
    The girl had come to understand, to see what exactly had been the bulwark against his happiness. He had always had the semblance of joy and delight. There was a certain light to him, a kind of incandescence that could not be taken away. But it was all a mask; he had never been as lucent as he appeared, and he eventually became a master at feinting bliss. She’d never even considered he would do what he did, he was just too judicious. He wasn’t indigent at all; in fact, he was rather wealthy, and his parents were paid above average for a common household. She had writhed whenever he took her hand in public, but she had secretly liked it. Now she regretted it, but it was too late. By his own hand, the boy’s pain had already subsided.

    (The story was about a girl going into a boy’s house. The boy had committed suicide, and she’s trying to figure out why. He appeared very happy, but instead was depressed. If you couldn’t figure that out, please tell me.)

    • Curator says:

      First off, it feels a doesn’t feel like a real story, if feels like you’re telling us what happened. I think the easiest way you can fix that is to give these people names.

      As for the vocab use and clarity, the part about the key he ‘passed in case of emergencies’ doesn’t make sense. I don’t understand what you mean when you say ‘passed.

      Another that doesn’t make sense is the word ‘convey’. You have it kind of right. You might want to change it to ‘cluttered with picture frames that conveyed ___.”

      Once you get into the 3rd paragraph you’re really losing me. The word bulwark should be used later, when actually describing what is preventing his happiness. I like how you used incandescent, lucent, and feinting, but it’s a bit muddled. I think you need to explain further what the boy did and slowly bring those words in. It seems like you used as many as you could in every sentence.

      Good luck 🙂

  • C.T.W says:

    Can You Approve These Sentences? For my English homework, I have to create sentences with specific vocab words and put them together to create a story. Can you make sure these sentences make sense, and correct them if they don’t? (If the entire sentence just won’t work, even with changes, then that’s fine.)

    I will put the vocab word in caps. Take note that some of these words are used metaphorically.

    The neighbors hadn’t even looked SPECULATIVELY at her when she entered the house.

    The DANK smell of ashes could be smelled from the front of the house.

    The ESSENCE of him was everywhere.

    It was a small room, cluttered with a COVEY of picture frames.

    What was the BULWARK against his happiness?

    There was a certain INCANDESCENCE to him.

    He had always had the SEMBLANCE of joy.

    He had never been as LUCENT as he appeared.

    He eventually became a master at FEINTING bliss.

    He wasn’t INDIGENT at all; in fact, he was rather wealthy.

    • Curator says:

      You have permitted her to enter “your circle of trust”, excluding all others. Perhaps you felt that your trust in others had been betrayed in the past, so you created a psychological defence mechanism; what Pink Floyd describe as: “building the wall”.

      Realise that there are different types of trust, and levels within them; for example, we trust other drivers with our lives to a fair degree, but how about lending money, and to whom?

      A clinical psychologist can help by performing “trust exercises” with you. Google: “clinical psychologists; (your location)”

      Hypnosis is merely a heightened state of suggestibility, in which you are better able to communicate with your subconscious mind; view about what it is, and isn’t.

      85% of people are suggestible to some degree; 15% – 20% highly so, and 15% – 20% aren’t much at all, so you could either preferably seek professional hypnotherapy, or, if not an option, has: Trust Again.

      Man is a knot into which relationships are tied. ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

      There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found.
      While journeying east and west –
      The only folks we really wound,
      Are those we love the best.
      We flatter those we scarcely know,
      We please the fleeting guest,
      And deal full many a thoughtless blow
      To those who love us best. ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

      You can’t stop loving or wanting to love because when its right, it’s the best thing in the world. When you’re in a relationship and it’s good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete. ~ Keith Sweat

      Assumptions are the termites of relationships. ~ Henry Winkler

      Our greatest joy and our greatest pain comes in our relationships with others. ~ Stephen R. Covey

      Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last – are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with. ~ Gillian Anderson

      Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you. The one who turns to his friends and says, “that’s her”.

      The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands.

      Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~ Dinah Craik

      Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed. ~ Albert Einstein

      Don’t rush into any kind of relationship. Work on yourself. Feel yourself, experience yourself and love yourself. Do this first and you will soon attract that special loving other. ~ Russ Von Hoelscher

      Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take. ~ Anthony Robbins

      A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself — to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart. ~ Leo F. Buscaglia

      It is only when we no longer compulsively need someone that we can have a real relationship with them. ~ Anthony Storr

      How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~ Annie (the movie)

      Having someone wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night is a very old human need. ~ Margaret Mead

      When a man loves a woman, periodically he needs to pull away before he can get closer. ~ John Gray

      You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with. ~ Wayne W. Dyer

      First dates are awkward, first kisses are heavenly, first love is irreplaceable and first heartbreaks are unforgettable.

      Love me when I least deserve it, because that is when I really need it. ~ Swedish Proverb

    What Does Ode To Duty (William Wordsworth) Mean? I need this Ode analyzed ASAP. I have a paper due on wednesday but I have no idea what it even means! Can someone give me a brief idea, stanza by stanza?

    William Wordsworth. 1770–1850

    Ode to Duty

    STERN Daughter of the Voice of God!
    O Duty! if that name thou love,
    Who art a light to guide, a rod
    To check the erring and reprove;
    Thou, who art victory and law 5
    When empty terrors overawe;
    From vain temptations dost set free;
    And calm’st the weary strife of frail humanity!

    There are who ask not if thine eye
    Be on them; who, in love and truth, 10
    Where no misgiving is, rely
    Upon the genial sense of youth:
    Glad hearts! without reproach or blot;
    Who do thy work, and know it not:
    O, if through confidence misplaced 15
    They fail, thy saving arms, dread Power! around them cast.

    Serene will be our days and bright,
    And happy will our nature be,
    When love is an unerring light,
    And joy its own security. 20
    And they a blissful course may hold
    Even now, who, not unwisely bold,
    Live in the spirit of this creed;
    Yet seek thy firm support, according to their need.

    I, loving freedom, and untried; 25
    No sport of every random gust,
    Yet being to myself a guide,
    Too blindly have reposed my trust:
    And oft, when in my heart was heard
    Thy timely mandate, I deferr’d 30
    The task, in smoother walks to stray;
    But thee I now would serve more strictly, if I may.

    Through no disturbance of my soul,
    Or strong compunction in me wrought,
    I supplicate for thy control; 35
    But in the quietness of thought.
    Me this uncharter’d freedom tires;
    I feel the weight of chance-desires;
    My hopes no more must change their name,
    I long for a repose that ever is the same. 40

    Yet not the less would I throughout
    Still act according to the voice
    Of my own wish; and feel past doubt
    That my submissiveness was choice:
    Not seeking in the school of pride 45
    For ‘precepts over dignified,’
    Denial and restraint I prize
    No farther than they breed a second Will more wise.

    Stern Lawgiver! yet thou dost wear
    The Godhead’s most benignant grace; 50
    Nor know we anything so fair
    As is the smile upon thy face:
    Flowers laugh before thee on their beds,
    And fragrance in thy footing treads;
    Thou dost preserve the stars from wrong; 55
    And the most ancient heavens, through Thee, are fresh and strong.

    To humbler functions, awful Power!
    I call thee: I myself commend
    Unto thy guidance from this hour;
    O, let my weakness have an end! 60
    Give unto me, made lowly wise,
    The spirit of self-sacrifice;
    The confidence of reason give;
    And in the light of truth thy bondman let me live!

    • Curator says:

      The poet has tried to covey that Duty is like the light that guides us, like a rod that checks us from making mistakes.He has implored duty to watch over him because he is tired of living a life which is controlled by his impulses.He now seeks peace and enlightenment.He calls duty the voice of God that is our conscience, awful power and a stern law giver.Though duty is strict she carries a Godly face with a benignant expression and a beautiful smile upon her face.
