Love beautiful violet. People are out on the street in the good weather, and they are all happy. The young man is walking down the street and an old lady who pushes two bags in an old pram, yells at him. "Hey beautiful”. The young man welcomes back, and she thinks that he is in love. She gets happy and nostalgic, while she thinks that all can be beautiful such a spring evening, when they are on their way to the only one. The young man goes over the Sixty-third Street and passes a handcart filled with many fragrant flowers. It is an old man who is selling flowers, and right now he eats a pretzel. He has a radio, where news can be heard, but nobody listens to it. The news is that a hammer killer is on the loose and that an unidentified woman has been fished up from the East River. Otherwise, it is about Vietnam, a jury error in relation to a heroin boss and a Russian nuclear test. The young man hesitates, as he marks with his hand in his jacket pocket. Here he looks surprised, lonely and devastated, but quickly turns back to smile. He returns to the flower wagon, to buy flowers that he may surprise Norma with. Flower vendor is influenced by the young man's smile, and he remembers how it was like to be in love. The Flower vendor and the young man is talking cheerfully about flowers and prices, and the old man gives the young people advice in choosing flowers for the young man's beloved. It ends with two red, two yellow and two white tea roses. They are wrapped. The vendor tells......

You really know you love someone when all you want is for them to be happy, even if that means that you are not a part of it. 3. Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you love has no idea what so ever. 4. The worst way to miss someone is when they are right beside you and yet you know you can never have them. 5. I love him but I cannot show it, want him but he cannot know it, need him but I know it'll never be, if only he needed me. 6. I get the best feeling in the world when you say hi to me, or even smile, because I know even if just for a second, I crossed your mind. 7. I wonder, what I could Do or say to make him like me.

Live on

...“Live On” You, little one who cries every day and dreams without a smile every night, hear me out and don’t lose yourself. Do not give up because, to live on, you have to fight. Small yet big girl, stop crying every wrong done you. Focus on what you do and who you are. Realize already you are hurting others too. See you neglect the friends you don’t know you have, though about that you truly don’t have a clue. Defenseless girl, take off your grey and wet blindfold. Notice the hands that are trying to reach you for you to hold. It is for you that they are trying so hard, and the distance between you and them is not a yard. Confused girl, perhaps it is unfair to you. You are just a kid, but you already feel like this. You feel misunderstood; you feel unnecessary. You think you’re falling into an abyss. You feel you are incompetent at expressing yourself. You think you’ve for too long been amiss. You question life; you cannot understand its meaning. You don’t know you’re too young to know of what life consists. You don’t know what to think of yourself; you question your existence. You are so weary and frustrated at how your flow of tears persists! However, not all is sorrow; not everything is aching sadness. Behind the loneliness you obsess about, there is also bliss. You can become strong. You can find happiness. You can live! But for that to be, you first have to believe your will exists. Blind girl, God and many others love you so......

...Love is a beautiful thing. It makes people happy. It can change a person, and show someone things that they never knew about themselves. It lifts one up, knowing there is always someone who will stand by their side through anything. It brings people together, and makes the world a better place. Some people may disagree; they might think love is just a fantasy. Either way, it is a fantasy that everyone deserves to dream of and experience in all its glory, whether straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. However, not all people are so accepting of love when it is not in the form that they are familiar with, or is not demonstrated in ways that they think are proper. This can be easily seen in society’s treatment of non-heterosexuals, especially in the cases of marriage laws, bullying by teens and young adults, and general homophobic attitudes in our culture. It is important that these situations be changed so that each and every person has the same rights and is not harshly and wrongly judged because of the sex of the person that they love. When thinking of the word “marriage,” what comes to mind? Is it long white dresses and dapper tuxedos, or a towering cake and beautiful flowers? Do sappy love songs and the first dance come to mind? Some imagine a fairytale come true, with a horse and carriage whisking the happy couple away from the church in which they nervously exchanged vows? No matter what comes to mind, most people can agree that marriage is happy, and......

...depiction of such societal frustrations, often choosing to downplay authority figures while indulging melodramatics. Favorable genres such as the seasonal horror and persistent gangster flicks, consistently contain themes of an inauthentic authorial agency that subverts social authority. Whilst I was watching, I realized that I find myself choked into a roller coaster ride of emotions - made me - at first - sob a bit and then eventually cried a river as I can't hold the gravity of emotions finding its way to burst out from my chest while equally giving me a laugh out loud moments due to its hilarious scenes. It's both a humorous and heart-wrenching film that shows how cruel and unfair a society can be to those who are intellectually impaired or should I say mentally handicapped. Miracle In Cell No. 7 is a heartwarming movie that presents a combo of comedy and melodrama about a mentally challenged father (Yong Gu) who loves his daughter (Ye Sung) so much - the former was wrongfully accused of a crime and was sent into prison. Later, Ye Sung studied law and works to prove her father's innocence. Worth -watching - this film really deserves recognition not only in Korea, but also in other countries as well. I'm hoping that it gains a pass to be shown in our country as it is something everyone should watch and appreciate....

Love Everyone tries to find it. Others get lucky and live happily ever after; others get it wrong on the first try and give up; still others fail, but never stop trying; but many don't find it at all. Love. The stuff that poets write about in their pieces that we don't understand, only that it's sometimes tragic, and still it makes the world go 'round. For some it's the reason they live, for others, the cause of death. Could there be anything else in the world that could be as vivacious a party on full swing but at the same time lethal as a double-edged sword? Love is passing little notes that ask if you two could talk after school, just for a little while, if you're not too busy? And love is saying sorry, you have someting else to do, but deep inside the butterflies in your stomach are swarming like wasps closing in for the kill. But love is asking again and again and again and again, and everytime it feels like the butterflies are dancing to some rock and roll tune. Love is finally exchanging numbers and start learning things about each other; it's inviting that person to your hometown during the weekend and getting shocked because the invitation is actually taken seriously, and you laugh and say that was just a joke, but maybe some other time. Love is seeing each other on the hallways, on the sidewalks, in class, but not stopping even just to say hi, because you're afraid your friends might tease you. But love is sending that person a message at the end of......

...Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog by Taylor Mali On cold winter nights, love is warm. It lies between you and lives and breathes and makes funny noises. Love can wake you up all hours of the night with its needs. Love can give you a sense of security: When you’re walking down the street late at night and you have a leash on love, ain’t no one gonna mess with you. Love needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy. Love does not like being left alone for long. But come home and love is always happy to see you. Love may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life, but you can never be mad at love for long. Love leaves you little surprises here and there. Love makes messes. Sometimes you just want to get love fixed. Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper and swat love on the nose, But then love gives you big kisses, And you laugh at the little things. Sometimes love just wants to play. Running you around the block, leaving you panting. It pulls you in several different directions at once, or winds around and around you, until you’re all wound up and can’t move. And love brings you together. People who have nothing in common but love stop and talk and greet each other on the street. Most importantly, love needs love, and lots of it. And in return, love loves you and loves you and never stops. ...

'Dapper Laughs' Assembly

...Dapper Laughs As I begin this assembly, I must apologise to the house as a whole. This assembly does not have any motivational sporting or academic message, and unforgivably does not intertwine with current sporting events – with no reference to the staggering form of Wycombe Wanderers this season. So, as I have rudely broken this previously unmentioned tradition of Ridley House assembly, I can only reassure you that all shall be returned to normality next week. From Private Walker in Dad’s Army to Mickey Pearce in Only Fools and Horses, encompassing Gaz from Geordie Shore, Jay from The Inbetweeners, Mark Wright from TOWIE, and many more, audiences have habitually been entertained by the “woman-hungry geezer” character of popular culture. This product of 21st century Britain, characterised by stand alone augmented biceps, dressed usually in some form of vest top with ‘Hype.’ or ‘Ibiza’ scrawled across its front, with a haircut suspiciously similar to my own, these dubious alpha-males frequent most urban centres of the UK. But lads will be lads. Compared to similar figures of the past, there’s a moment in the opening credits of Happy Days where the Fonz approaches a mirror to perfect his quiff, then realises he is, in fact, already staring at the vision of perfection. Though such actions of the Fonz are ridiculous and ego-driven, they are loveable and above all – harmless. However, his perception that the opposite sex were mainly non-thinking vessels put on earth as future...

...TO MY FIRST LOVE I can’t say that I loved you from the moment that we met. I can’t say that we were meant to be or that after years of separation we’ll finally break the walls that separate us and be one once more. I can’t say that in the time we’ve been apart I’ve become a better person, better for you….better for us. If I said anything along these lines it would have been a lie. There’s much I want to tell you and a lot that I know I shouldn’t. Let’s start at the beginning: I remember when we met. You were one of the popular people. I was not. Everyday prior to our meeting I was nothing more than a background image on a less-than-boring wall. But for some reason on this day you chose to acknowledge me. On this day you chose to talk to me. I’ll probably never know why, or care why for that matter, but you did and since then my life has never been the same. As if you pulled me into light from the dark, or as though you created something out of nothing I had existence. I had meaning in my life. And that meaning was you. I would wake up every morning just to see you smile. I would miss my bus on purpose just to spend a few extra moments in your presence. I would shed the few nickels and dimes I had to give you whatever happiness money could buy. I would have given you the earth, the moon and even the sun if it so pleased you. I would have done it all. When you’re young everyone tells you to shoot for the stars, but no one tells you how dangerous ambition can be. No......

Compare 'Love That Doth Reign and Live Within My Though' by Henry Howard to 'Y Love Is Like to Ice' by Edmund Spenser

...Compare ‘Love that doth reign and live within my thought’ to ‘My Love is like to ice’ in terms of form, structure and language Both writers use the sonnet form to explore the feeling of unrequited love. They both use powerful imagery in order to express the complexity of love and other complex emotions. They both reach similar conclusions in regards to realising that their love isn’t returned by the object of their affection. However, Spenser seems to be more assured and accepting of this fact because he ends his sonnet with a perfect rhyme. On the contrary, Howard ends his poem with an incomplete rhyme, suggesting that he is less assured and that love is not perfect and harmonious. Both Howard in his poem “Love that doth reign and live within my thought”, and Spenser in “My love is like to ice” use the sonnet form in order to express their feelings of unrequited love and love as being powerful. This poetic form allows both poets to emphasise change in emotion throughout the poem and end with a concluding couplet, to present the poets views on unrequited love. Spencer emphasises the power of love straight from the outset in the title “Love that doth reign and live within my thought”. In addition, in “Love is like is presents a negative perception of love and suggests that love is an overpowering force that has the capability of taking over the speakers thoughts. by presenting a straight from the outset title “live within my thought” Both poets begin their sonnet by......

...As computer and internet technologies have continued to grow and improve, they have become an integral part of the everyday lives of those that have access to the technology. Likewise, the technology is a valuable resource in the workplace and most companies provide computers, internet access, and email accounts in order to increase productivity. This valuable tool can also be a powerful distraction, however. These distractions often lead to inappropriate usage of the tools provided by the employer. “In a 2002 study by the Computer Security Institute, 78% of polled enterprises reported employee abuse of Internet access privileges by workers, including downloading pirated software or pornography, shopping on the Internet, and inappropriate use of email systems” (E-Monitoring in the Workplace 2006). This shows the magnitude of the problem that is facing many of today’s employers. The best way to prevent these problems is to provide a clearly stated online policy and to monitor computer mediated communication (CMC). CMC monitoring is the employer’s right and helps to ensure the protection of the company in addition to providing a valuable means to evaluating and improving employee behavior. A common argument against the use of CMC monitoring systems is that it is unethical and violates employees’ constitutional right to privacy. The fact of the matter is, however, that the employees, provided with computers, online access and email addresses by the employer, have no rights to...

...not here. I love you not because you love me but because you taught me everything I never knew existed before. 0103. When you leave, remember the place where you left me cause I’ll still be there waiting for you. But if you go back and I’m no longer there, it means that I love you too much so I went to search for you.  0104. It’s a risk having you cause it’s like stealing an angel from heaven. If I’d be punished for that, I’d rather accept it than give you back cause I know that I’d never have another you in my life again.  0105. I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance, a church filled with flowers and friends.

No why’s, no how’s, no but’s, no promises. Just stay. It’s more than enough.  0107. I’m not sure what I am to you and what we are right now but what really matters is you’re so damn special to me and I mean my life only for you.

I’m gonna be there on your wedding day and I’m gonna sit beside you while saying the words, “Yes, Father. I do.”  0109. Written with a pen, sealed with a kiss. If you love me, please answer you did.

...narrator to draw him a sheep. The narrator obliges, and the two become friends. The pilot learns that the little prince comes from a small planet that the little prince calls Asteroid 325 but that people on Earth call Asteroid B-612. The little prince took great care of this planet, preventing any bad seeds from growing and making sure it was never overrun by baobab trees. One day, a mysterious rose sprouted on the planet and the little prince fell in love with it. But when he caught the rose in a lie one day, he decided that he could not trust her anymore. He grew lonely and decided to leave. Despite a last-minute reconciliation with the rose, the prince set out to explore other planets and cure his loneliness. While journeying, the narrator tells us, the little prince passes by neighboring asteroids and encounters for the first time the strange, narrow-minded world of grown-ups. On the first six planets the little prince visits, he meets a king, a vain man, a drunkard, a businessman, a lamplighter, and a geographer, all of whom live alone and are overly consumed by their chosen occupations. Such strange behavior both amuses and perturbs the little prince. He does not understand their need to order people around, to be admired, and to own everything. With the exception of the lamplighter, whose dogged faithfulness he admires, the little prince does not think much of the adults he visits, and he does not learn anything useful. However, he learns from the geographer that......

...who slaps him one hundred times. He walks around again and a car hits him. He is taken to the hospital but there was an earthquake and the hospital collapsed. He walks out of the ruins and goes to school. Everybody is scared of him and kicks his whatever. He screams in pain and goes to the art room. There, he commits suicide and dies." I grinned. This should be enough. I looked around. He leaves early so he must be at home by now. Mwahahahaha! He shall meet his death. Anyway, is this notebook for real? Will he really die? I remembered how he mocked me awhile ago. I scowled. Well it's not like I care if he dies right? I went back to my house and relaxed. The next day would be so amazing. No Allen-kun here and no Allen-kun there. I can live freely! Ah! The notebook! I grabbed my bag and was shocked to find the notebook missing. I almost tore the bag to shreds in order to find it but I couldn't. What happened to it? I'm sure I placed it inside my bag..but it's not there. Where is it? The next day, I went to school with a smile on my face but what I encountered was an empty school. I walked back a few steps to look at the sign again. "Hakuo Academy”. Seems like the right school. I looked at my watch. It's almost time for classes. It isn't a holiday either. Why is the school so vacant? I slowly paced down the hallways. I stopped near the stairs. There was a red liquid on the wall, five lines and some handprints. It seemed like someone had it on his hands and he walked......
