Conscience
J. Galsworthy
Taggart sat up. The scoop under the ranger's fence, cannily selected for his sleeping-place, was overhung by branches, and the birds of Hyde Park were at matins already. His watch had gone the way of his other belongings during the last three months, and he could only assume from the meager light that it was but little after dawn. He was not grateful to the birds; he would be hungry long before a breakfast coming from he hardly knew where. But he listened to them with interest. This was the first night he had passed in the open, and, like all amateurs, he felt a kind of triumph at having achieved vagrancy in spite of the law, the ranger, and the dew. He was a Northumbrian, too, and his tail still up,' as he expressed it. Born in a town,
Taggart had not much country lore - at sparrows, blackbirds, thrushes, his knowledge stopped; but he enjoyed the bobbery the little beggars were kicking up, and though a trifle stiff perhaps, he felt fine'.
He lit his pipe, and almost at once his brain began to revolve the daily problem of how to get a job, and why he had lost the one he had.
Walking, three months ago, burly, upright, and secure and jolly, into the room of his chief at the officers of Conglomerated Journals Ltd. , he had been greeted with: Morning, Taggart. Georgie Grebe is to give us an article for the Lighthouse. He won't have time to write it, of course. I want you just to do us a column he could sign something Grebeish. I'm anxious for a feature of that sort every week now in the
Lighthouse; got half a dozen really good names. We must get it on its legs with the big
Public.
Taggart smiled. Georgia Grebe! The name was a household word - tophole idea to get him!
Did he ever write a line in his life, sir?
Don't suppose so - but you know the sort of thing he would write; he gets nothing for it but the Ad. The week…...

Letter to a Friend in Need

...Letter to a friend Letter to a friend Dear friend, I am very sorry for all of your misfortunes that you and your son have encountered so here are some answers to your question, I hope all of this information helps you and can guide you in the right direction. I understand they did not read you your Miranda rights; however police required reading you your rights if you get arrested, if this does not happen it does not mean your case will automatically be thrown out. If the police have great deal of evidence that you did commit a crime, the officer did not need to rely on your answers to any question to convict you of your crime. ("Miranda Warning", 2007-2010) I understand that the police have not questioned you yet; it is recommended that you don’t talk to the police because you are more likely to dig yourself a hole. You need to get yourself as much knowledge and just keep your mouth shut until you have legal counsel present. In Missouri this is a class A misdemeanor to falsify student residence forms or waivers. This is a state offense because each state has its own requirements to guide them. This is punishable by up to a year in prison or up to a thousand dollar fine. Missouri residency requirements do not pertain to homeless children. Please keep this in mind. I think it is in your best interest to have an attorney for this reason and to advise you on what steps you need to take upon getting your son back. Sometimes one can be appointed for you if you......

...It is said that a friend in need is a friend in deed. There may be many friends at the time of prosperity. But most of them desert at the time of adversity. We can examine the sincerity of a friend during our time of hardship and trouble. Only a sincere and faithful friend remains with us at the time of our trouble. All others leave us. It is very painful when our friends turn traitors. Money is an enemy of friendship. Everybody has an attraction for money. When lending or borrowing of money is done between two friends, there is great risk. Friendship may be affected. So it is wise for true friends to avoid monetary transaction. Vanity is another element which breaks friendship. Everybody has self-respect. When a person tries to criticise his friend, their friendship is affected. So friendship must be treated very delicately. Very often some hypocrites pretend to be friends. They are more dangerous than avowed enemies. By telling soft words they bring enormous ruin to us. A true friend never exploits. He rather surrenders. But at present, the meaning of friendship has changed. There are many fair-weathered friends. They terminate their friendly tie as soon as their interests are fulfilled. It is very difficult to find a true friend today. It is better to establish true friendship with either a dog or an elephant. Both these beasts will remain faithful to their human friends. Today, friendship between two persons is short-lived. Good friends exercise good influence...

...Crazy, Hilarious, Amazing, Cute, Friend: Kasey Mae Hayes Kasey Mae Hayes is not only my neighbor, but my best friend.

She is in my grade and although she's shorter than me, she's older, and I look up to her.

Whatever I tell her, stays with her. She never gives my secrets away. This year, especially, has been hard for me. Things at home haven't been the best. I told her what had been going on and she was there for me. She said she would never tell anyone and it wasn't her place to, it was my personal business. Another way we have a trustworthy relationship is we tell each other everything even when it has to do with others. She also is always there for me and always gives good advice and supports me in whatever I do. For example, I really got to know a certain boy this year and really cared for him but he hurt me so many times and I didn't deserve it. Kasey was there for me and she had my back even though the boy is one of her best friends too. By far, she is one of......

...Everyone needs good friends that can hold uphold good characteristics and Christian values. The characteristics of a good friend are honesty, love, service, loyalty, and receiving. •Honesty - Will you tell me the truth? The best gift that someone can give me is honest affirmation (don’t patronize me) and honest correction. (For more on this idea read this post). Not everyone has the “right” to speak into my life this way. This right is earned by the demonstration of the second characteristic… •Love – Will you love me when I’m at the top of my game? Will you love me when I’m in a slump? Love that transcends the “seasons” of life is the “stuff” that genuine friendship is made of! Some people call this “unconditional love.” •Service - Will you help me? Friends help one another. These last few weeks we’ve been blessed by our friends who have helped with meals, prep for the yard sale, words of encouragement, babysitting, etc. To all of you, we are grateful to have friends like you. Thank you for your help. •Loyalty - Will you “stick it out” with me? Will you defend me when I’m being attacked? Will you stick up for me when I’m not there? A friend is someone who would not have to change the conversation when you walk up. •Receiving - Will you receive from me? A friendship is only as strong as the neediest friend. If you’re always helping me but I do not help you, in time you will grow weary of me! BUT when you help me, and allow me to help you we strengthen one another and......

Friends

...Friends are people whom we turn to when our spirits need a lift. They are always by our side through thick and thin. They stand beside us even when our disposition is not perfectly right and will fight for us if we are oppressed. Therefore, it is clear that friends play a vital role in shaping who we are today. But what qualities exactly do we need to look for in a friend? A friend should always be caring towards you. He or she should take interest in your problems no matter how big or petty your problem may be. A friend should be able to sit beside you and encourage you to keep your chin up even when everyone else is against you. A friend’s empathy and lovingness will also replenish your worn-out soul and will make you realize how important a friend really is. Apart from that, a friend should be an honest person. An honest friend will dissipate any worries that he or she is lying towards you. A friend’s honesty will enable you to trust his or she’s opinion when it comes to telling you the truth about yourself. For example, an honest friend will remand you on your declining grades and will ask you to work harder while a dishonest friend will see it with a blind eye. Therefore, an overall improvement in yourself will be noticeable if you have an honest friend. Moreover, a friend should be generous both emotionally and knowledge wise. A friend who is generous ought to be able to connect with you and provide emotional support. He or she should also be generous when it comes......

...This friend I have is special, whilst young, intelligent and righteous. He lives with me since he was born, a pleasure to have all these years.The strength to face each day can sometimes be drawn from knowing him. When I watch him dribble around with the ball at the street soccer court then knocking it into the goal leaving the opponent frustrated there is unspeakable pride and joy emitting from the core of my heart. How this fine young man has grown from a novice soccer player just three years ago to a forwarder that instill fear to defenders who have to mark him. A elusive player who pass his opponent with ease and elegant he can match the highest standard of the land. The fond memories of the time we spend together still lingers in my mind. Bringing him to the movies, watching him fight with his sisters still sits in my mind. When he is younger, he never kept still and even climb out of the cradle that is meant to restrain him. That is when he is only two years old and that time nearly got a spanking from his grand mother. The coolest transformation is his hair. It uses to be always gelled and groomed into the "curry puff" look that is the trademark look that signifies his childhood days. Curry puff is a local snacks that has ultra ordinary puff when fried. Youth has robbed away that and reinstall a new image to befit the modern time. The "anime" type spike hairstyle is now the replacement. Skinny jeans with a smart tee shirts is the order of the day when he needs......

A Friend in Need

...The Work of Representation Stuart Hall Summarize by Jesse Tseng 1 Representation, meaning and language At first we have to know that: Representation is an essential part of the process by which meaning is produced and exchanged between members of a culture. It does involve the use of language, of signs and images which stand for or represent things. And surly it is not a simple or straightforward process. How this article exploring the concept of representation connect meaning and language to culture? We will be drawing a distinction between three different account or theories:the reflective, the intentional and the constructionist approaches to representation. Most of this text will be exploring the constructionist approach with two major variants or models of the constructionist approach, the semiotic approach- Ferdinand de Saussure and the discursive approach- Michel Foucault. But we have to answer the question first:what does the word representation really mean? 1.1 Making meaning, Representing things Representation is the production of the meaning of the concepts in our minds through language. There are two processes, two systems of representation. First, there is the system by which all sort of objects, people and events are correlated with a set of concepts or mental representations which we carry around in our heads.(like chair, table) Second, Language is therefore the second system of representation. (When we say......

A Friend in Need Is a Friend Indeed

...3. ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’. Describe how a friend helped you in a difficult time. A friend is someone who always be there for you during thick and thin, who always be our best listener and who will always help us from barking up the wrong tree. Without a friend, ones will feel alone and never know how to socialize with people around him or her. Everyone in this world needs friends as companion in their life. So do I. We can have a lot of friends but to find a true and loyal one is the hardest. I have a best friend and I think she is the best girl I have ever met, El. We were enrolled in the same school since we are 7 years old. We used to be strangers at first but as we were placed in the same class, we get closed to each other. Plus, we are deskmate. She is a kind-hearted person. This pretty Kelantanese girl used to be very down to earth to all people that she met. She lived in a small town, outskirts of Kota Bharu. She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Her father works as a pediatric specialist in one of the most well-known hospital in Kelantan. While her mom works as an English lecturer in Universiti Malaysia Kelantan. I was having a very difficult time when I was 15 years old. It was a calm and quiet night when I’m burning the midnight oil because the PMR was just around the corner. The residents around my housing area all asleep. It was only me and my pile of books. The clock on my pink room’s wall shown that the time was almost half......

...always told me to be careful when choosing your friends and remember that not everyone is your friend. There are three different kinds of “friends” in this life. I classify them according to how well I know them and how well they know me. We encounter each of them every day, whether it be at school, home, or through social media. First, there are the "social media friends" generally known as the person behind the computer screen. Next, there are "acquaintance friends" classmates or short-term friend. Lastly, we have "best friends" our true friends. Social media sites such as Instagram or twitter have “followers” who are people behind their cellphones liking your pictures, commenting on your facebook statuses, but you do not really know who they are. You do not really talk to that person in person, this are different social media friends. Secondly, friends I call "acquaintances." This is because they are closer than your Instagram followers or facebook friends, but they nowhere near as close as your best friend. Acquaintances are usually classmates who evolve into "friends" through social media or hanging out here and there. You typically know the acquaintances name, a little of their family history, and usually have several things in common. Lastly your best friend, you probably grew up together as children. They know everything about you. Just as you know everything about them. You consider them to be like family. "A true friend will see you through when others see that you......

Friends

...came into my life and made a big difference. When I was about to give up on life because of health problems and because I lost my sister from Sickle Cell, the most wonderful person walked right into my life. You see all she said was hello, and that goes along way. When i'm sad she's there, when i'm burdened down with problems she is there. Even though she doesnt know anything about music when i'm upset about a song, or if my choir is not sounding like I want them to sound she is there. So my definition of a friend is her. She epitimizes what a friend is suppose to be. Even though now we are more than friends she still has never left my side. We may argue because i'm so busy, and we may fight because sometimes I have to drive four or five hours just to play for a choir and drag her along, but she is there. Sometimes when i'm sitting in my office thinking, and worrying about something I just pick up the phone and it seems as if all of my problems go away. When she is in need of something she doesn’t even have to ask. Every weekend is special because now she is at LSU in Baton Rouge, so we take turns visiting each other every weekend. So I end by telling you a little story. A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs...

A Friend in Need Is a Friend Indeed

...A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed The proverb stands as a touchstone of true friendship. It states that only that person who helps us when we are in need or difficulty is a true friend. In our daily life we come across people who over a period of time become close to us. But we cannot be sure if they are true friends or just fair-weather friends. Many people develop contacts with influential people for their benefit. It will be a great mistake if one considers these apparently close people as friends. The test of true friendship is in time of difficulties.On the other hand, the fair-weather friends disappear in times of trails. They find excuses to distance themselves from us. But a true friend will always stick to a person when if that person is in deep trouble. He will be concerned about the welfare of a person when he considers as a friend. If need be, he will make every effort to help his friend overcome the difficult situation, instead of running away from him. As the saying goes, ‘prosperity makes friends and adversity tries them’. Take for example the friendship of Antonio and Bassanio in the Shakespearean play ‘The Merchant of Venice’. Antonio helps Bassanio even at the cost of losing his life- a pound of flesh. The Epics of India showcase timeless illustrations of true friendship. In the Ramayana, it is between Rama and Sugreva. In the Mahabharata, it is between Krishna and Kuchela; between Duryodhana and Karna. Such friendship stands the test of time.......
