Love has been glorified by so many poets and writers… It has been researched by so many scientists… It seems that at present it should be easy to define this phenomenon, yet it is as complicated as ever. Does it mean that our predecessors were all wrong? It only means that love is very versatile and may be perceived differently.
In my opinion love is tinted in a multitude of colours. Red stands for passionate love. It is physical attraction and yearning to be closer to a particular person. Red gives way to pink when tenderness comes into foreground. You feel tenderness when you look at your beloved near and want to take care of them and protect them from the problems of the outside world. Love acquires blue colour, when your second half is away and you miss him or her. It changes into green when you suffer from pangs of jealousy and paints your world black when your heart is broken. As you see, love is connected with as many emotions as there are shades in the palette.
Since our childhood parents have been encouraging us to do our best in whatever activity we try out. We are taught that excellence and leadership are synonyms to success. Being a leader, undoubtedly, goes hand in hand with a variety of bonuses, but is it really all cakes and ale?
On the one hand, being a leader is exciting because of the prestige and power, not to mention, the financial side. If we talk about leaders on a large scale, i.e. heads of the countries, they are able to influence lives of millions of people and change them for the good. The mere thought about it gives you enormous sense of achievement. Moreover, being a leader can help you to go down in history. The decisions you take will remain forever in history books and in people’s memory.
Over the past few decades Internet has become part and parcel of our lives to such an extent that absence of internet connection drives us crazy and is perceived as one of the major evils. However, people are starting to wonder if such a dependence on the worldwide web is good for us. It is time for us to scrutinise the effects that this technological breakthrough has on our lives.
One of the greatest benefits of the Internet is an easy access to information. It has become an indispensable source of any kind of data that you may need. Either if you are doing research for your thesis or you are eager to read the reviews of the latest blockbusters, you will find a web page that will quench your thirst for knowledge in a “mouse-click”. At the same time, there is very little control over the quality of information online. Consequently, it has become a breeding ground for various scams and sensationalism.
For many millennia people have been asking themselves what the happiness is, but they still cannot find the right answer for this question. It happens probably because opinions differ and happiness can hardly mean the same to everybody.
To my mind happiness is a special state of mind and soul which paints life of a person in bright colours. You can neither buy happiness, nor sell it, but nevertheless one can share it with you. I believe that it depends upon us whether we feel happy or not. You’ve certainly noticed that some people are always dissatisfied with everything that happens in their everyday life – I mean their constant grumbling about problems and behavior of other people; facial expression of such people always reveals them: they are usually louring and gloomy.
