• If my history teacher says no quotes, use direct evidence from the source. Does he mean to paraphrase everything?

    I'm confused because usually teachers want quotes from credible sources to support the claim. How do you write an essay without quotes?

  • Am I dumb for "waiting for the reaper" as they say?

    I don't have any goals, I'm jobless, never been to college, dropped out of school, never got my dl, never really achieved anything. It doesn't really bother me, I enjoy my life. I still make money, I've probably made more bad decisions than most people but I enjoy what I have. I heard a quote that... show more
    I don't have any goals, I'm jobless, never been to college, dropped out of school, never got my dl, never really achieved anything. It doesn't really bother me, I enjoy my life. I still make money, I've probably made more bad decisions than most people but I enjoy what I have. I heard a quote that said if you don't try bettering yourself then you're "just waiting for the reaper" does that mean I'm dumb?

  • What does "to be rooted" in the following quote mean?

    Best answer: She says that every human being needs to have multiple roots.

    Best answer: She says that every human being needs to have multiple roots. As a tree is rooted to the earth, giving it stability and strength, so people need to be rooted in several things--in a community, a tradition, a people, a sense of self. We are automatically rooted in many things just by birth--for example, in our family or our country. But when the State (the government or ruling powers, as opposed to our land and people) dictates the values of humans, and people are attached to identities bought by money, this contributes to the uprootedness and alienation of the soul in the modern age. A society corrupted by wealth and power cannot provide the roots that people need. This is what Weil is talking about. You need to look for the whole passage to understand her meaning.
    My thoughts: When people get uprooted from the natural things that give them identity and stability--like war refugees--it is traumatic. A deeper rooting may come through spiritual and moral values that are developed over time. When you are rooted in a strong inner connection to purpose, a sense of meaning, and faith, then being uprooted from a geographical place or even particular people may not be as traumatic.
