A Psalm Of Life and The tide rises,the tide falls 

"A Psalm of Life" carries a message of hope and encouragement. It encourages people to live their lives to the fullest, using the short time we have here on Earth as a gift. The poem is a message to future generations to find work and action that gives them purpose and passion.

Death is literally everywhere in "The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls." The poem takes place at twilight (the death of the day), a traveler is seen leaving the shore for thelast time (he is dead by the end of the poem), and the speaker keeps telling us that, while the tide rises, it also falls (in a sense, it dies).

A Psalm of Life" carries a message of hope and encouragement; it basically says that although life is so short and so temporary, the fact that we do eventually die doesn't matter that much, because we can still live life to its fullest.

The young man, speaking from his "heart," refuses to accept that life is “an empty dream” or that the soul is dead.

A Psalm of life

Instead, he says that life is indeed real and true and that death is not the goal of life; the soul lives on and does not turn to dust. We are meant to act and go beyond mere sorrow or happiness.Even though we are brave, though, we still move towards death. Thus, we must seize the life we have and be heroic, be more than dumb beasts. We ought to be wary of the past and the future, and instead live and act within the present.
When we look at the lives of great men we can see that it is possible to live with meaning and that when we depart, we leave our “footprints on the sands of time.” It is possible that some other person who is toiling mournfully may see our footprints and take heart. Knowing this, we should be hopeful, prepared for anything; we should endeavor to achieve and pursue, as well as “learn to labor and to wait.”

The tide rises,The tide falls

This poem describes a seaside scene. The tide rises, and the tide falls. It's twilight, a bird is calling, and a traveler is leaving the shore, heading for a nearby town. Now it's dark, the sea is calling, and the waves erase the traveler's footprints from the shore. Despite this gloomy perspective, the dawn does come again. There are signs of life everywhere. Horses are ready and rearing to go; a hostler is calling out. Sure, the traveler will never return to the shore (because, you know, he's dead), but the tide rises again, and then… well, the tide falls.

Homework #4

The Devil And Tom Walker

The devil and Tom Walker is a short story by Washington Irving that first appeared in his 1824 collection Tales of a traveller as part of the "Money-Diggers" section. The story is very similar to the German legend of Faust.

VALUES:Trustworthiness and Thankfulness

For me these values ​​are not at all represented in the story since none of the main characters had these qualities, rather I think they stand out for the lack of these.
First we have Tom Walker who is a person too miserable in my opinion since he is never satisfied with anything,then there is the wife who is just as miserable as Tom.They were so miserly that they even conspired to cheat each other.And last but not least is the devil who obviously it was not someone to trust,and it does not represent any good value.
There are very clear examples in the history when Tom is unthankful,like when he complains about the things he have and most of the things about his life including his wife.

Although most of the relevant characters in the story do not possess these qualities, there are some groups that do, such as the Indians, who were kind to Tom even when it was obvious that he was not a person to trust because he was always lonely and he looked dissatisfied.

"The Devil and Tom Walker" ends when Tom is shouting at his customer, whom he's about to ruin financially to make a profit for himself, even though they are supposed to be friends. When this customer begs for help and points out how much money Tom has already made from him, Tom shouts this:"The devil take me," said he, "if I have made a farthing!"

So EVEN at the end Tom showed everyone the kind of person he was

Bryans Legacy

More than 100 years before the beginning of history in an alternate world, demoniac humanoid creatures called "demons" suddenly appeared and almost annihilated humanity, devouring it without remorse or reason, completely ignoring other wild animals. What remains of humanity now resides within three huge walls over 50 meters high. The outermost wall is known as the Soledad wall, the middle one as the Chinita wall, and the innermost wall is called the Murillo wall. Within these walls, humanity has lived in an uneasy peace for a hundred years to the point where many people have grown up without having seen a demon. All this changes when, one day, a 60-meter demon appears mysteriously after lightning strikes and breaks the outer wall of the Bryan district, a city located in Soledads wall, allowing the smaller demons to invade the district, as well as an armored demon destroys the door of Soledads wall, forcing humanity to leave the earth between the walls of Soledad and Chinita, evacuating the remaining population to the inner districts, causing such affluence agitation and hunger.
