"The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."
- Walter Bagehot

This is a quote that Walter Bagehot wrote. I think it is right because I have had a lot of experience with doing stuff people thought I couldn't do and it feels really good. It seems like you've just conquered that person's land in your heart. It seems like you've succeeded! However, it is wrong in a way because you don't have to do what others think you are expected to. You can go your own way and your own life. You are free and don't always have to be controlled by others with their thoughts. Doing what people think you can't can increase your self-confidence but not really caring about what others say is just a way of saying "I can go my own way and live my own life." Saying this doesn't mean that you're a coward, it just means you are free.

"Each person must live their life as a model for others."- Rosa Parks

There was a period of time when white people were racist against black people. This is a quote that Rosa Parks wrote during that time. I agree with Rosa Parks's quote because we have to show others by our actions that we are civilized and that we know what is wrong and what is right. To prove this, we always have to think of ourselves as being a mentor for others, that way, we could always be doing the right thing. However, it's important to be sure we're following the right people. What if we do the same things bad guys do because we are thinking that we are doing the right thing by following their example? In this case, we can't always use others as a model for our lives. Others may be doing the wrong thing and we shouldn't follow their actions. So, I kind of actually agree to both sides of the story.

"I say to the young ; 'Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively.'" -Eleanor Roosevalt 

Many people think of life as a journey of ups and downs, I think so too, but I also think that life is an adventure. I think that life is an adventure because sometimes you fall, and after you fall, you stand back up. Life is to be enjoyed, though you also have to think about your future. I think that having a successful life means having a career that you like, being able to help others with the skills you have for your career, and making others smile because you helped them.
