Louisa May Alcott's Analysis

Superior Essays
The universe; at first glance, it may seem so simple, but in reality, it is an intricate ideology. This bigger-than-life place inhabits, more or less, an astonishing one hundred billion galaxies! Of all of these galaxies, there is the beautiful and spirally Milky Way Galaxy, where if someone would look hard enough, may see our solar system. Out of all nine planets, there is the Planet Earth, and out of all seven billion people there are on Earth, there is you. Many people may not know, but everyone obtains a purpose in life. It may be as little as being successful in a job, or something as big as changing the world. One’s purpose may even inspire someone to enhance or change their intentions for the better or worse.

Because of this, Beth inspired her sisters that although gifts are nice, the presence of people is more meaningful and special. At another part of the March’s lives, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy were conducting their “Busy Bee Society”, and speaking about each other’s castles, their hopes and dreams. “Margaret…said slowly, ‘I should like a lovely house, full of all sorts of luxurious things- nice food, pretty clothes, handsome furniture, pleasant people, and heaps of money.’…‘Mine is to stay at home safe with Father and Mother, and help take care of the family,’ said Beth” (211). Again, the girls dreamed of such materialistic things such as money and luxury, except for Beth, who wished nothing more than to assure safety for her parents by staying at the house. She adds that her sisters were to “Keep well and be together” (211), which also represents an act of selflessness as Beth dreamed of her family of being happy remaining united. Beth’s purpose was not only to show her sisters to be selfless, but also to show compassion and love to the ones in need. Throughout the journey of Little Women, Beth showed lots of love and compassion towards those who needed it most. A significant example was the Hummel Family for although the March family was poor, the Hummel Family was much worse financially and in health. “Meg, I wish you’d go and see the Hummels. You know Mother told us not to forget them.’ Beth said. ‘I’m too tired to go this afternoon…why don’t you do yourself?’ asked Meg… ‘I have been every day, but the baby is sick, and I don’t know what to do for it...I think you or Hannah

    Importance Of Telescope

    Galileo made a countless number of amazing discoveries when he pointed his telescope up to the sky. The most important and revolutionary discovery was that all planets rotated around the Sun, not our Earth, which had been the widely held theory until then and he challenged the Catholic Church's for this. This discovery created and spread a huge fuss between the people who followed the ancient belief of Greek and Egyptian proto-scientists that the Earth was the center of the universe and that the planets revolved around it, and those who followed the Copernican theory that in fact our Earth is just one of a number of planets revolving around the sun not the way around. [3] This is the major change the telescope made in history. Another great significance was denying the Aristotelian principles, which illustrates that the Moon is above the sub-lunary sphere and it’s in the heavens, therefore it should be flawless.…
