    Hopeless Humanity An Analysis of a Colin Wilson Quote Colin Wilson was once quoted as saying, "The average man is a conformist, accepting miseries and disasters with the stoicism of a cow standing in the rain." While this quote can be interpreted many different ways, like most quotes, I think that Wilson is trying to say humans sometimes lose hope and let whatever happens happen to them. Most of the time this Wilson quote rings surprisingly true when you examine the average life of a normal human being. In some cases, we see individuals with an abundance of perseverance and determination that will stop at nothing to get what they believe they deserve. Personally, I believe Colin Wilson is correct in this statement because humans are often victims of depression, fate, and misguided hopes. Depression is a mental illness that, whether it is diagnosed or not, has plagued and will continue to plague society. It is very easy to fall into the trap of depression, but it is very difficult to escape this vicious cycle once you are part of it. For that reason, I think Colin Wilson 's quote is supremely accurate about men. Once you have accepted that you aren 't happy with the way life goes one time, it becomes easier to stop fighting to make things better and instead stand like the proverbial cow in the rain. It will always be harder to continue than it will be to give up, and many men will lose their motivation and will before they succeed. When…

    Sperlonga sculptures are four sculptural groups that were discovered in 1957 in a grotto on the coast between Naples and Rome.

    Judith Jarvis Thomson argued that while there were objections to abortion, they weren’t well supported. While some people think that abortion is morally wrong, I agree with Thomson because of many reasons. One main reason is that while the fetus has the right to life, a mother does at well. Having an abortion could also be beneficial to the mother’s health if needed. Even if the mother’s health is not at stake and she knew of the risks and still engaged in consensual sex, it’s an unexpected…

Thomson begins by arguing that there is no right time to mark the point in which a person should begin to be considered a person. She then gives an example of an oak tree and how it is not called an oak tree at the beginning, but goes through stages to become an oak tree. Nevertheless, Thomson does agree that a fetus becomes a person at some point…
