Love is stronger than hate
2010 October 8 tags: apartheid, God by Paul Vallely
[pic]One of the great figures of the twentieth century vowed he was going into retirement yesterday. Do not believe it. Desmond Tutu has retired before and whenever a serious injustice reared its head he has returned.
Desmond Mpilo Tutu was one the central forces in the dismantling of the apartheid state which kept a white elite in power over the black majority in South Africa for nearly five decades, causing untold death and suffering.
In the early years of apartheid various movements of political protest and resistance arose. The white regime responded by arresting tens of thousands of black activists. Many more in the African National Congress (ANC) went into exile, to continue their opposition from abroad.
The torch of resistance back home was passed largely to the South African churches, the one group the white government could not outlaw. Its most prominent leader was Desmond Tutu who in 1975 had become the first black man to be appointed Dean of St. Mary’s Anglican Cathedral in Johannesburg. “It was people of faith who by and large kept the fires of revolution burning,” he later said in an interview for a BBC documentary I presented.
Just a year after his appointment at the cathedral he came to international attention for the vigour of his condemnations of the massacre of schoolchildren in Soweto. Hundred were mown down by white police for protesting against the government’s decision to make black schools use Afrikaans as the language of education.
Tutu bravely spoke out, encouraging the public in the West to launch an economic boycott of his country. Sanctions might throw blacks out of work, Tutu argued, but at least they would be suffering “with a purpose”. He organised peaceful marches which brought tens of thousands of people onto the streets.
But he also travelled abroad,…...

Love and Hate

...‘Miłość i Nienawiść’ 1. Pozwól, że zacznę od miłości, tyle ci jej dałem Dziś zrozumiałem, że tylko się przed Tobą kompromitowałem! Choć raz zrób coś dla mnie i poświęć mi te 4 minuty I uważnie wsłuchaj się w te szczere nuty: Codziennie marzę by się nam razem życie ułożyło, Traktowałbym cię inaczej niż z tamtym było. Pewnie dalej nie mam u ciebie szans, Chuj poczekam aż przejdziesz cały ten las, Chłopaków, łajdaków, prostaków, Grubych, chudych, ładnych, brzydkich, A na gdzieś na końcu będę ja, któryś z tych wszystkich. Wierz lub nie ale ja czekać mogę, Nie jedna nawinąć się może, wtedy podstawie jej nogę, Bo cierpliwości mam pod dostatkiem Czekam aż do mego portu zawitasz swoim statkiem. Jestem jak pierdolony pingwin, jak kocham to na zawsze, Przyniosę ci ten kamyk, po czym przy twym boku zasnę. Nadchodzi zima, hibernacja mnie dopada, Rób miejscu w łóżku bo na ryj spadam, To nie pierwszy raz kiedy z wątpliwości upadam. Wstaję i walczę, idę dalej po ciebie, Za każdym razem gdy mnie przytulasz jestem w niebie. Jesteś tej nieustannej walki i skruchy warta Kiedyś mi za to podziękujesz, jak Francja za Napoleona Bona Parta. 2. I tak bez refrenu, szybki przeskok do nienawiści Nie mogę już tego w sobie tłamsić, jestem pełen zawiści! Myślałem, że łączyło nas uczucie, Byłem głupi, omotałaś mnie, nie zdążyłem uciec. Dałem się nabrać na twoje gierki, Użyłaś mnie jak matematyk ekierki, Po czym odsunęłaś na bok, Bym nie przeszkadzał z kolejną......

...as many wars as it has ended? What emotion has had more plays, songs, and stories written about it than anything else? Love, that one emotion that makes enemies into friends and friends into enemies. So many legends surround this emotion, from the goddess Athena and Helen of Troy to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Love comes in so many different levels, that it doesn't appear to be the same emotion at all, but it is. There is so much to love, that it will be hard to put into this simple essay. It can tear people apart and make us do irrational things to bringing together entire nations. What can this emotion not do? It's hard to tell, but there is a lot it can. This emotion, bring tears to our eyes when something happens to our family members, friends, and pets. When we feel love ripped from us, as in death or being spurned by another, we do things we wouldn't normally do, such as go on violent rampages, or mourn to the extent that our loved ones have to watch us constantly to make sure we don't try anything like suicide. Some can move on, always remembering the lost loved one after a while, but others can not let go. These are the ones that need our love and support the most. There are so many levels to love, that I can only express a few of them here. These are the ones we see most in life. Friendship starts this list off. Yes, it doesn't seem like it, but we do feel love towards our friends, this is what helps us get along so well, and why we miss them when we......

The Themes of Love and Hate in Romeo and Juliet

...Themes of Love and Hate in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet 1 Themes of Love and Hate in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet is a play about two young lovers, whose love was destined for destruction from the beginning because of the hatred between the two families, Montagues and Capulets. Therefore, the themes of love and hate are very important in the play as the plot is driven by these two themes. Shakespeare brings out the love between the two rivals through Romeo and Juliet and their relationships with the Friar and the Nurse. I want to argue that in the play, the themes of love and hate are closely linked. To show this, I have selected some of the most important scenes in the play, which illustrate the idea that love and hate are closely bound together. The first example is the chorus, which is found at the beginning of the play, in the prologue. It is a short summary of what the play is about. The chorus is in the form of a sonnet and sonnets were often associated with love in the time of Shakespeare. However, the words of the chorus seem to emphasize the idea of hate although there are some words about love. “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” (Prologue, 3-4) These two lines are about the feud between the families. It shows that it is a feud, which has been brewing for many years. By repeating the words civil, Shakespeare is stressing the fact that they are all......

More Than Love

...James Nolasco English 100 Mr. Lewis 10/08/13 More than Love In “Sarah Cole: A Type Of Love Story”, appearance and class are two main indicators of success and social superiority as well as the qualifiers for acceptance in the standard image. In this story, Russell Banks creates an example of inequality between two individuals from opposite ends of their social and economic class. Of these two characters, Ron is more successful and Sarah is the less fortunate. Accordingly, Ron is a step ahead in the relationship from the beginning and Sarah follows close behind. However, this interpretation, obvious as it may seem, is nowhere written in the text. Banks instead makes it visible to the reader by playing with our perception. It is his method of shifting the story’s point of view that creates our awareness of the exclusion in Ron and Sarah’s relationship. Ron ignores humiliation and reputation for a moment only to discover that love can be found despite appearance and social class. Ron is not physically attracted to Sarah; on the contrary, he is fascinated by her appearance. He’s not trying to connect with her emotionally but only to lengthen this instance of experiencing something so odd. Similarly, both he and Sarah are interested in the weirdness of their relationship. Since Sarah probably never has had the chance to date someone out of her league and Ron is being pulled in by her grotesque appearance. Ron is well aware of how......

Love

...forms of love. Some are powerful and demand attention while others are more subtle and just below the surface. In recent years, love has drifted from these subtle levels to the more noticeable ones, namely passion. In my opinion, our society downplays the real necessity for genuine affection. By this I mean that we, as a society, spend so much time focusing on only one level of love (passion) that we tend to neglect and not recognize the need for closeness and trust (friendship). Love is an all-encompassing emotion that can be powerful and demanding, but also rewarding and pleasurable. What is the one emotion that has everyone mystified?

It can even turn all of the ugliness in the world into the most beautiful portrait we could ever have the pleasure to behold. Love comes......

Love comes in so many different levels, that it doesn't seem to be the same emotion at all, but it indeed is. There is so much to the word love, that it can’t be described all at once. It can tear people apart and make us do ridiculous things, to bringing together entire nations. What can this emotion not do? Nothing. This emotion, bring tears to our eyes when something happens to our friends and families.

The Theme of Madness and of Love and Hate in the Tell Tale Heart

...The Themes of Madness and of Love and Hate in Poe’s “Tell Tale Heart” and Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover” In Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “Tell Tale Heart” and in Robert Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover,” both unnamed narrators commit murder and provide the audience with a seemingly unjustifiable reason as to why they murder their loved ones. In “Tell Tale Heart” and in “Porphyria’s Lover,” both narrators attempt to pose to the audience that they are not insane and effectively accomplish this through their tone and explicit narration. Two of the recurring themes within both Poe’s short story and Browning’s poem are madness and the tension between love and hate. The themes are reinforced through calm tone and passive tone and through the characterization of the narrators. In Poe’s “Tell Tale Heart,” the narrator opens up the short story denying the fact that he is insane and defends his statement by confessing to killing an old man in a very calculated and precise manner with the simple motivation being his fear of the old man’s “eye of a vulture.” The narrator goes through with his plan of murdering the old man and hides the body only to be engulfed by a feeling of guilt which leads him to confessing his act to the police. Throughout the short story, the narrator continues to tell the audience that he is not insane due to his “sharpened … senses” and his “calm” way of telling the whole story, yet it is his tale of murder that contradicts the very claim that he attempts......

The constant rhythm throughout the poem gives it a light beat, like a waltz; the reader feels like s/he is dancing. The rhyme pattern of the poem is between the first-third lines and second-fourth lines in the quatrain and this is kept throughout the poem. Stresses on words such as dizzy and easy and buckle and knuckle gives the poem a rather playful feel. The last line of the poem, "waltzed me off to bed still clinging to your shirt" infers the boy in very much dependent on his father and shows despite the elements of criticism, a father-son relationship based, at least partly on love....

Love

...Love is something that means very different things to different people. For some, love can be purely romantic, or even purely sexual. For others, real love is utterly unconditional and only truly exists between family members, or between people and a deity. And for some people, love is fluid, ever changing, and everywhere, and is felt for family, friends, partners, pets, and even inanimate objects, dead artists, and fictional characters. None of these people would be right or wrong, but one thing is certain: love is the most powerful force in the entire universe. Between partners of any description, be they married or cohabiting, boyfriend and girlfriend, straight or gay, young or old, love is a relationship of mutual understanding and respect. Marriages and partnerships are often built on common ground that people find when they first meet; this can be as deep as sharing religious, philosophical or religious beliefs, or as simple as finding that you love the same film, book, or band. This kind of love is often reliant on some kind of ‘chemistry’: that strange feeling that they give you in the pit of your stomach, and the feeling that nothing in the world is more important to you than enjoying the moment you’re in together. Some people feel that they experience love at first sight, where they know from the minute they set eyes on each other that they want to to be with that person, but something built on common interests and understanding must be stronger. A parent’s love......
