Characterization The Man Who Loved Flowers

560 words - 3 pages

Different people may have different opinions, life, and even different ideas. In Martin Luther king speech “The dimensions of a complete life”; he debates what is really needed in order to reach self-actualization. These three dimensions of a complete life are: length, breadth, and height. He defines the length inner anxiety for the well-being, the breadth as the exterior disquiet for the well-being of others, and the height as the amount of good deeds to gain God's satisfaction. In this article, I will refer to only two points which I agree on and those are length and breadth.
In Martin Luther king speech, I agree with him when he begins to speak about the length of the life and defined it as the inner power of the people, which we must all ...view middle of the document...

And he demonstrated the idea that there should not be big differences between people. In comparison to that, our world today has changed a lot as there are a person who does not have a house or family, living in the street, however those people are very small amount. When you believe and love yourself you will be able to do everything you want.
The second point that I agree with the author speech, the breadth of the life. He was discussing how the person will reacts with another person who needs help, according to him he was taking about a man saw a guy injured and helped him, for a moment he asked himself “if I help a man, what will happen to me?” In the same moment the Good Samaritan “if I do not help this man what will happen to him?” (pg. 2). One may ask himself a simple question and that is “what if I was the one I needed help?” and acted accordingly. The motivate that people feared for themselves to get hurt, but more over now a day’s people assistance would not offered because of the severances. Also, as a documentary that I have watched lately showing people attitude against two people falling down and needed help one of them was full dressed and the other was poor, the people run to the man full dressed and they passed away from the poor man.
All in all, care about others the way you care about yourself and wish them the good you wish for yourself, and be thankful to God taking these dimensions into consideration you will have completed live.
