Quotations And Sayings.

      A boy's will is the wind's will. (A proverb from Lapland).

   In my opinion, this proverb means that if someone wants something very much, the universe conspires to help them. I totally agree with this, since I also firmly believe that if you do your best to achieve something that really matters to you, in some mysterious way you finally get it, after you have overcome many difficulties of cource. To sum up, if you have a dream, try hard to fulfill it and never give up.

Quote of Ellen Glasgow Opinion

Quote: "The older I grow, the more firmly I believe that the few joys of childhood are the best that life has to give."
Because of my age I can't really say if it's true or not, however I believe that every age has it's joys but they just differ from age to age.Being older can have it's perks as well as being young but everything also depends on where the person is living.In some places kids are very restricted and humiliated with child labor whereas in other places children have an awesome and carefree childhood.Moreover adults have the freedom to move to another place and build their own lives, even though they have to pay for themselves and take responsibility for all their actions.
In conclusion I would say that I disagree with this quote but I don't know if I change my mind as I grow older.

Quotations and Sayings

  The older I grow, the more firmly I believe that the few joys of childhood are the best that life has to give.

I firmly believe in that statement  because in childhood,  youngers have a great deal of leisure time. For ιinstance, they can listen to music, spend some time on computer games and generally satisfy most of their wills if they are not banned. However,  there are some restrictions that offspring have to follow,  such as not wear make up at school,  stay up late at night,  so there is not enough freedom and that makes them fly into a rage. Being an adult has many advantages,  like going on trips, hanging out till late night and generally spending their time based on their tastes. Although olders can do things easier, being one of them has some drawbacks to. First of all, they have many obligations,  also they have to work to satisfy their needs. So,  taking everything into consideration,  both steps of our ages have different pros and cons each one and we should try to joy every of them,  but beacause childhood never gonna happen again in your life try to pass this time like tomorrow doesn't exist.


Quotation explanation/opinion

 A young twig can be bent,but not an old branch. -Origin unknown

What I understood from this quotation was that the older you grow the more wisdom you accumulate so your mind is stronger than it was before,when you were a young man (young twig),therefore you get more knowledge as you grow up so it is harder for someone to tell you lies or to brain wash you.Additionally,I believe that the young twig stands for your younger ''weak'' self and the old branch for your older empowered with wisdom self.

My favourite proverb

 A young twig can be bent, but not an old branch.
-Origin Unknown

This quote compares a twig to young people that face difficulties and give up.But it also compares a branch to old people that don't kneel because they know how difficult it is to work as hard as you can to achieve your dreams.As well older people have lived more years and have a better experience.At the beginning young people might be powerless and not completely concentrate in what they want to do, but as time passes by they get more mature and develop their minds.

What an amazing experience we all had! All students were quick to produce arguments regarding the topic on the screen in order to help their team win points. The topics varied from human cloning to fossil fuel combustion, which resulted in a truly heated debate! The team called the Dark Side of the Force won this time, but who knows what the future holds for the Light Side in our next debates. This speaking activity is strongly suggested for all exam classes, in which students are asked to generate ideas on a number of thorny issues, not only in the speaking part, but also in the writing section of the exams.
