  • 1. De Tocqueville’s America Ch. 13 How the Principle of Equality Naturally Divides the Americans into a Multitude of Small Private Circles. “The personal pride of individuals will always seeks to rise above the line” this statement is true to the case of the types of people that must show that they are different and “better” than the average-Joe. In the reading, the author makes a point that indirectly people are pre-eminence over one another, and do not give any respect or feel that they do not owe anything to each other. Citizens who do not fall into this category tend to go about their lives, seem to not be so restricted to be living a certain way, or even bothered. However, these aristocrats, or people who participate in political assemblies and courts of justice, often tend to have their own circle of friends, have a private life, and are constantly being separated by a thin- invisible thread. Thus, these citizens form a division of Americans who tend fall into these small private circles Ch. 10 The Young Woman in the Character of a Wife Whether biologically, observationally or simply the era she was born, a woman has been taught to do what is expected of her, and voluntarily and who freely enters upon this responsibility of being the little woman of the household once married. I believe that woman take on more of the hard life nowadays because of the labor they must endure, nurturing, bringing up a “proper” family, and making sure the house is presentable; all while trying to have a stable job to help her husband. Women, even dating back to the Anglo- era, have been the backbone of any man. They provide comfort, love, tenderness, and strength. Through countless times, a young woman will push through many obstacles, adding age to herself, to achieve that fulfilling feeling of providing for her family with everything they physically and mentally need.
