Be Present is a Gift! Use it Wisely
The present time has one advantage over every other - it is our own."
—Charles Caleb Colton (1780-1832)
The titled responsion urges the listener to "be" the gift otherwise known as the present!
As a command, the grammar of the Being is commanded into awareness. The alternative is somewhere on the stage-play of life, dreaming, creating and wishing you were, rather than are.
Charles Caleb Colton (praised by contemporaries as the "Godfather of Romanticism") was an English writer, artist, and antiquary. He was born in Ireland and immigrated to England, where he studied art at the Royal Academy. After studying art, he became a clergyman and professor of divinity at Cambridge University. He married a cousin of Catherine Howard, the beautiful daughter of the Marquess of Queensbury and lived near the house where Henry VIII's infamous split with Catherine of Aragon was finalized.

Some of his best-known works include Memoirs of an Ex-Preacher, The Preacher's Son, and The Preacher and His Bride. He was also instrumental in founding the Society of Friends, which was an organization dedicated to promoting free-thought and religious tolerance. It still exists today.

Some of his most famous paintings include The Battle of Hastings and The Battle of Agincourt, both of which have been widely praised in recent years. Colton is credited with helping to revolutionize the English language.

The Present is a Gift
I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day."
—James Joyce (1882-1941)
The titled responsion is a go-to example of a wise tautology of sorts (ie. ordered arrangement).
"A man who can see clearly into the future is a rare and wondrous person." - James Joyce. James Joyce is the most acclaimed and popular Irish poet. He died on Saturday, June 8, 1904, after a lengthy illness. As he was dying, he wrote a poem that is still widely read today, "Lolita" in which he describes his view of the world that will exist when he is no longer with us. The poem is a haunting one, as it describes the end of a world that we have known. The words are a testament to his creativity, and how his mind could conceive of what would become of his beloved Ireland.
For a man who has spent years creating the future, it seems that he was also quite aware of the problems that lie ahead of him. He writes: "What has become of Ireland? When the last of my generation go to sleep, what will be left of Ireland? When will I leave this place, I ask? "He" was referring to himself as well as all those who loved him. As a poet, he knew the problems he had faced and the work that was needed to overcome them. His death marked his own demise.
In "The Portrait of a Young Man", Joyce makes a similar statement about what lies in store for him when he dies. "A man who knows all about the future is a man who knows what is not possible," he said. We will always be reminded of the importance of reading as a young person in his poem "The Night Before an Execution." Joyce was a student at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, who fell under the spell of William Blake and went on to produce some of the best poetry of the nineteenth century. It was his interest in Blake's work that would eventually lead him to write "A Portrait of a Young Man" in the first place. In many ways, this poem is a testament to the power of dreams. In addition to telling the future of his own life, it also portrays the future of Ireland, for which James Joyce was greatly responsible.
What Are We Doing Afterwards?
The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness."
—Abraham Maslow's (1908-1970)
The titled responsion is poking fun of the everlasting life that is in all reality contained in the word present, "doing" something afterwards is a non-sequitur.
What happens after the present is well and good into the future, at least this is the optimistic outlet, turning adversity into opportunity and goodness into meaningful reflections of further futurity. Past participants of our own future as the story unfolds, our autobiographical selves are phenomenological in nature, existential if you will, without the negation or the emphasis on Nothingness. However novel this approach is, nothing negates nothingness except language itself. Oh, the games we play!
Abraham Maslow, the famous psychologist was a graduate of Harvard, who had also completed his undergraduate studies at Columbia University. The American psychologist was a very early proponent of human development theory and was a pioneer in the field of psychology. He is often referred to as an authority on psychology. In the past, he has been associated with such fields as sociology, anthropology, developmental psychology and sociology.
Abraham Maslow was an American psychologist who was one of the foremost creators of modern humanism. His theories in human behaviour were first introduced in the 1920s and have continued to be controversial ever since. The theory that Maslow developed, states that human behaviour is formed from the need of an individual for security and a feeling of worth, both from a biological and sociological perspective. According to the theory, the desire for security is related to the need for safety, which is a basic instinct of all humans. The concept of security, then, is a basic need of all people.
The concept of security, then, is related to a social need. Maslow, further believed that security is related to the need for acceptance in the group. The need for acceptance in the group can come from parents, friends, peers and other social groups. The basic concept of the human being, according to Maslow, is that we are all part of a larger unit and our need for security, is a need for acceptance in that larger unit. This concept helps us to understand that although we may not like to think so, we are always in a position to find security within the group that we belong to.
There are times when it is best to be content with what one has, so as not to lose everything".
—José Saramago's (1922-2010)
The titled responsion is pairing two prudent concepts.
Possession is lawful, orderly perhaps. A civil society balances the gift of the present but this shouldn't come at the expense of our future or the future of our descendants. I'm thinking, you can't possess want was never yours to begin with.
This short book was a very enjoyable read and it was the kind of novel that has kept me reading for several hours. It was about a woman who was on the verge of retirement, but she decides to go into business for herself.
The story is very interesting, to say the least and I especially enjoyed the part where she meets the man who could change her life. It also was entertaining to see how he acted with the other women. The book is well written and has a very strong plotline, which is something that most writers these days do not have these days. I found this a little disjointed in the beginning but once you get to know the character you realize how well this is written.
It was also a little slow at times but I will give it that because the author managed to pull off this theme very effectively without boring the reader. It was also a very good read that will keep you interested till the end. I think it is one of those novels that will stick around for a long time because of its theme and the storyline. It is certainly one of the best that I have read so far.
