pd.4 Transcendentalism Cartoon I used this cartoon as an example because all of the other monks in this picture are praying except one of them. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Monsters Inc. i Self-Reliance Quote Self-Reliance Commercial I used Monsters Inc as an example of nonconformity because it's not normal for monsters to be with humans but Mike and Sully meet Boo and help her get back home while worrying that other monsters might try to take her away. I used this movie trailer as an example of nonconformity because it's not normal for it to rain in food or have a house out of jell-o but he made it possible. “Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.” ~Christopher Morley Quote Quote “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” ~Herman Melville Nonconformity Nonconformity Nonconformity “I'd rather die my way than live yours.”
― Lauren Oliver, Delirium I used this commercial because the guy does not have anybody telling him what to do, he is doing this all on his own. Quote Self-Reliance In this picture all the baby penguins are still with their parents except one who has already walked off. Quote “I don't need anyone to hold me, I can hold my own.”
― Ani DiFranco “Only a weak person needed someone else around all the time.”
Sarah Dessen, Lock and Key In this picture it shows an example of taking step by step but at the top he succeeded all on his own. Civil Disobedience Quote “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
― Martin Luther King Jr. Civil Disobedience Quote Civil Disobedience Quote Salt March This started when the production of Indian salt got taxed. Gandhi and his supporters began a march to produce salt and transport it without paying tax. Boston Tea Party This is an example of civil disobedience because it was the colonists way to protest of the high taxes. “It is not always the same thing to be a good man and a good citizen.”
― Aristotle, Selected Writings From The Nicomachean Ethics And Politics Get Up Stand Up I used this song as an example because in his lyrics it mostly says to "get up, stand up for your rights". He is trying to say that we should stand up and fight for our own rights before they get taken away for good. “If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law”
― Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience Confidence Confidence Confidence Importance of Nature Importance of Nature Importance of Nature Brave I used this clip as an example of confidence because in this movie Merida, the princess, is suppose to let the suitors compete for her hand in marriage but she was confident and brave enough to compete for her own hand in marriage as well. Quote Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable. ~Wendy Wasserstein In the beginning of this video Spongebob was confident enough to stand up to Plankton and was able to save all of the other fish. Spongebob Squarepants Quote If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint," then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. ~Vincent Van Gogh Toy Story I used this clip as an example because the toys never want any humans to find out they can be just like humans too, but Woody and the other toys that Sid had confronted him to stop him from destroying toys. Quote You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go.
~Dr. Seuss Michael Jackson
Earth Song In this video Michael talks about how so many trees and animals are being destroyed and that people should stop destroying and start helping those animals and plant more trees. Pocahontas- Colors of the Wind I used this song because Pocahontas is showing and telling him how important nature is to her and her tribe. Quote I used this video because in this movie it's man vs nature. Jake is helping the "Na'vi" fight for their home, Pandora, from it getting completely destroyed by man. Avatar Quote Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.
George Washington Carver Quote The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
Frank Lloyd Wright The End Thanks for watching
