The Clock that Had no Hands
Newspaper advertising is to business, what hands are to a clock. It is a direct and certain means of letting the public know what you are doing. In these days of intense and vigilant commercial contest, a dealer who does not advertise is like a clock that has no hands. He has no way of recording his movements. He can no more expect a twentieth century success with nineteenth century methods, than he can wear the same sized shoes as a man, which fitted him in his boyhood.
THE discourse on "Evolution and Ethics," reprinted in the first half of the present volume, was delivered
before the University of Oxford, as the second of the annual lectures founded by Mr. Romanes: whose name I
may not write without deploring the untimely death, in the flower of his age, of a friend endeared to me, as to
so many others, by his kindly nature; and justly valued by all his colleagues for his powers of investigation
and his zeal for the advancement of knowledge. I well remember, when Mr. Romanes' early work came into
my hands, as one of the secretaries of the Royal...
he majority of colleges will ask for an essay. Some schools ask for essays within the application
process, others may request this as part of their scholarship process, some ask for both.
The reality is that essays will be required. The good news is that essays are usually on general
topics, and the student is given freedom to be creative. For years, high school students have been
writing essays wondering when this would do them some good. Finally, all those writing skills will
have practical usage.

101 Some people say that physical exercise should be a required part of every school day.
Other people believe that students should spend the whole school day on academic studies.
Which opinion do you agree with? Give specific reasons and details to support your answer.
While physical exercise is important, I do not believe that it is the school’s responsibility to
provide physical training for its students. That is something that everyone can take care of on his
or her own.
Many students get plenty of physical exercise as part of their daily life...

a group than to be the leader of a group. Use specific reasons and examples to support your
According to my opinion, it’s always better to be a leader than a follower. True leader show
initiative. They take action and they assume responsibility. A leader makes a decision. Some
followers may approve of the decision, others may complain about it. However, these followers all
chose to follow, not to lead....

reasons and examples to support your opinion.
No one knows me as well as my parents. No one wants the best for me like my parents. It is
natural that I should allow my parents to make important decisions for me. I think all older
teenagers (15 to 18 year-olds) should take their parents advice on decisions that concern their
education, their social life,...

came and I was...
During college time, the students can learn how to get on well with others, how to plan their time, how to study by themselves and how to live by themselves more than the knowledge in books. The former is more helpful not only to their future career but to their future life.

As a matter of fact, the children themselves do not really know why they should attend college when they grow up. And their parents may know the reasons either from their own experience or from others' around them.
Others go to college primarily because of the new friendships they will gain there and the opportunity to learn whatever they are interested in instead of what they are made to by their parents or society. In my opinion, in most cases career preparation is the main stimulus to students to enroll in a college or university.
Moreover universities have huge libraries carrying thousands of books of different subjects and other study material like fictional non-fictional, journals, newspapers, reports which are huge sources of information for the students and teachers.
The people who graduate from college or university seem more confident in our community. These are more respected by the society'. Many people want to be respected and to be important by family, friends, their bosses and others in their lives.
