Plato, The Great Philosopher

Plato is the most celebrated, honoured and revered of all the philosophers of the western world. He lived in Athens twenty-four centuries ago, in the fourth century before Christ, and throughout history, since then the praise of Plato has been expressed in figures of speech, which compete with one another in their eloquence. He is said to be the greatest of the philosophers which western civilization has produced; he is said to be the father of western philosophy; the son of the god Apollo; a sublime dramatist and poet with a vision of beauty which enhances all human life; a mystic who, before Christ and Saint Paul, beheld a transcendent realm of goodness, love, and beauty; he is said to be the greatest of the moralists and social philosophers of all time.

Traffic Jam

Or, Traffic Jam in Big Cities and Towns

Traffic Jam is a common affair in big cities and towns. The reasons are not far to seek. First, the rapid growth of population and their movement on roads and highways by vehicles of different sort cause it greatly. Secondly, the violation of traffic rules especially by rickshaw-pullers and their tendency to overtake other vehicles are also causing traffic jam. Thirdly, the loading or unloading of buses and trucks here and there on the roads and the congested and narrow roads also create it. Above all, everybody, so to say, undergoes a lot of troubles and has to reach his office or goal late. Though the government has taken different steps to minimize the traffic jam, there has been no remarkable change. 

Same paragraph collected from another book

Traffic jam refers to a long line of vehicles on the road leading to serious roadblock. It is a common picture of the major roads of Bangladesh. It is also seen on the town or even rural roads. There are some causes behind this. Firstly, many drivers are ignorant of traffic rules while some others deliberately violate traffic rules. This leads to serious roadblock. Again, plying of various vehicles with different velocity causes traffic jam. The vehicles with high speed are sometimes blocked by vehicles with less speed. Traffic jam is largely occurred due to thousands of rickshaws plying on the busy roads. Besides, sometimes water clogged on the road leads to traffic jam. Finally, poor driving, reckless parking alongside pavements and unhealthy competition among drivers cause traffic jam. It makes us waste our valuable time. It hampers our works. It also makes us undone in emergency need of movement. It can be solved by maintaining traffic rules strongly as well as making drivers conscious about following these rules. Therefore, training programmes for drivers can be arranged to make them aware of the traffic rules. On the other hand, the traffic rules should be strictly followed so that the drivers are bound to obey them.

My Best Friend and Myself

Alim is my best friend. He always keeps his commitment. He is a brilliant student. He is not selfish at all. This quality of Alim’s impresses me very much because most friendship is formed with some interest. But there are some differences between my best friend and me. My best friend, Alim lives in a village. But I am living in the capital city. He comes from a poor family. But I born in a rich and respectable Muslim family. I am fond of collecting stamps and play indoor game like chess. While Alim is fond of playing football game and other outdoor games. On the contrary, there are some specific similarities between my best friend and me. Both of us are devoted to our studies. We never tell a lie neither plays false with others. We offer salat to the Almighty Allah timely and regularly. We are fond of doing recreational activities like gardening, angling, watching television, attending debate competition, etc. We never disobey our superiors rather we always try to follow their instructions and advice. We are also fond of travelling and visiting new places and things. However, I like my friend very much as he keeps his word. 

Paragraph - 425

Persuasion and Force

It is not altogether true that persuasion is one thing and force is another. Many forms of persuasion, even many of which everybody approves, are really a kind of force. Consider what we do to our children. We do not say to them : “Some people think the earth is round, and others think it is flat; when you grow up, you can if you like, examine the evidence and form your own conclusion.” Instead of this, we say : “The earth is round.” By the time, our children are old enough to examine the evidence, our propaganda has closed their minds, and the most persuasive arguments of the Flat Earth Society make no impression. The same applies to the moral precepts that we consider really important, such as “don’t pick your nose” or “don’t eat peas with a knife.” There may, for aught I know, be admirable reasons for eating peas with a knife, but the hypnotic effect of early persuasion has made me completely incapable of appreciating them.
