PURITANS Ester Edwards
“Mrs. Edwards was thirty-three years old today. That seems very old. I wonder if I shall live to be thirty-three? ” We can understand in this quote living was so hard for Puritans in that time. She was just nine years old girl and she was scared of dying. Compare with this time nine year old girls and boys worried about their toys.
FOUNDING FATHERS Patrick Henry
“Give me liberty or give me death” they were so miserable because the King would not give them rights and they felt like slaves. They didn’t want to be under Britain anymore. Britain make thing more harder for them. They prefer dying instead of being under Britain.
NATIVE AMERICANS N. Scoot Momaday
“This Native vision, this gift of seeing truly with wonder and delight, into the natural world is informed by a certain attitude of reverence and self respect” they see the things truly. They knew this was a gift for them and they appreciate for it. They care about nature and it’s part of their identity. This is very different from most European view points.
