Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Riley Dean

"“You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go!”

IMPLICATION :

You are in control of your own life;  the text is implying that you have empowerment over  your own life. The text is stating to dictate your decisions and follow your desires. It also states that it is fine to be an individual.

"You're off to great places,

Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting,

So...get on your way!

IMPLICATION :

"You're off to great places,"; the text is stating you can go anywhere you want, everyday is a chance to do something great. The text also states that "Your mountain is waiting" , which implies that you could have potential for great things, meaning your "mountain" is your goal or accomplishment.

"Wherever you fly, you‟ll be best of the best."

"Wherever you go, you will top all the rest."

"Except when you don't."

Because, sometimes you won't."

IMPLICATION :

The text stated above infers that you can excel among others if given the effort, ("Wherever you fly, you'll be the best of the best."). "Except when you don't", states that if you do not try to overcome failure, you will most likely be unsuccessful. I find the following text from the story to be motivational to many people. It clearly states the lines of success and failure.

Summary

Oh The Places You'll Go is a story written by Dr. Seuss. An unknown narrator is following a young individual, through his many travels and decisions. As the story progresses the individual comes across a place known as the waiting place; the waiting place is a place in which many people are waiting for something to happen. The story suggests that no time passes while in the waiting place. As the character is in the waiting place there are many people idly waiting for one thing or another. The character then finds his way out of the "waiting" place and continues traveling from one place to another, as the story comes to an end.

I think the implication about you having control of your life. You make the decisions that will dictate your future.

I really think that the implications were very good and well thought out. I agree that you cannot achieve anything great unless you put forth the effort to do well.

I really like how you clearly stated all of your implications and I agree with all the implications you made. I agree because if you don't try to overcome the failures, it will be hard to become successful.

Your implications related to life very well and I agree with all of them especially the first one, about having the right to do what you want because I believe too that you have the right to do what you want and say what you want to say.

I really liked your implications, if you don't persevere and put forth your best effort to succeed, you won't.

good implications and good job on the over all presentation. i agree with all your implications cus it is clearly stating that you can do great things but you shouldn't be surprised over failure and you should move on from it

I like your implications and your textual evidence. I like the part where it says, "Except when you don't, because sometimes you wont." Last year, I didn't make the football team, even though I tried, and this year I did. The story gives inspiration to try your hardest to acheive goals, and sometimes you fall down, but you must learn to get back up. Jackson Nethercutt
