Dialectical Journals 1. "His fame rested on strong personal achievements." Pg. 3 paragraph 1 All fame starts when you do something noticeable. As an example, actors and actresses build upon their careers and reputations with achieving excellence in their own personal objectives, as well as perfecting their public performance. 2.

From the dark, people expect things to be lurking round the bend, so waiting for somebody to summon it. I can relate this selection to my past experiences with my pals.
