Mammon and the Archer by O. Henry (Short Story)

Old Anthony Rockwall, who made millions of dollars by making and selling Rockwall’s soap, stood at the window of his large Fifth Avenue house. He was looking out at his neighbor, G. Van Schuylight Suffolk-Jones. His neighbor is a proud member of a proud old New York family. He came out of his door and got into a cab. He looked once quickly, as usual, at Anthony Rockwall’s house. The look showed that Suffolk-Jones was a very important man, while a rich soapmaker was nothing.  Link

ENGLISH VIDEO CLASS

Effective expressions to express your personality

Video: https://youtu.be/A8Cgi1ss8AM

In this lesson, I will teach you verbs, expressions, and idioms you can use to bring out your unique personality and communication style.

For example, there is a lot more you can say other than “I think that…” Using other expressions such as “it looks as if”, “it sounds like”, “I sense that”, or “I feel that” makes your language richer and helps you build relationships with others.

Watch this video to discover more about your own personal style and how you can express yourself more like a native speaker. This video goes into the theory of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming).

If you want to go even further with the idea of representational systems within NLP, you can then use your knowledge of language and behaviour to build stronger relationships and to influence people.

For example, if you observe that your friend is a strongly visual person, you can adapt your language and the expressions you use to be more visual. This will help the two of you connect and interact better.

“Photograph” por Ed Sheeran

Video: https://youtu.be/nSDgHBxUbVQ

Loving can hurt

Loving can hurt sometimes

But it’s the only thing that I know

And when it gets hard

You know it can get hard sometimes

It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

 

We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts were never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

 

So you can keep me inside the pocket

Of your ripped jeans

Holding me close until our eyes meet

You won’t ever be alone

Wait for me to come home

 

Loving can heal

Loving can mend your soul

And it’s the only thing that I know

I swear it will get easier

Remember that with every piece of you

And it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

 

We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Our hearts were never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

 

So you can keep me inside the pocket

Of your ripped jeans

Holding me close until our eyes meet

You won’t ever be alone

And if you hurt me that’s okay baby

Only words bleed

Inside these pages you just hold me

And I won’t ever let you go

Wait for me to come home

 

Oh you can fit me

Inside the necklace you got

When you were sixteen

Next to your heartbeat where I should be

Keep it deep within your soul

 

And if you hurt me

Well that’s okay baby

Only words bleed

Inside these pages you just hold me

And I won’t ever let you go

 

When I’m away

I will remember how you kissed me

Under the lamppost back on 6th street

Hearing you whisper through the phone

Wait for me to come home
