Repost of paragraph

posted by on .

Ralph Waldo Emerson's poem "Success” is an apt description of being successful; each line expresses its own special meaning. His poem tells all readers to be responsible, respectful, and strong in life. It gives them the willpower to be sympathetic and do good deeds. Ralph Waldo Emerson's poem describes how one can become successful in life by following their hearts and doing justice to others. This poem explains that one can stay content if they change themselves from discourteous to polite. This poem inspires others to be joyful and loving. It basically tells all the readers to instil themselves and others with good values. If people can become loving after reading this poem, then they have reached success. I wholeheartedly agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s description of the concept of being successful in his poem “Success”.

    You took the discourteous/polite sentence out?? Why?

    The problem in those sentences is that you are using plural pronouns (they, their, themselves) to refer to a singular antecedent (one). You changed the phrasing in the first problem sentence so that this mismatch was taken care of. But don't just remove the other sentence! It has a very important idea in there.

    It's not that important, I guess, if it's the only slip-up in the whole paper.

    Here's the deal: When there's a singular word (and "one" and "everyone"are both singular!!!), either as the subject or the antecedent for pronouns later in the sentence, then they need to be "matched" with singulars, either the verb or later pronouns. Read #s 1 and 2 in the link I gave you.

    Correction: This poem explains that people can stay content if they change themselves from discourteous to polite.
