Quickwrite: Ethos

Post  Admin on September 24th 2008, 11:25 am

Trust Me, I'm Virtuous

In an appeal to ethics, writers attempt to persuade their readers by highlighting their own good character or the supposed superiority of the position for which they are arguing. An argumentative essay that appeals to ethics (ethos) might use phrases like you can trust me and the virtuous position is.

Write five sentences that appeal to ethics.

1. From my moral point of view...

2. My peers, you can be sure I will always make the right choices.

3. Because of my experience, I would be well suited to assist you in your cause.

4. An forum Admin like myself is able to make moral judgements when the time comes.

I can feel your pain, I know where you come from, I can understand you.

Writing is one of those things that just doesn't come to everybody, they need inspiration. It is our job to help each other with that inspiration.

Protecting the people is something that is neccessary, and I will give my life to do so.

We can change the world, but one person can only make so much difference. We must stand together.

As an inhabitant of the planet Earth, Global Warming not only affects us, but the things around us, which in turn affects us even greater.

As a scientist, there is no concievable way that I can truly support both scientific progress and religion. Religion throws up a stopping block to the progression of science. As a scientist I see ways to progress our position in the world. This is not to say that scientists are immoral, merely that they have fewer boundaries, fewer restrictions on what we believe can be done; science can solve many problems but is stopped by the conservative, confined, and restricted minds of religious enthusists.

Ethos!

Post  CDuBs on September 24th 2008, 12:15 pm

Speaking from the point of view of someone who portrays other human beings for my livelihood, I can give you my solemn vow that this is not a case of acting; this is a wonderful display of honesty.

Having attended a Catholic school myself, I cannot help but be impressed by the impeccable morals being shown by the Republican party.

Being a strong believer in ethical treatment myself, I am proud to state my support for Barrack Obama in the upcoming election.

A proud alumni of the School of the Arts INTERACT program, danger to our envirnonment has always been a very important issue to me, and I am made ill by John McCain's disconcern for it.

I have been riding horses for seven years, therefore, my love for animals should not come as any large surprise. This is why I think it is important to take larger steps to promoting the ethical treatment of animals everywhere.


Sorry, everyone, for the ambiguity of that first sentence. Interpret it as you wish!

As a dancer, dedication and respect for the craft, which I exhibit, is required.

Shaped by my experiences as the middle child, I am able to judge things from an objective perspective.

Having taken on the load of three AP courses, time management and organisation is something in which I specialise.

Having grown up with a psycotic older sister, I know what crazy looks like. I am not crazy.

An Attempt at Ethos

Post  zjohnson2692 on September 24th 2008, 12:15 pm

If we do not act now, the people of this country will suffer immensely.

In my many years at this school, I have more than proven my character and reliability.

My 7 years in Catholic Schools provided me with both a solid education and a clear sense of morality.

Ethics

Post  Meghan43 on September 24th 2008, 12:16 pm

As the president of National Honor Society I can assure you that my views on character, on leadership, and on service are very trustworthy. We as NHS members truly worry for our community. My peers I hope that you can be supportive in our attempts to better this community. I have much experience in this area being a returning member, elected by the former officials as the president. This school can trust in me, afterall those you put your trust in last year put their trust in me.

Pendle ethos

Post  pfmh on September 24th 2008, 12:17 pm

As a fellow American, I come from the same society that all of you are a part of. It is no wonder, then, that I am upset by the same things that all of you are upset by and that I rejoice in the same things that all of you rejoice in. It has come to my attention, as a member of this highly motivated and notoriously driven country, that we have been confronted with a terrible environmental conflict. Every american has come to terms with the inevitably high gas prices that we have been forced to pay. We must stop and think, like so many of those who have come before us have done. If America is to remain the most powerful nation on earth, we must take advantage of the variety of intellect and resources that we are famous for. Let's use science to make ourselves energy efficient! Together we can become the first oil-independant country in the world.

Everyone knows that strong morals raise strong human beings.....

From my experience of eleven years in music, I understand the worth of quality classical music.

As a seasoned swimmer, I realize the worth and rewards of hard work.

Having worked on an organic farm and interacted with organic farmers, I recognize the love for the environment that these farmers hold.

Take it from me, it is a bad idea to empty an entire bottle of hot sauce on one's meal. I would know; I learned the hard way.

American childeren are heavier than ever. In my thirty years of being a child pedeatrician, I have seen the progression grow almost as rapidly as the weight of the children I see.

Being a drama major, I know that putting on plays is a lot of work.

As a brother, I know sisters enjoy tormenting others.

Believe me when I tell you your music sucks because I know what good music is.

As a well rounded food eater, I know that tacos rule.

Wetting the bed isn't fun, I did it a number of times.

As a young man from a broken family,deceased parents,and no money. I have come to live in this country, called by many "of Dreams".
I as many before me, have migrated with not much, but a lot of desire burning, from inside. This is the land were many gave their lives, living on little food but lots of hope. Not much money, hard work but the fate that one day if not them, but their family can live in prosperity. I have strainght of hart and believe that with hard work and determination to I can achieve most anything. Please don't look at me as just as any immigrant coming to take your jobs. Have faight in my words as I have of your land. With no fate and care there is no peace in this world.

It is your duty to vote for the best candidate and return our nation to the top.

In my many years with the Drama department, I have become a driven person, not only in the theater, but in everything else as well.

I, like many other, have had health problems. But I have overcome this and will overcome any other obstacles that come my way with no hestiation.

Having been a Catholic school student myself, I understand the importance and need for self expression through clothing.

1) As secretary of NHS, I can vehemently promise the lasting moral benefits to volunteer work
2) Like all of you here, I as a fellow studentudent can understand the frustrations that our principal creates for us.
3) Due to the sturggles my family has faced in order to earn a living, I know full well the importance of getting an education.
4) After taking numerous English classes, I have a competant understanding of how to write an essay.
5) The countless hours I've spent watching t.v has given me a vast knowledge of sitcom episodes
