What symbol represents respect?

I don't know of any symbols that specifically mean respect. Plus, various symbols and shapes mean different things in different cultures. But symbols work by association, so you could make a symbol that means respect for you in your circumstance. Respect means "to look back at" or even "re-look." So, a pair of spectacles, a eyeglass, binoculars, etc. could all be more literal symbols. A rearview mirror might be interesting. Choose something meaningful to you.

What is the symbolic meaning of a lotus flower in Buddhism?

Answer

The lotus flower has a unique characteristic in that it blooms and sheds its seeds at the same time. In the context of Buddhism, the theory of karma says that, just like the lotus flower, our life is made up of cause and effect. Every cause -- be it action, word or thought -- will imprint an effect that can be seen in this lifetime or in future lives.

Answer

In Buddhist paintings and sculpture, the Buddha is often seated on a lotus flower. The lotus produces a beautiful flower even with its roots in the dirtiest water. The symbolism is that a person can rise above being rooted in the ugliness and suffering of this world, and should try to be pure and help others with the beauty of the spirit.

Answer

The lotus also played a role in the religious symbolism of ancient Egypt, although the papyrus is more common in surviving works of art. A discussion of the Egyptian symbolism of both flowers appears at: www.touregypt.net/featurestories/flowers.htm

Answer

In addition to the above, the lotus signifies that even the dirtiest water will not cling to the lotus (pure in spirit). Try sprinkling water on a lotus leaf and it will just roll off.

Answer

The lotus flower is believed to be able to reproduce from its own matrix. In this regard, it is the symbol of "self-regeneration" -- svayambhû in Sanskrit. Svayambhû can also mean "self-existent" and "independent." One often sees the lotus as the throne upon which the Buddha sits. Here, the Buddha is the symbol of the awakened Mind, which is self-existent, independent, and self-regenerating.

Correct ancient asociation is the lotus bursts from the seed underwater, grows up through the depths and blooms above water. This is used as an illustration of how the enlightened person must grow, in a similar fashion: born in the mud, struggling upwards until the air is reached.

Answer

The lotus flower has a symbolic meaning which represents being pure in one's spirits.The flower produces beautiful petal even if it grew in the dirtiest waters. The lotus flower symbolizes rising up out of badness and grief. For instance, if you try putting water on a petal of a lotus flower the water will not stick to it, but just simply roll off as a sign of freedom.

What is the significance of the lotus flower in Buddhism?

Many, many meanings. The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet. The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind.

The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
Archetypes

How is huckleberry Finn an heroic archetype?

A majority of the similarities between Huck and the archetype of a hero or in the steps of a hero's journey. the hero's journey is broken down into three parts departure, initiation, and return.

Within the section of departure Huck meets three of the typical characteristics of a hero's journey, the call to adventure which is something that represents a sign that the hero's life will be changing, this is seen when Huck sees Pap's boot print in the snow early in the novel. The next part is "the belly of the whale" or a trial where the hero must use his unique abilities to progress, i.e. Huck's escape from Pap's Cabin. Then Huck "crosses the threshold" entering a new world, in this book the river is the threshold to new worlds.

Next is initiation where most of the similarities are found. first is the road of trials which is basically the hero's pursuit of an ultimate goal that matures him and reveals unrealized potential, this is Huck's journey with Jim to get him to freedom, Huck matures from seeing Jim as a slave to seeing him as human and a friends. Temptation away from the path is a hero is asked to join a dark or evil side which Huck encounters when he has the chance to give Jim up but lies to protect him. Next is

atonement with father which actually means a parental figure guides the hero on his journey, in Huck Finn Jim is this parental figure. The final section of initiation is Apotheosis or a realization of the essence of life, Huck goes through this when he knows he must free Jim because he knows everyone else is wrong about slavery and he is right.

The last stage of a hero's journey is return, Huck only fulfils one of this stages standards and that is refusal to return, in the last pages of the book Miss Watson wants Huck to come home but for Huck the river is the only home he loves.

Why is Charlotte Smith important to literary history?

Charlotte Smith (1749- 1806) was a literary dynamo who could rightfully be considered the Mother of English Romanticism. In fact, all of the men who are deemed the Fathers of Romanticism made pilgramages to meet her; learned from her, and in many cases borrowed from her works. Wordsworth made it a point to be presented to her; scholarly research is only now beginning to call attention to the echoes of Smith's sonnets in his verse. William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft were friends of Smith's, and Godwin sent at least one play to her to review. Smith even babysat for Mary Godwin (Shelley) on one occasion! Sir Walter Scott noted upon Smith's death in 1806 that the debt English literature owed to Charlotte Smith would never be properly acknowledged or remembered. Sadly, history has proved him correct these past 200 years. Charlotte Smith wrote poems, plays, novels, histories and translations--mored than 63 volumes of published works. In the decade from 1789-1799 was the most popular and best-selling author of the day! Her poetry ushered in the era of "sensibility", melancholy and the autobiographical in verse which later would be made so famous by Byron, Shelley and Keats. Her work in fiction produced novels which ran the gamut from the heroine-centered (an influence on the young Jane Austen who mentions her repeatedly in letters and in her novels), political, gothic, all the way to epistolary. Charles Dickens' scene in A Tale of Two Cities of a Parisian carriage which runs over a poor child without bothering to stop comes right out of Smith's Desmond. Smith was a passionate supporter of the French Revolution and was instrumental in calling attention to the plight of the French emigres or refugees of the war which arrived by the boatload after the Reign of Terror began. She cried out against arranged marriages, primogeniture and the laws which made women and children property. Her voice was one that was heeded as laws and customs changed in the 19th century. Smith, though long buried as one of the female "novel writing horde" of the late 18th century, is in reality one of its major figures and a true pioneer in many genres and styles.
