    Hi there,
    I am in need of help for writing an essay based on these topics:
    - Be like the duck: Calm above the water but paddling hard underneath
    - Money is not the root of all evil. Love is.
    - There is no point in saving hard-earned money
    - If you lived so cautiously, it will mean not living at all.
    - The past is wilderness of horror.

    Please give me ideas for these topics and tell me which of them you would recommend me to write. Help would be very much appreciated! :D

    Ideas for past is a wilderness of horror.

    Horror obviously relates to the many tragedies in our collective past - wilderness to the unpredictability of events as they unfold here on Earth.

    One interesting angle is talking about how, as the past is a wilderness, it is very hard to learn from the past. I would also discuss the issue of evolution and progress, or rather, the thesis that despite technological and industrial revolutions and evolution, one could argue that mankind has progressed very little, if at all.
