By comparison, they will do anything to be able to fulfill their American Dream. Without a doubt, Walter would give up anything for wealth, since money runs the world. While Walter was having a conversation with his mother she says, “So now its life. Money. Money is life.
The way that Walter thinks is that if he had lots of money he would be better and act different, but sometimes people with too much don’t really act like they enjoy and also money never solves big problems but walter thinks it will. I believe that if you have too much money you think that everything is going so well at the moment and you don't care about spending money, but one day something could occur and you will lose all of so this just shows that no one should rely on money. In life you need to make sacrifices that could be should i spend money on an investment that could be helpful and help out my family in the future or if that I should buy something so I could help out my family instead of later. I believe that you should always help out the family when they are in need because something could happen and it could all go away. Having money should never define the person you are because you could be rich you could just be rude and not help anyone and be selfish and if you are wealthy you could have the nicest heart and be very helpful to people that are in need.
This changes him because he realizes that not everything has to go his way. The second example of Walter changing is when he loses the rest of the money. This changes him because he realizes how irresponsible and childish he was acting. The final example of
Walter’s statement tries to tell the women that he didn’t try to make the world the way it is now. Yes, he wants luxurious items for him and his wife. However, even though he seriously messed up, he’s still the man in the family and will continue to make the decisions for the
Walter further shows his false pride when he flaunts his newfound sense of power when Mr.Lindner, one of the Younger’s soon-to-be neighbors, offers him an unjust deal. Now that Walter has control over the family 's money, he considers himself the head of the family and decision maker; this plays an important role towards how Walter treats others now that he holds himself to a higher standard. This theme applies to Walter when the chairman of the “welcoming committee” (115) named Mr.Lindner pays a visit to the family a couple weeks before they 're supposed to move into their new home in Clybourne Park. During this visit, Mr.Lindner makes the offer of the Clybourne Park community “buy[ing] the house from [them] at a financial gain to [the] family” (118). Mr.Lindner’s offer represents the racial oppression and how the white community looks down upon and doesn’t want African american people dirtying their communities.
Pride, considered by some to be the worst of the seven deadly sins, can cause a person to go to extreme measures to save their reputation, this is demonstrated by the actions of Judge Danforth, Reverend Hale and John Proctor, during the Salem witch trials of 1960, in the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller. Throughout the play Judge Danforth expressed his prideful ways, in a number of situations, even when other people 's lives were on the line. When Hale suggested postponing the trial Danforth roared, “Postponement now speaks a floundering on my part; reprieve or pardon must cast doubt upon the guilt of them that died till now” (Danforth.4.1.129). Danforth knows that postponement would give people more time to confess and save there own life.
Pride is a feeling that many humans possess when they or someone they know accomplishes something. It is usually known to make someone feel good about him or herself and is seen as an optimistic mechanism. Pride can improve someone’s life and could cause someone to be happier. While pride can be a positive thing, when a person possesses too much of it, it can be a very dangerous thing and has a negative effect on the person abusing its powers.
He has to keep his emotions, thoughts and ideas to himself; his mind is cluttered but he says nothing to anyone throughout this stressful time period. He is constantly working to win over Cheryl by bringing her son a skateboard all the way from Greenland. He is dedicated to finding negative 25 and bring it back to New York as he has to jump onto a boat from a helicopter and run away from a volcano on a skateboard and he ends up at Papa John’s Pizza and nobody knows about this daring endeavor he faces. He is constantly having these daydreams that lead him off topic, but then he continues to work for that goal that he had dreamed about. In the end, Walter may have found negative 25 and had won over Cheryl, but the lesson he had learned throughout this journey will have a greater impact on his life rather than the accomplishments he achieved at LIFE magazine.
When Lindner tries to negotiate with Walter, trying to coerce him into not moving into the neighborhood, Walter rejects the offer and stares at Lindner “absolutely in the eyes” (Hansberry 148). Through the success of standing up for his family, Walter gains self-esteem, and regains the respect of his family members. His misconception of a perfect world without conflict has been shattered, and he starts to work towards a more equal society, taking one step at a time. However, success and failure aren’t the only things necessary for one to face their

He finds himself trapped in a monotonous and dull life working as a negative asset manager in Life Magazine. Walter spends his days working and looking after his family.

In the story, Walter shows his self-esteem through his daydreams. Throughout all of his dreams, he is a brave, respected, and skilled person. In one dream, he is a captain of an army. Someone in the dream stated, “I never see a man could hold his brandy like you sir,” (304). He is the opposite in reality, he is clumsy, made fun of, and is very forgetful.
