What Makes Happiness Happiness? Everyone defines happiness differently, but everyone needs happiness. The book Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse talks about how Siddhartha finds happiness through many ways. He leaves home and his friend, Govinda, to find enlightenment. He starves himself, he learns love, he thinks of suicide… Fortunately, he meets a ferryman, who becomes his best friend also his “teacher”, and helps him find the ultimate way to achieve enlightenment.
The characters of both stories made some good and bad choices for their wishes; wouldn 't you! In the fictional short story ‘What of This Goldfish, Would you wish’, Sergei Goralick, a Russian hermit living in Jaffa, was fishing on one of his valued late night fishing trips, when he caught a magical goldfish that granted him three wishes. He uses his first two wishes in order to help his friends, but is hesitant to use his last. Sergei knows that when he uses his third wish, he has to let his goldfish, who is now his best friend, free. One day, a boy named Yonatan comes to Sergei 's home, and asks him questions about what he would wish for.
The storyteller in James Joyce 's "Araby" has a hopeful and sentimental perspective of the world, as found in how his creative energy flees with him, in the long run conveying him to the carnival. The kid demonstrates his optimism and sentimental propensities as he depicts setting off to the commercial center with his close relative. In his creative ability, we discover implications to the sentiment of old Arabia much like the saints from stories of King Arthur and his court at Camelot, and his commitment to Mangan 's sister, so extremely like Lancelot 's dedication to Guinevere. The kid 's optimism is found in his conviction that a young lady more youthful than he may restore his affections, and that he is in certainty a young fellow of such devotion that he can advance into obscure parts of the city to bring back a token of his love for her. We can gather that he trusts Mangan 's sister will probably treasure any little blessing he may buy to make her vibe as though she has gone by Araby as opposed to missing it for a religious withdraw.
The simulacrum of Rosebud, allows Kane to remind himself when he felt loved by his family and was happy without and material wealth. The change in camera angle from a high angle to eye height in this scene shows us the instant shift from Kane’s childhood to adulthood. This spontaneous shift enhances the idea of his maladjusted ego. I personally agree, do
The father and son may be getting older and spending less time together, but their love as father and son fortifies their relationship and prevents it from completely changing, which is exemplified when the father allows his son to use his rod to go fishing. The father’s rod is said to be “the only extravagance his father had had in his whole life” (45-46), meaning that the rod is of great significance to the father. Almost a whole paragraph is about how important the rod is to the father, and that’s not a detail included for decoration in Trumbo’s writing. Knowing that the father values his rod and invests time and money in it to
He is able to fill in for the role of a father figure, and teach Chiron about life. When Blue teaches Chiron how to swim, it feels like it’s an allegory telling Chiron that he’ll either sink or swim, but if he just relaxes he’ll keep his head above water, and with a little effort he can fight the current that is life. As the scene goes on Chiron starts to thrive in the water, despite the fact that the skys start to darken, and the waves grow in size. The speed of the extra diegetic music in this shot is key, as the violin picks up pace, the waves grow larger, and the camera
Voltaire picaresque novella, Candide, tells a story of a man in seeks of love and adventure. Along the way Candied runs into a philosopher named, Pangloss. Pangloss believes that “all is best in this world” (7) and things happen for a reason. Candide trust Pangloss theory and relates it into his own life and adventures he endures.

For the first time in the novel the boy wanted to accompany the man as he investigated a site, but the man refused to take the boy with him because “someone has to take care of things.”(223) Earlier in the novel, the man was always portrayed as the more responsible one and allotted menial tasks to the boy; however, this shows that the man considers the boy to be more mature and worthy of greater responsibility. The man senses that the boat might present some horrors and addresses this concern by involving the boy in his mission as the lookout, an important player in most ventures. Even after the thoroughly searching the boat for items, the man does not panic when the boy loses the pistol and instead of blaming the boy for his error the man takes some of the blame as most mature equals do. Similarly, the man appears physically different to signify the mental attitude shift towards the boy. As soon as the man emerged from the boat the boy “stood up in alarm,” because he did not realize it was actually the man, McCarthy included this to show the change in mental state of the man as a whole and towards the boy.
Most of the time, the characters we all know and love are considered dynamic characters. A dynamic character is one who undergoes an important change through the course of the story. Throughout the story these characters face different circumstances and learn important life lessons in the process. Dynamic characters usually extract a new meaning about life through these experiences. “Of course such a drastic change in one's circumstances (whether good fortune or bad) might motivate a change in one's outlook on life.” (Lyman A. Baker) These characters make it easier for the reader to connect with the literature and better understand it.
We see it through the characters actions and how they are able to face the catastrophic situation. Courage is very significant not only in the novel but also to myself and other people this day because it shows us how we are able to find courage when we need it and do surprising things in a scary situation. Courage is likewise something that influences and impacts us sometimes in our life
