“Old money and riches are used a few times about Gatsby.” (Maia Samkanashvili) (39). The quote is stating that Maia believes that white is a key factor of what old money is and who is it involved with most. Fitzgerald tell us that white is a part of old money. “It wasn’t until then that I connected this Gatsby with the officer in her white car.”(Fitzgerald 77). An officer in the Great Gatsby is considered more successful because that was a better job for someone to have back in the 1920’s.
He worked at a cash register at a small suburban towns store about 5 minutes away from the beach, right in the middle of town. “ In walks these three girls in nothing but bathing suits ” ( Updike 1013 ). One is the obvious leader ( Sammy mentally nicknames her Queenie ) because she is the leader/queen of her two friends that just seem to follow her around and stand in her shadow. They came into the store, looked around, went and asked Mcmahon at the meat counter something, got the item they needed and then came up to purchase the one item. That one item her mom requested her to get was Kingfish Fancy Herring snacks in pure sour cream.
Often he would give them bread, as some children were poor, in-exchange for their guidance in the matter. During his errand runs he would meet with these young men for his lessons, he also used this time to read books which developed his reading skills further.

After mastering these four letters he took to the streets; telling young boys he could write then persuaded them to bet him.

"I have begun this letter five times and torn it up five times. I keep seeing your face, which is also the face of your father and my brother" (1) indicates that Baldwin put time and effort into making this work as heartfelt as possible to make his message clear. The writing style he used in this message is one that shows that he is familiar with his audience, his nephew. At the same time, this language style is familiar because this letter can be used to address African-American teens other than his nephew James. Baldwin 's language in A Letter to My Nephew shows that he is pacifying his nephew for being born into the environment that he is in, but at the same time passing the blame onto the United States for creating such an environment.
Percy Gryce, for example, is greatly desired simply because of his immense wealth. The Trenors, the richest couple of the novel are able to host a number of social events and Judy Tenor’s hosting “backed by Mr. Tenor’s bank-account, almost always assured her triumph...” (Wharton 38). These events gain the respect of every one of the characters. Because of this connection, money can also be linked to power. Bertha Dorset uses this power to disgrace Lily in order to distract from her adultery in book two and risk losing her reputation.
Throughout his stay he learned the basic concepts of love, friendship and companionship. The creature would listen to the family read, “This reading had puzzled me extremely at first; but, by degrees, I discovered that he uttered many of the same sounds when he read, as when he talked.” (Shelley 79) The creature learned the small vocabulary he left with from the cottagers. After his experience with the cottagers and after reading the books “Paradise Lost”, Plutarch’s Lives” and “Sorrows of Werter” the creature learned human nature and the rise and fall of empires, but also they reminded him of how different he was and that he was cut off from mankind. These three characters are self-educated by varying degrees and with equally outside
Hosseini utilizes the language of innocence and fear in order for the reader to better understand Amir’s moral growth. The beginning of The Kite Runner accentuates the childlike consciousness of Amir. Hosseini’s use of rudimentary grammatical structures and childish language such as “they clapped for a long time.” and “he never told on me” reflect to the reader the child’s perspective. Amir affectionately refers to his father as “Baba” the colloquial language of Amir further serves to underscore his childlike consciousness. The language of innocence is replaced by the language of fear and anxiety.

All five relate to each other because Our Father was working on his plan to restore humanity. From the first agreement with Noah until the final agreement that began with David and lead to Jesus, Our Father set in motion the redemption plan we have today. The main theme of each agreement was that his children obey him and follow his commands in faith. Each of the previous agreements lead up to the New agreement which is fulfilled by his son the Messiah. This paper detailed the five agreements Jehovah made with his people, who they were for, and how they related to each other and still today are important.
Generally in politics, people support those who promise to support them. With this being said, I feel as though the artist portrayed this in a clever way. Not only are the businessmen, soldiers and sailors literally supporting McKinley in the image, yet they are supporting him in a political sense as well.

I feel as though the overall message of the piece is that with the support of common citizens, McKinley was able to leave behind a successful economy for his people.

I was wondering along the lake, when I met the greatest bunch of water droplets around. I guess you could say they were my homies. We all loved to dance together, especially to ‘Watch Me’. We all whipped and Nae Naed, and when we felt crazy enough, we sometimes even hit the quan. We were the greatest bunch of friends, but Yolanda fell into the pool of thirsty water drinking chickens.
“Ka-plunk”. We drop the anchor, stopping the boat in shallow sandy area where we can spend the afternoon. With little hesitation we are in the water.

Sandwiches in the cooler, our parents make their way into the water too.
