As Martel takes the reader back to Pondicherry, he describes Pi’s innocent and tranquil upbringings. He is largely influenced by God and his parents while he goes through a unique spiritual journey with numerous faiths. Furthermore, he was relatively naïve to the fact that animals – especially predatory – are extremely dangerous. Also, Pi doesn’t realize how difficult the brawl against nature and spiritual devotion can be until the lion’s share of the story begins when the Tsimtsum sinks. Paralleled with the second phase, Pi’s youthful innocence and inexperience with such devastating circumstances lead him to believe that he will be rescued soon and that his parents are still alive.
For a moment Elie begins to understand the merit of this argument and when a guard advises him to keep his father’s rations for himself, he agrees thinking, “he was right.

However, Elie’s true morals quickly resurface and he returns to his role of devoted son recanting, “it was only for a fraction of a second but it left me feeling guilty. I ran to get some soup and brought it to my father”(111).

Everyday throughout the book, the man chooses to wake up, dress his son, and give whatever he can to the young boy. It would be easier to take the food and divide it evenly, but that’s not what he did. It would be easier to take the baby roasting on the fire, but that’s not what they did. The man was not about the easy, he was about his son. The Son chose morals, and others over himself.
Thesis: The well known and award winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee should continue to stay on the freshman reading list for years to come because of Atticus Finch’s wise lessons about courage, empathy, and equality do not only impact his kids, but many readers can learn and apply them everyday life as well. One of the most memorable lessons taught by Atticus is about courage, where he explains that courage is presented through thoughtful actions and perseverance, not with objects, such as weapons. One example of this is when Atticus’ had shot the rabid hound in chapter ten. When an ill and dangerous dog was found wandering the streets of Maycomb, someone had to shoot it.
In his Autobiography, Benjamin Franklin stated, “So convenient a thing it is to be a reasonable creature, since it enables one to find or make a reason for everything one has a mind to do.” By this, Franklin meant that reasoning enables people to justify all of their actions. Justification, in this case, is rationalization. In his Autobiography, Franklin writes about his being a vegetarian, due to the reason that killing animals, fish in this instance, was unprovoked murder and therefore he would not eat them. However, when he smelt fish cooking, he remembered how he used to love fish, and he had a desire to eat it after he had smelt it.

Just reading the title of In Defense of Food (2008) by Michael Pollan gave me some hope that he would tell us that enjoying our food without guilt is all we need to know. In a sense he does just that, but first he defines what food is and is not and then goes on to explain how to find, and enjoy, this food. My first question is why people feel the need for someone to tell them what to eat. In fact, Pollan himself asks this question. Throughout the book, he spends a great deal of time defending why he wrote the book.
