He would go back home. I admire him for his courage and noble ideas, because he was confident. He wasn’t timid, he talk to every individual he had met. He wasn’t a bad guy. He made mistakes but that’s what makes us human like I said

On the other hand Victor is a tough kid that never got over the fact that his father left his family when he was young. After ten years of extreme anger, Victor gets news that his father has died. He is given the opportunity to travel to Phoenix, Arizona in order to collect his father ashes and personal belongings. Victor does not have much money and is
Do you ever tire? God, look at you, iron is what you are made of. Here we all are, half dead with weariness falling asleep over the cars and you say no landing-no firm island earth where we could make a quiet supper”(pg;839 L162-168). Many storms came and went so instead of wanting to stay there for two days, they stayed for two months. Eurylochus got what he deserved because Odysseus told them to swear they wouldn 't eat the cattle and they all told Odysseus they wouldn 't.
One such person was Carl McCunn who was stranded in the wilderness and ended up taking his own life to avoid slowly starving to death. One of his friends stated that, “...Carl was too laid back. He was a party boy.”(84) This situation had a similar end to Chris’ story there a a bit of a difference between the two men. Chris was able to survive four months in the wilderness before dying, with very few resources to begin with. He also didn’t take his own life because, we can assume, he assumed that was the coward’s way out.
He had lost the urge to eat ages ago( around the time they had to bury Tinas body so that the animals would not get to it), but his eyes drooped every second, desperate for rest. His best friend Connor was in the ams state as him. Connors pants were ripped in several places when he hd fallen multiple times, tripping over the roots that struck out of the ground. His other friend, Maya, was the only one with the sane mind. Walking ahead of the two
Into the Wild, a book by Jon Krakauer and a film by Sean Penn, is the story of a young man named Christopher McCandless, or as other people knew him as “Alex Supertramp.” McCandless came from a wealthy family and graduated from Emory University as a top athlete. Instead of pursuing a career, he gave his money to charity, then he set out on a journey to Alaska, to find happiness. Eventually he perished on August 18, 1992 (aged 24). McCandless died in the Alaskan wilderness, due to starvation. He lived in the wilderness for about three months, his body was discovered by a hunter looking for shelter, on September 6, 1992.
First off there is the fact that he is faithful. Though many years have passed since he left home he has never stopped trying to get back, proving the statement to be true. Second, he is loyal. Though his crew members were captured many times he always went to rescue them. For instance when he saved them from the Lotus Eaters or when he went to get them from Circe.
If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This is just one example of the internal conflict going on endlessly within himself. When thinking of family, there are good times and bad times. When experiencing the moments that are extremely difficult for Elie and his father, he often thinks how great life would be if he could just get rid of his father’s dead weight. One evening when Elie’s father is very ill, the had of the block approaches Elie and tells him, “‘Don’t forget your in a concentration camp.
McCandless planned to survive in Alaska by living off the land while Krakauer wanted to be the first one to climb the Devil’s Thumb. What happened instead was that McCandless died at an early age, whilst Krakauer barely made it to tell the tale; proving nothing of value came from their journeys. While life on the road can offer solace to individuals who have struggled in their lives, it is unfathomable to think that the wilderness will offer them any embrace to their ambitions; therefore it should not be pursued as it leads to family issues and ignorant behavior. Life on the road can provide one with a sense of independence from the confines of society. For example, Chris McCandless decided to escape the societal
Chris McCandless resents the world of materialism from which he was born into and in an effort to separate himself from this life he walks away from it. He wasn’t involved much with society and had problems with his family which made him to start his journey to Alaska. In most other cases people stay and deal with their problems. McCandless on the other hand ran away in the most dangerous of possible ways, by totally abandoning his sheltered existence into one that had no safety nets. "Two years he walks the earth.
The author Cormac McCarthy just seemed to give us an abundance of tragedy and violence as the father of the boy keeps trying to tell him that they’ll make it even though everything seemed to be bleak. Anybody who used to be anybody was no longer important anymore, no matter what your occupation used to be in the old world. This newer world seems to be extremely backwards and even one of my favorite quotes in the book proves it, “You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” It shows that nothing in the old world matters since all you can seem to remember are the dreadful things in order for you to know that in this time and age the situation are dangerous, which makes you push yourself in order to survive. Since their new world was post- apocalyptic, there is no more relying on law enforcement agencies or in humanity either. When things begin to get rough, people take to extreme measures to make sure they can survive even if it means turning to cannibalism to stay alive.
Tragically, despite at the end of their journeys Timothy and Chris started to realize their mistakes, it was too late for them to turn back. Two days before his estimated death, Chris wrote in his journal a controversial line: “Happiness only real when shared”(Chapter 18, Krakauer). He took the journey to escape from people and his past. Whole his life he chose to be a loner, avoiding intimate attachments and disregarding other people’s feelings. This entry is an evidence that he re-evaluated himself and was ready to go back to the human community and face his fears that he was trying to hide from in the wilderness.
I have an infinite amount of love for my friends and will not hesitate to tell them when they look good or when they do something impressive. Slim is very nice and never puts his friends down or discourages them, he praises them instead, like a good friends does. I always try to be nice to others and give them compliments whenever I notice something I like about them. Another reason Slim and I are similar is because he has to make decisions. I do not just think twice when making a decision, I think many times before I decide what is the best choice to make.
“People keep telling me life goes on, but, to me that’s the saddest part.” I think this person is trying to say they would rather be with the person they lost. It 's kinda like when someone is forced to keep going in they’re sorrow that they wanted to do more before they lost that person a deepening feeling that never stops and never goes away, where there 's always a moment of triumph but its short lived because they tell themselves they can’t move on, so little jimmy sits there in his bed feeling like a sinking pillow that has a permanent indent that he can 't get rid of so he’s forced to deal with it little jimmy feels like he’s forced through life and he just has to “live with it”, and learn to live with it. Imagine living like that do
