Shaun’s quote says that he thinks “Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time. He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.

Tim not only is faithful at home but also is very open about it on the football field, praying before every game and talking about his faith during interviews. “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.

Many people in the world could be Christians but could be to scared to stand up to their faith if anyone turns it down.
Crispin: the Cross of Lead Saint Giles is not only the patron saint of beggars and cripples, he’s also the patron saint of Crispin. Saint Giles was a simples saint, a protector, and is a very appropriate saint for Crispin to look up to. To give some background knowledge, Saint Giles was a simple man. He lived his life in solitude because he learned that his blood was of nobility, and he did not want to be noble.
When Crispin finds a living person, he got the urge to go up to him. He is forced to promise to stay with this new man, Bear, and that was his first, with many to follow, discovery that he madekes. In order for Bear to keep Crispin in a servile way, he made Crispin swear “on the sacred name of Jesus” (chp. 18 pg 81). Also, when Bear discovers that Crispin has a cross made of lead, Bear demands to see it, and he reads the writing on the side, refusing to tell Crispin what it said.
Meeting Bear helps Crispin transition into finding his new identity because he is telling Crispin to treat him more as his equal than his elder. For example on page 94 it says, “‘And don’t call me sir, he snarled.’ ‘Why?’ ‘It’s servile’ ‘But you’re my master’ His answer was a growl.”
"The very essence of civil liberty certainly consists in the rights of every individual to claim the protection of the law, whenever he receives an injury,” said Chief Justice John Marshall. The laws during this time did not protect Crispin. Some would agree that Crispin should have killed John Aycliffe. and some would disagree. Crispin should have killed John for three reasons, because young Crispin was in danger, cruel John was trying to attack him, and Crispin could save his friend Bear.
