As a result of this many forgot their purpose to be alive. Wiesel shows that the need to survive those conditions was only supported by a sense of duty to one’s family to be there. When Stein says “Were it not for them, I would give up,”(45) he shows that their survival is the only thing keeping him upright.

In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie’s faults made her dependent emotionally towards men, but independent when finding her own happy ending throughout the book. From The Odyssey, Calypso desperately tried to find love and make Odysseus stay, but her flaws of attachment and having a higher level of authority over Odysseus in their relationship kept her from achieving real love with someone.

I believe Tadeusz is a righteous person due to his extreme effort to help save the Abrahamers. Even though Tadeusz believed it was a “human obligation” to save the Jews, I believe he is one of the Tzadikim. He does not realize how much he is helping Jews by hiding them and risking his life. None of the commentaries we learn give Noah enough credit for what they could do today or in other generations. Although Tadeusz generation was not one of the best, he still probably would do other righteous things in other generations.
