Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.
Both of these journeys were interesting, but Adam 's journey has a more positive impact on people.

Christopher McCandless was an anomaly at best, he was the once in a lifetime kind of person that you couldn’t forget if he tried, “Many aspects of Chris’s personality baffled his parents. He could be generous and caring to a fault, but he had a darker side as well, characterized by monomania, impatience, and unwavering self absorption, qualities that seemed to intensify through his college years” (Pg 120). He had philosophies and questions about life, yet the courage to go find those answers to his questions was what stood out and maybe he didn’t find all those answers but he found enough to die in
No character in Twain’s Huckleberry Finn is flawless, but Jim clearly shines through as a hero throughout the novel because of his kindness, nobility, and loyalty. Initially just seen as a fool and used as a source for humor, Jim’s character depth develops throughout the book, and his humanity and goodness frequently dominates the story. Through his friendship with Huck we can see his heroic nature, even in small and seemingly insignificant moments. One example of this occurs when Huck describes the shifts that he and Jim would take at night to keep watch: “I went to sleep, and Jim didn’t call me when it was my turn.
He acts with great loyalty to George but has no concept of the word. Lennie is a large, lumbering, childlike migrant worker who is kindhearted and gentle. He has unimaginable strength but doesn’t quite understand just how strong he is. Lennie completely depends on George.
This does not mean that their lives are completely absent of discomfort though because in its absence, a person would not learn many of life’s valuable lessons. I’m not sure if I totally agree with this one though because I always think of the Kenyans that my friend Joshua Sawe (an African native himself) describes. They live off of very little in comparison to American standards and are still incredibly happy and freely give what they do have. Although there are always exceptions, most do not steal what they need from those around them and instead work hard for what they want.
Even though he is a sinner, Carton is not a malevolent person. He refuses to pursue his dream of a better life because he knows that it would bring nothing but disgrace upon Lucy, the woman whom he loves. He often visits the Manette household, always “moody and morose” while he is there (Dickens 148). He can a pleasant person when he wishes to be, but the cloud of caring for nothing, which overshadowed him with a fatal darkness, was very rarely pierced by the light within him” (Dickens 148). This quote makes it clear to the reader that Sydney does have some light inside of him, but it is hidden beneath a facade of carelessness.
Edward Rochester is a talented man; what he lacks in beauty he makes up for in other areas. Jane describes Rochester’s appearance as having “stern features and a heavy brow; his eyes and eyebrows looked ireful and thwarted” (Bronte 214). Even though Jane is no beauty herself, she still critiques others appearance, but she does not judge them for it. After his bad first impression and ugliness, Rochester decides to treat Jane with the highest level of respect that she has seen in her entire life. After some light conversations, Rochester has found himself in love with Jane because of her mind.
Even though he never specifically answers his questions, Weiner hints that happiness comes from the abstract alone because Bhutan and Iceland who pride themselves in the abstract are the happier countries in comparison to America and Moldova who focus on the concrete. Through this questioning and investigating, he realizes “what’s on the inside is often more impressive than what’s on the outside” which ultimately allows him to make the suggestions he
What is a leader, a leader is someone who has a vission and passion and should not be afraid of any problems, insted, he should know how to defeat it. I didnt know how to defeat it, no one did. We got lost, caught up in the hype, glory, and the relentless pressure to stay on top, insted of working for that championship ring, we were just waiting for someone to put on for us.
No one took the time to recognize his desires of freedom and solitude, which is why many were shocked when they found him missing. Merriam-Webster defines life as an overall vision of or attitude toward life and the purpose of life. McCandless’ view on life was extraordinary and he only lived the life he thought was suitable; he appreciated the underrated belongings of life itself and longed for a greater good. One may judge his decisions on foolhardy behavior, but McCandless knew what he wanted and went for it without reflection on others’ notions. “it is easy, when you are young, to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough, it is your God given right to have it” (Krakauer 155) In any case, Chris McCandless was recklessly bold and did what most could not.
Sometimes the hardest things to do are what is best for you. This is evident in Anne Taylor’s short story Average Waves in Unprotected Waters. In the story, Arnold is a boy with mental disabilities who lives with his mother. His father left them when he was born so his mother is left to take care and provide for him by herself. As he gets older it is harder for her to take care of him so even though she loves him very much and it is a hard decision, she is forced to put Arnold in a mental institution.
