It all starts with Gatsby’s smile. Nick describes his smile as “...one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life…” (The Great Gatsby, 73). The smile immediately draws Nick in and that’s when he first begins to wear a set of rose colored glasses. “‘They 're a rotten crowd,’”
But, Lulu further goes to state “that’s not true. I was in love with the whole world and all that lived in its rainy arms” and “I’d open my mouth wide, my ears wide, my heart, and I ’d let everything inside” (272). Lulu loved people like no other and had the ability to let multiple people into her life to try and love her back. She “loved what she saw” and she was proud to have gotten it (273).
Gladwell first introduces three psychologists, Anders Ericsson and two colleagues, who conducted research about the successes of violinists. When violinists were questioned how much they practiced, it was clear that many practiced a lot longer than others did. Ericsson discovers that the violinists that practice the most end up best in their class (Gladwell 11). He then continues, but instead researches that successful pianists had the same pattern as the violinists in the way that when they were growing up, they practiced a lot more than amateurs. In Ericsson's research, he never came across any "naturals" who barely worked and magically made their way up to the top, also no one who practiced more than everyone and still was not in the top (Gladwell 12).
In the poem Beowulf, the character Beowulf had a desire for fame and earthly rewards. From driving five great giants into chains and hunting and killing monsters out of the ocean one by one, Beowulf will often boast in himself about his greatest accomplishments. However, Beowulf’s boasting and thirst for fame contradicts with the Christians beliefs of pride and eternal reward. Christians believe that a man should humble himself and never boast in his own accomplishments but always boast in the power of the Almighty. Often in the poem Beowulf, Beowulf has boasted in himself and his own accomplishments.
Jeremiah and Roxanna had much love for each other and was a lovely love story. Rebecca and Isaac were described,as a love story in the article written by Bible Gateway authors. One similarity between the two husbands is that in Genesis 26:18-25 it describes how Issac would do anything to avoid a fight. The same situation happened to Jeremiah, where his former boss had just fired him and was inadvertently attempting to start a fight, where Jeremiah responded by “touching Holgren’s face and pulled away. It was the oddest little slap you ever saw.”
The Lord knew that he could do it, but Beowulf wanted to show him so he could prove himself. To be a hero you must be unselfish. At the end of this epic poem Beowulf shows how unselfish he is. “to the everlasting Lord of all, the king of Glory, I give thanks that I be had this treasure here in front of me, that I have been thus allowed to leave my people so well endowed on the day I die..” (411-415).
Victor describes Elizabeth as “the purest creature of Earth” and “the living spirit of love”; his best friend Clerval was “a boy of singular talent and fancy”; Justine and William as “the most amiable and benevolent of all creatures”, and “a smiling babe full of innocence and joy”.

In an often bewildering plot within the play, identities are often not easy to follow, Jack 's engagement to Gwendolen cannot be acknowledged by her (Oscar 2007). This because Gwendolen has found out that Jack had no parents and was found as a baby abandoned in a handbag in Victoria Station. Later in the plot, Jack and Algernon are identified to be individually consulting Dr. Chasuble because they want their names changed to "Ernest." It is surprising to realize that Algernon is also in love with Cecily. However, Cecily has also revealed her desire that she is in love with someone named Ernest.

Suddenly one of her personalities said he fell on a pitch fork and died in front of her eyes. They claimed Sybil was in love and her mother did not give the emotional support she needed to cope with her loss.

On the other hand, Frankenstein was able to obtain love much easier than the creature. Although it was easier for Victor, he shows his desire for love in a letter he wrote to his father; “My dear father, re-assure yourself. I love my cousin tenderly and sincerely. I never saw any woman who excited; as Elizabeth does, my warmest admiration and affection my future hopes and prospects are entirely bound up in the expectation of our union” (Shelley 108). Here Frankenstein’s love for his Elizabeth is displayed and characterizes his desire for love.
