Holden seems to not realize that he is an adult now but is attached in this childish world. Holden likes the way things were the same in his childhood and desires to stop time and remain in his childhood. Therefore, the museum symbolizes childhood, Holden's world that he wishes to live in, and determination for his life not to change. The museum is Holden's way of saying that he does not want any change in his life because of the way things in the museum are the same from back when he was a child. Holden remembers everything in the museum which brings back the fun memories made going through the museum when he was just a child.

At the beginning, he thought if he embraces all the “ standard ideas” that are held by his father, he will feel appreciative and pleasant. However, it is totally in an adverse consequence. In virtue of the behavior that he wakes “ the Polack” from the nightmares, it discloses his bravery of withstanding his father’s extreme theory and his rationally to balance the influences that are imposed by others ( from his father, the pulp mill men, Leka). According to the transformation of Stephen, the writer affirmed his idea that no matter how huge or how compelled the situation is, individuals are the sole persons that can alter their lives.
Just like Abel, Adam is an obedient, peaceful, and independant man. Growing up, he had to learn how to take care of himself due to the fact that his mother had died young and his father did not show much attention to him. Although he grew up in a home with a devilish brother and a manipulative father, he somehow developed into a character with good instincts. The fact that he had to take care of himself and not have anyone to depend on was a huge factor to that. Steinbeck writes, “When a child first catches adults out—when it first walks into his grave little
When Holden does not “say or do anything,” it shows him discovering that nativity must be gowned out of at a particular age and maturity level. Therefore, he will not interfere with children learning to fall and then getting back up. Everyone must learn persistence and to never give up in their life. Children “trying to grab for the gold ring” symbolizes striving for maturity and development. Attaining this philosophy, Holden opens his mind to the wonders of growing up aiding him to be a role model
Atticus Finch is portrayed as great parent in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The way Atticus Finch acts at home and on the streets provide a good role model for Jem and Scout.

REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS: YOU NEED TO COPY AND PASTE THE QUOATION WITH YOUR RESPONSE. (-) 4. In J.D. Salinger 's novel "Catcher in the Rye", the protagonist Holden Caulfield says these lines to his younger sister Phoebe when she questions him on the topic of his likes and what he wishes to do when he is an adult. Holden ideally, but unrealistically states that he wants to be "the catcher in the rye and all", a reliable figure to "catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff."
They were naïve and they became so mindlessly loyal to the world. For example, when Equality 7-2521 easily escaped from the Palace of Corrective Detention, this evince that his peers were so obedient that they will not even exert their individual wills against the Council by attempting to escape from prison. This additionally shows the amount of power the Council had over the society.

Holden Caulfield struggles to come to terms with the loss of childhood innocence; however, Holden experiences self-reflection and understands he cannot change everything. Holden possesses a strong inability to accept the loss of childhood innocence. After Phoebe asks what Holden wants to be when he grows up, he explains, “What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff… I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all.” (Salinger, 191) Holden wishes to protect children from “falling off the cliff”, a metaphor for the inevitable transition to adulthood.

Therefore, he would much rather have children stay young and pure for the remainder of their lives, instead of growing up.
Later, Scout finds out that the only thing mockingbirds do is make beautiful music and should never be punished for it.

Atticus’s responsibility is a characteristic that makes him an admired
The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody 'd move.” (Salinger 65) He loved things the way they were and he hated change, he hated that he had to grow up and have responsibilities. Holden did have some
