Moral Education You are capable of knowing the difference between right and wrong, “The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience” (105). Lessons on morality have a big impact on our everyday lives. We are constantly put into situations where there are good and bad choices. We must be able to pick the choice that would lead us down the better path, but sometimes we must experience opposition in order to learn. In Harper Lee’s, To kill a Mockingbird, through the lessons that Atticus gives to his children, Jem and Scout, we see that moral education is very important because it allows the characters to go through the process of trial and error which helps them fully develop and change for the better.
Holden tends to hate confrontation, throughout the novel and always is about to do something but chooses in the end to not. Caulfield is his own antagonist he craves company but takes pride in his idea of people being too “phony” that he pushes everyone away, he takes his own happiness away and alienates himself from people who love and want to help him. When attending Pencey prep Caulfield spent his time hating everyone and did not socialize with others. He talks about how everyone when going to football games all hang out but he never mentions himself going to
“Certain things, they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.” A quote from the Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger, the quote is said by Holden Caulfield. Holden is the protagonist of this hard hitting story about growing up and wanting to hold onto childhood innocence. It doesn’t sugar coat the struggles of growing up and dealing with depression.
Finally he puts Cordelia’s love above anything else to such a point that he would rather live in prison with her than rule as a king again. From this we feel sympathy as we can see the endeavor to change which earns respect from others. On the other hand we have Holden Caulfield. I don’t think Holden does learn from his mistakes as he is oblivious to what others believe and his maturity doesn’t allow him to see past this. I think this as towards the end he says he will apply himself at his new school, but he isn’t sure.This shows me that he hasn’t learnt from his mistakes.
Holden is basically saying here that he left his old school not because he is not smart but it was because he could not stand the people there. Holden always blames his surroundings but never once does he blame himself for flunking all the classes and getting kicked out of the schools. Holden also blames others for his relationship troubles. When Sally rejected Holden’s proposal, Holden blamed Sally for flirting with some other guy. For both of the incidents described, Holden blamed others for them and he did not think that either of them was his fault.
As they work to show their children what it is to be an adult they are teaching them as well on how to be an active member of society. As a child we watch our parents and we learn from them. We learn how to cook, how to clean, how to raise children, how to do right from wrong, how to work, how to do things we don't want to, how to be happy, how to have fun, and many more things.
And when he stands up by disobeying, he is faced with punishments. Another way Cory’s possession of courage is shown is when he is acceptant of punishments that are directed to him. Troy reached the peak when his son didn’t quit so he never signed the papers allowing Cory to scout out and he also spoke to the coach. This is sort of a form of punishment because he took away something Cory was looking forward to, something he really wanted to do and that thing was then stripped from him making him miserable. On the inside, Cory must have felt anger, and betrayal, but he also would have felt accepting of the decision his father made, because his father was looking after him.
In the beginning of the chapter, Holden arrives at his former teacher’s house from Elkton Hills School, Mr. Ackley who cares deeply for Holden. Holden respects Mr. Ackley because he does not treat him like one of students like Mr. Spencer does. Mr. Ackley gives Holden advice on why he should apply himself into his studies. He sees something in Holden that is different than any other student he has taught and tries to tell Holden that his studies is just not a conformity but a way to develop his ideas. Mr. Ackley believes his constant fall is because he has given up from the world and wants to isolate himself from the environment he is in.
He strongly disliked fighting but as time went on, he began to participate in them despite thinking, “There isn’t any real good reason for fighting except self-defense” (Hinton 137). In contrast, Socs like Cherry Valance and Randy began to act as if they fit the stereotype that was given to the Socs in order to keep their

1) In this quote, the term being used is metaphor because Life and Game are two completely different things but they are being compared to each other like if they are similar. 2) I think the author’s purpose for using this term is that he explains that Holden feels alone because he doesn’t feel like he is winning. 3) This quote revolves around the overall theme because it shows that Holden is isolated from everybody around him. 4) • I really like this dislike this idea because Holden is wrong you need to play according to the rules to win not be on the winning side. • I think this idea seems important because it is an inspiration quote to live by even though Holden doesn’t believe it; this is how life goes it is in reality.
