I had survived the fever but still felt weak” (Anderson 156). Mattie helped me learn a lot about life, and that it isn’t always easy. In conclusion, Mattie was faced with a lot of adversity but she never gave in and she kept on ploughing ahead even when times were tough. Mattie is a very strong character that faced a lot of challenges and that’s why I think she stood out from the rest of the
In doing so the characters were punished for not conforming to both the school of Welton and their parents. In the movie many characters showed traits of transcendentalism, for example Neil Perry showed many signs of nonconformity towards his father by not listening to his command to become a doctor. Knox Overstreet showed during the film human potential by trying to believe in himself and trying to get a girl from another school. Finally Todd Anderson who experienced truth through observation by attending the Dead Poets meeting and later by joining the activities the Society does. If you look hard enough in any book,movie, or play you will always find some form of transcendentalism every single time and that will never change.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
Thus the theme in the book is in order to be rewarded, one must persevere. This message is found throughout the book since the protagonist, Buck is always facing hardships and in the end he gets
When I was little I was challenged a lot by my brothers to wrestle and being the only girl I was stubborn and couldn’t turn down a challenge. As stubborn as I was I was also, in a way, a very fragile or sensitive kid. To put it simpler, I cried a lot. Whenever I found myself in a position I couldn’t get out of I always called for my mom. I wanted to fight, yes that is true, but I wanted to fight to win, if I found myself loosing I cried for help.
However, they do continue to fight through their difficulties. Ultimately, the stories show a reader that people can only cope with a certain amount of hardship before they begin to be permanently altered, despite the appearance of coping on the

They all wanted to free themselves from fears cold embrace and provide that knowledge on to the next person. That knowledge is something most human’s lack, an ability to govern are selves, thoughts, and principles. A repeating conflict that haunts every nation, kingdom, state, town and city throughout the world in ever time period recorded. In the end, the people who deserve a spot in the history books are the ones realize the problems and act as the hotline to express that
If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This is just one example of the internal conflict going on endlessly within himself. When thinking of family, there are good times and bad times. When experiencing the moments that are extremely difficult for Elie and his father, he often thinks how great life would be if he could just get rid of his father’s dead weight. One evening when Elie’s father is very ill, the had of the block approaches Elie and tells him, “‘Don’t forget your in a concentration camp.
Elie’s father was unable to march in step, which caused a problem for him because everywhere they went it was in step, “This presented Franek with the opportunity to torment him and, on a daily basis, to thrash him savagely. Left,right: he punched him. Left, right: he slapped him,” (Wiesel 55). Throughout Elie’s time at the concentration camps he went through many selections, this is when it is
In real life there are many hardships that face us everyday, making our lives more difficult. Hardships are something that happens in everyone 's life, they teach us valuable lessons that make us wiser by giving us a different perspective on life.

They also relate
I faced and continue to face many different challenges in my daily life, those that every teenager faces, and also those that have been presented to me because of the kind of environment I placed myself in. It 's difficult trying to balance everything, it is for every young adult, but FUMA taught me to be disciplined and responsible, so I can overcome adversity and excel at what I do. Fork Union helped me learn to make the most of my time, and after some much needed thought, I decided to try applying for an after school job instead of competing athletically anymore. It was hard at first and I didn 't know if I could keep it up but I 've worked there for two years now, alongside my schools stressful five point grading scale and daily personal
