To most people, family values mean everything. Taking care of one another, loving one another, protecting one another; all things a family would do for one another.

No I am brave.” In the second quote, Coraline is trying to calm herself down and conquering her fears to save her real parents. Without thinking or having to save her parents, she wouldn’t be able to conquer her fears and save them.

She states that, "I would give up the unessential; I would give my money, I would give my life for my children; but I wouldn't give myself” (Chopin 47). Edna demonstrates how important her identity is to her, so much to say that she wouldn’t give it up even for her children, which was very defiant of mothers during her time period. Edna claims that the unessential aspects of her life include money as and her own life, which are, in comparison to her identity, rather concrete concepts. However, Edna focuses on the abstract notion of identity, which could be a subtle reference to her personal desires of being an artist, which Edna develops within the story once she meets Mademoiselle Reisz and learns of the courage needed to be the artist she wants to

She acted unkind to her mother when she saw this and asked why she was doing this. When the mother confessed what she has done the elder daughter had to face up to the abuse she has put her mother through. Even though the daughter was being unruly and cruel the mother stood proud and strong and did what was needed to provide and feed her children. In conclusion, I believe this is a message of hope and love, not of poverty. The two daughters will one day be mothers, if they are lucky and might have to sacrifice life their mother has.
Her brother died in front of her, her mother sent her away, and she witnessed almost everyone she loved depart from the world.

Gatsby was willing to do anything for Daisy. Although it seems that things may not go as he thought they would, he is still willing to help her hoping that she would come around and want to be with him instead of Tom, but in a way, he could see the selfish side of Daisy that he never noticed before, “There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams” (Fitzgerald 92).

He had become wealthy, he had the material things that he knew she would need, and he had become friends with powerful people that he felt would impress her. Gatsby knew that Daisy felt something for him and was willing to do whatever it took to be with her, even if it meant going against her husband, “your wife doesn’t love you, she never loved you, she loves me “Fitzgerald 73).

(page 257)" Najmah feels as if she is putting Nusrat a life on the line when she goes with her any where now.
