No one cares about Gatsby because he never made any worthwhile connections as doing so was never important to him. Instead, he only made superficial connections with people. In the latter parts of the book, we are given an almost hyperbolic example, when, "The minister glanced several times at his watch, so I took aside and asked him to wait for half an hour. But it wasn 't any use. Nobody came" (Fitzgerald 174).

There was no barn to inherit.” (16) Okonkwo’s father Unoka was a lazy and improvident person. He was a very talented flutist but, never brought food to his family.
For instance, Boo Radley, a young man in Maycomb society is considered to be dead due to his introvert nature. As the author quoted, “no, it was not that sort of thing that there were other ways of making people turn into ghosts.” (Lee 14). The Radleys are one of the oldest families in Maycomb but still they do not have any contact with their neighbors. Their son, Boo is believed to be turned into a phantom since nobody ever sees him walking out of his house or interacting with people.

He learned many years ago from his family that they must defy the poor soil and the weather and the lack of friends to survive. When Pepé is insulted by a man of the Anglo community, he defies this man who has never known or experienced poverty and the prejudice which has plagued the Torres family. In Monterey, the Anglo community where Pepé must do an errand for his mother, he is considered merely another Mexican kid, a non-person whose life or death is unimportant. But to Pepé life is extremely important — especially today, for he rides into town alone and, for the first time, he feels like a man. He rides in to buy only medicine and salt, and his mother does not acknowledge that he is a man yet; but, to Pepé this journey is proof that he can be trusted to ride into town alone.
Throughout his life, Crooks has seen many people with dreams that are never achieved. “‘Nobody ever gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land… They’re all the time talking about it, but it’s jus’ in their head’” (Steinbeck 72). Crooks believes that dreams never come true, no matter how often they are discussed or how much work goes towards them. As a child, Crooks played with white children that came to his family’s ranch.

Comparing Christmases In the book, A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is a crabby, bad-tempered old man. He never does anything for Christmas, as he believes that there is nothing to be happy about. All Scrooge cares about is money. In the past, his fiancé left him because she felt as if money had taken her place in Scrooge’s heart.

His situation is not the same situation for all. Another example of this appears when he writes, “Poverty doesn’t give you strength or teach you lessons about perseverance” (553). He again leaves out the masses. Alexie argues that his parents “never got the chance to be anything because nobody paid attention to their dreams” (551). The argument that being poor makes you a nobody is not well developed because Alexie’s only source is his own family.
His fiance’s name was Elizabeth. He was a shy, quiet person that wouldn't connect with others and they wouldn't either because of his appearance and how he is.

Paul and Farouk have something to hide, but each keeps their secret for different reasons. First, Farouk was hiding his identity because Sang did not know any friends or family relating to him. Also, he never wanted to spend time with her housemate as the author says, “ He never said hello or good bye; instead, he behaved as if Sang was the sole occupant of the house. They never sat in the living room, or in the kitchen” (186). That clears show how he does not want to be known.
