Some may argue that it was his right to strive for his goal by his philosophy but he ignored offers that would have kept him alive. Mccandless followed his journey to Alaska.
For instance, in the film “October Sky,” Homer Hickam had a sequence of hardships he had to face, particularly between his father, John Hickam. The specific quote, “he has no idea what he wants to be. But I know what he is. He’s a menace… and a damn thief” (October Sky, John Hickam) displays his father’s resentment towards Homer’s passion in rocket building.

Jim, Miss Watson’s runaway slave, has never expected Huck to be anybody but himself. Huck does mature as the time they spend together increases, Huck has never met stability in his life until Jim which is why he takes a liking to him.
He spends many nights in the forest freezing and hungry with only sacks of rice to eat. Chris also decides it is best for him to ditch and leave behind items he thinks that aren’t necessary such as his yellow Datsun, buried his license plates along with the rifle he had, and had also burnt all the money he had in his wallet.

Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595).

The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.
Nick knew he had to run away and hide the fact that he was a ghost, but he just stood there, paralyzed with fear. He questioned to himself, “Why didn’t this boy go through me?
