Macomber is not what Margot necessarily wants, but has enough money to have her. “Margot was too beautiful for Macomber to divorce and Macomber had too much money for Margot to ever leave him (pg22).” Aristotle describes bravery as acting because they want to be there not as though they feel they need to in order to escape shame. Macomber goes into killing the buffalo as though he is trying to escape that shame that he has brought to him and his wife.

Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.

Ignored can lead to catastrophic consequences. In the story into the wild by Jon Krakauer the main character Chris Mccandless attempts to conform with nature alone with transcendental ways but dies as a result. Mccandless resolution was unjustified because he left his friends and family to distress, he did not have adequate materials to sustain himself in the wilderness and he overestimated himself throughout his journey. 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.
Eli is someone who everyone loves even when they first meet him, except Victor. Although he soon grows on him because of their shared interests. The story is beautifully written because it doesn’t reveal the what the underlying problem is right away. It reveals it over time. The basic plot of the story is that Victor and Eli used to be the best of friends, until a major situation drove them apart.

He discovered these answers by secluding himself from society and spending months alone with nature. Chris despised all things materialistic, and his parents lived a materialistic lifestyle that he just could not bear to be apart of. He found himself at his happiest when rolling through life with only the bare necessities. Chris thrived on the power he received from living life with less, or as he called it, the euphoria of dispossession. Finally, Chris believed that bliss was achieved by searching for and determining the meaning of life.
I think their friendship gives a realistic picture of friendships because they were always true to one another and wanted the best for each other. The four boys always supported each other through hard times. For example, Chris was very discouraged because the people of the town predicted that he would be a lowlife in the future just like his father. However, Gordie did not let that put down Chris, instead he encouraged Chris to also take college-level course to become something high and prove the public wrong. Female friendships are very similar to this.
Sometimes he would wait days until he saw any targets. He only used the iron sight of his gun. This meant there was no zoom or anything to help him find enemies. The advantage of this was to use a scope you need to put your head up to look through it, but with an iron sight you could stay totally protected while sniping. His tactic was to stay close to the roads that the Soviets used so he could pick them off as they went by.

Holden is a very independent individual, he doesn’t really care about anything. Holden is a tough character he like to speak his mind, he also does things without worrying about the consequences. Jim is a very interesting character; he is a conformist person because he was always trying to fit in, I would also consider Jim a brave character because of the fact that he would do anything dangerous stunts just to make some friends. These two characters have important similarities and differences.
Douglass lived a long life and accomplished many things but the biggest accomplishment was freedom. His body was free, but his spirit never quite was because of the racists, intolerant, narrow-minded people out there taking away his rights. As Douglass once said “If there is no struggle, there is no progress”. I believe this quote explains so much of what he believes in and how hard he is willing to fight for it because he never gave in to the
