There were various things McCandless could have done that would’ve changed his fate significantly. McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time, I believe he had no business going into Alaska. Even though I don’t think McCandless was so smart, I admire his courage, a lot of people feel like they are missing something, and they do nothing about it and eventually fall into depression. McCandless, on the other hand, went out to look for what he thought he was missing, his plans didn’t go so well, but he at least tried to do something about it. McCandless’ legacy lives today, some people look up to him, many
Crabbe understood that blame was just an excuse as to not have to take responsibility for his actions. Not only that, but he also learned to be responsible, especially after he couldn’t make a fire on the account of wet matches. Crabbe finally learned that he was very addicted to his pal Silent Sam, and he did find out how to overcome his constant cravings. Crabbe was a young man with access to anything he desired, but he wanted to control his own life. So, he went alone into the wilderness.
This shows how he will do it alone and even without proper equipment. Unlike John, Erik and his team were properly equipped the whole way up. It seems they had this planned ahead of time unlike John’s in the moment decision. His words show how he never wanted to descend from the mountain. He even felt bad for those of his team who did have to turn back.
Portrayed in the movie Into the Wild, Christopher McCandless was a free spirit he did what he want when he wanted. Ivan and Chris were completely different people one was a formalist and the other was a maverick, but in the end it didn 't matter how different they were because they found true happiness in death. Ivan constantly tried to conform to society and its laws. Ivan subconsciously wanted to be an individual but he constantly suppressed those urges to fit in. He wanted to follow the path that society lead him on.
Although his death may seem uneventful it is essential to the point that conflicts among families and friends only end tragically. Mercutio would have never challenged Tybalt if it weren’t for the hate that had been drilled into his mind. His whole life Mercutio had been taught to blindly
In the end, they all realize they could have never changed their fate. Oedipus’s belief in that he had free will and that he could stop the prophecy from coming true ended up being a guideline for fate to get the prophecy to start. McHugh says, “Oedipus, driven by what he believes to be his free will, compulsively continues his search for the murderer despite the warnings he receives.” (no page) Oedipus’s pride also was a factor in his tragic end along with him believing he had free will. He ignored the signs of what was true, he was warned by a prophet and even Jocasta foreshadowed this when she begs him to stop his search. It ended in Jocasta hanging herself from figuring out that Oedipus is her son and she was in an incestuous marriage with her husband’s murderer.
I mustn’t act like a baby I must try to be strong” (60). Salva never wanted his uncle to leave him but he knew that there was nothing he could do to stop his uncle from leaving. He then decided to show uncle he could be brave and live on his own. You must understand that Salva is only little at this point in the book and the fact that he has to already live for himself and be brave is startling. Even though he is still very small, he still has bravery.
Siduri giving Gilgamesh advice does seem a little odd because he is a cruel man who listens to no one but himself and has a feeling of superiority because he is part god. While he may not have necessarily wanted the advice it was something he needed. He would have lived out the rest of his life as a miserable man and would have driven himself crazy if he put all his time into worrying about being immortal. The advice was very simple and reasonable and completely transformed his
Not only did he not commit the wrongful act people accused him of, he never acted wrongfully or illegally. Many people knew Tom as a truly good man with a good heart. To the hard-working, dedicated, and loving, Tom, to perpetrate such a crime against a lady, seemed unthinkable. Yet, because MayElla dissembled both his character and the facts, he found himself desperately needing Atticus’s help to prove his innocence of this terrible
Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules. In this context it is believable that Sarty wants to do the right things from now on,"If I had said they wanted only truth, justice, he would have hit me again." But now he said nothing. He was not crying. He just stood there”(Faulkner, 3).
No one took the time to recognize his desires of freedom and solitude, which is why many were shocked when they found him missing. Merriam-Webster defines life as an overall vision of or attitude toward life and the purpose of life. McCandless’ view on life was extraordinary and he only lived the life he thought was suitable; he appreciated the underrated belongings of life itself and longed for a greater good. One may judge his decisions on foolhardy behavior, but McCandless knew what he wanted and went for it without reflection on others’ notions. “it is easy, when you are young, to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough, it is your God given right to have it” (Krakauer 155) In any case, Chris McCandless was recklessly bold and did what most could not.
I call it false because his parents, friends and coaches all believed he was this perfect leader on the field and off. Unfortunately, by keeping quiet, I was the only one who knew about his lack of moral values. When I reminisce about my decision today, I believe I made the wrong choice. I believe I had the wrong mindset when I chose to put the team 's success in front of ethics in general. I 'm not proud of my choice because it reflects on my character and morality.
A minute in my life i needed to stay was the bond i had with a nearby companion yet it has been lost because of firearm brutality. Losing somebody who can 't be supplanted by any other person is harder than losing a huge number of cash. I have been influenced by my encounters figuring out how to conquer the majority of the difficult times, finding that things can 't be overlooked, and picking up information about the uniqueness of a fellowship. At the point when my closest companion was a casualty to weapon brutality, my life changed totally. I didn 't have any acquaintance with it would be so difficult to defeat the inclination that my companion had abandoned me.
