Holden loves his sister very much and has never said that she was a phony. She always gave him some hope in the world and he was most likely hanging onto his life using that hope.

After Holden found James Castle’s body when he committed suicide, Mr. Antolini warned Holden not to die nobly for an unworthy cause, but Holden might think otherwise.

When people do not fully understand something, they prefer to take the cognitive shortcut and just brush off the complicated grey areas.
The Blue Man tells Eddie, “That there are no random acts. That we are all connected. That you can no more separate one life from another that you can separate a breeze from the wind.” This quote is one of the main lessons throughout the story since Eddie’s life is connected to the lives of every person he meets in heaven.

The strength of the relationship between god and mortal greatly affected a mortal’s life. In Homer’s The Odyssey, the different relationships between Poseidon and Odysseus, Odysseus and Athena and Telemachus and Athena affect whether or not Odysseus’ will complete his nostos.

1 August 21, 2015 Laughter My father and I visited my uncle’s grave recently and my father told me that without me, he would still most likely be depressed about his brother.

My phone chimed next to me, and as I looked down I wasn’t expecting to see the disappointed message from my father. He had just started watching my favorite show “Shameless,” and was disgusted by the content. I felt my eyes burning up and I did not want to start crying in front of my mother. That was the first person, who shunned me because I watched it. “Shameless,” was about the Gallagher family and the rest of their crazy neighbors on the southside of Chicago.
