Everyone in high school could use a hero and LaBarge found his. Thoreau was an inspiration to LaBarge and influenced his decisions and actions, much like the “heroes” of today.

Darry is a hard worker and keeps working hard to maintain or keep what he does have; Darry has never given up on his family. This shows Darry’s main perspective on life, to appreciate what you have and work for what you want because he is constantly working for his loved ones and himself by improving all of their lives.

This goes against Darry’s main perspective on life, to appreciate what you have and by Pony having a high level of intelligence and not using it, is a waste- according to Darry’s standards.
