“They would have killed me, thought Montag, swaying, the air still torn and stirring about him in dust, touching his bruised cheek. For no reason at all in the world they would have killed me.” pg.122 This quote is a representation of how Montag’s society has people that will randomly run into someone, kill them and think that it is ok. They do it like it’s a funny game they love to play. They won’t get punished, the person who was killed doesn’t matter to them, or the government for that matter. A teenage girl was killed this way, Montag himself was almost killed this way and yet nobody gets punished.
He says the following when killing Pluto, “hung it with the tears streaming from my eyes, and with the bitterest remorse at my heart – hung it because I knew that it had loved me, and because I felt it had given me no reason of offence – hung it because I knew that in so doing I was committing a sin – a deadly sin that would jeopardize my immortal soul as to place it.” And here he says the following after killing his wife, “The guilt of my dark deed disturbed me but little.” In both of the quotes, some of the words can clue you in that he feels remorse, such as, dark deed disturbed me, jeopardize my immortal soul and deadly sin.

The crew of thugs had been begging for a violent death like that: shot down, no mercy “(Patterson 193) meaning that in one sense Alex agrees with Taylor that they had it coming. Then almost immediately after Alex contradicts himself by thinking “ In my book and the blind eyes of justice, the fact that a man had it coming doesn’t make killing him right “ (Patterson 194).

He might not have physically killed them, but his actions did.

For all intents and purposes, there was no gold. Guitar had been so upset that I had disagreed with him in his fundamental views of race relations that he had attempted to kill me, and would it again.
Even though I did not realize what he wanted, in the end, I can say that I loved him. I loved him enough to consider him in my malicious plan, not to put blame on him or to harm him, but to (attempt to) save him as well.

I am thankful that I have changed, I will learn to become a stronger person.
