Accomplishing goals are achievements that only those who take time and give effort can do. Those who plan and expect more out of life but do not have the will to work hard for their dreams never truly succeed. Truman Capote’s documentary novel, In Cold Blood, illustrates the lives of people who are from different social, moral, and economical positions and describes the actions they take on their quest for a better existence. Mr. Clutter, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith are all men who always desire the best for themselves. However, the means they take to attain that are for some the correct, honest way and for others an utter disaster.
Max’s teacher’s begin to see that potential too “...she finally gave up on trying to trying to make me talk in class, and instead she waits until study hall, where she asks me the same questions alone and I tell her the answers”(81).

The empty book is a chance to restart and put everything about his parent behind him. But of course that is difficult for Max because he thinks he can’t write.
“Knowing when to walk away is wisdom. Being able to is courage. Walking away, with your head held high is dignity,” (Unknown).

This causes many of the villagers to question their identity including the main characters son, Nwoye.
Religion is portrayed in this film through the church and it emerges when Will Kane is very desperate for help. He has gone from the saloon, to the hotel as well as private homes in order to seek help but has recruited no one. Thus, out of desperation Kane goes to church in order to seek help before Frank Miller arrives in town. This scene conveys many religious elements as it begins with the priest reading the biblical passage Malachi as Will Kane interrupts the service and asks for help. This illustrates that religion is portrayed as a form of refuge for Will Kane, as religion merely surfaces when Kane is desperate and has nowhere else to go for help.
Asking the invisible for more is rude. It might seem also wrong for many of us that are religious to call God “invisible” in this writing. Only because he is not invisible he “lives through the church and our hearts.” Even if there was a God, why do we tend to ask him for more. Have we grown lazy enough that we ask the invisible for the impossible? To change things that are ruled by nature.

Unfortunately though Harrison’s life was cut short because of the things he believed and the things he wanted to accomplish.

When distilling him down, it is near impossible to go any deeper than the obvious points. Danny Saunders possesses a brilliant mind, and often feels passionately about his beliefs, but he is constantly searching for the solution to the pain in his life and the lives of others. The Chosen makes it quite clear that Danny has a brilliant mind. So brilliant, in fact that Reuven’s father calls him “a phenomenon.” “Once in a generation is a mind born like that.” (110) Danny’s photographic memory and instant recall allow him to have a
The lack of communication added an extra burden because there was no instant response. All that people thought they could do was to look towards their religion for comfort. The attendance to sermons and prayer meeting made it feel like the people back home were helping. All the people on the home front wanted was to have their families return safely and for the war to come to an
