Because the rope does not break his neck, he starts to strangle to death. As he gasps for breath, he gets out his last words,“ God will give him blood to drink,” then he slowly dies.
Mr. Shiftlet continues on the road saying he has to get to, “Mobile” before nightfall only to hit a bump on the road tragically dying instantly. By this deviance he instantly got his karma. By the elements of mystery, southern pride, and deceivance, it made the plot thicken with an underlying personality of Mr. Shiftlet that he perceives to the outer world. I can now understand what the author was thinking when they wrote the title of this fiction story, “The Life You Are Saving May Be Your Own”, because if Lucynell did not fall asleep in the diner she too, would have been dead along with Mr. Shiftlet. Life has a funny way of putting you in the right spot in the right moment.
For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this, he had the eye of a vulture.” (page 381, Poe) The narrator had thought to kill the old man because of the look of his eye, though he said he loved the old man.

The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
In The Odyssey, Odysseus discovers from the ghost of his comrade Elpenor that he is dead. This evokes sadness in Odysseus, which leads him to inquire the cause of death and Elpenor explains “ 'it was all bad luck, and my own unspeakable drunkenness” (Hom.Od.11.60-61).

Making the point that if one piece of information was removed from Gatsby’s farce, then his whole world would collapse.

However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
