After living his whole life free and unrestrained by anyone or anything, he found himself confined and threatened in a way he could never have imagined” (55). Stevenson could have said this in many ways.

This quote also shows Louie's cousin attitude slowly giving up on his dream of owning an attractive car; and that the only way he will get close to his dream is by stealing other people's’ dreams. The reader can possible gain the knowledge of not

The text quotes:”The funny faces that she made and the way she’d stomp her feet.

Being lazy can sometimes end up being the best choice, and this essay is a prime example of that. Morley used a great amount of irony throughout his essay. While he brought up multiple reasons that could persuade the reader, he didn't elaborate on any of them. This shows the
He moved from place to place with the hope of starting over, creating his own independent community to maintain mental and physical health.
