Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective. As for Sammy, his stubbornness is shown when he quits his job. Quitting his job was a spontaneous decision he made to protect his ego. Lengel calls out “you don 't want to do this” but Sammy keeps walking (Updike 5).

We have all been told at some point in our lives “be careful what you wish for”. This old man foretold ironic events to follow Alan if he purchased the love potion. It showed that women don 't really have much of a choice in relationships, if a man likes you, then you have to like him; even if that means getting put under a spell. Men think they want a women that can be controlled and monitored in everything they do. Men do not want a woman who have other dreams and ambitions other than being his loyal wife; but if the woman is around “too much” she is considered a nag.
In contrast, both Benvolio and Mercutio are Romeo’s friends, but when Romeo gets hurt from Rosaline, they choose two opposite ways to advise Romeo. Benvolio is maturer and more positive than Romeo, he suggests Romeo to find the right woman for him through comparison.

Holden conjectures that beautiful and mirthful moments should be long-lasting and that time be stopped for the sake of stability. With this in mind, Holden opts for avoiding reality altogether. Doing so guarantees in Holden not having to accept how distinct and amended his friends and peers are now than when he had last seen or spoken to them. On the hand, if Holden were to bear the fact that everything and everyone has changed, he would have to acknowledge that it is time that he grow up or change as well, something which is very difficult for him seeing as how he is unwilling to lose his innocence. Consequently, this induces Holden to deluding himself steering clear from reality.
For example, Holden thinks of a relationship as being something sacred that cannot be casually thrown around. We see this in his attitudes towards the people at the Edmont Hotel deeming them to be degenerates due to what he views as casual behavior. Also, Holden has a certain naivety towards women as tends to idealize them as evidenced by Jane. Stradlater is the antithesis, in using common slang the man is a player, as Holden describes on pg. 27, he takes a mild view towards sex and is very charismatic towards
I was unable to move where he lived, and although he had initially wanted to move near me, his son was his priority and he didn’t want to cause turmoil in his relationship with him by forcing a move here.

It is also clear that he no longer objectifies Jane - he realises that his love is more important than "fine clothes and jewels" which are "not worth a fillip" (Brontë, p. 440). His flippant tone in proclaiming this is also remarkable because it reveals that he now values Jane for the love he feels for her rather than the performance of his idealised lover that he previously paraded. Indeed, Jane observes this change as well and notes that she loves him more than she did "in [his] state of proud independence" (Brontë, p. 440) now that he has learnt to overcome his need for dominance. Mr. Rochester also declares that he has turned to religion to redeem himself of his sins. He states that his heart
Maybe I’ll go with him next year.” He does not resent him for being away, on the contrary, he forgives him and excuses his absence. “And Pop- but he had to come. He always had. He’s just forgot about how long he’d been gone. Anyway, if he knew Mason was gone, he wouldn’t leave me here by myself.
Holden is asking for Carl Luce 's company because he was trying to get rid of some of his loneliness and that wasn 't the only reason too.
