" Kher's quote encompasses the idea that not even the beautiful, renowned, or rich are exempt from the problems that come from living and from ignoring reality, as these are shared human struggles. In the play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Tennessee Williams attempts to make understood the corruption suffered by three members of the seemingly ordinary Pollitt family, Brick, his father, Big Daddy, and Brick's wife, Maggie, as they struggle through familial tension and arguments that intertwine with lies and warped perceptions. Human nature's worst traits befall the Pollit family and create insatiable greed and resistance to discrepancies from the norm.

For most people, writing about one’s past or real life experiences may be difficult. The Personal Statement for college applications is one example of that; high school seniors often cannot put themselves into it because it causes them to revisit that particular memory, which may not have been written exactly as remembered.

I believe the mother is very proud of Dee because she got further in her education than mama did.
