An addict attempts to keep their problems unknown and this was the first he had heard of his brother in ages. The narrator didn’t want to believe his brother had fallen down such a dark hole. He saw all the signs and odd behavior, but still convince himself nothing was wrong. When one loves another their faults are harder to find, one will ignore flaws in favor of viewing them in the best light. His blinding love kept him from seeing the path Sonny was headed down.
And, even in death, he did not obtain happiness or even guarantee his sons’ happiness, though he ends his life just because there is a possibility that his death may inadvertently bring success, and with it, happiness, to his family. As Willy considers his plan, he exclaims that his son, Biff, will “worship me for it!” (135). Soon after, Willy says, “When the mail comes he’ll be ahead of Bernard again!” In response, Willy’s image of Ben replies that this suicidal plan is a “perfect proposition all around,” (135). But, as much as Willy yearns for success and happiness, especially through Biff’s career, he fails. The proposition is not perfect, and Biff will not succeed as a salesman.

However, Darry’s anger is often misinterpreted for hatred. Unforeseen, in the hospital, “In that second what Soda and Dally had been trying to tell me came through. Darry did care about me, maybe as much as he cared about Soda, and because he cared about Soda, and because he cared he was trying too hard to make something of me” (Hinton 98). Ponyboy understands that Darry harsh “father-figure” on him is only because he cares and wants to keep the family together by further executing substantial sacrifices for his brothers. Furthermore, as Ponyboy’s and Darry’s relationship remedies, Ponyboy continues to reshape his character to become a more resilient and pragmatic

Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess. Confidence played a big role in Mccandless life, so much that he created relationships with his family and other people that caused him to go on his adventures. Throughout this book Mccandless expresses his hate towards his parents. When he was old enough to realize that his dad had cheated on his mom this particular aspect changed him. He wanted nothing to do with his parents.
Jonson's son becomes lost to him physically which for the most part causes Jonson to lose his identity as a Father. However, with this being said, Jonson proves that he is still very much a Father as he expresses his regret and remorse over his son's death exclaiming 'O could i lose all father now!'. Jonson's tone here reflecf hope and displays his strong desire to lose his identity and with it all associations and memories he had of being a Father - clearly as his love for him means he misses him dearly. In addition to this, Jonson's love is shown as he speaks of his son as his 'Loved boy' and more importantly 'His best piece of poetry'. His speech here holds a great amount of significance as his referral to himself in the third person by using the word 'he' suggests that this is how he himself expects others to view his son.
No one is infallible. Specifically, too much pride can lead to bad outcome. The unnamed narrator did so so much to prove to his parents and others around him that he was his brother’s keeper. He pretended to be nice unknown to his parents for instance he stated “there is within me(and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty born by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at time I was mean to doodle.” Right from the beginning, we know the unnamed narrator’s gut feelings against his brother. He only tried to be nice so that he can fulfill his selfish ends.
Doing this really doesn’t help Paul because he is already terrified of his brother. In Tangerine, Paul says,” I’ve already been afraid of Erik, now I get to be afraid of Erik and Arthur” (Bloor 17). Paul’s statement affects his father’s choice. Sadly, Mr.Fisher still thinks his boys are very close, whereas in reality, Paul is scared. If Mr. Fisher had told the truth.
I empathise with Walt because his son died while they were on bad terms, although he knew Chris loved him, Walt had no time to show Chris how much he loved him. Which would be hard to deal with, this is why I empathise with Walt McCandless.
It takes the joy right out of experiencing the world. They cannot enjoy the things they once loved to do. They try to avoid the company of others because they feel they are only pitied due to the disease. Even after all that there is hope to escape the dreadful darkness. Dale Maxin is proof of
Willy Loman was a loving husband, good friend and most importantly, an amazing father. Regret fills my heart to the brim, the only thought that keeps running through my mind is what if I would’ve been there for my father. I wish the last words I spoke to my father were different and the last things I did to change my father were different. Willy’s decision to take his own life is both incomprehensible and confusing. Perhaps Willy’s priorities seemed to have shifted out of place as the years went on.
While Stanley and Zero’s friendship continues to progress, Stanley shows Zero much more loyalty, and selflessness than he did before. Stanley shows how much he cares about Zero when, “He stood up, lifting Zero’s worn-out body off the ground,” (Louis Sachar 170). Stanley is sacrificing his life for Zero, because he became loyal to him. Although he wanted to stop and rest for a while, he didn 't and decided to put Zero before himself, making him not only loyal to Zero, but self-less as well.

And another part of him couldn 't help but wish de Foix was his father, as he had first thought. There was also a small part of him that wished he hadn 't grown up in the Court of Miracles but in a safe and happy home with a loving family. However, a much larger and rational part of him was grateful and accepting of the man his childhood had helped him become. If he had grown up privileged and as the heir of Belgard, would he be the man he is today? Even so, Porthos had to admit he wasn 't pleased with his own behaviour these past few days.
