Love is when one loves someone so much they will do almost anything for the person they love.

Notably, Paine is using their children as a reason to continue the war so they do not have to fight in one in the future. Furthermore Paine then
Shakespeare uses both romantic and identity crushes to show that parents should take teenage crushes seriously by providing examples of stories and lessons he put together into his plays. For example, One of his many famous plays he has created that is a great example of both romantic and identity crushes is Romeo and Juliet.

Helen Keller’s realization was that life is beautiful, and this quote affirms that, “ It would have been difficult to find a happier child than I was as I lay in my crib at the close of that eventful day and lived over the joys it had brought me, and for the first time longed for a new day to come” (Keller 84-85).

Doctor Frankenstein’s flaw was that he was on a quest to become godlike, but that ended up being beyond his control. Doctor Frankenstein was truly an instrument of suffering for himself and others.

“As awful as he could be, I always knew he loved me in a way no one else ever had” (Walls 279).

Loving her father at his worst, meant crying and being upset when he resulted back to drinking, abused her mother, and acted like a very mean person. One of the greatest examples of forgiveness in The Glass Castle, was when Jeannette wanted her father to stop drinking. She cared about him enough, to want him to stay in the world alcohol-free.
For many, family is not only a blessing, but our greatest accomplishment. We are proud of the love we give and receive, for our children and the habits, emotional responses, obligations and values that we teach them. In The Odyssey, Odysseus is no different and the importance of his family is demonstrated as he weeps tears of sadness in their absence and rejects Calypso’s offer of immortality in exchange for his companionship. “‘My lady goddess, here is no cause for anger. My quiet Penelope—how well I know—would seem a shade before your majesty, death

At this point in the story I couldn’t help but feel extremely happy, and relieved for Jackson because all he wanted to do was get his grandmother’s regalia back, it was the last thing that he had of her. Sherman Alexie did a great job of building up the characters for this story, it showed me how important culture is and to do what you believe in.

Through her memories of him, she made me get to know him and care for him, and she got me invested in their relationship, but his death made it so that I knew it was over. In a strange way, I felt myself wanting him to come back, but I knew this is impossible due to the fact that it was a
