Victor loves the cold and he likes to numbness. In this quote, "The pleasant showers and genial warmth of spring greatly altered the aspect of the earth. Men, who before this change seemed to have been hid in caves, dispersed themselves, and were employed in various arts of cultivation. The birds sang in more cheerful notes, and the leaves began to bud forth on the trees. Happy, happy earth!
His drive is shown as he wishes to join the council of scholars with an inquisitive brain, wanting to “know about all the things which make the earth around us. We asked so many questions that the Teachers forbade it” (Rand 23). However, the society at hand calls for the smart to do menial labors of which is rather useless to his potential. Equality as a person gains motivation in pursuit of joy whether he realizes it or not, and he enjoys learning and understanding. Equality gets to a point in which he finds joy in discovery, and states (with pride) that “We, Equality 7-2521, have discovered a new power of nature.
In addition, Scrooge learns that he is very fortunate to have all of the things he does, and that hope can be the key to happiness. All of the themes play a very critical part in transforming and teaching Scrooge the significance of hope.

Maybe; however, I agree with Playwright Sophocles that , "all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride." This quote means that making a mistake is inevitable, but owning up to your mistake is what matters most. Sophocles quote is significant because it reveals that arrogance can in effect cause more damage that the mistake you created. I promise that I'm the most stubborn, prideful, sore-loser in the existence of
This supports the argument that man is more than just an animal due to their ability to have emotions. “Cannery Row in Montague in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream” (5). Regarding Cannery Row’s structure, the word “poem” is very fitting. With his use of shifting between intercalary chapters and plot chapters, Steinbeck explores the depths of the human mind, and their ability to challenge their fate that was given by nature. Through these chapters is he able to convey the differences between man and animal, which, in the end, are dank
He has always wanted to join the House of Scholars and discover the world around him, “We think there are mysteries in the sky…water...plants… We loved the science of things,” Now, being assigned as a street sweeper, he is not satisfied with the job he has been given, and Equality is looking for other creative outlets to express himself. Having been part of the great WE for so long, he starts feeling the need to do his own thing. His scientific endeavors bring him joy therefore, he continues doing so.

In the works of Literature an epiphany is “a moment of profound insight or revelation by which a character’s life is greatly altered” (24).
