At the beginning of their relationship, Equality 7-521 “do[es] not know why, when we think of them, we feel of a sudden that the earth is good and that it is not a burden to live” (41).

Later in their relationship, they give each other unique names which helps Equality 7-521 to feel unique and separated from his brothers. When he starts to think of his sins he realizes that he “do[es] not think of them as Liberty 5-3000 any longer. We have given them a name in our thoughts.
From when Equality begins to commit transgressions, ranging from stealing candles and manuscripts to being alone, he finally feels that, “in our heart there is the first peace we have known in twenty years” (37). Equality’s peace exhibits that fact that even though he has committed numerous transgressions, he is not at odds with himself because he is doing what he personally wants to do, under his own power and will--not stemming from the will of his brothers. The concept of Equality and his individuality continually appears throughout the story, but is clearly evident when he, “wish[es] it were possible to us to know the likeness of our own person” (62). Equality realizing that he strives to know what he looks like pushes him farther from his brothers and their ideals of collectivism and signifies the next step on his journey to discovering the true value of individuality. Finally, at the conclusion of the story, Equality decides that his, “home will become the capital of a world where each man will be free to exist for his own sake.” For one to exist for themselves, by their own wishes and desires, they must first free themselves from the suffocating ideals of collectivism.
Which then he had “freedom.” As well as when he used his intelligence and used the tour guide incident with the water splashing on him to get tips off people and raise more money he normally did to pay off his debt. I like the fact that he was brave enough, strong, willing able to give up what many people die for. Only living in his van by himself with no one to talk to but himself. He survived his adventure and now he can have what he wanted from the beginning “freedom” As I did have parts I liked about the book I also had parts that I didn’t like. “It was season of selfishness, or at least that’s how I justified it” ken’s reasoning of breaking apart his relationship with Sami.
This excerpt can be interpreted to mean that the young soldiers are too young to have a real place like home, causing them to feel insignificant, but the older soldiers have a reason to live, for their “wives, children, occupations and interests.” The author uses the phrase, “taken no root,” to convey how the young soldiers have never been anywhere long enough to grow their “roots”, suggesting that they have no safe place, a place like home. This quote implies that the extreme confinement from loved ones have caused the soldiers to become secluded from their family, obliging them to think that they don’t have a purpose, and feeling like a “waste land.” The speaker refers to himself and the young soldiers as a “waste land” to symbolize that the men consider themselves insignificant, they perceive themselves as pawns in a chess game, causing repercussions to their familial relationship. The author compares the soldiers because he wants the readers
I believe this letter will keep the bond between these three characters forever strong, and supportive of each other. Ponyboy also realizes that both brothers are equally cared for by Darry, in the beginning of the book Ponyboy felt he never earned the same respect as Soda, but the letter changed that. The quote "You hurt the ones you love the most" definitely relates to the relationship of Darry and Ponyboy. In my opinion you could see a different side of Ponyboy after he read the letter, there was almost a sence of light, and happiness I 've never seen, especially during a crisis. A couple days later the two brothers meet eye to eye, Darry immediately had tears rolling down his face, my heart sank reading this.
McCandless met a lot of people throughout his journey, and impacted almost every single one of them. A prime example is when he met Ron (an old sheltered man), he had spoken to Ron about his life, and what he was going to do. Now Ron wasn’t so happy because he doesn’t enjoy life the way he should, and that is exactly what McCandless talked to him about. McCandless told him that he doesn 't have to keep living inside, and that he should get out more and see the world. This interaction left an impact on Ron, and now McCandless leaves Ron with a new way to enjoy life.
