It’s the most precious thing he had, and he tells her she is a special person. He aboards the train and leaves. When Patty is in the store one day she shows off her ring to Sister Parker and tells an extravagant story about how she got it. She said that a poor man asked her for food. She gave him some food and he thanked her.
Upon his death, a great sense of relief roams his family; a feeling that is not obtained in such situations normally. Ever since childhood, we automatically associate loyalty with family, yet little did we know that a capitalistic society and its way of thinking could get between these two terms, particularly the latter. Kafka reflects that, realistically, his odd fiction narrative can become a reality, when cornered by such society. Even Grete, the only one that took care of Gregor, seems to resent her brother after facing poverty and blames him for their current financial status. Kafka demonstrates that society's norms have the power to adjust normality, according to its desires.
‘You 're worth the whole damn bunch put together.’” (The Great Gatsby, 154). This is one of the last things that Nick has ever said to Gatsby before he is eliminated by George Wilson. While Gatsby was in love with the image of Daisy and falling even deeper in love, Nick was falling for Gatsby’s image in a sense. He stopped caring about his strong abhor of the wealthy East Egg crowd considering Gatsby was West Egg and New Money. He did not hold the general arrogance that those of Old Money did.
As the story progresses, Gregor becomes aware of his waning humanity because of his lack of interaction with the other members of the family. His degradation as a human, however, began before his physical transformation, due to his ceaseless devotion to work. Informing the audience of the Samsa family’s backstory, at one point the narrator states that “They had been good times and they had never come again, at least not with the same splendour, even though Gregor had later earned so much that he was in a position to bear the costs of the whole family, and did bear them. They had even got used to it, both Gregor and the family, they took the money with gratitude and he was glad to provide it, although there was no longer much warm affection given in return” (Samsa 15). The narrator’s statement encapsulates the tragic path that Gregor took.

Regardless, Dickenson expresses his thought of the social changes in this novel of what was happening in that period to what moral person should be. Therefore, there is an obvious treatment in the different social classes. As a result, Christmas Carol is distinguished because in the novel, Scrooge the main character, is a wealthy old man therefore he does not care about anything or anyone. Meanwhile, in the dream of the future, tt saw himself dead yet nobody cared that he died. As a consequence, of his dreams, he subsequently, understands that both are equally

While he introduces other characters to represent the good that has surrounds him. Though set during Christmas, the story has a meaning that relates to people year round. Dickens carries this Theme of compassion throughout the entire story, starting with characters around Scrooge and ending with Scrooge himself. When we are introduced to the nephew Fred, we see how even though Scrooge is a old grumpy man with no friends and who scares off anyone who may dare to speak to him, Fred still invites him to the family Christmas party. Fred knows Scrooge will not accept, but perhaps knowing Scrooge is the only blood family he has left, he makes an effort.
Usually I beg my mom or dad to giv them money or food, but when that fails, I just try to smile at them and let them know that I care. I have even given out a care package to a homeless couple before, and seeing their happiness made day so much better. These people are not invisible to me anymore, and never will
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.
[…] when I learned what happened, I renounced the Lord. […] I decided I couldn’t believe in a God who would let something that terrible happen to a boy like Alex’ ” (Krakauer 60). After that moment Franz turned to alcohol to forget the pain. The impact that Chris left on Ronald was enormous. McCandless was far a unique person whom everyone that knew him learn to respect him and adore.

My father was absent in my childhood. Therefore, my mother played both parenting roles. Which made things tough. It was not the best situation, but it has molded, and benefited me in many ways: For starters, it taught me how to survive with a limited supply of food, money, and/or resources, etc. My family was not rich, but as my mother would often say, we were “one paycheck away from being poor.” My sisters and I never went to bed hungry, but I can remember on numerous nights we had to be creative with making dinner to feed our four family household.
