Accomplishing goals are achievements that only those who take time and give effort can do. Those who plan and expect more out of life but do not have the will to work hard for their dreams never truly succeed. Truman Capote’s documentary novel, In Cold Blood, illustrates the lives of people who are from different social, moral, and economical positions and describes the actions they take on their quest for a better existence. Mr. Clutter, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith are all men who always desire the best for themselves. However, the means they take to attain that are for some the correct, honest way and for others an utter disaster.
But he 's rightfully allowed to be angry about the past, no matter how calm and collected Clarke was. Bellamy is allowed to express his feelings. He 's allowed to be upset that Clarke left. He 's allowed to be upset with Clarke saying she needed him, when nothing she 's done has proven that. (I 'm not suggesting that Clarke needs to pander to Bellamy, but her saying that she needs him felt wrong and almost manipulative.)
Christopher McCandless was an anomaly at best, he was the once in a lifetime kind of person that you couldn’t forget if he tried, “Many aspects of Chris’s personality baffled his parents. He could be generous and caring to a fault, but he had a darker side as well, characterized by monomania, impatience, and unwavering self absorption, qualities that seemed to intensify through his college years” (Pg 120). He had philosophies and questions about life, yet the courage to go find those answers to his questions was what stood out and maybe he didn’t find all those answers but he found enough to die in

Sometimes when we are put under the greatest of pressure, it is human nature to crack. While put to the test, many will crack, and only some will hold tight. In Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night, he is put through the worst situations that are almost impossible for us to imagine. He is put to the test on whether he should keep trusting his faith in God, or just let go. The story begins with a boy whose faith is unshakable and a father whose emotions are untouchable, but by the end, we see both of those fade away.
Franklin claims that he has been living long enough to see errors that he made, therefore as he grow older, he tend to “doubt of [his] own judgment” because nobody is perfect due to his past experiences (43). The informations that Franklin presents is to show his reputation that he is not perfect, also his constitution but he is open minded and willing to make what is best for the people. The perspective errors of the constitution have, is being “sacrificed to the public good” meaning all the flaw that constitution have will not be reveal to the people (44). Franklin is very passion about what is best for the people and their happiness, furthermore his characteristic is very respectful toward the citizen and the congress.
Their goals differed, but they all had this in common: that the step was first, the road new, the vision unborrowed, and the response they received—hatred”(The Soul of an Individualist). The quote shows that so many men have taken steps towards new things only to have their dreams taken down by the distaste of others. “His vision, his strength, his courage came from his own spirit. A man’s spirit, however, is his self. That entity which is his consciousness.
The world has been prospering from war for a long time. But, we do not always see the problems it causes. For instance, it tears families apart, it clashes generations, and finally it shows us principal versus reality. So, if war brings more bad things than good it defeats the purpose of even having a war in the first place. The authors of My Brother Sam is Dead also feels that war is pointless and unnecessary.

The author Cormac McCarthy just seemed to give us an abundance of tragedy and violence as the father of the boy keeps trying to tell him that they’ll make it even though everything seemed to be bleak. Anybody who used to be anybody was no longer important anymore, no matter what your occupation used to be in the old world. This newer world seems to be extremely backwards and even one of my favorite quotes in the book proves it, “You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” It shows that nothing in the old world matters since all you can seem to remember are the dreadful things in order for you to know that in this time and age the situation are dangerous, which makes you push yourself in order to survive. Since their new world was post- apocalyptic, there is no more relying on law enforcement agencies or in humanity either.
