A second lesson Polly learned was to put others before herself/sacrifice. A second example is Though Polly still retains some of her racist views, she begins to shed some of them and see Amari as a true friend as they have to work together. When “Polly leaps out of the woods holding the musket and shoots at Clay.” At the beginning of the book Polly would have never shot Clay or even thought about that.
Secondly, during Crabbe’s journey, he learns how to survive in the forest and also learns some new skills that will be helpful which shows that he has developed intellectually. After Crabbe saves Mary from the hunt camp, he uses her compass to guide them back to the campsite since he knows how to use it: “First, we were on course. Mary’s compass had kept us on track” (Bell 131). Crabbe was able to use the compass to get back to the campsite and he was going the right way because he said he was on course. By using the compass to navigate shows that Crabbe intellectually develops because before he met Mary he did not know how to use a compass but now he is an expert at it.
The first reason Crabbe’s journey is positive is because Crabbe learned many survival skills from Mary. Crabbe says, "I got so I actually thought I could survive in the bush without Mary—on an elementary level—being able to find food (vegetables, animal and fish), build shelter, make fires (even in the pouring rain), and cook fairly edible meals" (Bell 95). This proves that Crabbe’s journey is positive because he gained survival skills that kept him alive. Crabbe is able to make his own meals, build shelters, and make a fire. He needs these skills in order to survive because without them he would not make it out alive in such a harsh and

Prior to the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar built a nation of apes inspired by love and continuing onto this movie, this way of leadership developed a family. However, this view made him weak among his apes because they expected him to forgive them for doing wrong with little consequences. However, when Caesar was thought to be killed and Koba was the leader, his leadership style of fear resulted in majority of apes going against their morals, values and principles. The fear by him made him powerful among his apes because they expected no forgiveness for doing wrong and the consequence of death.

You learn life lessons almost everywhere you go and anything you see. In movies, from people, online and especially in books. For me, the book “Unspeakable” by Caroline Pignat is filled with different main ideas and life lessons everyone should know.

David Foster Wallace is known for his work in countless articles including “Big Red Son”, “F/X Porn” and “Federer as a Religious Experience”. He covers very bold topics such as self castration, government defying conspiracies and godly athletes. In his work titled “Consider the Lobster” which is about the Main Lobster Festival, and how they boil thousands of lobsters in a giant pot for all the attendees.
