This lead to him thinking everything was perfect and heading off to war, leaving Daisy behind. When he returned, he still had the same dream that he had once accomplished, but it had become unrealistic because Daisy was married. Gatsby’s dream began to cloud his reality and he didn’t give up on it. Despite it being unreachable, Gatsby’s dream continued to be very important to him, as he felt “that if he had searched harder, he might have found her” (152-153). He didn’t know how to win Daisy over, but that didn’t stop him from trying and searching.
There are many things that factor into reasons for loving someone. Often times when people think of reasons for loving someone, they only think about the immediate motives. People do not consider reasons outside the obvious. However, there are many hidden motives that cause people t love one another.

This created Troy’s character. Even though Troy seems to be hold a wall in-front of himself, he really cares about his family. If his family would have acknowledge that they understood his actions and loved him regardless before his death, Troy’s actions would not have been as brutal as they were when they did not say anything. In addition, Alice Mills claims that “…Troy does not face trail of initiation until he crossed the fence and left behind the protection of his family for the world of difficult choices”, I disagree with this statement as well.

One trait of Montag that I found unique was that he had a hard time thinking for himself. There was an example of this trait, “I am very much in love! He tried to conjure up a face to fit the words, but there was no face”(Bradbury, 22). In this quote, it shows that he is having a difficult time thinking of what to say. Another unique trait of his is that he attaches to people who he feels has a great friendship with him.
People in life go through many hardships and challenges, but it is in the way we handle those hardships in which our true character is shown. In the novel The Scarlet Letter, the author Nathaniel Hawthorne shows his audience many ways to people interpret hardships, and some people do not take them very well. For instance the Reverend Dimmesdale. Arthur Dimmesdale 's believes his actions of self-punishment and sin created a world in which he could no longer live a life of truth and holiness.

Afterward when she figured out that the Scarred Man was right about him not murdering her mother she said “The Scarred Man was right-the truth was like a tightrope and eventually I had to fall”. In this part of the story she is basically saying that she feels a lot of regret and pain for judging the Scarred man without knowing the truth by comparing it to a fall off a tightrope. Therefore the use of figurative language in “All Fall Down” lead to the theme that judging people causes a lot of
He did not want any consequences ever again. He wanted to live along without consequences” (2).

Osewoudt’s reasons for killing are not heroic reasons, just a reason for him to continue living and to serve a purpose. “Dorbeck has made a new man of me, he thought”(97).
