However, once a person has achieved relative satisfaction in Maslow’s hierarchy, looking outward, instead of inward is a normal progression of maturation. Heroes, both real and fictional, often make this transition and sacrifice part, or all, of themselves to benefit others. My hero, Ken Kesey’s best-known protagonist, R.P. McMurphy, from Kesey’s masterpiece One flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, makes this metamorphosis. By doing so, his journey is an internal conflict: he accepts the challenge of putting others’ needs before his own. (TH)

However the more one looks in depth at the main characters, the easier it becomes to understand their similarities. Holden Caulfield and Jay Gatsby share the need to hold on to what was once. Both characters grasp so tightly to memories in the past, it blinds them to reality in present-day. This is mainly a result of both characters being idealists and rejecting change. Whilst both characters thrive in the past they struggle in reality with their individual distinct flaws.
Throughout the entire play, audiences are exposed to atypical characters who, despite their adversities, actively participate in their negatively viewed life choices. For example, Mark and Roger, two of the main characters, attempt to make careers out of their passions: Mark as a filmmaker, and Roger as a musician. Whilst acknowledging their poverty, such as when Mark explains how they are both “hungry and frozen,” they also openly admit that their “uncomfortable” life was created with agency, determined by Roger’s immediate response saying, “Some life that we’ve chosen” (Rent). Although they may be struggling due to their alternative lifestyles compared to those with typical full time office jobs, it is clear that they have chosen to live differently from the status quo and demonstrates how Rent is a good portrayal of queer alternative lifestyles. This is reinforced in the conclusion of the play, which alludes to Mark and Roger’s upcoming successes in their particular fields of

I also agree with the opinion that suffering might never end, like the novel indicates through imagery at the very end. The author manages to combine happy moments with sad ones even though the sad ones takes the larger share. In addition, he accomplished his aim of having an audience that is glued to the book all along sine it is both engaging and informative. The author has a perception that the world is composed of more bad things than the good ones. This novel will be important to me as I explore the themes of post-apocalyptic fears and human struggles.
In Leonard Pitts’s “Apparently Facts No Longer Mean What They Once Did" Pitt argues that facts no longer hold the weight they once did. In his article, Pitt describes an argument he had online about whether a solider in World War I fighting off an opposing company is true or not. In this argument Pitt supports his argument with facts and articles of his own while the person he was arguing with simply states that Pitts is wrong even with all the evidence provided.
Some solid counter arguments such as “Language death is symptomatic of cultural death: a way of life disappears with the death of a language” (Daniel Nettle, 3), or “Each language has its own window on the world” (Nettle, 7) indirectly tell the readers the opposite idea that against the author’s point of view. They are valid, reasonable, and reliable to dominate the essay’s main point and its evidences. Those opposing views are so strong that they even break the whole essay down. Therefore the readers are more convinced by the counter argument more than the author’s idea, although his evidences try to plant the idea on reader’s mind.
I told him that despite having to leave all those things behind, I still had a smile on my face.

Walter further shows his false pride when he flaunts his newfound sense of power when Mr.Lindner, one of the Younger’s soon-to-be neighbors, offers him an unjust deal. Now that Walter has control over the family 's money, he considers himself the head of the family and decision maker; this plays an important role towards how Walter treats others now that he holds himself to a higher standard. This theme applies to Walter when the chairman of the “welcoming committee” (115) named Mr.Lindner pays a visit to the family a couple weeks before they 're supposed to move into their new home in Clybourne Park. During this visit, Mr.Lindner makes the offer of the Clybourne Park community “buy[ing] the house from [them] at a financial gain to [the] family” (118). Mr.Lindner’s offer represents the racial oppression and how the white community looks down upon and doesn’t want African american people dirtying their communities.
