It is unlikely that all of those schools actually had a problem. Instead, it is more plausible that Holden just cannot fit in. His poor attitude is what gets him expelled.

(his older brother). Or simply anyone who fits into society norms, for example, Sally Hayes. Holden’s obsession stems from his fear that he may become a phony one day. So, he spends the book running from adulthood by doing childish things and struggling to keep his life from changing. We see Holden’s fear of phonies shine throughout The Catcher in the Rye.
Friar tells Romeo that he only loves within his eyes and not his heart. That’s how Romeo left Rosaline for an opponent so quickly. Friar asks Romeo after all the tears for Rosaline, you just forget her like that “How much salt water thrown away in waste to season love, that of it doth not taste!” (Shakespeare 846). Romeo never really knew what true love is when he was with Rosaline. After shedding tears for Rosaline, Romeo wastes the salty storm by falling in love with Juliet and forgetting all about Rosaline.
In Venice they do let heaven see the pranks They dare not show their husbands. Their best conscience Is not to leave’t undone, but keep’t unknown. (Shakespeare 3.3.205-208) This illustrates Othello’s marginalization by Iago, as a result of Othello’s lack of understanding of the women in Cyprus.

Tybalt is very upset about Romeo being there, so he takes the situation to Lord Capulet. Lord Capulet tells Tybalt not to worry about it when he says “Therefore be patient, take no note of him”(ll.v.72), which makes Tybalt very angry. When Tybalt responds by saying “I’ll not endure him.” (ll.v.77), he is being disrespectful and not listening or obeying the adult. He is frankly just back-talking Lord Capulet, which is a sign of rebelliousness. Instead of being the good teenager who always says yes or no ma’am, he went against Capulet, which didn’t do much good for him because Capulet still won.
When Nwoye was reflecting his conflicting thoughts he thinks: “Nwoye knew that it was right to be masculine and to be violent, but somehow he still preferred the stories that his mother used to tell…” Nwoye was thinking about how he preferred his mother’s stories to his father’s. However, his mindset says that he believes the masculine stories of his father are superior to those of his mother. Nwoye’s masculinity is not valued in society.

His feelings of loneliness and isolation are transformed into cynicism as he is extremely judgmental towards everything and the world around him. This could be linked to the fact that he is unable to fit in and so he decides to act superior and be negative towards those around him to make himself feel better. The reader would think that Holden feels like he’s disappearing because he has no one to share his thoughts and feelings with or feel that the lack of family support contributes to his mental instability. Perhaps, Salinger presented Holden in such a way to highlight the importance of family support or suggest how significant its effects are. This is shown at the beginning of the novel to reflect how his childhood was traumatised in the past and highlights the significance of childhood in later

Holden begins complaining to her about what he hates, but Phoebe tells him that he hates everything. Though Holden disagrees with her, when she asks him to name one thing that he likes, he struggles to think of something that he likes. So, she asks him what he wants to do later on.

Holden knows that if the museum changes, he can get hurt, so he makes a conscious decision to not go in, even though his reasoning is subconscious. Jane Gallagher is an example of Holden rejecting change because she goes through some changes since his childhood and Holden is horrified, so if Jane has the ability to change, the museum also has a high chance of undergoing similar
He berates his wife for keeping such a cold and judgeful disposition, as if he is free of qualms. In fact, John was flirting with Abigail in the first act. John reprimands Elizabeth for playing God, when he does the same to the community. What makes John’s vicious and uncalled for assertion even more distasteful, is the fact that he says he should have “roared” Elizabeth down when she first accused him. Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor.
