The next line states “Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,” (2) in this line, Whitman is explaining how he is constantly surrounded by people who do not understand who he is or what he wants. The poem continues with the next line that states, “Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless? )” (3). Whitman is talking about how he is not faithful or smart enough to judge other people for their flaws.

There are so many talks and thought which come from him are pessimistic. When he falls in love with Charlotte, he think he is incorrigible. And he gives an example about it. When he argues with Albert, he says :” The question, therefore, is, not whether a man is strong or weak, but whether he is able to endure the measure of his sufferings. The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever.

Many of the short stories in The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner portray the worst possible outcome for many of the characters. They are attempting to help the readers reform themselves by showing us cases of where people went wrong. This idea is evident in this quote from a poem by Thomas Hardy: ' 'If a way to the batter there be, it exacts a full look at the worst.” This quote is saying that in order to make ourselves better we must examine the “worst” first. This is what these stories are trying to do by showing us people making an absolute mess of their situation. The “worst” can be many different things, and there are a few example from the stories.
He speaks to many people, seeking advice and comfort, but they are not able to help him find a human connection. Holden’s depression increases throughout the novel, almost to the point of suicide. He criticizes many people and ideas, labeling them as ‘phony’. Holden lies as a result of his depression, in order to hide the fact that he’s lonely and bored with his life, to divert any questions which he believes are too personal, and to create his own reality. In this way, Salinger illustrates how, during difficult times, people resort to lying as a coping mechanism.
Fear, The Destruction of People’s lives Fear: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Fear, everyone has it, some people have it more than others. If one cannot control themselves they will find out that they are excluding/isolating themselves from the rest of society In these two pieces of literature, A Separate Peace and Dead Poet’s Society , the central theme is fear and how one is isolated because of it. Todd Anderson from Dead Poet’s Society and Leper Lepellier from A Separate Peace were always fearful and shy.

Although losing a loved one can cause one to lose themselves, the actual act of losing themselves is more detrimental because once the person inside them is gone, they cannot return to normal life afterward, like they would be able to had someone they loved died. This is evident because while losing Allie left a lasting impact on Holden, the way he lost himself the day Allie died was what truly led him to being depressed and suicidal as a teenager. Even though Esther lost her father, it did not have much of an impact on her, similar to the way Jane being separated from her baby had seemingly no meaning to her. Most prominently, those who lost someone can be found, but those who lost themselves cannot be
Loneliness is so much more than being by yourself, or thinking you only have your self. It leads to more serious problems like depression or sadness. When you feel isolated from the world and you feel like you only have your self, your mind becomes over whelmed with feelings of hurt and abandonment. You start to question yourself and ask your self things like, “What’s wrong with me, why am I not good enough, and why can’t I just be happy?” I have depression and it’s a struggle at times. There are times when I feel like I’m alone and everyone around me becomes distant.

(Quote) With nobody around, Troy cannot be the center of everything, he cannot move the conversation his way. Therefore he starts drinking more, being that he cannot stand not being the center of everyone’s attention. But all the problems he has originated from, and worse than that, he does nothing productive to try and fix any of them. This once again proves that Troy is unsuitable to be a proper father for Cory and a respectable husband for Rose. Troy loses the dignity, respect and even love that was once given to him by his friends and family.
The world tells us that a leader is strong, commands a crowd, and enacts visionary plans. While these characteristics are important, my experiences have shown me that a true leader is one who continually sacrifices—whether time, energy, or comfort—to create the magic for others. I continually strive to meet others’ needs, whether that means scheduling a second meeting to accommodate everyone, comforting a club member after they receive bad news, or making sure all of the kids are included when playing with my Little. Through this, it has been my goal to become both a better person and leader, while also inspiring others to do the
The reasons that we should still read Shakespeare today is because his literature permits the present day to perceive life from the past, his work still affects people and peoples opinions today, and his work is a strong basis of what other literate professionals reference from. The claims may be supported throughout the text of "Why Read Shakespeare?" by Michael Mack, "Why Shakespeare?

Impulsive and self-destructive behavior can also be a response to being left alone or abandoned. Self-loathing leads a major role when living with BPD.

When someone with BPD is rejected, or feels as if they are, they will think that ‘this is my fault, I’m an awful person’.” (Paragraph 4) If felt rejected, the sufferer of BPD will either blame themselves fully or blame the other person.
