The first quote is " I don't want to have lived in vain like most people... I want to go on living even after my death!"

Anne wants to have a nice and wonderful life, but she went into hiding so now she can't have as happy of a life like she was wanted to have. Also, in this quote it describes how she thought her life
It is shocking to see how society oppresses, damages and even kills someone because he can be different to others, because he doesn’t follow the stereotypical line with everyone else. So what do I mean by a stereotypical line? I mean to see the same path along and along. Everyone is the same, no uniqueness found among society. For example, seeing a fat, nerd boy from the Dominican Republic.
The reading states, “I would like to baptize myself under a new name, a name more like the real me, the one nobody sees. Esperanza as Lisandra or Maritza or Zeze the X. Yes. Something like Zeze the X will do” (Cisneros 5). She believes that her getting a new name will take away from how society feels about her name and will not judge her as much.
In some respects, the time lost due to her lack of self-confidence is time never to be regained again, but the fact is without the lack of self-confidence Codi had she would have never had the relationships or events take place that shaped her into the character Kingsolver intended her to be. Grace became the place she belonged and everyone in it belonged to her.

Fleur Beale wants readers to understand that no matter what others think, what others talk about doesn’t matter as you should do what you think is right.

Despite the talk about this and disapproval from others she didn’t give up her opinions and stayed strong with what she believed. This is important as often in life we will have an original opinion which is good but courage is sticking with that opinion even when it is obvious that others disagree and not changing that because of this mater. A movie that is similar to this book is Divergent.
It is often said that a new definition of a woman arose in the 1920s. But is that true? While most women experienced many newfound freedoms in the 1920s, black women could not explore these freedoms as easily as white women. In the novel Passing by Nella Larsen, Irene Redfield and Clare Kendry grew up in Chicago together and are now both two wives and mothers in New York City during the 1920s, but there is a big difference between them. The novel’s title refers to light-skinned black women masquerading as white women for social benefits.

Such improbable goals not only occurred in the play, but also in history. When looking at Malcolm X’s legacy, it is clear why his attitude towards achieving the American Dream for African Americans was not ideal. He stated that the African Americans are the original people of the Earth, the White people are the devils, Africans are superior to Whites, and that the demise of the White race is imminent. Even though these statements served as a centrifugal force for African Americans initially, his statements were rather disrespectful and suggested violence. Like other violent attempts, this movement also failed as Malcolm X had an improbable goal in his path to help African Americans to achieve their American Dream (Mamiya).
The theme of perseverance is shown in many ways, because Phoenix Jackson is the embodiment of perseverance in many ways. At any point in her journey she could have stopped, decided it was too much, and gone home, but instead she did not. She proved to herself that it was possible for her to make the journey, even though people probably told her she couldn’t, and Eudora Welty described this to the audience through characterization, imagery, and setting, within A Worn
