Dr. Jekyll is viewed as a smart man with a lot of knowledge, however, due to Jekyll not being satisfied with his life, he is determined to get more out of his live and is willing to do anything to fulfill his determination. Dr. Jekyll expresses this when he states, “[A] grinding in the bones, deadly nausea, and a horror of the spirit that cannot be exceeded at the hour of birth or death. Then these agonies began swiftly to subside… [t]here was something strange in my sensations, something indescribably new and, from its very novelty, incredibly sweet. I felt younger, lighter, happier in body within I was conscious of a heady recklessness, a current of disordered sensual images running like a millrace in my fancy, a solution of the bonds of obligation, an unknown but not an innocent freedom of the soul.” (Stevenson 57).
I was relieved second semester when other kids transferred over into chorus, growing our chorus slightly. At the end of the year, we had learned that the chorus was trying to put a group together to go to Disney World at Christmas to sing in the Candle Light Processional at Epcot, so when it came time for school to start again in August, the room was full of new people. Once again we could divide our guy section into tenor and bass and divide the girls into Alto, Soprano II and Soprano I. After sending in an audition video, our chorus was selection to join the mass choir for two performances and to prepare, we learned 15 songs. My junior year, I transferred voice teachers because my old voice teacher was moving away.
The type of society that he (Equality 7-2521) lives in is very strict. He couldn’t be who he wanted to be or do what he wanted to do, because if he did then he would get punished for it. I’m sure that when he got exiled from society he was probably scared, but at the same time was relieved or curious to what else was out there. He couldn’t do much in society. If he lied, cheated, talked to a woman, or even used a pronoun to describe himself instead of Equality 7-2521, he would get thrown out, killed, or
He believes that everyone is pure and innocent as a child, but they lose their perfection when they grow up. This causes more problems for him, as he believes he cannot grow up either. If Holden were to move to Kwajalein he could put aside all of his struggles and live a full life as a Kwaj

Many define free will as the ability to act at one’s own discretion, whereas they define fate as the development of events beyond one’s control.

In Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, free will and fate play very important roles in the outcome of Oedipus’ life. He is constantly tormented by the fortune that has been told to him and makes numerous decisions in order to avoid it. Oedipus is predestined to his fate, however the choices he makes after he fulfills his destiny are of his own free will and eventually cause his downfall.
The author does this to help add to the pressure on Gene to tell the truth or to deal with the lie that he made up. In addition, this almost blows the incident out of proportion and this situation almost becomes more stretched out than what it really needed to be. I think Brinker did this so that he could also get the attention of the other boys since it had seemed like he was trying to be the center of attention all along and this was a way to achieve

Most who read this book would not come close to thinking these actions were wrong only the numbers of people in Equality’s generation would think this. Equality’s childhood was limited just as every other person around him. Apart from a few minor distinctions from the regular drone Equality was seemingly regular.

This truely is a great escape for Alex and the tough task will eventually lead to his demise. The task indeed proved to be too much for this unprepared boy ready for his freedom from his life and the feeling of being held down.
