Although he starts his adventure easygoing and naive, Cole's journey is one that leads him from innocence to maturity in his search for a personal haven, suggesting that one’s development and growth stem from new experiences. As the environment and society around him are changing, Cole remains steadfast in his unwillingness to give up the past, emphasizing his naiveté and innocence. The world is coming face to face with modernization and cowboys and ranchers like him are starting to lose their place in the world.

Once Walt starts producing methamphetamine, its criminality starts to wear down to viewers because Walt is still that loving family man who is trying to support his family. The way crime is viewed in Breaking Bad is like a paradigm shift of ideology. All of Walter's actions are justified because of the emotional attachment and sympathy from viewers. Walt knows he is going to die from cancer and wants to ensure his family financial stability even if that means going to the extremes of engaging in illegal actives. Breaking Bad has been labeled as one of the best shows of its time (Forbes 2016, Rolling Stone 2016).
In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.

When we are children, we are a little bit of everything, an astronaut, an artist, and an athlete. Someone once told me that growing up is a process of giving up dreams and ambitions. I have always wondered if people realize when it is their last time doing what they love. The last time they will hit a volleyball, string the final key on the antique piano, or paint a final masterpiece. They release a portion of their childhood, but for what, a new beginning, to focus on something else, or because they are lazy?
For example, Alaska explains to Pudge how you can get stuck in the labyrinth. “You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present” (John Green, 54). In this passage Alaska expounds how you can get caught in the labyrinth. Alaska elucidates that the labyrinth is life and you can get caught in the suffering of life but work to move forward to change your past.

That’s when he decided he was going to create a cartoon named Mickey, where they wouldn 't be able to take it from him. That’s where the cartoons really started to take off.

Cancer work puts the love of life back into you - when you take the time to learn the

One of his main patients is a man named Leonard Lowe, played by Robert Deniro. Doctor Sayer begins a diligent study. To the \present day, there are still many questions surrounding this strange disease. During one amazing season in the late 60's, a miracle happened. In my opinion, both Robin Williams and Robert Deniro should have won Oscars for this film.
Ebert, in the interview states, “I didn’t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find out.” He got incredibly sick and was on the verge of death and had finally realized how precious life and happiness was (paragraph 34). Suffering and illness impacts the way a person profits from life. Coming from my own personal experiences with multiple family members suffering from cancer or other life-threatening diseases, they end up valuing life much more after being diagnosed. The ironic thing is that after they heal, they go back to taking advantage of life’s most precious moments. Another article titled, "What Is a Life Worth?"
Optimism was one of Terry’s best qualities, but he hadn’t always seen the glass half full. When Terry had his right leg amputated, he was dispirited and unhappy (TerryFox:Facts,2015). It took him a while to get accustomed to his new prosthetic leg and the lifestyle that came with it. It was especially hard since Terry was such an athletic person and was always on his feet before the amputation, but he prevailed over his problems and saw it as an opportunity to raise cancer awareness (TerryFox:Facts,2015). “His world was turned around, but he decided to look on the loss of his leg as a new challenge.” (Scrivener,2000,p.
