Being prideful, unimaginative, and close minded can eventually lead to one’s downfall. Too much self-assurance generally does not lead to admirable or advantageous decisions. It prompts that specific person to make irrational choices. The man’s unimaginative personality masks him from understanding the significances his actions carry. During his travels The man’s “inability to imagine himself in danger from the cold”( Widdecombe) is directly correlated with his over-confidence.
Hypocritically, Holden withholds his truths from the world though he seeks for truth from others. This portrays both a positive and negative perspective of the truth. Although Holden does not realize it, his actions provides a conflict to his constant disgust of the truths that others hide. While this may not be clear to Holden, the results are evident in context; while the lack of truth in others’ lives creates an enemy in Holden’s way, his personal lack of truth provides an ally to the journey of

Pete matured in a way from when he messed things up with Sucker. This is a fact that he learned when he was more "innocent" than mature.
Therefore, this is the direct result of the negative mentality and the unwillingness to acknowledge that he was not liable guilty, the corrupt justice system would not be resolved. It is apparent that although the reader may think that the human nature would want righteousness or and kindness, it goes to show how people allow themselves to be manipulated and lose their self control so
Individuals regularly ceaselessly judge individuals without genuinely understanding their experience. Everybody does that unknowingly. By simply taking a gander at a man, individuals expect as opposed to know the individual's identity. In the book The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, Ponyboy and the Greasers posse live in the poor piece of town, also called the East Side. They are confronted with numerous battles every day particularly in light of the fact that they are Greasers, yet their number one issue was the Socs, the rich children, who lived in the West Side of the town.
But Falstaff’s apathetic character shows that there may not be a good enough reason for anyone to care about anything, and this may be the lesson he wants Hal to learn before Hal loses himself in brainwashing royal duties. Falstaff is significant because he is the control in an experiment. There are characters who are in the heat of the moment, so driven by justice, fear, or honor; in reality, as Falstaff stands on the side as a mindless participator of this nonsense, he shows that none of it
Willy exaggerates to praise himself so that he appears to be wealthy and powerful. Willy says, “I was sellin’ thousands and thousands, but I had to come home”(34), instead of specifying a specific number. He uses “thousands and thousands” to make his selling seem successful, emphasizing the amount of money he made. Willy’s obsession with the business success dream destroyed himself and his family in the
Throughout history, race has been a defining factor in our nation’s society. It has created a distinct divider between the diverse people of this country and has been the cause for severe discrimination over the years. However, one can find it baffling that, of all things, the color of a person’s skin is more important than the virtue of their heart. In response, African American writers have taken it upon themselves to speak out. By sharing their own racially influenced experiences with the public, they have depicted the unfair treatment they have received solely based on their skin color; they have shed light upon the fact that stereotypes unjustly influence they way they are perceived in society .
Once again, Frank is seen wanting to get on tub’s good side. In order to do this, Frank seems honestly apologetic at first, but then fails to show the sympathy by voicing his own problems when he didn’t listen to tub in the first place. Frank then comes into realization of his selfish behavior and throws out a careless apology as though it would fix the situation like it never happened, but knowing it could not pass by as an excuse. The act displayed relates to reality when we feel like we are not given enough attention. It seems as though we need to be the center of attention, especially for those who think the world revolves around them, such as Frank.
Holden “‘[does not] like the idea” of boys doing “crumby stuff” to girls without liking them; such ideas “stink” in Holden’s eyes, but he does not put all of the blame on boys. He says that girls “[are not] too much help, either.” Holden speculates that both sides, male and female, have faults and that there could be improvement. His realizations further bolster his stature on relationships and human tendencies. In conclusion, Holden’s ethos on girls and sexuality tied to them is very unique in comparison to other coequals he encounters in The Catcher in the Rye.
The author Cormac McCarthy just seemed to give us an abundance of tragedy and violence as the father of the boy keeps trying to tell him that they’ll make it even though everything seemed to be bleak. Anybody who used to be anybody was no longer important anymore, no matter what your occupation used to be in the old world. This newer world seems to be extremely backwards and even one of my favorite quotes in the book proves it, “You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” It shows that nothing in the old world matters since all you can seem to remember are the dreadful things in order for you to know that in this time and age the situation are dangerous, which makes you push yourself in order to survive. Since their new world was post- apocalyptic, there is no more relying on law enforcement agencies or in humanity either.
