But it was because he didn’t appreciate stuff or people. He just thought about working and making money, well that’s what I think. For example, the book says this, "What else can I be," returned the uncle, "when I live in such a world of fools as this?

A brave leader gives hope to his people in times of need and does not hide behind walls in seclusion and lets his people suffer and perish. It is unfortunate that Prince Prospero, because of his great fear of death, tries to thwart it by building a fortressed castle and hiding behind these impenetrable walls. He must have thought that hiding and secluding inside his castellated abbey with his chosen friends could have protected him from the Red Death.

Thoreau does not follow such a distasteful lifestyle, which proves his dissatisfaction for society and his will to resist the routine lifestyle. Instead, he is devoted to his own morals and is not easily persuaded by society’s temptations, such as the luxurious items advertised in poster boards during his visit to town.

"When I pay a days wages for no work". Scrooge said this while talking about christmas to the clerk who asked if he could have christmas day off, to which Scrooge said no.
