In the last chapter, he says, "I sort of miss everybody I told about" (214).

Another example of irony is when Eighner mentions the students who “throw out canned goods and staples at the end of semesters when they give up college at midterm” (Eighner 111).

In this case, the student is even more wasteful at a time where they should worry about how they will be able to afford items in the
The theme demonstrated in this passage is also demonstrated throughout the entire novel. One example of escape in the novel is when life gets too hectic for the family in New Rochelle and they decide that there is no better way to make their lives less hectic than leaving town for a while. "What we have to do, Father said, is get away...,"(Doctorow 234). This occurs after Younger Brother disappears and Mother and Father realize that they need to escape from their daily lives until the attention being paid to their family is diverted to other occurrences. This passage also helps the reader appreciate when Younger Brother stands up for himself at the dinner table.
Throughout the majority of the play, Walter wants to change the way they live and constantly tries convincing his mother to use the insurance money to start a liquor store. I chose this excerpt because I thought it was interesting how Hansberry chose to use Walter having the same breakfast as him trying to express there not being change around the apartment. This connects to the U.S history packet when it talked about the African Americans headed off to war and being treated better out there than back at home, and then when they got home they wanted home. Near the end of the play on page 148 when Walter has to decide if the family keeps the house or receives the money he says this to Lindner: Walter. And we have decided to move into our house because my father- my father- he earned it for us brick by brick.
Holden’s attitude to saying goodbye to Pencey Prep At the start of the book Holden says: Chapter 1:“What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by. I mean I've left schools and places I didn't even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don't care if it's a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse.” (Salinger 2010: 4) Holden is angry and disappointed with the people around him, but even with this feeling of anger and disappointment towards these people, he wants a good bye from these people.

Regardless of the request of his family and teachers to surrender this all-expending interest he proceeded on. He did not do anything with his "free time" but think about this investigation of human liveliness. He dismissed some other thing in life that brought him bliss, so he truly became the distraught researcher that we as a whole know from popular culture. Telling that when Frankenstein took breaks to go home, his energy would be tempered, he would acknowledge what genuinely brought him delight in life, and he would be joyful. Be that as it may, at that point he would come back to school, and proceed with his goal.
He himself though did not finish college because he did not have the passion in the classes he was taking. He drop out school and took classes that will interest him. He had to the kids that they should find a job that they love or are passionate to do. He use facts to show that anyone can be affected by what they do. He gave a inspiring tone to his speech.
Keating wastes no time to reassure and comfort his students. Keating tells one student “ I think you're wrong I think you have something inside of you that is worth a great deal”. ( Keating).
