The rain symbolized the rebirth of their relationship but also the anxiety Gatsby felt in the situation. This was what he had waited for his whole life so the rain acts to show the nerves he felt. Nick describes that Gatsby “...was standing in a puddle of water glaring tragically into my eyes”(Fitzgerald 86). The rain represents the feelings that overwhelmed Gatsby. However, Gatsby’s dream of being with Daisy died with him.
The chance to visit an average place like Sawyer’s Depot with John during Christmas made Owen ecstatic. From this, it’s possible that Owen’s desire to fight in Vietnam was not only fueled by his desire to carry out his fate, but to also travel. It’s important to note that Owen pushed hard to go to Vietnam because he had envisioned his sacrifice to occur in a warm climate. While Vietnam was indeed a warm climate, Owen’s ultimate sacrifice came in Arizona, showing that his vision had come true, but not in the way he had expected. This only further demonstrates that fate can not be
On the Sidewalk Bleeding: Andy’s Journey from Innocence to Experience Everyone has heard the saying “Expect the unexpected”, but does society really live by that? Sometimes life seems to be going so well that one may think that they are lucky, and that nothing will go wrong. But in reality, it is once one gets comfortable that things start to go wrong. Andy’s story is a great example that demonstrates that nobody can live life being 100% comfortable. In the narrative, “On the Sidewalk Bleeding”, written by Evan Hunter, a true message hides behind the words, explaining the tragic life-ending story of Andy.
He knows that he is quicker minded than the rest of his brothers, “It was not that the learning was too hard…. the learning was too easy” (21). Thus, he is trying to achieve his full potential as an individual after being suppressed for so long. Furthermore, he wants to be recognized by the House of Scholars and join them in scientific discovery. He has always wanted to join the House of Scholars and discover the world around him, “We think there are mysteries in the sky…water...plants… We loved the science of things,” Now, being assigned as a street sweeper, he is not satisfied with the job he has been given, and Equality is looking for other creative outlets to express himself.
Success and Happiness Through Perseverance In order to achieve a happy and successful life, both The Odyssey and “Ulysses” show that perseverance is the most important quality to possess in life because one can accomplish missions and pursue passions. Some may believe that perseverance is only used to get through troubles and does not result in happiness, but in The Odyssey by Homer, Odysseus perseveres through many trials to accomplish is mission. As Odysseus is preparing his men to sail past the Sirens, he states, “what death we baffle if we can” (723). To put it differently, Odysseus is saying that he and his men must survive at all costs in order to complete their goal. Odysseus’ objective is to make it home to Ithaca safely.
Everyone experiences jealousy at some point in their life, and it usually ends up hurting them because they want to know the feeling so badly. In the short story “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury and in the song “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers, they both show how jealousy can hurt you and in some cases, someone else. In “All Summer in a Day” all the kids are waiting to see the sun for the first time on the planet Venus where the sun comes every seven years. All the kids are from Venus, except for Margot, who lived on Earth until she was four, and she remembers what the sun looks like.
A Simple Decision Making decisions in life is like growing a flower. Each and every day it may seem like nothing has changed, but later in the future, every choice one makes will lead to a blooming future. Some decision results little to no effect, while others, leave collateral damage affecting one’s life forever and those around them. Many ordinary decisions can end in regret; on the other hand, constructing a right decision can also leave great memories. The book I Am A Seal Team Six Warrior by Stephen Templin clearly interprets Howard E. Wasdin’s extraordinary life of becoming a soldier who protects the country he loves.
The quote ‘What would I gain if I took it to court’, supports my statement. Another quote, “But I built my perfect nest, and it's ‘bout to fall apart again and again and then i just make it twice as high” shows his optimism and how failure won't stop him from accomplishing his goals. Most of the metaphors and lyrics were meant to show Watsky's personality- the theme of the song. Some of the quotes represent optimism or a will to succeed. A different
Chris McCandless moved out of his comfort zone into a place he's completely unfamiliar with and filled with many challenges to be faced. A great quote from the books said: "The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun" (57). Many people can relate to this, because they too have dreams they are afraid to pursue. Nowadays people are fine with living regular everday comfortable lives instead of risking their comfort because they're afraid to pursue their dreams just because it might be too hard or difficult for them to achieve.
A survivor 's eyes sees purpose to look into a brighter future. When one has a purpose in life it helps them move forward and not just sit around and keep living in a bad circumstance. One can focus on their bad situation a little too much but if one has a purpose to succeed and thrive it helps them change the present and have a better future. Kayla montgomery, a teenager surviving with M.S, has a purpose in life to be a good runner and keep on going even when she falls, she says, “ I 've trained myself to think about other things while I race, to get through. But when I break the motion, I can 't control them and I fall” (Crouse).
Society see’s illusions and has ignorance until they reach reality. To continue, Fitzgerald created Gatsby as a character that is unwilling to stop until he is with the love of his life, Daisy. “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter-tomorrow we will run faster, stretch our arms farther….and one fine morning-” (Fitzgerald 154). Fitzgerald added in the detail of “run faster, stretch our arms farther…” to show that society will do whatever they need to do to try to attain their end goal, even when not attainable.
Life is a precious thing. The ability to walk on this earth is so divine that we humans take it for granted. We all take it for granted until we realize that we are not immortal. Everyone dies at some point and simply living infinitely is not a choice. However, we wish life was an eternal thing, for then we would have time to subjugate our fears and accomplish our dreams.
In both the story and the movie of “All Summer in a Day,” it is clearly shown that there is much jealousy that can be found through Margot. For example, this happens when, in both the movie and the story, the children are running out to the sun. The text states, "And the jungle burned with sunlight as the children, released from their spell, rushed out, yelling, into the springtime... And then-- In the midst of their running, one of the girls wailed. Everyone stopped. The girl, standing in the open, held out her hand.
