Living in the post-apocalyptic, Ely loses the desire for tomorrow and believes the future is nonexistent. Ely says, “People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn’t believe in that. Tomorrow wasn’t getting ready for them. It didn’t even know they were there.” (168) Ely expected no tomorrow, he considers each second as life threatening.
BARRY Goddamn it dude, come on. I don 't need every single fucking person checking on me to see if i 'm okay, i 'm fi- Marcus No, you 're not dude... You, are not okay. You don 't eat, you don 't sleep, hell you 've basically stopped going to school. BARRY I go to school. Marcus Well it sure doesn 't look that way.
Some awful pain inside me.” (95) Additionally, Walter even decides that he can’t trust anybody anymore, “..Mama you know it’s all divided up. Life is. Sure enough. Between the takers and the ‘tooken’...” (89) and soon starts to fear that his life will always be an existence of nothing. “Sometimes it’s just like I can see the future stretched out in front of me — just plain as day...” (226) Likewise, another instance is that Beneatha 's thinks she will never be a doctor and never will be anything throughout life.
What do you do or where do you go when you feel like everything is completely pointless? How do you dig yourself out of the ever growing pit you have fallen into and who do you ask when everyone is just like you? In The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster, a young boy named Milo saw no meaning of anything in his life. He didn’t see the point of solving useless problems or spelling words he’ll never say, and since no one bothered to explain otherwise, he thought seeking knowledge was the greatest waste of time. Using a tollbooth he found in his room and his electric car, he travels to an alternate world where he meets people and creatures that change his life forever.
When Goneril and Regan feign to love their father beyond words, they did this to gain their share of the kingdom. The only person who loves without asking anything in return rejects speech, so Cordelia says, “What shall Cordelia speak? Love, and be silent” (Shakespeare 1.1.68). Words are unnecessary for true love that exists in the silence of devoted actions. Likewise, Edmund lies to his father about the letter to gain his trust and ruin Edgar’s reputation.
Milo is a very lonesome boy who thinks everything is a waste of time: “It seems to me that almost everything is a waste of time.”(Juster 9). That all changes when his curiosity gets the best of him when he found out how Rhyme and Reason got banished. He goes out on a quest to bring back Rhyme and Reason, but he does not do it alone. Beside him throughout the whole entire story is his two friends he makes during the book Tock and the Humbug. Tock is a big watchdog that keeps track of time in the Doldrums, and he patrols around the Doldrums to keep them from wasting any time: “He’s always sniffing around to see that nobody wastes time.”(Juster 28).
I don 't care much about where I live as long as I have a reason to live there, my computer and a pile of books. I wouldn 't want to move to Perth, because I don 't think there 's anything for me. I doubt I would enjoy the lifestyle; I don 't care about beaches or barbeque, I don 't want to hang out with my neighbours drinking beer and doing nothing constructive. Neither do I care about "the world 's best food" nor "the best wine" - I 'm not much of an epicure. I wouldn 't even like the weather, because if I could decide the temperature would always be 23 - 24°C.
To outsiders, he resembled a kicked puppy, with his whole demeanor. Apparently they heard him, because the next thing he saw was the door being flung open, and there were three guilty faces looking at him. Poseidon cleared his throat. "Percy–" "No, no, no, no," He kept on repeating, still shaking his head repetitively. His throat suddenly felt dry, and with his best friend 's gaze trained on him, along with his father and teachers, he did the only thing that felt natural to him: he ran.
On the island, the boys are continually arguing, especially when a rift occurs between the group of boys. One example of Piggy’s effort to resolve the problems boys have is when Ralph goes to Castle Rock to confront Jack. Piggy helps Ralph by repeating, “‘Ralph remember what we came for. The fire. My specs.’ Ralph nodded.

The operator says. "Hey my name is Kevin Cloud, I live on 47 Williams Street. I am home alone a man broke into my house. I need someone over here now, I don 't know where he is, and I 've hidden myself in the trunk of my car." "Alright son, can you give a description of him."
“That was where the pain came from. That where all the hurt came from, but he will kill them all, he would-” (Stephen King Dust Jacket.) Cujo is a novel about a dog that contracts rabies from a bat-which causes him to massacre innocent people. Cujo makes a statement about people or the world because of how real the situation actually is, when it comes to pets, broken cars, and relationships. The story is about the Trenton family, Vic, Donna, and their six year old son Tad, who go to get their car repaired.
For example, on page 127, Jack stated "Who thinks Ralph oughtn 't to be chief?" He looked expectantly at the boys ranged round, who had frozen. Under the palms there was deadly silence. "Hands up," said Jack strongly, "whoever wants Ralph not to be chief?" Nobody respond to Jack, which got him angry that nobody agreed to him so he left.
Why, oh why, at that moment I wanted to take a straight trip to a deserted Island and never come back. I even started imagining myself in place full of unicorns just so, I wouldn’t have to participate in the massacre of the fetal pig. I simply decided to be absent. However, as usual the odds are never in my favor. I later found out that attendance was mandatory and there wouldn’t be anything to make up for this missing grade.
