While this idea may be closely related to the premise of trust, it plays its own separate role. On Everest, loyalty by definition means that man will act upon his morals and rescue his fellow climber, even if it leads to their heroic death. Countless times during the climb, clients get into trouble and their guides rush to their assistance, at times climbing for hours and for thousands of extra feet to perform rescues, bring oxygen, or assist in climbing. During those times, loyalty means not hesitating to help someone else for fear of one 's own safety, and the guides and clients that are most trusted among the group are the ones who display loyalty. Lopsang Sherpa is fiercely loyal to Fischer, almost to the exclusion of other climbers.

Moira had bravery when she went in and out of the second tower, as well as bringing out groups and groups of victims.
I think this may have been to make up for the times he climbed on ahead of other climbers despite being a guide. Although he did save Charlotte, Tim and Sandy from certain death. They were stuck on a ledge and lost when Anatoli found them but helped them down to camp even though it may have endangered his life by doing so. These rescue attempts could have contributed to many of the Mountain Madness Expedition surviving the storm. He also stayed on the peak helping other summiters for a time, this helped speed up the process a bit so more people could reach the
In an attempt to protect his brother, the narrator tells Sonny, "you know people can't always do exactly what they want to do" (263). The narrator can not come to terms with the fact that Sonny wants to become a musician and throw away better opportunities upon completion of school. In reality, Sonny was attempting to tell his brother he needed to get away from the streets and start anew.

Both of these themes are portrayed in this book, and should be
Webster’s Dictionary defines character as, “the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual”, these qualities can range from a simple opinion, to an action, to a character’s lifestyle. While Guy Montag from Fahrenheit 451 and Wade from Ready Player One are both uniquely distinct, they share many qualities that unites them as one. The first similarity of the two characters is that they both come from a world where modern technology consumes everyone’s daily lives, and both Wade and Montag must realize that a virtual reality, whilst perfect in sense, is not the truth. Montag realizes this after Clarisse asks him if he is truly happy, his immediate answer is a defensive yes, but after his wife tries to commit suicide, and Montag starts to think about his situation, he realizes that his response to Clarisse was a lie.
