It is the time when you are mindless, lacking in responsibility, and innocent. This is shown in the little town of Maycomb where Jean Louise (Scout) Finch and Jeremy Atticus (Jem) Finch grew up. Scout, as seen in the novel, is a very mindless child who is not bothered by other people’s opinions. She wore overalls and played with the boys in the neighbourhood. Her family wanted her to appear more feminine so they pointed out that
This is shown when out of the blue Phoebe mentions that she is getting “belching lessons from this girl, Phyllis Margulies” (174), which is a pretty childish thing to do, because as I mentioned before, children do not care about societal norms, and would not care about what other people consider obnoxious or irksome. Phoebe is the innocent child with the slightly grown up mind that Holden not only needs, but also relates
Gratitude and Happiness There are many studies that bind happiness and gratitude. Wood and his colleagues in their work “Gratitude and Well-Being: A Review and Theoretical Integration” (2010) stated that gratitude is strongly related to well-being and this link may be unique and causal. In line with this, Rajan & Easvaradoss (2012) aimed to examine the impact of happiness-related interventions on happiness and gratitude among adolescents from 120 respondents. Their study revealed that happiness has a positive relationship with gratitude and females were happier and more grateful to males and age had no effect on the variables.The finding of Kong et al. (2015) is different as in the study of 427 Chinese undergraduates that males are more grateful than female counterpart of the study.
Parrill also comments on this that “it is evident from this remark… of the way so many of the minor characters are used in comic ways” (2002: 131). DiPaolo believes that Miss Bates is the supporting character who is “most effectively portrayed;” however, she appears “a little younger than one might expect” (2007: 101). And Sue Parrill writes that “by far the most entertaining Miss Bates is that portrayed by Sophie Thompson in the Miramax film” who plays Miss Bates “as a woman in her thirties, her own age. She wears little round glasses, through which she peers at the world. She smiles constantly and chatters good naturedly all of the time she is on screen.
So I have lots of time for crazy thoughts, I guess.” (Bradbury, P. 9) Clarisse’s family is different than the normal family; they talk to each other, and let Clarisse be herself. Therefore, Clarisse never lost her childhood ideals. She is still free the think for herself, be kind, and be curious. When Montag meets Clarisse, the two clash in an interesting way. “You’re peculiar, you’re aggravating, yet you 're easy to forgive.
Tellingly, Educating Rita ends on a neutral note. Education has given Susan the ability to make her own life, not a husband’s life nor her mother’s life. It has given her a sense of purpose and autonomy. Pretty Woman and Educating Rita is similar with regard to the student surpassing the teacher. As Susan exceeds Frank in academic, Vivian morally surpasses Edward since she makes him doubt his
Also, she is said to be A virgin purest lipp 'd, yet in the lore Of love deep learned to the red heart 's core: Not one hour old, yet of sciential brain To unperplex bliss from its neighbor pain; As though in Cupid 's college she had spent Sweet days a lovely graduate, still unshent, And kept his rosy terms in idle languishment.

Charlotte states, "I ask only a comfortable home; and considering Mr. Collins character, connections and situation in life, I am convinced that my chance of happiness with him is as fair as most people can boast on entering a marriage state." (Chapter 22, Page 109) Elizabeth, during these first many chapters, was much like a carefree and witty young woman, however by making such a strong statement against Lady de Bourgh, she has truly rose above that rank to a feminist

The uncommunicative and withdrawn narrator has now finally escaped from her own delusion of the idea that solitude is what makes you the happiest. “It [the tea, red] was good; soporific somehow. I felt as if I would sleep well after drinking it; perhaps better than I had ever done before.” Indubitably, no green tea has any soporific or sleep-inducing effect. The calm and tranquillity, she suddenly feels, must originate from the peace and freedom she has obtained and the social anxiety she has disposed of. Getting used to not taking the challenge of interacting with others can make your everyday life feel as if you were a bird trapped in a cage.
