. Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything. Not only did the gang prevent him from finishing his studies, but from overall becoming a high-class man; as Ponyboy had announced to the rest of his

I do admire him for everything he did to be happy. Americans tend to believe that Chris McCandless has been just plain crazy. I do agree with that because everything that he did never went well. McCandless was plain crazy because of his Alaskan journey made him realize how much he missed society, but at the same time he could not be in society because that reminded him of his past when he was with his family. at that time he just wanted to go away from society.
Instead, if they love each other they could find a way to stop this tension. Acts of violence and hate are never the answer to any problem, yet people seek it just to have fun, show pride, or be gallant.

I walked all the way home once in my stocking feet and didn't even notice it until steve made some bright remark about it” (Page 168) The scene never made it in the movie sadly after Dally died. In the movie the scene is replaced with Ponyboy writing the beginning of the movie. Although not having the scene may seem small, it isn't due to the fact that it gives the tone to the audience that Dally was not as an intricate part of the gang.

As Atticus told Scout to now listen to what others are saying and to be nice and be equal to everyone, Atticus did not want Jem and scout to be like all the other kids. This quote relates very well because Atticus tells them that to not be like the other kids and to be equal it shows how the parent has powerful influences over the child and not friends. Clearly, this is agreeable going both ways as in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird and in real life friends that can have powerful influences than a parent. The situation with Arthur in the novel goes well with how he has more powerful influences with friends than with parents. In today’s world, it can be very different depending on the situations, but, the older they get, the more they agree with their friends idea and parents don’t have a powerful influence
