Some people are filled with an insatiable desire to learn. In “Anthem” by Ayn Rand, the main character, Equality 7-2521, wants nothing more than to study the Science of Things and become a Scholar. Although this is forbidden for a Street Sweeper like him, he does research in isolation. He wants to join the Scholars because he is intelligent, inquisitive, and always driven to learn about the way things around him work.

McCandless and Westerberg 's relationship began when, as an act of kindness, Westerberg decided to employ the young man. This soon evolved to be something more than a employer-employee relationship. Initially, Westerberg wanted to help McCandless and "take the kid under his wing," as it is mentioned on page 14. As time passed by, McCandless proved to be a hard and ethical worker which made Westerberg respect and even admire him. Westerberg is a very observant man and he appreciated all the good qualities he was able to see in Alex.
His drive is shown as he wishes to join the council of scholars with an inquisitive brain, wanting to “know about all the things which make the earth around us. We asked so many questions that the Teachers forbade it” (Rand 23). However, the society at hand calls for the smart to do menial labors of which is rather useless to his potential. Equality as a person gains motivation in pursuit of joy whether he realizes it or not, and he enjoys learning and understanding. Equality gets to a point in which he finds joy in discovery, and states (with pride) that “We, Equality 7-2521, have discovered a new power of nature.
Equality 's Motivation In the beginning the three most important motivations were Equality 's motivation to be a scholar, his drive, and his tunnel. Equality is a very smart man who thinks he has a curse. According to Rand "We know not why our curse makes us seek we know what, ever and ever. "(Pg.

A responsible father is one who is known to support their children, solve any problems that may take place and most importantly treat all their children equally. In particular, two pieces of literature, “Taming Of The Shrew”, by William Shakespeare and “To Kill A Mockingbird”, by Harper Lee address the topic of being a father. Although Baptista Minola and Atticus Finch both want a successful future for their children within their own stories, Atticus’ valuable lessons are evident he is the better father out of the two. As Mark Twain has quoted, “Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example”, It is very crucial that all parents set good examples and be positive role models towards their children.
In life, when we accomplish our goals we get so consumed with the happiness from completing it that we forget what made that possible in the first place, hard-work. Everything that I have in my life right now and everything I hope to accomplish in the future is all because of the hard-work and dedication I put into everything I do. This way of life was no different for President Coolidge. The hard-work he put in throughout his youth and continuously into his adult years led him to his success of becoming the 30th President of the United States of America.

A hero is a man of distinguished courage and ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.

He dedicated his life to develop the future of youth and less privileged by giving his time, money and property to accommodate the need of such students.
There are many examples of irony in Anthem that the author uses to carry the plot and deepen the story and an example of irony that some people don't get until later in the book is the idea of "we". Therefore it is ironic that a person wouldn't know the word for one's self. The definition of irony is "the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect. " The use of we is to really push the idea that Equality 7-2521 only thinks as a group. This example is dramatic irony because the readers of Anthem know that Equality 7-2521 is an individual yet still calls himself "we".
