It is his connection to his feelings that are reserved for only a few that he believes that he can trust. Holden holds the glove dear to his heart because it is the only thing left that he has with his brother. The way Holden wants to catch the other children from falling off the cliff is the same way he wishes that he could 've saved his brother. In a conversation with Phoebe Holden says," I know he 's dead… Just because somebody 's dead you don 't just stop liking them forgot sakes especially if they were about 1000 times nicer than the people you know that are alive and all." (Salinger 189).
I believe this letter will keep the bond between these three characters forever strong, and supportive of each other. Ponyboy also realizes that both brothers are equally cared for by Darry, in the beginning of the book Ponyboy felt he never earned the same respect as Soda, but the letter changed that. The quote "You hurt the ones you love the most" definitely relates to the relationship of Darry and Ponyboy. In my opinion you could see a different side of Ponyboy after he read the letter, there was almost a sence of light, and happiness I 've never seen, especially during a crisis.
Society chooses to believe a fake reality rather than facing the real problems going on. This false reality prevents society from being aware of the government's choices and intentions. The story Fahrenheit 451 is a perfect example of this because in the story it portrays the loss of human connection, censorship, and emotion. For example, in the story Montag loved his wife Millie but, after she was gone he realized he did not love her, even though they were married for ten years. In the society Montag lives in, everyone is “happy” and no one ever knows why they, they just know it is the right thing.

"Cheer up and dry your damp eyes" shows that he cares. Adam didn't even want his friend to be sad for a second because clearly they hadn't been crying that long if their eveys were only damp and not soaked. The anaphora "rainbow above you" has positive connotation. I think it is repeated multiple times to show that Adam's friend hass happiness around them, because they give it away, but they don't have any for themselves. They are too busy trying to make other people happy that they forgot about themselves, which leads to them being sad and scared.
After Victor finally finishes his dreadful invention, he believes that his creature is absolutely perfect because of all the effort it took to construct; it took countless months and many sleepless nights. However, what he saw in his eyes didn’t fill his heart with joy, but with disgust after he realizes what a huge mistake he made. Mary Shelley presents irony by describing the creature as flawless, but in reality it has no human features. By using irony, it helps the reader understand how proud Victor felt to create life, but also feel the pain when it wasn’t as he expected. Through this, it can be determined that Victor was naive at first because he did not consider the consequences of his creation.

I’ve come to terms that not all memories are happy but they are the reasons happy ones can be so much better. That being said, I’ve grown up fortunate. I have a happy family with both parents, a house, and I’ve never been deprived in a survival way. Watching the PBS video I was sad with how many letters Andre Fenton was receiving of people wanting to erase their memories, one guy even going as far to say he wouldn’t mind even if it meant losing all of his memories. At first, I thought how amazing it could be if we could erase memories because I first thought of criminals possibly getting a second chance-if they were able to start completely fresh.
Despite the fact that students are primarily motivated through the extrinsic rewards of grades, it only seems to create more distress in their lives. Secondly, in Barwick’s essay, Mr. Burns visions his long lost teddy bear as something that can provide him eternal happiness although even with the bear Mr. Burns is discontent with his life. For example, Mr. Burns is still unhappy even though “he was reunited with his precious teddy bear, Bobo” (Paragraph 3). Even though Mr. Burns thought the bear would bring happiness back into his life, Burns still was depressed with his life. Thirdly, in Heron Jones’s poem “Somnambulist”, workers are extrinsically motivated to earn promotions, thus voluntarily helping the bosses reach their goals, yet it only adds to the misery in the lives.
