How Adventurous is Tom Sawyer? How adventurous can a boy get? In Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer is very adventurous because he is always looking for a challenge, he makes things more complicated for some extra fun, and he even thinks being gravely injured just makes things more interesting.
In the book “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer, Chris McCandless had many decisions to leave his old life behind and start over. Chris’ decision to leave was justified for the following reasons. When he suddenly disappeared, it made it easier for him to let go of his past and focus on what he wants to do in the future.

Grant did not want to see Jefferson as another black person walking down to that chair with nothing left in them, he didn't want to see himself in Jefferson, he wanted him to be
Wanda Sykes once quoted, “If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and do it.” This exhibits the idea of not letting others hold you back from pursuing a personal desire, or having a passion. Countless amounts of people follow what everyone else believes, but do not seem to recognize the truth behind what they’re following. Similarly, within The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “Antigone,” both characters have a devotion for a specific situation. Additionally, these two literary characters have a strong passion, but ultimately face different opponents.
Father states “He won’t amount to anything anyway. It’s better if he starts working with me now so that he can help the family. ”(Valdez 631) Although Father state this about the younger brother, but it is also implying that this has happened to Johnny already .

Overall, he was amateurish and incompetent person that could not accomplish his dream, but did inspire endless people to follow their dreams and achieve nature tranquility.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Leadership is one of the themes that William Golding uses throughout his novel, Lord of The Flies. Although some characters show potential for leadership, Piggy’s potential is incomparable. Piggy displays the most luminous potential for leadership in Lord of the Flies in view that he abide by what is morally right, and has strong intellectual brainpower.
