The tone that Krakauer conveys in his text includes: hopefulness, anxiety, frustration, pensiveness, and sorrow. A few of the word choices he chooses are intensely, happiness, and expectations. At the exposition of the story, Krakauer is hopeful that he will be able to climb the mountain. During his climb becomes really focused yet a sense of happiness when he says, “By and by, your attention becomes so intensely focused that you no longer notice the raw knuckles, the cramping thighs, the strain of maintaining nonstop concentration…. At such moments, something like happiness stirs in your chest, but it isn’t the sort of emotion you want to lean on very hard.” (133) These sentences allow the reader to understand how he is feeling and what he is going through.
Lastly Odysseus is not only courageous but intelligent. He is intelligent because when they had to go through Sirens Island he told his men to put wax on their ears so they don't hear the sirens. Another example of odysseus being intelligent is when he was on Calypso’s island he didn't tell her how much he missed his wife to not get her jealous which could stop her from helping him. another example of Odysseus being smart is when he got polyphemus drunk with wine and poked his eye to get out of the

Curley did everything in his power to seem important but got knocked down several pegs when Lennie broke Curley 's hand with little to no effort Though all of these examples of text in the novella Of Mice and Men we can tell that Steinbeck was passionate about displaying the american dream in as many ways as possible.

Napoleon has also released many chants to help rally the animals on the farm. The satire present here is that the altering of the ten commandments effectively portray how the absurd the concept is. There is no way that animals could become, “more equal” than others. In the beginning of the novel, Old Major expressed that the animals shall overcome their oppressors, but the pigs become the oppressors. Through their chants and the ten commandments, the citizens are brainwashed to believe that everything is just and fair because when the commandments and chants were first written or said, everyone was in agreement, and believed it was fair.
“The Devil’s Thumb” and “Everest” Perhaps there is one accomplishment everyone needs to feel complete whether that is something along the lines of making an advancement in something say cancer, and while that may be true others have what may seem to be a little more trivial goals and not as illusory when compared to one extravagant as that. In this case, John Krakauer sets out to try and make something meaningful with his life by climbing The Devil’s Thumb in “The Devil’s Thumb.” Some may regard this dream of one that is of a gratuitous or even a spurious one because there is not any real reason why he feels like this will help him to feel accomplished in life other than the fact that it is something he has never tried to do before. Similarly, Erik Weihenmayer sets out to do to the same thing as Krakauer with Mount Everest
Compare/Contrast Theme Essay By being too greedy, you will probably end up with nothing. This is a good theme for both of the two fables, The Dog and His Reflection, retold by Tony Payne, and The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs, retold by Nicky Grischotti. In both fables, the characters are greedy. They both wanted more of what they already had. When they tried to get more, though, they lost what they had and didn’t gain any more.
His vice is that he and his grandfather drank a fizzy lifting drink which almost killed them both and cost him the grand prize of a lifetime supply of chocolate. The transitive effect of his actions threatened the lifetime supply of chocolate and trust from Willy Wonka. Charlie never concerned about the chocolate, instead his concern was to have fun and share the experience with Grandpa Joe. This leads to the end of the story where Grandpa Joe states that he and Charlie are going to sell the everlasting gobstopper to other candy-makers, but Charlie said no. The intransitive effect of his actions of stealing the fizzy drink could have gotten him kicked out and the new owner could have been impatient Mike and put his own needs before others.
After climbing the ladder of success, more and more people come to realize that this is not actually what they were looking for and that money and fame can’t buy real happiness. Therefore, I came to realize that there are two different types of success: extrinsic and intrinsic. However, most people get confused and look towards extrinsic success, which is money, fame, and recognition from others, even though they should look towards intrinsic success, such as true happiness and passions. But in order to switch from external to internal goals one has
This amazing people by climbing the Everest enjoy the fear the life can give to us, they can set goals/dreams, and become successful by achieving their goal of climbing this powerful mountain.
