When he first made his shift this came to his mind, “’It took some man a lifetime maybe to put some of his thoughts down, looking around at the world and life and then I came along in two minutes and boom! It’s all over”’ (Bradbury 49). Montag is saying that he regrets becoming a fireman and burning down someone’s hard work just so no one can learn.

Frankenstein 's Journey In Mary Shelley 's “Frankenstein”, Victor Frankenstein seeks out a commodity for all of his stored feelings and unspoken thoughts after the loss of his mother. Reanimation of sewn body parts to create life also create a disgust like feeling due to the action Victor has taken against nature itself. “I had worked hard for nearly two years, for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body.”(47) Although Frankenstein takes on the power of god by reanimating life, he cannot carry the burden of his actions. This results in loss and hardship he cannot handle. “...it may be imagined that while during every hour of my infant life I received a lesson of patience, of charity, and of self control, I was so guided by a silken cord that all seemed but one train of enjoyment to me.”(27) Frankenstein’s recollection of his early years is that of love and happy remembrance.

With all the time these people have spent trying to think of fake theories, imagine what they could have been doing with their lives instead. The earth is one thing that everyone wonders who created it?
In the story "The Lottery," one theme that could be found would be to not do something just because it 's always been done. In this story, villagers have a drawing every year and pick one person to stone to death, as a sacrifice for good crops. This is obviously a very horrific and barbaric tradition, but people continue to do it because they believe it will bring the town good crops. The reveal of what the lottery actually is doesn 't come until the end of the story, and is a big shock to the reader. This is because of how the author portrayed the setting.
“Why didn’t you pay it before?” “ I was pretty sick about that. I waited too long to help another man”(6). This ending was not expected in the beginning, however there was a little of foreshadowing towards it. One example of it is when the teacher made a rude comment and no one stood up for him just a few tears from his crush. It is a periodic ending because we didn’t really know where he was going with the story, it wasn’t until the end that we fully understood that he was talking about standing up for
Even the water that Nya gets with much pain and suffering is muddy and infected with Guinea Worms. Another reason perseverance is an important theme in A Long Walk to Water is because Salva had to cross the Aboko desert for 3 days. Also, “Salva’s shoes stood no chance against the hot stony desert ground. page 52 ,” which means that Salva's shoes were reduced to shreds and he had to walk on the hot ground for 3 days. Also, because Salva’s shoes broke, he lost a toenail by hitting it on a rock and still had to keep walking.
