We know that Hera sent a Argus Panoplies after Io, but she never gave up. Her wanders around the world lead her to Prometheus, but she is tired. Io’s personality is opened her. She tried to survive in the hope of forgiveness, but now is to tired and ready to take her fate. The phrases “Burn me with fire, let the earth swallow me, throw me as food for sea-serpents” further show her despair for forgiveness, and acceptance of circumstance.
Even though he has a feeling of guilt and remorse, the speaker decides “it would be a sin not to enjoy” all of the things he has. His indifferent tone causes the reader to contemplate their life and all of the hard workers it takes to help them get somewhere big like the speaker.

Throughout the novel, Solomon’s goal is to achieve transcendence, but every time he is on the cusp of succeeding, he is denied. Similar to Sisyphus, Solomon continues to push to reach his goal. For Solomon, his goal is to transcendence so he can “see everything,” but this makes him leave behind the ignorance that kept him content with life in the Dungle (Patterson 215). Since Solomon can “see the whole extent of the sky,” or the entirety of his life, he is able to see how monotonous and fruitless the human life is and the endless cycle of hopeless poverty the people in the Dungle face (Patterson 215). Another point that reinforces the meaninglessness in Solomon’s life is in Sic Vitae.
Although many did see the event as that, other sources appealing to rhetoric saw it the complete opposite. These authors shared a common standpoint of the moon landing calling it insignificant and America wasting money on this space development event when America could have used it on other substantial and important issues. Herblock’s Transported features a man on the moon, in this drawing cartoon the man is fixated on a television and it is dark and gloomy beneath him which is Earth. On Earth, it has words on clouds, “war”, “poverty”, and “prejudice.” Herblock’s intentions in this was to show those glorifying the Apollo 11 event, first humans on the moon, do not notice what goes around the world with real issues, such as war and poverty. Herblock makes a perfect attempt on unmasking the negative and poor side of a worldwide victory and success, this proves those coming together (around the world) for a worldwide “phenomenon” but when bigger issues shown in his cartoon, examples of more significant things than the moon landing, in which many are unaware of the issues.

No need for pointing fingers at each other when no action is being done. It 's useless and a waste of resources and time. Current the main issue is difference.When a person is exposed to change they can either embrace the change with open arms or don 't like the thought of change. There is evidence that changing certain things caused a sense of rejection at first before it slowly becomes the norm. People have to remember the earth is constantly changing and the types of problems never always stay the same.
The three symbols lead to the conclusion that people rush through life trying to live the very best one, but miss out on so much in doing so. People overlook the nature surrounding them as they get caught in a routine without any adventure. How disappointed Henry David Thoreau would be to see people moving in a flurry of speed from here to there wasting time in traffic and working meaningless jobs. He stated in his essay Walden, “why should we live with such hurry and waste of life?” believing that people spend too much time on the details of life. At the end of Walden, Thoreau writes “I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there.
In the essay “Unhappily Ever After,” Augusten Burroughs focus on unhappiness to a great extent because he is an unhappy person and he, as many people, happiness is something that he would always look for. He says that saying “I just want to be happy” is a way to say that we are not happy and that we are looking for that happiness to fulfill us as human beings. He addresses that people want to be happy but they do not want to sacrifice anything or simply they do not look for a appropriate way to do it. Although, doing all of this things might not work for everyone, not even for him. He says that there are people like him that are not happy, instead what he can do is to be interested or fascinated to find a meaning to life.
This passage reflects not only a passing of time, but also that Neddy’s memory is obviously apprehensive and erroneous. Neddy’s inability to remember substantial details about his neighbors indicates that he has been dangerously unfocused with his everyday life. Suggesting that depression or some other type of psychological illness could be distracting Neddy, rendering him incompetent of separating his memories from the reality which surrounds him. Also the fact that the Welcher’s pool has dried up is also imperative because it epitomizes an intermission in his journey, just as a midlife crisis interposes the previously smooth lives of men and women in our society. Midlife crises are commonly alleged to be experienced during the ages of 40 and 60, in which it can be presumed Neddy is perhaps somewhere in this age range.
