With each new mountain we cross another land lies waiting for us to conquer. So far every new “country” this word I learned from an older solider, we find it falls due to the might and cunning of our generals much loot has been plundered and many fortresses lay in ruin by our fell hands, but now I feel as though the teachings of Buddha has been lost to me forever for each new land I cross the more lives I have taken many of the men do not feel this pain they live only for the next day the next battle or there inevitable death how can men live like this I do not
He used to say, “learn to die, and you'll learn to live.” That if you strip away all the “stuff” and focus on the essentials, you see everything around you differently. Over the past 14 weeks, I have learned from Morrie, many valuable lessons that we tend to forget as we live our daily lives. Morrie was a strong believer in disregarding popular culture, and living life on our own terms. He used to say, “ sometimes you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own.“ He always told us that society shouldn't be allowed to determine what values you want to follow, choose for yourself.
He wants to know what will happen to him when the weather gets brutally cold. He is pondering on whether or not to go home, which he is deftly afraid of doing, or stay outside and freeze.

Jane Gallagher was an old friend of Holden's whom he mentions quite often throughout the novel. He many times mentions that he will call her, but he never builds up the nerve to.

Despite the considerable amount of experience both climbers have, the chapter title proposes that nature is unpredictable, in spite of the amount of familiarity with climbing. Chapter four is based on Simon and Joe’s climb down the mountain. Previously, they had only just left the summit of the mountain and Joe realises the slow pace to which they are moving at. This suggests that both climbers have been unaware of time and their minds have been busy focusing on something else, most likely nature as they compete in the battle for survival, as Joe explains: ‘I realised how poor the light had become. I checked my watch and was surprised to see that it had gone five o’clock.
We’re out to GET you, Ratchett, and we WILL get you!...We’re going to take you for a ride, Ratchett. Some time soon. We’re going to GET you—see?” (Christie 31) I refused to help him because I feel extreme dislike for him. No amount of money would get me to work for him. Awhile later, M. Bouc gave me his first-class cabin next to Ratchett because he wanted to move to a different coach.
It should be common sense that if you put off your work until later, the amount you will have to do will continue to snowball until it becomes so gigantic that it’s become its own glacier – tall and unshaken. The amount of effort one puts behind their work equates to how far they’re going to get in life (most of the time) and in this case, should a person procrastinate, they will not be able to compete with others studying the same subject in hopes for a future in the same field.
