It implies that to truly live life, one must seek simplicity, harmony with nature, and to follow one’s own path. Thoreau strongly believes and advocates that those who live lives of luxury and in mainstream culture created by the Industrial Revolution aren’t really living.

The more complicated fine distinctions of the world of books are available to him only when he leaves his reductionist society. Bradbury does not realize just how unhappy he is with his life and the world he lives in until Clarisse talks about her "strange" family, the one that actually converses with each other and enjoys nature. Bradbury show just how much Clarisse’s way of life is unaccepted in Montag’s world with the quote spoken by Clarisse, “White blurs are houses. Brown blurs are cows.

Without strong parental guidance and honesty Milkman has trouble finding the true identity of himself. The trouble within both Ruth and Macon Jr. reflects negatively upon Milkman, leaving him lost and unfocused. Morrison portrays this conflict in Ruth, "because the fact is that I am a small woman.
