The Yearling, by Marjorie Rawlings, illustrates how Jody's sense of responsibility helped him to resolve his conflict between meeting his own need to raise the fawn and meeting his family's need for survival. Jody enjoyed the responsibilities of raising the fawn. Jody went looking for moss, grass, and leaves to make a bed for the fawn the first night he got him. Jody liked to go on walks with the fawn especially at morning when there was still dew on the grass and trees. He also liked to sit with Flag holding him and tell him about his day, his adventures, everything.
The author also had the characters using the “B” word a lot when they were talking about Curely’s wife and the mother dog. The language also tells you the time period the characters are set in. The last important thing that I chose was repetition. They repeated words and sentences quite a few times; they said them over and over in the book. Lennie said the word “rabbit” because he wanted a pet rabbit and it symbolized him and George getting their own farm.
The adventurous dreamer dares to go after his personal legend and has and unforgettable quest that takes him from Spain all the way to the Egyptian deserts. He showed his desire to make his dream come true overcoming many obstacles. Santiago wanted to see the world learn about it and have adventures but his parents expected him to become a priest. “One afternoon, on a visit to his family, he had summoned up the courage to tell his father that he didn’t want to become a priest that he wanted to travel” (Coelho 8).

Santiago chooses his Legend and opposes what most people have done; ignore their aspirations. His choice to deny the norm, rebuke his education, disappoint his family, and trust fate proves that he is born to pursue his Personal Legend, thus, initiating the plot. Notably, Santiago is born with an instinctual love for travel and he is naturally curious and passionate in his situations. Santiago’s parents vie for their son to be an educated priest so he can be a source of pride in their village but “ever since he had been a child, he wanted to know the world, and this was much more important to him than knowing God and learning about man’s sins”(Coelho 8). Family honour is important to Santiago’s parents yet he still finds knowledge of the world more essential than the struggle
The Alchemist acted like a teacher, where he taught Santiago not through words but by action. He also roamed across the desert, where he spoke to the sun and the desert. Also, towards the end, Santiago made it through the desert where he saw the beautiful pyramids there, taking in the scene and what he had achieved. There will be many dangerous things waiting throughout your journey. However, these are the challenges that taught us to become stronger and braver during the roughest times.
This journey helps Santiago learn new things about himself and other people. His destiny was right in front of him, but life had to have him go through the entire journey by crossing the dessert to overcoming impossible difficulties to find his treasure.

Roosevelt had once stated, “Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.” This quote clearly meant that we aren’t in control of fate, but we are in control of our actions and decisions. Catcher in the Rye and The Alchemist relates to this quote.
They all agree until they find out that Everyman will not be returning. His dearest friend, Fellowship, deceives him. Followed by his family, Cousin and Kindred. Everyman then sets his sights to his material items, Goods, who also deceives him. Everyman looks to Strength, Beauty, Discretion,
