Also as a child she encounters a passionate love affair, which can be somewhat comparable to her relationships even in old age. • The story-within-the-story aspects reinforces the interesting outlook on life that Alice posseses. It shows how competent she still as a senior, and disproves the mellow life she lives in a retirement community. Her blatant telling of her memories from childhood disturbed most of the other listeners in the writing club, and through this Lee reveals the blinded life that a majority of people carry with them until death. It is a natural defense mechanism to deny troubling truths that one doesn't want a face, and I commend Lee Smith for being one of the brave individuals who can look past their unconscious regulations.
After reading the entire essay, it is clear that the general topic of “On Being a Cripple” is to be content and proud of what you do or do not have. By not calling herself ‘disabled,’ she shows great respect for the fact that she is able to do many things. She does not always let her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) keep her from being herself on a daily basis. Although she admits to having her bad days, she is defiant in the fact that this disease is just a part of life. We all go through life.
I could relate to Maya as in how he’s really nice and caring, and likes to have fun.

His sense of humor how he described April, the spider “It slayed me that she had eight eyes, and that none of them seemed to do her any good. They were more like decoration, really, a splay of beads crowded above her chelicerae (April 4-5). Another comical way he
She often presents a playful good-natured impertinence that does not offend. Early in the novel she is depicted as being personally proud of her mental quickness and her acuity in judging the social behaviour and intentions of others. Of her family, Elizabeth is her father's favourite, described by him as having "something more of quickness than her sisters". In contrast, she is the least dear to her mother, especially after Elizabeth refuses a marriage proposal from Mr. Collins.

During the time period of when this story was written, marriage limited a women’s potential far more than in today’s society. When a traveling salesman came to her home, she asked about his life and responded by saying, “It must be very nice. I wish women could do such things.” (Steinbeck 231) Elisa wants excitement and adventure in her life; she wants to feel important in the world.
Sally Fields plays the role of a loving dutiful mother who faces many challenges along the way. Mykelti Williamson plays Bubba who gives you the sense that Forrest had a genuine friend. His character will move you by the genuine acts he engages in. Robin Wright Penn’s tenderness and pain are palpable as exhibited by the character she plays in the film, Jenny. Lastly, Tom Hanks does a great job at playing Forrest who is a man with a low IQ, yet living through many of life’s historical moments while showing the audience that we need to appreciate the little things in life and not be held back by the obstacles and challenges we face.
The majority of this story explains Della’s love for her husband, Jim. It is particularly apparent from the first paragraph the amount love and respect Della has for him. This is highlighted when Della sells her fantastic, long, treasured hair to buy Jim a gift for Christmas as she had only managed to ‘‘scrape’’ (p.2) $1.87 from her hard earnings. Not only had she worked tirelessly to earn enough money to keep them eating and living under a roof, she wanted to do more to surprise the man she cared for. At this point, I was sure it was Della that worshipped her husband and he was not so devoted to his wife.
