People may be scared to do something different because they don't know what the outcome will be; they are scared to take a chance or a risk. People may resist change because of lack of control or reward. My husband is the kind of person who is resistant to change because of lack of control. He likes to have control over things in his life and if something happens out of his control he has a hard time handling it at first. If there is a lack of reward then people may resist.
Because of his fear of the Nazis and his fear of losing his dad he was able to survive. Without those emotions he would have no chance. Those are a few reasons why I think the quote "All Literature shows us the power of emotion, It is emotion, not reason, that motivates characters in literature." Is true. Even though the good thing maybe there the characters keep going in opposite directions or other directions because they feel that 1 to be the right or don't care what happens to them as long as they go that
When I was younger all I wanted to do was find some way to fit in, even though there is no point in trying and fit in when you were born to stand out and be different than everyone else. Everyone tends to adapt and conform to what other people think is cool. Sometimes it’s hard to try and stand out though because others who think they are better than you are constantly judging, even though God created everyone as equal. I myself am sometimes scared to do something outside of the “normal”. My friends are constantly asking why I care what others think and I still haven’t really figured that out yet.

Many people believed it was crazy, but it was what Chris wanted that was of the most importance. And in a country where “individualism” is promoted, through his journey Chris McCandless showed that people are not as different as they consider themselves to be. Though his method of finding himself may not be popular amongst many, the importance was that he fulfilled what he had believed to be his destiny, to simply be set apart from the
As tough as it is to fight a cancer as severe as that, he says it was his profession that helped him fight it. His profession taught him how to fight and compet against all odds and obstacles.

In order for Armstrong to cherish his life in a new perspective was cancer to revive him. “The truth is that cancer was the best thing that ever happened to me.
We need an option, and being optimistic may give us false promises or facades to see one thing and create inability to be resilient with the other available options. Being realistic is also applicable in our relationships. When relating to people, we can always see good things within our friends, yet similar to all things, humans are not perfect. The realistic outlook can help us understand human imperfection and not overestimate the relationship so that it can’t let us as down as not being able to move on at all. There are cases where our loved ones pass away or they are far away from us.
Veterans keep the story alive of the wars they fought in and teach the younger generations. I cannot imagine a world without veterans, the freedom lost, the patriotism missing from our hearts. Veterans have stood up for our country and helped us get some of the things we have now. They protected our nation, and without them our country may not have had a future. They kept us safe, sacrificing their lives to save ours.
This doesn’t mean we should all go out and be terrible people just so we will appreciate our good experiences, but rather that we should learn from our mistakes. Lance Armstrong’s view of life is similar to this; he says that sometimes life is fun, and great, and other times it is horrible, but whether good or bad our experiences make us stronger people.

Early thinkers of this movement wanted to separate themselves from tradition by reexamining every aspect of their lives, but they were rejected by the majority of society who were afraid of change. By reevaluating their lives, it caused them to realize what was holding them back from the progress that they desired. They then replaced it with the new that was both progressive and better at reaching the desired end. This illuminates life because it motivates the individual to try and make their life better. Life is all about improvements, not about being at a stand still of moderate satisfaction.
