This shows that although Daisy loved him she chose her family over him even though she wasn’t very happy with the decision. For many people money is an important aspect of life. Daisy found money and social status very important in order to keep her somewhat ‘happy’ by getting anything she wanted. Tom Buchanan gave Daisy lots of material things in order to do this. For example of page 74, it quotes that Daisy receives ‘a string on pearls’ the day before her wedding to Tom but also on the same say she also get a letter from her former lover Gatsby, gets drunk after reading it and has a moment where she hesitates about marrying Tom but after she sobers up she ‘squeezed it up in a wet ball……And walked out of the room, the pearls around her neck and the incident was over’ as it also quotes on pages 74 and 75.
Rachel before the trial Rachel is the daughter of Hillsboro’s Reverend Brown. She is a fundamentalist but in my opinion it is not by choice but it is solely because was born to the Reverend. She loves her father dearly but it’s because of her father just the same that has become so one-track minded with her religion. Before the trial when she goes to see Cates, (who is the high school teacher being accused of teaching Darwinism) she wants him to give up Darwinism and to tell the court that what he did was a bad joke and a mistake. She says specifically that “Why can’t you be on the right side of things?”(Page 8).
Throughout the book, Gatsby gains the title of truly being great because he’s in the military, he never stops loving Daisy, and he makes a life for himself. Gatsby is truly great because he went into the military. Gatsby and Nick both served as officers in the war and he told Nick "Then the war came ... it was a great relief, and I tried very hard to die ... " (66). Deep inside, Gatsby knew he would never be good enough for Daisy, and death would've been an easy way out. However, Gatsby survives the war, and comes out with honors and medals.

We’re together now and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
The term “if I should die” was probably a used phrase when the soldiers were writing letters to their loved ones. This poem captures the attitudes of the time of much patriotism. The men were willing to sacrifice themselves for England and dying with happy hearts. The beginning of the war was not as volatile so the view on the war was very calm and collective. The enthusiasm of winning the war and the confidence that it would be over by Christmas was very high.
He, along with Gatsby feels content with the unnecessary materialistic items that he owns. Tom commits the sin of adultery, as well, and takes pride in his mistress. Nick states that, “he had one [ mistress who ] was insisted upon wherever he was known. His acquaintances resented the fact that he turned up in popular restaurants with her and, leaving her at a table, sauntered about, chatting with whomever he knew”
It also shows how much he wanted a “father form heaven”: someone he could rely on to earn for his family and support him. Frank thinks his dead brothers won’t ever have to deal with such worries and not getting what they want. He realizes that death may have not been such a bad thing for Eugene but a way of escaping all of life’s hardships for a much more heavenly place. He even seems to be a bit jealous! This suggests that he thought death was better than life at one point.
She finds the courage to rise up above societies expectation that she stay in this marriage, and walks out: “S’posin’ Ah wuz to run off and leave yuh sometime” (30).

Everyone is your equal, and everyone is equal to you.” He then continued to make the audience laugh by sharing charming anecdotes.

Mrs. Delacroix, obviously a friend and neighbor of Tessie, who just moments before [the stoning] was laughing with Tessie about her forgetfulness, and reassuring her that she was fine for her tardiness. Later, her speedy selection of a “stone so large that she had to pick it up with both hands” reveals that the friendship was not as strong as her blind belief that the lottery was a just judge and her self-righteousness in not being chosen. The large stone was a symbol of
