A person like Chris McCandless who has everything in the world is still unsatisfied on what is around him. He has family, money and a great education that will soon be his great future but he thinks that everything related to wealth is sinful. Chris made a journey to search for the true meaning of life and escaped it pressures. He also tried to travel by using his instincts in life by living naturally without other's aide.

Happy has lived in the shadow of Biff his whole life, he feels that to get the attention he deserves he must strive to be more successful than his brother. When Willy was talking about Biff, Happy kept hinting that he was losing weight, but Willy seems to ignore him. “He is a marked-down version of his father, with not even a grand dream to cover his grossness. His only redeeming aspect is an easy-going fondness for his family” (Koon pg.37). Happy shows
Jim's father expect to much from his son without even noticing what could be the major problem. Of course many college students love to hang out with friends but that doesn't mean that it can affect there grades unless they are not focus on there work. When Jim's father stated that when he was in school he flew through without any problems. His parents are angry because his grades aren't getting any better.

Eventually, Chen Da became clear of what he has to do to pay his family back, and that’s the power of family. Chen Da’s family gave him power to become what he is
He always had some resolves like this or something’”(173). Gatsby works and works for his wealth, his whole life spent in a quest for monetary success and eventually Daisy after “he wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath”(110). And although he has these things for a small amount of time, it is important to look at the situation after Gatsby is killed. One of the most important factors of his funeral is that: “Nobody came”(174). He did not truly make any friends through his wealth, and his money is no use to him now that he is dead.
Although evolution plays a role in how long you live, he plans to live life while still in his prime. Emanuel states 2 different points, “Living too long/death is a loss.”(75). Death can contribute the way others remember you and the impact you made on their lives. Death can deprive you from the people you love and time spent. Living too long on the other hand, leaves a negative impact as well because there are terminally ill individuals out there who need the good, compassionate death so they would no longer suffer being alive and having the illness drag them down.
The children would bring him stuff to drink and eat but they never once brought him help. After finding the man there is no telling how long the man has been in the well, all we know his he needed help out. The man couldn’t see much from inside the well but he could hear everything around him. The man pleaded for them to go get help for him “ get a ladder, get help” (4 ) but the kids did nothing. Instead of getting help for the man the children lied to him repeatedly answering almost every question that was asked with “ My father said he’s coming with the police and they know what todo (28) and “ My father said don’t worry because
Instead of teaching full time at the school he just taught par time and worked part time at the bar. Once he got laid off from the school his wife left him and left him a note saying “ you are a failure, you will never make any money, and you will never go anywhere in life”. That note was his inspiration throughout the film and every time he would get his ass kicked, have a rough game, or felt like he couldn't do something he looked to the note and always rose up stronger. The biggest difference for me from the book to the movie was that in the book his dad taught him everything he knew and helped him in the NFL, and in the movie his dad did not help him at all and even told Vince that he didn't think is was a good idea to go to the teams tryouts. The only person who really taught him something in the movie was his teammate who played the center position.
It isn’t their fault that they didn’t get an education because their parents spent all the money they had on alcohol and drugs. It isn’t their fault that they cannot get a job because they had no education. It isn’t their fault they were neglected.Every human should get a chance to prove they can be successful. We are lucky enough to be provided with this since birth. They aren’t.
When I was little, I didn't understand what Dad did for a living. His job was simply the thing that kept him away. He worked a lot of overtime, and even when he came home on time, he had little to say about his day. Little good, anyway. "You could teach a monkey to do what I do," he said some evenings to no one in particular, staring straight ahead as he nursed his Stroh's.
