But perhaps it is because the red man is savage and does not understand. There is no quiet place in the white man’s cities. No place to hear the leaves of spring or the rustle of insect’s wings. But perhaps because I am savage and do not understand, the clatter only seems to insult the ears. The Indian prefers the soft of the wind darting over the face of the pond, the smell of the wind itself cleaned by a mid-day rain, or scented with pinion pine.” First Perce states that the white man only conquers the land then leaving everything else behind.

He comes to understand that he has once been delayed 3 months and one more mere night is nothing. Marlow appears stubborn, even though he understands that they must be cautious when travelling up the river and he can see dangerous waters ahead he continues to be bothered by the delay. This interuption of travelling and the hinting of dangerous waters ahead could be considered to be hinting at different things. For example, Marlow suspects the ripples in the water ahead but is forced to make anchor for the night, and is later attacked when the Fog surrounds the French Steamer. This could be considered a form of foreshadowing.
In Animal Farm, the author, George Orwell, shows how “Absolute power corrupts absolutely!” For instance, the first sign of corruption is shown by Farmer Jones ill treatment of the animals. He is a drunken man whose life is poorly living.

Reactive people however always blame everything surrounding them for excuses of why they are not responsible or cannot do something. For example, imagine if it was the Saturday you have been waiting weeks for because you were going to your favorite amusement park but it starts raining before you are supposed to go.

But a reactive person would put the blame on the weather and complain it is out of their control and was a waste of time. The second of the 7 habits, is “Begin with the end in mind”,
The suspended time, or time we observe characters "waiting", within each story provides the reader with a clear indication of the dominant theme of paralysis. In "Two Gallants" we meet two exploitive men, Corley and Lenehan, whom are planning to use a woman to steal for them. In the beginning of the story we see a map of Lenehan's route which is hard to keep up with because he is constantly walking in circles, literally and throughout life. The symbolism of Lenehan traveling around Dublin in loops is towards his life, where he is moving forward but never truly arriving anywhere. Lenehan's personal paralysis is that he lives a pitiful life but doesn't wish to.

The light in the café is man-made or artificial and can be turned off; giving us the sense that it can only be a temporary and incomplete relief from the emptiness of the dark. The light that shone on the brass number that was on the collar of the passing soldier is perhaps an indication of how meaningful this soldiers’ life was, which can be further emphasized in that he had a companion next to him. The old man likes to go to the café late at night “because he was deaf and now at night it was quiet and he felt the difference”. Daytime, with its busy streets, probably reminded him of his disconnection from the world, while the darkness of the night made him feel as if he was not missing out on much. In essence, being deaf can bring him darkness and a separation from the rest of the world which can be the symbolic reason why he chooses to sit in the shadow of the well-lighted café.
