The love between them two help impact his journey on a positive way showing him how to love and the feelings behind loving someone. In the book Siddhartha, Siddhartha says to Kamala “And if it does not displease you, Kamala, I would like to ask you to be my friend and teacher, for I do not know anything of the art of which you are mistress.”(53) Siddhartha knew Kamala was very smart in her art of work and knew everything to it so he came to her to help him find love in order to become happy with himself.
I feel at home with the existentialists as they ask: “Why?". My question is, why must people refuse to come to their own conclusions? Why is it taboo to not embrace a "God" but embrace your mind instead? Why can we all not realize that we are alone, that we must find meaning in our lives because we are alive, not because someone or something wants us to live a certain way? As Camus puts it: “I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world."
I said it was fine with me: he seemed pleased.” (Camus, 29) It really made no difference to Meursault if he was stated as a friend of Raymond’s or not. The way that Meursault does not contribute to the conversation and that it is just “fine with [him]” to be friends creates an image of indifference. This image continues to grow as Raymond continues to talk to Meursault. Raymond goes on to tell of his problems with women, and Meursault still remains silent. After his Raymond’s confessions are over he once again thanks Meursault for being a pal: “I didn’t mind being his pal, and he seemed set on it.” (Camus, 33) Once again, Meursault’s attitude makes it seem that he doesn’t really care if he is Raymond’s pal.
As the book goes on Valjean realizes that stealing is not the way to get something, and he will never gain respect or love from anyone from doing so. Once he starts being honest good things start to happen. He finds a Cosette who is like a daughter to him and then realizes he should never commit another criminal act for the sake of his daughter. “Valjean comes to value his own existence more because the girl is dependent upon him and loves him” (Reeves 5). He was able to live a happy peaceful life once he was able to embrace his past and move forward and learn that what he did was wrong.
Since he mentioned that the bond can’t be broken, it indicates that he knows that not all is lost even if two companions separated because the connection will always be there. In the end, both Lewis and Wiz decide to remember the good memories spent together, rather than the thought of missing them as they both realize how life is all about moving on, not living in the past because friendship is never
Whereas ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake questions the existence of God 'What immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?' pertaining directly to the tyger being fearful yet beautiful. As it’s a mature ‘song of experience’ signifying what he learnt from this suspicious and fearful world. Both poems deal with the themes of creation, power and strength to describe violent actions. ‘Poem at Thirty-Nine’ is another relationship of a parent and child explored by Alice Walker who draws attention towards her father’s loss and his wisdom in a vibrant form ‘a person dancing in a yoga meditation’ The smile assist Walker in describing the spirit of her father although dancing and meditation seem to be complet... ... middle of paper ... ...an beings that we grow and evolve, how we deepen and expand our experience of love and meaning.
She does not need anyone to tell her to think realistically and not be deceived by the shepherd’s promises. She thinks that the shepherd’s love is a way to trick people into a temporary pleasure world. Although the shepherd has confessed bravely about his feeling, she does not move with the shepherd’s daring action. However, at the end of the poem, she states that she can only be moved if the youth could last forever and joys will never expire. She can only change her mind if the shepherd’s promises are really true as if there is nothing to worry about if she accepts his love.
Bobby may not be his real name because it didn’t mention him denying his name. Bobby loves Gwen and how it changed his life meeting her.

The act of having the care and love for one’s true self is the first step in loving oneself before admitting in having feelings for someone else. Maria does not question her actions and does not need approval from anyone to do what she has in mind. “I will drop in his way some obscure epistles of love, wherein bythe color of his beard, the shape of his leg, the manner of his gait, the expressure of his eye, forehead, and complexion, he shall find himself most feeling personated.” (2.3.63) “I can write very like my lady your niece. On a forgotten matter, we can hardly make distinction of our hands” (Dolan 114) Maria does not question this to another person neither to herself which shows a form of self-love because she is dependent of herself and not of someone else. Someone who loves themselves feels confident with the decision that ones makes and does not do their actions to be able to please another being but for herself.
With a family such as his, no burdens seem to exist on his back. He has an entertaining mother, a father as a teacher, affection demanding brothers, and a gentle Elizabeth. He simply has no concerns. When Catherine (on her deathbed) joined the hands of Elizabeth and Victor saying, “…my firmest hopes of future happiness were placed on the prospect of you union” (37), it shows that Victor’s love life is also worry-free. Allowing him to further pursue his primary love, his studies.
