McCandless was an extremely compassionate man, and would always loyally abide by his ideals and principles. What he sought was life in its simplest form; he no longer wanted anything to do with modern society and all of the troubles that it brought. Then lies the extremities to which he took making this all become reality. How many people could honestly claim to have sufficiently reached out to their dreams, could honestly claim that they had at least tried let alone pushed hard enough to succeed? McCandless was not the 'sit down and take it in stride' kind of person.
I honestly don't think anyone will be able to understand or define the meaning of love. However I love my family and friends, but I am starting to give up on loving anyone else. I hate how I'm so happy and then it`s ruined.. I hate how you make me feel so bad, however in my life I've experienced more love from you than enough pain to overcome what I already know, which is to love to the full extent. Goodbye is never goodbye until life is over.
This makes it all pointless if someone went out and live it would be meaningless. Where is the meaning in life without something after life? Especially for those who do not leave an imprint in lives there life is completely meaningless, because even if they live their whole life living it with excitement when they will not be remembered or have mattered. If something does not matter that makes it meaningless therefore if someone does nothing that makes an impact they are meaningless. This makes their life meaningless because everything in their life serves no purpose.
I used to be so cold hearted and emotionless and not a care in the world. After my best friend passed away, it opened a door of emotion I never thought I had. Now it’s so easy for me to sympathize with people who have lost loved ones and to console them through their grief. Katherine Peralta is the reason why I shed tears every night when I fall asleep.
No longer distracted by anything from the world, he lied within his on presence and found it pleasing. As readers, we would think he would have his “happy ending” of finding himself or finding someone or something to fill his void without selfish motives. His ending showed that there was nothing that was or would fill the void caused mainly the mistreatment of others and him allowing them to do so. He accepted the fact that being himself wasn’t enough for him or others, so he had no purpose in this world. Finding his happiness in others was never going to happen no matter how good and true his intentions were.
He found the love and friendship that others yearn for, so those were not the driving force that caused him so much stress in his life. One would have to say there were no signs of Gump being stagnant. Even though some would consider Gump as developmentally slow
Hence, he empowered for his premature demise because he never acknowledged the possibility of any situation being too laborious for him. Regrettably, Chris’ father confirmed that his son was a self-absorbed person because he never showed concern for the thoughts of others: “If you attempted to talk him out of something, he wouldn’t argue. He’d just nod politely and then do exactly what he wanted” (8). By neglecting the time to reflect on the opinions of others, Chris illustrated how irrelevant he perceived the mindsets of others to be. Chris conveyed that he more so preferred to risk his life in doing something that he loved as opposed to listening to the sheltered and helpful advice from others.
Even before Meursault’s impending execution, he was clearly content with what had become of his life because he was living for himself. Ultimately, Camus conveys the idea that society is unreasonable because a fear of seclusion is a motivating factor in blindly conforming to common ideals rather than one’s true passions in life. Life is seemingly futile if no true happiness exists within, yet many people live to unnecessary standards regardless. Camus does not comply with societal standards, and would not be able to understand the idea of blind belief, such as that in
He is in his own world and offers us a glimpse into it, but we find that there is nothing really special about it. His world is simple, disconnected, and based on circumstances. Other people, however, view Meursault as everything from strange, somewhat quiet, and an "alright" guy, to callous, heartless, and evil. When we are in Meursault's world, we feel that much of what he says makes sense and that he is somewhat likeable, but when Meursault offers us a glimpse at the world outside, we see that those around him who say that he is strange and even callous might be on to something. Meursault challenges many of the rules of conventional society.
