In the beginning of the story the author introduces the setting as being a beautiful home that is made cold by the lack of love of the parents, specifically the mother. “She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them” (Lawrence, 2007, p. 493). It is the mother’s lack of security within her own life that portrays the same feelings to her children.

There are many themes in the novel, two of the main themes are the greed for power and money.

Ex-President Jimmy Carter knows both the power and the limitations of money. He is also aware that the acquisition of money or material wealth is not a worthwhile goal. This was made clear in his speech to the American people when he stated: "Our great cities and our mighty buildings will avail us not if we lack spiritual strength to subdue mere objects to the higher purposes of humanity" (Harnsberger 14). In F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby, the author clearly illustrates that Jay Gatsby does not understand the limitations of the power of money.

The richest men alive could easily end world hunger, and most likely cure cancer as well if they put all of their money to a good cause, but this however isn't likely to happen because those people just cant part with their money, which is a shame. Bill Gates donates a lot of money to charity each year, but what people don't seem to consider when he does that is that the ten million dollars he donates doesn't even dent his bank account. Bill Gates could afford to donate billions of dollars for charities, and still have billions left, but his lust for money and power keeps him from doing so (even though one billion dollars alone is enough to keep a person very rich and happy for the rest of their life). If people would only think twice before spending their money on useless things, and put it to a good cause instead, or if people could become morally correct members of society and work hard for their money, then our world would be a much better place.VIEW DOCUMENT

Shaw recognized that many people look toward money, the ultimate representation of materialism, in search of the power that enables them to live. But, money can play many parts in the drama of life. It can represent or give the illusion of wealth, prestige, nobility, and power. Those that seek to harness its powers must also strive to conquerVIEW DOCUMENT
