In this book there are many symbols. One of these symbols was the wind. The wind often represents freedom, and it was used in this way throughout the book. For example, when Susan first met David, the wind blew his papers out of his hand, which led to the entire rest of the book. Another more direct use of this symbol was on the college ring- on it was inscribed 'Die Luft der Freiheit weht', which means 'The wind of freedom blows'.
