Carine/Quotes (Eddie Vedder?)
Dialogue (Opening Scene)
"I was sure I'd heard Chris calling me. . . . I wasn't dreaming. I didn't imagine it. I heard his voice! He was begging, 'Mom! Help me!' but I couldn't help him because I didn't know where he was" (126).
"Missing" Chapters
Narration: (in)accuracies (Carine)
“When he was four years old, he once wandered six blocks away from home at 3:00 in the morning. He was found in a neighbor’s kitchen, up on a chair, digging through their candy drawer.” (1:05:10)

“At the age of two, he got up in the middle of the night, found his way outside without waking his parents, and entered a house down the street to plunder a neighbor’s candy drawer” (106).
Narration: Synthesis (Carine)
“Chris measured himself and those around him by a fiercely (impossibly) rigorous moral code” (122). He risked what could have been a relentlessly lonely path, but found company in the characters of the books he loved from writers like Tolstoy, Jack London and Thoreau. He could summon their words to suit any occasion, and he often would. I forgot to ask what quote he'd have picked for his graduation dinner, but I had a good idea of who the primary target would be. It was inevitable that Chris would break away. And when he did, he would do it with “characteristic immoderation” (64).
“I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you previously never thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. . . . The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure.”

“You should make a radical change in your lifestyle! I mean, the core of man's spirit comes from new experiences. And there you are, stubborn old man, sitting on your butt!” (2:00:42)

“You are wrong if you think joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience. We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living.”

“But you're wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from human relationships. God's placed it all around us. It's in everything. It's in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at those things.”

"Some people who have been brought back from the far edge of starvation, though, report that near the end the hunger vanishes, the terrible pain dissolves, and the suffering is replaced by a sublime euphoria, a sense of calm accompanied by transcendental mental clarity" (198).
