Happiness is something we all want in our lives and it is something all people need.
- People have an inherent fear of what they don?t know or what is different. This is the underlying concept behind the prejudices encountered by the protagonists in all of the stories I have read.

One of these techniques is the use of characters as symbols, to procreate the message of the story within the simple narrative of the daily travails of the characters.
- Interdependence weaves together a society of individuals. Relationships with other people are important parts of human life, and interdependence is the group-wide dependence every person has for other people, and which groups of people have for that person.

Anyway you look at it, both my novel and most novels from the Hounds of Baskerville to Murder on the Orient Express.
