“‘O.K. Someday--we’re gonna get the jack together and we’re gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an’ a cow and some pigs and--’ ‘An’ live of the fatta the land…An’ have rabbits’” (Steinbeck 14). 

Ch. 2 pg. 34 or 36

Ch. 3 
“Candy said, ‘I ain’t much good with only one hand. I lost my right hand here on this ranch…S’pose I went in with you guys. That’s three hundred and fifty bucks I’d put in. I ain’t much good, but I could cook and tend the chickens and hoe the garden some’” (Steinbeck 59). 

Ch. 4
Crooks says, “‘...If you…guys would want a hand to work for nothing--just his keep, why I’d come and lend a hand. I ain’t so crippled I can’t work…’” (Steinbeck 76). 

“‘I didn’t mean it. Just foolin. I wouldn’t want to go no place like that [farm]’” (Stenbeck 83).

Ch. 5
“‘Another time I met a guy and he was in pictures…He says he was gonna put me in the movies. Says I was a natural…Coulda been in the movies, and had nice clothes…and coulda sat in those big hotels and had pictures took of me’” (Steinbeck 88-89).

Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” (Jefferson par. 2).

-everyone is equal (all humanity) according to God
-rights come from God = human rights,  unchangeable by people 
-rights = to be able to do certain things, have freedom, privilege 


“That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States…the connection between them and the State of Great Britain is and out to be totally dissolved” (Jefferson par. 32).

- creates pressure for the daughter herself; impact the mother’s and daughter’s relationship negatively (stress) 


2nd evidence done on your own (maybe about the Daughter’s dream? This one is done on your own_

“And after seeing, once again, my mother’s disappointed face, something inside me began to die…And then I saw what seemed to be the prodigy inside of me…The girl staring back at me was angry, powerful. She and I were the same” (Tan 35).

-daughter is broken b/c she will never live up to mom’s dreams
-BUT she realizes she is powerful on her own
-she knows she can live her own dream, and her mom can support her
