Well... honestly I dont think that there is a right or wrong answer. I think this because going from Miles perspective of living forever I would agree with him. I would agree with him because if I went through that I would feel the same way. But, going from Jesse's perspective I would want to enjoy it since it couldnt be changed. I would want to enjoy it because if you dont enjoy it what really is left of life. So, since they are different people and have gone through different things in their life the are both right. That is why I think that Miles and Jesse are both right.
I think that if I were in the situation I would try to be as optomistic as possible like Jesse so that I can try and have a positive attitude about it as long as I can. But eventually I'd start having to face the facts like what Miles is doing and be realistic because I 'd know that I wouldn't really have a life. I might find someone I love, settle down, but in the end she would leave me like Miles because as she grew older I was stuck. My answer would be to stay optomistic as long as i could until I would eventually break down and realize that I was trapped and that I'd be walking the Earth until the end of eternity.
I think jesse is right because he is having a good attitude. instead of being upset, he thinks of the reasons why it is good. I think jesse is wrong becasue if hes not serious, he could give a way some secrets that people arent supposed to know. That's why he has to be caruful of what he does. Miles is right because he is being serious and working hard. You can never be to careful. Miles is wrong because he shouldnt look down. There are some good things that happen when you live forever, so he should at least appreciate those things.
I think that Jesse has a better perspective than Miles because he is looking at it optimisticly and he trying to make living forever seem like a good thing when realy it sort of isn't. But, miles is still almost trying to bring down Jesse's point of view, probably because he is still upset about how his family left him. So, I think that Jesse's not right but I think his point of view is better than Miles because realy Miles is trying to make everything seem bad and depressing
I think that Miles realistic aproach is semi-right, because he is kind of negetive. An exception to that, though, is he has been through alot, he knows more than Jesse how painful it is to go through such a big loss, and he's just trying to tell Jesse not everything is okay to joke about. Some things just should never be joked about. I can resect why he said that. However, on the other hand I kind of like how Miles is making the best of a bad situation and looking at the glass half-full. Even though sometimes it's not okay to joke about it, I think he's just trying not to make everything seem as awful as it is. I also kind of agree with this because, since they live forever, Miles is going to be depressed forever and Miles will be able to have more fun. So I kind of and kind of don't agree with, depending on how I look at it, from which point of view,.
Miles has a more realistic perspective because he had a family and kids, and then his wife ran away because she thought he was evil and she took the kids with her. And there probably all dead now. And Miles has to live through it until the world ends. Jesse has a more opptomistic because he hasn't lost anybody, and, since his family drank the whater to, he won't have to suffer through there loss. I think Jesse has a better perspective of things because there's nothing within there power that they can do about it, so they might as well live there life happily.
I think that Jesse's perspective is right. Miles perspective isn't right because he's just complaining since he has had more expeirences with a wife and kids. Jesse's perspective is right because there is nothing to worry about. Instead about being sad, angry, and jealous your whole life, just enjoy it. Living forever is a gift, and miles should be proud of it. That is why i think Jesse's perspective is right.
I think that Miles and Jesse both have right prospectives. Jesse has a good prospective beacsue even though it isnt a good situation he is making the best out of it. Even though he knows how much pain Miles went through, he didnt get as upset beacuse he didnt go through it himself. Miles has a more realistic approach because he lost his family in result of living forever. I think he is partilly right beacuse even though it sounds like it may be fun to live forever, you may not want to after a while beacuse you lose all of youre family. I think that since Miles knows how hard it is to lose your family and Jesse doesnt. Even though he is very negative on the sitiaution he knows how to take it and be strong. I think that both of them are right.
I agree with jesse's opinion because if he has to live forever I would chose to live it up like jesse. There is no reason to feel sorry for yourself you have to make the best out of it. I also take miles's side because he has lost family and this is a serius thing. I think miles is being a little bit pestamistic because jesse is trying to have fun and miles is being mean about that. Jesse probably isnt being serius enough. I think both of there approuches are right but I am a little bit more on jesse's side.
I really like that Jesse is obtimistic and wants to have fun with living forever because if you want to make things to be better you need to think diffrent obout the situation. I do think that miles is write with his answer but he needs to be more obtimistic and happy but i think he should just leave the past in the past and keep moving forward
I think Jesse and Miles perspectives are both right but for different reasons. Jesse makes more of a " why not have fun with it " approach. Miles takes it WAY serious because he knows what will eventually happen in Jesse's life and in Winnie's, if she drinks the water. Miles has been married and had kids but since his apearence never changes, his wife left him and took his kids too. Jesse might some day go through that prosess and I bet he will not have such a great outcome. Both ways are not wrong ways to look at the situation, just Miles's is more of a realisttic way and Jesse's is more of a optimistic approach.
I not think that either of them are right or wrong I woud say that Jesse is looking on the more optimistic spin on it. He is saying thing like think about all where going to go throug and there are so many thing that we can do. Then, Milse is more saying thing like it is not as fun as you think and there is alot more than just having fun. Miles was like no one likes you or wants to be around you. He also has been through a time when he got married and had childern, but then they left him. They tought he was a witch or than given his soul to the devile. So that why I think he took the more realistic side of it. That why I think that either of them where right or wrong but they had been thourgh different things,Hadley
I can realy take sides of eathier one of them because they have both been throught diffrent things. Yes I do see Jessy's point in how if it is something that you cant nessesarly change than ya you might just want to just look at it as a good way ( the cup is half ful). I can also see Miles' point on how he has been throught many bad things do to the fact that he could live forever so he would take it the bad way. So I cant take sides just because it depends in the age that your in to see if it is good or if it is bad.
A couple days ago we've read the book the Tuck Everlasting. While reading we found out that Winnie met the Tuck family. We found out a mysterious thing about the Tuck family. We found out that they can't die. They can't die because they drank a certain type of water that makes them live forever. Winnie thought that was cool so she wanted to drink some of the water. But the tuck's have expierienced it and they wish they havn't done it. Miles has an expierience of what happened because his wife ran away because he havn't gotten any older since they got married. Jessie thinks it's fine and he just has to deal with it. But I agree with Miles because he's warning Winnie of how bad the consequences are and someday she'll regret it.
I think both prospectives are right and also wrong for the way you look at them. Jesse's point of view is an optimistic way of looking at it. He sees since they already drank from the spring he couldn't change that but he is trying to make the best out of it. The thing he doesn't see is the realness of his situation that he never going to get married or get older. Miles point of view is the realistic approuch. He already had his wife and kids ran away from him so he has had heart breaks and knows nothing is going to get better. He could see the optimistic side and know that nothing is going to get better so he should just have an enjoyable time.
Why i think Jesse took a good approach.I think this because
he is going to live forever why not have fun with it but in real life almost no one would do this.because they would greif over all there friends and family. Also Jesse is more optimistic about this because he hasent lost any that he cared for.Why i think Miles has a bad approach but more realistic. Miles his sad about it too becuase his family died so he is depressed. he could lighten up though about enternity. i would not chose miles approach,
Miles is stricter and doesn't like to fool around about the strory about the spring because he lost his family because they didn't believe him,they thought he sold his soul to the devil, called him witchcraft. He thinks its a serious story also because he doesn't want the same thing to Winnie: losing her family,living forever and being different than others. Now, Jesse is younger and he really wants to make the best of it, while it lasts
I think that Jesse has a better approach, well they both have different ways of going. So either or would work if at least what their doing is what they want to do and they like it the most.
