... and use false or unmeaningful relationships to comfort their need of being loved.
Emily and Suzie both develop a distinct reputation in their small towns. One of the effects of a small town is that everyone knows who you are, what you do, and whom you are with. Therefore it is not an uncommon for the town’s people to recognize someone’s loneliness and lifestyle.

... she believes it to be.
The scarlet symbol of ignominy may have defiled Hester's public image,
yet it has been a benefit rather than a bane to her soul, for by admitting her
crime to the crowd, her soul is freed from two hells: first, the fiery pit
where she would otherwise go after death, and second, the own personal hell

Though it was ordered for Hester to wear the letter, it was still her own choice
to make it in a vivid scarlet, "so fantastically embroidered and illuminated
upon her bosom." Hester chose red as the color of her brand ...

For what is the product of 222 and 3 but the infamous 666 of Revelations 13:18?
Imagine now our delight when we discovered a similar 666 pattern in The Outsider. If you multiply the number of letters in Meursault's name times the number of letters in `Albert' times the number of letters in `Arab' you get 216. ...

Whenever someone is wearing a mask or has a painted face, evil is at large. The very purpose of a mask is for hiding. The boys use the masks to hide their lust for blood, killing, and death from their consciences. When going to hunt for the first time, "Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness" because he knew that his manner of hunting was evil and would only lead to lascivious killing. While describing that hunt to the boys, Jack was "twitching" and "shuddering" as h ...
