    "I go to seek a great perhaps"

    This is a quote from François Rabelais and is mentioned in the novel 'Looking for Alaska'. I want to get your perspective from it. What does it mean for you guys? and does it show some form of maturity? if so, how? It is said from the main character - Miles/Pudge.

    I asked my dad how it shows maturity and this is what he said "It shows maturity because he recognises the potential for a greater opportunity"

    I'm asking so I can get some different point of views and also I need to use it for my English exam I have tomorrow

    He is hopeful for a brighter future, and willing to seek it. He has the determination to continue on. That is what I got out of it, not really good at this kind of stuff sorry

    Thats pretty good. It's been a pain in the ass this year because my English teacher has been completely useless with this sort of stuff and hasn't given us notes etc...
    Oh hai der.

    What's even worse is that shes the Head Of Department (H.O.D). That means she's pretty much the boss of the other English teachers... and she's got to be the worst out of the rest

    Listen to this. In New Zealand our marking scheme for secondary school different from schools in other schools. It is Not Achieved (fail) high/low Achieved (lowest mark you can get but still a pass), high/low Merit (second highest mark) and high/low Excellence (highest mark you can get). My mate's English teacher gave him a low Excellence for an assignment then it went to MY teacher for moderation (double check that its legit, teacher marked it correctly etc...) and she gave him a low Achieved. The difference in marks between each teacher is just crazy stupid. Pissed me off even though it wasn't my work.
    Oh hai der.
