Frank's reaction to his new environment is complicated because he tries to account for Morris'  persistence. He does not see that Morris has almost no choice of lifestyle and destiny, and that  dishonesty would be too great a price for Morris to pay for any escape from poverty. Breitbart's  brother who ran off with Breitbart's money and wife is another example of a man on-the-make, a man  similar to Julius Karp and Charlie Sobeloff. The sardonic tone of "then he took off with what was left  of the bank account, persuading Breitbart's wife to come along and keep it company" suggests how  easy and tempting it is to be dishonest. To some men, cheating comes almost naturally, thereby  emphasizing the lucklessness of men like Breitbart and Morris Bober. Nevertheless, the persistence  of men like Morris and Breitbart helps hold the world together.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
