He has lived in one for twelve years. At the age of twelve he is chosen to be
received, the results of the memories, and the wisdom he gained as a result of
change, and his very breath was cold.?(p.80) This was the memory of a sled
realized memories aren?t all happy.
Results play a major role in the conclusion and what makes The Giver
bear to see what he had done to Jonas. ?Forgive me,? he said.?(p.120) After
this took place Jonas started to change and to realize a lot of things. Thus,
some results are positive, but also some are negative.
Wisdom is the final topic discussed in the essay. Jonas learns a lot and
becomes wiser throughout the book. It is easy to see wisdom through his
actions that follow: ?Methodically Jonas hacked the fish in to pieces with a
sharp rock and fed the raw shreds to himself and Gabriel.?(p.173) This event
faced, Jonas had no choice but to rely on his wisdom.
In a utopian society one?s life wouldn?t really be his own. No one
really has a life or freedom in a utopian society. Through memories, Jonas
learned a lot. The results of the memories gave him wisdom. The wisdom
Jonas gained helped him and Gabriel survive. Of all the three topics
discussed, wisdom plays the biggest role of all.
