The result of his analysis was, the subtitle of Liz Murray’s BreakingNight: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival, and My Journey from Homeless to Harvard, plainly forecasts a personal narrative of success and redemption. Reading it, I was inspired to see her beating the odds against her ever leading a satisfactory life. Unlike, say, Augustine, she could never have expected to set an example that many readers would be able to emulate. Very few readers, one hopes, would ever find themselves in her extreme circumstances. So, having lived the experiences she did, why did she write the memoir? What motivated her to tell her story? I have concluded that she must not have known how she did it and wrote the memoir in order to find the answers for herself. In this essay I will explore her three major themes of forgiveness, survival, and journey, in order to illuminate her inner journey from nowhere to somewhere.

By mentioning that the pearl is a gift of God, the priest clarifies that Kino should give thanks. If Kino does not do it, he will behave improperly.
