    McCandless often talked about taking trips to Alaska to live off the land and keep journals about his spiritual progress as he lived with nature. McCandless was eventually able to hitchhike to Fairbanks, Alaska in 1992. He found an abandoned bus that he used for shelter and his life in the wild began. He lived at the bus for 113 days before finally passing away of starvation. He wrote his final words on the back of a poem saying "I HAVE HAD A HAPPY LIFE AND THANK THE LORD. GOODBYE AND MAY GOD BLESS ALL!"
    I personally find McCandless to fit the criteria of a transcendentalist perfectly. The quote "Simplify, simplify, simplify" by Thoreau reminds me of a quote by McCandless about how having a job is a twentieth century invention and he didn't want one. This places him in the category of nonconformist. Almost everyone believes they need a job to survive, but McCandless didn't. He also had a deep love for nature. He dreamed of just living as one with nature and having an epic spiritual experience. He did as Thoreau did, but took it one step further by not even having a cabin to live in. I believe Thoreau would be proud to see his advice being followed. Thoreau said "Only that day dawns to which we are awake," and McCandless did what he could to be awake. McCandless was a pure example of a transcendentalist and lived the life he believed in.

    {366px-Bono_at_the_2009_Tribeca_Film_Festival.jpg} Bono source: wikipedia.com
    Bono was born May 10, 1960 in Dublin, Ireland. In September of 1974, his mother passed away of a cerebral aneurysm. This event would later inspire many songs in Bono's music career. In 1976, Bono joined a band with other friends and they were known as Feedback. After Dik Evans left the group, the band became U2. The band would go on to become world famous and win 22 Grammy Awards, seven BRIT Awards, 14 Meteor Awards, one AMA, four VMAs, ten Q Awards, two Juno Awards, three NME Awards, and a Golden Globe Awards
    Bono's work as a humanitarian began in 1984 with his participation in Band Aid to raise relief money for a famine in Ethiopia. Later on. Bono would visit Ethiopia and become even more inspired to do work helping other causes. In 1986, Bono and U2 performed in Self Aid to protest unemployment in Ireland. Bono himself has met many influential leaders in the world to discuss his views on the AIDS pandemic and other third-world relief methods. In 2002, he coufounded DATA, or Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa, which had a main priority of getting equality for Africa. The Product Red and ONE Campaign were also both formed based on Bono's ideas and hopes for the world.
    I believe Bono is an excellent example of a transcendentalist. He exhibits the traits of nonviolent resistance and optimism and confidence in human perfectability. He uses his words in the form of music to express his beliefs about social and political issues. This is an excellent form of nonviolent resistance. As Emerson said, you must "speak what you think today in words as hard as cannonballs." Bono uses his music to do so. When it comes to confidence in human perfectability, he himself is an example. He works so hard for so many causes just to bring relief to those less fortunate. Bono is a very rich man, but he still hasn't lost his morals and continues to work for the greater good. Emerson's quote about a man being a god in ruins could be proven by the existence of Bono. He has had rough times in his life, but he is showing god-like qualities by being so above and beyond the average human being with his charities. Bono seems to be a great person and is an example that hop isn't lost. He is a transcendentalist and fights for a better world.

    Even though this song may not appear to be transcendentalist at first, I believe the deeper meaning in the words are very transcendentalist. The lyric "I'm a ghost. You're an angel. We're one and the same" makes me think of the belief in human perfectability. The writer knows he isn't perfect, but its possible to be like an angel. Another transcendentalist lyric is "Angel or demon, I gave up my soul, I'm guilty of treason, I've abandoned control" could be a reference to nonviolent resistance and nonconformity. When it comes to nonconformity, I believe the writer felt that "Imitation is suicide," as Emerson said. As for nonviolent resistance, the writer went along with society and "gave up his soul." Now, he's guilty of treason against society by denying the things he doesn't believe in.

This part makes it very transcendentalist. There are also other transcendentalist traits, such as optimism and confidence in human perfectability. When the writer says "We can't both become the same pawn that's made to fall," I believe that the idea of doing what you want and resisting society is being suggested. This is similar to the quote "" by . In relativity to confidence in human perfectability, the lyric "Put into jars, we'll save this earth" means that if humans concentrate on making the world a better place, the chances of it happening are very great. This reminds me of the quote "" by .
