There are many people in this world that are so fun of greed and want that they don’t pay attention to the outcome that they are making. If money and luck is so important to some people, why do they make such a big deal about who gives it to them. Money is going to be a huge problem in our society because it is always the cause of bigger problems. In “The Rocking Horse” by D.H. Lawrence, and “A Shocking Accident” by Graham Greene, they were two very shocking endings, but “The Rocking Horse Winner” had the most surprising ending in my mind. First of all, the greed of the mother is so overpowering that she doesn’t even show affection or love toward her kids so they fight for her love and hope that one day they would receive it. “She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrusted upon her, and she could not love them. They looked at her coldly, as if they were finding fault with her.” (1247) The children look to their mother to hope for love and all that they seem to get in return is hate. She feels as if her children are some kind of burden that was thrusted upon her as punishment for something. She says that her husband has “bad luck”, but she may just be blaming it upon him so that she isn’t forced to be labelled as it. Second of all, the uncle is so amazed by the fact that the boy is talented enough to become lucky when it comes to the amazing horse races. “The uncle was delighted to find that his small nephew was posted with all the racing news.” (1250)
