Given another chance

  His tries as much as people do most, having that last lecture given out to the people of Carnegie Mellon University. "The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there the people who don't want it badly enough. They're there to stop the other people." The quote explains that brick walls are there because people who doesn't try, they can't get what they wanted the most. The theme and the quote relates to doing get to that goal same as Randy Pausch delivering his last lecture. "Experience is what you want when you didn't get what you wanted. And experience is often the most valuable thing you have to offer." The quote explains that even though you've tried, it still matters that you had done it meaning that you did it. The qoute relates to the theme because it gives you confidence that you have done it. You did the thing that you wanted the most instead of doing nothing about it.6.The theme relates to the book the Boy Sherlock Holmes The Dragons Turn. When Sherlock wanted to find who killed the famous magician, and he manages to do so by gathering evidence and experienced to solve a crime.
