  • Theme: Don't spend so much time working that you're missing out on spending time with your loved ones. "Then, glancing at the desk across the living room, she said, 'You work too much, though, Tom--and too hard.'"
  • Tone: Urgent, fearful "And a violent, instantaneous explosion of absolute terror roared through him. For a motionless instant he saw himself externally--bent practically double, balanced on this narrow ledge, nearly half his body projecting out above the street far below--and he began to tremble violently, panic flaring through his mind and muscles, and he felt the blood rush from the surface of his skin.
  • Mood: Hopeful, afraid "His right hand smacked gropingly beside it as he fell to his knees; and, under the full weight and direct downward pull of his sagging body, the open window dropped shudderingly in its frame till it closed and his wrists struck the sill and were jarred off."
