“Never forget that the most powerful force one earth is love” (Nelson Rockefeller). Sobel from The First Seven Years and Noah from The Notebook both fought for love in both the stories they were in. Noah and Sobel are hardworking, strong-willed, and both loving. They both had to endure hard work and pain to get the woman that they loved. They both faced many struggles and in the end they both got what they wanted.
Both Noah and Sobel were hard working. Noah from The Notebook says in the story “So it’s not gonna be easy.
