“Tristan’s guilt was specific and limited to the dead body of his brother, the heart sunk in a canister of paraffin” (Harrison, 221). Due to the guilt he was faced with, Tristan was determined to escape and go to his grandfather’s place that was located in Cornwall. It took him many days before he had arrived at his grandfather’s home, but he completed his mission. From here he then went to Dedham where he met Susannah and declared he would marry her.
The Bennets were engaged to dine with the Lucases and again during the chief of the day was Miss Lucas so kind as to listen to Mr. Collins. Elizabeth took an opportunity of thanking her. ' It keeps him in good humour,' said she, 'and I am more obliged to you than I can express.' Charlotte assured her friend of her satisfaction in being useful, and that it amply repaid her for the little sacrifice of her time. This was very amiable, but Charlotte's kindness extended farther than Elizabeth had any conception of; its object was nothing else than to secure her from any return of Mr. Collins's addresses, by engaging them towards herself.
I always thought that it was kind of funny that we remembered him with dog tags that he probably didn 't know he had and a flag that was once laid on his coffin and that was handed to my crying grandma from the military men who folded the flag. When I think about his life, I think how lucky he was. He didn 't have to go to Korea, instead, he got married, had kids, opened a store and taught guys just joining the military about the military. He did so much is his lifetime and yet the last ten years of his life that was all forgotten, all the stories, the moments, the memories all gone. I hope that later in my life I can still look at his tags and remember the stories, moments and the memories
“When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease – of joy that kills” (Chopin 3). When in reality she had just lost the joy she had from her husband’s death which shattered her heart. “Someone was opening the front door with a latchkey. It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel-stained, composedly carrying his grip-sack and umbrella. He had been far from the scene of the accident, and did not even know there had been one.

The author’s incorporation of Phineas dying this way aids in showing Gene’s betrayal of Phineas. Prior to Phineas’s death, he and Gene had been fighting much more than they normally did, and Phineas ended up telling Gene he was upset that he couldn’t participate in the war due to his leg. Gene feels bad because he is uncertain about whether or not Phineas’s first fall was his fault, and ultimately, it was the first fall that caused Phineas to die.

Many people identify closure as an end, a conclusion, or a resolution, when in fact it should be something that is understood, accepted, and lived with. In the chapter, “The Dew Breaker,” Anne, the wife of the dew breaker, still regrets the traumatic death of her brother at the hands of her own husband. She goes on to say, “There was no way to escape this dread anymore...this fright that the most important relationships of her life were always on the verge of being severed or lost, that the people closest to her were always disappearing... These spirits, they’d left her for good... leaving behind no corpse to bury, no trace of himself at all” (Danticat 242). This suggests that Anne may never be able to forgive her husband and obtain closure from her brother’s death.
I feel that Mrs. Jones’s did not fully change Roger as a whole where this story leaves off. I do feel, however that she has set him down a better path with a little nudging head start. I would say this mostly due to the fact of his almost not being able to say thank you to Mrs. Jones. Now some may say that he was simply too overwhelmed with her kindness to say anything. But, I think that it was due to his inner self possibly questioning this change of person.
In the story, Thank You, Ma’am by Langston Hughes, the author explores integrity through Mrs. Jone’s words and actions.
