The Fairy forgives Pinocchio time and time again despite Pinocchio’s disregard for her. Consequently from experiencing a near-death situation from drowning, Pinocchio began to see the endless love his maternal figure showers him through forgiveness and her patience with him. After he turns back into a Marionette from a donkey, Pinocchio admits, "She is my mother, and, like all other mothers who love their children, she never loses sight of me, even though I do not deserve it” (Collodi 112). He knows he had taken advantage of the Fairy yet, she does not give up on him because she is his mother and that is demonstration of filial piety. Similarly, in The Bible, there was a parable of the two sons and the father.
“Going My Way” is a film in which Bing Crosby wears a Roman collar and a St. Louis Browns ' cap for his role as the Irish-American priest Father O 'Malley. Orval knows that Jerry will especially enjoy the elderly priest named Barry Fitzgerald who speaks in an Irish brogue. This act of wanting to share this experience with his father-in-law demonstrates the genuine affection Orval has for him. Almost 40 years later, when Orval lay dying in the hospital, he will suddenly look up at his son, Jerry, and say, “I wish that you could have gotten to know your Grandpa Flynn. You would have really liked him.” (F29)

She, too, would soon be a shade with the shade of Patrick Morkan and his horse” (Joyce 22). The woman, who happily participated in the celebration and showed herself as a good singer, had signs of coming death according to her nephew. After Aunt Julia, Gabriel started to think about other relatives in the same way. While the mood was mostly caused by his last conversation with wife, Christmas atmosphere played its role too. A contrast between cheerful holiday and “returning to reality” pushed the man to more depressive thoughts.
I love the part when Mrs. Lowe saw the improvement of her son. I almost cried because of her heart-melting reaction. She has been taking care of her son who had been in frozen state for 30 years continuously because of Mrs. Lowe’s unconditional love towards Leonard. She reads to him every day because he loves reading and she understands his need even though he is static. I felt the authenticity of the acting of Ruth Nelson as she played a heart-wrenching

Having to read about how a young childish boy falls in love with his best friend 's older sister really makes you think about how you were once this boys age, and once had that young love.

The amount of time that the little boy did in waiting for the nerve to talk to the girl, the waiting for school to be over so he could see her,

The parallels between Fitzgerald’s own life and “Babylon Revisited” (along with his other stories) are apparent. Perhaps he was able to write such masterpieces by utilizing the pain and joy he felt in his own eccentric and somewhat depressing life. “Dear Pie” starts out a letter from Fitzgerald to his eleven year old daughter, Frances. He continues, saying “I am glad you are happy but I never believe much in happiness. I never believe in misery either.

As Terrowin marveled at what he had just done, he suddenly found himself being held firmly in the Marina’s loving arms. “I’m so sorry you were brought into this.” “Why didn’t you tell me this was happening.” “Knowing how brave your father was, I knew you would want to get involved.” She look him in the eye. Tears were streaming down her face. “I didn’t want you to get hurt.” Terrowin hugged her back and said to her “I’m just glad you’re okay” “You truly are a brave young man Terrowin, just like your father.” “Thank you, Marina” he sniffled, tears in his eyes.
