The fish broker in the market would pay them and sell the fish all over western Syria. Abdulrahman’s father had died a year earlier and his mother was sickly, but he loved this work enough that he’d do it for free” (4). For Zeitoun’s extensive passion, he would do anything, “[even] for free.” To support the protagonist, along with anecdotes- Dave Eggers additionally includes images of Zeitoun and his family. By introducing family and revealing background stories, it initiates the reader’s understanding and empathy for Zeitoun as a character- exactly what Dave Eggers intends to do. Here, Dave Eggers tells “He and his brother Luay and sister Zakiya were playing with their brother Mohammed, eighteen years older.
“All we got is the family unbroke. Like a bunch a cows, when the lobos are ranging, stick all together. I ain’t scared while we’re all here, all that’s alive, but I ain’t gonna see us bust up. The Wilsons here is with us, an’ the preacher is with us. I can’t say nothin’ if they want to go, but I’m a-goin’ cat-wild with this here piece a bar-arn if my own folks busts up” (Steinbeck 231).
I was taught to cast a fishing line and how to handle a 12 gauge shotgun by my father and my Uncle Joe. We’d spend countless hours fishing for trout, but most of our time went towards duck hunting and it is still the best way for me to relax and clear my mind. Duck hunting is a very social kind of hunt and that means it calms my spirit. Hunters experience nature in such a way that they become part of it, and when that experience is shared with another human, it forms a bond like no other. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.
Before the turning point, Bud despised being called by other names because of what his mother constantly told him when she was alive. He also did not have family that he could trust and give love to. “I wasn’t about to let anybody call me Buddy and stick a pencil up my nose all the way to the R. I swung as hard as I could at Todd’s balloon head.” (Curtis, 13). Bud did not allow someone to call him Buddy, as Bud when Bud was called Buddy, he punched Todd Amos. After the turning point, Bud is more open with people calling him with another name for that Bud knows that they are calling him that with love, and Bud has a great liking for the name.
“She was like a factory with the little snappers. She fed an entire fish head and a sizable portion of the shoulders to a school of piranhas that resided in the caverns of her mouth,” the quotes shows a comparison of aunt Maggie’s eating of fish to that of piranhas, which are a group of ruthless fishes (Hyde, 94). Hyde uses the Creole language to narrate a favorite past time of the Hyde’s family traditions on Spanish Cay. On Sundays, the children were given that opportunity to entertain the adults and they used songs, skits and poems. All these things were conducted in Creole, which Hyde narrates to keep the essence of the meaning.
In Shakespeare 's’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Helena, Hermia, Demetrius and Lysander go through quite a lot of trouble before they emerge from the woods with their problems all but resolved. While Helena, Hermia, and Demetrius all remark that they remember the events of their night in the woods, even if they do think it a dream. Yet, Lysander never implies that he knows what his other three companions are talking about. Robin Goodfellow also implies that the herb he places in Lysander’s eye will cause him to forget everything that happened while he had the juice in his eye. When Robin Goodfellow put the herb that reversed the love juice’s properties in Lysander’s eye, it had the side effect of causing Lysander to forget everything that happened the night before.
At first, Jem was easily startled. After he went through the consequence he changed into a more patient person, but he still wasn’t sorry for destroying Ms. Dubose’s bushes.

My personal favorite is volunteering at the animal shelter just being with all the dogs and cats is just amazing. It gives me a warm feeling knowing the animals have found a good home. On sundays we usually give out food to the people who come to mass but if we need money for the youth group we make bake sales or sell other types of foods that people will enjoy . On mother's day and father's day the church members plan a feast for all the families and they celebrate those special moments with them this event is on the closest sunday to
But for some reason he'd always accidently kill them. ¨ You gonna give me that mouse or do I have to sock you?¨ ( Steinbeck 8). George would never let lennie have a mouse, which made lennie feel like he was alone and wish his aunt was there.. Even though lennie and George, all George did was control him. George had specifically told lennie not to talk to anyone, but sometimes people get a little bit lonely.
When I’m having trouble on algebra homework, he helps me. When I need help finding any measurements of something I need to make/build, he always is there for me.

Some nosy teenagers spying on him one night claimed to see Leedskalnin “float the massive coral blocks through the air, like a hot air balloon on a summer day,” but no one would listen to them.

After, Leedskalnin’s death Coral Castle was passed to his nephew, then to a family in Illinois.
Manolin has been Santiago’s apprentice and friend since he was five years old. Santiago acts as a second father figure for Manolin, taking him on fishing trips and discussing baseball statistics. Even when Manolin’s real father forces him to find another boat to fish with because of Santiago’s misfortune, Manolin is one of Santiago’s only supporters. Since he can’t help him fish anymore, the young boy shows his love and devotion to the old man by helping him with everyday activities that are difficult for Santiago because of his age, such as carrying gear from the boat and fetching coffee and bait. This is shown on page 19: “‘Keep the blanket around you,’ the boy said.

I first saw the warm in the beaker on the bottom crawling around and balling up. Next, I used a pipet to suck one of the worms out. I put my worm on my plastic piece that was filled with spring water. The water was full enough to fill the container about half way. I put plenty of water so the worm would not dry up and die.
