Then I’ll drop you off in front of her place like always, and she’ll never know the difference.” (Pfeffer,4). He is paying off the money that he owes , but first she must steal the money in order for him to be not in debt anymore. “No, I just thought maybe you could borrow the money. Just for a day or two, until I straighten out all my finances. Your mother would never know the difference.
Jones says that he ought to be her son, for she ¨would teach him right from wrong¨- (Pg 5). She may be implying that his parents aren't doing a good job of raising him, and the community should do what she is doing: teaching him a lesson but also giving him a dinner. This is important as it shows that Mrs. Jones might feel motherly to Roger, and it shows Roger that learning honorable behavior can help you in life. In the end Mrs. Jones tries to teach Roger not to steal again by saying: “Do not make the mistake of latching onto my pocket book nor anybody else's” - (Pg 7). She might think he will listen to her and not steal again.
What none of you know is how much he was willing to give your mom the money that she wanted back. Even though she was the one that told him not to pay anymore and refused to cash the checks he gave her, he was willing to give it back to her. He tried to explain that with the 30,000 interest that she tacked on, that he wouldn’t be able to afford the $833 she was requesting be paid in the next
Or less.” – This quote is connected to the thesis statement because, in the quote Dylan talks about how his mother didn’t care about him and would trade him away for pocket change, this indicates neglect and mental abuse. The research is connected to my thesis statement because it shows that fathers are more likely to fulfill their child support obligations than mothers which reflects on Dylan’s mom neglect towards him. The image is connected to my thesis statement because, it shows a lonely victim of neglect and abuse and the negative and depressing effect it has had on

The author in this article uses a lot of ethos when talking about Abigail Adams. In the text the author states, “By passing this money on to Abigail 's grandsons, Louisa may have indicated disapproval of her mother-in law 's decision to exclude all male descendants” (Holton 34). This is talking about how Abigail’s daughter-in-law passed down money in her will to her sons instead of all to women. Abigail though would approve of this because Louisa is using her power that she now has to do as she wishes with her stuff. This is ethos because she is doing what she believes is morally good in her opinion.
Secondly, others need to help out. In the story “Blackberries in June”, Jamie’s parents seem to be putting a lot of the pressure of helping Linda and her husband Charlton out on Jamie. As Matt notes that “I didn’t hear your momma say a word about them helping out.” (213). It’s a little inconsiderate just to demand that a person gives up their house and the person demanding it gives up little to nothing. Jamie’s mother and father are Linda’s family too, so they should help out as
Raskolnikov 's constant indecision about committing charitable acts conveys his personal inclination toward trusting reason over his emotions, reflecting his belief that his family values self-preservation over self-sacrifice. After reading his mom’s letter, Raskolnikov deduces Dunya wants to marry Luzhin to improve the family’s financial status despite not being fully in love with him, providing evidence of Raskolnikov 's family allowing utilitarianism to guide vital life decisions; Raskolnikov wants to protect his sister’s heart by ending the engagement, but he realizes through reason that he cannot prevent this marriage due to his lowly status. When deciding whether or not to help a drunk girl, Raskolnikov initially leans on sympathy but ultimately relies on reasonable self-preservation, which the narrator describes with urgent, forceful diction almost identical to his
Yule Mae and her husband saved up to send their boys to College since they were young but when it was time they were a bit short. Yule Mae asked Mrs.Hilly for a small loan but Mrs.Hilly refused her the loan saying she did it because she was being a good Christian and how she was doing her a favour by not lending her money. In the Bible it states “ Give to the one who asks of you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” (Matthew 5:42). This is ironic since she helped raise money for poor African children but wouldn 't help a local family in need by giving a loan to Yule Mae. Knowing Yule Mae is seeking money Mrs.Hilly planted a ring in her house worth enough money to help her send her children to college.

This is showing that Ashes usually talks like her dad and since she said something that sounded like something her mom would say, her dad got surprised. Ashes thinks and acts like her dad.
