No one is infallible. Specifically, too much pride can lead to bad outcome. The unnamed narrator did so so much to prove to his parents and others around him that he was his brother’s keeper. He pretended to be nice unknown to his parents for instance he stated “there is within me(and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty born by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at time I was mean to doodle.” Right from the beginning, we know the unnamed narrator’s gut feelings against his brother. He only tried to be nice so that he can fulfill his selfish ends.
He would do anything for his environment and for the trees to be safe. The Lorax tries to send the Once-Ler’s bed down a stream so he would not return to the area. The Lorax makes a promise with the Once-ler to never chop a tree down but instead harvest the tusks of the tree. When demand grew high for his product, his family convinced him to start cutting down the trees. The Lorax asks the Once-ler which way does a tree fall, he responds with down.
Many people would argue that Ponyboy is the hero in the Outsiders. Primarily because Ponyboy didn 't even think before he went into the church to save the kids. Johnny may have paid the price, but ponyboy went first knowing he was going to save those kids. Also when Johnny killed bob Ponyboy could have run away with Johnny or stayed home with Darry but he went with Johnny because he was scared for him so most of the reason he went was to protect Johnny. When Johnny and Ponyboy ran away together to windrixville.
This rule could apply to The Outsiders if the greasers accepted that the Socs just ended up to be the rich side kids and be spoiled the greasers would be able to understand their problem and may even help ending up fixing the problem. Thus, there wouldn’t be violence if we could all be understanding of each other. The next way we could all help to stop the continuing cycle of violence is problem solving. To demonstrate problem solving, after having going through the procedure of understanding and acceptance you could problem solve the situation, such as the incident in the Rest in Peace Doc article. Even though the time was very confusing when the event had started to occur, the narrator could have found a way to find more information to get a better understanding of the situation to then figure out a solution to stop the event from being so dark.
It takes a lot of courage for her not to just go off on Cecil (and her father’s words echoing in her head) not to mention no one else was helping her against him so it was all her one this one. Scout further demonstrates her courage in the final chapters when her and Jem are attacked by Bob Ewell, when she hears Jem scream in pain, she runs back towards him not further away, this really shows her courage since most people would keep running. Even though she could’ve died by the hand of a deranged drunk man she still went back and got her brother up and out of there as fast as she possibly could, not even looking
I understood that I was supposed to be terrified by this spectacle-these two demonic creatures on this dark, lonely road. But for once in my life, I wasn't." This demonstrates heroism because previously, he would let fear control him. He is supose to be the one to control his own life, but he let Erik do that because he lacked confidence. As the book goes on, Paul starts to overcome his fears by confronting Erik and Arthur.
Courage is resistance to the fear that surrounds you. Throughout the book Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, Mildred D. Taylor, uses Cassie Logan as a character that displays courage and stands up for what she believes in no what challenges come her way. Cassie reveals her courage by standing up for Little Man, and saying that she´ll hurt whoever hurt Papa, and standing up to Mr. Barnett. Cassie is a smart, sassy and outspoken girl, her personalities help her achieve her convictions. Would you ever stand up for your brother or sister even if you knew that you would get in trouble?
Eleni Clermont H English I 9/30/17 Review and Assess Questions I do not blame the narrator for Doodle’s death. I believe the narrator was just trying to help Doodle into becoming a person that wouldn’t be made fun of when he started school. He truly believed that Doodle would come over the hill, through the rain, back to the narrator, but when Doodle didn’t come up the narrator went looking and discovered his body. 4. (a) The narrator was wanted to teach Doodle how to run, to swim, to climb trees, and to fight next.
His hatred for his father has made him fear failure and weakness throughout the story. His fear of failure has brought him to his downfall. Okonkwo strives to be everything but his father. This is clear from the very beginning when it says, “He had no
Some may think education is not important, but it can lead someone do doing the right thing, even if they are in a bad situation. When people are uneducated, they can lack empathy and integrity, which can have a big impact on the society around them. In situations where empathy or integrity is needed, it can be hard for people to express their thoughts or feelings to another person. When Bob Ewell attacked Jem and Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird, Arthur (Boo) Radley came to the rescue by stabbing Bob Ewell. When Mr. Heck Tate got there he knew what had happened, but to save Boo´s reputation, he said, ¨ Bob Ewell fell on his knife.
In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Harper Lee uses the motif of Boo Radley and finding gifts in the tree to teach Jem and Scout that they shouldn’t blindly believe the rumors they hear but find out the truth for themselves and form impressions based on it. Scout and Jem find gifts in the knothole of a tree on the Radley lot, presumably left by Boo Radley. Mr. Radley, Boo’s brother ends up plugging the knothole with cement, claiming the tree is dying. Jem stays outside on the porch until sundown after he finds out that the knothole has been blocked. When Jem comes inside, Scout comments to herself, “ [Jem] stood there until nightfall, and I waited for him.
I shook the branch and made it fall, I myself cannot truly tell whether or not I meant to shake that branch but I do regret it. I was in a competition with Finny in my own mind, but that was no reason to ruin him. I was always trying to beat him and that caused such a rage inside me that will never compare to anything because I wanted nothing more than to be him. He was almost perfect in every way and I was not, that never sat well with me. Things changed once he fell, he was dependent on me, and he needed me.
