When it was the right time he humbly claims that he did lie about the treasure. He accepts that he should be punished for lying to them, but right now they should still trust him so they could together find and stop Everett’s wife from marrying someone else. This shows that he knows of his faults, but focused on the main goals. Everett lies, but he lies about something that does not harm others, but does it in a way so he can also benefit. His companions did not loss anything that they had instead they were freed from jail.
Marino’s use of anecdotes throughout his essay gives the audience some kind of insight into his own life by giving his audience little stories, even if they are just small ones. Marino proceeds later in the essay by giving an anecdote about his father and says, “My father didn’t do what he loved. He labored at a job he detested so that he could send his children to college. Was he just unenlightened and mistaken to put the well-being of others above his own personal interests?” (Page 2, Para. 2).
Both Tom and Rufus Weylin have personalities that match in compassion. This is shown in great detail after Dana is recaptured from running off the plantation to mail her letters out to Kevin. Rufus explains that with his interference “you know you got off easy! He didn’t hurt you nearly as much as he’s hurt others” (180) this justification is seen throughout the entire story because of the emotional attachment Rufus makes for Dana. It was clear to Tom that Rufus was responsible for Dana’s behavior “he figured your running away was my fault” (180).
He's already helped the kids a significant amount, and I think that they will repay him in a way; even if it might not be portrayed in the book. They could show the townspeople his true nature and they could understand that he's not the disgrace they thought him to be. Perhaps they could even accept him as one of their own. I also predict that, because he was lurking outside of the courthouse, he might have something to do with the trial. (Q) Now, I understand that he has a free spirit and is entitled to his own actions, but why does Dolphus conceal his intentions?
Reverend Parris, a character in the book, does not change, despite what events happened in Salem. Reverend Parris displays 3 prominent personality traits throughout The Crucible. He loves his money and would do anything to get it, including asking for more from the townspeople or to smuggle it away so only he can see and use it. Parris shows his passion for money when he states,
Will you do me that favor?’ ” (118). This shows that Scrooge actually wants to donate money from his heart without any benefit from it because now Scrooge really cares about mankind and thinks that they’re his business. This also reveals that Scrooge is kinder because of manifold way he spoke. For instance, “If you please,” or “Will you do me a favor,” are very sophisticated words
Lennie treats others with respect, in the novel the person Lennie treats with the upmost respect is George. We see this when Lennie has the idea of having ketchup on his beans but would then give it all to Lennie to show him how much he means to him and how much he would sacrifice because he is his best companion, "I was only foolin', George. I don't want no ketchup. I wouldn't eat no ketchup if it was right here beside me." "If it was here, you could have some."
The quote, “Nothing matters so much in life as to live it decently," is part of a very compassionate memoir called Romulus, My Father by Raimond Gaita, which he wrote for his father after his death. The memoir has many important themes embedded throughout, but the sense of self-identity is important as it relates to the quote being discussed. Friendship is shown to be important in achieving a sense of self-identity, as Romulus and Hora have such a strong bond and throughout the memoir, they have assisted each other to find themselves when lost. The friendship and shared conversation enjoyed by his father became a key factor in Gaita’s formative years. Friendship is esteemed, a reflection of self and social identity, a benchmark against which
I am aware I haven 't always been the most affectionate and supportive son towards my father and you, but I want to speak my mind before I 'm gone with nothing further to leave behind as evidence of my existence, but this letter to you, I want to thank you for your concern for my well being and I now understand how you may have confused love and happiness for all your material gifts and gestures evolved around money. I understand they were all good intentions on your part. Although I don 't believe in our habitual lifestyle, humanities inventions, or that material things are necessities, the hospitality I have come across during my journey from kind strangers who cared for me as one of their own whom I wish now I would be able to say goodbye to one last time; they have influenced me to believe that humanity is good and that there is still hope for a better society. I have lived an adventure I do not regret starting, but I am ashamed to have had so much love given to me throughout my life that I just now recognize as love and I apologize on my behalf. I now understand all your actions have been in my best interests.
It is because of this that Mack, as well as real world ‘bums’ resort to theft and swindling. In the book, Steinbeck refers to Mack and the boys as beauties and virtues since that is the way that he personally views them. It is most likely that Mack and the boys are referred to in this way because of their somewhat generous nature. This is similar to society’s stereotypes because many do in fact view the homeless as kind, otherwise nobody would give them any money or food. They are also similar in the way that both Mack and the boys and the homeless in general most often swindle whenever they have the chance, but they are also open to helping the other person rather than just taking and not giving back or being thankful.
Basicly he asked Philemon to treat him like he was no longer a slave, but more like a brother. Not only for him, but as someone dear to him as well. The way the letter was written was describing Onesimus as someone equal like himself. He even offered to pay his debt or whatever he was accused of stealing. He gave this advice because he wanted Philemon reputation and Christian love to show through his actions regarding Onesimus.
Considering how long Lee took to think, he must care about his family very much, " The most important thing in my life is my family." His answers were like any others yet his sincerenest could be felt. The person he looks up to the most is his father, wanting to be a person like him, to always be kind and helping people in need. When I asked Dougless what he would do if he saw a person drop his wallet or a $100 bill, he said straighforwardly, "I would pick it up and keep it." I would have done the same thing too, who wouldn 't want free money?
