Throughout the novel Watership Down by Richard Adam, the power of the human spirit is constantly demonstrated by the actions of the main characters. One such time is when the main characters leave their home warren despite the Threarah, who they are accustomed to listening to and obeying, telling them not to do so. Another time the power of the human spirit is portrayed is when the rabbits cross the merciless heather without turning back. One final example is when the rabbits get Bigwig out of the snare. In Watership Down, a chief theme is that the resiliency of the human spirit prevails over all other physical and emotional barriers.
To others, it is natural for him to do the deed because of his talent, however, it is very difficult for Atticus to shoot the dog because of his hatred of both guns and his natural talent because it gives “...him an unfair advantage over most living things” so he “...he decided he wouldn’t shoot until he had to” (130). For him to be able to finish the job means that he set aside his very strong sense of morals and his goal to teach his children morals in order to protect his town. Since the dog represents the racism of Maycomb, Atticus both symbolically rose up against racism by killing the dog and literally by defending a black man. When the rabid dog came to Maycomb, everyone in the town cowardly ran into the safety of their house and locked everything up, except for Atticus. No one stands up to the evilness of racism even if they do not agree with it, such as Mrs. Maudie, who had clear opposition to racism.

All around the land are snares and wires set out to capture the rabbits living there. Fiver is proven correct once more when Bigwig, another rabbit, is caught in one of the numerous snares and is hurt. In addition, Fiver also foreshadows the harm that is to come to Hazel when he sets out on a mission to retrieve does for his warren. “‘But there’s something that frightens me about you yourself, Hazel: just you, not any of the others. You’re all alone, sharp and clear, like a dead branch against the sky’” (209).
Back in those days, it was not un common for people to laugh at dwarfs but the King and his followers take it to a whole new level. It made it even more difficult on Hop-frog that the king of all people chose to pick on him, because people get blinded from what’s really important and choose to follow the King. It was rare that someone would try to stand up for Hop-frog, but one day the King was in the process of convincing Hop-frog to drink. The King’s face turned purple with frustration as Hop-frog declined. Trippetta politely went to her knees to beg the King to stop and “spare” her friend Hop-frog.
I may not get another chance as this rascal; besides as well as being my enemy, he's a Sorcerer and a dangerous one.” (McLeod, 13). In other words, Muskrat is very heroic. He is willing to die for the survival of most of his companions. However, Nanabush works like sociopath. He is very intelligent and carefully plan things ahead before doing any
Lastly, Henry was just plain old scared as they said “He ran like a coward.” The second war was like Henrys’ first brutal battle it was obviously too intense for him. If someone is entering their first brutal battle of course they are going to be scared and as they say “Henry quivered.” This shows that he was scared so he had to run away. No one can blame him for fleeing. The main reason why he ran away was because he thought that they had lost so the only thing that came to mind was him running. The book says “He too threw down his gun and fled.
Before chapter 2, Jack was afraid to kill the pig. But, after the littleluns said that there was a beastie, he initiated the plan to hunt and kill the beast. This quote portrays how the beastie somehow started the savage instinct in Jack because even though he knows that the beast does not exist, he is still determined to kill it. Additionally, they went more wild when some boys have claimed they saw the beast. “This head is for the beast.
People always get misjudged and want to say who or what a person is like before they even meet him or her. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, has many examples of misjudging people, and some of those people could be better, or worse, than what that person judged. Most of these characters in the book do not have the sense to meet someone before they judge them. Even if a character knows a character, they still judge, and they judge wrong most of the time. People just don’t have enough sense, or manners, to not judge.
In the novel "Lord of the Flies", the boys attempted to create a working society with hunters, a chief, where everyone could be safe, and more importantly feel safe. This society though didn 't work out; there were too many outlying problems, like Jack wanting desperately to best Ralph, or Roger being a secret sociopath, or the fact that throughout the entire book they were terrified of some beast, which was really just them all along. In "Lord of the Flies" the boys are so blinded by terror and excitement that they don 't take any time to clear their heads, think, and realize that what they have been doing is completely wrong. In the book one character, Simon, realized that the beast that they had been scared of the whole time had really been them, and when he tries to tell the others what he has discovered, they beat him to death with spears before anyone can hear or understand what he was trying so hard to tell them. In the book one of the characters, Ralph, says "Things are breaking up.
He thinks that he might lose and sends another rabbit (Vervain) to fight him. This is the start of the collapse of sandleford. Character quote- woundwort fighting the dog.

Secondly, General Zaroff evokes a level of terror never experienced before by the victim. When Rainsford first meets General Zaroff, he thinks of him as an affable man but really the General has been waiting to hunt Rainsford ever since he entered the house. As the General and Rainsford are talking about hunting General Zaroff reveals that hunting animals does not interest him anymore. The general said “We will have some capital hunting, you and I” (Connell 6). This statement makes Rainsford nervous because the General says he does not hunt animals anymore but he still hunts a very dangerous game.
The Three Little Alpacas Once upon a time in a world where rabid squirrels viciously eat alpacas, three little alpacas sleepily woke up to terrible news. The wacky little fur balls were outgrowing their mother 's’ home and were forced to build their own. Normally their mother was a very kind person and accepting of others, but she was getting tired of a cramped house. “I 'm sorry to do this, but I’m going to have to make you leave. You are too old for my care and too big for this house.” “When you leave be careful of the rabid squirrels, they will try to eat you and destroy your house.” The trio of crazy alpacas named John, Jamal, and Hermes were on their way down a long dark road.
