But I ignored their counsel, though that course would have avoided many griefs for us” (Homer 176) . Odysseus's leadership skills improve through the challenges he faces in the book, especially after the Cyclops incident. He thought it would be a good idea to wait so he could finally face and see the cyclops instead of to escape while they could, like his men wanted to. Due to Odysseus's curiosity his men weren't able to escape when they had the chance to and had to suffer being held hostage because of Odysseus's poor leadership skills. Another way Odysseus showed horrible leadership in the beginning was when he put himself before his crewman stating, “I asked my comrades to cast lots to see which men would dare to lift that stake with me and grind it into the Cyclops’ eye when sweet sleep overtook him” (Homer 179).

He have showed compassion towards the little girls. Based on my experience, I once have seen this group of people was crowding around this blind girl who fell in the water and no one even seems to be running to help her. Suddenly, there’s this man who hurriedly jumped into the water and help her. Other people who just stand there and watch have the ability to help someone yet they did not show any compassion. On the other hand, the guy with no hesitation jumped into the water to save the girl.
Amir jumps into the water and Hassan follows; “”But no one was swimming because they said a monster had come to the lake. It was swimming at the bottom waiting… Everyone is scared to get in the water… there’s no monster you say… and before anyone can stop you, you dive into the water, start swimming away”” (Hosseini 59). They swim out to the middle of the lake to show the crowd the only way to overcome
On one normal day during the summertime, Atticus had to show off some of his skills, which took the children aback; he shot a dog in one try. Jem was speechless; after several attempts to work up the courage to ask his dad what had just happened, Heck Tate started to ask, “‘Didn’t you know your Daddy’s-’” “‘Hush, Heck’” Atticus had politely stopped Heck from finishing his sentence (Lee 128). This shows Atticus values modesty because he cut off Heck before he could go on talking about his unfair advantage over nature, his shooting skills. In fact, Atticus is so modest, he did not even want somebody else gloating over his skills, even to his own children. Another character who values modesty is Miss Maudie Atkinson, their neighbor across the street.
. So may you all” (Gardner 12).

Finally, Grendel is done with life he get’s to the cliff and sits there thinking about what’s going to happen in his life flashes before his eyes and he thinks of how Beowulf got him and claims it was an accident because she slipped on blood, so he runs out of the hall. “Grendel stumbles out of the hall and into the darkness of the night…...Grendel calls for his mother one last time” (Gardner 12).
Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different. Later in the book we see how this really affected Johnny because he ended up killing bob, the soc who tried jumping him and ponyboy. If the socs never tried jumping then neither Bob nor Johnny would be dead. I will apply this to my life by always trying to find a better solution. We now know from reading this book that fighting may solve problems but it will create bigger ones.
Something happened, so Johnny had to kill bob. They were not trying to get caught, so they had to hide in an abandoned church. The true outsiders are the ones who see beyond the greasers and Socials, division. Pony boy recited a poem to Johnny, so he felt the differences between him and pony boy. Pony boy did not care about the issues between the greasers, and the Socials, he was just living a normal life.
“What he came for, specifically is to snatch sergei’s fish, to steal it away . Before the mind of Sergei Goralick really understands what it is his body has done, he seems to have taken the burner off of the stove and hit the boy in the head.”() This statement alludes to us that he is not a patient person. He judges automatically thinking that he knows what he is gonna do but in that case, he is incorrect. He is an impulsive person who judges them by their actions and he cannot control his reflexes as it comes natural to him. If he were to be patient and see what the outcome may have been, he could have avoided that problem he put himself into.
It is where they will naturally build their homes, and reduces the impact of micro-sediments to fish and macroinvertebrates (Interstream Restoration Services, 2016). However, this method also has its advantages and disadvantages. Two positives of using the sand jet are that it selectively removes bad sediment, without any harmful side effects, and it has a portable size, making it easy to move from one area of the river to another, or from one river to another. Some disadvantages of the Sand Jet are that it doesn 't get rid of the chemicals in the water, and it is manually operated, and labor intensive, as someone has to scour a riverbed with
