Bread, soup-these were my whole life. I was a body. Perhaps less that that even: a starved stomach.” Wiesel uses his cleverness and knows that he might need to sell his gold crown one day to save himself, whether he will sell it for food or clothes. Another moment when Wiesel uses his cleverness is when he is able to trade his ration of bread to be closer to his father in Buchenwald. This shows a whole other level of cleverness to understand the value of bargaining goods in order to achieve what is needed.
Elie relentlessly gives his ration of bread and soup to his father, trying to keep him alive. Food begets nourishment, satisfaction, and occasionally happiness; to Elie food compels worry, seeing that his father fades regardless of how much he’s given. A meager decision shows his maturity, few children his age put forth the effort to show care for their parents, much less to keep them viable. Elie’s relationship with Shlomo grows stronger through their experiences until death. The little, European boy transforms from living as Elie Wiesel to surviving as A-7713, but his relationship with his father alters from essentially the silent treatment to a genuine love.
Besides, Douglass has utilized the ironic tool in the paragraph of his essay. For instance, although he lived as a slave at the time of his learning process, he explains to the readers that he brought bread when doing one part of chores so he could exchange for a reading lesson from local children before his return. He acknowledges: "I felt much better off in this regard than many of the poor white children in our neighborhood" (Douglass 26), which is ironic because Douglass himself would probably be in a worse position. Moreover, this kind of irony also presented at the top of the essay, Douglass called himself a slave which reminded the audiences that slaves did not happen in some faraway land; it happened in America – the land of freedom that can also be the land of slavery. Additionally, it is hard to believe for the white American that in the mid-1880s, a black person could even learn to read and less write a book (Shmoop Editorial Team).

They knew it was self defense but they didn't want to take that risk. So, they went to Dally and they got some money or food, a gun, and a jacket for Ponyboy.

In the novel, a Palestinian character, Naguib al -Khalili, thought of opening his own bakery in Brooklyn where he baked “the cakes that tasted of home” (137) that smelled and tasted “of sweet and distant places and times” (138). As a Palestinian refugee, he longed to return to his homeland, where he saved every penny he earned from his bakery in hopes to “go back [home] and get married in his village once he had rebuilt his father’s house” (139). However, the dream of returning faded away as the years passed, and like many displaced Palestinians, the only thing that remained of his identity is “proclaimed in a sheaf of old

In celebration, the Jews will partake in a special meal in which included unleavened bread, lamb, boiled eggs, bitter herbs and other symbolic foods. In the book of Exodus, God instructs the Israelites to eat unleavened bread, derived from the word, Matzoh, a bread similar to flat bread, in which does not contain any yeast. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread; on the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day shall be cut off from Israel. When Pharaoh finally freed the Israelites, they were in such a hurry to leave Egypt in fear that they would die, they took their dough without it having a chance to rise. One of the most striking symbols of the Passover is the roasted bone called Zeroa, which commemorates the lamb sacrifice made the night God struck the homes of Egyptians.
