He remembered the only line that his one friend told him which included the words “They is” which is grammatically incorrect. Anders did not tell his other friends about one this other kid told him because he realized that he would be a jerk if he did that. Those two words gave Anders some kind of excitement because he did not expect those words at all. That was his final memory because it gave him the happiness because it was truly unexpected for him compared to the life that he was in when he was still alive wherein he always critics things because he thought that he already saw all the things that may be unexpected for others. When I read this story, the main character’s personality is static when he was alive and when he got into that bank robbery situation where he criticizes the bank robbers without hesitation.

I thought of this creature’s spirit sagging, and realized, he had no friend, but I had no dragon. The silver scales parted as the dragons face broke out in a wide grin. If you’ve never seen a dragon smile, it’s a sight to behold, well worth your while. A powerful alliance was formed that day as together we walked out of the castle and into the crisp night air.

A couple examples would be in chapter 6 when Stradlater declares Holden can not do anything w=right, since he wrote Stradlater 's paper about his brother Allie’s baseball mitt instead of its original prompt, so he rips up the paper right there and then and tosses it in the trash. He released his anger into the paper as a defense mechanism and ignored Stradlater afterwards. Soon after, in the chapter, Holden asks Stradlater about Jane, because he feels something fishy went on, but he did not answer any questions clearly, which frustrated Holden. He projected his anger at Stradlater which in time turned into a fight between the two, leaving Holden all beat up and bloody. He did not take any action of displacement at that moment because his feelings were too overwhelming to bear.
In the beginning, Benedick acts like a jerk to most characters and is never straightforward towards them. He never thinks of loving others, but thinks others love him back when he says, “then is courtesy a turncoat. But it is certain I am loved of all ladies, only you excepted; and I would I could find in my heart that I had not a hard heart, for truly I love none”(126.96.36.199-125). Benedick does not require status to be happy or to love someone. He eventually finds love to Beatrice and changes personalities by the end.
He immediately ran up to me and begged me to keep quiet and not to tell Audrey, my closest friend. When I walked into this situation, I was the receiver of the secret while the teller turned out to be my good guy friend who just got caught in a lie. In this situation, the random girl whom I just met didn 't care that I walked in on them making out, because she didn’t care he had a girlfriend. She sat there while Nick explained the situation to me. The gender had an effect on this situation because it wasn 't the random girls fault, but it was the boy.
He wondered what was wrong with Bartleby and tried many ways to help, but he never accepted the Layer’s requests. On the contrary, in Crane's story the ending is positive and is marred with optimism. The society was confined in a rigid way of thought, but this was changed when Jack Potter went against community norms and came back home with a bride. The ending of any story is essential in that it serves as a fulfillment for the audience, but the setting is also

Darry had been forced to grow up faster to take the place as caretaker of his brothers
Nonetheless, a few of the lessons included in The Great Gatsby are not considered politically correct by any standard. The narrator, Nick Carraway, tends to surround himself with folk he isn’t particularly fond of, including Jay Gatsby. At one point in the novel, he thinks, “It was the only compliment i ever gave him, because I disapproved of him from beginning to end” (pg 162). Nick obviously never liked Gatsby, which doesn’t add up because throughout the novel, Gatsby appeared to be Nick’s best friend; he did favors for him, hung out a majority of the book, kept secrets for him, and yet Nick must have been faking it. If Nick didn’t like Gatsby, why did he put up with him all the time?
First off your choices could leave you to bad consequences. You might think you’re doing good for yourself but could really be hurting yourself in the end. For example Ponyboy did something so innocent but got hurt doing it. In the novel, Ponyboy thinks “I had a long walk home and no company but I usually lone it anyway, for no reason except that I like to watch movies undisturbed.”(Hinton 1,2) later a group of socs came and jumped Ponyboy, and since he chose to go to the movie theatre by himself he ended up defenseless. Ponyboy wasn’t doing anything bad, he was doing something good for himself and ended up being beat up for it.

However after a few chapters it is obvious to the readers that Nick’s perception of Gatsby has changed. Nick disapproves of his drastic actions to win back Daisy. An example of this is the quote, “He wanted nothing more than that she should go to Tom and say: ‘ I never loved you.’” This is obviously a drastic measure to take for Daisy and is unreasonable. However throughout the whole novel Nick stays with Gatsby and even facilitates him have Daisy cheat on Tom, and he remains Gatsby’s only true friend throughout
