Each one of Opal’s actions were filled with kindness, sometimes intentional and other times unintentional, but all benefited the people she reached out to. I think Opal learned subconsciously through her mother leaving that ever action you make can affect those around you and Opal did not want her actions to have negative effects. When Opal learned of Otis’ arrest, “[she] swept the floor real slow that day. [She] wanted to keep Otis company. [She] didn’t want him to be lonely.
As Elisa speaks to the tinker, Steinbeck shows how the tinker feels about women: “It must be nice,” she said. “It must be very nice. I wish women could do such things.” “It ain’t the right kind of a life for a woman” (455). The word choices Steinbeck made emphasize how the tinker thinks women should stick to house work. In “Women’s Space,” the author also shows how the tinker feels by further explaining his actions: “On the way into town, Elisa sees the tinker's caravan up ahead, and her chrysanthemum sprouts on the ground beside the road.
The theme of this book is learning to love and care for the people around. How I came to this conclusion is by how Liesel acts towards Max, her foster parents, Rudy, and her neighbors. Liesel cares for people even if they weren't like her and she doesn't understand why there is hatred in this world. She wanted the world to be a happy place for everyone including Jews to be friends with one another. On page 426 in ‘The Book Thief’, when Rudy’s father went to war Liesel could relate to Rudy because “her mother.
Loving can be one of the greatest gifts that can be given to someone. Instead of Mrs. Jones getting revenge on Roger for attempting to steal Mrs. Jones pocketbook. To begin with, Mrs. Jones shows her loving personality when they were finished eating she got up and said, “Now, here, take these ten dollars and buy yourself some blue suede shoes.” Mrs. Jones shows a loving personality in the quote because she gave Roger ten dollars to buy a pair of blue suede shoes, but before this had happen Roger had attempted to steal Mrs. Jones pocketbook . Also this quote represents a loving character trait because she gives money to Roger, because Mrs. Jones knows Roger has no money to buy the shoes so she gives Roger money. Next, Mrs. Jones shows a
Katniss was desperate for food and was on the verge of giving up but still had an ounce of hope which paid off in the long run and now she knows that she can survive because of the events in her childhood that happened to give her hope and let her survive. When Katniss needed direction to not get killed by the District 2 girl she just trusted her instincts which almost got her killed but helped her live too. Imagine losing your hearing if you were a hunter, that would be devastating, but once more Katniss trusted and held on to the little hope she had to survive. The Hunger Games as a whole has a good amount of themes, but survival is one of the more important themes because even though humans in the modern age don’t use the same survival skills used in the Games humans still have to be able to survive the current world even if it means to sacrifice something else. Finally let me ask you again after reading all that Katniss had to go through, what can you survive if it meant life or
To Roger Mrs. Bates was being a mother-like figure to him, she feeds Roger, she doesn't call law enforcement to take him away to jail, and she then gives him money to buy the blue suede shoes he wanted. I believe that Mrs. Luella was trying to be a mother-like figure to Roger all along and not treat him like some low life criminal. It's clear that Mrs. Luella had a big impact on Roger when she first catches him trying to steal her purse. In the middle of the store even Roger
This is proven in the text when it states, “‘I’m not sure this is a good idea,’ Parvana said to Shauzia the next morning……….Getting left behind did not sound so terrible to Parvana, but with a quick look across the market to the painted in window with her secret friend, she obediently fell in behind Shauzia.” This evidence shows that even though Parvana didn’t want to dig up bones, she persevered anyway and did it to make more money for her family. Parvana decided that her family was more important than her feelings about bone
She wanted him to behave because she saw him with a dirty face and some worn out shoes she was trying to tell him to behave, so he could get a good education. Roger tries to regain trust with Mrs. Jones by asking her did she need anything from the market. She fed and washed his face for him. She didn’t want to ask him about his family because she thought it would make him sad and embarrass him. In the story Mrs. Jones says "
I could have helped you ya know,” Re asked after taking a massive bite of her BLT. “I didn’t want you to get hurt or worry about me.” We sat there for a few minutes before I piped up again. “How did you get that gun anyways?” “Aunt Martha let me borrow it when I told her about her plan. In her words ‘I think I can help you. After all, we are family’.” “I guess we owe Aunt Martha a few favors for everything she’s done for us.
Luella Bates Washington Jones is confident because of her influence on Roger. For example, Ms. Luella Bates trusted him after she talked to him. She is so confident her treatment of Roger will influence his decisions. He “could’ve made a dash down the hall and run run run run run!” but he didn’t. She even leaves her pocketbook on the daybed while she turns away from him to cook dinner.
While her daughter in the other hand is also content that this long and difficult case in which she involved her and her friend Cas in is finally over. Risking their very lives trying to apprehend a pedophile in person was quite foolish although they did a rather impressive job in dealing with him in multiple confrontation. Layla was tremendously satisfied to receive the attention and admiration from her small crowd who consisted of her mother and some of their peers. Although Cas could of done without all of the attention because it brought back some past problems but eventually dealt with them like she did with her prior
The Auld family was described in the next chapter. At first she was very kind to Douglass which threw him for a loop because normally he would’ve been punished for something as simple as looking her in the eye. However, not long after she too became cruel and completely changed as a person according to Douglass. Before turning cruel Mrs. Auld would teach Douglass some words as well as the alphabet. Nevertheless, this too was brought to a halt when Hugh Auld finds out.
