On March 23, 1775, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” was heard all throughout St. John 's Church. These famous words were not only a great speaker looking to have his voice heard, but they would have an everlasting impact on young English students studying the use of ethos, logos, and pathos. Patrick Henry also used figurative languages such as allusions, parallelism, and biblical references to bring his speech to life. In this specific piece of literature, qualities like independence and individualism are exceedingly prominent, this all being due to Henry’s use of literary devices.

Through the development of the characters, Bert and Mr. Banks, Stevenson illuminates the need to preserve some of the childlike wonder, as one grows up, in order to be happy within their adult life. Bert, for not being a child, is one of the most childlike and happy characters, throughout the film. After seeing Mary in the clouds,
When jealousies arise through the flirtation of Nunkie, a girl who takes a liking to Tea Cake, Janie and Tea Cake fight but talk through and express their feelings over the flirtation to one another until each gives in and they become united once more (188–191). This jealousy is completely unlike Jody’s jealousy of men looking at Janie’s hair in the store; where Jody refuses to open up and explain his feelings to Janie because of his pride, Tea Cake and Janie are able to communicate their emotions to one another and resolve the tension. While her other two marriages were action based and emotional deaths of love, the pride that kills Janie’s third marriage is a physical death. Tea Cake pridefully refuses an offer to take Janie and escape from the Everglades before the hurricane comes upon them. Tea Cake tells ‘Lias, who has offered he and Janie a ride out of the Everglades “Man, de money’s too good on the muck.
The hero proves himself and the rest of the world that he or she has overcome their fright and that they are capable of surviving as well as succeeding without the help of their parents or any other authoritative figures. Even if leaving one’s loved home, just like Snow White had to, is at first a hard decision which hurts, it helps children to understand that letting go and not being afraid of change can be a good thing at the end. At first it might be difficult to cope with but it might lead to a better life, just like Snow White’s, who, in her interest, finds kind strangers who help her.

Janie, however, decides to play checkers because she believes that playing checkers will make her happy. When Tea Cake asks her if she wants to play checkers, Janie says, “Yes, Ah do, and then agin Ah don’t know whether Ah do or not, ‘cause nobody ain’t never showed me how” (95), referring to the fact that she wants to play checkers with him, despite society as a whole objecting to her playing checkers and refusing to teach her how to play.

The narrator says, “They caught two or three and got home just before day” (102), describing the way that Janie went with Tea Cake to go fishing.
Given the points here, Simon is a character in Lord of the Flies that plays an important, yet quiet role. Often represented as an angelic individual who serves others as needed, and isn’t biased. The evidence of Simon’s altruistic deeds is meaningful because children are selfish, yet Simon is the opposite: without bias, he serves sincerely anyways. In the same way, teachers in modern society do the most to educate and help strengthen growing generations, yet they’re underappreciated and underpaid. Like Simon, who should’ve been more respected for the things he did and sacrificed, teachers deserve the same respect as people in higher occupations.

Parents can affect their children’s development based on various factors which primarily include: direct interaction, emotional identification, and family stories. Direct interaction, which is the easiest way to communicate with children, involves praising or rewarding the children for doing something good or punishing them in case they did an undesirable action as well as the transferring knowledge. (11) For example, if the children asked for a candy in a polite way, they will get praised for it and rewarded as a consequence.
Atticus’s parenting of Scout and Jem is very unique in that he treats his children as equal human beings, answering any question they have, and giving them advice when they need it.
