They way they treated Matt is just like how today when someone will count another person out because they are fat or because they are handicapped and it is wrong. Really and truly most of the time it’s not their
He was not only careless with the feelings of others, but also with his well being. He didn’t seem to know what would be awaiting him in the wild because he didn’t bring many supplies or do too much to prepare, which is what set him apart from a typical adventurer.

He is superior to other men, has heroic virtues, shows great capacity for emotion, and is rebellious. Malloy’s above strength and talent as a pugilist puts him above the other dockworkers, and he certainly presents pride, which is the greatest of a hero’s virtues according to Aristotle. The depth of guilt Malloy displays over Joey Doyle’s murder and the grief he displays over his brother Charley’s murder illustrate his sensibility. Lastly, Malloy’s Satanic rebellion is his decision to testify against Friendly rather than continue the deaf and dumb policy; by speaking up, he rebels against Friendly’s authority, breaks the social norms of the community, and creates chaos among the established
Paul seems to be afraid of Erik, which is reasonable given the things that he has put Paul through. For example, Paul is a constant punching bag for Erik, as he mocks him and feels superior towards him; Erik being the older sibling and thus has more freedom. The story also gives hints that Erik has something to do with Paul's lack of peripheral sight. However, despite that Paul is afraid of Erik, is doesn't mean that Paul isn't willing to indirectly go against him. He has seen many heinous things that Erik has done, like punching Tino and mocking Mike Costello, so he seems to be waiting for the right time to strike.
The evidence clearly shows that Friar Lawrence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet because he could've gave some helpful advice but he decided to get involved because he is loyal to both of them. We also see he is loyal when Juliet threatens to kill herself because he had to intervene and make the plan. This theme is very important to all humanity because you can trust someone and be loyal so much, but if one thing goes wrong it could all come back and hurt you in the

At the fault of his father, he reacted rashly. “When Walt’s double life came to light, the revelations inflicted deep wounds. All parties suffered terrible.” This would be a negative turning point in anyone's life, but Chris was wrong to just pack up and take himself to his death.
All humans express these qualities to some degree, but Macbeth let them completely control him. Once Macbeth became king he was paranoid because he did not want to lose all the power he had just gained. Macbeth's feelings caused him to make bad decisions that ended up harming him in the
I think Amir and Hassan both have power, although they have gotten to their power differently. Hassan got into his power by just being a respectable and trust whereas Amir got his power the less respectably way, because he was just born into it. Even though Hassan had more plight to get to where he was it would be worth it after the arduous journey, where If Amir used his power in a way that was respectable and helped others he would have way more power. Due to the way he used his power I no longer feel any animosity for Amir. I do not like how morose Amir has been throughout most of the book.

Jason Compson’s inability to get over the grudge that he has for Caddy, proves that one must forgive what has happened in the past to be happy in the present. Similar to Quentin and Benjy, Jason is an unreliable narrator as he does not accurately give a representation of what is going on around him. Although Jason understands the difference between past and present, certain details are muddled and twisted by his point of view. An example of this is when Jason is asked to show a customer “a churn or a nickel’s worth of screen hooks”. Both of these items are extremely unalike and would never be asked for as a substitution for one another.
