This quote shows that even though Huckleberry Finn’s plan works, Tom doesn’t care about it because it is simple and doesn’t have anything complicated in it, while Tom’s plan is complicated and adventurous. “‘But looky here, Tom, what do we want to warn anybody for that something’s up? Let them find out for themselves--it’s their lookout.’ ‘Yes, I know; but you can’t depend on them’” (p.267). This shows that Tom wants to warn the Phelps family that Jim is to be stolen so that he and Huckleberry will have some opposition when freeing him. Finally, Tom Sawyer also thinks that being terribly injured just makes a situation more interesting.
During these affairs David rarely thinks about the possible repercussions. Irene always seems like an afterthought although she constantly supports David and his decisions. She feels neglected at times and sees that David never seems to care that Irene is constantly bothered, and does not care to find out what is bothering her. Irene is a static character, but even static characters can play a big role in leading to the decisions that main characters
He had to choose between something he had become accustomed to and something he wanted to have. There was also the merchant’s daughter, she wasn’t important as his flock, because she didn’t depend on him. Maybe she didn’t remember him. He was sure that it made no difference to her on which day he appeared: for her, every day was the same, and when each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises (27).” This shows that his decisions are based on his subjectivity and he look for practical reasons in the process of decision-making. He also associates his dream of ravelling freely with wind, as wind is not restricted.
The speech characteristic that Tea Cake encourages Janie with is truth. He is honest when he declares his feelings to Janie, and he has no intentions of hurting her for his own benefit. Chapter Twelve: 1. The town does not approve of Janie and Tea Cake’s relationship. They believe that it is too sudden for Janie to be involved with another man when Joe just passed away.
Cherry had said her companions were excessively cool, making it impossible to feel anything, but then she could watched nightfalls. Randy should be excessively cool, making it impossible to feel anything, but then there was agony in his eyes." (115-116) This shows how Greasers and Socs are fundamentally the same, yet diverse in the meantime. Every one of them are people, so why treat Socs like lords and rulers and Greasers like refuse? Socs do have cash, however that does not imply that Greasers ought to be given more terrible disciplines than Socs.
This helps us see that Chillingworth truly was a good man who cared for pearl. He by no means had to give Pearl anything in his will. In fact, it would only be logical if he despised pearl, being she was the living evidence of Hester’ betrayal, but instead he showed signs of love for her. Some would argue that Rodger left his worth to pearl because he had no one else to give it to, but I would have to say even if it was because of that reason alone, it could account for Chillingworth’s determination to make Dimmesdale miserable. If you have nothing going on at all in your life you tend to latch onto anything interesting that’s happening and it seems like that’s exactly what happened with Rodger
Falstaff is a character who represents the perspective of those who do not have a side or a reason to fight. Falstaff appears as one who does not care about anything, but truly he is mindful because he knows there is nothing worth for him to care about giving him no purpose to develop any class or respect for others. He represents the lifestyle Hal runs away to and stands as friend and father for Hal. Even in their immature adventures or Hal’s moments of greatness, Falstaff has an underlying lesson towards Hal to not forget what or who truly

While this challenge is meant to shed light on how meager SNAP benefits are, it, much like Dolezal, misses the mark for reality. There is no realistic element to the challenge, no matter how strict one may be in their behavior while undertaking it, because the thought of knowing the challenge is only temporary, coupled by already comfortable lives they enjoy, jobs they work, nice homes these people often live in, means that they have no need to actually worry about feeding themselves or their families. There is always a backup – the challenge is
His character traits make him seem rude to Lennie, but he does it just to keep him in check. At times he can still open up his soft side. Before Lennie gets shot George says, “I never been mad, and that’s the thing I want ya to know.” (106). Even though he did not say much you could get a very big message just from that. He is saying I want you to know that I was not rude just to be mean I was rude so nothing like this happened.
Mark, the father of this child, put together the words, “Fine. Sure.” That proved one thing only, this child didn’t change anything. It didn’t make them fight less, or her basically being a single mother, it didn’t make him drink less, or make him not be a heroin addict. This child was not necessarily planned, but she was loved. He loved Katia while sober, and adored her to pieces.
