The brother showed more pride for helping Doodle then concern for Doodles health. “Pride is a wonderful,terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death.” (p.419) The quote shows that he did not know the effect of pride till it was to late. “Renaming my brother was perhaps the kindest thing I ever did for him, because his first name only sounds good on a tombstone.” (p.417) The Brother tells you that the pride he had in renaming his brother because no one expected anything from him. This is another reason why his brother caused his death by having little concern for what he done and he left Doodle in the rain. The narrator from "The Scarlet Ibis", causes Doodles death because he left him off in the rain.
“The Scarlet Ibis” showed more of the terrible side, although there was a wonderful side too. On the one hand brother pushed Doodle too hard and that lead to the terrible side of pride. Brother never cared for Doodle. He wanted Doodle to be a normal kid before going to school. Also the short story had a wonderful side.
The Swinging Friar should probably be in the Mascot Hall of Fame because he has an amazing and catchy design that makes him a jolly and funny character, he has an amazing impact on the sport of baseball, and is active in the San Diego community. People may think that the Swinging Friar doesn’t have that big of an impact on the sport as the Padres have only gone to the playoffs 8 times since 1958. However, he is featured on a logo of the Padres and has been vital for the team’s success since he debuted in 1958 and he also cheers on all of the Padres games. This has greatly helped San Diego in many ways as he has pumped some of the greatest fans in the world through the Padres’ losing seasons. He has also impacted upcoming stars in the minor
James Hurst uses suspense, characterization, and imagery in the “Scarlet Ibis” to convey that pride is a wonderful/terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines life and death. The author uses suspense to convey the message that the reader is thinking about what will happen to doodle. This is seen when doodle said “brother brother don’t leave me” (441). This example states that doodle does not like being alone. This helps convey the theme by stating that doodle has been the center of attention since he was born so he is used to everybody being around him and making him feel loved by his parents.

Sodapop is a fun-loving, carefree high-school dropout, but he is understanding and shows love to both of his brothers by seeing both sides of an argument. Darry has an extremely serious personality and loves Ponyboy with tough love. All three show love in different ways, but they still do love. Love is shown throughout all of the book The Outsiders in various ways, even though there is lots of violence. Dally and Johnny had a very close bond.
Ponyboy was so happy to see them and now he really wanted to cry, but being a Greaser, he couldn’t. “I leaped up and ran for the door, but it was already open and Soda...bear hug…(P. 97)” “ Then I saw Darry. He swallowed and said…’Ponyboy…’(P. 97)” “Please, no, I thought. Please, not ‘ if ‘(P. 102)” To have good friends you have to be a good friend, to be a good friend you need to be kind and helpful and always supportive. If you stay strong, be yourself and just keep going in life, the outcome will teach you a great lesson.
Even trough thus far the brother has been selfish about his beliefs he is not all bad. Both the brother and Doodle go down to the swamp and play around. To me even trough the brother is gaining from it, i believe that Doodle is gaining even more. The brothers plan to teach Doodle how to climb, swim, fight, and run before the start of school is bittersweet. Having Doodle learn how to do all of those things would be great for Doodle since I doubt that Doodle likes being crippled.
In ”Shame” Dick Gregory discusses the difficulty he was having in school when he was a teeenager just because he was poor kid who didn’t have much and he didn’t get the same value as the other kids in the classroom.

Finally, It took him twenty-nine years to forget about her crush and that is when he get married and making money so, that show me he was still being hurt from his past and everything that he do was connected with Helene Tucker. In this essay I will talk about Gregory past he was he was seven years old and why he took him twenty- nine years to forget about this girl.
To start off, there are many instances of greasers stereotyping Socs, but here are just a few examples. First, when Ponyboy was looking through Sodapop’s yearbook he stumbled upon a picture of Bob and thought to himself, “What was he like? I knew he liked to pick fights, had the usual Soc belief that living on the West Side made you Mr. Super-Tuff, looked good in dark wine-colored sweaters, and was proud of his rings. But what about the Bob Sheldon that Cherry Valance knew?” (162). In this instance, Ponyboy realizes that he had stereotypes Bob as just a “typical” Soc, mean and tuff without realizing that he was a just a boy too, just like him,
At this moment is when Brother decides to train Doodle to be what he portrays as a "normal human being" Eventually, at six years of age, Doodle learns to walk with help from Brother. Encouraged by his brother the narrator decides to teach Doodle how to run, climb vines, swim, and going as far as teaching doodle how to fight, therefor he will prepared for school. However, almost a year after the plan was made, unfortunately Doodle was far from accomplishing the goals by the nearing deadline. As the story goes on there are more twists here and there. I believe that the story is described "in symbolism."
He even stole money from his wife’s pay check and from his children’s saving fund. Despite his actions when he is drunk, he is a positive influence as he teaches his children how to be independent and strong. When he and his family were in the desert during Christmas, he knew that he could not provide for his children like others could, but his love for them was strong that he let them choose a star from the sky to claim. He taught them science, math, astronomy and even Morse code at such an early age
He was rounding home plate, the small crowd was going wild. The Lombardi 's Pizza little league team had just won their first game; my mother was ecstatic, my father was underwhelmed per usual. I wasn’t aware of either of those facts though, because I had been sitting behind the dugout reading to all of my friend’s little siblings “Boo to You, Winnie the Pooh”. Most 9 year old boys ignored the bored younger siblings that were forced to be present at the team’s games - but I wanted them to be happy, and in turn I knew I would be happy. I’ve always loved people, my earliest memory is from when I was 5 years old and noticed a woman with twins.
One person I wish I could see again is my pawpaw. My pawpaw lived in Greenville, MS and worked at the Delta Regional Medical Center. when he is around his grandchildren he acted like a big child. He was one of the best checkers in the world and he loved to play old-school games like Pacman and Mario. Everytime we went to visit, he would always have some new jokes that would have me and my brothers laughing so hard we would cry.
