When he was two he learned how to roll over, and in the story “The doctor said that with his weak heart this strain would probably kill him, but it didn’t.” Then he eventually learned to crawl backwards, and that was his mode of transportation unless he was being carried or pulled around in his cart. Doodle began to talk soon after and, as described in the book, would not stop talking. Then one day Brother, the narrator, decided to teach him how to walk. And Doodle did learn how to walk, and also skip and run. Doodle was also a skilled at lying which is basically storytelling.
When Finny falls down from the tree apparently purges Gene different feelings and steers their friendship in a different direction so that they start connecting to each other rather than hatred characterizing it. From this point on, he and Finny comes together to depend on each other for psychological support. Gene continues to plays sports because Finny cannot, which allows Finny to train him to be the athlete that Finny himself cannot be Finny tells Gene that he once had aspirations to go to the Olympics, and Gene agrees to train for the 1944 Olympics in his place (chapter 6). When Finny became injured, it triggered this new evolution among them to not hate each other but to start caring. This also change the mood of the story from greed to contentment.
Because of this, he will want to do anything to learn more about them. Linda Sue Park says that whenever Crane-man tells Tree-ear about the story of how he had arrived to live with him, Tree-ear hoped that maybe Crane-man would tell him a little more about his parents. Also, Linda said that Min told Tree-ear that he couldn’t teach Tree-ear how to make pottery because he wasn’t Min’s son. Tree-ear often asks
Proctor chooses the second option as he believes that is right thing to do. We also see him wonder how he would “teach [his three children] to walk like men in the world” if he was a dishonest man who sold his friends (Miller,1272). Proctor is stating that it will be hypocritical to try and teach his kids to be good
Holden is a caring character, as seen through his great liking of Robert Burn’s poem, “Comin thro’ the Rye”. Holden tells Phoebe that he wants to “catch everybody if they start going off the cliff” (173). Holden wants to be a savior of innocence for children, as he wants to protect them from the ugliness of the world. This is exemplified by his anger towards vulgarity written in the school walls. He states that he could imagine how, “…some dirty kid would tell them-all cockeyed, naturally, what it meant, and how they’d all think about it and maybe even worry about it for a couple of days.” (201).
Jones talks briefly about his grade school age son and how he was afraid to climb a tree at school along with his peers. Gerard took things into his own hands reading his son the tales of Tarzan and his exciting life in the jungle, his son then called upon the influence of Tarzan and conquered his fears and climbed the tree along with his friends. I believe Jones added this story of his son to the essay to show some real world proof that violent stories and comics help children to play the role of their favorite character and conquer their fears of social interactions by relating to a situation handled by the courageous character.
He was trying to look for other deductions and other jobs, he actually found another college but one day he was going to the college and his car broke down which led him to miss his classes and the college told him it was better for him to just drop out. He was still searching for other things. He wanted to strive for other things, not letting him learn did not let him down. A quality is determination and ambition mostly, it helps go for the things wanted and to not give up. Determination will not let people give up and keep trying until they get the thing
In the novel, To Kill a MockingBird, Harper Lee illustrates the harsh treatment receive from the townspeople’s when he is order to defend Tom Robinson. When talking to his brother, Jack, Atticus explains that he hopes that his children will not catch Maycomb’s usual disease of racism and prejudice, he hopes his children will come to him. “I just hope that Jem and Scout come to me for their answers, instead of listening to the town.” When Scout asked Atticus if he was really a n***** lover, Atticus responded “I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put, sometimes—baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name.
Holden Caulfield struggles to come to terms with the loss of childhood innocence; however, Holden experiences self-reflection and understands he cannot change everything. Holden possesses a strong inability to accept the loss of childhood innocence. After Phoebe asks what Holden wants to be when he grows up, he explains, “What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff… I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all.” (Salinger, 191) Holden wishes to protect children from “falling off the cliff”, a metaphor for the inevitable transition to adulthood. Like the students and teachers at Pencey, Holden believes that people who mature become phony. Therefore, he would much rather have children stay young and pure for the remainder of their lives, instead of growing up.

Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound. As the story progresses it’s obvious Lev no longer feels the same way, this is shown on page 226 when Shusterman states, “Once he landed in the safe-house network, he quickly made it known that he was not a guy to be trifled with. He didn’t tell them he was a tithe. Instead, he told them his parents signed the order to have him unwound after he was arrested for armed robbery”.
