There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed. “The trouble with me was, Jim, I never could believe harm of anybody I loved” (5.1.189). Antonia says this to Jim as they are looking back on their lives as adolescents which proves how she learned from her previous experiences not to instantly be so trusting of everybody she meets. In a more positive sense, Antonia’s optimism enabled her to be accepting of what she had, and never wish for more. Unlike her acquisitive mother, Antonia was always content with her life on the farm and never felt it necessary to beg and want what other people have.
