There is no doubt that Tom and Jose are both determined, but for slightly different reasons. Jose is determined to make money for himself and his family by hard labor and Tom is determined to buy his freedom by manipulation and persuading words. As these quotes state, “He began to think of the fun he had planned for this day, and his sorrows multiplied. Soon the free boys would come tripping along on all sorts of delicious expeditions, and they would make a world of fun of him for having to work—the very thought of it burnt him like fire. He got out his worldly wealth and examined it—bits of toys, marbles, and trash; enough to buy an exchange of WORK, maybe, but not half enough to buy so much as half an hour of pure freedom.

Also, if the water becomes too polluted, then there would be no fish to catch. One stereotype that has the most truth to it is that fisherman lie, but mostly only about the size and how the fish was caught. Everyone lies, and fisherman are no exception to this. Afterall, fisherman only do it to spice up the story because who likes a boring story, and it wouldn’t be a fishing story if the size of the fish wasn’t exaggerated. Every group has its bad batch of people that make the rest of the group look bad as a whole, and the fisherman group is no exception to this truth.
Just took ‘em, I know where he keeps everything… I don’t expect ever to have that much money all at once” (Bristow 163) and ultimately save Jimmy’s life where he could have been furious with Darren for taking his money especially during a time of crisis but instead he generously puts Jimmy’s needs above his own. Also, when Darren’s character is first described it is said “Since he wrote a good hand, his cousin Godfrey had given him a job keeping records” (Bristow 10) Since Darren’s mother and father died and left no money for him Godfrey had taken him under his wing and provided Darren a job with good pay so he can live a normal life.
The last trait that describe Parris is greedy. He proves himself to be greedy when he says”I regard that six pound, Mr. Proctor I am paid little enough without I spend six pound on firewood. ”(Miller, 180). He is being greedy in this line because he gets more then other people in salem and yet he is mad because he thinks minister should get paid way more then a farmer.
In the short story "The Monkey's Paw", Mr. White, Mrs. White, and Herbert were all affected by the emotion greed. In the beginning, Herbert was a selfless boy that worked to support his parents. After the heard about the monkey paw, however, he turns into more of a wealth loving character. He finds out about the wishes and almost immediately starts talking about being "rich and famous and happy", he also told his father to wish to be emperor. This, in my opinion, is a bit greedy.
Well, aside from being a clone, Matt is an ordinary guy. Matt struggles with a lot of things like bullies, prejudice, making friends, love, growing older, and making important decisions for himself, just like you and I. Maybe what makes Matt so related is that he always tries to do the right thing no matter what. For example; his friendship with his new friend Fidelito. When Matt finds out that the orphan boys are given food in only proportion to how much work they got done that day, Matt sees this as extremely unfair and steps in.
As a result of this, more people died and were injured and those who did make it to the lifeboats had to paddle for an extremely long time without food, water, or a heat source other than themselves and the people around them. The massive amount of deaths is a result of there not being enough lifeboats which almost definitely taught shipbuilders to include these life saving vessels on their next construction
For example, Tim idolizes his brother but also wants to be better than him, as said in the quote, “I remember being little and watching Sam milk Old Pru and admiring him and thinking how clever he was. And then it got to be my turn to learn how… and I found out that there wasn't any glory to it; it was just hard work and made your hands ache… But still, I envied Sam, and I wished I were old enough to do something glorious, too.” Collier and Collier 64.
One of the last, and most prominent, reasons as to why these men died in the sea was the fact that investigation did not occur earlier. These men were unsure if their SOS had gotten through but they were sure that someone would notice the lack of the USS Indianapolis in port. The men knew that at least someone would get suspicious of the large ships tardiness, but there was a lack of urgency and investigation early enough to save more than 317 people. The late action and lack of urgency to find these men after they did not show to port is what caused to many to die such awful deaths as shark attacks, dehydration, blood poisoning, and even murder.
Success transpires in many different ways, but when it comes to materialistic goals, one almost always has to pay a high moral price and sacrifice personal relationships.

“There is a plan and a purpose, a value to every life,no matter what location, age, gender or disability.”~ Sharron Angle As Simon once said in Simon Birch, I believe I have a destiny I know i wasn't born small without doing something great with my disability. He expressed that he knew he was meant to do something even if he didn't quite know what. In the Scarlet Ibis Doodle and his brother were determined to teach Doodle to walk, to fit in even though there was a great chance he couldn't, his big brother pushed him until he accomplished it.
In “The Scarlet Ibis,” by James Hurst, Doodle is sensitive and is a static character. A scene in the story that shows this character trait is when the doctor was telling them of what he can and can’t do in order for him to stay healthy. “He mustn't get too excited, too hot, too cold, or too tired and that he must always be treated gently.” This reminds me of an elderly person and how sensitive their bodies are. This event is a good example because it shows that Doodle is fragile.
Keep the Darkness Inside In the short story “The Scarlet Ibis”, the author James Hurst suggests to never let darkness take over, through the use of indirect characterization. William Armstrong, or Doodle, is born crippled and he can't do things that normal people could do. His older brother is ashamed of that, and sets out to teach Doodle how to walk. It takes a lot of hard work and effort.
