This pushback is shown by multiple instances in which Jem and Scout are made fun of for their father is a “n****r lover”. Secondly, Atticus knows he is going to lose the case for he knows that the moral character of Maycomb is not high enough to be able to see true innocence on account of evidence. This realization did not deter him, for he believed that “the one place a man should get a square deal is in a courtroom” (295). Thus he delivered on behalf of his morals and completed the case. This again shows moral courage, for Atticus knew that he if he forfeited his defense of Tom Robinson the ridicule would stop.
What furthers the success of his fulfilling of a father is the way he words this principle; Atticus knows that if he uses words or sentences which are too complicated, Scout will not understand, therefore, will not be able to live by this principal. Using phrases such as shows us that Atticus takes into account his children’s attitudes and learning capability solely to pass on morals. Furthermore, throughout the course of the novel, as the reader familiarize themselves with Atticus and his children’s bond, we learn

Rick Godwin once said, “One reason people resist change is because they focus on what they have to give up, instead of what they have to gain”. In the novel “Things Fall Apart”, by Chinua Achebe Okonkwo resists changes when the british missionaries arrive and it causes conflicts throughout the novel. His defiance, warrior-like, manliness behavior leads him to his suicide when he realizes change sometimes can not be controlled. Okonkwo’s nobility and prosperity is revealed through his success and leadership within the clan. Aristotle stated in “On Tragedy” that “He must be one who is highly renowned and prosperous.”.In “Things Fall Apart” Achebe gives background information on Okonkwo saying “He was a wealthy farmer and had two barns full of yams, and had just married his third wife.” (5).
Amir uses Hassan to get Baba’s attention in a way. Amir is so caught up on getting his father’s approval that he doesn't worry about his morals or essence as much anymore.

But his oldest son wants to fight for his country’s freedom, whereas Benjamin Martin wants nothing more than peace. This gives us a good understanding of how bad Benjamin Martin wants his children to be safe and sound, and that can be seen by his concerned facial expression. We can see that when they have the following conversation. “I forbid you to go” BM “I’m not a child” GM “You are my child” BM (0:31-0:35). It can be argued who the real patriot is, it could be Gabriel Martin since he is the type of guy who would risk it all to fight for his country’s freedom, even if it means that he needs to leave his family behind, while Benjamin Martin doesn’t really care for the country’s safety, but more for his family’s wellbeing.

When questioning the reasons behind why a filial son conceals his father’s wrongdoing, I argue that the son’s actions does not necessarily lie in moral uprightness but in fact can be reasoned within basic human nature. It is not surprising that a son would shelter his father. Many would act in a comparable way. It is natural for people to give preferential treatment to those within the family. That we allow particular connections with family members to structure our perception of right or wrong and to sway our actions as compared to non-kin is deeply ingrained in our
He believes he is “..see[ing] life like it is” (141) in order to rightfully take his place as the head of the family by making this decision for them, regardless of the hope this house brought them all. The rest of the Younger family is disconcerted by this new business deal, and asks Walter if this is what he truly wants and believes is right, to which he responds that he’s “Going to feel fine…[like] a man…” (144).

Her answer is "My ideal man is my total opposite. For me, it would be balanced. A man that would make me feel insecure for myself so that I could change and be better for him. A man that is focused on his goal in life.

Osewoudt’s reasons for killing are not heroic reasons, just a reason for him to continue living and to serve a purpose. “Dorbeck has made a new man of me, he thought”(97). Osewoudt wanted a meaning to his life and he believed his actions portrayed him as a soldier fighting for the right cause… “I had no skilled, no ambition. “It wasn’t until I met Dorbeck that I felt I wanted something “(204). Osewoudt’s uncle called him a coward because he believed it was his responsibility to protect his wife and mother, and instead, he just selfishly decided to look after himself(112).

He knows before he begins that he 's going to lose this case, but that doesn 't stop him from giving Tom the strongest defense he possibly can.” Mr. Finch willingly gives his best to help a one sided case. He knows he will lose, but he tries his hardest and does the right thing. This shows that Atticus Finch is a symbol of justice and
He explains that although he shouldn’t be defending him, he does it for Scout and Jem. His main reason to defend him is because he wants to prove his role as a lawyer and as a father. He says, “I could never ask you to mind me again” (Lee 100) to Scout because if he doesn’t stay loyal and respectful as a lawyer, he can’t display a good role model for her and Jem. Atticus is a honorable lawyer and father who stays true to his duties no matter what they are. Mrs. Dubose presents bravery for living through a disease.
