However, he also loves him. Doodle cannot walk, but the narrator teaches him, and goes further into the “net of expectation” and pushes his brother too far.
David’s caring nature is shown throughout the story, even when he was not fighting for him and his telepaths. When Sophie injures her foot, David stays with her and tries his best to attend to her needs since she is immobile. We can see that David cannot leave someone behind even if they are a person who he just encountered. We can expect David in any case to aid a stranger even though the damage may be miniscule. When David is escaping with Petra and Rosalind,
John Hale known as the witch hunter in Salem inspires fear when his name is spoken ,instead John Hale was a good person because he didn’t really want to kill anyone ,just wanted to save them before they fully went to the Devils side and sign his book ,and he did whatever he cool to help save the accused.

Sixth, McMurphy lacks remorse; for example, he does not care if it disturbs the other patients' schedule because he wanted to watch the world series. He was always rationalizing when he mistreats or hurts someone; for example, when he raped the girl apparently, she wanted it (American Psychiatric Association 659). The Patient’s Bill of Rights under Wyatt v. Stickney, the following patients’ rights were violated in the movie.
The book I’ve been reading is A Child Called “It,” by Dave Pelzer. Now that I’m further in this story, that’s based on a true story, it gives more detail what Dave was put through and it makes me sad just reading it. Words can’t describe the times he was put through and he will always have those horrid memories. Nothing will change the way he will think about his father and mother, neither of them cared for him, even though his father acted like he did. But he managed never to do anything about what was happening to his son.
Finally, Liesel and Rudy were able to fully trust each other with their darkest secrets. For example, Rudy tells Liesel about when the doctor inspected him and some other boys. That is a moment of importance because he was genuinely embarrassed, and at first didn 't tell her. However, later he feels comfortable to tell Liesel. " Stripped of their, the boys were allowed to dress again."(414)
As once he was a immature selfish man he’s able to transform into a decent and more morally sound one. In the beginning of the play, John seems to only look out for number one, himself; he gives into times of temptation with Abigail and does not pity his wife and mother of his children when the affair is brought to light. In contrast, when he hangs, he does so for the sake of Elizabeth and his children. When speaking of his family, Proctor says, “I blacken all of them when this is nailed to the church the very day they hang for silence” (143).
Some of the main characters learned and demonstrated empathy, such as Atticus, Jem, the narrator’s brother, and Scout, the narrator. For instance, when Atticus is given Tom Robinson’s case by the court many of those the family once considered close turned their backs on the. One of these instances was at the jailhouse, after this situation Atticus thanked his children for making “Walter Cunningham stand in” his “shoes for a minute…” This demonstration of empathy could have, and most likely did, save Atticus’ life in the novel. Tom Robinson was also attempting to teach those in the jury and court empathy.
Equality always knew he was an unusual and odd boy to begin with. He wasn’t ever so fond of the idea of breaking rules. While he is writing in his diary he said to be forgiven for breaking the law. “And we know there is no transgression blacker than to do or think alone” (1; ch.1). The reader suspects that Equality writing in his diary is his very first time breaking a rule.
The soft objects are calming until it triggers him like Curley’s wife did. She started panicking so Lennie started panicking, and that is what lead to him covering her mouth and nose to make her be quiet. Also in the text it states, “You gonna get me in trouble jus’ like George said you would” (Steineck 45). In this part of the text it shows that Lennie was blaming his killing of Curley’s wife on her. In this text it is obvious that George influenced Lennie’s
He grew up being unkind and thinking that he could get away with anything he did especially when it was announced that he would be becoming a police officer and had been accepted into the academy. But with the arrival of Erin brought a small change to him, as she was willing to stick her neck out for Ned and stand up for him. This ended making him more conniving, no longer willing to stick with his chant of “Neddy, Neddy, never ready; ain’t got nothing in his heady.” (p. 3) but rather resorting to labelling Ned “‘DISTURBED & DANGEROUS’” (p. 155).
Both authors become influenced by unknown individuals who plant a seed of curiosity. Before Gopnik met “Mr. Ravioli” and de Botton met De Maistre, neither of them ever wonder why the world was they way it was or why the people around them acted the way they did. Gopnik was first introduced to his daughter 's imaginary friend when he heard her complain about him, “the most peculiar local thing about Olivia’s imaginary playmate is this: he is always too busy to play with her...” (153). An imaginary “playmate” as the name says it itself, it 's supposed to play with the children and accompany them when they feel alone. Yet, Mr. Ravioli had none of those characteristics, instead he has some local characteristics.
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.
He didn’t go to high school or college his dad needed his help with stuff so he pulled him out of elementary. He was already smart and knew how to read & write. His brother miss treated him.

The final family relationship that Troy is involved in is between himself and his brother, Gabriel. This relationship is a simple one due to the brain damage Gabriel suffered during World War II. This bad relationship is because of Troy 's inappropriate use of the money that Gabriel has been compensated by the United States government. Troy gains control of Gabriel 's money and has Gabriel permanently put away in an institute due to his mental health problems. Although we do learn that Troy accidentally signed the papers to lock Gabriel away because of his inability to read, we know that he never took initiative to free Gabriel.
