Then, when Mayella is asked if her father has ever mistreated her, she hesitates before answering no. The hesitation was clearly noticeable and had to mean something.
This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen.

Psalm.16:18 tells us “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Johnny should not have gone to the Lytes to claim them as his kin.

Voltaire’s Candide explores many philosophical ideas in its interesting and lengthy text. While there are many concepts and topics Voltaire addresses within this story, a notable topic that is touched upon would be Candide’s decision to leave the land of El Dorado and return to the outside world, ultimately settling down in a Turkish garden.
