A gang of greasers will help out another greaser gang should the need arise. Also, “‘Come on, Johnny, we’re running away.’ Johnny asked no questions.” (51) Ponyboy and Johnny are so close that when Ponyboy asked Johnny to run away with him, Johnny said yes.

Even though at the time such action was a crime, she had her own viable reasons to do so. As Nora has said, she did it for her husband, and not only for his health but also his pride. Torvald is a very prideful man who has always been the major financial contributor of the family, and as he became ill, he was no longer to support the family as before. Under the circumstances, borrowing money from someone else to cure his illness would be a harm toward Torvald’s personal pride, as he would never allow his family to be in debt, let alone having his wife to leave the comfortable household to work in order to pay for him. Therefore Torvald’s pride left Nora with no choice but to borrow from Krogstad and

Analysis of Piggy in Lord of the Flies Though physically vulnerable and socially inept, Piggy stands as the voice of reason and is the last sense of rationality and innocence among the boys. Though Piggy shows signs of low self esteem and is frequently made fun of, he is intelligent and good natured. Though he acts as Ralph’s advisor and is the most intelligent of the boys, he is often overlooked and his comments are often disregarded. Piggy represents intelligence and civilization, but also is a symbol of reason and innocence. Piggy may well be one of the most important people among the island, but is suppressed by the others, who never realize what great significance he has.

Fourthly, Mr. B confessed that he paid out of pocket for his father’s previous fender benders rather than contacting the insurance company for fear of legal repercussions. This piece of evidence is key because it shows guilt and that he knows that allowing his father to drive is wrong. Fifthly, Mr. B does not deny or argue with Dr. Y’s concerns, he simply yells and tells the doctor that his family was none od her business. Finally, Mr. B agreed to take steps to prevent his father from driving, but failed to stay true to his word when his father got into yet another accident. The difference with this particular accident was that it obviously was damaging enough to be published in a newspaper.
Him not knowing this allows him to believe that this is God’s unfairness to him. Surviving on his own seems to be a big relief considering he doesn’t has to look after his father and he gets to keep his own rations for himself and not share with his father.

Light is needed when lost in the darkness of night. One that doesn’t have “light” can get lost and never find themselves a right path which can lead to more troubles than what should have
