Collins. Elizabeth took an opportunity of thanking her. 'It keeps him in good humour,' said she, 'and I am more obliged to you than I can express.' Charlotte assured her friend of her satisfaction in being useful, and that it amply repaid her for the little sacrifice of her time.

Lily’s insecurity is displayed through her actions in school when encountering the more popular girls, “I started picking scabs off my body and, when I didn’t have any, gnawing the flesh around my fingernails until I as a bleeding wreck” (Kidd 9). For instance, Lily’s act of shying away from others and picking at her scabs helped to emphasize her discomfort when people she considered her betters, in style at least, surrounding Lily and reminding her about her own less than satisfactory personal looks. Furthermore, her self-consciousness, along with her inborn daringness led her to run away from home, and take Rosaleen with her.

In Sue Monk Kidd’s book, The Secret Life of Bees, the color blue symbolized the love others felt towards Lily.

When the Ewell’s case is explained to her, she decides to try and keep Burris in school, however when this backfires, resorts to sending him away again, stating “If you don’t go I’ll call the principal...I’ll have to report this anyway.” This shows her lack of understanding of the townspeople, as she still believes that the principal and herself will be able to keep Burris and the other Ewells in school.
