At the beginning of the novel, Stanley is a unlucky, overweight teenage with no friends who needs to stick up for himself, when bullied barbarously by Derrick Dune, who throws his books down the toilet ; even though he is a really big kid for his age. The quote that supports my point is "Back at school, a bully named Derrick Dune used to torment Stanley. The teachers never took Stanley 's complaints seriously, because Derrick was so much smaller than Stanley. " The quote emphasizes that Stanley is a
Because his efforts allow him to maintain his place in the cockroach Ryu he grows in confidence, strength and determination.

I put these words into my own life thinking about how I would feel if my best friend went missing and I had no way of getting ahold of them to know if they were okay. It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero. Stanley’s expectations weren’t high considering that Zero had been away for days without food, water, or shelter, but when he overheard the Warden and Mr. Sir over talking about how they were going to delete all of Zero’s files and act like he never existed, he knew he made the right choice. Near the end of the book, my feelings about the lines above were reassured to be true when Stanley was officially released back to his lawyer and before leaving he said, “‘I can’t leave Hector.’” (Sachar 219).
Towards the end of the novel, Stanley becomes more fortunate. Sachar proves this by saying, “After legal fees and taxes, Stanley and Zero each receives less than a million dollars” (Sachar 230). Due to what Sachar provides from the book, readers contain a vivid explanation how Stanley went from a poor boy to more rich. Comparing Stanley to when he first arrives at Camp Green Lake to how Stanley’s strength changes when he hurries out of Camp Green Lake. Sachar shows the reader how much more stronger Stanley is by saying, “He scooped out some dirt and tossed it to the side” (Sachar 219).
In many ways I can describe why I think Odysseus’ journey is more important than reaching his home land. Not only did Odysseus learn that life isn't only about richness and glory, but also that every poor action must have a consequence. At first Odysseus was not grateful with what he had, a ruined lord he was, yet when he at last reached his home, he got happy for all the little things. It took 20 years for odysseus to finally become a great lord, losing his god-like figure.

Grodie lives in the shadow of his deceased older brother (the only person who supported Gordie and his aspirations), he is invisible to his own mother, and his dad is always judging him. Chris is bullied by his brother and beaten by his father. Vern is bullied by his brother and somewhat overlooked by his friends. Teddy’s father is known as crazy by everyone and he is constantly judged by those who know his parents. Through all this, the boys are still able to function as a group of kids who are just looking for a place to fit in with one another.
In his dream his grandfather makes him open up an envelope that has a state seal on it. He reads it out loud and the short message that was engraved in gold said "To Whom It May Concern, Keep This Nigger-Boy Running". In other words, the narrator is always going to be on the run, no matter how hard he tries to fit into the white-world. Although, he received a scholarship afterwards it didn 't mean that he would change the way a white person would view him.
He didn’t fit in the society as well as his brothers, which made him strongly disliked. He stood out in the crowd which showed that he was extremely different and Anthem didn’t like different. One thing that made him stand out was that he was built differently than his brothers. “Ever have the teachers and the Leaders pointed to us and frowned and said ‘There is evil in your bones, Equality 7-2521, for your body has grown beyond the bodies of your brothers.” (Rand 18).
Eric Dickerson in some eyes the greatest of all time,I am here to back that up. The single season rushing record and no one has come close to beating it 2,105 yards that is amazing. A first ballot hall of fame induction,as a rookie almost had 2,000 yards. If that doesn’t say amazing then something is wrong with you.
It’s easy to discount Smith because of his age (35), as many of us did last year, but last year is a perfect example of why you shouldn 't doubt the old vet. Smith is the only receiver to get significant playing time last year and because of that we love where he is being drafted right now. Steve Smith should prove to be a very solid WR3 with WR2 upside. Frank Gore: For reasons unknown to us Gore just wasn 't used like he was in years past.

Chris McCandless is smart from coming from a intelligent home but show is ignorance by leaving and doing what he want to do. Like when he started from El Segundo , CA and wanted to travel to Alaska without money and even his own social security card which was a wild bet for him to make. But for Shaun analysis about how Chris is arrogance and plain crazy i disagree. Because if he want to go struggle and see how it feels to go into the wild i say let him.
On his trip he meets various people who care for him. Often times, these people that Chris builds relationships with, will recommend that he do something before he heads into the wild. However, Chris’ arrogance caused him to leave behind his new friends with ease in order to reach his intended goal.

George cannot keep a job because of Lennie, he cannot let Lennie even talk around anyone because he talks too much about the things that George does not want people to know. When Lennie killed Curley’s wife, George was finally fed up, and so was everyone else. He had reached his breaking point with Lennie, and so had everyone else. Lennie obviously was too mental to know what he was doing just like the time before that when he would not let go of that woman’s dress. Lennie just has no business around anyone, he is too dangerous even though he cannot help it.
