Throughout the journey, they have not formally addressed Odysseus as his official title and in doing so, they show respect and admiration to Odysseus who pulled off yet another feat. Although Odysseus had made rash decisions that brought a fate of suffering upon these men, they praise him, suggesting that they have forgiven him―a sign of trust. Later when the men compare Odysseus to their return to Ithaca, they express their deep devotion for him. Odysseus is the famous face of Ithaca, their king, the closest thing they have of home. The thrill the crew feel when they see Odysseus is of renewed hope of sailing home.
At the beginning of the story, Kino is a kind-hearted man who cares for his family. At the climax of the story, Kino is very greedy, selfish, violent, scared, and he doesn 't seem to care that much about his family. At the end of the story, he realizes his sins and wants to become a good man again. At first Kino hears “…a song now, clear and soft, and if he had been able to speak of it, he would have called it the Song of the Family.” (Steinbeck, 6). Then, he thinks of all the things he can buy with the pearl: “…and the music of the pearl rose like a chorus of trumpets in his ears.” (Steinbeck, 28).

For instance, Fred says, “...the only time I know of, when men and women seem to open their shut-up hearts freely...” Considering this line from scene 2 of Act I, it reveals how optimistic Fred is regardless of the fact that he does not have a great deal of money (earlier mentioned). Additionally, during the time of when Ebenezer and Present see the Cratchit family, Mr. Cratchit announces, “...I should like to drink to the health of the man who employs me and allows me to earn my living and our support and that man is Ebenezer Scrooge…” Bob is thankful for Ebenezer even though he does not get paid well and is treated poorly by him. At the final part of the play, the main character, Scrooge, becomes a more caring, thoughtful person. His actions during the final scenes, such as raising Cratchit's salary, concerned about their family’s financial problems during his visit to Cratchit’s home with Christmas Present, is also another example; “A merrier Christmas, Bob, my good fellow! than many a year.
Greg smiled at the thought of listening to a lecture when he came home. He decided to keep this experience and life lesson to himself.

I gotta tell upi again, do i? Jesus Christ, you’are a crazy bastard!”(Steinbeck, Pg 4) so this scene shows what problem do Lennie has and what is the role of George, who is Lennie’s best friend. “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn 't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?” (A.A.Milne). The conversation between Lennie and George is extreamly short and simple, so even though George is living hard life with Lennie in Great depression, perhaps he has fun to talk with his best
Although he is organized and meticulous he also tends to be naive at times with his foolish friend Patrick Star who isn’t as bright. When he is with his best friend Patrick there is no telling what mischief they will get into and their stern neighbor Squidward Tentacles must endure it all if it isn’t someone else. SpongeBob loves to help his friends, go jelly fishing and do karate in his free time when he is not helping someone in need whether it’s a stranger or his friends. I chose SpongeBob as a character because he is a good-hearted person no matter the situation or person and is a ray of positivity. 2.
Additionally Huck recollects how Jim calls him “honey, and pet [him]” (pg 194) as a way of comforting him. Essentially, Huck is missing his companion because of all the memorable times they have together. The flashbacks evoke Huck’s vulnerability because he is left to determine whether he should turn Jim to Miss Watson. Although he cannot seem to do this because Jim gives him comfort and friendship. The stereotypes of men include that they need to be level-headed and strong in order to be seen as manly.
For a moment Elie begins to understand the merit of this argument and when a guard advises him to keep his father’s rations for himself, he agrees thinking, “he was right. I though deep down, not daring to admit it to myself. Too late to save your old father…”(111).

I ran to get some soup and brought it to my father”(111).
