Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595). Doodle is weakened and incapable of doing activities normal kids do at his age. The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.
In chapter seven in the Outsiders Ponyboy talks to Randy about how the Socs and Greasers hate each other and in the end, Ponyboy made Randy feel better of himself.

Randy mentions that the world hates him, but Ponyboy says that he hates the world and he needs to change that. In the talk with Randy Ponyboy says “So it doesn’t do any good, the fighting and the killing. It doesn’t prove anything.” Beforehand Ponyboy talks about how he is sick of fighting and that fighting won’t make anyone win, this is further proven by the fact that nothing changed after the rumble.
Lymon admires Macy’s masculine power, though he is treated cruelly by him: “Every minute he wanted to be following along behind this jailbird, and he was full of silly schemes to attract attention to himself.

Another example of Atticus showing sympathy towards people is a case with Bob Ewell. There was a scene when Bob Ewell made a barbaric attitude by spitting in Atticus’s face, yet Atticus didn’t mind it and just simply walked away. In this scene, Atticus demonstrated a lot strength of restraint and dignity by resisting to retribute for Bob’s action. “Caring people no matter how nasty they are” is the lesson, which he taught to his son. The “mockingbirds” in this book, are innocent people who have a pure heart.
George has caught Lennie with something that he should not have had on multiple occasions. For example, there was once a mouse in his pocket and one time, a puppy with him on his bunk (43). George does a good job of protecting Lennie when needed. For example, George knew Curley’s wife was going to cause trouble, so he warned Lennie to not talk to her (32). The accident involving Curley’s wife was Lennie’s fault for not listening to George and behaving as he did.
Lennie’s kindness affects how people within story treat him. He gains the company of George who looks after him and it makes the ending all the harder to accept. This is because of his kind heart and how he doesn’t mean to do the bad things he does do. The second character trait Lennie possesses is innocence. One way Lennie is described as is innocent.
‘Cause I want you to stay with me. Trouble with mice is you always kill ‘em.” The relationship between father and son is also implied because George looks after Lennie’s basic survival needs and tries to keep him out of trouble.

"to make my compliments to you, my fellow-teachers of the great public, and likewise to say that I am right glad to see that Doctor Holmes is still in his prime and full of generous life" (Twain 3). Finally, I think Mark Twain was not as nice a person as he makes himself out to be in many of his books. He often says very mean things to nice people. As the old saying goes "don 't judge a book by it 's cover" don 't judge Mark by his books do some extra digging. Life was not easy for Twain but that does not change how you are supposed to treat people and be a kind person.
In Of Mice and Men, George is one of the characters who lost hope to his friend Lennie, through the actions/troubles Lennie had made. It is also shown in the book with other character 's actions. George is Lennie 's best friend who lost hope on Lennie because Lennie keep on getting in trouble. Lennie is a big, muscular man, but he is also unintelligent and irresponsible.

“Candy looked unhappily, he said softly. No I couldn’t do that. I had him too long” Candy could not kill his dog, and he was sad when they told him that it was time to shoot your dog, it might be a dog to them but it was more than a dog to him, it was his friend. Candy did not want to feel lonely, he was so used to him (the dog) that if he left, he won’t be able to survive, “Candy threw his legs off the bunk.

She was so innocent and then yous turn up and that oaf killed her. He was the craziest son-of-a-bitch I ev’r seen”. “He ain’t a mean person, he never meant to hurt no one! But that wife of yours. She was jailbait, knew it the first time I saw her.
Sometimes Lennie can get out of hand do things that cause them to move or relocate. George and Lennie relationships stand strong until Lennie gets out of hand and has to be dealt with for the better of their friendship. From “Of mice and men” George and Lennie almost grew up together, George would be out in the field and Lennie would just come outside to help and from there George and Lennie started a friendship. They had a strong enough bond in each other when Lennie’s aunt died, George took him under his wing. George kept him him with him while he worked.
