The oak tree is first to be climbed, and the tree is not going to make it easy. The branches weight her down, so much that “she was almost lost among the dark branches” (Jewett). The “green leaves heavy and wet with dew” become obstacles she must pass through (Jewett). “She crept out along the swaying oak limb at last, and took the daring step across into the old pine-tree” (Jewett). Here is the scary shift to the point of no return.

He looked up the tree, and smiled, and turned around and left.
The first time Sun-jo and Peak met was when Sun-jo was sent to bring Peak to Zopa, a Buddhist monk. Peak was wearing nothing but his boxers when he opened the door, but Sun-jo didn’t care because he understood how exciting it is to try on new climbing gear. This was the first step in their great friendship. Once Sun-jo and Peak were on their way up to base camp Zopa thought it would be better for them to train so he made them walk with heavy packs on their back and climb a wall every time that they stopped. Peak knew this was so he could gain strength, but Zopa didn’t want him to do it alone so Sun-jo was dragged along.
In the “Scarlet Ibis”, the scarlet ibis is a metaphor for Doodle because they both share similar traits and circumstances. When Doodle and his brother first see the bird, it was in a tree with its “long legs... perched precariously. Its wings hung down loosely, and as we watched, a feather dropped away and floated slowly down.” Similar to the bird, Doodle has problems moving his lower body and his legs are awkward until his brother teaches him how to walk. In addition, the bird doesn’t seem to be healthy and normal, just like Doodle.
Sacrifice, care, bravery, courage, etc; but only one of the characters in the novel exhibits all of the above qualities and is a true hero.

Luke said to Billy-bob I can’t believe that actually worked. They made good time going up the mountain when they reached the top Zeus was still wondering where they had gone to. They surprised Zeus as they came up to his palace. He asked them how they got up here, they said they used a special plant that makes them invisible to the gods and went up the back entrance. So Zeus and the other gods banished Billy-bob and Luke to the underworld for coming up to their god world ware no mortal can ever go to.

Coleridge’s frequent use of exclamation marks in the second stanza emphasises how amazed he was by the beauty of Nature. Also, the repetition of ‘wide’ emphasizes the vastness of the forest and the endless wonders that lie within. The use of expansion and contraction shows Coleridge’s change in view about him not being able to go on the trek. His admiration for the lime-tree bower contrasts with his original hatred for being stuck under the tree. With the use of romanticism and different language techniques, Coleridge shows how powerful inner journeys can be and its capability to teach individuals more about the world around
During the meeting, Holden annoys Carl with his fixation on sex. After Luce leaves, Holden gets drunk, awkwardly flirts with several adults, and calls an icy Sally. Exhausted and out of money, Holden wanders over to Central Park to investigate the ducks, breaking Phoebe's record on the way. Nostalgically recalling his experience in elementary school and the unchanging dioramas in the Museum of Natural History that he enjoyed visiting as a child, Holden heads home to see Phoebe. He sneaks into his parents' apartment while they are out, and wakes up Phoebe – the only person with whom he seems to be able to communicate his true feelings.
They sat upon the top branches and continued their conversation of work and recent activities they had engaged in.

Out of fear of being left behind he tried to hurry down the tree a bit faster which caused him to slip.

I know that with our high school football team I don’t want to be remembered as the kid that had it in him, just wouldn’t put in the effort and was focused on the wrong things. Instead, Mariota is the perfect role model for high school athletes because he never stopped his grind, he did what he set out to do and is only getting better. The way I see it is one can do all the talking and get all the attention in the world but if one doesn’t do anything with it then what 's the point? The way I see it is there is always work to be done, just because I might of reached the goals I’m aiming for, doesn’t mean that’s all for me to do, someone else is working for the same goals as me.
Rob Hall had been leading another one of his clients, Doug Hansen, up to the summit of the mountain. Even though the time that Rob had designated as the time to descend passed two hours ago, Rob kept going because he had had to turn Doug around on a previous climb. As they were approaching the summit, Doug was struggling, and as they began to descend, they ran out of oxygen.

Rob could have easily made it down to safety, but Doug couldn’t, and Rob didn’t want to leave his client stranded on the mountain.
