Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.

James Hurst uses suspense, characterization, and imagery in the “Scarlet Ibis” to convey that pride is a wonderful/terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines life and death.

However, his use of tough love and lack of approval towards his children creates conflict in the play, which suggests the importance of a father’s emotional role in a family. The role as a breadwinner: In Troy’s mind, he has done everything right as a father because he has provided his family with basic needs for survival: a place to live, food on the table, and clothes on their backs. His strong work ethic has made him the man he is today; but he often burns all his fuel at work and, at the expense of his family, copes with his pain by drinking. Sense of pride: As the breadwinner, Troy takes great pride in his earnings. When his oldest son, Lyons, comes around asking for ten dollars, Troy replies by saying,“ ‘I 'm just supposed to haul people 's rubbish and give my money to you cause you too lazy to work?’ ” (1, 19).
Some people think that Brother is a loving brother because he took care of Doodle. Doodle was born physically disabled; Brother knew that his little brother wouldn’t want to be confined, so he carried him around a lot in a cart.

The brother showed more pride for helping Doodle then concern for Doodles health. “Pride is a wonderful,terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death.” (p.419) The quote shows that he did not know the effect of pride till it was to late. “Renaming my brother was perhaps the kindest thing I ever did for him, because his first name only sounds good on a tombstone.” (p.417) The Brother tells you that the pride he had in renaming his brother because no one expected anything from him.
