George does make mistakes concerning Lennie throughout the whole book, but he also attempts to fix his mistakes with acts of kindness. He is a relatable character in many ways, which makes him interesting to read about.

George and Lennie are the most like brothers that two men can be without actually being brothers. They care for each other, argue over the simplest things, and are usually willing to admit that they need each other.
In contrast, Lennie is physically larger and stronger than George, but is not too bright and needs guidance. George and Lennie often find themselves without work because of Lennie’s mental disability and likeliness to destroy things. Even though Lennie makes George’s life more difficult, he continues to support Lennie because he is a true friend.

The relationship between father and son is one that is both sacred, yet complex as each side of the relationship faces hardships. This relationship between a son and his role model, a father and his child, is one, has its ups, but one must also know it has downs. In Theodore Roethke’s “My Papa’s Waltz,” Roethke’s use of ambiguity through diction allows room for the audience to interpret the text in a positive or a negative way, representing the relationship between a father and a son, which on the outside can be interpreted in an either positive or a negative way. Roethke’s use of diction creates an element of confusion for the audience of his poem. Words with a positive connotation allow the reader to see the positive relationships, although
Gifted in wit, manipulation, and powers of diversion, both Menenius and Mercutio were characters that worked more or less behind the scenes, shrouded in the shadows of their stories’ heroes and left to scheme without interference. For Romeo, Mercutio is a friend, advisor (though his advice is occasionally unscrupulous, at best), and protector, who cares dearly about Romeo and his wellbeing. Mercutio makes it his ultimate goal to keep Romeo “on track”; however, what Romeo sees as his path in life is a very different one than Mercutio sees for him. Romeo has a tendency to walk with his head in the clouds, dreaming of romance and peace, falling in love left and right, paying no attention to the harsh reality he lives in. Mercutio wants to make sure Romeo stays rooted to the ground, so he doesn’t fly off completely and leave Mercutio behind.
Although Jefferson loses the most important things that make him a man, with effort, affection, teachings and love he regains the things that were once stripped away from him.

It has been so common to give up when things are difficult, but in the end you actually identify yourself as being a helper or the person accepting help to become a
It'll help." (28.4-28.7) Being a good person cannot prevent you from making bad decisions. Will is virtuous throughout the whole novel, and even though he is tempted by impure desires, he stays virtuous. Being a good person isn’t easy and there will always be times that there will be temptation; what matters is whether you let the temptations control you. Through Will in particular, Bradbury makes it possible for any reader to personally connect with this piece because everyone has faced an “evil”
Although they both are very friendly and caring people, Mercutio and Romeo differ in their feelings about love and how serious they take life. Throughout the whole play both Romeo and Mercutio were there for each other when in need of a friend or even just some comforting words. Mercutio always seems to say the right things to put Romeo back on track and in focus. While Romeo was relentlessly weeping over his unrequited love for Rosaline, Mercutio, with his wise and caring words said, “‘Why is not this not better than groaning for love? Now art thou sociable.
The hardships in that case would be their fights, disagreements, and misconceptions. Most of the time, to experience a journey, you have to experience two opposite feelings. You can’t have a journey only filled with joy, but with sorrow too. A hero is a selfless person who cares about the greater good. Heroes are usually brave, strong, determined, and courteous of other
