Making it very clear to him that they are different and, therefore, won’t get along with each other. Being barred from relationships based on differences was the biggest source of frustration for Pip before he received his great expectations. Dickens uses Pip to display how wealth can change someone and make them forget what made them wealthy to begin with. It was Pip’s anger towards the system and determination to change others’ perception of him that got him where he is. Pip tries to ignore this part of his life and isn’t able to see the pain that the convict feels even though he had previously felt the same
Phillips experiences numerous things over the course of the text, Philip's personality is proof that people personality can indeed change. thy dies he has to live in his own and he manages to do so by remembering what to do to go fishing and what to do is if a plane passed by.

Polly’s sensibility is one of her most noticeable traits, Polly does not usually over react to things or spend money foolishly on objects she does not need. After Polly moved to the city and became a music teacher, she saved most of the money she earned and used it to pay for her brother’s education. Although Polly’s family did not have the money to pay for Wills education, Polly had no problem earning the needed money for her brother. Polly can also be very frugal, she makes and mends most of her own clothes rather than buying new ones like most of the other ladies, later she even helps Fanny and Maud make their own dresses, hats, and other garments. Polly does not find mending clothes a chore, she finds the activity rather fun and relaxing.
Through Pip’s journey, Dickens suggests that happiness becomes achievable if one learns to accept and fix their flaws. The key to happiness entails being humble and compassionate rather than caring about appearance and status. That night after Jaggers, a London lawyer, offers Pip to go to London to become a gentleman, Pip struggles to not feel angry when Joe and Biddy show him genuine happiness for this opportunity. “I never could have believed it without experience, but as Joe and Biddy became more at their cheerful ease again, I became quite gloomy. Dissatisfied with my fortune, of course I could not be; but it is possible that I may have been, without quite knowing it, dissatisfied with myself.” (132).
Powell and almost puts a superiorital tone in the atmosphere.Powell kills all individuality by saying ‘’Put them in Ranks.. All wear the same clothes.. cut off their hair so they look the same “ This supports powells philosophy by almost undermining the youngers, I think Powell uses his age as a bargaining tool to almost feel superior to the kids.In contrast, Montessori seems to claim an opposing view, one example being Montessori feels very passionately about teacher intervention, she mentions in the story a teacher needs to about interacting with a student so as “without letting him or her feel her presence.. but may never be an obstacle”. She says this to stress the importance of the balance a teacher must keep between themselves and the student. As stated over and over throughout the text, Powell claims that kids cannot function without structure. In the phrase “He does look good because kids need structure” Powell seems to highlight that a student looks good, only because he has structure, and without it, he would have nothing. In short, Montessori and Powell can have contrasting yet still passionate views towards
Pap is so concerned that Huck was not to be better than himself or other family members, that he forbids Huck from continuing to go to school. On contrast, Jim is very caring toward his own family. He cares for their well being and hopes the best for them. Several times in the novel he was caught weeping as he missed his family. He also is much more caring toward Huck.
He then has to face the fact that Estella does not love him and all the work he has put in to gain her attention, is only now to his advantage. This goes to show that people get so focused on impressing others and fitting in that they forget who they really are and what will result in the best outcome. In the novel, Pip realizes that he ended up alone and that the woman he believed to love never even liked him in return. Basically ended up being a sort of plot twist, where the audience was meant to realize how when they have too much ambition they forget what they had from the start. This lesson demonstrates how no matter what one should focus on the real meanings of life, and not material
Phillip started judging from the beginning of the story. Phillip was raised to believe, whites were superior to black people. It takes Timothy slapping Phillip across the face to get him to realize, It is not your skin color, that defines you, but what is underneath it. “I true don’t know Phill-eep, but I true think beneath d’skin is all d’same”
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.
Taylor shows readers that phillip is brave with the scene where Phillip faces his fears and climbs the palm, “ I mthink it was the fifth afternoon of this week that I blurted out to Timothy ‘ I’ll climb the palm now’,” ( Taylor 98 ).

In conclusion Theodore Taylor’s character Phillip reveals that personal strength comes from overcoming fears and obstacles standing in the way. Theodore Taylor encourages readers to try new things and to never fear the unknown.
