Once the boy grew out of the needing to be nurtured by the tree and stopped visiting her she still waited for the boy to come to see her because she had never moved on. For example, “And the boy grew older. And the tree was often alone. Then one day the boy came to the tree and the tree said, "Come, Boy, come and climb up my trunk and swing from my branches and eat apples and play in my shade and be happy." "I am too big to climb and play" said the boy.” This example shows how the tree never realized that the boy would grow and drift away but she continuously loved the boy.
Eleni Clermont H English I 9/30/17 Review and Assess Questions I do not blame the narrator for Doodle’s death. I believe the narrator was just trying to help Doodle into becoming a person that wouldn’t be made fun of when he started school. He truly believed that Doodle would come over the hill, through the rain, back to the narrator, but when Doodle didn’t come up the narrator went looking and discovered his body. 4. (a) The narrator was wanted to teach Doodle how to run, to swim, to climb trees, and to fight next.
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. One example of when Brother was caring was when he figured out that Doodle would be with him forever by saying “I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp” (Hurst 556). He showed Doodle his favorite spot enabling Doodle to experience more of life like sitting in the grass, and that way he wouldn’t have to be pulled around all day. When Doodle was five years old, Brother decided that he was going to teach his brother how to walk.
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. This is important because it Doodle’s disability is a major part of the story.

He was embarrassed to be seen with him, but then he thought that for his own sake he should “help” Doodle. He taught him to walk and surprised their parents one morning by showing them, it was all for Brothers image though, so he would no longer have to face the shame of having to drag his little 6-year-old brother every where he went. They heard a bird on that day, a Scarlet Ibis, and it had fallen
This can be supported when the boy was just a kid he and the tree were always happy and they both just appreciated each other’s company. However, as the boy grew up he started to appreciate the tree less and less and eventually just using her and taking anything that he wanted. Although, the tree did it just so they could both be happy, just like when the boy was young. Eventually, the boy got old and came to the tree and he didn’t want to play with anything he just wanted to rest. This made the tree happy, because this is one of the things that she could do to make him happy so she let him sit on her stump and they were both happy.
However almost everyday Jem finds toys or random objects in the tree out front of the Radleys house. This gives Jem the idea that Boo isn 't some horrible monster after all. “Atticus believes Jem killed Ewell in self-defense, but Tate makes him realize that Boo Radley actually stabbed Ewell and saved both children 's lives.”(lee 28) This quote shows that the children had been put in a situation where the so-called “monster” Boo Radley saved their lives and they now could look at him not as some maniac but a hero and regular person who stays inside to protect himself from the stereotypes and cruelty of the world because of something people had said and that had been spread throughout the
Despite, the contrast of social hierarchy, Amir and Hassan are best friends. Amir goes to school while Hassan does chores and when Amir comes back from school, they hang out and climbed a pomegranate tree, eat fruits and Amir would read to Hassan (27). But, the part that struck me as important was that Amir took one Ali’s kitchen knives and went to the pomegranate tree and carved “Amir & Hassan, the sultans of Kabul” (27). A Sultan is a ruler of a state or country. Amir reveals his true affection for Hassan in this act because by carving in that statement, he believes in his heart they would both become affluent, revered and together in ruling in the future or at least in his imagination despite of Hassan’s social status.
To choose others before yourself requires generosity and true kindness which doesn’t seem very common anymore. Throughout the play “A Raisin in the Sun”, Lorraine Hansberry developed the theme of putting others before yourself through the financial welfare of the household, supporting extracurricular activities, and the responsibilities of being a parent. Even as the Younger family was poor and had no extra money to spend, they always found a way to make everything turn out okay. As Travis wanted extra money to spend, Walter tried to hide the reality of their situation as Ruth told Travis no, “cause we don’t have it” and Walter replies, “What you tell the boy things like that for? Here son-” (Hansberry 12).
Showed them how he fished. His dad was pretty amazed at how his son managed to survive in a terrain so inhospitable. His mom was kinda like that is cool but I do not care all I care about is that you are safe and sound now. Brian also tells his parents that he also trained a falcon to hunt small game for him like rabbits. I thought this kid was pretty creative with his situation and how he was smart enough to look for shelter first then build a fire and to only
He even stole money from his wife’s pay check and from his children’s saving fund. Despite his actions when he is drunk, he is a positive influence as he teaches his children how to be independent and strong. When he and his family were in the desert during Christmas, he knew that he could not provide for his children like others could, but his love for them was strong that he let them choose a star from the sky to claim. He taught them science, math, astronomy and even Morse code at such an early age
Throughout the school year, Melinda’s tree goes through phases that reflect her emotions at the time. In the beginning of the story, Melinda thinks the project is too easy at first, thinking to herself, “How hard can it be to put a tree on a piece of paper?” (Anderson 32). However as Melinda tries to draw her tree, the more she begins to realize that she can’t. Similar to how she struggles with finding her voice, Melinda also has trouble drawing her tree. The tree acts as a symbol of growth and strength, something that Melinda tries to find in her life after her rape.
Smoke rose from the cancer stick, Yoongi put it between his lips and inhaled he smoke deep into his throat and lungs.

The phrase "Actions speak louder than words."
