She was a selfless human being who sacrificed her life for all her children. She had a fighting spirit that is unmatched. As a wife, she was very submissive to her husband as Christ requires it, no matter the consequences. Mom was the epitome of humility, kindness, love, compassion, gentleness and had a great sense of humour and an infectious smile. She was very jovial and extremely multi talented.
In this scene, Anne took time out of her journaling and studying to make presents for every single person living in the annex. She did it out of purely good intentions, and worked as hard as she could to bring her living-mates happiness. As you can see, Anne Frank is a breed of her own, with her never-ceasing joy and her constant attempts to make others happy. No one can deny that, at times, she was misleaded, but out of the kindness of her heart, she would do anything for others. Anne’s generosity is beyond compare, and had this been the journal of any other person, one can doubt that it would include such an abundance of
Another reason why Lani is my role model is her personality. I love Lani’s personality, she is always herself and never cares what anyone else thinks of her. She is such a kind and caring person. I can tell her anything and she will always be there for me. She gives me rides everywhere, and we have the best conversations during those rides or we blast the music and sing along with all smiles.
This visitation had intensified the already vivid memories of his childhood. Lena’s visit had brought along an aura of warm and friendship with her. Lena’s visit had brought along a surge of flashbacks as Jim had stated he could plainly hear the laughs of the Danish and Bohemian girls. However, Lena eventually has to leave and Jim’s best days fled with her. Though everyone goes through a cycle of some sort throughout their life the one I have witnessed while reading My Antonia is to an extent is very different.
The goddess Hestia thrived in this land. Hestia being the goddess of the hearth, home, family, and domesticity found great joy in being with people who value their family and friends over nationality. No god, goddesses, or human can deny Hestia’s kindness and peaceful nature. She is beloved and respected by all the gods. Unfortunately, the powerful rulers of Thebes and Athens hatred grew for one another.
She attempted to break free from the feminine restraints of society but fails at it. John Steinbeck 's “The Chrysanthemum” embodies how women are restricted and placed in subordinate roles in society. When compared to Allen 's, Elisa’s role in society is much more insignificant. Elisa’s job is to tend her garden and to care for her husband. A

The only thing he really does is watch the news” (Wiles 287). This action/dialogue effects the main character because: Franny feels helpless to see her brother behave in such a lifeless manner, all over again. She is no longer the smart, creative older sister she thought she was earlier, and feels horrible watching Drew suffer silently. Franny wants to do something, but can not, and it is killing her. This action or dialogue moves the plot because: It is shown here how the tension of an entire nation drained the liveliness of a young boy.
The American Dream, coined by James Truslow Adams, famously stated that “life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.” Indeed, countless people have been inspired by, and pursued for, the dream of equality, prosperity, and a new beginning. The hired girls in My Antonia and the semplica-girls in “The Semplica-Girl Diaries” are amongst the countless dreamers: immigrating to America in pursuit of prosperity for themselves and their family. However, while the hired girls eventually achieved their dreams, the semplica-girls became items of show, seemingly never able to achieve their dreams. By comparing the two stories, we see that the American Dream does
Don’t judge a book by it's cover People always say, “Don't judge a book by it's cover.”. But do we really listen? Do we try and get to know people, or do we ignore what we know is right? In the novel, Define Normal, written by Julie Anne Peters, the stereotypes developed to teach the reader to not judge a book by it's cover. Quotes from the story show how people stereotype Jazz.
In the book My Antonia, the characters developed a lot throughout the story, but one character development that stood out to me was Antonia Shimerda.

In the beginning of the novel, Antonia and her family are welcomed into Nebraska. They stay next to Jim Burden and his grandparents, they are the ones who welcomed them.
