In his novel, The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck explores this theme while telling the story of a poor family’s journey during the Dust Bowl. In the novel, Steinbeck uses Ma Joad to portray generosity is perceived differently through social classes (poverty?). Ma Joad giving the children stew gives children false hope of a bright future. After making stew for the whole Joad family, Ma sees she has some leftovers in the pot. Many “strange children” crowded Ma Joad waiting for her next move.
The foremost example is that Schotz was actually sick when the other boy was not and actually faking. It started with a boy in his neighborhood, Walter, who had inflammatory rheumatism who didn’t have to go to school and could fish whenever he liked. (Stolen Day 305). When the boy got to school, he started aching and was told to go home when he really started thinking that he had it like Walter. Thinking his family would just laugh at him if he told them about his theory, he decided it would be best not to tell them.
"I didn 't do anything wrong. All I know is I saw two people struggling to get inside these walls and they couldn 't make it. To ignore that because of some stupid rule seemed selfish, cowardly, and...well, stupid. If you want to throw me in jail for trying to save someone 's life, then go ahead. Next time I promise I 'll point at them and laugh, then go eat some of Frypan 's dinner”(Dashner, 166) This quote proves that Thomas can’t stand anyone facing trouble.
Unlike “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?”, in the story “The Fisherman and His Wife” the wishes from the “enchanted prince” flounder was used for greed and power. The fisherman did not need anything from the flounder, but his wife was incomparable. In the story, she demands her husband to go back to the flounder and wish for “a little cottage...a stone palace...to be king…to become emperor…to become pope…to become like God.” The fisherman feared his wife as she wanted more and in the end when it became too much, the flounder convert all that was done. She was left with what she started with, the moral was that greediness and the thirst for
Right there is a great example when thought about. Because, right after Jack said all the fun things they would do as a tribe many of the boys followed and joined him. This may be a prime example, but there are smaller examples that many don’t notice or turn a blind eye to. A smaller example is when events turn serious many will no longer listen to their leader. On page 142 the boys are all discussing how the fire and rescue is most important, but Samneric get the conch and together say, “That must be fun like Bill says-and he’s invited us- to a feast-meat-crackling-I could do with some meat.” This is a good example because it shows that people will try and get out of the serious stuff and instead do what they think is most important which to them at the time was meat.
I’m going to write about my personal experience with fishing. My first time fishing was a fun one, I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know what a hook was from a weight. I had no idea how to even cast a pole. But now I have a personal record for myself with a 6lb 5oz Largemouth Bass.

There was at one time a poor shepherd-kid whose father and mother were dead, and he was put by the prevailing voices in the house of a rich man, who was to encourage him and bring him up. The man and his wife, then again, had awful hearts, and were voracious and desirous of their wealth, and vexed at whatever point anybody put a piece of their bread in his mouth. The poor youthful individual may do what he loved, he motivated little to eat, however just such a large number of blows the more. One day he needed to watch a hen and her chickens, however she got away through a fence with them, and a bird of prey shot down in a flash, furthermore, carted her away through the air. The kid called, hoodlum, cheat, rapscallion, with all
It was cliché to say, but I felt my heart painfully clench. A pack of candies, a bag, a cheap cologne and other simple things were written on the paper. It was like a slap to me, trying to wake me up that those children were there, wishing for something so simple, while I was asking for something as expensive as gold. While they were eating, I thought that they would enjoy all of those foods. I was wrong again when they made their way upstairs to bring the fried chicken for them to eat for their dinner.
