At one point in the story, George and Lennie are on their way to the ranch, and as they are walking, they talk about how Lennie should act as they arrive. George hopes that Lennie will not have them fired before they even get the job when he tells him that, “If he finds out what a crazy bastard you are, we won’t get no job”(6). George is worried that if the boss doesn’t like them, they might get fired. He believes that the only way for Lennie to behave and not get them fired, is if he is cruel to him. George is cruel to Lennie a lot of the time, calling him “a crazy bastard” even though the connotation of “bastard” is astoundingly harsh.
This quality shows grit because it can help people not give up even through the hardest times. One example of Mike Ditka doing that is “ When the Bears were down 14 going into the 4th quarter Mike Ditka made a speech to his team about never giving up and they didn't give up and won the game”. Never giving up leads to success because even if you are not doing the best in something and you give up you will never be able to get anything done. Helmuth was determined to not say his friends names to the gestapo so only he would get punished.

Many people supported her, she was working harder than ever trying to give speeches around the U.S. She was afraid that once things started to settle down for the movement acts, that it will take a long time to stir up again. She was right because four decades after her death in 1883 women would finally get a chance to vote. That still did not stop her she made it a life mission to get across people that the way they are living is not right. She changed people's views, she changed how women are seen, she might of not changed laws but she changed the way people lived.
Not only him, but everybody in the family is going to have to work harder and help each other out. Instead of Ponyboy moving on from his brother and his friend passing away, he lies to himself about this situation. In fact, according to the text it says, “I always have been kind of absent-minded, but man, then, I was lucky if I got home from school with the right notebooks and with both shoes on.” (169). This really indicates that because of his friend’s death it leads Ponyboy to doing poorly in school and reacting differently.
We use redneck freely in songs and television shows. When redneck is often used to describe someone from the southern United States it is slur. With no teeth, inbreed, and with no education, rednecks are a class of hard working people. In the 19th and early 20th centuries redneck was the offensive slang that was politically used for poor farmers.
Well, they are usually grizzly and mean with dirt between their toes and mold on their teeth. But did you know that Bunyips each have a place that they call their own. Just like a bird they make a nest with the things they can find, like branches and twigs, mud and leaves.

Claire, having cooked feverishly and diligently for, what seemed like, to her, a better part of a fortnight, finally took off her apron, untied her hair, and changed into her night gown. It had been a full twelve hours of preparation; and her first assignment as “lady” of the house. Few understand the intricacies of Thanksgiving day as well as the Rutherfords do. Furthermore, the Rutherfords, being known throughout the county as aristocrats, never fail to entertain an annual “Thanksgiving Ball”-which usually includes only the highest ranking magistrates and

For the past twenty-five years my close friend has attempted to enlighten me to the teachings of her ancestor's each time I questioned her reactions to such things as death, disaster, injustice, and also to her seemingly insane determination in the face of sure defeat. As she gently explained, the sound of her word's went into my ears. I comprehended what she was saying, however I didn't really understand until I was browsing through some pictures on the internet using a key phrase I had heard her say so many times; The Trail of Tears. A particular image caught my eye and as I looked at it, the flat words she had said to me began to come to life. Each word with it's own shape and rhythm began to come alive and together poured out to me a beautiful
A Change Adam awoke to his alarm’s increasingly annoying alarm clock. Last year, after a brief fascination with the movie Groundhog Day, he had set his alarm sound to the song of “I got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher, with the idea that it would be a great reminder of the blessing that each and every new day offers. However, as each day passed, and each day the same song kicked off (just as in the movie), he, more and more, began to see the repetition that existed in his own life. Of course, this song couldn’t possibly be the sole reason for the subtle apathy that had crept over Adam’s mood. And so, Adam continued going through the motions, allowing the same alarm song to commence each day of his seemingly pointless life.
