Before the turning point, Bud despised being called by other names because of what his mother constantly told him when she was alive. He also did not have family that he could trust and give love to. “I wasn’t about to let anybody call me Buddy and stick a pencil up my nose all the way to the R. I swung as hard as I could at Todd’s balloon head.” (Curtis, 13). Bud did not allow someone to call him Buddy, as Bud when Bud was called Buddy, he punched Todd Amos. After the turning point, Bud is more open with people calling him with another name for that Bud knows that they are calling him that with love, and Bud has a great liking for the name.
’’(A Stolen Day 307). He was talking about his mother and this makes it clear that he wanted more attention from his busy mother, which made him angry that he wasn’t getting the attention he thought he should have. A third difference is that Schotz decided to stay inside and rest all day, but the other boy decided to go outside after he rested for a short amount of time. Soon after getting mad at his mother, he left to go fishing without her noticing. He
In The Outsiders, after Johnny had killed Bob, Ponyboy and Johnny had to go on the run because they didn’t want to be caught, but Johnny says later on that he doesn’t want Ponyboy to have to live this life, and he is willing to turn himself into the police. Johnny couldn’t gain anything from this, and is willing to sacrifice the rest of his life because he doesn’t think it’s fair that Ponyboy has to live his life in hiding and away from his family. In the text, it says, “Johnny nodded. ‘I 'm sure. It ain 't fair for Ponyboy to have to stay up in that church with Darry and Soda worryin ' about him all the time.’” Johnny decided that he was going to turn himself in to the police because he 'd rather face the consequence than force Ponyboy to face the hardships of living on the run with him.
It didn’t hurt my physical being but it really smashed my pride. I have never ever been treated like a dog. Mr. Lyall knew how much I hate being treated like a wild animal so he was cautious with his punishments but she went way over the line. Not sure on how to react to the current situation, I start to cry and run down the stairs, locking the door behind me. I hear Mr. Lyall yelling his head off upstairs but I put my favorite song on the loud speaker to drown out his voice.
Knowing that a signal fire is necessary for them to be rescued, Ralph, Jack, and the rest of the children amass a pile of wood. Unfortunately, they have no matches, so Jack decides to grab Piggy’s glasses to help burn the wood. Instead of helping Piggy, “Ralph elbowed him to one side and knelt by the pile” (Golding 40). This shows that Ralph grows a dislike towards Piggy once he becomes the leader. At the start of the book, Ralph and Piggy are friends, but the moment Ralph gains power, he treats Piggy with animosity to show his dominance to everyone else.
When the Choragos tried to tell Creon that he made a mistake by telling that nobody can bury the body of Polyneices. Creon did not want to listen to the people of Thebes who tried to tell him that Antigone did the right thing, but of fear to Creon the could not really say anything. At the end of the play, Creon comes to realize his tragic flaw after he ultimately caused all of his family and Antigone deaths. Creon lost his will to live after this point, unwilling to forgive himself for the attroisty he caused. The same can be said for Antigone.
In Act 3 Scene 3, Hamlet walks by Claudius while Claudius is praying with his eyes close, facing the other direction. It is the perfect opportunity to kill Claudius. Hamlet even pulls out his sword to kill him. Hamlet says, “This is hire and salary, not revenge” (Shakespeare 59) This quote shows that Hamlet doesn’t feel like this will be good enough revenge, to kill him while he prays, because he might go to heaven and he won’t avenge his father’s death. Hamlet acts so crazy that he couldn’t remember that he just wanted to kill Hamlet.
Eli also knew that Carnegie was the wrong person for the Bible. The voices in his head that first told him to go on his long journey did not specifically tell him where and who to bring the Bible to, so he followed his gut instinct and his faith. Carnegie ended up dying a slow death was an infection in his flesh wound with “his people” attacking him in the end. This is the opposite of how Eli died, which was after he peacefully stated every word from the Bible and was properly
But for some reason he'd always accidently kill them. ¨ You gonna give me that mouse or do I have to sock you?¨ ( Steinbeck 8). George would never let lennie have a mouse, which made lennie feel like he was alone and wish his aunt was there.. Even though lennie and George, all George did was control him. George had specifically told lennie not to talk to anyone, but sometimes people get a little bit lonely.
Mr. Van Daan is being very cruel. Mr. Frank has provided him with shelter, food, and a place to sleep, but Mr. Van Daan won’t even go make sure he is safe. He’s acting like Mr. Frank has done nothing for him. Instead of rushing out to go make sure Mr. Frank was okay, he yelled at Anne to be quiet so she couldn’t remind him of how ungrateful he was being. Here is an example of when you really wonder if people are good deep down.
He is stating that the kids are alone, not what a bunch of kids who are homesick need to hear. When Piggy is described as “paler than before and breathless.” It shows that Piggy understood the facts, in that they were most likely not going to get off the island, no one else seemed to understand that. Piggy’s asthma usually kicks in when he is most angry or scared, he really is ruining the time on the island for the other kids. “Perhaps they knew where we was going to; and perhaps not.” Here, Piggy is first says “perhaps” as in, “we might get rescued after the war if they knew where we were.” Piggy’s second part of his speech says “But they don’t know where we are ‘cos we never got there.” Piggy is not saying “perhaps,” he is saying outright that they will not get off of the island. It is said that “The silence was so complete” Piggy is normally shut up when he tries to speak, but this time he was not.
Joe goes as far as to ordering her what to wear when he says,” Her hair was NOT going to show in the store. It didn’t seem sensible at all. That was because Joe never told Janie how jealous he was”(55).Joe is concerned about other men admiring his wife because he is afraid that Janie will no longer listen to him, and then leave him. It is very important to Joe that he possesses complete ownership and dominance over Janie, so when Janie resists, Joe becomes worried. When Joe couldn’t find the order for the pig’s feet, he says, ”You ain’t put it where Ah told yuh tuh.
Ironically, Simon was going over to them to tell them there is no beast, since he just finished having a hallucination of the pig head speaking to him naming himself ‘The Lord Of The Flies’. “Fancy thinking the beast was something you could hunt and kill!”, which indicates that the Beast is not meant to be touched, heard, seen, tasted nor smelled because it’s simply within. Ralph’s group consist of littluns, the twins and innocent Piggy, Simon had a bond with Ralph so it was hard for him to get over it, whereas Jack’s group consist of everyone else and they didn’t really felt sympathy, or at least didn’t show it. (Thus allowing the secondary characters to become more meaningful in my opinion). Jack’s group hunts and rolls boulders and chants.
Walter does not want to kill Krazy-8 and, after getting to know the man he plans to release him. Just as he is about to turn Krazy-8 loose but Walter realizes Krazy-8 has made a makeshift knife from a broken plate shard and probably most likely will try to kill Walter with the plate. Walter strangles him to death with a bicycle lock. This shows that Walter has had a lot of decisions to make concerning himself and his family. Walter never wanted to kill emilio and Krazy-8 but he did it out of self defense since they pulled guns out on jesse and walter and they had to do something about it.
Erin backed away leaving the scene disgusted, calling him a ‘’loser’’. Later on the sirens comes in, me and the other medic weren’t in the mood, so we acted like we didn’t care what happened and we had something better to do. I come out quoting ‘’Yup. When will they learn’’ I picked Narrator 2 from the ground and aggressively put him on the wheel chair. Narrator 2 later didn’t like our roughness because he was complaining about how his ankle
