Ponyboy is out with his friends and without his brothers, he is free to express himself. During a conversation, with his new friend Cherry Valence, Ponyboy expresses openly and clearly his feelings towards his two brothers and once again underlines how much he loves and admires Sodapop. He actually shows pride when Cherry compares Sodapop’s looks to his. She then asks Ponyboy to describe Darry after noticing that he does not mention his older brother; Ponyboy, seeing that this is an opportunity to express his anger, proceeds to express his resentment towards Darry. “He is not like Sodapop at all and he sure ain’t like me”.
Ponyboy Curtis: A smart and fanciful fourteen year old who belongs to a gang called the “Greasers”. He wonders why life is so much more difficult for him and his friends than it is for the Socs. He loves his brother Sodapop, who is kind and loving and understanding, but he doesn 't get along with his older brother Darry, who he sees as a bully. Though he wants to be part of the gang, he doesn 't always agree with their violent ways. Pony is quiet and shy, and prefers talking to a Soc named Cherry about sunsets.
I think this shows great text evidence because he scared to show the boys about his letter. He is also scared that they will make fun of him for writing to his mother. This also shows that he is a shy kid when “He was only talking to Zero in the beginning because he didn’t want to talk to anyone else.” (Sachar 1-15) This is great text evidence because only shy people talk to one or two people a camp. Stanley is a very shy kid because he only wants to talk to one person.
Ponyboy from the novel “The outsiders” is very different from the Gang the Greasers In many ways. One example that Ponyboy is not like other greasers because he thinks deeper than the other members in his gang he notices the little things in life for example, “you know, Johnny said slowly, “I never noticed colors and clouds and stuff until you kept reminding me about them. It seems like they were never there before.” This means that when Ponyboy notices the little things he says them and has other People notice them too. Ponyboy has learned a lot throughout the story. For example when Johnny and Ponyboy saved those kids from the church I think that was one of the biggest lessons because even if it risks your lives to save kids like that you
Ponyboy says, “I ran home trembling at the thought of facing Darry” (Hinton 49). This shows that Pony and Darry are so isolated and different from each other, that Pony is afraid Darry won’t understand why he was late.

. Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything. Not only did the gang prevent him from finishing his studies, but from overall becoming a high-class man; as Ponyboy had announced to the rest of his

It doesn’t prove anything.” Beforehand Ponyboy talks about how he is sick of fighting and that fighting won’t make anyone win, this is further proven by the fact that nothing changed after the rumble. Ponyboy talks to Randy about how things will always be rough all over, even if you’re rich and famous you will have hardships and tough times just like the people who aren’t rich. In conclusion, with understanding and love people can stop hate without causing more hate to
Ponyboy’s two brothers have been looking after him since his parent’s demise. In chapter one, Sodapop is described as “always happy-go lucky and grinning.” Whereas, “Me and Darry just didn’t dig each other. I never could please him…He just hollered at me” (Hinton 13). Ponyboy did not understand that Darry just wants to make sure that Pony graduates and pursue the bright future ahead of him – unlike Sodapop. However, Darry’s anger is often misinterpreted for hatred.
I know there isn't no beast—not with claws and all that I mean—but I know there isn't no fear either.’... ‘Unless we get frightened of people’” (Golding, 84). The way Piggy views life is revealed when he says this and to Piggy life is all technological. Piggy’s character makes him skeptical of the existence of a physical beast, and his mind gives him the idea that what they fear may soon become the boys themselves. Although Piggy has warned the boys of this possible occurrence, they laugh at him and brush off his theory as they commonly do. Piggy’s logical explanations are taught to the boys, but they won’t understand his words because his intellect overpowers the other boys.
The boys on the island do not like Piggy because they do not like what he has to say. When Piggy talks to the boys, he usually puts the happy atmosphere of the Island to a somber one. When the boys first get to the island they are somewhat happy about being on the there. They think that their friends and family are going to rescue them someday. When Ralph calls a meeting in chapter two regarding the rules of the island Piggy says some pessimistic things regarding being rescued.
At the beginning “To kill a mocking bird”, Jem was very carefree and untroubled, but throughout the novel, he changed for the worse. Jem was always playing with Scout and Dill without a worry on his little mind until the life of adulthood got to him one day. Jem slowly stopped hanging out with friends, just to begin worrying about harshness of everyone in Maycomb. I believe when everyone began calling Atticus a “nigger lover”, Jem began to get more harsh toward everyone, even his dearest sister, Scout. If scout were to as to play before, Jem would hop right to it and they would go play a game down the street, but now, Jem would give his sister the cold shoulder and tell her to grow up.
