This relationship clearly shows that Sang Ly may be poor but she is much more of a loving mother than a poor housewife. In “The Rent Collector”, Sang Ly comes back from the healer and everything is stolen but since everyone knows how much of a caring person she is they all chip in to help her out. “Mother, Nisay, Tera Mao, and I are organizing out home, and, before my eyes, friendship is soothing the sting of injury.” It is evident that everyone loves Sang Ly since they are helping her out in a time of need. “And do not worry about the things you lost.

Hester became known as the woman who was able to do anything. In the beginning the scarlet letter represented adultery and shame, but then the A represented “able.” Hester Prynne showed people that greatness can come out of huge mistake. One bad chapter does not mean your story is over. Willingly, Hester wanted to pick herself up again and move on with her life and eventually people noticed that. They began to respect her and think of her as strong and commendable
She was desperately holding on to the words who had saved her life" (Zusak 499). In the end, words were powerful enough to save her. The Book Thief illustrates the idea that words have the ability to hurt and heal. Liesel's relationship with words is depicted in this ending quote from the book of her life: “I have hated the words, and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right” (Zusak 528). This line conveys Liesel's realization of the manipulative power of words and her attempts to use writing in a compassionate way and to make them ‘right’.
"It was debated whether or not the scarlet letter was to be taken off her bosom." With this, the people are beginning to consider that maybe Hester has fulfilled her punishment. She has gained their acceptance once again, and it was mostly due to her not backing down from her silence.

After the loss of her younger brother and separation from her mother, it is easy to see that she found it very difficult. She was more than lucky to receive the love and care that Hans and Rosa Hubermann provided for her, even if it was accompanied with a strict mentality and plenty of yelling. Hans was a nurturing presence in Liesel's life, teaching her to read and comforting her through nightmares. On the other hand Rosa provided a fair share of mean spirited nicknames, such as, “Saukerl” and, “Arschloch.” Rosa’s projection of love differs immensely from Hans but she certainly cares for liesel just as much, as shown in this quote, “...But she did love Liesel Meminger.

Her use of logos was good in the terms that Dr. Brown had a ton of supporting evidence for what she was talking about. 12 years of intense studying and interviewing is a good amount of supporting evidence, but she didn’t back it up enough with reasoning to persuade. After analyzing Dr. Brown’s “The Power of Vulnerability” we can see that the way her talk is structured helps us to see that we are all vulnerable, but that we are all capable of belonging, and of love. Brown’s credentials makes all of her points very valid, while she lacks the persuasion of her audience. Furthermore, Brene Brown captivated her audience and made them really look internally to find out what their vulnerability is, and how to embrace
