In the story the Scarlet Ibis by James Hurst the narrator knows what he did was wrong. In the end, he realized that his own pride was the downfall for his own little brother. For wanting a normal little brother and not a crippled one. As stated on page 2 “ It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make my plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow”. Clearly, in this sentence, it shows that the narrator would rather have no brother at all than having one that is crippled.
In “The Scarlet Ibis”, Hurst uses the theme of peer pressure to argue that the normative conformity with one’s reputation leads to death. In providing rationale for his brother, Doodle, the narrator exclaims “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him… (Hurst 176). The narrator statement explains his embarrassment of having a handicapped brother. The narrator didn’t get the normal brother with whom he could share his love of the outdoors. When he finds out he has an “invalid brother” he feels it's “unbearable”.

When Carlson says to Curley, “Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin’ them two guys”, Carlson is wondering why George and Slim are sad. George is grief-stricken because Lennie was like a little brother to him, and he cared immensely for him, nevertheless. Slim is lugubrious for the reason that Lennie seemed so innocent to him and seemed to have been killed out of sorrow. From the moment that Slim saw Lennie, it seemed like Lennie and Slim formed a special bond. When Lennie had wanted a pup from Slim, he did not seem to care to give it to Lennie.
I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. […] Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy? If we threw away these rifles and this uniform you could be my brother just like Kat and Albert." (Chapter 9) In this quote Paul realizes how wrong he has been this whole time, he says if they were not in the war, both men could have possibly been close friends for all they

This proves the disappointment Willy contains in him and how his thoughts have lead him to the belief that death is the best resolution. This is a connection to the song because it reflects on their love and how it might had died but maybe someday it will come back. The chorus also reflects on a possible death that he could possibly not survive his next
It soon became evident that I was my father 's favorite. My brothers, like most people would, became jealous and would play horrible pranks on me. Father would just tell me "They 're just trying to toughen you up." And shrug me off. (I Imagine he did that to any problems my brothers had as well) But, while my father could be cold, I could always find solace in my mother.
From the other member 's perspective, he could be perceived as sad, but in reality he was trying his hardest to contain the smirk that wanted to spread across his cheeks. Deidara wasn 't exactly happy about the death of his partner who he had been with for years. He actually respected his hard ass and impatient partner by calling him "Danna", even when the other regarded Deidara 's art as nothing but trash. Deidara couldn 't help, but feel joy that his partner who always stated that his body was everlasting, died before Deidara did. This was /proof/ that art is ephemeral.
