Say-I’ll give you the core of my apple.’ ‘Well, here-No, ben, now don’t. I’m afeard-’ ‘I’ll give you all of it!’ Tom gave up the brush with reluctance in his face, but alacrity in his heart.” (Twain 19)
The motif hero in the book night doesn 't appear often, the word actually only shows up one time. The consonsept of heroes is what is tossed around. The guy in the beginning of the book that tells Elie and his father that they are age 18 and 40 so they won 't go to the crematorium.

However, he was pulled of by one of his friends, which in the novella is his friend Gordie, that makes him very angry and causes a conflict between the two. Gordie justified his actions based on the fact that the driver could’ve reported about them to police, saying “Teddy, you dodge anything after we see what we are going to see, but until then no one is supposed to see us” (334). While on the other hand, when Chris pulls Teddy off the railways in the movie, he justifies his action by saying “I was just trying to save your life, man,” and then doesn’t allow the
They did laugh when he ended up telling them because they knew it was all in his head and that he didn’t have it. Another difference is that one boy wanted attention from his mother when Schotz said to his father that he could go when he was sick and didn’t make a big deal about it when he said so. The other boy realized “She had made me get into bed upstairs and then hadn’t even come up to see how I was. ’’ (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.
He remembered the only line that his one friend told him which included the words “They is” which is grammatically incorrect. Anders did not tell his other friends about one this other kid told him because he realized that he would be a jerk if he did that. Those two words gave Anders some kind of excitement because he did not expect those words at all. That was his final memory because it gave him the happiness because it was truly unexpected for him compared to the life that he was in when he was still alive wherein he always critics things because he thought that he already saw all the things that may be unexpected for others. When I read this story, the main character’s personality is static when he was alive and when he got into that bank robbery situation where he criticizes the bank robbers without hesitation.
One of the representations for the play is Williams trying to reach a realization of his sister’s illness and “exorcise his guilt” over not being able to do anything to help her (viii). He tries to write the play to escape from this guilt, but ultimately nothing can cure him. Tom is symbolic of Williams in the play, as he also tries to escape from his family, and especially his feelings for his sister. He only escapes temporarily before he comes back to the dreadful household, for one cannot permanently find their way out of reality. Although Tom finds his way out of his life with Amanda and Laura, he found himself to be “more faithful than [he] intended to be,” not being able to leave Laura in his past (vii. 97).
“Sweetheart of Song Tra Bong” begins with a statement about stories that the ones remembered are the ones that mix fact and fiction. The narrator is reminded of a story of Rat Kiley but remarks that Kiley is known to exaggerate and the other members of the platoon know to take Kiley’s words with a grain of salt. Already readers learn to critically examine the story for any snippet of truth. Mitchell Sanders doubted that a man would bring his girlfriend over to Vietnam, the main point that Kiley’s story rests on. This does seem unlikely considering the tendency to protect women from war yet

Doodle was born without the ability to walk, and he was born with such deformity that he was not supposed to live for very much longer after birth. Doodle’s brother makes the choice to teach doodle how to walk for a selfish reason rather than a compassionate one. The narrator tells how the only reason he helped his brother learned to walk was to not be labeled as the boy with a crippled brother. Though the parents believed that he helped his brother out of the emotions and love for his brother, but in reality, the narrator taught his brother to walk out of embarrassment and shame. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff is a novel about a young girl named Daisy and her life during World War III, and in this novel, Daisy experiences the relationships and and loss of life.
While George and Lennie buck barley in the movie, George sees Lennie hauling by himself as much as two other guys haul together and he smiles as if he would if he were proud of his own son. George also must give Lennie orders and care for him just as though Lennie were his own child. While Curley beats up Lennie, George must yell, “Get him Lennie,” because Lennie doesn’t know what to do. At the beginning of the novel, George orders Lennie to wait for him in the brush by the river if he ever gets in trouble. Similarly, when Lennie starts taking his pup out too much, George advises him to put the pup away since he doesn’t realize he will hurt
Finally, this novel demonstrates how Scout’s character develops in various ways once she gets the chance to stand on Radley’s porch because she sees the world from his perspective due to why he disclosed himself from everyone else. As she stands there she also comes to understand that Boo was not the ghout that she and Jem have assumed from the very start and she certainly couldn’t believe that he saved her life. Besides she now gets to understand what her father meant by ‘you can 't understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb into his skin and walk around in it’ (page 39) The understanding Scout has finally had of the way people are perceived and the way they actually are. It shows that she has learnt what many people in their life never learn which is to have empathy for others.
