during his job as a street sweeper he meets his first real friend “International 4-8818 and we are friends.” he says this blatantly which lets us know he means it and he truly feels like a normal human person should, of course, this is forbidden in the city. “This is an evil thing to say, for it is a transgression, the great Transgression of Preference, to love any among men better than the others, since we must love all men and all men are our friends.

I feel like he trusted people easily. When he had finally learned the man and women’s name he introduced them to each other and gave them some money to use for whatever they wanted to do for rest of the day he suggested that they go to Coney Island or go to lunch somewhere. The man later on said how do you know that I am just not going to walk away and leave the girl here. Mr. Johnson said that because he asked that question that he knew the man would not just leave the women there. He came home to his wife and he asked her how her day was and she explained that she was just mean to people.

R-right ‘fore y’all come, she did.” Jeremy’s actions in Strawberry show the reader that he is willing to not only willing to stand up for Stacey, but also his family. Although he knows he will get punished for engaging with them, he still protests because he is truly a good friend. On the other hand, T.J. is not willing to stand for neither Stacey, nor the Logans.

The author wrote,“ Well, Stacey didn 't see Miz Logan comin ' when he took them notes, and by the time he saw her it was too late to get rid of 'em.

To do things for them that they could not do was very rewarding. I have lengthened my prayer list to include all of my new family, as that is how I feel about these wonderful people. To clean up a bathroom, where they physically could not, made me see and feel love, rather than disgust. To go to a grocery store and buy the week 's food for my ladies made me have a spring in my step, rather than the drudgery of grocery buying I used to feel buying my own food. To sit and hear a suffering individual 's problems- I try to console that person and advert attention to a happier subject-is a heart-rending experience.
The talk that he with Connie in the park showed who he was. They instantly clicked the second day they meant . He said to her “If Avery can't see your beautiful just the way you are then he's a fool and he doesn't deserve you.” He lifted her up at times like these and that's why she fell in love with him. I would think that I am viewed by others the same as someone who is kind, funny ,and just great to around because I don't judge people nor do I put them down, I love raising people's spirits and helping whenever I
I feel that this experience changed me for the better. When my mom asked me to take care of my 4-H goat, Clover by myself one day, I told her I would. I mainly did it to help out; it was the least I could do. I was thrilled about taking on a new responsibility and her trusting me with it, but I was also nervous that something may go wrong. However, that Saturday morning when I walked up to the pen, I knew it was a mistake.
Success is overrated. When people think of success they think of people like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, but in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations Miss Havisham and Joe are two of the most successful people in the book. My definition of success is being able to look back on your life and say it been worth living and finding happiness in your life. Throughout Joe’s life, he learns to be content with his life from a young age and always sticks to his morals. Miss Havisham gets her revenge on men but also gets forgiven for it.
As a part of the working poor she wrote in an attempt to educate people that poor people are in fact not dumb people. Critics were skeptical about her claims until they had done enough research to understand she was describing nearly a third of the American population. When she was asked why she thinks people were so sceptical, she answers with fierce conviction: “Because it’s easier to think poor people really are all stupid. It’s easier to think we can’t look like you, to think downward mobility doesn’t exist, only upward.” Her book challenges a collective blindness to a nation’s grim economic truths. “We have homeless PhDs, middle-class people on food stamps and 25% of all active duty military accessing food banks on a

Ashes took the $200 from the teapot because she loved her dad more, it would have been paid back in a day, and it would set her dad on the path to success. One of the reasons why Ashes took the $200 was because she loved her dad more. In the article it said, “and I realized he still called me Ashes, where mom couldn’t hear him to be annoyed. And that made me feel special all over again. Mom might never be caught without batteries or tissues, but she just called me Ashleigh - a name she didn’t even like and never promised me anything.” (Pg.
At first, I was very uncomfortable, and scared to talk to anyone. At the end, after washingg the dishes, I felt so happy, and it had been such a humbling experience that trully changed my life forever. Ever since that day, whenever I see a homeless person, I see them completely different. I thuink back to that day, and how happy they were to get that one meal, and how happy I was to see them happy. Usually I beg my mom or dad to giv them money or food, but when that fails, I just try to smile at them and let them know that I care.

Huck even makes good friends with Jim which would have been completely unheard of back in his home town. By the end of the book, he had started to realize that he really did care about Jim. Huck is writing Miss Watson a letter towards the end of the book talking about where Jim is and how she can get him back. After writing the letter, Huck starts to think about the good times he had with Jim and says that “...somehow I couldn’t seem to strike no places for me to harden against him, but only the other kind.”(213). This was the most powerful part in the book for me because after thinking of all the good that Jim has brought him, he tears up the paper and says “All right, then, I’ll go to hell”(214).
