The full of experience always makes him to be a rational person. Pony boy start to want to the fight between Socs and Greasers to stop, here are basically three reasons that why he thinks so: They got psychological damage, it cause the death of his friends, and their gangs are very dangerous. First of all, one of Pony boy’s changes throughout the novel is influenced by fighting. Johnny was for self-defense, so he killed Bob. This passage in the novel shows us the psychological change of Pony boy : “A panic was rising in me as I listened to Johnny’s quiet voice go on and on ‘Johnny!’ I nearly screamed.
I’m positive that Lance Armstrong is well known world widely, since he has been able to achieve much in few period of time. Now, for him to confess, this would mean many people will question his credibility as well. To fight and still lie, would also do him no good because people will still perceive him as deceiver. In many cases we have seen how people are influenced by those whom they follow. In most cases if a child is looking up to someone who lives his or her life unethically, in one way or the other, that child will draw something from that person.
Ponyboy, the protagonist, lives with his two older brothers, Soda and Darry. Their parents died earlier in the year. As a result of this, Darry, the oldest, works two jobs in order to take care of his two younger brothers, and though Darry and Ponyboy have a strong relationship as brothers, their relationship has ups and downs. Darry is trying to take care of his brothers and do what is best for them. Sometimes, though, he pushes Ponyboy too hard, which Soda constantly has to remind him of “...when Darry hollers at you, he don’t mean nothin’.” (Hinton, 17) Soda is trying to remind Pony that Darry doesn’t mean all of the things he says when he is angry, and that he only yells because he is concerned about how Ponyboy acts.
Many people have different adjectives and phrases to answer the question “what is resilience” but each answer is the same. People know what it means to be resilient, but there are not many resilient people in the world. Not many people could get beaten, verbally abused, and come back against all the odds. To be resilient people need to keep their dignity and their pride and that is exactly what Louis Zamperini, Ed Roberts, Jason Zimmerman, and Frederick Douglass did. These four men had all the odds against them with so much suffering, but they rolled up their sleeves and fought through that pain because they are the true definition of resilience.
Not only did Dally save Johnny from a building and get hurt, but he then went on and fought In a rumble.The rumble was to beat the socs, and Dally knew he had to fight in it, after all it wouldn't be a rumble without Dallas Winston,"the rumble was on. Dallas Winston ran to join us."(122). After this moment it was all coming together for Ponyboy, all the little things that Dally did was his way of showing he loved someone. Ponyboy didn't realize because he thought Dallas could never love someone, and no one could ever love
A quote that I think that has to mean is that this story explains how Stradlater and Holden get into a fight. ¨Why the hell dontcha shut up when I tell ya to?¨ he said. He sounded pretty nervous.He probably was scared I fractured my skull or something when I hit the floor. It 's too bad I didn 't. (pg.45) The quote shows how Holden and Stradlater got into a fight.
Every society has predetermined circumstances in which people will follow. Many go about their lives following the crowd and do not challenge the existing state of affairs. However, some become irritated with the conditions of the society they reside in. They gradually think different, become defiant, and finally attempt to enact change or literally escape to a different environment. Throughout history, many people rose above the status quo and were able to create everlasting change, like Booker T. Washington and Martin Luther King Jr. Then again, many others would reside in the shadows of a society they came to reject.
An anonymous author once said, “You say it 's your life therefore your decisions, but are you aware that your choices will not affect only you, but also those around you, who care and love you dearly even if you aren 't aware of that. So make the right decisions and choices in life to make not only yourself proud and happy but also those around you.” Throughout the many books we read during class there seemed to be a running theme through a few of them. Men make rash decisions and act on these rash decisions while women stop and think things through before they act. According to crisiscounseling.org, Dr. Michael G. Conner author of “Understanding The Difference Between Men and Women” writes, “... male attraction to high speed activities and reckless behavior that usually involve collisions with other males or automobiles. Men invented the game “chicken”, not women.” So in this paper I will discuss how men make rash decisions in Othello, how men make rash decisions in Wuthering Heights, how men make rash decisions in In Evil Hour, why men act the way they do, why women are different, and why people could argue against my reasoning.
If they refuse then siblings will be raped, injured, and threatened to be forcibly absorbed into a cause. This cause is usually a struggle between other gangs over a forgotten logical reason even the members themselves don’t know about. If you escape this cause then the same consequences for not joining may occur or you as well as others close to you will die. This then tempts others to both avenge those who have fallen or give new members to gain revenge against the rival gang. See the pattern?
The theme i choose was violence because there was a lot of fighting and in one part someone killed someone and it 's important to the story because it give it action. Violence is someone who fights or kills it occurs a lot because socs jump greasers it affected johnny and ponyboy. “Hold up!”a familiar voice yelled. “Hold it!” Darry turned to see who it was, and paul swung a hard right to the jaw that would have felled anyone but Darry. The rumble was on”.
