Marial and uncle were no longer by his side,and they never would be again,but salva knew that both of them would have wanted him to survive,to finish the trip and reach the itang refugee camp safely. It was almost as if they had left their strength with him, to help him on his journey.” Another example is “ So he had to shake the fear of to continue the journey” These examples prove that Salva was determined because he knew that his family would want him to make the trip.
Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16). In contrast to all the long sentences, the fact that this sentence is short emphasizes the importance of how the young man’s new idea of going with his friend instead of his father changes his relationship with his father. However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).
Rafe's thoughts were “Still, Leo had a point. If this mission was going to be worth doing, I needed to do it right” (Pages 112-114, Patterson). Rafe is going to keep his “no-hurt rule” and follow Leo's guidelines and new rules by making sure he doesn't pull a stunt on Zeke and Kenny again and that he doesn't get detention or in trouble with his mother. For instance, he won’t interact with Zeke and Kenny because he nearly got caught and in big trouble with the principal. In addition, before the new rules, Rafe insisted “If I get detention, it's one week of time out.
Lastly, Pi’s ability to hunt and prepare food gave him the advantage over Richard Parker and allowed them to build an unspoken bond. Pi was deathly afraid of getting eaten by Richard Parker which was a drive for him to catch food. Pi believes that if Richard Parker wasn't on the lifeboat with him, he wouldn't have put such a large effort into collecting food and water: “[W]ithout Richard Parker, I wouldn’t be alive today to tell you my story”(Martel 182). Without Richard Parker's presence, Pi would have not put the effort into surviving as much as he did. The bond was less of a friendship and more of a companionship.
Despite facing bullying and abuse; this allows Peekay to spend pivotal years of his childhood forming his own opinions based on his worldview and not the view of others. This is shown when Peekay goes with his friend Hoppie to buy tackies and shows the Indian shopkeeper the same respect he had shown the Caucasian shopkeeper earlier on. “‘You’re a funny little bugger, Peekay. You don’t call a blery coolie ‘Mister.’ A coolie is not a kaffir because he is clever and he will cheat you any time he can. But a coolie is still not a white man!’” (Courtenay, p80).
“I think it was the fifth afternoon of this week and I blurted out to Timothy, I'll climb the palm now.” (Taylor 98) Phillip is telling Timothy how he can be independent and do things on his own. This quote shows how he is getting out of his fear of being blind and starting to do the things on his own. This is significant because it shows how far Philip has come from the beginning of being so innocent and unknowing to the middle of being scared and afraid because of his blindness and now not being afraid anymore and also not being so uneducated about
Despite of Huck’s young age and lack of education, through experience Huck had looked past the cultural norm of slaves. When two men come to Huck and ask if the raft has any runaway slaves, Huck lies and says that there is only his Pap in the raft with chickenpox. After the men leave, unknowingly that Jim is in the raft, Huck
This protection was needed to shield them from bad weather, lurking danger, or simply to provide them shelter and a place to rest. They spent several days travelling down river and developed a routine whereby they would hide by day and travel by night. Huck soon found himself contemplating whether he should turn Jim in or remain loyal to the fact that he said he would do no such thing. Huck appeared to have compassion towards Jim because in some ways he could relate being as though his home environment was not the best situation either. Although Huck was surrounded by slaveowners as he grew up, he decided to make his own decisions regarding the way he would treat Jim.
After the disagreement he did not talk to Sonny, even following the news his arrest, until after his little girl, Grace died. When Grace died, the narrator finally wrote Sonny and kept in touch as much as he could after that, inviting him to stay with him after he was released from prison. The narrator was scared that he was "simply bringing [Sonny] back into the danger he had almost died trying to escape" (74), by bringing him to his house; but, he felt an obligation to his mother to take care of Sonny like he promised to but failed. The strain of the argument and the tension of Sonny's arrest was obvious as Isabel is the only reason Sonny felt comfortable. The fact that Isabel and her family only endured Sonny and his music was only for his brother still bothered him and he would avoid being
Jim is a good friend to Huck because he protects Huck from seeing his dead father in the cabin (Twain 52). Jim proves his friendship early in their journey, but it takes Huck a bit longer. Huck eventually proves his friendship to Jim by ripping up a letter that he was going to send to Miss Watson. The letter would explain that Jim was innocent of Huck’s “death” and where he would be going (Twain 220). Huck proves his friendship to Jim with this small, but the very courageous action of not sending the letter and ripping it up instead.
