John doesn’t know everything that happens to him and around him so, John is a naive narrator. The narrator being naive helps sets the tone of the story. John is very eager to learn more about the gods, but he doesn’t know what the dark things that lay before him. In the beginning, John and his father used to go take things from dead people's houses. John didn’t know if he was going to be a priest until his father tested him, but when they found out that he will, it changes his entire life.
I can’t live one way in town and another way in my home” (Lee 367). Atticus is willing to put Jem on trial in order to teach his children that lies will only lead to disloyalty and deception. He does not want disloyalty to run through the family, so, when the time comes, he sets an example by telling the truth. No secrets or lies to hide from himself, his family, or the townspeople. Jones supports Atticus’s honest nature by saying that, “Reflection gives us humility, forces us to confront our own frailties and limitations; and compassion helps us love…”(Jones 152-153).
Ulysses Everett McGill acts strategically about whatever he does, but is also loyal to others around. Everett accepts that he lied about the treasure, but he explained that it was only because he wanted to stop his wife from being married to another man and be back with his family. This shows how Everett strategically lied about the treasure
Not to mention, he takes the case without outwardly pleading it is a hopeless cause. To show, Atticus defends Tom Robinson as he would defend any white man, and makes it his civil duty to do this man right. Coupled with Atticus’s personal beliefs, he never shows regret in his obligation to Tom Robinson and his family. In another instance, Atticus respected these citizens even before the case. Though the residents of Maycomb did not agree with him, Atticus stuck to his belief all men are created equal.
“Honesty and loyalty are key. If two people can be honest with each other about everything, that's probably the biggest key to loyalty” Taylor Lautner. This relates to the novel by John Steinbeck Of Mice and Men by showing that two men that are honest with each other will have loyalty in their friendship. George was loyal to Lennie even after all of the scandalous acts, Curley wanted to make sure his wife is safe and another significant example is Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend. These three examples show that friends should be loyal to the extent that they do not inflict unnecessary suffering like Georges tolerance for Lennie, Curley's allegiance to his wife and Candy’s devotion for his dog.
This may not be a very good policy for Luke. We have to consider that he can be honest with his family, but not completely honest with his employer. Again, there’s the risk of getting fired if he discloses that he has allowed Owen to be aware of the changes that are coming to his community. The “Golden rule stipulates that “treating others as you want to be treated”, stipulates that Luke should do the correct social behavior. Should this only include appeasing the community’s needs before meeting his employer’s wants?
Jim is the moral center of the story. He brings reason to situations, although unorthodox at times. He is depicted as a man with a kind heart and with no urge to hurt a soul. In the book, Jim does a lot of major things for Huck, but he is also kind and generous when it comes to little things: “I went to sleep, and Jim didn't call me when it was my turn. He often done that” (23.30).
Huck’s lying is justified because he has to in order to protect his friend. Throughout Huck’s journey he finds himself in numerous situations that may appear to reject what society believes is right. He joins a group of robbers, helps a slave run away and tells multiple lies. However, the reasons for his actions justify what he does. Huck might go against society’s beliefs but he always seems to do what is right.
No one in their community ever lies. But then Jonas realizes that he would never know if they did. He could, since his rules allow him to, ask someone if they lie. But if they are also allowed to lie then they could say whatever they want and he will not know if it’s true or not. Then Jonas starts wondering if what adults say is true or if they lie all the time too.
We hear a voice: “behind you,” it says. After we give Jonathan our cards, we realize we don 't have any more in the jail, only the two the cops stole. He gave us two jacks and said to give them the cards and they would give us our cards. We did it and sprinted back to Jonathan, and we
As was stated before, we see that Jay lied about places where he was when Adnan called him, where he actually saw Hae’s body first in his two interviews. It is unclear where Jay was from 12:30 to 3:30 until he gets a call from Adnan. According to what Jay said he was at Jenn’s house, but the timeline does not line up with Jenn’s timeline. Also, their stories do not match. He lied about where Hae’s car was ditched and if he helped Adnan to buried Hae’s body or not.
Everyone is hoping that Josh Harris will post another video about how his brother is doing and what happened with the arrest. In his last video, Josh admitted that he had been drinking a bit and was afraid that he might get in trouble for posting it, but that didn 't stop him. Yesterday, Josh Harris went to his Facebook page and gave an update about what was going on. At this time, he said police knew who had attacked Jake, but they were going to finish working their case before arresting the suspects. It sounds like it all worked out since they were able to arrest both of the suspects.
