I assumed it was a bottle of booze, but then he opened the paper bag and turned it upside down. Hundreds of dollar bills—ones, fives, tens, twenties, all wrinkled and worn—spilled into my lap. ‘There's nine hundred and fifty bucks,’”(Walls 264). Rex is being helpful because he is showing that he is fatherly like most parents he is willing to help Jeanette pay her college tuition. Rex is helpful because he could use that money to get off the streets, but instead he uses it to help Jeannette get a good education.
This was right after the first destroying of the marigolds, and instead of joining with the kids in merriment, she instead felt ashamed as a woman. Elizabeth also turns into a child in the story. In a certain case she has to decide between both of them: "I just stood there peering through the bushes, torn between wanting to join the fun and feeling that it was all a bit silly." Elizabeth ends up being less mature than her brother in the end. When she destroys the marigolds for the last time, her brother keeps on trying to stop her: "Lizabeth, stop, please stop!"
As we know, when Janie had to marry Logan she gets her dreams of a beautiful and happy marriage crushed. All the dreams she had for a happily ever after was washed away with marrying him “She knew now that marriage did not make love. / Janie’s first dream was dead, so she became a woman.” And earlier we see that she felt he was “was desecrating the pear tree” but did not know how to tell her Nanny, so she just “hunched over and pouted at the floor”. So as tie goes on things go as expected and she meets someone named Jody Startks. And even though he did not meet the standard of her pear tree, he seemed like a better option than what was in her life at the moment.

Gatsby has been obsessed with Daisy, and ready to do everything in order to get back her love, even if he needs to do illegal stuff to earn his wealth to reach her status. But Myrtle is completely different from Gatsby; she is so obsessed with being in a high social class that she would do anything in order to reach her goal even if she needs to cheat on her husband. Gatsby very quickly fell in love with Daisy but due to his lower class status never could marry her. "She never loved you, do you hear? She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.
The Proctor family practically gave her a home to stay at while she worked there. Mary worked for them, but still couldn’t believe in the decisions they’d made so Elizabeth could get out of the accusation and have herself saved. Before Elizabeth was accused Mary gave her a poppet that took her “hours” to make. Mary handed it to her as a gift, poor Elizabeth not knowing she’d be accused of witchcraft. The moment Elizabeth was accused, John immediately sought Mary for help since she was the one that gave Elizabeth the poppet.
Implementing this duty at such a young age makes these tasks seem regular to the child. This is clearly shown in Jeannette Walls's The Glass Castle. At age 13, when Jeannette is left home alone for two months to take care of her younger siblings; her mother gives her $200 to pay for expenses. When first given the money she focuses on paying for utility bills and food. Jeannette comes up with a well organized budget plan to finance themselves.
When Junior was in first grade the government tried to make him less like an Indian and this can be seen when he said, “My hair was too short and my U.S. Government glasses were horn rimmed, ugly, and all that” (Alexie 170). In second grade Junior’s teacher Betty Towle thought that Junior was very disrespectful. However, she was not respectful to fact that Indians and their traditions like having long hair. So she tried to force Junior to cut his hair. The text said that “She sent a letter home with [him] that told [his] parents to either cut [his] braids or keep [him] home from class” (Alexie 173).
One way to cope with problems is to simply deny there is a problem in the first place. For example, Gatsby was impatient to Daisy when they decided to tell Tom about the affair. On the day that Daisy, Gatsby, Nick, Jordan, and Tom met up for lunch, Gatsby and Daisy agreed that she was supposed to tell Tom that she never loved him and that she was in love with Gatsby. Although, it was not true that Daisy never loved Tom. Gatsby simply wanted her to confess this to Tom because Gatsby was in denial that she could ever love anyone except for him.
Janie learned the hard way that you actually have to love someone for your marriage to go anywhere and last long. Her first run through was with Logan. Janie only married him because of her grandma and for “protection”. We know this because Nanny tells Janie “‘Tain’t Logan Killicks Ah wants you to have, baby, it’s protection.”(Hurston 15) That was her first mistake, she married someone she didn’t even love and look how long that marriage last. Her second marriage was a little bit better at first but she began to slowly realize that she didn’t love Joe either.

My mama had finished her story by telling me she’d been mortified and didn’t know what to do. So, she did what I guess anyone in her situation would have done. She left. The funny thing is though. At the time of all this happening, she’d been standing in line behind Kolinski at the checkout holding a package of aspirin and some salve ointments for me that were supposedly good for curing poison ivy.
Therefore he beat him up until his mom jumped in his place and got beat up instead, she would do anything for her children. This quote is relevant to the novel because in the beginning of the book O-lan was working for The Great House of Hwang, however, she never talked about it unless it was for her children’s sake. Wang Lung was surprised to hear that then reason that his son was misbehaving was because of women. O-lan suggested getting him a slave, however, his father would not allow that. He decided he was proud his son was a young lord.
She during this scene,is described by Jordan who states, “She groped around in a waste-basket she had on her bed and pulled out the string of pearls”(pg 76). Tom tires to buy Daisy with material things, such as the pearls, but ultimately she detests the pearls since they signify her loveless marriage. Earlier on, we find out that Daisy hasn’t been happy with her own marriage, as she states, “Well, I’ve had a very bad time”
So I married Curley (Steinbeck 88).” She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do. Also, she is not considered a “normal” wife; “normal” for that time meant she was supposed to stay inside and do chores and cook. Instead, she goes around, talks to the men working and hides from her husband. Curley’s wife is lonely because no one talks to her to prevent trouble. George said to Lennie, “well, you keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat trap if I’ve ever seen one (Steinbeck 32).” Undoubtedly, the two characters Lennie and Curley’s are very contrasting characters; nonetheless they both share the feeling of being different and alone.
