Throughout the memoir, we learn about Baca’s father through the memories he would share. Baca does not degrade his father, even though his father was not there for him. The lack of a father only gave Baca a greater determination to become a loving father for his family and to live life the best he can (Baca, 6, 2001). As a young child, Baca was afraid of his father’s temperament, but Baca still yearned his father’s love “I want to go to him and hug him but I’m afraid.” (Baca, 144, 2001). Baca’s father was a strong factor that affected Baca’s life.
If Ponyboy had to describe his older brother, “He looks older than twenty-tough, cool, and smart” (Hinton 6). Having a good image like the one Darry has on the gang can really affect them positively as they look up to someone to hopefully strive for. Darry knew that none of the boys had a father to look up to so instead of being another member of the Greasers, he took the biggest responsibility ever, which is to be the “man” of the the group. Darrel has every internal characteristic of being a good person but he also wants the gang to look their best to keep the reputation of a Greaser high. On the night of the rumble Darry was for sure trying to be an epitome for his gang and maybe even impress the Socs, “Darry had on a black T-shirt that showed every muscle on his chest even the flat hard muscles of his stomach” (Hinton 132).
Our sacrifices show others what we value, and what we value shows others what the sacrifices we have made to live our lives. Hans as we know is a fatherly figure to Liesel and represents what a father is all about. He is a warm-hearted, affectionate, strong and compassionate foster father of Liesel. Death describing Hans by saying, “To most people, Hans Hubermann [is] barely visible. An un-special person.
I never knew you could talk” Will starts to notices how smart his dad is by paying more attention to his dad. He does this because they are
In the article, Birds and Bees, No Let’s Talk about Dollars and Cents, by Ben Stein, he successfully makes his point to inform his son that he needs self discipline to create human and financial capital to have a more stable life. The young boy has been living large his whole life and his father wants to help him keep it going by having self-discipline to make smart decisions so he doesn’t live in fear and insecurity. Ben Stein uses many anecdotes to get the point across to his son and the readers of the New York Times that people are capable of coming from nothing and turning into something with the willpower to make smart choices. With the use of anecdotes and repetition all throughout the letter, it allows Stein to utilize logos, pathos,

This shows when Brother states, “Doodle and I spent lots of time thinking about our future” (Hurst). The story showed from the beginning that Doodle was in his Brother’s mind a lot. Brother wanted the best for his sibling because he didn’t want to be known as “the boy with the crippled brother”, but also, he wants Doodle to be able to enjoy the may gifts of life.
Elie and his dad at one point had that father son relationship anyone could live for, but now they both rely on each other if they need something. Elie is forcing himself to be the strongest of both of them. Elie thinks without his dad he could be living better because his dad is his “weak point”, because when someone you love is very likely to die and your love can be used by your enemies to get you to give them what they want or need. Elie looks as it as his father used to watch over him and take care of him but now it’s the other way around. He thinks that he can’t take as good of care for his father as his father did for him.
"Brother put lots of his time, effort, and care into Doodle even though "It's a miracle [he] didn't give up" (Hurst). His efforts showed the pride he had, or at least wanted to have in his younger sibling; even if it was rooted in selfishness. Pride is what motivated Brother to help him, though he wished it was his family which gave him the grit to always push Doodle to success. Brother
It seemed like sometimes the owner would try to put together a decent team, and other times it seemed like the team was a tax write-off. Perhaps the owner Bill Bidwill had the best intentions when he would hire a new coach every other season but to the fans it seemed like he was just pulling names out of a hat. When Bill Bidwell decided to hand the football operations over to his football savvy son in 2007, the franchise took a positive direction. Bill Bidwill’s son, Michael, has done a good job since taking over for his father. He really got it right when he promoted Steve Keim as the new GM and managed to steal former Coach of the year Bruce Arians away from Indianapolis.
Danny’s dream is to be just as good as his dad, which is hard to beat, but Danny knows he can do it if he sets his mind to it. It’s very interesting how the author made it that the only way Danny ever finds out stuff about his dad
The ultimate goal of all parents is to see that their children succeed in life. While this may be true, most fathers have additional expectations of their children, as is evident in author Lord Chesterfield’s letter to his son traveling far from home. These expectations are expressed in the rhetorical strategies utilized by Chesterfield. In addition to demonstrating his desires for his son, the rhetorical strategies implemented in the letter reveal the values Chesterfield holds as true. In order to persuade his son that the knowledge he holds is pertinent, Chesterfield first disbands the notion that parents only give advice to exert control over a child, then ties the ability and pride of himself to the success of his son, and finally suggests
Being loyal and not desiring the company of other men sexually are ways that a man is able to perform his manhood but the true essence of being a man is to be a protector and provider. A boy or young man who joins and serves in the armed forces meets and exceeds the requirment of manhood. There is no greater honor or privilege to fight and die protecting not only one 's love one but protecting one 's nation. If dying for a country and protecting its philosophy is the ultimate measure a man worth as a true man, then military masculinity is undoubtly the path to perfect manhood. Hop Hip, while men do not go as far as to risk to lives for their country, they will do absolutely any and everything to protect their families, their brand and their money, all the things that they love most in this world.
Elory and Tim had spent so much time together that Tim thought of Elroy as a father figure. He remembered the time they first met, and all that Elroy had done for him.
