He most of the things with doodle because he is either forced or for self pride and have a selfish and egoistic ground to them. He does things to Doodle sometimes just to be malicious. This goes off the sense that most good deeds have evil roots.

There are different ways to define “good.” You could say that someone is good at sports or singing, but that doesn’t mean they’re good person. Neither does it mean they are a bad person either. Being a good person is doing what’s right, and being kind as well as generous, some would say it’s your personality that makes you a good person. Well, why should someone be good, if there is no law you have to follow telling you to do so? There is a simple answer to this question: it is the right thing to do.
Atticus may have many flaws, but those flaws are what makes him a good character, and not bad father. This essay is on the book To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, and the subject is that Atticus is a good parent to his children because he helps them grow, does not coddle them and tells them the truth. The essay will start with evidence of how he helps them grow, then how he does not coddle them, and finally, how he is truthful to them. Firstly, Atticus shows good parenting skills by helping Jem and Scout grow and mature. For example, “’What Mr. Radley did might seem peculiar to us, but … not … to him.
Lasty, theres some swearing and calling names. The Puritains hated cussing because it was a way to hell. Due to the way the characters dressed, third person writings, and sinful acts the Puritains would hate this book.

First off the narrator was ashamed of Doodle, and second He just simply did not like Doodle. Here is my evidence.

Huck proves his friendship to Jim with this small, but the very courageous action of not sending the letter and ripping it up instead. In some ways, the letter is a symbol of friendship and loyalty between Huck and Jim. Huck is learning to follow his instincts, telling the truth, and being a great friend to Jim. This essay won’t feed the world the usual silliness, so instead here is something different. Everything that has happened in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a lesson from the past for the present, and future.
However, in this day and age, idolism can be detrimental to the health of a society. It can lead to an unhealthy fixation on such person, and as a result a distorted image on oneself. It is all well and good to admire others, but to place them above all else can have serious negative consequences. Revering models or sports stars can lead to eating disorders and psychological issues. "It can be a way of avoiding rather than dealing with problems," (Dr Tony Cassidy; Independent Magazine).
He is telling Miss Kinnian that everything is good, but when you really analyze the text, Charlie is only doing that so she will feel better. Another example of how he does not truly show that he’s glad he got to be smart is in his progress report on July 24th: “I dont know any work but the job I used to have at Donnegans Plastic Box Company. I dont want to go back there because they all knew me when I was smart and maybe theyll laugh at me” (Keyes, 304).

This is significant because Charlie seems to have lost his confidence in
An anti-hero is a main character that does not possess the traditional heroic qualities and is instead admired for what is generally considered a weakness by society. They can also be someone who fights for the side of good but has a tragic flaw, or uses questionable means.

The question that this arises is whether or not he should be considered an anti-hero. While Chappie is a character that can be admired despite his shortcomings, he doesn't fight for or sacrifice himself for any sort of ideal or side.
