The way that Book 12 demonstrates examples of both skilled and faultless leadership on the part of Odysseus by not telling his men that six of them were going to die and by doing everything Circe told him in his fate. Not telling his men that six of them were going to die shows skilled leadership because he thought ahead and knew what their reactions were going to be which would’ve gotten them all killed, “They would’ve dropped their oars again, in panic,” (Homer 766). If the men were to panic, hide, and try to save themselves then they would’ve put the entire crew in danger including the ship. Book 12 shows how he is a faultless leader too, by sticking to what Circe told him was his fate. By sticking to what Circe said Odysseus ensured that he would make it home to his wife and son.

The point where Jack truly moves towards acceptance occurs when he sees the daffodils in the hospital and says “‘It’s Susie’s flower.’ My father smiled beautifully,” (280). Throughout the novel, whenever Jack thought, heard, or saw something reminiscent of Susie, he would cry and become saddened. This time, however, when he sees Susie’s favorite flower, he smiles and becomes pleased. Being that “Jack...grows closer to [the children],” (Hacht) and the children depend on him, they begin to accept Susie’s death, too. With Jack’s help, they do not forget, but accept Susie’s death, and move on with their lives as a
He shares the sacrifices of all the soldiers he is seeing upon the beach shore, all while honoring them. Ernie Pyle is currently in shock as he was walking down the beach but he's still trying to see the good in this terrible situation.

He makes the wise comments as he waits for his father to finish work. He concludes that if people saw him and his crippled leg, they would remember what Christmas is about. Furthermore, the boy said twice in the movie ‘God bless us, everyone.’ Therefore, my conclusion is that Tiny Tim felt love for his family and happiness for all. Though it must have been difficult, Tiny Tim felt no negative feelings toward the other characters in the story. He constantly smiled at passerby and companions.

The remaining boys on the island get rescued at the end of the book by a naval officer and when Percival goes to say his name and address “there was no more to come. Percival Wemys Madison sought in his head for an incantation that had faded clean away” (Golding 201). This shows that even Percival had changed due to the island and lost a part of him. At the end of the novel where Ralph weeps “for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart” (Golding 202), he is weeping for Percival. Percival is a symbol of innocence and Golding uses him as a way to intensify the loss of
He trusts that God will forget everybody their wrongdoings and calls his kindred travelers "great men." This recommends a disposition of partnership towards his gathering of people. This is tested when the Host says that the Pardoner's breeches are recolored with dung and that he wishes he had the Pardoner's testicles in his grasp so he could emasculate him. He likely says this in light of the fact that he has smothered gay person sentiments towards the Pardoner, particularly since he kisses the Pardoner toward the end of the section. The Pardoner doesn't affront the Host back, however.
Guy was so doubled up, he propped himself on his mother’s casket to keep from falling over. His grandson, Jim Berry, and our son Jon laughed so hard they were crying. Guy pulled up his dad’s pants and they walked out of the tent to the puzzled mourners. “I didn’t know what in the world was going on when I heard you all laughing,” Carolyn
No one was more pleased about this show of hospitality than Tupacus, because in his eyes, anyone who honoured Disgustingos honored Tupacus. A few days after Disgustingos had left, Herous was walking in his rose garden when he heard some strange but lovely music. He followed the sound and discovered a perfectly beautiful man sitting on the grass and playing a pipe. He knew right away that the stranger was one of the gods and he fell down on one knee. The god commanded, “Get up dawg.
