Whatever Revere might think of himself, however, he is a heroic character in the story. Paul managed to not only successfully warn the men that he was supposed to, but additionally managed to not give away where the men were when he was questioned by a group of soldiers. He was even brave enough to tell them his name and not lie, as he states in his deposition, “I answered my name is Revere, what said he Paul Revere; I answered yes.” (MSH. Paul Revere’s Dep) Not only did he admit to who he was, but he continually insulted the soldiers, “I told him they would miss their Aim.” (MSH. Paul Revere’s Dep) This was a man who was only assigned to relay a warning to two men; he was not required to go above and beyond his duties and yet he did.
It is then after all, easier to follow the path of hypocrisy rather than to stand by the words once said. It requires a certain type of bravery to never retreat what we once said, this is a characteristic that is seen throughout the greatest leaders of history. Take for example Martin Luther King Jr. a man who no matter what supported nothing but his thoughts until the day that he died, this isn’t a trait seen in insecure and fragile kind it is only belongs in the persona of someone who has no fear to express their thought and are secure about such thinking. Huxley mocks the lack of this trait when portraying Bernard and shows the opposite when describing John. As we have deducted these two are two completely different people, while the kid stands by his message to society not paying attention to the possible consequences, Marx will do say whatever he can to please the others, a perfect example of this contrast is when the savage is arguing with Mustapha Mond about freedom not caring of the problems that could follow while Bernard is stating everything possible so that he doesn’t get in trouble the author shows this character’s weakness by writing “You can’t send me.
He deserves loyalty from his crew because he tries to save them, he forgets about his needs, and does not actively put them in danger. Even though Odysseus puts his crew in bad situations at times. Well throughout the journey Odysseus figures out new ways to save and find his way back home. Even when his crew tries to ruin his journey he still keeps an open mind and will do anything for them. And as Mario Puzo once said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.” They have to figure out that they need to use each other to make everything come together even when times get hard and everything becomes scarce we need to work come together as one and realize what is actually happens.
Zamparini bears much pain that would actually (broken) other people. Nonetheless, he is not destroyed (is unbroken) by all the experiences (Hillenbrand 71). For instance, as a prisoner, the Japanese military tried to torment so as to “break him” but he persevered. Also, the life of post-war was much a struggle and could have destroyed him but he managed to realize the spiritual power which saved him (Hillenbrand 73). Therefore, the (Unbroken) idea reflects how Louie was affected by the war and post-war life but he remained firm.
After meeting officer Smith, Conover realizes that treating the inmates as human beings is the easiest way for him to carry out his duties. “Smith melded toughness with an attitude of respect for his inmates. In turn, he was respected back.” (92) Conover realized that Smith’s methods worked and that the officer determined the nature of the relationship with themselves and the inmates. It’s interesting that the Academy never mentioned any of this and all that they heard over and over amounted to care, custody, and control. The inmate relationship was anything but
What does it take to be a person of great measurable character in today’s society? When I think of someone of this caliber, I usually imagine an elderly man, calm in the face of adversity with little words. When he does speak, do not miss one single detail, because every syllable is crucial to how the message is intended to be received. To not take his advice to heart, would be imminent ignorance. He is the epitome of having life figured out.
Bob Cratchitt is the poor employee that works for Scrooge, and even though Scrooge so mistreats him, he remains a loyal and grateful employee. Bob Cratchitt has a large family he feeds with his small salary, he is always happy and willing to continue working. The most important thing about Bob Cratchitt is his son Tiny Tim, who is very sick and in need of medical attention that Bob cannot afford.

Introduction Some people argue that etiquette no longer matters, that the rules for good behavior are old-fashioned and out of date. However, good behavior and manners are never out of style. Etiquette, like all other cultural behaviors, evolves to match the times. Without etiquette, members of society would show far too much impatience and disrespect for one another, which would lead to insults, dishonesty, cheating, road rage, fist fights, and a rash of other unfortunate incidents. Etiquette is merely a set of guidelines for politeness and good manners, the kindnesses with which we should always treat each other.
