There are many lies that go on in Huckleberry Finn some lies may be good but other lies are very bad. Huck is a boy from Missouri and Jim is a slave there in Missouri and Huck’s dad is not a very guy so when Huck decides to run away everyone thinks he has been murdered and at that time Jim decides to run away as well. Everyone believes that Jim is the one who murdered Huck but Jim and Huck are friends and they both meet up while on the run and Huck stays with Jim while Jim runs to freedom. The first lie is good and bad Jim lies about the dead guy in the house to Huck because the dead guy is Huck’s dad and Jim thinks Huck will leave if he knew about his father being dead. The second lie is a good lie where Huck lies to the old lady at st petersburg when Huck is running away about his name and where he is coming from and what he is doing.
According to Ponyboy, “...he [Dally] got drunk, he rode in rodeos, lied, cheated, stole, rolled drunks, jumped small kids—he did everything.” (1.48) After Johnny died, Dally makes an enormous sacrifice that took away his life. He loved Johnny so much that he couldn't take the fact he was gone. Dally was known to be the most cold-blooded member of the gang but after Johnny's death, he was the one who showed the most affection. Dally wouldn’t have been shot if he didn’t love Johnny so much, and sacrificed himself. The greasers gang sticks together like brothers at makes sacrifices at great costs.
I—I RUN OFF" (37). This quote is showing where Jim ran away from his masters home and town so that he can free himself and his family. The town is also keeping Huckleberry Finn “captive” to. Throughout the novel Twain talks about how Huckleberry Finn feels trapped in the town and how he wants to escape civilization and his father. “Every little while he locked me in and went down to the store, three miles, to the ferry, and traded fish and game for whisky, and fetched it home and got drunk and had a good time, and licked me.”(Twain 34).
It’s about a slave who breaks the law just to be reunited with his family. A white boy helps him escape, so it can hardly be seen as a racist book. In more detail, a boy, Huck, fakes his own death so he can run away from his hometown to find freedom. “Because Mary Jane 'll be in mourning from this out; and first you know the nigger that does up the rooms will get an order to box these duds up and put 'em away.” (197) This basically says that all black men are thieves. This isn’t true or else Huck would not be breaking the law to try and help Jim.

He forced his brothers from the grocery shop they had opened and, despite not even participating in its creation, became the fraudulent store 's only beneficiary. He manipulated his position in the Central Pacific Railroad Company to snatch the position as the California Governor and then used his position as the California Governor to snatch the position of company president from one of his closest friends. He left his original occupation as a lawyer because he wasn 't making what he found to be a satisfactory amount of money and instead decided that his fortune would be more easily made through manipulation, theft, and graft. He manipulated public opinion and forced any scandal that could 've damaged his political or social standing onto those around him, choosing to ruin the lives of his friends and family instead of facing up to his malicious plans and actions. He exploited any person or event in his life to better suit him, even maneuvering his son 's death into a ploy for improving public opinion of himself by opening a prestigious-now well-know- university commemorating his son 's death and drawing the public to love and sympathize with him again.

A blind railroad worker who is giving Everett a ride foresees a fortune in his future, correctly predicting what will happen just as Teiresias correctly predicts that Odysseus will be the only one in his crew to survive the long journey home. Characters do not have to be the only things that are similar, certain events from the two stories can also be similar. In ‘O Brother Where Art Thou’ a thief named George Mason is electrocuted for his crimes; In The Odyssey, the crew of Odysseus steal cattle from Helios which results in the death of all the remaining crew except for Odysseus. These two events are similar because both incidences committed a crime that was unjust and they died for it. As George Mason is being taken to the electric chair, he is ‘talking to God’.
After fleeing, Ben Hall 's father would not return, until arrested, for two years, therefore this absence left Eliza and the children to fend for themselves, earning income from selling vegetables, fruit and livestock to make ends meet. Consequently Ben Hall 's older brother William (who would maintain a close relationship with his brother Ben until his death, would, along with Ben Hall 's half brother Thomas be the only family members to attend Ben Hall 's funeral.) would therefore be arrested for his alleged participation in his father 's crime of horse theft in 1845.
