After the trial, Atticus is confronted by Bob Ewell who then spits on him and Atticus tells Jem and Scout, “He had to take it out on somebody and I’d rather it be me than that houseful of children out there” (249). This shows us that Atticus wants his children to be willing to sacrifice themselves in order to save other people from harm. Furthermore, Atticus displays courage when he believes that Jem killed Bob Ewell and he states, “nobody’s hushing this up. I don’t live that way” (313). The fact that Atticus is willing to risk his son possibly going to jail demonstrates the amount of courage and integrity Atticus has as a person since he wants to do what he believes to morally right.
In society, you follow the rules, like you always have been and how you grew up. Mildred was the kind of person who always follows rules of society, especially when the rules come into play with her “family.” Since Montag was breaking the rules, Mildred had to do something so that she wouldn’t have gotten in trouble too. Mildred and Guy Montag could have soon got caught with Guy’s hidden books.
“Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.” This quote, while neither in the play nor memoir, depicts how both the society and the individual must work together to complete a task. Without this harmony between the two, events
What’s more, readers can also feel of the sadness of author, for he loses his best friend. In addition, author expresses the hate to the war. Last but not least, the line “The torch; be yours to hold it high.” also attracts readers. “Torch” means “hope”.
When things would go bad he always thought that was when he could mistreat us. When I say he thought he could mistreat us is he thought he could sit there and put my mom down and just thought he could tell me what to do. Well one time I had gotten in trouble and my father
War is Glory In the past, war has lead to hatred, violence, loss and death. Many have suffered from this mutiny and form of rebellion, but yet our nation continues to reside as war being the last option, when everything else fails. When our soldiers sacrifice themselves to go and fight in war, they do so with honor and courage. In Ernest Hemingway’s
Once at the military barracks he is still determined to not lose himself and his morals and therefore is often getting himself and the other young soldiers into trouble, “Kammel wants you to run round the shithouse” (40). Kotze slowly but surely breaks Campbell down until his only instinct is to survive and get out of this war alive, “within myself I’ve got principles… but like here we’ve just got to survive” (61). Campbell by the end of the play is so psychologically damaged by the war and the military training that eventually he betrays himself and shoots the already injured Black
He didn’t see it as fair because his father risked so much to bring the truth out in to the open. After all of the events involving Tom Robinson, Bob Ewell threatened to get Atticus back: “Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life,” (217). Bob Ewell followed through on his threat, which is where we see confirmation that Jem learnt the lesson of true bravery. Bob Ewell attacked Jem and Scout while they were walking and Jem protects Scout even if it meant he could
The attention that his mother could not give him. He was raised in a bad way where he didn’t know from right or wrong. It is not his fault he ended up that way it is mostly his mother fault for not being there when he was in need. He was only 18 and was always in and out of jail if he had a real role model in his life then things would have been so much more different. He had so much potential to be a good person but ended up in a bad family.
Insults can hurt many people and cause them to not work their hardest, Sherman Alexie, author of “Superman and Me”, demonstrates a life lesson that could eventually help you for a lifetime long. One of the quotes that I can use from the story “Superman and Me”, by Sherman Alexie is “I fought with the classmates on a daily basis. They wanted me to stay quiet when the non-Indian teacher asked for answers, for volunteers, for help.” My interpretation of this evidence is that the author wants you to try in life, not to sit back and let other people control your life.
(Chapter 9 pg. 63) I think what he was saying was that he could have been anything that they wanted something good or something bad, but he would still help them. Miss jane faced a lot of death, he friends died, the one person who called her mama (Ned) was killed although she knew that he knew he was going to die Ned still did the thing that he loved best, teaching with his wife, and she wouldn’t leave either because she thought her place was by her husband, her husband, though she did try to tell him not to, and yet he did, had died by a stallion that he said was his job to break them, but it got loose and dragged him, and the rope was all tangled around him when they found him. Yet, Miss Jane was strong and got through
Because he is grounded in principles reflected in the Golden Rule, it also makes sense for Atticus to take a stand and defend Tom Robinson because he wishes to inculcate such virtues in his children, knowing that his actions will serve to be their apotheosis of an ethical person, both as their father and as a lawyer. Atticus knows that his actions will be Jem and Scout’s paragon of an ethical person, and although defending Tom coincides with his own moral beliefs, it also coincides with the example he wishes to set for his children. He wants them to understand the importance of taking a stand in a peaceful way, and wishes to instill these principles in them, knowing that their involvement in Tom Robinson’s court case will be the determinant
In the book To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus tells Scout that courage is “when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.” Atticus has shown a lot of courage to his kids. Atticus showed courage by accepting the Tom Robinson case, by standing his ground at the jailhouse, and by standing up to Aunt Alexandra about Calpurnia. He even tries to get his kids to follow in his footsteps. What Atticus meant when he told Scout what courage was, was that even if you know that you're going to lose something it doesn't mean you shouldn't try.
What is courage? How do you show courage? Is having courage bad or good ? Well courage is when someone has bravery in doing something out of their comfort zone. For example, asking someone on a date needs a lot of courage.
