It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero. Stanley’s expectations weren’t high considering that Zero had been away for days without food, water, or shelter, but when he overheard the Warden and Mr. Sir over talking about how they were going to delete all of Zero’s files and act like he never existed, he knew he made the right choice. Near the end of the book, my feelings about the lines above were reassured to be true when Stanley was officially released back to his lawyer and before leaving he said, “‘I can’t leave Hector.’” (Sachar 219). This caused Ms. Morengo, Stanley’s lawyer, to demand Zero’s files but then discovering that Camp Green Lake was a fraud, forcing it to be shut
Although they don’t get along, he helps her, by communicating with her through the gifts he sends to her in the arena, and Katniss realizes that she and Haymitch are very much alike as they both understands each other. For example, he didn’t send her a water when she was dying of thirst. She realized that the only reason he wasn’t helping her was because she was about to find water, and she was right. Nonetheless, he is a very smart man, as he knows the rules of the Games, the celebrity status that comes with it and how to deal with it. For instance, he uses Peeta’s love as an advantage for Katniss, and gets her sponsors.
Benjamin Franklin presents a truthful and unbiased version of himself. In an excerpt “from The Autobiography” Franklin shows a pieces of his personality in actions; Franklin also admits to making mistakes. Personality traits like kindness when young Franklin offers payment to several people for the help he receives. However, because these people refuse the shilling “on account of my [Franklin’s] rowing; but I [he] insisted on their taking it” (Franklin 90). This shows that Benjamin Franklin is kind because no matter how much money Franklin possesses, he offers a portion of his money to people in exchange for help.
However, he was wise at the end. Jonas’s naivety was evident when Jonas was thinking about volunteer hours and how they were always important to him because the other hours of the day were regulated heavily. This shows that Jonas is naive because he does not know that having very little free choice is not normal, and that most people from the time before him had the freedom to choose how they spent their time, “The freedom to choose where we spend those hours had always seemed a wonderful luxury to Jonas” (Page: 26). Another example came later in the book as Jonas was talking to The Giver about color and quickly rebukes the community that they should not have eliminated color. The example shows how Jonas was naive because he did not know all of the evils that the world had created by means of color.
Tom and Jose are alike in many ways when it comes to work. Tom thought that if he bargains and lures the boys into wanting to whitewash the fence, he could get out of chores. They are both smart businessmen. While, Jose knew that his cousin, Arnie, would try to get over on him so he made sure that their deal was a seventy-thirty split since Jose completed all of the labor while Arnie “supervised” and found the jobs. Tom and Jose also appreciate things as well.

Another value that was key to the success of Louie Zamperini was society. At first Louie was a delinquent trying to find endless ways to make money even if it included stealing.

People referred to them as “Pete the athlete and his no-good, troublemaking brother Louie” (Benge 26). But once Louie began running and doing well in races Torrance saw the other side of Louie.
Also it would teach them how to manage money and how to become a responsible adult. With so many players getting so little out of their college experience, it would be nice for even just a few players to learn some of life’s important lessons. These student athletes need to learn as much about managing money as they possibly can before some of them make it to the pro’s and start earning a great amount of money more than they 're used to. It would also put some in the situation of financial stakes becoming high. When players get suspended from a game, what does that really teach them?
“Poverty must not be a bar to learning and learning must be an escape from poverty” this was said by Lyndon B Johnson in 1964 and the problem he was addressing back then, has grown and become far larger and more destructive.
