First, Ralph believes he and the group of boys will be rescued. “We want to be rescued; and of course we shall be rescued” (Golding 51).

Human nature and pride show when an individual has traits of humanity, and responsibility is other needed. Atticus didn't give up on his visions throughout the novel, and this is very important to the younger readers, because his character was a role model to many. "Then Mr. Underwood’s meaning became clear: Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts, Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed," (Lee 82). This quote explains that not many people believed in Atticus, but he believed in himself and his case, and that's what mattered in the long run.
Nick Carraway the narrator and also one of the main characters in The Great Gatsby. Throughout the first two chapters we see that Nick is very different from most of the other characters in The Great Gatsby who are very shallow and do not care much about people other than themselves. Instead Nick is very tolerant of the way everyone acts and their ideals, he is also very open minded, an example of this is that even though he is disgusted by the lifestyle that the other characters live he still gives living that lifestyle a chance.

Although they were frightened, generosity among them was not a possibility. All for the exception of Simon, he would do anything to help even if it cost him an arm and a leg. One case would be when Simon was generous to Piggy. “Ralph stirred uneasily. Simon, sitting in between the twins and Piggy, wiped his mouth and shoved his piece of meat over the rocks to Piggy, who grabbed it” (Golding 74).
