Not only does he commit countless heroic acts in situations of high pressure where he could die, he also never loses faith. He continues to believe in Ithaca and dreams of his queen and never loses sight of his goal despite the years and many distractions. Odysseus takes risks, an example of this is in book IX, when he enters the Cyclopes cave not knowing what’s inside. He does many things throughout the epic that seem to lack judgement, but later show he always had it under control. Another quality that supports Odysseus being a hero is that he is blessed by a god, meaning they notice something great or godlike in him.
But, they are wrong, just as Max knows. In addition to this quote, there is another, which reads, “That’s how he talked, right out of a dictionary. So smart you can hardly believe it.”(13).Again, this quote shows Max’s realization of Kevin’s intellect. Max refers to Freak speaking with advanced vocabulary, and just being highly intelligent on many topics throughout the book, so it is obvious that Max notices this regularly. Max notices this more than Freak’s size, which is a lesson that he learns.Not presuming something about another is a very significant life lesson, but friendship being an important relationship in someone’s life is just as
It is a great joy for a father to see his son suddenly a man” (p. 281). Danny also has a great amount of respect for his father even though he has been raised in silence. Even when Reuven questions that Reb Saunders sounds like a tyrant, Danny defends his father by saying “He’s a very strong-willed person. When he makes up his mind about something, that’s it, finished” (p. 116). Reb Saunders wants to raise a son that will be the leader for their people and Danny respects his father for doing anything that he needs to do to accomplish that goal and they both love each other
Lebron is known currently as being the best at what he does and also as one of the greatest to ever do what he does for a living, whereas Harrison may also be known for being one of the best to stand up for his people and show that the government is not always right in every situation.

In life, there are many people who influence others. Some are good influences and some are bad influences. The one person who influenced Christopher's life the most would have to be his father, Ed Boone a character from the novel the curious incident of the dog in the night-time written by Mark Haddon. In the book Ed Boone makes lots of mistakes that are completely understandable given his situation. He is still a fine father whose has unconditional love and commitment for Christopher which allows him to grow in spite of the numerous challenges he faces.
When distilling him down, it is near impossible to go any deeper than the obvious points. Danny Saunders possesses a brilliant mind, and often feels passionately about his beliefs, but he is constantly searching for the solution to the pain in his life and the lives of others. The Chosen makes it quite clear that Danny has a brilliant mind. So brilliant, in fact that Reuven’s father calls him “a phenomenon.” “Once in a generation is a mind born like that.” (110) Danny’s photographic memory and instant recall allow him to have a
Hassan Jan is Amir’s best friend, brother and servant. He is one year younger than Amir and was born with a cleft lip. From a young age both Hassan and Amir were inseparable, however Hassan had always proven to be the more honest and courageous out of the two. Hassan is always ready to listen to Amir and defends him when he is attacked, therefore also proving his loyalty within the friendship. His significant traits are bravery, selflessness and intelligence.
The likes of him and Amir are somewhat compared and contrasted, noting not only physical means, but also societal. Amir is cheeky and brimming with mischievous intent, with a cushioned life and a yearn to impress his father. Hassan is good hearted and loyal (as we see demonstrated throughout the whole book), with twinkling green eyes and a smile of unconditional admiration, he leads a life at the beckon and call of others. He is that of a servant boy, living humbly, marked by his status and cleft lip. By having been born with this deformity, Hassan cannot deny or dream of leading a different lifestyle in practice or in theory.
