To Atticus, withholding violence is one of the highest forms of bravery. The children believe themselves to be brave when approaching the Radley house early in the book, but learn later on that this was false bravery, and in fact, silly. Atticus holds up Mrs. Dubose as the ultimate definition of bravery, as she finds against her morphine addiction in order to be free from it before she dies, even when she knows she will die in the process. Atticus, who also fights against a power greater than himself, tells his children they should have great respect for Mrs. Dubose. Finally, Bob Ewell represents the greatest cowardice, as he both lies in the courtroom to protect himself and resorts to attacking children in the darkness in order to make himself feel more of a man.
His children particularly Mayella, have been affected by this lack of empathy, and have developed it as well. After Bob had just saved Scout and Jem's lives, Atticus and Mr. Heck Tate were talking about Mr. Ewell. "He has guts enough to pester a poor coloured woman, he had guts enough to pester Judge Taylor when he thought the house was empty, so do you think he'd met your face in daylight?" (Page 269) - Mr. Heck Tate (on why Bob Ewell went after Scout and Jem). This quote shows how Bob Ewell has no empathy skills whatsoever.

This is conflict because already Jules makes Baby feel like she is not loved and that she is unwanted and to her the fact that while he is at this rehabilitation center, trying to get better, he might forget about her and make her feel more unwanted, than she already is. Jules already neglects Baby on a day to day basis, but now that he is starting over from zero, or trying to, he may feel like Baby is his past and he does not need to intertwine her with his new life. O’Neill uses metaphors in this novel as well. This can be seen through the following quote “Every good pimp is a mother” (168). This relates back to the unwanted child because since Baby’s father is not a very good father
In Chapter 3, David was injured and he could not try a bandage by himself, so his mother helped him to tie the bandage. After that, David said “I could have managed it all right by myself if I'd had another hand.” and Joseph Strorm was angered and punished David, just because David said something that opposes his own belief and ideals. Sealand Woman despises('She [Sealand Woman] says that everybody there wants to make them, and people who can't do it much work hard to get better at it.') the people with weak or no telepathic powers, and she thinks only the strong ones shall survive. Despite so, she still rescued David and Rosalind from the Fringes, even though they are weaker in terms of telepathic capabilities compared to Petra.
The secret rituals performed in the “shrines” is so mysterious and time consuming in their cultureas well.

Could this culture really be so willing to give up their health and well being of their children for the sake of being treated by a medicine man? Another startling discovery was how the Nacirema devoted themslevles to the pain and agony they received from the prestige specialists they call ‘holy mouth men.” I questioned over and over again, Why? Then I recognized the routines the Nacirema displayed and discovered our own American culture is so very similar.Americans deem the body as ugly.
