Hugh did not take any of the mystery as a joke; he took it very serious, as it should be. He know that his brother John loves the scriptures and all the missing pages he wanted to show to him what he had discovered, but he had sworn to Dickon and Bleheris that he will not tell. Hugh showed perseverance in many ways throughout the story, by what he thought, said, and did. Hugh never surrendered on the treasures he kept on looking for them since he knew their importance in marking history. He also wanted to make Bleheris, Dickon and Brother John happy.
Dolphus is explaining that he does not care if people disapprove but at least he gives them a reason as to why he does it. “Secretly , Miss Finch, I’m not much of a drinker, but you see they could never, never understand that I live like I do because that’s he way I want to live” (Lee 228).

Another example of a person wearing a mask is Tom Robinson. “No suh, I never looked at her” (Lee 223).

Equality understands that his invention will benefit mankind greatly; however, this was not his main motivation in conducting his experiments, and it is not the primary source of the great joy he experiences. Discuss. In Anthem by Ayn Rand, Equality was always different from the others. He dared to think, write and try to pursue the life he wanted to pursue. However, his government did not support any of those ideas, as they were for everyone being equal, so Equality had a hard time doing what he wanted to do.

I am a man of my word, if I say I’m going to do something then I will do it. Being a very reserved person it becomes easy for people to think I can be taken advantage of. I am not the kind of person to speak what I feel or think to just anyone around me. My reserved nature came directly from my father who drilled into my head that respect and manners were of great importance. Since I’ve always focused on those two things I’ve never been a wild child or a disrespectful child.
It is very clear he is an educated and lucid man from his writing, and at first, it is natural to feel sorry for him – he has no home, and nothing to call his own, except his dog, Lizbeth, who it is clear he loves very much. However, as his story progresses, it is quite clear he is not looking for pity. He is simply sharing the tips and tricks of his trade, as any other worker would do. He does not want the reader to feel sorry for him, he simply wants them to understand what it is he does, and why. He makes Dumpster diving seem somewhat exciting and mysterious, rather than sleazy and disgusting.
