Unwisely utilizing money in large amounts to buy unnecessary objects, Jackie, despite supposedly being the second-in-command of her family, remains unaware her family does not have enough money to spend wildly and uncaringly. Therefore, instead of keeping the family strong, she sinks it into debt. Moreover, Jackie, by circumventing her reality check, similarly how she brings her family debt, believes she gains strength from her marriage to David, whilst, entirely opposite to her thinking, David does not gain strength from the marriage, even going as far as to describe Jackie as his wife is the same as having another child (Greenfield). Jackie does not have a stable grasp of the current reality. This also shows Jackie’s position in the family: equal to her children, meaning she has no power within it—she has no role.
She is treated as less than a servant at Gateshead, despite being significantly more than that. Her fault lies in that she has no money of her own, and the only reason that the Reed's care for her is that it was Jane's uncle and Mrs. Reed's husband's dying wish that she should be looked after.

Anse is even too stubborn to call a doctor for his own wife until it is obvious that she is desperate. Peabody says, “I knew that nobody but a luckless man could ever need a doctor in the face of a cyclone. And I knew that if it had finally occurred to Anse himself that he needed one, it was already too late.” (42) Peabody highlights Anse’s stubbornness in this passage and shows just how unwilling to adapt and help others he is. The other characters are bothered and annoyed by the grievances of Anse, and his neighbors such as Tull view Addies death and Vardaman’s actions as “A judgment on them.

This prayer leads him to Lord and Lady Bertilak’s castle where Gawain is once again placed in a “wager” position with the Lord and thrice tempted by the lady. He refuses all advances except that of a green sash, which he is under the impression that it will save his life. He does not report this gift to the Lord of the castle and this trickery makes Gawain uneasy for he does not know where to place his faith. He had made promises to both the owners of the home and he cannot justify betraying one of them. This is his only “sin” to be shown throughout the poem and he does pay for it.
He lives at the house of the Widow Douglas, who is taking care of him together with her sister, Miss Watson. Their unsuccessful attempts to "sivilize" him are some of the first attempts to change his morality. But like everybody else later in the story, nobody but Jim ever manages to influence him significally. Huck really is aware of his aunt’s efforts, but thinks civilized life is nothing for

When these phrases are heard for the first time, the immediate responds is to ignore; mainly because it sounds prattle. Needless to say, for those individuals who decide that the warning isn’t for them, they always become involved in situations that make them wish that were smart enough to listen to them. In the book, “An Evening in Guanima,” there are many stories where the characters refuse to listen and made grave mistakes or learnt valuable lessons. In “The Gaulin Wife,” the winsome Bachelor’s grandmother who raised him warned, “Listen boy, you guh pick ‘til you pick needle wit’out eye.” Yet he never listens treating everyone as if they were beneath him, “Wit’ dem pop eye she gat, her ma musse pity frog or goggle-eye fish.” However, initially it was obvious that the man was going to get exactly what he dissevered. His first downfall was not being able to have a child.
