Huck questions why he has not turned in Jim because he wants to be what society depicts as good, but in reality, he does what he knows is right. While Huck is on the raft alone, he begins to question why he helps Jim escape while Miss Watson has done nothing wrong to him. Huck feels terrible but he cannot bring himself to pray that he can do the right thing. “I was trying to make my mouth say the right thing and the clean thing, and go and write to that nigger’s owner and tell where he was; but deep down in me I knowed it was a lie-and He knowed it. You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227).
odysseus is brave because what he says he does with out showing any worries. odysseus is a good leader. he think of a plan to escape. odysseus is a good leader because when everyone worrying he sitting in the cave trying to find a way out so they can keep their voyage going. he show how he a good leader and not showing any worries.
He believes that if they want to find out what it is they should go towards it instead run away this one fact sets him apart from the rest of the tribe, it also gives him this fearlessness that none of the other boys have. When everyone is afraid to go back to Piggy and the littluns Simon volunteers: “Simon pushed his way to Ralph’s elbow. ‘I’ll go if you like. I don’t mind honestly’” (117). His fearlessness shines through and reveals that he is not afraid of the beast.
It takes courage to go out in front of people and do something you know you won't succeed in right away. Homer Hickam had so much courage to try and fail again and again. That's what made him prevail in the end, when he won the scholarship. He also had courage when he stood up to his father, and when he said he didn't want to work in the mine. Homer knew that his father, John would get angry with him if he stood up to him, but he still had the courage to do that.
So by Avi saying yes he was saying that he wouldn't lie but on the other hand he lied so he can prove that he is tough. But by lying he was doing good at the same time because with out lying he would never be able to go for the over night hike. My thought about Avi wanting to be tough is that he believes he is undermined about him being a weakling because
Tell me. How? There will be trouble from this. When a son goes so far away from a father, there can only be trouble.” His father just wanted to raise him with the sense of family and his religion. He wanted to protect him from the bad influences, but he was only scared of his son’s gift because he didn’t know what it meant for him.
It is here that Ralph best demonstrates his superiority for leadership, displaying the most calm of any of the characters and encouraging the others to be confident in their rescue. Ralph is established here not only as a political leader but also as a parental figure whose job is to reassure the scared boys and protect them from their own fears and doubts. Golding continues to present Ralph as a calming, authoritative presence among the boys. When fear sets in among some of the younger boys, only Ralph has the presence to restore order and hope. Despite Piggy's clear thinking and appraisal of their situation, his contentious manner and rude dismissal of the younger boys unfortunately causes his ideas to be dismissed.
Bringing the fire near the pool is very helpful because now they will not have to go to the mountain. Another thing is that having the fire near the pool will avoid the forest from burning. Piggy demonstrates that even though they don’t like him he is still willing to help. Golding demonstrates Piggy’s intelligence is very helpful to the tribe because without him they would not have thought about the things that he thinks
He doesn’t want to be into danger or have his father in danger. He loves his father and he never wants to leave him. He is always scared when they come to a house on the road because there might be some bad people around. He is just a boy and it is natural to feel that way. The boy has to go through so much during this journey that he shouldn’t feel scared anymore.
By not allowing his civilization to slip away, Simon is able to understand what the beast truly is: it is a savage instinct that is inside all of the boys that influences their every decision. Simon also shows morality when he tries to explain to the other boys that the beast does not exist. It would be easier for him to go along with Jack, and blend in with the crowd, but that is not his character. Simon knows that the beast does not exist, and he cannot be swayed away from this belief, because it would be against his moral
