The reason why the narrator wouldn’t help Doodle down before he touched his casket was because he wanted to show him who was in control. On the other hand, the narrator also shows his pride in a more positive light when he encourages Doodle to keep trying even though he fails repeatedly, “‘Oh yes you can, Doodle,’ I said. ‘All you got to do is try. Now come on,’ and I hauled him up once more” (Hurst 776). The narrator does appear to be the normal supportive big brother, until he states the real reason why Doodle walked, “Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother” (Hurst 777).
Doodle’s brother taught him how to walk and many other useful skills. He only did it, however, for himself and not Doodle. "Doodle told them it was I who taught him to walk, so everyone wanted to hug me and I began to cry. They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride who's slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices; and that Doodle only walked because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” (347) Doodle's big brother only taught Doodle how to walk because he was embarrassed and ashamed of him. Doodle's big brother's fear of being made fun of led him to being ashamed of his little brother.

Most unfortunate events are triggered by other events, but most would agree that the unfortunate events that took place in Job’s life were undeserved. Not only does Job have to deal with cruel punishment he also loses his children. This could cause anyone to become weak spiritually and physically. Only a heroic individual recuperate from this magnitude of misfortune. After reading Job, some wonder how someone so good could suffer so much, but perhaps the greatest lesson we can learn from the Book of Job is to never give up.
Once he decided to join, he informs all of his friends about the exciting news until Neil’s father, Mr. Perry, gets word and demands for his son’s private attention out in a nearby hallway. For the majority of Neil’s life, choices have been made for him. He’s been living out the ideas of Thoreau, animating a "life of quiet desperation” and can’t seem to “suck the marrow” out of life. Mr. Perry’s academic expectations of his son are so high not even Neil is convinced that he’ll fulfill them with a cheerful heart. Perry’s friends attempt to comfort him shortly after the brief argument between himself and his father, but being “future bankers and lawyers”, Neil believes that they’re in the same boat, unable to tell him any different.
Dr. Samuel mentions examples of success oriented narcissism on his experience in life with his friends. When they try to avoid him because they realized that could not control him anymore. All of this examples and descriptions of extremes narcissism that Dr Samuel describes on his articles are helpful to have an idea of narcissism. In my opinion, based on the article and video by Dr. Sam narcissism personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an exaggerated sense of their own important and a deep need for admiration. This behavior starts on his or her childhood, and they emotionally stuck at the time of his major trauma.
Jesus Jauregui Jr Mr. Joham AP Literature/Period 3 8 February 2012 Invisible Man “Better late than never” is a famous quote which means it is better to do or know something late rather than to never do or hear something. This quote could perfectly be applied to Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man. In it, the nameless narrator is constantly learning vital information after he acts. For example, the narrator got in trouble for taking Mr. Norton to go see Trueblood and to the Golden Day. He did not realize that Dr. Bledsoe would get mad at him because he was only doing what Mr. Norton told him to do.
Never told that the mirror, like shooting walnuts at the neighbour’s dog, was always my idea." "If I hadn't seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d never believe he's my son." *Baba is somehow ashamed to have Amir as a son, he's sceptical because they are so different and Amir is like his opposite in so many ways. "You are right, Agha. But perhaps you didn't notice that I’m the one holding the slingshots."
When George Rutaganda told him that “soon all the Tutsi would be dead”, Paul was in denial of the possibility. He continued to tell his wife that everything would be okay because that is what he believed. When the war was happening, Paul was still able to laugh with his wife because he was using a repression mechanism. Paul pushed everything about the war and deaths out of his head, which helped him adapt to the situation differently than the people around him. Carver, Scheier and Weintraub (1989), stated that coping strategies remain fixed for long period of time.
