Joe provides a perfect example of however one conducts oneself in life; one's good nature always asserts itself at the end. With Joe's humane intellect, he is like a father to Pip- giving him guidance, informing him what is respectable and what is erroneous- it is his humanity that makes him incredibly generous and forgiving. However, generosity and forgivingness are just two of Joes's many traits that contribute to his humanity; these characteristics show up numerous times in the novel. One of the best examples of the many humane acts of Joe is illustrated by his reaction to when some food was taken from his house by a convict, on page 41, chapter 9: "'God knows you're welcome to it- so far as it was ever mine. We don't know what you have done, but we wouldn't have you starved to death for it, poor miserable fellow- creature.'"

Unlike many of the prisoners surrounding him who had given up hopes of survival, Guido pranced around the camp with his genuine smile and liveliness about himself. His positive expression and attitude is what afforded him the ability to maintain a functional life. It also gave him, as a father in camp, the presence of mind to be positive for his son despite the tragedies around him. His family and his unique way of living kept him safe when others failed. He knew that at any moment he or his loved ones could be sent to the gas chamber, but this did not change his outward disposition.
The qualities of leadership Shackleton exhibited that resulted in the survival of him and his crew were, having certain obsessions, not being selfish, and always thinking about future consequences from his actions. A person who is selfless, is someone who puts others emotions and/or well being ahead of their own. For Shackleton, the quality of being selfless was key for the survival of Endurance’s crew because, it kept all of the crew feeling equal and that the crew could trust Shackleton with their lives. An example of how Shackleton was a selfless person was, he gave up personal items such as his gold lighter and his bible (given to him by the Queen). By being first to rid himself of non-necessary items, Shackleton showed the crew–even though Shackleton was the boss–that they are all equals.
He also developed creative ways to prevent the prison guards from feeling psychological burdens and victimhood.

John proctor holds his moral standpoint and does not falter into the temptations of selfishness, while Elizabeth would describe honor as how a person lives their lives.

However honor can be defined, one thing is certain; Everyone has some degree of honor in their lives. John Proctor was a man who had internal conflicts that tested his moral values.
Furthermore, Shukhov knows that he is not the only one with a life like his and treats his fellow “zets” with the help and compassion they deserve. He has helped out many of the other zets learn to survive in the work camp and in turn is given more respect than others. In addition, Shukhov, although dehumanized at almost every time of the day, is still able to keep values of his own. Values of respect, to those who have earned it; self pride, so not to be pushed around by just anyone; and even after eight years of facing the bitter cold he will not eat with his hat on. It is Shukhov’s character that kept him alive and sane after eight years in the harsh Stalinist Work Camp.
