The theme pride.
"The Scarlet Ibis" by James Hurst illustrates how pride is something that can make people do harmful things.
"When Doodle was five years old he couldn't walk,I was embarrassed having a brother who can't walk so,I sought out to teach him." (204)
"They did not know I did it for myself; that pride whose slave I was, spoken louder than all their voices an that Doodle only walked because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother. (206)"
"I should have admitted defeat, but my pride wouldn't let me. (209)"
"I did not know then that pride is a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death. (204)"
