Famous quote: Always treat others the way you want to be treated.
Mrs. Jones has a tiny apartment but she has a huge heart. Because she invited Roger who tried to steal from her and took care of him for a night.
While some people see a disappointment others see potential, No one is perfect even though sometimes you might think you are bad, unwanted,and a disappointment doesn't mean your the only one.
The theme wouldn't be kindness if she didn't see potential in Roger to be a better person.
Mrs. Jones was kind to him and instead of scolding him she is kind to him and basically says I understand.
