Two examples of this are the crow in “The Crow and the Pitcher” and the magical child from “The Price of Jasmines and Liles. ” In the “The Crow and the Pitcher,” the crow was dehydrated, so one day the crow saw a pitcher with water in it. He tried to get a hold of the water but couldn’t reach it. The crow then decided to drop pebbles in the pitcher to make the water rise. The crow kept dropping pebble after pebble until the water reached to the top so the crow could quench his thirst. In “The Price of Jasmines and Liles,” the magical child was born blessed.
She would turn drops of water into beads of gold. Also whenever she spoke, jasmines and liles fell from her mouth. These powers made her parents wealthy. The prince found out about her and wanted to marry her so she traveled to the prince with her Aunt. As she was walking, she was getting dehydrated. Her aunt told her if wanted water than she would have to pluck her eyes out. She agreed because she was thirsty. The magical child became blind but was still spreading joy. She was determined to get her eye sight back by praying to Allah which is her God.
Since she never gave up, she was blessed with two eyes from an old man who was selling her liles and jasmines in exchange for eyes. Another important characteristic of praiseworthiness is bravery. Bravery is important because when people are brave then they have a sense of self- confidence in what they are doing. Two examples of this are Androcles from “Androcles and the Lion” and the old rabbit from “The Foolish Lion and the Clever Rabbit. ” In “Androcles and the Lion,” Androcles escaped from his master into the forest and came upon a lion. He was scared but didn’t run away.
Androcles saw the lion in pain, so he approached him to see what happened. He saw a thorn stuck in the lion’s paw and helped him get it out and then bounded up the Lion. In “The Foolish Lion and the Clever Rabbit,” the animals in the forest were getting killed by a cruel lion, so one day the animals of the forest decided to sacrifice the old rabbit. He was brave to take his time nibbling on the bush for the lion to get mad and try to attack him. The rabbit was brave enough to approach the lion and tell him there was another lion that was killing his animals.
The lion got mad and told the rabbit to show him where the other lion lived. The rabbit told the lion to a well and told him that he lived down there. The lion believed him and jumped into the well and died. A third important characteristic of praiseworthiness is the ability to be hardworking. Being hardworking is important because it helps an individuals’ achieve their goals. Two examples of this are Aiwa from “The Black Cloth” and the ant from “The Ant and the Grasshopper. ” In the “The Black Cloth,” Aiwa was a happy child who always smiled.
Her stepmother didn’t like her at all. She would insult Aiwa whenever she smiled. Her stepmother wanted to get rid of Aiwa, so she gave her a black cloth and told her not to come home until she made the black cloth white. On her journey of fulfilling her stepmother’s wishes, Aiwa would get blisters by constantly washing the black cloth to make it white. She didn’t go home until she fulfilled her stepmother’s wish. Her mother was looking over her and gave her a white cloth to bring back to her stepmother. In “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” the ant was storing up food for the winter.
He would go back and forth carrying kernel of corn to his nest. He was making sure he had enough food in the nest for the winter. When winter came, ant had plenty of food to eat. Determination, bravery, and being hardworking are all important characteristics of praiseworthiness They would have confidence with doing things they thought they couldn’t do. It help’s individuals’ mental capability to improve their skills. . Praiseworthiness will raise an individual’s confidence levels and keep up their self-esteem.
