They both sacrificed their most prized possessions for the other. Jim Della Conflict Della only has $1.87 to buy Jim a Christmas Present Quotes Conflict Johnsy says that she will die when the last leaf on the ivy vine falls. Quotes "Didn't you ever wonder why it never fluttered or moved when the wind blew? Ah, darling, it's Behrman's masterpiece-he painted it there the night that the last leaf fell." Quotes "...let it be said that of all who give gifts, these two were the wisest." I liked this quote because I think that they were very wise in giving their gifts. I liked this quote because Johnsy learns that the leaf did fall, but Behrman painted another to make her stay alive. O. Henry William Sydney Porter Was born in North Carolina in 1862.
