The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Individual vs. Society Quotes 4-7 Quotes 8-10 "Then, says I, what's the use you learning to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same? I was stuck." But I reckon I got to light out for the territory
ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she’s going
to adopt me and sivilize me, and I can’t stand it.
I been there before.

"Just because your taught that something's right and everyone believes it's right, it don't make it right." "Call me a low down abolitionist and despise me for keeping mum." "Then she told me all about the bad place - because I wanted him and I to be together. "When you got to the table you couldn't go right to eating - anything the matter with them." "The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me." "All right, then, I'll go to hell - and tore it up." "I got into my old rags and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied." "Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don't. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft." Quotes 1-3 Throughout the whole novel Huck struggles with the decision of turning in Jim. In society keeping a slave from their owner would be completely wrong, but Huck does not necessarily feel the same way. Huck sees Jim as his friend and feels he should be free. In this specific quote Huck makes his decision on turning Jim in. Huck states that he would rather go to hell than turn in his friend. This is completely against the morals of society but Huck does not care anymore. This quote shows Huck's contrast in beliefs on appearance. The Widow Douglas makes herself appear as very proper and elegant; and she makes sure Huck does the same. Although Huck goes along with what she says, he prefers to dress in his rags and be comfortable whenever he can. Huck believes your appearance shouldn't say anything about the person you are, whereas society believes you should dress the way you wish to be perceived. By: Miranda Morey, Amanda Franco, Skylar Kitchen, Mark Foglietta Throughout the book Huckleberry Finn, Huck struggles with his beliefs against the morals of society Huck's views on the ways of life contrast greatly with societies. In Huck's town everyone is in each other's business and no one goes without being talked about. In this specific scene Huck has left the battle between the Shepherdson's and Grangerford's. Huck disagrees strongly with the acts of violence that have taken place and finally feels "free." Huck's idea of living is easy going and comfortable; as life is for him on a raft. This quote shows how Huck's thoughts on religion vary greatly from the majority of society. In Huck's town, religion is very important and is a part of everyday life such as eating. In this specific scene the Widow Douglas talks to Huck about heaven and hell. Huck is very naive and doesn't think religion has any significance. In this quote Huck claims he would want to go to hell just to be with Tom. This quote continues with Huck's beliefs towards slavery. In this specific scene Huck says he will be seen as an "abolitionist" and will be despised if people find out he kept Jim. As known from reading the book Huck decides to keep Jim free and not turn him in. This quote shows how strongly Huck feels against slavery. As well this scene shows Huck will go against society to protect his friend, no matter the repercussions. This quote shows Huck's different view on what it means to be "sivilized." In the eyes of Widow Douglas, being sivilized means being proper and intellectual. Huck does not necessarily believe in being sivilized nor could he ever remember being it prior to living with the widow. Huck loved to live his life as a free, mindless boy but the Widow Douglas made that nearly impossible. In this quote Huck expresses his belief that the Widow Douglas sivilized him, without considering his feeling while doing so. This quote continues with Huck's disagreement on religion. In this scene Huck talks about grace. Saying grace has much importance to the Widow Douglas, as does religion in general. Although Huck takes part in grace every meal it has no real meaning to him. Huck's views on religion vary tremendously compared to those of the town's people. The majority of the town feels that religion has a direct link to the outcome of ones life. Huck, being young and innocent, sees no meaning to religion and doesn't think it impacts ones life. Throughout the novel Huck struggles with his views on the difference between right and wrong. In this specific quote Huck explains his confusion claiming there is no trouble doing wrong; so why not do it? The main struggle Huck has between right and wrong comes into play when thinking about Jim. Huck knows that freeing a slave is "morally wrong" but has come to the point where that does not matter to him anymore. He goes back and forth throughout the whole novel, being stuck on whether to turn Jim in or not. As the novel comes to a conclusion Huck goes with what's "morally right" in his eyes, although it is very different than the morals of society. This quote continues with Huck's struggle between right and wrong. In Huck's society slavery is taught as "right" and everyone believes it's "right." This is what Huck means by "doesn't mean it's right." Although Huck is taught that slavery is fine he does not see it that way at all. By building a relationship with Jim, Huck essentially breaks away from the views of society and creates his own beliefs and principles. This quote has much significance in Huck's views on being "sivilized." As he states he "can't stand" being sivilized. Aunt Sally's intentions of Huck are turning him into the everyday boy of society with; religion, nice appearance, and an education. Huck on the other hand see's no importance to these "essential" components in society. As the book comes to an end Huck succeeds at splitting from the "rights" and "wrongs" of society. Huck grows tremendously as a character and no longer puts others beliefs over his own.
