The value of patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate, problems, or delay without becoming annoyed or anxious, and the value of caring means displaying kindness and concern for others. Like showing interest to someone. These two values are in the story in different parts and also in different ways, this story makes the readers to be not be afraid of being themselves and makes us feel comfortable with what we think, and with who we are. The author focus a lot on the effects of self reliance, and this makes people to develop and accept their own culture. Self reliance makes us be patient because we must not discriminate any other person and is an example of caring because we must care about ourselves to be self reliance. the fact that he says we are free to practice any religion is an patience, every single person in the world is free to show his culture and be proud of it, being patient with this means respect them, don't judged and as they accept their own culture, we don't have to be afraid of who we are, we must love ourselves, just as Emerson invites us to do with our own culture, Truth is within one’s self. Emerson says that reliance upon institutionalized religion hinders the ability to grow mentally as an individual. Also Emerson mentions that citizens control the government so they have control. He also mentions “History cannot bring enlightenment; only individual searching can.” this sentence is an example of caring, because it show us that we need to search our enlightenment just to let ourselves be happy. Emerson wrote how the community is a distraction to self growth I believe he means with this that community with their distractions and their bad things and with people judging is not a good place to be self reliant cause this type of things affects us. This would help the people to not change their beliefs just because other people aren't patient with them or just didn't care enough about humans. Emerson with makes us think about what might we need to think or what we need to do, without caring about someone else's opinion, he also said that the people don't have to be conformist but they need to look to big things and be happy and always go for more and explore ourselves and personalities. Emerson in this story has the message of being caring everywhere you have to be caring with others and with ourselves, he states many times that is not bad that we are different but we need to be ourselves even if people says that is wrong we truly belief is right. In my opinion, to be self reliant is to be comfortable and happy with who you are and don't let the society changes your way of being, but to reach that we need patience and caring not just with others and ourselves, we need to value what others feels or what they think. I like this story because it really makes me think and analyze many aspects of my life

In the story “The Devil and Tom Walker” there is trustworthiness and thankfulness depending in which character we are talking about. For example Tom is someone in which people trust because of his job, but he is not trustworthy because he is a very selfish person and only cares on gaining money. Tom is not a thankful character because he does not value what he have. He has a wife, a good job, and money. Tom is not trustworthy because on the story, at the end, he does not want to keep his deal with the devil because he is scared, this is why he becomes a religious sadic. I believe the devil is trustworthy because the devil always kept his word on what he said. For example the devil in the bargain with Tom said he would make him richer and so he did. Tom’s wife is not trustworthy because she tried to make the deal with the devil by herself and this is why the devil killed her. Tom´s wife is not thankful because she is as miserable as Tom, with this detail from the story we know she is not happy with her life and she just want more tan what she have. Another reason why Tom and Tom´s wife are not trustworthy is because they do not trust each other and a huge part of a marriage is trust. I believe there is trustworthiness on Tom’s friends because they are thinking the best about Tom, not realizing Tom is leading them to bankruptcy, because they think the best of Tom they are thankful to him. In my opinión this story shows this values and satirizes them, for example, as we read we would suppose Tom and Tom´s wife trust and love each other because they are marriage but is not like that so we do not see trustworthiness and they do not value each other so they are not thankful. Another thing on the story is that shows how people that are always selfish will end alone just as Tom did.
