Kino’s Change in Character
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” (Fredrick Keoniq) This should be the moral of everyone’s lives. The Pearl, is a parable written by John Steinbeck. It is about a man who finds a pearl that changes his and his families’ lives forever.

Kino sighed with satisfaction and that was conversation.” (Steinbeck 585). This shows that they are happy even though they do not talk. Kino and Juana do not need things such as words to express that they are satisfied with the life they have. Another example is when Kino is looking around the brush house and the author says, “He looked at the hanging box where Coyotito slept.

This shows that Kino is content with his life even though he does not have a bed or crib. Hi is happy with what he has and does not need money to fix that. Kino and Juana are happy with just the simple necessities they have....
