One characteristic of Ponyboy Curtis in "The Outsiders" is that he is humble, courageous, and strong. He does not regress or lower himself in order to be popular or successful. He is himself, and this allows him to be special. In one instance, Ponyboy causes some Socs to retreat by brandishing a broken piece of glass at them. While some might see this as an extraordinary act of bravery, especially considering Ponyboy's injuries, he is humble about the act. He says impressively that, "anyone else could have done the same thing." This is one example of why Ponyboy Curtis is an admirable character in the novel.
