One of the many reasons for george to kill George is that Lennie was a danger to those around him as well as himself. Another reason is that Lennie couldn’t survive with George telling him what and what not to do. The last reason is that if George didn’t kill Lennie, Curly would painfully kill him. Being dangerous for the people around and to himself is more than enough reason kill him. Lennie can’t control his strength, or himself.
An’ then I’ll come back an’ work another month an’ I’ll have fifty bucks more.” Here John Steinbeck uses repetition to make it abundantly clear to the reader that George has forsaken his dream, and chosen to become the lonely farm worker he once felt empathy towards. Although some may argue that George's reaction to the broken dream is not one of grief, but rather one of indifference, as he does not believe in the dream, this is opinion is quickly refuted when we are able to see his belief in the attainability of the dream grow as he discusses the dream with Candy and
The two main characters in this story are George and Lennie, they travel together and yet both express their struggles and fears of being alone. Very early in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, George shares with Lennie how he wishes he were alone. He is one of the few character who actually has someone to keep him from loneliness, yet he wishes to be alone. He has tolerated living and traveling with Lennie for so long that he wishes he could experience what it would be like to be alone. In the same way his partner Lennie threatens him that he will just go up into the mountains and find a cave and live without him.
This strain is not just emotional but also bleeds into the physical realm when Fowler becomes impotent, “She was holding him, wanting him, and he wished he could make love with her but he could not” (Dubus 1136). In an effort to fix a wrong doing against his family Fowler has exacerbated the situation. The killings in the short story, “Killings”, are murders. There is not justification for murder. The killings therefore are not justified.
For example, as George explains a life without Lennie, “‘...I could live so easily...I could take my fifty bucks [at the end of each month] and go into town and get whatever I want’… ‘[But] I want you to stay with me Lennie’” he never mentions anything about saving his money to become a landowner like Lennie and he dream of doing (Steinbeck OMM 11). Although George bottles up his frustration towards Lennie, he draws from this anger to redouble his kindness and drive. Want implies a need so when George says “I want you to stay with me Lennie” he truly means he needs Lennie to stay with him because George realizes he heavily relies on the company of Lennie. Lennie provides further motivation because George knows that Lennie deserves to live on a nice farm where, “‘Ever’body gonna be nice to you [Lennie]. Ain’t gonna be no more trouble,’” (OMM 106).
In 1937, it would have been much different. If someone thought someone else was not how that person was ¨supposed to be¨ then they would not go to school. They would stay at home, and live their lives separate from everyone, but John Steinbeck has a different story to tell. In Of Mice and Men, set in the 1930s, John Steinbeck shows the importance of accepting people, with or without a handicap. In the novel people tend to treat Lennie differently because of his handicap, including Curley, George, and Slim.
His conscience still guilty from the murder he had committed. This feeling of guilt showing that Macbeth still had morals, as he did truly doubt the murder plan and had begun to have second thoughts on it.

The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him. In addition, his thoughts and conflicts refer to his idea that if Caesar becomes king, that he will end up harming or endangering Rome. Brutus believes killing Caesar, results to the only solution to help and protect Rome, which relates back to his conflict. Overall, Brutus’ internal conflict involves deciding to kill Caesar, or not, because he does not necessarily want to kill Caesar, but sees it as the only way to protect Rome and its people. His love for Rome and the Roman people proves greater than his love for Caesar, who he somewhat looks to as a friend.
