In the same way, students who are studying this book may look for a true companion in their everyday lives. The book demonstrates that even though George has to make a lot of sacrifices in exchange for their friendship, he is always ready to vouch for Lennie and protect his dream of a better life until the end. This theme is exemplified in Bernard E. Rollins paper on the relationship between George and Lennie and the need for companionship. He writes, “Although loneliness is a prominent theme in the novel, George and Lennie’s unique friendship runs like a red thread through the story and one can read between the lines how valuable this friendship is to both of them. In spite of the fact that George and Lennie’s friendship is not always easy for George to handle because of Lennie’s shortcomings, George is always ready to vouch for Lennie” (Rollins 21).
Govinda is a friend. He is willing to leave everything he knows to stay with Siddhartha. Stronger, however, than his ability to love his friend, is his urge to find some version of the truth he can believe in, and become devoted to. This identifies an archetype one might overlook in Govinda, the Sage. Govinda is a friend, and was created as a supporting character, but there is a parallel longing in Govinda as in Siddhartha, in terms of searching for the truth.
It can be inferred that he will never be able to forgive himself after what he did. This story shows an important life lesson. We can learn from his experience because it teaches us to love others for who they are, not what they can not do. When we care for others despite how they look, we can achieve a better life full of less pride and learn to think about others before we think about
Lennie and George rely on each other in many ways. George announces that even though he may portray through his actions that he seems mad at Lennie, he is never actually mad at him. This symbolizes companionship versus loneliness because it informs the reader that in a companionship there will be things to overcome in order to have a companion versus being lonely. George tells the
Although confucianism and legalism have some similarities, but the differences between the two are amazingly clear. Confucianism enforced harmony, between people while legalism enforced strict following of rules. For confucianism was built on the belief that harmony results when people in society accepted their place in their lives. However, Legalism was built on the fact that all humans are more inclined to do the wrong thing instead of the right thing due to the motivation of self-interest. Confucianism is described through the five key relationships: father to son, elder brother to younger brother, husband to wife, elder friend to younger friend, and ruler to subject.

Clearly Charlie’s true character can define what belonging rightly is because he is being who he truly is. Therefore the film defines belonging as in being true to your own personality and accepting what others think of you. So in other words, not changing for the benefit of others. In conclusion, due to Charlie’s personality altering he then proves that Perks of Being a Wallflower has the clear definitions of what it means to belong and fit-in. Charlie’s personality altered due to his own pressures of trying to make others like him, and in a world view one can see that this is an issue with many teenagers.
I’m trying to prove that George and Lennie’s relationship show us the true meaning of friendship. George and Lennie are great friends because they take care of each other. “But not us and why because I’ve got you and I’ve got you and you’ve got me and that’s why” (Steinbeck 14). This outlines to the topic sentence because they’re saying
68). In book VIII, Aristotle explains the importance of friendship and the meaning of a real friend, “those who wish for their friends’ good for their friends’ sake are friends in the truest sense, since their attitude is determined by what their friends are and by incidental considerations” (p. 66). Besides describing different friendships, he also explains that the way we love our friends and our feelings towards our friends is the same love and feelings we have towards ourselves. “when a good man becomes a friend he becomes a good to the person whose friend he is. Thus, each partner both loves his own good and makes an equal return in the good he wishes for his partner and in the pleasure he gives him” (p.
