Despite what hardships may come, you should always be there for a friend and do what’s best for them. In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, George does just that for his best and only friend Lennie. Most guys like them don’t have friends, but they have a unique friendship where George acts as a brother to Lennie and tries to help him. They both share the same dream of owning a house, but George is forced to put it aside in order to do what’s best for his friend. George continually sacrifices his own happiness to take care of Lennie.
It was well known by a few that Lennie would never do anything to hurt a single soul. Lennie tried his best to stay out of trouble and for the most part, it worked.In Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie often talk about their plan to buy a little house and let all their worries drift away from them, but in the end it doesn’t work out that way. Their dream floats away due to an incident that caused Lennie to be killed. John Steinbeck was smart in his way of quick thinking and connected Of Mice and Men to the poem written by Robert Burns. In the second to last sentence in the second to last stanza Robert Burns writes, “The best-laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men/Gang aft agley” (Burns 39), which translates to how to farmer believed the mouse he had ended up killing had all these plans, but in the end wasn’t allowed to fulfill them due to his death, similar to Lennie.
A father must be there for the family to lean on, they have to be the core of the family. Without each of these traits a dad is not good at being a father.

In the beginning of the novel, Baba was seen as a hero and a courageous person because he was always helping others and lived by his own moral code, but once his secret was out and Amir realizes that Baba was filled with remorse, Amir saw him differently. To Amir, his childhood seemed like a lie but at the same time, made more sense. An example from the novel is in chapter 18, when Amir says; “How could I have been so blind? The signs had been there for me to see all along [...] I remembered the day we were planting tulips, when I had asked Baba if he’d ever consider getting new servants. Hassan’s not going anywhere, he’d barked.
The theme Of Mice and Men is the true friendship. George protects Lennie until the very end. Even though taking Lennie’s life while he was talking about his love for rabbits was hard on George, he know things would be worse on Lennie if Curley was the one to find him. George love and care for Lennie came before any discomfort of his
Every human deep down needs the feeling of being wanted or accepted to be happy. Without these feelings it makes life very hard and most people who don’t feel this way may stop living. And in William Golding’s book The Lord of the Flies, there is no exception. A recurring theme in Lord of the Flies is that everyone wants to be apart of the big group because they fear not being accepted and will do what the group does, just to stay in it. One example of people doing things the group does to stay in it is how everybody makes fun of piggy.
In Of Mice And Men, strong influences of others forces characters to let go. Candy does not want Carlson to kill his dog, and George certainly doesn’t want to kill Lennie. However, they are both nearly forced to because of the fierce influence others have. It is crazy to think about just how much others can impact someone's
Based on the above definition, the novel Of Mice and Men is a tragedy because Lennie can be considered a basically good person because he always attempts to do the right things, such as on page 43 when he explains how he didn’t intend to hurt the pups but that he just wanted to pet them. The novel Of Mice and Men can also be considered a tragedy because Lennie’s death on page 106 provokes the emotions of pity and fear in the reader. However, based on the above definition, the novel Of Mice and Men is not a tragedy because Lennie is not important to society.
He never questions himself whether or not to give food to Filippo, nor not keeping his promises of cleaning Filippo and passing on his mother’s message of love to him. Pino was the main character that has betrayed his son: “If you go back there I 'll give you the thrashing of your life” (Pino) - page 156. As compared to ‘I’m Not Scared’, Lennie’s innocence is shown in ‘Of Mice and Men’. Lennie’s disability makes him childlike; with a child’s innocence he likes to pet soft things and tend animals. Petting them made Lennie happier - Lennie wanted to be an owner of something he desires; however, George did not allow Lennie to have them: “I wasn’t doin’ nothing bad with it, George.
(Golding 104) There's nothing to be afraid of, says Piggy unless we start to fear other people. Piggy is reassuring the other boys on the island that "the only thing to fear is fear itself". Piggy has faith in other people to carry their own weight. He even says that his "mama" raised him to expect a lot from others, and he is often let down. Piggy originally wanted to be the leader of the island of boys, but the boys voted for Ralph because of his fair hair.
Lennie cares about George. Lennie always wanted to be with George because, he needed a companion, but he may have trusted him a bit too much. “I turn to Lennie and say jump in and he jumps, couldn’t swim a stroke. He damn near drowned. "(Steinbeck, 40) Lennie is dumb, but listens to George because he trusts him and Lennie gets hurt and doesn’t get mad at George.

In the text “to kill a Mockingbird” Áticas is the symbol of justice because he always does the right thing according to his morals and never lets anything otherwise be acceptable.

I think the whole lesson of this book was that violence was bad because every time someone fought it ended really badly. This book showed that even though violence seems easy and, you can easily sort things out with a fight it will come with worse consequences. The greasers always fought, and the Socs always jumped but in the end we saw how both of these resulted in two deaths, and a bad fire. In the end both the socs and greasers both realized that fighting was bad, and throughout the book we see ponyboy question why he fights. Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different.
Christopher does, he experiences a lot which changes he attitude towards people. Lennie is mentally retarded, which can be seen in his actions; he loves to pet soft things and is very faithful to George, ‘I do leave it all for you’. Christopher is also very faithful towards his father until he discovers that his father lied to him about his mother dying. They are both very curious as you can read in the table above. You could say that Christopher is more curious than Lennie, because Christopher wanted to investigate who killed Wellington even though his father told him not to.
