What Lennie did showed the had was courageous. He knew what he was doing was wrong, but had to stand up for himself because he was hurt. In today's society people could be very judgemental of a person having a mental disability. What Lennie did was to prove that people shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Anyone could show courageous no matter how different people are from one another.
From society being scared of it, how it was uncharted because of that, and also how someone like Equality 7-2521 thrived and became a different and stronger person from being alone in nature. The type of society that he (Equality 7-2521) lives in is very strict. He couldn’t be who he wanted to be or do what he wanted to do, because if he did then he would get punished for it. I’m sure that when he got exiled from society he was probably scared, but at the same time was relieved or curious to what else was out there. He couldn’t do much in society.
When asked what someone wants in a friend, a typical response would be loyalty. Best friends can not have a long term relationship without loyalty to one another, so people look for loyalty in a friend. However, loyalty comes with a cost. There are consequences of being loyal to others, like selflessness, devotion to the friendship, and more. Throughout Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, loyalty to others causes significant consequences because it can either result in harming oneself from selflessness, or abrupt betrayal.
'I don't know why. Maybe ever'body in the whole damn world is scared of each other. '” The reason lennie says that is because he has George and he doesn't need anyone else . If George didn't have Lennie he would be lonely and same goes for Lennie. Without George Lennie would not be able to get a job because of his disabilities and he wouldn't be able to keep Lennie to not do anything stupid.
Emotions are a very powerful human instinct that drives our thought processes and our actions. This can lead a person to carry out positive or negative acts with different consequences. No one is perfect, and neither is the character George in Of Mice and Men. George treats Lennie with the love and respect he would give a son. He cannot be blamed for treating Lennie badly just from a few words throughout the book.
Before his surgery, Miss Kinnian said he tried very hard, but in the first few,“progris riports” (page 190), he does not spell greatly, despite his motivation to do so. It is only when he gains intelligence, that he can. However, all these arguments aren’t valid, because without motivation, Charlie wouldn’t have even been chosen for the surgery. Overall, though some may disagree, possessing motivation really is far more important than intelligence. If someone doesn’t have motivation to use it, intelligence has no purpose, and is therefore useless.
“My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to be feared than loved”. A ruler who has relied most of his energy towards forming friendships and confiding in other men 's promises, and neglected to prepare other defences, will be ruined. A friendship that is acquired through monetary values, and not through greatness, are within themselves unreliable when they are needed. When it comes to the military approach, it is best not to consider the harshness because armies are not kept united and prepared for action unless their leader is harsh. In these
Chappie faced many disappointments during his life, and yet he was still able to continue hoping that things would get better. This ability to hope for better redeems Chappie in the eyes of the reader. It is important to have this quality as Chappie starts off as a very unsympathetic character, but with his ability to continue moving forward, the reader is able to do the same with the character. The issue with categorizing Chappie as an anti-hero lies in the fact that he does not do anything that would make him a hero instead of the protagonist that he is. He isn't working for any goal or ideal at any point in the story.
Their relationship is really weird because nobody really understands why George takes care of Lennie, but for him Lennie is like a responsibility and also means companion. This is reflected when George said this to Lennie: “No, Lennie, I ain’t mad. I never been mad, and I aint now. That’s a thing I want you to know.” Lennie loves George, he is like a role model for him and he admires him. In the novel that is demonstrated when Lennie says to George: “But I would eat none, I’d leave it all for you George.” With those words Lennie demonstrates the admiration and loyalty he has for his best friend.
His lack of self confidence in creating his own identity holds him back. Given he had no social rule book to follow he allows societies general norms to guide him. “As a society, it seems sometimes that we have no desire to grow. Any hint at change is met with aggression.
