George and Lennie have always dreamed about "Living off the fat of the land" this was inspiring to George and Lennie because they didn't want to be stuck working on other employers farms for their whole life. George and Lennie were going to have a little house with a neat fireplace, they would have a milking cow and when they milked it the cream would be so thick they could cut it just like butter. They would have a little garden, and five acres of land to live on, and when they didn't want to work they wouldn't.

This dream was demolished when Lennie murdered Curley's wife. Lennie had to run away just like Simba from the Lion King after he thought that he had murdered his father. Except for he didn't make an awesome comeback and take over the kingdom he just got obliterated by his best friend George.

Candy suspected that he was going to get canned soon so he knew had to do something. At the moment that Lennie and George articulated their feelings on where they were going to live he decided that was a good idea and it soon became his dream too.

Now Candy is probably just going to die somewhere because some socially incompatible man decided to take the neck right out of Curley's wife's neck. You can find where all of the dreams are destroyed in the last chapter when Lennie kills Curley's wife, as well as when George kills Lennie. This goes to show that the moral of this story is when you mess up because you aren't paying attention. Not only can you affect your life, but you can also have a big impact on other people's lives. Don't do something that you can't take back, and don't do something you will have regrets for, especially if it can hurt someone else's life. You don't want to go around destroying other people's dreams, so make sure that you can stay out of trouble, and not in the way Lennie
