George was making a sacrifice by following out his responsibility to shoot Lennie instead of letting someone else shoot him. It was an immense sacrifice for George and shows how true their friendship was. Despite George’s approach to Lennie, deep down he truly cares for his friend. Even when Lennie offered to “go off in the hills and live by” himself, George told him that he wanted Lennie to stay with him because he truly does care for Lennie ( Of mice and Men 13).
¨There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship¨- Thomas Aquinas. In the story of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck the two main characters in the book are named George and Lenny. They represent this quote. The book is about George and Lenny and their goal to achieve the american dream by owning their own ranch. George is the leader between the two because Lennie has a smaller brain and can 't comprehend a lot.
Throughout Wiesel’s childhood, his father never played a large role in his life and was described as a “rather unsentimental man” (Wiesel 2). The relationship between Elie Wiesel and his father, before they know the horror that awaits them, is very dull and in no way meaningful. Wiesel’s father does not only have a distant relationship with Weisel, but also with the rest of the family, which Wiesel realizes when he notes, “He [Wiesel’s father] was more concerned with others than with his own family”(2). In a way, Wiesel’s father even acts somewhat selfish when he does not allow young Wiesel to study the cabbala, which
They got no family. They don't belong no place.” Not all dreams come
All of Uncle Nathan’s actions are from what he feels in his heart, however there is good and bad to each decision. To begin, Uncle Nathan decided to save Delia instead of is Finance Eunice, using his heart he proved he truly loved Delia more. The positive in the decision was he saved one of the girls lives, however he lost Eunice who he was going to marry and he never seen Delia again, loosing both girls. When making this quick, traumatizing choice he listened to the first instinct his body told him, which was to save Delia even though the logical choice was to save Eunice. The text proves this saying ““The truth is” Uncle Nathan said, “I had kind of fallen for her””
He overcomes the dreadful and unfit society by staying loyal to his friend Lennie. “Guys like us, that on ranches are the loneliest guys in the world they got no family. They don’t belong no place. They come to a ranch an’ work up a stack and the first thing you know
What it says here in the text about Lennie and George 's friendship is that they are really close because they do things together they help each other out with everything they need and also they like to travel together to different places where they like to be .Another thing about Lennie and George is that they 're traveling around, trying to make ends meet and this is during "The Great Depression" But George and Lennie don 't loose hope because they have this shared idea for the future and they 're going to have a home together so they 're like at peace. And even if Lennie might be slow, he still has heart, and he nurtures George 's vision here. So as far as benefits go, I 'd say having a partner means you get to share the responsibilities.
There are many really great themes in the book Of Mice and Men. The thematic subject is friendship/companionship. The theme this book portrays the most will deal with the character Lennie Small. In John Steinbeck’s story, Of Mice and Men shows that friends stay together until the end. The first reason why I believe the theme I chose is correct because in the story George tells Lennie to stay with him even though Lennie is a bother to him.
Troy 's father didn 't care about the children or his wife, so Troy does his best to care for Cory and Rose. However, like his father, Troy takes care of the family because he 's obligated to, not because he feels any particular affection to them, similar to the way his father didn 't abandon him because he had nowhere to go. He explains this to Cory saying " You live in my house...sleep you behind on my bedclothes...fill you belly up with my food...cause you my son. You my flesh and blood. Not 'cause I like you!
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)
He also puts his life at risk to give George what he wants, for example, Lennie says to George, “If you don ' want me I can go off in the hills and find a cave.” (pg. 12) Lennie is telling George that he could leave him and go somewhere else if he would be happier without him in George’s life. Lennie is thinking of George always first, what he want and what he would be most happiest with. To conclude, Lennie is just as good as a friend to George as George is to Lennie by trying to make George happy and sacrificing many things Lennie loves for George.
In Of Mice and Men, George demonstrates that you can be friends with who ever you want which can make unique friendship and being open minded, because he has a friend that has trouble controlling himself, but George still continued to help him and stay beside him. The story takes back in the day during the American great depression and people struggles to live in America. The two main characters in the story are George who is the sharp eyed hard worker and Lennie who is handicapped and has bad control of himself. George and Lennie are searching for work and Lennie who happens to cause trouble for George which gets in George’s way a lot and because of Lennie they had to leave the town, because they were interviewing job with the manager
“Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but being unable to communicate the things that seem important to you.” This quote by carl jung explains why geroge Milton, needs Lennie smalls in his life. At the beginning of the story George named all the things he could do without lennie but throught the story we see that George really does need Lennie. George keeps Lennie around so he wont be like other ranchers and live a lonely life. Not only does Lennie keep George saine, he also gives George hope, and keeps him human.
From the day that Lennie’s Aunt Clara died and from the day George took Lennie in as a friend George was always there for him. If Lennie did not have George, Lennie would have no one to protect him and save him from all of the bad things that he has done. Despite all of the dangers and problems Lennie got George and himself into, George benefited and also learned from Lennie’s mistakes. George needs his ignorant sidekick as much as Lennie needs George.
