This means that he recognises that he cannot bring back his youth as hard as he tries to or wants to. When Paul was sitting there thinking about his past with his books, “the breath of desire then arose from-the books, [it] shall fill [him] again-it shall bring back the lost eagerness of [his] youth.”(171).

George realized his dreams would never come true after being blinded by his own ambition to become successful for quite a while. Steinbeck uses motif and irony to show that chasing the american dream leads to ones misjudgement of reality.
