Friendship is what makes the world go round. In the book “Of Mice & Men” by John Steinbeck we learn about friendship, support, and the dream. George and Lennie’s Relationship show us the true meaning of friendship. In the novella George and Lennie take care of one another. “ Because I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that’s why” ( Steinbeck 14). This proves that they take care of one another because they are always looking after one another. Another point in the story I’d like to quote is , “Lennie!

Steinbeck states “We’re gonna get the jack together and we’re gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an’ a cow and some pigs and- “-An live off the fatta the lan’,” Lennie shouted(Steinbeck 14). This proves that they are both striving after the dream together because they get each other excited about a dream that may never happen. Steinbeck also states “ “ Georg-you asleep” “No. Whatta you want?” “Let’s have different color rabbits, George.” “Sure we will,” George said sleepily” (Steinbeck 16). This proves my point because they are planning for the future together. Lastly the author states “ In one month. Right squack in one month Know what m gon’ta do? I’m gon’ta write to them old people that owns the place that we’ll take it…” (Steinbeck 61). this shows my point in the story because they are finally chasing their dream after all those times talking about it. With these quotes I have reason to believe that chasing after their dream together shows how strong their friendship is to them and how much they truly care about each
