658 words - 3 pages

OF MICE AND MEN "Friendships" The friendship Lennie and George had in Of Mice and Men is incomparable to most friendships today. They were two very different people brought together by fate. Through all the hardships that they've been through, they still managed to pull through it all, that is, until it came to the very end.Lennie and George are polar opposites. Lennie a muscular guy with no sense of what is going on around him, relies purely on what George tells him to do. Lennie is all brute strength without a hint of intelligence in his body. George on the other hand is a very knowledgeable man. George has hopes and aspirations he wants to fulfill. He is a man that is able to fend for, and is not dependant on anyone but himself. George may not be as strong as Lennie, but Lennie ...view middle of the document...

They are both helping each other, That's what a good friendship should be doing. The person shouldn't depend on the other too much, and not get anything back, but instead balance each other out. A good friendship should help each other out through everything, even if it means doing what hurts to do what's right for the other.Lennie and George had a friendship like no other, and when it came down to the end of things their everlasting friendship was proven to be true. George knew what was best for his friend, although he knew that it would hurt him, he knew that it had to be done. George, being the friend that he was, did not want Lennie to suffer a great deal, and he knew that if Curly got a hold of Lennie he would be suffering a great deal. George wanted to prevent his friend from suffering so much, and so he decided that it would be better if he shot his own friend. This was not an easy task for George to do, but he knew he had to do it. But, he did not do this in a cold blooded murder, but he allowed Lennie to get into a happy zone before he shot the trigger. This is proof that George and Lennie were the best of friends, and that they would remain together till in came to the end.Lennie and George were two very different characters, but they were brought together by fate. Through fate they were able to learn from each other, and help balance out each other's lives. Lennie with his brute strength impressed employers, while George helped Lennie control that strength since Lennie couldn't do it on his own. When it came down to the wire, it is proven that George and Lennie had no ordinary friendship. George knew what he had to do, although it would hurt him, because he knew it was best for his friend. That's what friendship is about, doing what's best for the other, even if in the end it winds up hurting even yourself.
