"Of Mice and Men"

By John Steinbeck

"You an' me can go there an, live nice, can't we, George? Can't we?" Before George answered, Candy dropped his head and looked down at the hay. He knew." (Page 94)

In the story, George and Lennie have a big dream and that is to have their very own place. Throughout the story a man named Candy is also believing that this very dream will come true. However, in the end Lennie does something that causes the whole dream to be destroyed. Even if these men were working hard to get money and as well stay out of trouble they still weren't able to reach their dream.

"The Scarlet ibis"

By James Hurst

"Doodle was five years old when I turned 13. I was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn't walk, so I set out to teach him. We were down in Old Woman Swamp. "I'm going to teach you to walk, Doodle," I said." (Paragraph 11)

This also contributes to the theme because their is a dream that doesn't necessarily come out successful. The narrator is ashamed of having a brother who is not able to do normal things causing him to try and get Doodle to walk. Doodle also strives to reach the brothers expectations. However, in the end Doodle ends up dying.


In the Titanic, the titanic was a sign of technological advancement. The titanic was built as a dream. It was built to stand out and have a profitable career. However, this dream ship was not able to take another trip as it had hit an iceberg.

"So what?" Impact

No matter how big your dream is or how much determination you put in a dream they may still never happen. Your dreams may never come true because of the way you approach your dream and the choices you make in life. You must work really hard and be careful on what you do because believe it or not they can turn out affecting your future and dreams. Also, anything can happen that causes you to not be able to reach them. As of that, a person can try to hard for a dream, but in the end it will never be true.
