Dreams help people to escape reality.

"Of Men and Mice"

[Candy] said miserably, "You seen what they done to my dog tonight? They says he wasn't no good to himself nor nobody else. When they can me here I wisht somebody'd shoot me. But they won't do nothing like that. I won't have no place to go, an' I can't get no more jobs."
George half-closed his eyes. "I gotta think about that. We was always gonna do it by ourselves." Candy interrupted him, "I'd make a will an' leave my share to you guys in case I kick off, 'cause I ain't got no relatives or nothing…"

This shows that candy is scared at being old because he won't have no job and no where to go.Also this shows that he blinds himself with his dream of having somewhere to call home.

"The necKlace"

She danced with delight, with passion, intoxicated with pleasure, thinking of nothing, in the triumph of her beauty, in the glory of her success, in a sort of cloud of happiness made up of all these tributes, of all the admirations, of all these awakened desires, of this victory so complete and so sweet to a woman's heart.
She learned the rough work of the household, the odious labors of the kitchen. She washed the dishes, wearing out her pink nails on the greasy pots and the bottoms of the pans. She washed the dirty linen, the shirts and the towels, which she dried on a rope; she carried down the garbage to the street every morning, and she carried up the water, pausing for breath on every floor. And, dressed like a woman of the people, she went to the fruiterer, the grocer, the butcher, a basket on her arm, bargaining, insulted, fighting for her wretched money, sou by sou.

These qoutes show she is caught over her dream of being rich she forgets she is a middle class person.Also here losing she jeopardize her future of being rich by losing the necklace and having to work as a poor class person to pay for it.

Martin luther king jr.

“Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”

Matin Luther King Jr was to distracted by making his dream come true without violence that he didn't pay attention to reality that nonviolence didn't solve nothing.

So what?

This apply to most people because people forget to think how there is going to become possible.Also that not all dream can come true because reality crashes in and ruining it.
