UNIVERSAL THEME

Pursue your dreams no matter what it takes

Of mice and men

"He saw lennie lying on the sand. "Got him, by god."
Lennie and George

George and Lennie were best friends and stuck together everywhere they went. Lennie was like a little pup to George, he listened and did everything he was told. This quote was after George had shot Lennie, after the incident of Lennie accidentally killing Curley's wife. George knew he did what he had to as Slim reassured him after. George himself, as well as the others, knew it would be less troublesome without Lennie around.

"With us it ain't like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to who gives a damn about us."

This statement that George made is him explaining how his life with Lennie will be like. George said most ranchers like them don't have a future or anything to look forward to. But with him and Lennie, they got a big future ahead of them. George is saying they are different from the rest of the ranchers and they would be more successful than any of them.

The scarLet ibis

"I'm going to teach you to walk, doodle... all you got to do is try."

The narrator, Doodle's brother, is determined to teach Doodle to walk, since he is ashamed of having a crippled brother. During this part of the story, Doodle often says things about how he is crippled, how he can't walk no matter what, or how he just wanted to give up. The narrator reassured, as well as motivate Doodle, and soon enough, Doodle learned to walk.

Cask of amontiLlado

"THE thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge."

This piece of text from, "The Cask of Amontillado" is Montresor stating he wants revenge on Fortunato. Fortunato's richness insulted Montresor which was the reasoning for his death wish. Later in the story, Montresor lured Fortunato into a crypt with Amontillado wine, then he trapped Fortunato inside of a secret room.

Life

In life there are many obstacles that will get it your way while you are pursuing your dreams. You have to learn how to pass those obstacles, whether it's a person, disability, or a problem. Your life depends on the decisions you make and others around you. Strive for your dreams and make the best of life while you can.

So what?

Everybody has a dream or idea of that they want to be, or do, later in life. This can connect or relate to everyone. Everybody has had the experience of success and failure, but whichever one of these you experience won't be the only time you do. It all depends on how hard you work for your dreams and the decisions you make in life. Some may impact you greatly, while others might not. In my life, I really do care and think about my dreams quite often. I think of what I want to do, how I would do it, and of course, how I would reach it.

All in all, I have learned that no matter who or what is in your way, you must pursue your dreams and make the best of life.
