Throughout the novella ‘Of Mice and Men’ various themes are explored, a main theme noticed throughout the novella is authority.

The boss is one of many characters who have authority on the ranch because he owns the ranch and is the employer. Authority within the boss is shown when he questions George “what stake you got in this guy?” this shows authority because the boss can question who he wants if he notices any suspicions because it’s his ranch The boss also shows he has authority when Steinbeck says “he wore high-heeled boots” this is a symbol of authority, by wearing high-heeled boots it proves that he is not a labouring man because he is the owner of the ranch. Another reason high-heeled boots may show significant authority is because they make him taller, which makes him higher than the average migrant worker.

Curley also appears to show authority but he lacks respect for the men. Curley does not have natural authority because he is the boss’ son this is the only reason Curley gains authority. The men on the ranch only put up with him because he is the boss’ son, he also tries to fight bigger men “he hates bigger guys” curly likes to fight with bigger guys to gain respect but it makes the others dislike him even more.

Throughout the book many things are used to symbolise authority. A main symbol noticed is that the boss and Curly wear high-heeled boots this gives a sense of authority because it shows that neither of them are labouring men, and the heel gives height to them making them think that they are higher than the average migrant worker. Although the boss and Curly wear high-heeled boots to show their authority, slim does not. Slim doesn’t need to wear high heeled boots because he has natural authority “prince of the ranch” everyone on the ranch respects Slim naturally.

Slim is one of the main men with authority on the ranch he has natural…...

Love Qoutes

...HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? 1. Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck. I love it when you run your fingers through my rugged hair, I love it when you get jealous because other boys will stare, I love it when you call me beautiful and compliment me so, I love it when you seem so confused as if you don't know, Ilove the way you stare at me and look into my eyes, My heart gets so heavy and deep that all the time just flies, I love the way you kiss me so gentle you lips so calm, I love the way you hold my hand and rubb your fingers against my palm, I love it when you wrap your arms around me the way that I felt, When you stare me down and hug me tight I just want to melt, I love your beautiful smile everytime I see it I want to faint, Your laugh is so soothing it heals me like you're a saint, I love the way you whisper to me when someone is nearby, I love it when you say sweet things that make me want to cry, I love the way you look at me with that cute little puppy face, It seems as if you are so sad or simply out of place, I love the way you are so confident in everything you do, But most of all out of everything I love you for being you! “High school isn't about finding your husband...it's about finding your bridesmaids.” “The older I get, the less time I want to spend with the part of the human race that didn't marry me.” There is no such cozy combination as man and wife. “Happy is the man who finds a true......

Kuya

...kay sam at malamang maging 2nd Janine nga yun. Hahaha Malamang, kinukumbinse mo na kong mag-boyfriend dahil sasabihin mong puro na lang ako pag-aaral. Malamang, kasundo mo na sina daizel at iba kong friends. Malamang, kachokaran ka namin ni ate hanggang ngayon. Malamang sinabunutan mo ko nung hindi ako nakauwi minsan. Kung buhay ka ngayon, sinesermunan mo siguro ko araw-araw kasi lagi akong puyat. Hahaha ang dami mong hindi nagawa kuya. Pero alam kong okay ka naman diyan ngayon. Kahit one time lang, kung pwede lang, bumalik kahit one minute na nandito ka with us. kahit magkano, pagiipunan ko talaga. Bumalik ka lang kahit one minute lang, or kahit segundo lng. Gusto lang kitang i-hug ulit. Tapos magte-thank you lang ako, sorry, tapos power ilove you na. tapos gora ka na ulit jan pabalik sa langit. It’s been almost 6 years, I love you.

...imaginations ko. Alam ko, kahit isang linggo na ang nakakalipas mula nun eh hindi yun panaginip. Totoong totoo yung nangyaring yun. Alam na alam ko. I even wrote him a letter after that scene. Tandang tanda ko pa yun. FLASHBACK Wahhhhhhhh, hanggang ngayon hindi parin ako makapaniwala! Hinalikan ako ni Blue! Ganito pala ang pakiramdam! Para akong lumulutang sa langit *O* Napayuko ako dahil hindi ko mapigilan ang ngiti ko. "So that means yes?" Tanong sakin ni Blue na pakiramdam ko ay nakangiti ngayon. "H-ha?" Hinawakan niya yung baba ko at saka unti unting iniharap sakanya. "You're blushing." Sabi niya na ngumiti pa ng nakakaloko. Hinampas ko siya. "Ouch!" - 100 - "Psh." "I love you." *lub.dub.lub.dub* DId... Did... he.. just.. said.. i-ilove you? "So?" Tanong niya. "Ba-bakit?" "Wala man lang---" Hindi ko na pinatapos yung sasabihin niya. Napatigil ako sa pagsalita nang tumunog yung cellphone niya. "Sht. Istorbo." Sabi niya then he picked up the phone at lumayo muna. Pagkabalik niya eh naging cold ang itsura niya. Hindi ko maintindihan. Nahalalata niya siguro na parang nagtataka ako kaya ngumiti din siya sakin agad. "Dannie, I have to go." He said then smiled at me. Hindi na niya ko hinintay sumagot, umalis na siya. Hindi ko alam pero diba dapat kinikilig ako ngayon? Pero parang may mali kasi kanina sa itsura niya eh. Hindi ko alam. Hanggang sa klase hindi ako natahimik kaya nagsulat ako ng letter. They say a kiss is a symbol of true love. May it be? - 101 - Hope......
