“The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” – The saying is adapted from a line in “To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns.

How does this relate to our book?

It seems that in the book when Lennie, George, and Candy are getting close to their dreams of a house of their own and things are looking up things take a turn for the worse and then they go bad.

George and Lennie try to work for enough money to buy their own farm. When Lennie kills Curlies wife , he messes up everything.

I agree with skatergirl55 because you can’t always expect everythings going to turn out ok.

It relats to the book because no matter how carefully you plan something, it can always go worng because things happen and you can’t help it

Comment by cghirohito

This saying by Robert Burns relates to this book because when everyone in this book, such as Lennie,George,Candy, Curly and Curly’s wife,etc. try to accomplish sometime or persue a dream it seems they are always so close but let so far then sometime happens in their lives and the dream is ruined.

It relates to the book because George and Lennie had this big plan to buy a house of thier own but something always goes wrong because Lennie is always getting into trouble.

This saying relates to this book because throughout the book we were told of plans and ideas that were supposed to happen but never did. For example the dream of George and Lennie and Candy’s farm never ended up coming true.

Comment by rsborn

When George, Lennie, and Candy finally got close to their dream and could make it a reality, they couldn’t accomplish it. Most of their plans went away from success.

Most of there plans that they make usually never follow through like there plan to get a ranch and get money.

Comment by swgama

This quote goes well with the book because in the book we see how Lennie and George make all of these great plans such as working on the ranch and getting their own farm and buying there own land and as we come to see all of these plans they hope will work out, work out very unexpectedly.

Lennie and George’s plan gets foiled because of lennie, and croooks said that no man ever achieved their dream.

Comment by lilfragale1723

because even though the plans have been thought through carefully and even they were really close to have their dream come true
but tht doesnt mean it still cnt be ruined
