“Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.” The quote from Euripides, ancient Greek philosopher. It means that real friends stick together in good and especially in bad times. Real friends are needed, they are our support in the most difficult times and they help us accomplish different things. A person without friends is a really miserable individual. The book Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and the movie Ice Age directed by Chris Wedge, share similar themes about friendship and how it is tested, but they also have different themes, like the time and the end. The general message of these pieces is similar because they both concentrate on friendship and how important it really is. Mannie and Sid’s friendship is really special even if it is not a traditional one. “That’s what you do in a herd, you look out for each other.”(Ice Age quotes)
It is visible that this group of friends care a lot about each other. They always stick together and surpass obstacles no matter how challenging they can be. Also in Of Mice and Men George cares a lot about Lennie and does not want anything bad to happen to him. “Hide in the brush till I come for you. Can you remember that?”(15) George was really afraid that Lennie will get in a trouble and mess everything up. As a result he had to be on the alert and make sure nothing bad will not happen. Accordingly to these facts friendship means a lot to them and they would do everything to maintain it.
