Dreams- leonine and George tO own their own land and 'tend to the rabbits'
Loneliness - candy only has his dog as a companion in the beginning of the novel. Curlews wife's the only woman. The ranch lifestyle was very lonely, migrant workers would travel alone
Handicaps- all of the main characters have a handicap- mental or physical.
George's is different but still a handicap as he is dragged down but Leanne but this shows he isnresponsible as he keeps his promise to aunt Clara
Discrimination- curlews wife 'tart' '********' 'tramp' the only woman on the ranch. Doesn't get named - seen as possession to Curley. Crooks- segregated because he is black
Relationships - Leanne relies on George as g is leader. They have a paternal relationship but I'm some ways George reliesn lennie for companionship

Loads more but those are the main ones :) sorry its brief!
