Dreams play an important role in our life. They make it more interesting, colorful, exciting and influence it greatly. For some people dreams is a kind of escape from daily routine and their problems. Also dreams inspire us, make us achieve our goals and change our life.

Another good example of how dreams influence the life of people is the dreams of the characters in the novel “Of Mice and Men” by J. Steinbeck. Every character of this book had a dream. First of all, every worker dreamed of having his own piece of land, his own rancho, where he could work for himself and to be happy. This dream connected all the workers together...
