Curley's Wife Says :
I'm Curley's Wife, I flirt with guys around the ranch to make my husband jealous. Yes, I know they call me a 'tart' or "jailbait", but just because I wear some make up, paint my finger nails red, wear red shoes with ostrich feathers and flirt with guys around the ranch doesn't make me a tart.
Quote from Candy :
"Well-hell! I had him so long. Had him since he was a pup. I herded sheep with him." He said proudly, "You wouldn't think it to look at him now, but he was the best damn sheep dog I ever seen."
Quote from Lennie :
" An' live off the fatta the lan' "
Quote from George :
"We travel together," said George coldly.
Quote frm Curley :
"I’ll try to catch him," said Curley.
Quote from Curley's Wife :
"I tell you I ain't used to livin' like this. I coulda made somethin' of myself." She said darkly,
Slim says :
I am slim, I have more dignity than 100 men combined . I am tall, young and wise. I am the prince of the ranch, I am a jerk-line skinner capable of
driving up two twenty
mules in a single line.
I hold one of the highest
authorities within the
ranch and am dearly
respected by all, even by Curley.
Quote from Slim:
"He ain't mean," said Slim. "I can tell a mean guy from a mile off."
Crooks says :
I am Crooks, weird name you say?
No, I am not a criminal. I was named after I got a crooked back from a kick of a horse. I am the only african american man in the ranch, I have my own place in the barn with the ranch animals. I was once warned by Curley's wife that if she wanted to, she could have me lynched anytime, she 'put me in my place'. Interestingly enough, only Lennie didn't notice the color of my skin.
Quote from Crooks and the book :
Crooks scowled, but Lennie's disarming smile defeated him. "Come on in and set a while," Crooks said. "'Long as you won't get out and leave me alone, you might as well set down." His tone was a little more friendly.
Carlson Says :
I shot Candy's old sheep
dog, I could not bare the stench that dog let out, so I convinced Candy and shot the dog mercifully.
My luger didn't only work for that, let's not forget that George stole my Luger to kill Lennie later on.
