    Does anyone have any important quotations etc to help with revision based on Of mice and men?

    "Chat **** get banged" - Jamie Vardy, who appears when it becomes apparent that the American Dream is non-existent. Moreover, this idea is reinforced through George's use of colours to describe the rabbits; [get your book out and find the quote to support this].

    Point 1: Steinbeck not Steinback

    Point 2: Heres some quotes:

    Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don’t belong no place - George (one of the most important quotes on loneliness)

    A guy needs somebody-to be near him. A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Don't make no difference who the guy is, long's he's with you. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an' he gets sick" (again another smashing quote from Crooks on loneliness)

    "with a majesty achieved only by royalty and master craftsmen. He was a jerk-line skinner, the prince of the ranch, capable of driving ten, sixteen, even twenty mules with a single line to the leaders." - Quote about slim (obviously very skilled)

    Here's just a few, there are tons more, just have a read at the book!

    Try getting a few quotes for each character...

    Good luck!

    (p.s. A great site is cliff notes and search of mice and men)
