Of Mice and Men – MIssing Section

George – Caring, often frustrated by Lennie.
Sometimes feels Lennie is a burden.
Ultimately he loves his friend.
He says that “guys like us that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world… they ain’t got nothing to look ahead to”. He and Lennie are different because they have each other.

George understands how destructive loneliness can be, saying
“I seen the guys that go around ranches alone. That ain’t no good. They don’t have no fun. After a long time they get mean. They get wantin’ to fight all the time.”
We can see he knows the value of a good friend.
