For Discussion on 9/24

We’re going to discuss some quotes in class on Monday. You don’t need to do any work on this til we get to class.

  1. “‘A guy needs somebody–to be near him.’ He whined, ‘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,’ he cried, ‘I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an’ he gets sick.'”

  3. “We ain’t got to stay here. We gotta house and chickens an’ fruit trees an’ a place a hunderd times prettier than this. An’ we got fren’s, that’s what we got. Maybe there was a time when we was scared of gettin’ canned, but we ain’t no more. We got our own lan’, and it’s ours, an’ we c’n go to it”
  4. “You’re scared of each other, that’s what. Ever’one of you’s scared the rest is goin’ to get something on you.”
  5. “I think I knowed from the very first. I think I knowed we’d never do her. He usta like to hear about it so much I got to thinking maybe we would.”
