"S'pose you didn't have nobody. S'pose you couldn't go into the bunk house and play rummy 'cause you was black. How'd you like that? S'pose you had to sit out here an' read books. Sure you could play horseshoes till it got dark, but then you got to read books. Books ain't no good. 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" (80).

dpo you know 2 other ones?

You can separate them, he states quite a few reasons in his little speech to Lennie. This is the point where Crooks really explains his loneliness.

okay Thanks!

the meaning of this quote is it shows how isolated he is from his other memebers of the white peers, hes angry but hes still keeping it calm as he is explaining it to LEnnie and he knows how lennie is and what happens when he starts to get worry or confused. He is sort of jelouse in a way of george and lennies relationship they have because he knows they might have a possible chance of owning a "fatta of the lan". Hes also ina way sorry for himself of his circumstances and vulnerabilty.

Thanks hopes this helpp
