Favorite Passage

Like every book there are way too many passages you find that you like. but for "Of Mice and Men" mine would have to be the following:

“Maybe ever’body in the whole damn world is scared of each other.”

This passage is my favorite passage in the whole book. It tells a lot about the character Lennie. this passage can be related to life very easily.
