Below are three very good quotes that are excellent representations of these characters:

Whatever we ain't got, that's what you want. God a'mighty, if I was alone I could live so easy. I could go get a job an' work, an no trouble. No mess at all, and when the end of the month come I could take my fifty bucks and go into town and get whatever I want.
Of Mice and Men
George in Chapter 1

We could live offa the fatta the lan'.
Of Mice and Men
Lennie in Chapter 3

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.
Of Mice and Men
Crooks in Chapter Chapter 4

"I ought to of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn't ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog." Of Mice and Men Chapter 3

A quote OF them? About all of them? If so, then see what Curley's wife says to Crooks and Candy late in Chapter 4.

Or a quote from each of them?

The saddest line from George is just before he kills Lennie: "No, Lennie. I ain't mad. I never been mad, an' I ain't now."

Crooks' saddest line is the "Yes, ma'am" he says to Curley's wife.

And Candy? "What we gonna do now, George. What we gonna do now?"
