Who wrote this?

I remember reading a long time ago (in what I thought was John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath”) the following:

“If you want to drive your head into a pile of broken glass, ain’t nobody can tell you different.”

I’ve looked for this quote but can’t find it in “The Grapes of Wrath” or anywhere else for that matter. Anybody know where it’s from?

Thanks,

Aha, there it is! – page 47, “The Grapes of Wrath.” Thank you Google Books!

Joad grinned. “No, I ain’t. If you wanta drive your head into a pile a broken glass, there ain’t nobody can tell you different. You know this here preacher, don’t you, Muley? Rev. Casy.”
