C3: a quote that stands out to me in chapter 2 is, “I become faint, and all at once I cannot do any more. I won't revile any more, it is senseless, I could drop down and never rise up again (38). This quote stands out to me because it emphasizes Paul Bäumers strong feelings of sorrow. Paul lies next to Kemmerich to try to comfort him as he is in his death throes, as the night goes on he ignores him and eventually dies. This quote is significant because it shows Paul’s feelings for his friend and how upset he is that a young nineteen who didn't even really start their life yet just had to go into war and now his life is over. Paul also grew up with kemmerich so he knew him for a while.
