Quote of the Book: “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since. “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” This quote is on the first page of the book and is the very first two sentences. This passage caught my eye as soon as it was read, it stood out. It shows that the story is going to have a good moral and seems that it will have a good story line. Not only is it advice it is something taken to heart, it shows that this person truly cares for people and does not judge. Nick being the one to say this shows it to be true, he never really judged anyone in the story, not even Tom for cheating on Daisy as bad as most people would, and listened to people. This passage was chosen because it means alot to me, the meaning of it is a wonderful story. It means a lot, especially in the world today, it honestly tells a story with just the little part that is there. It reminds me of myself, growing up in a not great environment and wearing Walmart clothes, I was always judged. No one knew what I was going through, or how much I loved the Walmart clothes because that was the only clothes I knew. It is something a parent should want to teach their kids, and want to learn their self. It is so important to this book because it is the moral I believe, as Gatsby died and went through
