All quiet on the western front written by Erich Maria Remarque, in this part they are talking about a soldier and his parents, they say what they see in this situation about what the soldier does.

My mother is pleased to see me wearing civilian clothes, it makes me less strange to her. But my father would rather I kept my uniform on so that he could take me to visit his acquaintances.

I chose this quote because I am interested in what his parents think of him, and if they are proud or not, because I think it’s important to know if your parents like what you do or if they think it’s bad for you, because being at war is difficult. Pg164.
