― Ernest Cline, Ready Player One
I chose this quote from the book because it shows a lot about the main character, Wade. It is a metaphor, and it has a deep meaning. Wade was never rich, and he could never do anything other kids could in the virtual world OASIS because it cost money to go anywhere. He was stuck watching his friends as they experienced amazing things, not able to do anything because he and his family were broke. I feel many people can relate to this, too. While others can go on costly vacations to exotic places or buy the newest technology and fashion, some have to deal with the bear minimum and can only congratulate and watch their peers as they have a blast. For those reasons, I chose this quote.
