Quote#1:

“It’s not easy the life you’ve got to live. I know you’d like to look outside. You’d like to go outside.” (18)

This means he can never go outside or even look outside in case of someone seeing him. Luke’s Mother feels for him and tries to comfort him by telling him she understands how hard his life is. This quote is important because it describes the theme of the book, or how Luke is forced to live. All Luke really wants is to be able to go outside freely and feel the warm soil beneath his bare feet. However, because of the law he must never even think
