"My God ! Remember how they used to follow him around in high school? When he smiled at one of them their faces lit up. When he walked down the street..."(Miller 6)
"Like a young god. Hercules- something like that . And the sun, the sun all around him.Remeber how he waved to me ? Right up from the field , with the representatives of three colleges standing by? And the buyers I brought, and the cheers when he came out-Loman,Loman,Loman! God Almighty , he'll be great yet. A star like that, magnificent , can never really fade away! " (Miller 51)
These qoutes are important to Willy's character because they display his feelings towards Biff and how great of expectations he had/has of him . The first qoute relates on how Willy believes that people who are well liked are mostly successful . So he's reminsicng on how well liked and popular Biff used to be and is confused on how his life turned out , because he's not successful .
