Question Description

I have to write an essay for my summer reading assignment. I had to choose a certain passage from my book and write why it was meaningful to me and this is part of the question... "Be sure your response includes the author and title of the book you read and a quote or paraphrase (along with page numbers) that captures the essence of the passage you chose."

I dont know what they mean by " a quote or paraphrase that captures the essence". Please help!
