When choosing a quote, make sure it: • supports the main idea of the paragraph • is punchy and direct, even dramatic • comes from a source you trust • is relatively short and to the point. Follow each quote with a short description of what it means and how it relates to your topic sentence and argument. Don't use quotes instead of your own words — they're meant to add weight to your argument.
