and should i just add the quote right after the thesis statement? also i wanna know before adding a quote what should i write? like say, as the saying goes and write the quote? or just write it right away?
I suggest that your first Google the quote to make sure the author is unknown. If the author is unknown, then you put the sentence/phrase, in quotation marks and then put Author Unknown in parentheses right after the quote. You can preface the quote by saying "This quote seems appropriate" or whatever, followed by the quote, or not, as you see fit. Many times it is more effective not to preface the quote by saying anything, just inserting it where you want it.
