    Jaheim,

    Glad you replied so quickly.

    There are things to know, to do better:
    The second grouping of quotes have no authors; thus, they are incomplete!

    There’s no place like home” is from The Wizard of Oz

    It is better to say the character and the film, ex. –Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars
    –Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz

    I doubt Walt Disney said that, but you could say, —Walt Disney’s Meet the Robinsons

    Nicely done, Malkut.

    I would add the character and the film:
    –Darth Vader, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

    Work: “I never took a day off in my twenties.” – Bill Gates

    Children: “Children are our most valuable resource.” – Herbert Hoover

    A). 1. John 15:13-“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” The source goes last.
    2.”May the Force be with you.” – Star Wars, 1977 I’d add the speaker’s name and then italicize or underline the movie title.

    B). 1. “The rich invest their money and spend what is left; the poor spend their money and invest what is left.”
    2. “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” -Tim Notke, coach. What sport? What team?
    These next three are not good enough without sources. Sources add credibility.
    3. “The soul is healed by being with children”
    4. “The highest happiness on earth is the happiness of marriage.”
    5. “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”

    3.“All you need is love.” – John Lennon
    4.“I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done.” –Marilyn Monroe
