    • Agenda for February 21, 2011 Quote integration Punctuation review
    • Good Quote integration comes from…
      • 1. using quotations (selections from the assigned reading) that accurately defend your opinion.
      • 2. not overusing quotations so that your entire paragraph consists of quotation marks.
      • 3. not leaving your quotations “hanging” – simply placing them in your writing without any connection to the argument you’re trying to make
      • 4. grammatically integrating the quotation so that your sentences flow naturally and smoothly
    • Some Grammar issues with Quote integration
      • 1. Use ellipses (…) to indicate missing words.
      • 2. Use brackets to indicate a grammar change in the quotation.
      • 3. Use a slash to indicate where lines of quoted poetry end.
      • A. The Analytical Use of the Quotation.
      • A1) Does the quote fit into the context of the argument? Or does it overpower and claim authority over the writer’s ideas?
      • B. The Stylistic Integration of the Quotation.
      • B1) Is the quote properly introduced, or just "plopped" into the text?
      • A2) Is the quotation explained and thoroughly discussed ?
      • B2) Is the quotation syntactically and grammatically aligned with the rest of the sentence? (i.e. verb tenses, parallelism etc.)
      • To Have Succeeded
      • By Ralph Waldo Emerson
      • To laugh often and love much:
      • To win respect of intelligent people
      • And the affection of children;
      • To earn the approbation of honest critics
      • And endure the betrayal of false friends;
      • To appreciate beauty;
      • To find the best in one’s self;
      • To leave the world a little better,
      • Whether by a healthy child
      • A garden patch,
      • Or redeemed social condition;
      • To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
      • And sung with exultation;
      • To know even one life has breathed easier
      • Because you have lived…
      • This is to have succeeded.
    • In paragraph form and with reference to the poem, describe Emerson’s definition of success in “To Have Succeeded”?  
      • In the poem “To Have Succeeded” Ralph Waldo Emerson offers many personal definitions of success. In the first stanza, Emerson defines success as the ability “to laugh often and love much”. He would hope to be respected among his friends, children, critics, and intelligent people. In the second stanza, Emerson wants “to leave the world a little better” by : appreciate[ing] beauty” and making positive contributions to society. Finally, in the third stanza, Emerson believes success is living life voraciously, singing, laughing, and playing often. Making “one life [breathe] easier” because of his existence is tantamount to elation. Ultimately, Emerson believes that success comes from within and it is the way one lives his life that will allow personal success.
