    Quote, no quote, other?

    If someone were to say, "People really need more me in their life." Would "me" need to have anything grammatical done to it or is it fine left as is?

    Wait, I'm confused.

    Do you mean to actually quote "me?" Like this: People need more "me" in their life. And if so, would it be grammatically incorrect to just write it out this way: People need more me in their life?

    To clarify, nothing needs to be changed here: People need more me in their life.
