    Welcome to the forum.

    It's important to give the source and author of any quote. Who wrote that sentence and in what publication?

    Note my corrections above. It's important to follow these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
