Hi Donna,

Drop by and I'll show you how to quote: The other Psych Thinkers
too, if you don't know how.

I've cleaned up your text a bit too; everyone should use capital
letters to start sentences (as in regular paper text) and don't
use the tab for a new paragraph. Just a blank line to separate
paragraphs (that helps for quote/comment).
