Dweck in her winter 2008 article “Brainology,” “Many students [with a fixed mindset] believe that intelligence is fixed, that each person has a certain amount [of intelligence] and that’s that” (par. 3).

In the example below, the brackets are being used to alter the grammatical structure of the quote so that the quote integrates smoothly into the writer’s prose (writing) in an essay.

  • In e.e. cummings’ 1952 poem “[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in],” the speaker tells us, the readers, that until we experience it, love will remain “the deepest secret” (2.9). But when we do experience love, we come to understand how fundamental it is to life and happiness: “the root of the root and the bud of the bud / and the sky of the sky of a tree called life” (2.10-11). Its reality transcends even the hope of the soul to find love—as it is “higher than soul can hope” (2.12). From love, the “mind can[not] hide” (2.12). Its “wonder” is what “keep[s] the stars apart”—keeps the world (our world—yours and mine) in working order (2.13).
