Lesson 394

Mechanics - Punctuation - Colons

 

Place a colon outside of quotation marks. Example: That reminds me of a line from "A Psalm of Life": "Let us, then, be up and doing."

 

Instructions: Place colons where needed.

 

1. When offered an alcoholic drink, one should remember Martial's line in "A Total Abstainer" "No, I really don't care for a drink."

 

2. Do you remember the quote from "Carpe Diem" "This day's thine own; the next may be denied."

 

3. A man and a wife should use a line from "The Task" "With all thy faults, I love thee still."

 

4. Do you agree with this line from "Lacon" "Imitation is the sincerest of flattery."?

 

5. Whittier says in "Ichabod" "When faith is lost, when honor dies, The man is dead!"
