Write a 250 to 300 word explanation of (1) what the quote meant to the original readers of the text and (2) what it means to people today. A quote which is insightful and helpful should relate to people in the past AND in the present. (Thus, we avoid imposing our narrow culture on the past, and we learn from the past.) This brief explanation must be written and rewritten until it is clear and easy for others to understand on the first reading.
