Embedding a Quote Do not start a sentence with a quote UNLESS it is your hook. You must lead into your quote. Do not just quote drop. A hero sacrifices his life for the good of others. The poem O Captain! My Captain! is an excellent example of gaining a victory at a price. Whitman wrote, “O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells; rise up-for you the flag is flung-or you the bugle trills” (Whitman 23). This captain is considered a hero because he sacrificed himself for the good of his men. The figurativemeaning of this poem speaks of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln not only put his reputation on the line for The United States, but also his life.
