Always integrate quotations into your text. NEVER just “drop” a quotation in your writing! In other words, don't let a piece of textual evidence stand alone as its own sentence (unless it's multiple sentences long). Use your own words to introduce a quotation.
The first word in a quotation that is a complete sentence is capitalized, but the first word in a partial quotation is not: He said, “Life is just one d*mned thing after another.”
