Would have been helpful if you stated explicitly that you did not want us to print the quotation marks around the oscar wilde quote. I just spent ten minutes looking for a bug in my code that wasn’t there.

Try again using:
void oscar_wilde_quote(){
std::cout << “The highest, as the lowest, form of criticism is a mode of autobiography.\n”;

i wrote the quote wrong :joy:

Inside of main() , call `oscar_wilde_quote() I dont know wat to do can someone help me

You need to std::cout a string in the function oscar_wilde() and then call that function inside the int main().

It would be nice to know that you don’t need to enter return before function because all previous examples had return marked as a blue operator before declared function. This was very off-putting!
