You may wish to add a quotation to your bio page, as Sara Smiley has done below. This is completely optional, and should only be done if you know a quote that somehow represents your worldview, or is highly relevant to your current life goals. A short quotation can be used, even if it is not in the public domain, so long as it is set apart from the rest of the text (by quotation marks or formatting), and credit is given. For example, Sara Smiley quoted “Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions,” setting the quotation apart in quotations above the body of her biography, and stating that the quote was from Albert Einstein.
