There are a couple of ways in which in might acknowledge a source in your paper.

  • Direct Citation: Colors play an important role in our impressions. As Colson Whitehead observes, “Aspirants to luxury often opt for red and gold hues long soaked into their mentalities as the spectra of royalty” (1999, 145). *
  • Paraphrase: Colors play an important role in our impressions. For example, Colson Whitehead points out that red and gold are associated with royalty and luxury. *
  • Reference: Many writers, including Colson Whitehead, have noted that colors play an important role in our impressions. *

* Whitehead, Colson. The Institutionalist. New York: Anchor Books, 1999.
