    I love to use powerful outside quotes for my essay hooks.For example, “The name of a man is a numbing blow from which he never recovers” by Marshall McLuhan or”From our ancestors come our names, but from our virtues our honors”. ~ProverbTry something like:”What’s in a name? That which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet,” penned William Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet. But is this true? Do our names dictate who we are?…Good luck! I usually have better success if I save my hook for last, sometimes I run across a great opener as I am writing the rest of my essay (although you should definatly NOT save the thesis for last!) :)
