According to Aristotle:
"The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet"
Have you ever thought of why such quotes becomes so special and popular? If one tries to notice, it can easily be seen that famous quotes are pithy that are capable of grabbing the interests of the readers.

While writing a personal essay it is useful to link a thesis statement with a famous quote. Including one such quote that resembles your thesis sentence intrigues a writer to read the whole content.

The other thing is, using quotes can make your thesis statement clear and adds value to it. A quote cannot be used as a thesis sentence instead; an individual should try to write meaningful concise sentences that can work as quotes.

An original thesis statement leads towards many ideas that encompasses to other distinctive, but creative ideas. For example, here we are including the famous quote of Winston Churchill, who have said that

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" Now, here we can see that it sets up an argument that is curt, but interesting, we can use following ideas that can work as a thesis statement and links with the quote too:

-A failure can be overcome
-Learn from your failure
-Why everybody fails in a life time

Now, these ideas can act as body paragraphs arguments, which can be followed up by thesis statement. It requires a brief sentence which can engage the sentences and can help making a quality thesis statement.

One can easily find good quotes of the famous philosophers. It would help in developing a unique, interactive and informative thesis sentence writing to which a body can be easily constructed. A few are mentioned here that can be linked easily.
