Hi Andre,

You need to assign values to properties in the implementation file, not the header file. Also, you need to set a UILabel's text property (it has other properties like font size, etc., so you can't just assign the NSString to the whole object). You also need to use self when referring to the property. Lastly, your string is missing a period :smile:.

ViewController.m
#import "ViewController.h"

@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
    [super viewDidLoad];
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.


}

- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning {
    [super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.
}

- (IBAction)quoteButtonPressed {

    //Add your code below!
    self.quoteLabel.text = @"A stitch in time saves nine.";
}

@end
