self.quotes =[[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects: @"Haters gonna hate", @"Life is simple, not easy", @"Winners never quit, quitters never win", nil];

you should add the dot "text" property, to be like this :

self.quoteLabel.text = [self.quote objectAtIndex:1];

because you code will make the label itself a string which will make the app crashes, you should change the text of the label instead

You want to assign something to the text of the UILabel, so you should use self.quoteLabel.text. Also, make sure you are calling objectAtIndex on self.quotes rather than self.quote.

See below:

self.quoteLabel.text = [self.quotes objectAtIndex:1];
