iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift Views and View Controllers IBActions and IBOutlets

It keeps telling me to attach a 'text' to my label, but i am pretty sure I'm doing that


class viewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var quoteLabel: UILabel!

    @IBAction func quoteButtonPressed() {
quoteLabel.text = "A stitch in time saves nine"    }

This might sound silly, but it happens a lot in coding. You seem to be missing the period.

"A stitch in time saves nine." <---

Good luck
