can you post some code you have tried so far

Why this code not compiling? Displays error "Bummer! You need assign the above quote to the 'text' property of quoteLabel!"

#import "THViewController.h"

@implementation THViewController

// Add your code below
@property (nonatomic, strong) IBOutlet UILabel *quoteLabel;

-(IBAction) buttonPressed {
  self.quoteLabel.text = @"The road to success is always under construction";

you can implement a method like so:

- (returnType)methodName {


the challenge wants you to implement a method called buttonPressed with a return type of IBAction. make sure you include the opening and closing curly braces
