What am I doing wrong?

Program.cs
using System;

class Program
{

    // YOUR CODE HERE: Define a Quote method!
        static string Quote(string paramOne)
            {
                Console.Write($"\"{paramOne}\"");
                return Console.ReadLine();
            }

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // Quote by Maya Angelou.
        Console.WriteLine(Quote("When you learn, teach. When you get, give."));
        // Quote by Benjamin Franklin.
        Console.WriteLine(Quote("No gains without pains."));
    }

The instructions say the function should return the new string. It won't need to output it, and it certainly won't need to read in anything from the console.
