Concluding Paragraphs - CommNet
This method of concluding a paper is one step short of giving a logical conclusion. Rather than handing the conclusion over, you can leave the reader with a question that causes him or her to draw his own conclusions.
How to Write a Concluding Paragraph - Clarkson University
The introductory and concluding paragraphs serve a different purpose. The former introduces your topic and your thesis (the claim being argued for), while the latter serves to tie all your supporting evidence together, reinforce your thesis, and then demonstrate the implications of your argument (why it matters). Because these are the functions of these two paragraphs, they generally are light on quotations, if they have any at all. It isn't because quotes are not appropriate; sometimes, introducing a paper or concluding a paper with a particularly relevant quote from an author is very effective rhetorically. But on the whole, these two paragraphs should contain your voice as the author of your paper, since it is claims being forwarded and ideas that should be being explained. Quotes serve to reinforce your ideas, but they should never be a substitute for them. As long as your conclusion is predominately about your argument, and what you demonstrated, and why it matters, then adding a quote which is appropriate to these themes is acceptable.
