Translating quotes is a good way to take a break from studying and enjoy the language you are learning. Try translating sentences yourself first and try to understand individual words from context.
If you have no idea what a word means, look it up in a dictionary. At the end check the English translation and see if you understood the sentence correctly. It’s a great exercise to practice reading in Arabic.
