#1

I am displaying a quote and need a newline to be added after the quote.

So…

“It is said that the real winner is the one who lives in today but able to see tomorrow. --Juan Meng”

Needs to look like:

“It is said that the real winner is the one who lives in today but able to see tomorrow.
–Juan Meng”

How would I do this? I tired \n in the string and that didn’t add a newline.

Have you tried
(The line break) ?

<p>“It is said that the real winner is the one who lives in today but able to see tomorrow. <br>--Juan Meng”</p>

Use innerText instead of innerHTML. Or use <br> instead of \n.
function btnClick() {
  var randomQuote = Math.floor(Math.random() * quoteListLength);
  var current = quoteList[randomQuote];
  // innerText is safer
  mess.innerText = current.quote + '\n--' + current.author;
  // But if you must use innerHTML
  // mess.innerHTML = current.quote + '<br />--' + current.author;
}

var mess = document.getElementById('messy');

var quoteList = {
  0: {
