Well basically, I would suggest that you start by analyzing the general elements. For example, you can start by analyzing structural elements like the importance of paragraphs or single one-liners if possible. You could also analyze the language used such as the level of language (slang, standard, etc.), use of literary devices (similes, metaphors, hyperboles, etc.) and more. As for the specific quotes, basically apply all these different ways to analyze to the quotes. Explain the importance, analyze the level of language, talk about the vocabulary used throughout the quote, etc. Hope this helps :)
