Modifying direct quotes

0

Should I correct direct quotes, particularly quotes that are old and therfore different grammar was used?

See example:

I reply that it is not up to a writer, to attack the value of an expression that has been consecrated by use and that in my national language I have not been able to find a better name than Jew to designate those whom I wish to stigmatize."
