This sentence leads to a wishing poem. How should it be punctuated? I have tried a comma and a semicolon but I get the error message.
She studied her dress and said;
Food is one of the basic necessity in our Daily eating habits.many peoples are too;busy with their jobs.
Basically,family or even the individual people are spending a lot of time at work.that is why busy people are prefer to eat in a restaurant.rather than eating at home.
Which are the two mistakes of capitalization on this sentence and two closing punctuation marks and 1 punctuation within in a sentence I need your some advice thanks.

She studied her dress and said, "......."
or, She studied her dress and said: "......."
Either a comma or a colon preceding the open quotation marks is fine.
A semi-colon (;) is usually used to separate items in a list or to divide a sentence between two independent clauses, instead of having to use connecting words/conjunctions such as "but", "not", "and".
