How do I go about writing this quote?

Oct 14th, 2013
quotation is an exact reproduction of another speaker's or writer’s words. A quotation is different from a paraphrase, which is a restatement of someone else’s ideas entirely in your own words. Quotation and paraphrase, along with summary (which is a brief restatement of the main points of a longer work), are three ways of incorporating information from other sources into your own writing.

The Uses of Quotation
In most writing, you should use quotations for one or more of the following specific purposes:

Use quotation to reproduce distinctive, admirable, or felicitous phrasing--that is, when a paraphrase would be an inadequate representation.

In his Introduction to Lysistrata, Douglass Parker denies that the play is a "hoard of applied lubricity."
Use quotation when your source uses words in a specialized or unorthodox way.

Both Calidorus and Pseudolus agree that Phoenicium's letter is "terrible," but they mean different things.
Use quotation when the speaker or writer is an expert on the subject or an otherwise famous person whose specific words might be newsworthy, of general interest, or add credibility to your paper.

Samuel Pepys called Twelfth Night "one of the weakest plays that ever I saw on the stage."
Use quotation to reproduce important statements of information, opinion, or policy.

According to the Code on Campus Affairs, "No absence from class is excused."
Use quotation to reproduce exactly a passage that you are explaining or interpreting.

Corrigan refers to the world of comedy as a "protected realm."
The ultimate test of whether a quotation is necessary or not is this question: does it help support your thesis?
The Mechanics of Quotation
Any handbook used in Rhetoric or English courses will give you an acceptable format for incorporating quotations into your writing and punctuating them correctly. The MLA and APA handbooks provide guidance as well.
