Using quotations correctly is a
skill needed by students in all fields of study. Sometimes, it is
not enough to paraphrase from a source; a direct quote provides us
with the exact words of a writer or speaker.
If using the writer or speaker's
exact words, use double quotation marks (" ") to
enclose the quotation:
Einstein believed that "Imagination
is more important than knowledge."
Remember that quotes are only used
on the exact words. If you paraphrase, you need only
identify the source.
Einstein believed that imagination,
not knowledge, is the most important.
