Quotations can be inserted within the text of an essay or alternatively it can be made a heading. Look at the following example:


To human is Err…
(Confucius)

“Every man in this world tries to be perfect, yet it is the nature of human to commit mistake. Error is intrinsic to human, they can try to minimize it but can’t eradicate it completely. ………..”


Alternatively you can go this way:

“Every man in this world tried to be perfect, yet it is the nature of humans to commit mistake as said Confucius, "To human is Err", yet they try to minimize it but it can’t be eradicated completely”

Important thing to note is that whenever we made a heading or use it in sentence in the body we need to write it exactly

Quotations should always be written in inverted commas " ". Also you should make the reader feel the presense of quotation. One way of doing this is to underline quotation. But more appropriate way is to write quotation in ink different from regular ink. i.e. If you are writing essay in blue ink, you may use black ink to write quotations. It is also better if you indent the quotation in the centre. It makes your piece of writing look neater, atttractive and betterly presented. One should also not use too many quotations in the essay. Because essay is organization of ideas in one's own point of view. Quotations should only justify or strenghten one's stand but not subsitute all the ideas.

Here is a piece of writing to explain quotation writing.

This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph.

"This is a quotation. This is a Quotation. This is a quotation. This is a Quotation"


This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph. This is paragraph.

How to give source of the book, title, author name? in what sequence? Does the pattern of research essay apply here? e.g., (Alex(2nd name of author) 2004 (year of publication)).

While writing & citing, nearly every reference to a source has two parts:
1. The indication in the body of your paper that you’re referring to a source, and
2. The publication information a reader needs to track that source down later.

The two citation styles used discussed here—MLA, APA, and these are called in-text style.

MLA Type Format:
In MLA format, references to a source should mention the author’s name and the exact page you’re using directly in your paragraph. You would give the page number in parentheses, directly after you quote or paraphrase the source. You may give the author’s name in the parentheses, too, or include it in your sentence.

Here are two very simple examples of how this might look:

In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle suggests that such people “think happiness is some plain or obvious thing, like pleasure, wealth, or honour” (2).

The Nicomachean Ethics suggests that such people “think happiness is some plain or obvious thing, like pleasure, wealth, or honour” (Aristotle 2).

In either case, the reader will know to look for “Aristotle” in your Works Cited to find the rest of the information about your source.

APA Type Format:
In APA format, references to a source should mention the author’s name and give the publication year of the source. You would normally give the year in parentheses. You may give the author’s name in the parentheses, too, or include it in your sentence. (If you include the name in your sentence, give the year directly after; if you put the name and year in parentheses, put them at the end of the sentence where you quote or paraphrase the source.)

Here are two very simple examples of how this might look:

Geller (2001) found that women who shop with their mothers spend twice as much on a dress as those who shop with friends.

Studies suggest that women who shop with their mothers spend twice as much on a dress as those who shop with friends (Geller, 2001).
