    Properly placed quotes add power and detail to your essay writing. Putting the right expert observation in the right place can make an essay shine. Don''''''''''''''''t allow improper formatting to distract your reader. Proper formatting of quotes, attributions and citations differs slightly depending on whether you are using Modern Language Association or American Psychological Association style, but general principles apply to both. Check with your instructor to determine the precise style desired.

    Begin and end short quotations with double quotation marks. Do not leave a space between the quotation marks and the text. Only the exact words of your source and the punctuation of the quote itself should be inside the quotation marks. Separate lines of poetry with a space, a forward slash and another space.

    Select the portion of the secondary source that you want to quote. Introduce the secondary source quote in your writing. Use double quotation marks around the secondary source’s passage. Use single quotation marks around the quoted portion. If this is an essay, be sure to add a parenthetical citation and a works cited list.

    What Is This Quotation Doing in This Essay?
    Let us begin at the beginning. You have a chosen a quotation for your essay. But, why that specific quotation?

    Your Essay Is Your Mouthpiece
    Should the quotation speak for the essay or should the essay speak for the quotation? Quotations should add impact to the essay and not steal the show. If your quotation has more punch than your essay, then something is seriously wrong. Your essay should be able to stand on its own legs; the quotation should merely make this stand stronger.
