Best Answer

Quotes or quotations are phrases used in a research paper, essay, article or other form of writing where someone is using the exact same wording as the writer of the original material. Quotations are used to give credit to the original author.


"Doubt thou, the Stars are fire,

Doubt, that the Sun doth move:

Doubt Truth to be a liar,

But never doubt, I love."

- "Hamlet" - by William Shakespeare
