When you use in a sentence and you going to quote somethig someone said?
This is how you quote within a quote - like you would when
"I know! She actually said, 'You're stupid,' and left!" Zoe told me angrily.
I don't know if you're asking if quotation marks should be used to begin a sentence or if you're asking if a sentence should be started with a quote from an outside source. So I will answer both. Quotation marks may begin a sentence at any time necessary. While writing essays, in my experience, professors like a little introduction before a quote. But there's no rule saying you can't.

C stands for Claim. In the first sentence of your paragraph make a claim that states what you are going to prove in the paragraph. Next, E for example, where you set up your quote. Next, E for evidence (the quote you are using to prove your claim). Finally, W for warrant. This sentence warrants why your quote was useful, and why the claim was useful to prove the thesis as a whole
You normally put a quote in a sentence where you want it to go. He said, "Let's get out of here." If it is a quote within a quote then you use single quote marks. Jane said, "Let us try to find the white cat." Sue said, "We will go to Mary's house to look but it will be hard because 'all cats are gray in the dark'."
If a quote begins in the middle of a sentence and ends at the period does the quote still go after the period?
Most of the time the answer is yes. Sometimes, you can end a quote at the end of a sentence using the ellipsis or the (...). For example, the court stated that even the the Defendant was wrong, she should not "pay retribution persuant to the contract..." Notice that even here the quote is after the period.
