There are two types of direct quotes you can use in your writing:
If the quote is fewer than forty words, that is referred to as a short quotation and it can just be built into your paragraph using quotation marks and the rest of the appropriate in-text citation information.
If the quote is more than forty words, that is referred to as a block quotation. The reader is able to identify this as a direct quote because the quote is started on a new line and the entire quote is indented so it looks like a block, thus the name block quotation. Make sure to include the appropriate in-text citation information for the quote
For either type, make sure to include a full citation on your References page.
