    Post Quotations!!

    How can I quote from these passages:

    1-Stage direction

    The dinning-room of a fairly large suburban house, belonging to a prosprous manufacturer. It has good solid furniture of the period. The general effect is substantial and heavily comfortable but not easy and homlike.
    (An Inspector Calls by J. B. Priestley)


    2-Play

    LEAR: But goes thy heart with this?
    CORDELIA: Ah, my good Lord.
    LEAR: So young, and so untender?
    CORDELIA: Let it be so: thy truth then be thy dower:

    3-

    When the curtains rises, the set is in darkness but for a single spot which descends vertically upon the COMMON MAN, who stands in front of a big property basket.

    COMMON MAN: It is preverse! To start a play made up of kings and Cardinals in speaking costumes and intellectuals with embroidered mouths, with me. (A Man for all Seasons by Robert Bolt)

    Peace be with you.

    Re: Quotations!!

    I'm not sure I understand the question. To quote these in a piece of writing just do what you did here: rewrite them. Use quotation marks and put it in a seperate paragraph since it's long. Of course, you introduce it somehow too.
