    quoted, unquoted

    (quoted)
    There are guns, tools, handmade sweaters and throws and some furniture. (unquoted)
    __________________________________________________ ________________


    Is the above format correct for the writings quoted from other sources?

    Re: quoted, unquoted

    I believe what you mean is quote and unquote.
    Where do you intend to write this? Isn't it easier to just use quotation marks?

    Re: quoted, unquoted

    not a teacher

    No. This is not a correct way to quote an author's text!
    Have a look here:
    Referencing - The Harvard System

    If you just want to make clear that the specific text isn't your own creation: put it in quotation marks or italics.
