    Quotation

    Hello!

    1) If I quote from a book in a text, should I type the name of the book in italics?
    2) Should I type the first letter of the quotation in bold?

    Thank you

    2) Should I type the first letter of the quotation in bold? I would, with quote marks beginning and end.

    Thank you

    Pride and Prejudice begins with the words, "It is a truth universally acknowledged ...".

    The truth universally acknowledged in Pride and Prejudice is "that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife".
