    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)


    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:


    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.
