    Smile How to use Quotes in Essay Writing.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know how to use Quotes in introduction and Conclusion. Thanks a lot
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    I write an essay about Mobile Phones. I want to write a quote in my introduction but I don't know how to write it. In other words, in which form I should write it.
    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
    Arthur C. Clarke

    You could write, "As Arthur C. Clarke said, 'Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.'" It's a well-known quotation and not an academic reference so you just need to give the name of the person who said it and put their words in quotation marks or inverted commas (" ") or (' '). Just use the same punctuation that you see in your school books.
