What does "He was quoted as saying" mean?. I think we can simply say "He quoted -xyz". Is it correct?
On Monday, you say "I am very angry with my brother".
On Tuesday, I write an article which says "Tufguy said 'I am very angry with my brother' yesterday."
On Wednesday, someone else writes "Tufguy was quoted as saying 'I am very angry with my brother'". The person who writes that is referring to my quote from Tuesday, which referred back to your words on Monday.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
