    quoting someone

    Hi,

    Assume i am saying while writing an essay:
    " A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author" ,Chesterton (1900).
    Is this the proper way to quote Chesterton if he said this in an article written in year 1900? (of course i will put a full reference at the end but i don't want to say Chesterton said :" "; I want to keep his name till the end)Thanks
