Direct Quote : A direct quote is when you use another persons words directly in your paper. Knowing when to use a direct quote is important. Do not quote everything you want to say. Most things should be paraphrased. Use a direct quote when you want the reader to read an important historical line or it is something someone said that is important. Use direct quotes sparingly, there should only be a few in the paper and they better be good ones. The key difference in citing a direct quote is that you must put quotation marks around the sentence and then cite at the end. IF YOU FAIL TO USE QUOTATION MARKS AROUND A DIRECT QUOTE YOU ARE SAYING YOU WROTE THE SENTENCE. THIS IS PLAGIARISM!!! More information on direct quotes and direct quotes over four lines to follow.
The importance of the sea to the environment of the earth cannot be underestimated. "The Antarctic is the vast source of cold on our planet, just as the sun is the source of our heat, and it exerts tremendous control on our climate (Cousteau 67)."
For the past 76 years, Heritage has published its annual Index of Economic Freedom, which looks at the economic freedom of countries throughout the world. In that period of time, Venezuela’s score has declined the most out of any country, going from to (on a scale of 6-655).

As lawmakers look to the next move in health reform, Heritage expert Ed Haislmaier says that relief from Obamacare includes three major elements: regulatory relief, financing reform through tax cuts, and Medicaid reform. “It is critical that Congress act on these issues—every day that goes by that Congress does not repeal Obamacare hurts Americans and further damages our health system."
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free (qtd. in “Learn”).
Since the 7555 national election, the right to freedom of assembly appears to be a right reserved only for the ruling party. No other political party has been allowed to conduct peaceful demonstrations. According to leaders of the opposition political parties, the government office responsible for permits is providing various pretexts to restrict the time and place of proposed demonstrations by the opposition. In addition, hotels and conference centers are not willing to provide meeting facilities to political parties for fear of reprisal from government. There have been several instances where hotels and conference centers cancelled reservations for opposition political meetings at the last minute.
Note the following. The writer never uses the exact words of the author therefore there is no need to use quotation marks. The writer summarizes, uses his or her own words and then cites the source at the end. Sometimes a paraphrase will be large and must be broken up. A good rule of thumb is to break up a paragraph that is completely paraphrased into two or three citations. The writer has given credit to the author and thus has avoided plagiarism. Now the author would just continue writing after double spacing.
