Direct quotes under 30 words are included in the body of your essay enclosed in single inverted commas and followed immediately with a superscript number that refers to a footnote at the bottom of your page.
If a direct quote is 30 words or more it is called a block quote. As a rule block quotes should be used sparingly in your essay.
For block quotes, omit the quotation marks, start the quote as a new paragraph on a new line and indent the whole quote 1 cm from the left-hand margin of the page. Don't indent from the right-hand margin.
Introduce the quote with a colon.
As for a short quote, a superscript number is inserted immediately after the quote.
