Ultimately, you will be able to effectively integrate quotes into your own writing!

Remember that your reader needs to know the author's last name and the page number of the source from which you are borrowing ideas or exact words. In the following examples, Charles Norris is the author of a pamphlet published by the Food and Drug Administration. You may put the author's name in your sentence (as in example 1) or in parentheses with the page number (as in example 2), depending on what you wish to emphasize in your sentence.

Example 1:

Charles Norris, chief spokesman for the Food and Drug Administration, insists that it is not the responsibility of the government to provide "absolute protection against risks to female health" that contraceptive products may entail (2).

Example 2:

The Food and Drug Administration claims that the government is not responsible for providing "absolute protection against risks to female health" resulting from the use of contraceptive products (Norris 2).
