Blog #28 Using Quotes in Writing

“To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”
― Mary Oliver

Do quotes have anything to do with business?

Sure they do! (I’m talking literary, statistical, and similar, not car insurance. Just for clarity). Want to know more? Read on.

When will a quote help out a passage?

Whenever putting a long report together, an essay, a Power Point, or anything being shown to an audience, it is helpful to use a quote. Quotes capture the attention of the reader. They make the person listening interested.

What else are quotes good for?

Quotes may give authority on a matter. When writing a business document, quoting a professional in that particular business makes you seem more reliable. If the authority said it was true, then of course the audience should listen to you. They also add a certain level of creativity to your work.
