(When using quotations, it is important to identify the speaker.) A Jail sentence: "No one has ever escaped from me." A Stock quotation: "Moo, mooooo." A Bank statement: "I close at 4 p.m." A Credit card charge: "Your Honor, I'm bent because that man put me in the ATM machine wrong." A Spiritual affirmation: "Yes, you are right, my crystal ball IS dusty." A Brief announcement: "It is time to finish getting dressed. I'm cold." A Mummy's curse: " I can't se a #!*#*! thing with these #!*#*! bandages around my head."
