Writing quotes can get a bit tricky because you are using quotes not your own words. How do you get around the original content pass?
This too can be a bit tricky with some. But writing around the quote to explain an issue or a solution can be somehow helpful. There are times we had been asked to do so in an examination. Thank you.
I sorry. I wasn't clear. I meant writing about quotes like "Great Sports Quotes" or "Inspirational Quotes." The articles about quotes are getting approved by HP. I want to know how it is done. Original content is tricky. Any suggestions?
There is a quote option in the text capsule. I have written it in a font and choice of color, to make it stand out better, and just attributed the author. I've done it on several articles without an issue. Maybe that helps?
Yes. That is what I do when I am quoting someone in a "regular" article. The one I am working on is an article about favorite quotes and so forth.
I wanted to let everyone know that my Albert Einstein quote article passed QA and is featured. Samantha helped me by working with me and making sure the original content and quote ratio passed QA. Thank you, Sam! I plan to add extra original content and submit to a niche site.
Hey, Kenna, let us have the link to the article. Thanks.
Kenna, are you referring to introducing a quote from a third-party source within an article? Do you mean something like this:
On April 8, Condoleezza Rice, the U.S. National Security Advisor, testified before the independent National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. CNN.com points out that “The White House initially refused to allow Rice's public testimony but reversed its position after pressure from relatives of 9/11 victims, commission members [sic] and politicians.”
Or is it something else?
Kenna, if you’re looking for words and phrases to introduce quotes within a manuscript, this may help you:
Here are some words and phrases that you can use to introduce a third-party quote: “remarks,” “points out,” “according to,” “tells us,” “explains,” “confirms,” “reveals,” “argues,” “agrees,” and “adds.” Here are some examples of how the words and phrases function within the body of an article:
On February 4, Facebook was launched by Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes in a Harvard University dorm room. Matt Ahlgren tells us that Facebook is now “the king/queen of the social media landscape with an audience that is both massive (close to 1.5 billion active daily users) as well as loyal (average time spent on it per user per day is 35 minutes).” About 400 people join Facebook every minute.
On December 25, a 9.1 magnitude earthquake created a tsunami that caused devastation along the coasts of several Southeast Asian countries. Britannica.com confirms that “On December 26, 2004, at 7:59 AM local time, an undersea earthquake with a magnitude of 9.1 struck off the coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Over the next seven hours, a tsunami--a series of immense ocean waves--triggered by the quake reached out across the Indian Ocean, devastating coastal areas as far away as East Africa. Some locations reported that the waves had reached a height of 30 feet (9 metres) or more when they hit the shoreline.”
CBSNews.com tells us that General Motors, the nation’s biggest automaker, lost $30.9 billion in 2008. That was “nearly $85 million a day, or more than $3,700 on every vehicle it sold in 2008.” Likewise, Ford Motor Company suffered a $14.6 billion loss in 2008, “the worst annual result in its 105-year history.”
In September, the term “grayware” was coined. ComputerHope.com explains that “grayware (or greyware) refers to an unwanted software program (small or large) that can cause damage to a computer system. Most adware, malware, and spyware programs can be classified as grayware. In general, grayware is not as destructive as a virus, but rather are more of a nuisance or annoyance.”
In 2004, the national unemployment rate was 5.50%. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics points out that “Two States that border the Pacific--Alaska and Oregon--recorded the highest jobless rates in 2004, 7.5 and 7.4 percent, respectively. Michigan, at 7.1 percent, was the only other state with a rate above 7.0 percent. Overall, 16 states and the District of Columbia had unemployment rates above the national average of 5.5 percent in 2004.”
On May 14, the "I Love You" virus attacked tens of millions of computers worldwide. According to Commdocs.House.gov, “a number of people around the world began their day by reviewing their e-mails, including one with an attachment attractively entitled ‘I LOVE YOU.’ Upon opening the attachment, however, these unsuspecting victims soon learned that saying ‘I love you’ also meant having to say 'I'm sorry' as they became victims of the Love Bug computer virus. In one day's time, roughly 47 million people received the email worldwide and the virus looked for love in all the wrong places in over 10 million computers.”
In January, Citigroup, the nation’s largest bank, reported a fourth-quarter loss for 2007 that approached $10 billion. Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit blamed the company's grim results on “subprime exposure in the company's fixed-income business, a surge in credit costs in its U.S. consumer loan portfolio and the staggering $18.1 billion writedown on its subprime-related exposure.”
The monetary crisis quickly spread to the entire U.S. financial sector. Joel Havemann reveals that casualties in the United States included the largest mortgage lender, government-sponsored entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the entire investment banking industry, two of the largest commercial banks, the largest savings and loan, the biggest insurance company, and the auto industry.
Whenever appropriate, I also insert “[sic]” into the body of a quote when there is an obvious grammatical error, missing punctuation marker, missspellling, etc.
Here is a link to a useful article on the subject:

I think OP means pages that are just examples of famous quotations on various subjects -- not the sort of thing you paraphrase
If that’s the case, there are a couple of writers here whose articles Kenna can reference as a prototype You probably know which authors I mean too.
Doesn't Natalie periodically write those kinds of articles?
This is true. I think that she has written articles that have quotes centered around a common theme.
Hey, Kenna, perhaps, you are alluding to the "call out" text capsule quotes? I start with it last year, and my experience is like this: I look for a significant short text in a book or article relating to what story I am writing, and the subsequent text capsule. It is like calling for attention. That short quotation will be a pointer to the text I am writing. It embodies the body of that particular text capsule. The text capsule then will be simplifying the question and explaining things in detail. I hope this helps a little. Thank you, and good day to you.
Thank you. I do this with my other articles. This one is about favorite quotes and so forth.
Hi, Kenna, "This one is about favorite quotes and so forth." What type of favorite quotes are these, I may ask. Do you mean to say a writer just quote a long text of a page or two amount to 750 words? And, this becomes a standard text accept by HubPages for publishing? Thank you.
It's a list quotes from Einstein and discusses his life and theories.
Well, can you give me a link to the article? And, thanks.
It's not published. I am waiting for approval since I resubmitted it.
Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me.
