  • This template should not be used for block quotations in article text. For long quotations in the text, the Manual of Style recommends using the HTML <blockquote> element or the {{quote}} template (which produces the blockquote tag).
  • This template should not be used for quotations if they are not repeated elsewhere in the main text. The Manual of Style recommendation is:
    • For visually distinctive quotation, use {{Quotation}} template.
    • For long quotations, use the HTML <blockquote> element, such as through the use of the {{Quote}} or {{quote box}} template.

{{Reduced pull quote}} is a variant of the {{Centered pull quote}} quotation template, intended for relatively short pull quotes of 50 or 100 words. It results in a floating quote with the article text wrapping around it, like an image.

Pull quotes work best when:

  • used with short sentences, and at the start or end of a section, as a hint of the section's content;
  • used with short quotes, and at the start or end of a section, to help emphasize the content of the section. For longer pull quotes, especially those more than a paragraph, or longer than the rest of the paragraph they are quoted in, a similar effect (across the page) can be produced by Cquote.

Usage

Align quote box to the right:

{{Reduced pull quote|right|Quote text|Origin of quote|Cited source}}

Align quote box to the left:

{{Reduced pull quote|left|Quote text|Origin of quote|Cited source}}

Parameters

  1. Alignment (left, right).
  2. Quote text
  3. Source (who said it?)
  4. Citation (where was it said?)

Formatting

Quotation marks are supplied by the template and should not be included in the quote text. Soft hyphens (&shy;) can be used to influence line breaks within the quote text.

Align right →

Code

{{Reduced pull quote |right
| This is an example pull-quote with the first option set to ''right''.
