The quote environment is used to produce quotations, for example:

``An opening quotation is a useful device, especially if it shows the author to be a broadly cultured Man (or Woman) of Science rather than a narrowly ignorant philistine. Newton, again, is good, particularly if he includes a few quaint words with initial capitals. Quotations from Ancient Greeks, if written in Greek characters without a translation, are highly sophisticated. Biblical quotes are considered rather tasteless nowadays, and The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy is passé. The Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayyam is forbidden.''
