1 Text of quote Yes
source Person quoted No
width Width of quote No Include measurement, such as em (recommended) or % or px; e.g. 22em

If align is not set, the quote is centred across the width of the page. Otherwise, the quote is aligned to the left or right, as specified, and other text is wrapped around it.


This template is mainly for "pull" quotes; that is, bits of text that are found elsewhere in the article, but are highlighted by also being used with this template. For this reason, no provision is included for showing a reference.

Another possible use is for a quote that sets the theme, like some authors use at the start of a chapter. See Biblical worldview for an example.

Normal quotes should use the {{quote}} template, which allows for more than one paragraph of quoted text, as well as a reference.
