Quotes are also referred as quote marks, speech marks and inverted commas. These are punctuation marks used in pairs in various writing systems to set off direct speech, a quotation, or a phrase. The pair consists of an opening quotation mark and a closing quotation mark, which may or may not be of the same character. It has been used in a variety of forms and in different languages and media. (Greg, pg. 220) Many writers use quote to represent the repetition of someone elses statement or thoughts. Quotes are also punctuation marks used in text to indicate the words of another speaker or writer. Both of these words are sometimes abbreviated as ” quote(s)”.
Block quote is another punctuation mark which is also called long quotation or extracts quotation. It is a quotation in a written document that is set off from the main text as a paragraph or block of text, and typically distinguished visually using indentation and a different typeface or smaller size quotation. This is in contrast to setting it off with quotation marks in a run-in quote.  Apart from quotation marks not being used to enclose block quotations, there are no hard-and-fast rules for the exact formatting of block quotations. (Susan, pg. 360)
In conclusion style for using a block quotation is preferred when extracting text that has 100 words or more, or approximately six to eight lines in a typical manuscript than using quotes. To a large extent the specific format may be dictated by the method of publication such handwritten text, typewritten pages, or electronic publishing as well as the typeface being used.
