Quotations marks- examples: use punctuation as usual. Unless providing a citation, all punctuation goes INSIDE the quotation marks. IF the quotation ends a sentence OR A MAJOR SENTENCE PART, hold the punctuation until AFTER THE CITATION.
EXAMPLE: Lady MacBeth declares that her husband is "too full of the milk of human kindness" in two metaphors (1.2.40-70); one that compares his instinctively loyal and dutiful nature to a container that could hold "the milk of human kindness" (1.2..40-70), and another that compares the human capacity for kindness to milk. She means that his personality, were it a vessel that could hold something, is full to the brim with kindness. Furthermore, by comparing this trait to milk, she implies that his propensity for kindness makes him weak and harmless because milk is a mild substance that is often associated with children and babies.
