Description

The HTML <blockquote> tag is used for indicating long quotations (i.e. quotations that span multiple lines). It should contain only block-level elements within it, and not just plain text.

Example

Live Demo
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML blockquote Tag</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <blockquote>Browsers generally render blockquote text as indented text. If your
         quoted text needs to display within a non-quoted paragraph, you should use the
         HTML q tag. Most browsers surround q text with quotation marks.</blockquote>
