Template:Cquote is a template meant for centred "pull quotes", the visually distinctive text that is already present in the same article.

  • One might recommend it:
  • Pull quotes work best when used with short sentences, and at the start or end of a section, as a hint of the section's content.
  • For shorter pull quotes of 50 words or fewer in a similar style, consider using Template:Rquote, which sets the quote off to either the right or left as in a magazine sidebar.


  1. {{cquote|quote text}}
  2. {{cquote|quote text|author=author or speaker}}
  3. {{cquote|quote text|author=author or speaker|source=title of article, speech, book, etc.}}


Parameter 1
text of the quote; use <br /> between paragraphs.
Note: if the quote text contains one or more "=" (equal signs), then the template must be called as {{centered pull quote|1=quote text}} (see "Equals sign in parameter value")
Name of the person that wrote or spoke the text being quoted. Can include wiki syntax.
Source of the quote (publication title, speech, etc.). Can include wiki syntax.
The color of the background.
When set to "yes", the quote expands to the entire width of the page. Useful for small quotes, but may clash with other floating objects, such as infoboxes.

Simple example

{{cquote|quote text}}
Be not afeared: the isle is full of noises
