\begin{eg}\begin{egbox}
\begin{verbatim}US presidents ... pithy remarks:
\begi...
...uote}
The buck stops here.

\end{quote}\end{egbox}\end{eg}

Use the quotation environment for quotations that consist of more than one paragraph. Paragraphs in the input are separated by blank lines as usual:
\begin{eg}\begin{egbox}
\begin{verbatim}Here is some advice to remember:
\begi...

environments.
\end{quotation}\end{egbox}\end{eg}
