How to site a quote in an essay

My uncle, a brilliant writer, used to use some creative strategy when it came to quotes. In his University History exams, he would write, “Was it not Winston Churchill who said, ‘All great men should be held accountable for their actions?'” (Or some other such nonsense remark). He would contrive the quote entirely, but felt that since it was phrased in the form of a question (…was it not…) he was off the hook. But his writing packed more punch as a result of the quotes. Needless to say, I’m not advocating this approach…just makes for a good anecdote.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry? (1–4, 21–24)
