## 6.6 Block quotes

We know from the Markdown syntax that paragraphs that start with > are converted to block quotes. If you want to add a right-aligned footer for the quote, you may use the function quote_footer() from tufte in an inline R expression. Here is an example:

> "If it weren't for my lawyer, I'd still be in prison.
>  It went a lot faster with two people digging."
>
> r tufte::quote_footer('--- Joe Martin')
