Blockquotes

Sin­gle line block­quote:

Stay hun­gry. Stay fool­ish.

Mul­ti line block­quote with a cite ref­er­ence:

Peo­ple think focus means say­ing yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means say­ing no to the hun­dred oth­er good ideas that there are. You have to pick care­ful­ly. I’m actu­al­ly as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Inno­va­tion is say­ing no to 1,000 things.

Steve Jobs — Apple World­wide Devel­op­ers’ Con­fer­ence, 1997
