20 Photos Showing Why It’s Important to Know Your Quotation Marks

 Quotation marks are a vital part of punctuation. In story-telling, they are best used to denote dialogue between characters. We also use them to demarcate important phrases and words of wisdom passed on by people of significance. Essentially, quotation marks are used to represent the exact words spoken or written by another person. They also have a slightly different and more comedic use, marking either disbelief or sarcasm in certain words and phrases. However, there are numerous people on this planet who, usually unknowingly, choose to use quotations as a means of emphasis, far from their intended or assumed use. The results, as you will see, are endless and absolutely hysterical.
