Question can I quote people not verbatimly ?

Hi, I'm Edgar, and I need to say that I am quite confused with quotations and responses. The question is how do you quote only the portion of a message or paraphrase a message ? because until then, I could only quote people verbatimly

Yes, when you quote someone you can just delete the parts you don't want to quote from the message box.

But also if you dont quote some one verbatimly, your not really quoting them, your really taking what they said and re saying it in your words
Theres a difference
