How to Customize Quotes in Blogger

WHAT ARE QUOTES?
Quotes are used for quoting. Heh. Quoting defines:

► repeating or copying the words of another, usually with acknowledgment of the source
► citing or referring for illustration or proof
► repeating a brief passage or excerpt

DEFAULT QUOTES IN BLOGGER AND HOW TO USE THEM
Default quotes ain't much of a fun. Really. They are rather dull. And blank.
When you're composing the Post, and want to make a quotation, you will:

► highlight the part of the text that will be a quote
► and click on the quote button in the Blogger toolbar

SO, WHAT CAN WE DO?
Well, a lot! First, let's see what part of the code (CSS style)..

.post blockquote {
margin:1em 20px;
}
.post blockquote p {
margin:.75em 0;
}
..that's the one! You can find it easily going to LAYOUT ► EDIT HTML ► and scroll until you find it (use CTRL + F to make it easier)... and Replace by the Code Below
}
.post-body blockquote {
line-height: 1.3em;
}
.comment-link {
margin-left: .6em;
}
.post img {
padding: 10px;
}
.post blockquote {

}
.post blockquote:hover {
