I was wondering if there is any way to write something like a quotation or a motto in org mode, in a way that is differentiated from the rest of the text. For instance, it could be indented with a specific number of spaces, and has some sort of "padding" from the rest of the text. Thank you.


The standard Orgmode way to write quotations are quotation blocks:

This is quoted stuff. Org /formatting/ does work here.

In HTML export uses the <blockquote> tag for such blocks. You can define the style in org-html-head if you like.
