Posting a reply w/multiple quotes

Okay, I didn't see this topic here and can't seem to figure it out for myself (now I feel very much the dumb-dumb).

HOw do I post ONE reply with quotes from different posts on a thread, so that the quotes are in the white box? Do you know what I mean? Copy and paste doesn't put it in the white box.

Basically you have to have 2 browser windows open and copy and paste the quotes from one browser, into the other browser where you are constructing your reply. Then you have to manually type the [quote] brackets around the text you wish to quote. Or in the one browser you can hit the quote button on the posts you want to quote, copy, and paste them in the other browser. If any of that makes sense. I'm sure other people do it differently, but that's just how I do it.

If I wanted to quote you both, this is how I would do it:

Hit the button to quote Sicy. Select all of that text and copy it.

Hit the back button on my browser and then hit the button to quote blm.

Before (or after) blm's quoted text, I would paste Sicy's copied text.

So how do you quote a news article or outside text - you want to post?
I've tried the brackets but it doesn't work in the quick reply box.

I'm sure I should know this...

Don't mind me, I'm finally getting around to practicing this.
