first off, i did not read any other comments, i just quickly had to write this;

i have read many quotations in several books that had to be, so to speak, "rewritten" as to match recent adaptations to language/terms/accronyms(/tense in some cases, but i personally do not know how to use it with conflicting tenses - as some rarer ([sic] ?)* situations might call for - but hey, i'm not an english major) all i do know is that if you're adapting a quotation to match-up your writings grammatically, you can simply use brackets around the areas you had to omit and change

*i know that you should use brackets around wording that's supposed to be parrenthesized [sic] inside parenthesis, but i just didn't know what to do in that situation... so ya... there's the asterisk expaining my idiocies (is that the right spelling?)
