I'm writing my LaTeX document using the IEEE LaTeX template.

I sometimes use the \quote{some text here} command to block quote a single paragraph. It tabs the text one to the right.

Unfortunately this causes the text below it to also be tabbed one to the right.

How do I stop text below \quote{} from being misaligned?

The command \quote doesn't officially exist: it's there only because the quote environment uses it internally:

Some text to have something to say and to start quoting
a very famous sentence
Don't use footnotes in your books, Don.
which is a very good recommendation.
