I have a .cls in which I have quite a bit of formatting... I'm trying to make a way of making my own "quote" formatting. I need to format my quotes centered, with a limited width for each line, and underlined (like a quote box). Should I do this with a custom \begin{} type? How do I do this?

Have you looked at the possibilities of the csquotes package? Maybe \fbox{\blockquote{...}} is alredy enough. – mafp Jan 26 '13 at 8:35
Do you want a box around the quote or every word of the quote underlined? – lockstep Jan 26 '13 at 11:58
I'd use a newenvironment for this, and base it on a list.... do you want every line underlined, or just the first? last? – cmhughes Jan 26 '13 at 17:36
