I'm using the quoting package environment to ... quote some text! And I'm trying to have some footnotes, related to the content of the quote, appear right under it.

I've tried to use the minipage method, as demonstrated here, but have failed to implement it: the text of the quote doesn't stay in its column, for instance, or I get an error message.

I've pasted the code that I have now and that works.

\documentclass[oneside,centered,twocolumn]{book}
\special{papersize=215.9mm,279.4mm}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

% QUOTE TEXT MARGINS %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\usepackage[rightmargin=0pt]{quoting}

% FOOTNOTES IN QUOTATION %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\usepackage[symbol]{footmisc}
\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\fnsymbol{footnote}}

\begin{document}

\blindtext

\begin{quoting}[leftmargin=\parindent]
    Immob was this too! A landscape of bleak solemnities punctuated with pratfalls both programmed and unprogrammed\footnote{Computers!}! A nation of unsmiling priests top-heavy with mission and frozen-mugged with dedication, stopping every so often, at every pratfall, to laugh at unholy glee at themselves\footnote{Your dog is nice.} and each other–at the symbols of their mission and the objects of their dedication. Here was ambivalence with a vengeance: a whole\footnote{The cake is pink.} inspired people plunging the dagger of the horselaugh into the bowels of its inspiration.
\end{quoting}

\blindtext

\end{document}
