I just wrote
*I try not to post unfamiliar quotations or citations without explaining
them (unlike some), unless if someone, in asking for the quote, has also
asked for an explanation of it.*
Pretend I didn't write that gibberish, and let me try to get rid of it.
At times I may have posted selections from a work, or if it's short enough,
an entire work. I may have posted them without comment—if someone has asked
for an author's very words, but no more—or I may have posted the work and a
commentary, or provided a setting for it, more specifically its place in an
argument or discussion.
Both things have happened.
