Not sure what the difference is between paraphrasing, summarizing and quoting?
Paraphrasing: "Paraphrasing involves putting a passage from source material into your own words. A paraphrase must also be attributed to the original source. Paraphrased material is usually shorter than the original passage, taking a somewhat broader segment of the source and condensing it slightly." from Purdue Owl
Summarizing: A summary is "much shorter that the original source. If your aim is to summarize a long passage, look for the author's most important ideas." from The Curious Writer
Quoting: A quote contains the exact words from a source. Don't forget to use quotation marks and cite the source.
