A pull quote is a short excerpt from the main text passage, often featured beside it. Pull quotes draw attention to important information by giving it a more dominant position on the page.

A blockquote is usually set apart from the main text as a distinct paragraph or block, though within flow of text. They are usually external citations that aren't already included in the main body text.
