From the wiki:

This suggestion comes from UCLA; it assists you in keeping track of sources. When you add a note set its color (click on the colored box by the title) according to the following scheme.

  • Red indicates a direct quote [often a clipping] – make sure you note the source
  • Blue indicates a summary – make sure you note the source if it isn’t “common knowledge”
  • Green indicates a paraphrase  - make sure you note the source if it isn’t “common knowledge”
  • Purple indicates personal thoughts – others will need to quote you

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
