# how do I quote a numbered list

January 31Hits:1

I want to make a document which replies to a list of points made in an article as follows:

" Topic point 1 text  point 2 text  Topic point 3 text" 


I tried to achieve this by writing:

\section*{\color{magenta}topic1} \begin{quotation} \section{point1} text \end{quotation}  \begin{quote} \section{point2} text \end{quote} ... 


This does not work, so I wish to learn how I should code to achieve this goal. I am using the \section to get the points numbered throughout the document.

I am not sure if this is what is required. The titlesec package was used to add color to section titles; an enumerate environment was used to produce a list; the resume feature provided by the enumitem package was used..

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text for the example

\titleformat{\section}
{\normalfont\Large\bfseries\color{magenta}}{\thesection}{1em}{}

\begin{document}

\section*{Topic 1}
\begin{enumerate}
\item \lipsum[4]
\item \lipsum[4]
\item \lipsum[4]
\end{enumerate}

\section*{Topic 2}
\begin{enumerate}[resume]
\item \lipsum[4]
\item \lipsum[4]
\item \lipsum[4]
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}
