## [O] LaTeX style command re-use but for within org-mode documents?

```Hi,

Today we are working on an org-document that contains a quote that
will re-appear multiple times within
the same document. Coming from LaTeX, my initial reaction is to create
a new command with \newcommand.
Trying to find something like that within org-mode set me down two paths.

The first was to consider utilize literate programming. This would be
a fine approach if I were publishing the tangled document, but I am
not. Additionally, it is not code, just human readable text (a quote).

The second thought was to learn about export filters. Stuff like using
\rarr works just fine no matter where you export, so I wondered if I
should follow a similar approach. I didn't pursue this further though,
I wanted to get some feedback first.

What is the standard approach for doing stuff like this?
