# [XeTeX] enumerating quotations

Well I came with this command that works and looks like I want:

\newcounter{myquote}[chapter]
\renewcommand{\themyquote}{\arabic{myquote}}
\newcommand{\myquote}[1]{
\refstepcounter{myquote}
\begin{quote}\textbf{T. \themyquote} #1\end{quote}}

Now, I would prefer it to be an environment and not a command. Could
somebody help me to translate this into environment definition. I
tried, but I couldn't.

thanks,

Now, I would like to have a numbered label to refer back to these quotations along the book. So, I would like the \quote environment to behave somehow like \figure so that the quote is auto-numbered and labels located inside \quote get also an automatic number.
