A couple of approaches which might help would be either to make these 
elements into a group, which you copy and then edit the text frame 
(resizing and repositioning still necessary), or the second choice would 
be to save the quotations marks in the scrapbook (individually), then 
use them after you have placed, sized, and adjusted the text frame.  If 
you're doing a large number of these, writing down the relative 
positions of the elements will stop some of the fiddling and make sure 
they're all positioned the same.
