# [Tex/LaTex] Isn’t there any other way of doing double quotes in LaTeX besides “ + ”

macrospunctuation

The standard way of writing quotes and double quotes in LaTeX is with  and '', but I find them quite ugly. Isn't there something similar to \emph{}, but for quotes? I mean something like \quotes{quoted text goes here}.

I've been looking but couldn't find any, maybe you guys can.

\newcommand{\quotes}[1]{#1''}
