For a quotation, you cite it on the reference page the same way as citing other sources.

In this case, it should be name of author, work by the author where you quote from (in Italic), source, date of access.

It is necessary to list your date of access because web postings are often updated, and information available on one date may no longer be available later.

For example,

Wordsworth, William. Lyrical Ballads. Web. 10 May 2006.

You don't have to add URL to the citation. MLA no longer requires it since URLs can be updated anytime and the same quote can appear in multiple sources. So all you have to do is stating that it is from a 'web'. And the date you accessed it.
