I asked my mother if she thought moving was a good idea? She said,"Honey, my mother told me,'when in doubt do without. '"

A quote within an existing quote is referred to as a "nested quotation". An example of this would be "It is a great thing when children cry, 'I want my mommy! '" A lot more common than most of us would think but now that you know how to recognize a nested quote you can point them out often.
