No, you should only have to either click reply or quote, either one in order to quote the message you'd like to have quoted.

On my iPad, I have to hit “Quote” in the part I want to quote, then in my own message, I have to hit “Insert quotes...” and then it pops into place in my message.

If you click reply it will automatically quote the whole message.

If you click quote it copies it. You can highlight and quote just part of a message too. And multiple things can be in the clipboard.

Like Acy said, there's an insert quotes button that will be under the reply box if you have anything copied.
@emily91 , I think folks on phones may have more trouble with quoting, so if you're still having trouble you may want to specify what device you're using.

I hope something can help.
