[Tex/LaTex] Beautiful quotes in documentclass article


Possible Duplicate:
“Inspirational” quote at start of chapter

I'm using \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}. How to do this beautiful quote by using \renewenvironment{quote} or having my own \newenvironment{myQuote}?


Best Answer

I took Gonzalo Medina's second solution in his answer to "Inspirational" quote at start of chapter and changed the following:

  • Instead of using the memoir class, the epigraph package (from memoirs author) is loaded;

  • \epigraphfontsize is replaced with \epigraphsize;

  • The etoolbox package is used to patch the internal \@epitext command so that \itshape works.



% \epigraphsize{\small}% Default
