There are a number of possibilities to have multiline equations, but I am looking for multiline `\text{...}`

elements. For example:

```
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
\begin{equation}
a^3 + b^3 \neq c^3 \text{ I have discovered a truly marvelous proof of this,\\which this margin is too narrow to contain.}
\end{equation}
\end{document}
```

Is there a way to break that long text into two lines? The `\\`

does not work here.

## Best Answer

## Remarks

To reserve a box for text of a given size, use the

`\parbox`

macro.`position`

(optional): LaTeX will position the box, such that its center lines up with the surrounding text. Possible values can be`t`

or`b`

`width`

(mandatory): Specifies the width. The width needs a unit like`em`

,`cm`

,`ex`

, etc...`text`

(can be empty): Your text, of course.Keep in mind, that multiline text inside a box needs to be fit into the paragraph and therefore heavily disrupts your spacing!## Implementation
