Can somebody tell me what is wrong with this:

%%Tweaked quote environment
\let\origquote\quote
\renewenvironment{\quote}{%
  \vspace{-0.5\parskip}
  \origquote
}%
{\endorigquote}

My goal is to reduce the spacing above a quote environment.

  • Environments are written without backslash, in \renewenvironment

  • Define also \endorigquote

\let\origquote\quote
\let\endorigquote\endquote
\renewenvironment{quote}{%
  \vspace{-0.5\parskip}
  \origquote
}%
{\endorigquote}
