# How to force latex to put a quote in one line?

I am currently writing a CV on LaTeX. I want to have a quote on the head of my modernCV, but latex puts ONE word into a second line. Can I make LaTeX put all the quote into one line?

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\moderncvtheme[red]{classic}
\usepackage[scale=0.8]{geometry}
\firstname{}
\familyname{}
\title{\textcolor{red}{\textsc{Curriculum Vit\ae}}}
\mobile{}
\phone{}
\email{}

\quote{\glqq quote \grqq \begin{flushright} -authorname- \end{flushright}}


And I don't mean that the authorname is in a second line (as a matter of fact of \flushright) but that the quote is one word too long to fit into one line.

flushright is a new environment that always starts a new line. if the author name is only one line, just use \hfill between the quote and the name. –  barbara beeton Aug 5 '12 at 12:08
The problem is, that the quote itself is split up into 2 lines. I want to have the author in a different line, that is why I put \flushright –  maad Aug 5 '12 at 12:28
This TeX code should do the trick (meant to replace quote in your code above):
\hbox to 0pt{\hss quote\hss}
