\begin{quote}
``No matter how far apart the particles are when we try to collect one of them the relative probabilities of finding it in different places are strongly affected by the `interference term' in the cross-section it is not really `free' \dots "
\end{quote}

How to prevent a page-break occurring mid-quote in the above sample?

    Welcome to TeX.sx! You can put this inside a minipage (\begin{minipage}...\end{minipage}) which is an unbreakable block of objects. – masu Oct 23 '13 at 16:31

    Put the quote into a samepage environment. – Keks Dose Oct 23 '13 at 16:36

Set \interlinepenalty=10000 in the quote environment:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\setlength{\textheight}{10\baselineskip} % Just for the example

\newenvironment{nbquote}
 {\quote\interlinepenalty=10000 }
 {\endquote}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[2]
\begin{nbquote}
``No matter how far apart the particles are when we try to collect
one of them the relative probabilities of finding it in different
places are strongly affected by the `interference term' in the
cross-section it is not really `free' \dots''
\end{nbquote}
\end{document}

Don't use " for the closing quotes, but a pair of apostrophes ''

This would be the result with the original quote environment

You can put this inside a minipage which is an unbreakable block of objects.

\noindent\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}
\begin{quote}
``No matter how far apart the particles are when we try to collect one of them the relative probabilities of finding it in different places are strongly affected by the `interference term' in the cross-section it is not really `free' \dots "
\end{quote}
\end{minipage}
