# How to prevent pagebreak in quote environment?

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}
