# Epigraph before \chapter and \section

I have read the epigraph documentation, but sadly I do not understand how to put my quote before the \chapter and \section entry (same page).

Could someone give me a hint, please?

    \documentclass[a4paper,
bibliography=totoc,
toc=listof,
listof=entryprefix
]
{scrbook}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

\usepackage[language=autobib,
backend=biber,
citetracker=true,
autolang=other,
style=authoryear-comp
]{biblatex}

\usepackage{epigraph}
\setlength{\beforeepigraphskip}{1.0\baselineskip}
%\setlength{\epigraphrule}{0pt}
%\setlength{\epigraphwidth}{.5\textwidth}
\setlength{\afterepigraphskip}{.25\baselineskip}
\renewcommand{\textflush}{flushepinormal}

\begin{document}
\part{PART}

\epigraph{Poor cultural foundations were a significant driver of the 2008–2009 financial crisis(in common with many past crises). Behaviors that do not meet banks’ desired values and conduct continue to be a problem.}{Group of Thirty (2015), p. 18}

\chapter{CHAPTER}
\section{SECTION}

Text.

\end{document}


You probably want to increase the amount of space before the chapter heading.

\epigraph{Poor cultural foundations were a significant
driver of the 2008–2009 financial crisis(in common

\section{SECTION}

Text.

\end{document}


The argument [20] is the distance of the bottom of the epigraph from the upper margin of the text block.

• Thank you! But now I have an issue that is already adressed in the manual. To gain more space between the the epigraph and the chapter, I use \dropchapter{15in} and \undodrop. Unfortunately the heading does not drop! Any suggestions? – TRJW Jun 14 '18 at 15:07
• @TRJW That's for the standard classes, you're using scrbook. – egreg Jun 14 '18 at 15:10
• Any ideas how I could modify this!? :S – TRJW Jun 14 '18 at 15:21
