Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

Usage

This template is for epigraphs or pull quotes meant to stand out, not for regular long quotations. The difference from {{quote}} is that the {{epigraph}} attribution has the same text size as the quote (instead of being slightly smaller).

The quote parameter is required. The cite parameter is optional. Cut-'n'-paste:

{{epigraph
| quote =
| cite =
}}

Examples

{{epigraph
| quote = The tank of the Spanish Civil War: T-26B
| cite = Lucas Molina Franco
}}

Result

The tank of the Spanish Civil War: T-26B

—Lucas Molina Franco

With a note

{{epigraph
| quote = The greatest caution must be used in deducing general lessons from this war: a little adroitness and it will be possible to use it to “prove” any preconceived theory
| cite = Anonymous British attaché to the Spanish Republic<ref>Zaloga, [http://libraryautomation.com/nymas/soviet_tank_operations_in_the_sp.htm"Soviet Tank Operations"]</ref>
