Quotes in essays

posted by .

I want to put a quote at the very beginning of my essay. How do I go about doing that? Should it be the same or a smaller font than the rest of my essay?
I'm planning on putting the quote, then starting a new paragraph to begin the actual essay. Should I center it? Skip how many lines between it and my first paragraph? My entire essay is double-spaced.
Thanks for any help in advance.

    I'd use the same font for the quotation, but of course enclose it in quotation marks. No additional spacing is needed.
