Hi There,

I am trying to create a title block within an article and have
struggled with the \vspace command.  I must confess I do not truly
understand this command since it seems to work haphazardly in my
experience.  Sometimes it seems to work if I put a blank line before
it but that did not work in this case.  I wish to encroach on the
white space at the top of a document to ensure I can fit a quote at
the bottom of the page.  Can anyone direct me?  Here is most of the
