Can I start an academic paper with a quote?

Question:Is it okay to start with a quote?

Yes, often academic writers will start a paper with a quote that pertains to the subject they are discussing. It is a great way to get your readers attention. :-)
I dont know of any rules that preclude it- it should be directly related to your paper though.
I would think that would be an excellent start.
However the rest of your paper would have to be related or relevant to the quote.
