    ...in the footnote of a cover letter? The quote I'm wanting to put as a footnote is related to children and education and gives such a hint towards my educational philosophy. I would center the quote and format it with a small font so it's not too bold, but very subtle. What do y'all think?

    Sounds neat, as long as it is in a pretty small font - perhaps 9 pt - so as not to be too intrusive.

    I think it a wonderful idea! But like old-new said, I would make the font smaller than the body of the letter.

    I've put it on my cover letter, in the footer so it's way at the bottom, and it's 8 pt sized font.

    Thanks!

    Make sure that the quote is easy to read and easy to understand/interpret. I love the idea, but you want to make sure the people who read it will read it the same way as you read it :)
