I was wondering would it be a good idea to start off a dissertation chapter with a quote from someone? Is it 'academic' enough or too casual? Gives me GCSE or A-level vibes so was wondering if it's good enough for a dissertation.

I probably wouldn't, I'm doing my diss at masters level and our supervisors pretty much said straight away to not do that as it's a bit corny and just fills up valuable space. Especially if it's a quote you feel as though you'll need to explain as that will come off as quite clumsy.
it's fine when you're writing a book but pointless for a diss
