I don't think it is either of those. Typically quotes seem to go just before the first chapter and after everything else, dedications etc.

But always on a right hand page! At the book's beginning the first words of the book will always appear on a right hand page, same with chapters - so it should be the same with a quote.

Go look at a few typical books. You might be surprised how much you can learn about stuff like this.

Is the verse part of your book? Usually it goes right before chapter one (or prologue, if you have one). On its own page (start on the right).

I've never written a book, but shoudn't that be dealt with after the book has been sold?

If you're talking about an epigram, it goes just before Chapter One. It can either be on a page by itself, or it can go above the chapter.
