What should I do if several lines of my block quotation do not fit at the bottom of the page?

In a manuscript or student paper, it is fine for a block quotation to be split across two pages or for the entire quotation to be moved to the top of the next page. In a professionally published work, the publisher will determine how the quotation should be set.
