I have a fairly easy javascript random quotes script template that could go in our sidebar, so if people have elitist quotes, I would be happy to put together a random quotes section....

Right, here we go:

"A wise question is half of knowledge." - Francis Bacon

"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." -E.B. White

Above all, for our own physical well-being if nothing else, ethical philosophy must not be left in the hands of the merely wise.

I'm proud to say that after a great deal of procrastination and a bit of trouble with javascript, the random quotes section is finally up -- look for it in the right-hand sidebar, just above all the logos!
