This plugin displays a random quotation upon page load pulled from a simple .csv file. You can provide any .csv file you like it should be of the format: source, “Quotation”

There are token css classes/ids to allow you to style the quotations however you like. The HTML outputed looks like this:

Dante Alighieri:

There is no greater sorrow than thinking back upon a happy time in misery.

You just need to add a #quotationSource and a #randomQuotation CSS rules or just let the chips fall where they may.
