I'm so damn clever

It took some doing to work out, but I added a new feature to my random quote generator.

It actually took almost two hours to work out, to ultimately add less than 5 lines of code.

Now I just need to add more quotes.

you should put the button above the quote 'cause as different length quotes are displayed, the button moves. So for rapid clicking, you have to keep moving the mouse to follow the button - it's annoying and really slows down the click speed.
