Don't we already use "{{q|text}}" (Template:Q) for quoting text?,... How about Template:Cquote and Template:Rquote?. Al though, this template doesn't look bad either...

At the very least, it needs to be switched to a typeface and point size that fits in better with the rest of the article text, instead of an "eye-catcher" set off from the article, such as you might see in a magazine. Look at Hell Hath No Furries, for instance. It looks all wrong to my eye - the three quotes just sort of take over the whole display and marginalize everything else in the article. Whether we change this template or use one of the others suggested by Spirou, in that example at least it doesn't work in its present form. --mwalimu 21:22, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Okay for the sake of comparison, here are samples of each of the templates being discussed here. I've let the optional parameters default as often as possible, though in a couple of cases I was unable to get good results without supplying values:
