Quote Server

I'm writing a small program in java to pick a random quote and display it. Before I create a database and populate it, does anyone know of a quote server on the web that can be used like and the dictionary protocol? ( For those that don't know, you can query that server on a specific port to look up words.)

How about this one?

I'm sure if you search around freshmeat and sourceforge a bit you could probably find other usefull projects.

Thanks for your help. I think I'm just going to create my own, so I have more flexibility.
