Rather than you loading the server by requesting the index page over and over just so you by chance can see different random quotes, here's a page where you can see three at a time..

Sen. Danforth: "There is nothing on the face of the album which would notify you if the record has pornographics material or material glorifying violence?"
Tipper Gore: "No, there is nothing that would suggest that to me."
Frank Zappa: "I would say that a buzz saw blade between the guy's legs on the album cover is good indication that it's not for little Johnny."

— The Senate Commerce Committee hearing on rock lyrics, from The Village Voice, 6 Oct 1985
