I've been 'trained' to skip past anything that looks like a bold emphasised inserted item because they're usually ads. (It used to be a bit of a problem for me in modern textbooks because they'd put some main points in big colourful boxes for emphasis and my brain would be like "nope that's an ad" so I'd miss the main point!) So I'd often skip over the Quote of the Day automatically and occasionally would go back and read it.
Aside from that, I'm neutral about it. Never been big on quotes but sometimes they're good.
I decided to add them. Among other things, it reminds to go looking for a new one and I find I often find one that I'd forgotten but meets the criteria for my life at the moment or that of someone I know.
