Sure! Here's a random quote API:

API Endpoint: https://quotes.rest/qod.xml?category=inspire

The free plan that allows you to make a limited number of requests per day. To retrieve a random quote, you can use the provided endpoint with the "category" parameter set to "inspire."

Example Request:

GET https://quotes.rest/qod.xml?category=inspire

Example Response (XML):

  <quote>"The only way to do great work is to love what you do."</quote>
  <author>Steve Jobs</author>
  • It says not authenticated - and seems to need an API Key... are you sure this worked and you tested it out? "Sure! Here's a random quote API" also seems a very unusual way to word an answer Jun 25, 2023 at 13:26
